TEXT: 2 CORINTHIANS 4:13
_”And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak”
Faith is a spirit but will remain dormant if it is not activated. Every child of God has a measure of faith in him/her at the point of salvation. We are born again with faith. Romans 12:3 says “For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.” This means any believer who says he does not have faith, is talking out of ignorance because everyone has been given a measure of faith, all we need to do, is activate it and make it grow.
So, you have faith for everything you need, you just have to bring it alive. Now, if you really want your faith to come alive, one of the things to be doing is to consistently speak the word of faith. Faith is activated when the word of faith is constantly and consistently spoken. Our text says “And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak”. This means the spirit of faith will come on you at the proportion of which you speak the word of faith. Words release spirit, therefore the word of faith will release the spirit of faith on you.
In Mark 11, when Peter saw that the fig tree Jesus cursed had withered, he was asking how? Jesus said in verses 22 &23 “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” This implies that our words can fuel our faith. The bigger and bolder we talk, the better results we get. Psalm 81:10 says “I am the Lord your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt; Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it”.
Your mouth can turn your faith on when you constantly declare what the word of God says about you. If it seems you do not have faith for anything, just try this, say what the word says concerning you and the situation with all your heart and you will see changes within and around you. The word of God says ” You are the head and not the tail, you are above only and not beneath, you are more than a conqueror through Christ who strengthens you. You are blessed and not cursed, by His stripes you have been healed, all things are working together for your good, the lines are fallen unto you in pleasant places and you have godly heritage. Greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world. You are fruitful and not barren, you are far above principalities and power” Hallelujah.
Father, I thank you. I activate the spirit of faith by speaking the word of faith. I declare, lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places and I have a goodly heritage in Jesus’name.
