Whenever you face a problem in your life, do you spend time complaining and speaking ABOUT the problem – or do you speak TO your problem?
Mark 11:22-24 NKJV
So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
Jesus said that we should speak TO the mountains in our lives. Jesus said that our words have power. Jesus teaches us that if we speak and do not doubt, whatever we speak will happen. Jesus taught the disciples the power of our words after the disciples noticed that the fig tree that Jesus spoke to had withered because it did not bear fruit.
Because of sin, some people in life are more inclined to doubt or believe the negative as opposed to believing the truth of God’s word.
When Jesus healed people, He spoke it; When God created the Earth, He spoke it into being.
God wants us to speak to our situations or mountains in order to cause change rather than to just complain or sulk about them. What is key, is that we do not doubt, but we must believe as Jesus says.
Proverbs 18:20 NKJV
A man’s stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth; From the produce of his lips he shall be filled.
Do you want good things to happen in your life? Do you want to prosper in your life? Start by guarding the things you speak about. Prophesy, declare and decree great and Godly things into your life. Speak the promises of God into your life and in your circumstances.
Stop talking about how broke you are. Stop talking about what you cannot do. Stop talking about how bad the economy is.
Start speaking the word of God in your life. God’s word when it is spoken will never fail.
Isaiah 55:11 NKJV
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
If you want to remove the mountains in your life – speak God’s word TO your mountains. God’s word will accomplish what He pleases and will not return void.
Everything submits to God’s word including the trials in your life. So speak God’s word to cause change.
