How do you obtain the “God kind of faith”? Remember that Romans 10:8 says, “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart.” Again, whatever is in your heart comes out of your mouth. We could define “heart” in this instance as the subconscious mind. It’s where you store everything you have been listening to. As we have learned, what comes out of our mouths helps create our world because we are just like God in the way we function. Whatever we speak has the power to happen.
I want you to remember this truth because it will be the biggest test of your faith. What do you say in the midst of trouble? What do you say when faced with adversity? What do you say when things are not going your way? What you have been listening to will proceed from your mouth, because that is what is in your heart.
It is vital to have a constant diet of the Word of God so that it will be in your heart. It will nourish your heart so that, when you experience troubles, the Word is what will come out of your mouth, and you will create what the Word says.
May my lips overflow with praise, for you teach me your decrees. May my tongue sing of your word, for all of your commands are righteous.(Psalm 119:171–172) May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and My Redeemer.(Psalm 19:14)
Father, may my words reveal that Your Word is fixed in my heart. Then my heart and my words will be truly pleasing in Your sight. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Thought: When you experience troubles, the Word should proceed from your mouth.
