Faith cannot function without spirit of words

Is speaking the abundance of the heart good or bad?

Many Christians don’t realize that faith without words won’t work anymore than words without faith.

Faith is a law and it takes both to set the law of faith in motion.

Once it is in motion, Matthew 12:34-35 says, "out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things."

Many Christians have not been taught these principles.

They speak words of doubt and unbelief in their daily conversation then when words of faith are needed, they say a couple of faith words and not being the abundance of the heart (spirit) don’t work because faith is a law.

Keep speaking words of faith and by reason of use, your faith will grow day by day.

This is good spiritual exercise.

If you want healing or prosperity, etc., keep your mind and mouth on the word of God where these things are concerned instead of talking about how bad you feel and the misery you are in.

Speak scriptures concerning healing (1Peter2:24), "by His stripes you were healed."

Hold onto that spiritual truth and the natural will have to conform because of the law of faith.

If I were healed then I am healed.

Keep up that confession.

Meditate on these words of God and they will begin to sink in and become the abundance, as the reality of the truth of God’s word belongs to you.

Victory and praise God!

When this happens it will not matter what the circumstance sound or look like you know you have it because you have the substance hoped for and faith will grow in God’s word.

Next, you will be able to move mountains. Amen.
