“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” (Mark 11:23).
Years ago, after spending an entire day in a church sanctuary praying, waiting on God, and reading and meditating on His Word, I lay down on the carpeting in front of the altar. I had come to the place where my mind was quiet. About that time, the Lord spoke to me in my spirit in as clear a voice as I’d ever heard.
He said, “Did you ever notice in Mark chapter 11, verse 23, that the word ‘say’ is included three times in some form, and the word ‘believe’ is used only once?”
I arose to a seated position and replied aloud, “No, I never noticed that!” (And there’s no telling how many hundreds of times I had quoted that verse.) Then the Lord said, “My people are not missing it primarily in their believing. They are missing it in their saying. They have been taught to believe, but faith must be released in words through your mouth. You can have what you say.” He added, “You will have to do three times as much teaching about the saying part as the believing part to get people to see this.”
Confession: I have what I say. I release my faith in words.
