Let’s go back to the beginning to find out why speaking your faith is the way we are to use it to get results.
Genesis 1:1-3 (KJV) 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
I want you to notice that even though the Spirit of God was hovering over the over the face of the deep in total darkness, nothing happened until God literally spoke His faith-filled Words, “Light be!” And light was.
God just didn’t wave His hand over the darkness and poof light was. No, He actually had to speak those Words for it to happen. Why? Because that’s how He has set it up to work and that’s how it will work for us if we’ll do the same thing that He does because we’re made in His image. [Genesis 1:26]
Next I want you to notice that in chapter one of Genesis, when God did something, He said it first. That’s how He called it into being. There are ten times that God said, and each time it came to pass. Why is it written this way? Why didn’t the writer just say, “God said” and then list all the things that God said? Here’s the reason:
God was making a point that if we want our faith to work, we must speak it forth. This is key to using our faith. That’s how God did it and does it, and that’s how we are to do it.
