Proverbs 6:2 2 you have been trapped by what you said, ensnared by the words of your mouth
Word is powerful: It can kill you or bless you. They say that the solution to any problem is just right under your nose, which is the mouth. We just have to proclaim it and believe in it.
Remember that God created things through Words as in :Genesis 1 33 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
Jesus said in: Mark 11: 23 “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.
Jesus is implying that word is powerful, but it can only be done with faith. so, we must speak in faith for the word to become reality. However, there is no man who has such huge or great faith such as God that there is nothing impossible. Human has limited faith and which faith is given by God.
However, Jesus said in Luke 17: 6 6 He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.
In Roman 10: 9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
The word saved here means saved from everything : illnesses, poverty, addiction, relationship problem or any situation that you would want a way out, and the last saved from fires of hell. When Jesus gave Himself to the cross, we indeed receives these bountiful graces. See below verses of God’s bountiful grace aside from salvation.
Hebrews 4:14-16, 14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. 16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Hindi ba’t kasabihan na kapag nagsalita ka ng negative , it happens. However, even if you say negative things , but within the realm of your mind is not what you meant, it will still not happen… because mind and words goes together to have its effect. It’s like saying without thinking. If you say it and mean it, there goes the effectiveness of what you declare. Therefore , if we declare things we desire and claimed it to happen….just have to wait to make it happen because God said we need to say it with faith.
Example : Your doctor found illness in you. Your tendency is to think of that illnesses and your focus will be on it. The mind which we base our faith, if we keep it busy and focus on other things and coupled it with God’s word will eventually lose it.
SUGGESTION : Have a daily declaration of God good things in your life in Jesus name.
