In order for Faith to take root in our hearts we
need to get it there in abundance. So we need to
continually confess the word of God until it
becomes a reality to us. Quietly reading the
scriptures to ourselves is fine, but Faith needs
to TALK! If we only "think" the word it will
fade. Remember in James about the man and his
image in the mirror? He walks away and forgets
his own face. We need to "Talk" our Faith, every
day. As we find the scriptures that concern our
needs, we need to write them down and read them
out loud. You could even record them on tape,
with your own voice. Because it we need to hear
it come out of our own mouth.
8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from
your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day
and night, that you may observe to do
according to all that is written in it. For
then you will make your way prosperous, and
then you will have good success.
Yes the word in Joshua 1:8 does say to meditate
on the word, but it needs to be more then that.
If we speak it, it becomes a reality to us. It
is not just words on a page, it becomes a living
There are forces and laws at work in this world.
Our Faith filled words will dominate the forces
of death that would come against us. Satan
operates in the force of death. If he can get
you to speak death or negative words out of your
mouth, he will dominate you with them.
How many of you have said: That scares me to
death! That tickles me to death!
I am just dying to go!
Those are Satanís words, not Godís. Death is not
a part of my vocabulary.
I refuse to give Satan a toe in. I don't allow
the word "death" in my conversation.
v2 For we stumble
in many things, If anyone does not stumble in
word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle
the whole body.
v5 Even so the tongue is a little member and
boasts great things. See how great a forest a
little fire kindles.
v6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of
iniquity. The tongue is so set among our
members, that it defiles the whole body, and
sets on fire the course of nature, and it is set
on fire by hell.
v7 For every kind
of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of
the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind.
v8 But no man can tame the tongue. It is an
unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
v9 With it we bless our God and Father, and with
it we curse men...
v10 Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and
cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to
v11 Does a spring send forth fresh water and
bitter from the same opening?
v12 Can a fig
tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine
bear figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water
v13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let
him show by good conduct that his works are done
in the meekness of wisdom.
No man can tame the tongue, but the word of God
can. As we learn to speak the Word, we will tame
the tongue. We see here how powerful the tongue
is. We can use it for good, or bad. We can speak
the words of God, or the words of Satan.
Anything contrary to the Word of God is of the
devil. You canít get around it. There is no
middle of the road. Either you are speaking
Godís words, or Satanís. So in order to speak
Godís words, Faith needs to talk. The more we
speak Godís words out of our mouth, the less we
will have the desire or idea to speak what the
devil wants us to say. Now you may think this is
a little extreme, but I am speaking the word of
Romans 14:23 Whatsoever is not from faith, is
James says that it if we can bridle the tongue,
we can control our whole body.
If we are constantly speaking negative words and
words of doubt and unbelief, our whole body will
reflect it. We will be sick all the time and
have no self control of any kind. It also is the
starting point, like kindling, to start a whole
lot of trouble both for ourselves and for
others. We will walk in defeat, and never see
the fulfillment of our Faith, and Godís will in
our lives. We will get discouraged and feel like
the world is falling in on us.
On the other hand, if we are speaking words of
Faith and hope, we will start to walk in health
and prosperity, in every area of our lives. We
will speak words of life into our own heart and
also to those around us. And in the same way,
our little match will start a world on fire for
God. We will walk in Victory and see the
fulfillment of our Faith, and Godís will for our
lives. We will have hope and feel like a whole
new world is opening up to us.
Can you see how this works in the Negative and
the Positive? Which do you want? If you want
Victory, stop speaking defeat. If you want
health, stop speaking sickness and death. If you
want prosperity, stop speaking poverty over your
life. Learn to let your "Faith Talk!"

The confession of the Word coming out of our
mouth, is Godís voice in this earth. Let your
Faith talk and see what God will do! We are
fighting a Spiritual war, not a physical one. We
need to use Spiritual weapons. The Word is
Spirit and it is Life! As we speak it in our
lives, things happen in the spirit realm. Forces
that were against us must leave because Godís
Word is at work. Start to confess the Word of
God over your life and watch and see what
