You Will Have What You Say

Mark 11:22-24 (AMPC) says 'And Jesus, replying, said to them, "Have faith in God [constantly]. Truly I tell you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be lifted up and thrown into the sea!' and does not doubt at all in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him. For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust and be confident) that it is granted to you, and you will [get it]." I want you to notice something right off the bat about what Jesus is saying here. Notice that believe is only mentioned once, but saying, relative to the believer, is mentioned 3 times. It's not that we have a problem with believing, but do we have an issue with our words? I can just about bet you that if you look at your life, you are living according to what you have been saying. Matthew 12:37 says 'For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.' This is hard for a lot of people to understand. How did God create everything that we see? Genesis 1 starting at verse 3, it begins with 'Then God said...' God spoke what He desired to be. We are created in His image and His likeness. We have been given a voice by God Himself because we were created to live by our words. What about the woman with the issue of blood that had suffered for 12 years? Mark 5:28 starts with 'For she said...' I could give you scripture after scripture about receiving exactly what you say. Look at Numbers 13 and 14 when they sent 12 spies into Canaan to spy out the land. Only 2 (Caleb and Joshua) spoke good words, and notice, they were the only two of the generation that left Egypt that actually entered into the promised land for Caleb said in Numbers 13:30 'Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.' But the other 10 said in verse 31, 'We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we.' They got exactly what they said. Caleb and Joshua received exactly what they said. They said that they were well able to overcome it. The other 10 gave an evil report of unbelief and doubt, and they said they were not able to possess it and they never did. The entire generation that believed the evil report died in the wilderness. I really wish I had more time to discuss this, because we must realize that Jesus has taken care of all the work. We just have to walk in the victory that has already been provided for. The only fight we have is the fight of faith. 1 Timothy 6:12 says 'Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.' Remember, you had to confess that Jesus is Lord to be saved. It's what you say that counts. Your speech should line up with you heart. Romans 10:8-10 says 'But what does it say? "The word is near your, in your mouth and in your heart" (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.' Your words carry a lot of power in them. You need to be mindful of this and always be aware of your speech. You will have what you say.
