I was with a group of friends one day at an event. We were all greeting each other, suddenly one of them grabbed me by the arm and asked me to pray for her because she had a headache.
I looked at her for a second. Then I said to her, “Let the weak say I am strong.” You may recognize that line from a worship song by Don Moen called Give Thanks.
My friend just looked back at me like, “What!?” I said, “Say it! I’m strong.” So, she repeated, “I’m strong.”
Even though she said it, she still looked perplexed, but in that moment, I understood even more that God’s Words are not just any old words. They have power. And sometimes it’s so simple we miss it.
Let’s look the Word that this principle came from in Mark 11:23 NASB 1995.
23 Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him.
One of the key words in this verse is “SAY.” Whoever says…
We say a lot of things not really thinking like…
- I can’t remember anything
- I don’t have any money
- I’m sick and tired
Or it’s the I nevers, I cant’s, or the I always.
I want you to think about the things you are constantly saying to yourself or others.
The Word says if you can SAY to a mountain, a problem, a challenge, be taken up and cast into the sea, then couldn’t the opposite be true?
Are we speaking in existence our own negative circumstances? “Why can’t I get healed?” Because you just said you weren’t healed when God already said you were.
Isaiah 53:5 NKJV reads,
5 But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
I don’t know about you, but my parents used to tell me “Watch your mouth!” Usually, it was when I was about to get full of myself.
But I believe the Father is also telling us to watch our mouths and say what He says about us, and to do what He tells us to do. Speak to that mountain…
So, are we speaking fear or faith, death, or life?
Oh yes! My friend told me about 5 minutes after she said, “I am strong” the headache went away.
Until next time, speaking faith, that’s the point of purpose…see you next time.
