You Can Have What You Say!
Growing up in a little holiness Pentecostal church I always heard negative confessions and testimonies from God fearing saints. I always wondered why they were broke, busted, and disgusted all the time, but faithful to the house of God? Then I heard the “Word of Faith” teaching from the late Kenneth E. Hagin. Now I had always heard bad things growing up in the holiness Pentecostal movement about “name it, claim it” preachers and the “word of faith” false doctrine ect.. But I soon came to realize the truth about the Word of Faith, and just how right Kenneth Hagin was about it!
You see one must look no further on the subject than the Word of God itself. The Bible makes it very clear that we can have what we say! I remember reading a book by Kenneth Hagin on the subject with the key scripture being Mark 11:23 “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.” Now wait a minute! Kenneth Hagin didn’t write the Bible? So how did that scripture get in there? And it is in red letters to boot? Wait just a minute, so Jesus really did teach Word of Faith! We can have what we say! Wow! And from there I begin my journey to understanding the power of a faith confession.
Faith is so important to our relationship with God that even our salvation is dependent upon it. Romans 10:9 declares “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.” There it is! The ultimate faith confession that Jesus is Lord! That is the first step to being a believer! The first step to being born again! You must believe in your heart and confess with your mouth. Your words are important to God. You see your words confirm what is in your heart. For Luke 6:45 says “of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.” The spoken word confirms your thoughts and your desires. The same is true with God. His words confirm His thoughts and desires, and His desire is to save us, bless us, heal us, and protect us from all harm and danger!
Again, in Mark 11:23 “he shall have whatsoever he saith.” You can have what you say today! What a powerful promise from the Lord Jesus Christ Himself, that if we declare a thing and believe it, it will come to pass! Now to understand a little better this passage of scripture we need to put things into context. Earlier on in Mark 11 verse 14, Jesus had cursed the fig tree for not producing fruit on it when He wanted fruit. So, Jesus spoke to the fig tree and commanded it not to produce fruit thereafter. His disciples were amazed on the next day that it had withered and had no fruit just as he commanded it. This is a prime example of a faith proclamation, or faith confession, or some might say a declaration.
What this means for you and me today is this, we have the power through faith to speak to things in our life. We can say to that problem go away! We can speak to that sickness be healed! We can speak to those finances increase! We can declare things in the Spirit and watch them come to pass! When we release our faith and confirm it with our words, Heaven opens, and the supernatural power of God flows out! When we have faith in the God that created everything, we can speak to anything and it has to obey! So likewise, when you pray believe that you receive it and you shall have it! Always remember prayer is the key, but it is faith that unlocks the door!
Many times in my life, my wife and I have had to speak to the mountains that were in our way! We have had to declare the promises of God and focus our thoughts on the Word of God! The enemy will try to discourage you and get your focus off what God said, but just remember he is a liar and a master deceiver. God will not be mocked, what He said He will bring to pass. If God said it, I believe it, and that settles it! I am going to stand on the Word of God no matter what the circumstances look like! I will” act as if” so to speak, as though it is already taken care of.
That problem or situation may look bad today, but tomorrow it’s going to change! I have the power to speak to it and it has to obey! This concept may seem strange to the carnal man, but just remember Jesus was a miracle man! He has the power to walk on the water of life’s circumstances. God does not need things to be right for Him to work them out. God is the master coder. He wrote the code for everything we now see and feel. He made the atoms and the cells that make up all of creation. He spoke the worlds into existence. He breathed life into man and man became a soul. So, by this we know that if we believe, God can do the impossible! He can make something out of nothing! He can make a way out of no way! He can cause your answer to materialize right this very instant! God is a God of miracles! He is the God of more than enough! He is the God that answers by fire! He is the God that can not fail! Have faith in God! Speak to your situation today! Say what you want! Then receive what you want! God bless you!!
