Hebrews 1:3b (KJV) 3 … and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
Notice that God upholds all things by the Word of His power. When He spoke the universe into existence, He did it with His Words. His power has always been and ever will be in His Word. And things haven’t changed. His power is still in His Word.
Therefore, since nothing’s changed, and God’s power is still in His Word, then when we speak His Word in faith, that power is still there. How awesome is that!
That being so, can we have the same results as God does? Absolutely! Let’s look at another scripture:
John 14:12 (KJV) 12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
How do you think you’re going to do the same works that Jesus did? By doing it the same way He did – by speaking His Word in faith! But, you might ask, “What if we don’t have that kind of faith?” Read on.
Romans 12:3b (KJV) 3 … according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
Everyone who is born-again, starts out with the same measure of faith. I call it your “lump” of faith. We all start out equally. But, in order to walk in the mountain-moving, God-kind of faith that we all want to, we have to develop our lump. This takes effort and diligence. It doesn’t happen automatically. You don’t just wake up one morning and and you’re a faith giant! No, that’s not how it works.
Faith has to grow and develop before you can actually walk in the fullness of what God has for you. This takes time–lots of time and effort. Nobody builds strong muscles overnight and nobody becomes a faith giant overnight.
2 Thessalonians 1:3 (KJV) 3 … because that your faith groweth exceedingly…
The point is that faith has to grow and if you want to speak words of power and see changes in the circumstances around you, you have to do your part: hear, study, meditate, and speak the Word of God so that it can get down into your heart where it can grow and develop into power-packed Words of faith when you speak. It’s very do-able but it’s entirely up to you.
Mark 11:23 (KJV) 23 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.
