Spiritual Exercise #5: How To Speak Faith To Move Mountains!
How to Declare Your Faith
1. With God all things are possible.
2. You only need faith the size of a mustard seed to move a mountain.
3. When you declare faith you speak the truth.
For today’s spiritual exercise all you need is to decide to speak faith.
Exercise goal: Speak Faith!
To learn to declare faith in order to change your circumstances.
There are many obstacles we face in our lives. Some are difficult and others seem impossible. However, when you come up against one of these situations, instead of telling yourself and others that it is impossible, declare faith instead. For example, when you have no money declare that your Heavenly Father owns the cattle on a thousand hills. Say, defiantly, I have access, through my God, to the wealth of the nations. Or, if you are sick, instead of saying “I feel badly” say, “By Jesus stripes I am healed!”
When you speak faith it is more than positive mental attitude
This is not positive mental attitude like the world teaches. This is simply declaring, by faith, what is already true. We are the kids of the King and our heavenly Father is really rich! Jesus took all the effect of our sin upon himself on the cross, including our sickness. That is why we can lay hands on the sick and they are healed.
In this exercise, speak faith to every situation. It does not matter if it seems possible. It does not matter if you feel like it can happen. What matters most is to speak the truth by faith so that your heavenly Father will see you standing firm with Him and take care of the situation for you.
When you speak faith you create
Words have creative power,that is why God “said” let there be light instead of just thinking about it. There is an old saying, “like father like son” and so, as children of the most high, by faith, we speak what we desire and it happens too. In fact, God thinks it’s kind of cute when we do that, and so gives us what we ask for even if we don’t do it just right.
Note: Natural feelings or reasoning are not relevant to this exercise. You are training yourself to speak truth by faith, no matter how difficult a situations seems. In fact, the more hopeless or impossible the challenge the more benefit you receive from doing this exercise. Speak your will into the world by faith, and so change your life for the better through God.
When you speak faith you move the hand of God. You build up a resistance to unbelief. Speak faith, which is just the truth, and it God will be encouraged to solve your difficulties and move mountains in your life. Remember, this is not Hocus Pocus, this is a simple and defiant declaration of the truth by faith meant to encourage God to change your life for the better. God does the heavy lifting so it is not based upon your ability: so don’t struggle, relax.
Exercise your faith!
Through practicing this spiritual exercise you will have a better outlook on life. When you speak faith , God will more on your behalf to solve major challenges in your life — supernaturally by divine intervention. For it is written,
“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
Note: be sensitive to others when you are doing this exercise. It is not necessary to speak loudly or even publicly unless God leads you to do so. Allow the Spirit o lead and pray for God’s wisdom. This exercise is primarily for your benefit.
P.S. share your testimonies of what God does for others to read…it will be a great encouragement to everyone!
