The miracle is in your mouth!
Thus far we've been dealing with how we should speak to people. We must also learn how we should speak to our problems.
What do you do when the mountain of difficulty is blocking the way to your destiny?
Do you curse the mountain? Complain about the mountain? Cry before the mountain?
The people of faith have another option: You can command the mountain to be removed!
Mark 11:22-24 "Have faith in God," Jesus answered. 23 I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
Notice two things:
First, what you say is what you believe.
What you believe has to do with your faith in God. Faith is the foundation of the Christian life.
Without faith it is impossible to please God. With faith it is impossible not to please God.
Have faith in God, believe that all things are possible with Him!
But faith in God is not in the mind, it's in the heart and expressed through the mouth.
Faith must be confessed.
To confess is to say the same thing in agreement. The confession of faith is to say the same thing in agreement with the Word of God.
Faith that is not confessed is incomplete and inactive.
Faith is like the wire that connects the appliance to the power source. There is more than enough power to run the appliance, but you need to turn on the switch of the confession of your mouth.
What have you been saying and confessing with your mouth?
You cannot believe one thing and confess another thing. What you confess must agree with you believe.
Don't hijack or sabotage the miracle that you want from God.
Ultimately what you confess reveals what you truly believe.
Matthew 12:34 "You brood of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak what is good? For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart."
Your heart is like a sponge, only when squeezed then you will know what it has been filled with.
What you say is what you believe, and what you say will reinforce what you believe.
Second, what you say is what you receive.
Do you want to receive a miracle? It's found in your mouth, because God does what you say!
This is not a scandalous, prideful disregard of God's sovereignty. Rather, it is to understand that you must confess what you believe before God will do it. Therefore, God does what you say.
This doesn't mean that you can't pray silently. But most of the time you should say it out and pray out loud.
It's time that you stop talking about your problem and start talking to your problem.
Stop complaining to God about how big the mountain is, start commanding the mountain about how big your God is.
The size of the mountain matters not to God. He only asks that you have faith and start speaking to the mountain.
Many examples in the Bible:
1. God told Moses to speak to the rock
2. The Israelites shouted and Jericho wall fell
3. Ezekiel prophesied to the dead and dry bones
4. Zechariah spoke to the mountain - Zechariah 4:7 “What are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the top stone with shouts of "Grace, grace to it!"
Does it mean that you cannot admit your problem? Not at all!
We do not deny the presence of problems, we simply deny the power of these problems.
Stop talking about the problem, start talking about the answer, the solution, the promises of God!
Joel 3:10 Let the weak say, "I am strong."
Let the poor say, "I am rich!" Let the blind say, "I can see!"
The miracle is indeed in your mouth!
