The Power of Words

Living a Life of Faith

God never wanted His Church to struggle or be defeated. Instead, He has always planned for us to live in victory. God has already secured our victory through Jesus Christ. Everything we need for a godly life is already ours in Christ (2 Peter 1:3). This is a powerful truth that can transform how we live our daily lives.

Ephesians 1:3 (KJV) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.

. . . God has blessed us, in Christ, with every single blessing those in Heaven are currently enjoying. – NORLIE

Take a moment to think about this: God has blessed us with every blessing that exists in Heaven! The phrase “who hath blessed us” is in the past tense, indicating that these blessings are not something we have to wait for—they are already ours. The moment we accepted Christ, we inherited Heaven’s every blessing. This includes healing, prosperity, victory, peace, and joy. All of these blessings are available to us right now; God is not holding anything back from us.

Faith in Action

Faith is the key that unlocks these blessings. Hebrews 11:1 (AMP) says, “Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].”

The word “things” comes from the Greek word pragma, meaning “that which has been done, a deed, or an accomplished fact.” Our faith acts as a title deed, proving our ownership of everything Jesus accomplished for us through His death, burial, resurrection, and ascension. Faith gives us access to our inheritance in Christ—faith in the finished work of Jesus unlocks Heaven’s realities!

Imagine having the title deed to a beautiful home. You wouldn’t leave it sitting on a shelf; you would use it to claim and enjoy your home. Similarly, our faith should be active, enabling us to claim and enjoy all that God has provided for us.

Your Confession Rules Your Life

Faith works by believing God’s truth in your heart and speaking it out loud. A spiritual law that few people realize is that your confession controls your life. Why? Because you are made in the image of God (Genesis 1:26).

2 Corinthians 4:13 (KJV) We have the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak.

We are made in God’s image, and like God, we can speak things into existence (Romans 4:17). If you truly believe something in your heart and say it out loud, whether it’s positive or negative, it will happen. Jesus said it would.

Think about the power of your words. If you constantly speak words of defeat and failure, you will experience defeat and failure. Many Christians walk in defeat because their confession aligns with the problems they face rather than the promises of God. They talk about how the devil is stopping them, keeping them sick, broke, or in bondage. As long as they continue to speak this way, that’s what they will experience. They miss out on their inheritance in Christ!

E. W. Kenyon said, “The reason the majority of Christians are weak, though they are sincere, is because they have never dared to make a bold confession of who they are in Christ.” We must agree with God using our words!

Your words will either limit you or set you free! Therefore, find out what God’s Word says about you and make that your confession.

Practical Steps to Align Your Words with God’s Truth

  1. Know God’s Word: Spend time reading and meditating on the Bible. Understand what God says about you and your circumstances. Scriptures like Jeremiah 29:11 (“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”) can reinforce your faith.
  2. Speak God’s Word: When you face challenges, speak God’s promises rather than the problems. Instead of saying, “I am always sick,” declare, “By His stripes, I am healed” (Isaiah 53:5).
  3. Thank God in Advance: Gratitude is a powerful expression of faith. Thank God for the blessings and answers to your prayers, even before you see them manifested. This shows that you trust Him completely.
  4. Surround Yourself with Faith: Spend time with people who speak faith-filled words and encourage you to do the same. Join a faith community, participate in Bible studies, and listen to faith-building messages.
  5. Monitor Your Words: Be conscious of what you say. If you catch yourself speaking negatively, stop and replace those words with God’s promises. It might help to keep a journal of confessions based on Scriptures.

By aligning your confession with God’s truth, you open the door to experiencing all the blessings God has for you. Remember, your faith and your words have the power to shape your life. Choose to speak life, victory, and blessings into your circumstances. God has already provided everything you need—claim it by faith and watch your life transform!
