Your words matter!
You are the chosen generation, royal priesthood, holy nation, peculiar people (1. Peter 2:9)
And there was a woman who had had a flow of blood for twelve years, And who had endured much suffering under [the hands of] many physicians and had spent all that she had, and was no better but instead grew worse. She had heard the reports concerning Jesus, and she came up behind Him in the throng and touched His garment, For she kept saying, If I only touch His garments, I shall be restored to health. And immediately her flow of blood was dried up at the source, and [suddenly] she felt in her body that she was healed of her [distressing] ailment. And Jesus, recognizing in Himself that the power proceeding from Him had gone forth, turned around immediately in the crowd and said, Who touched My clothes? And the disciples kept saying to Him, You see the crowd pressing hard around You from all sides, and You ask, Who touched Me? Still He kept looking around to see her who had done it. But the woman, knowing what had been done for her, though alarmed and frightened and trembling, fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. And He said to her, Daughter, your faith (your trust and confidence in Me, springing from faith in God) has restored you to health. Go in (into) peace and be continually healed and freed from your [distressing bodily] disease.
Mark 5:25-34 AMPC
- Believe in your heart.
- Act in a way that proves your faith.
- Live a lifestyle of faith by speaking in faith.
The lifestyle of faith is lining your confession and your conversation with your faith!
Once you purpose in your heart to truly adjust your speaking in line with what the Bible says, you’ll see great results. In James 3:2 the Word says “.. if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way.”
“A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart.”
Luke 6:45 NLT
We are dealing with the faith of the heart:
“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
Romans 10:17 KJV
God has provided blessing, healing, provision, life and abundant life for you!
Faith of the heart, our action based on the Word, and our confession, and daily speaking that is based on what we believe.
Woman believed in her heart that Jesus had the power to heal her, she acted in faith by going to meet him, and her confession was: “If I only touch His garments, I shall be restored to health”.
Jesus told this woman that: “Daughter, your faith has restored you”. It was her faith that caused her to take action, and it was her faith that said she will be healed if she touches Jesus.
Nation of Israel was unable to enter the promises land due to the words that they spoke, Joshua/Caleb entered the promised land because of the faith that they spoke.
“We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;”
2 Corinthians 4:13 KJV
Just like the rulers of historical times reigned by decrees and declarations, according to Romans 5:17 we reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.” We are to reign in life by our confession!
“Inasmuch then as we have a great High Priest Who has [already] ascended and passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our [of faith in Him].”
Hebrews 4:14 AMPC
