SAY UNTO THIS
By Jemima Rayan
Jesus said, “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says
to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,
and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things
he says will be done, he will have whatever he says, “Therefore
I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe
that you receive them, and you will have them.” (Mark
11: 23, 24)
Have you ever thought about why would God want us to say to
the mountain? Mountains are the difficulties in life. For one
it may be a sickness and for the other it is their family and
for the other it is their finances. Whatever may be your mountain,
God wants us to say to the mountain. Yes, right now, say it
out loud! Hey mountain! Get out of my life. Your words have
Exercise your Faith:
Notice the word, “shall
not doubt in his heart”.
The 24th verse in another translation says, “Whatsoever
you desire, you shall have them”. This scripture in the
Bible talks about we, having what we desire. It is good to
read the scriptures. But, by simply reading or meditating will
not help your faith grow. It will for sure build a capacity
for faith. But we need to grow our faith. Faith must be fed
on the Word of God and exercising it. The Bible says, “Faith
without works is dead”. So, what is the point? Act that
faith. We have to be doers of the word not just hearers only.
We need to act on the word. By our daily speech, act and conduct
our faith grows. Faith has the capacity to grow. As your faith
grows, you begin to take what belongs to you. For example,
you hope for money. By faith you now have it. Fear becomes
a thing of the past. The same is true with bodily healing.
Sometimes we tend to say, “Yes, by your stripes, I am
healed but I am sick”. When you say that it means that
you have merely agreed upon the word of God. You have not acted
on it. When we act upon the scriptures, the word becomes real
to you. Now you say, “By your stripes I am healed and
I am not sick”. That is believing in divine healing.
If any kind of symptom attacks you, say, “Satan, don’t
you know that you can’t put that on me. Jesus took my
infirmities.” Now, stand on the authority of God’s
word. James said, “Count it all joy when you fall into
temptations”. He says that because of the confidence
he has on what Jesus did on the cross for you and for me. Weeping
may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. Hallelujah!
Joy always comes!
Confess to possess:
Confession is not confessing our
sin. Faith grows in the atmosphere the word of God is confessed.
Mark 11:23, “Whosoever
shall say but not doubt, shall have”.
We, as God’s children are not failing in believing but
in saying it. Let us admit that. The word of God declares, “The
word is night thee even in thy mouth as in thy heart”.
Unless we have in our mouth what is in our heart, your faith
is not fed. In other words the word of faith must not only
be in your heart and believed in your heart, it should be in
your mouth as well.
10:9, 10, “that if you confess with your mouth the
Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him
from the dead, You will be saved.” With the mouth confession
is made. Let the Word be in your mouth for it to work for you.
Never talk something else. Speak in line with the word. What
I confess I possess. If you want to wait till you get it in
order for you to confess it, it won’t work. God operates
by certain rules or laws. Christian life is called the life
of confession. “The law of confession means, I have a
thing before I receive it”. In other words, if you are
sick in your body, Confession means, “ I had my healing
before I consciously possessed it”. I confessed I had
my healing. The one, who believes, has. Simple! I don’t
have to see it. I don’t have to feel it. By faith I had
it. The confession of our lips comes before you see the recreation.
That is how you possess the promises.
Hold fast to your confession:
Our confession is the expression
of our faith. Hebrews 4:14 says, “Hold fast to your confession”. Holding fast
literally means to say, “I know He is able to perform”.
I know I am healed because Jesus said I am healed. By His stripes
I am healed. That is what Peter says in 1 Pet 2:14. We are
not planning to get our healing. We have our healing in our
body already. No matter what the symptoms are, we need to learn
this law. If we have to be successful, we need to boldly confess
and then we possess. God has spoken. My confession gives me
possession. Faith is governed by confession. Philippians
4:6 says, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer
and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made
known to God.” In nothing be anxious. Notice the word, “ With
thanksgiving”. And the peace of God will pass all understanding.
Why our prayer must be made with thanksgiving. When you give
God thanks for what you have in Christ, you give God the right
of way in your situation and would give God the glory that
rightfully belongs to Him.
For example, when you talk sickness
and weakness all the time, you will have plenty of it. Confess
lack and it will hold you
in bondage. Say, “I am healed”. Say, “money
will come”. Say, “I am more than a conqueror”.
Soon you will see your words come to pass.
said in Matthew 13:12, “For whoever has, to him
more will be given and he will have abundance; but whoever
does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.” It
will be given to the one who has. You have what you need. Quit
confessing lack. Never rob God of His glory by confessing lack.
May the Lord richly
bless you with His word in Jesus’ name.
