“But what saith it? The Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the Word of faith, which we preach; that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
God’s Word is the Word of faith, and it works according to the principle laid out in the Word. Faith principle from the Word works according to conviction in the heart and confession made with the mouth. The Word of faith will produce results, when it is in the mouth and in the heart. Even if it is in the heart and it is not acted upon by saying it with the mouth, it still will not work. Evidently, our opening Scripture tells us that the Word of faith is preached, which means it is proclaimed, announced, said or publicized. Why? It is preached that it might be heard, for faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word (Romans 10:17). When it is heard, it is believed, and when it is believed, there is rock solid conviction in the heart as to what it says and its settled realities. Then it must be confessed with the mouth to see the manifestation of these realities. It must be in the mouth and in the heart. The potent ability of the Word of faith in the heart cannot be realized in the physical until it is verbalized, spoken out loud. This is how it works! Therefore, confession of the Word is not just a theological creed, it is the principle of the Word of faith, which says the Word must be in your mouth and in your heart for it to leap into being for you.
Note carefully that the confessions of the Word of faith are based on settled realities of God’s Word, not on promises. We confess that Jesus is Lord, not that He will be Lord, and we believe that God has raised Him from the dead, not that He will raise Him. No matter the situation you are facing, God has said something about it, and He has done something about it in Jesus’ substitutionary work at Calvary. God’s Word spoken to you brings the assurance in your heart that Jesus is already Lord over the situation, and that He has been raised from death, which means there is no hopeless case anymore. Hallelujah! Then your confession must be in line with this settled reality in your heart. This is the operation of the Word of faith. So go ahead and speak the Word of faith.
My Solid Front (Confession):
In the Name of Jesus, I declare that the Word of faith is potent in my mouth and I get supernatural results always. Amen.
