"For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation" (Romans 10:10).
Beloved, it is not enough for you to merely know the Word in your heart. You must say it. That’s when latent power becomes actual power.
When our Lord Jesus was tempted in the wilderness, He did not merely think about Scripture. He spoke it out loud. You can memorize thousands of Scriptures, but if you don’t learn to say, “It is written,” and release the Word, there will be no power.
God’s power is there, but it is all lying dormant inside you. The moment you speak it out, it is as if God is speaking. God’s Word in your mouth is like God speaking.
Fear is not something you can reason or analyze away. Fear is irrational. There are some fears that come into your life and you can think to yourself, Come on, what are the chances of that happening? or It’s so silly to fear this.
But have you noticed that those fears still hang around? We are in a war, my friend, and the only way to defeat fear is to speak the Word of God to whatever fear you have by saying, “It is written.”
It is written—”For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Tim. 1:7).
Now, I want you to say this out loud: It is written—”For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” Do you feel the power that comes with saying this aloud?
This is the truth: God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. I don’t care what kind of fears you are battling with—fear of growing old, fear of contracting this or that disease, fear of losing your job, fear of failure. Whatever the fear that has come against you, declare, “It is written.”
What if the fear comes back? Then say it again! Sometimes, I speak Scriptures over my situation in the morning, in the afternoon, and in the evening. Whenever the fear comes back, I speak the Word of God.
If the devil wants a fight, give him one! Give him the sword of the Spirit and he will get the point every time. There are many Scriptures you can memorize. Write down the Scriptures that cover the areas of your need, and arm yourself with them!
Confess the Word daily and see a great turnaround in your life.
