2 Corinthians 4:13 (KJV) 13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
In past weeks, we’ve discussed how important our words are to our faith. I want to continue along this line and hopefully shed some more light on the topic to help you in your faith walk.
In our opening scripture we see that faith is a spirit. This shouldn’t be a surprise to you since we all know that fear is a spirit and it’s not from God. Faith also is a spirit and it is from God.
2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
According to 2 Corinthians 4:13 we have the spirit of faith and with that spirit of faith we are to believe and speak. We are not only to believe with our faith, nor are we only to speak our faith. We are to do both – believe and speak. And that lines up with Romans 10:9-10 where we are told to confess with our mouth and believe in our hearts that Jesus is Lord if we want to be saved.
As we have learned, faith is voice activated and therefore has to be spoken to be released. We can’t just think faith all day long and wonder why nothing is happening. We need to get our mouths in gear and speak what we believe. We need to take authority over our circumstances and expect change. That’s what God did and that’s what He wants us to do.
Genesis 1:28 (KJV) 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
