There are some great things that God wants to get to your house, but you have a part to play. The scripture says in Matthew 17:20, “Ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible to you.” This scripture shows the importance of speaking. Jesus is telling the individual believer to speak. To walk in the blessings of God, we are going to have to do some speaking because the authority of the believer is released through words. The speaking part of faith is essential, not optional. There is tremendous power in the words we speak. Kenneth E. Hagin said, “You will never have anything beyond your own words.” Faith must be spoken, not just at church or in prayer but in our everyday conversation. We can’t declare a faith “time out” and say, “Why isn’t the Word working for me?”
Sometimes people believe but they don’t release their faith with their words. Concerning the situations facing you in your own life, what are you going to say about them? Your faith is governed by your words. If you want to grow in your faith, you are going to have to say some things. Take your words seriously. If you say nothing, you will get nothing. Consider Joshua and Caleb. They said, “We are well able to take the land,” and the other ten spies said, “We are not able to take the land.” Every one of the twelve spies got exactly what they said. When you begin to say, you are on the way. Faith always has a voice. The problem is not your circumstances. It is the words that you speak about your circumstances. Never underestimate the power of your voice.
