We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe , and therefore speak(2 Corinthians 4:13).
During His early ministry, the Lord Jesus displayed absolute mastery over the circumstances of life, including the forces of nature. On a particular occasion, He was hungry and walked to a fig tree, hoping to find some fruit to eat. But the tree was fruitless, as it was not yet the season for figs. The bible records that Jesus spoke to the fig tree and said, “…no man eat fruit of thee hereafter forever. And His disciples hard it (mark 11:14). The master talked to a tree; He spoke out for so loud, His disciples’ heard Him!
The next day, peter, recalling what had happened the previous day, called the master’s attention to the fig tree, saying, “Master, behold the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away” (mark 11:21). From his response, Jesus made us understand that we can talk to anything- we can influence anything, and effect any changes with our words: “for verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he said shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith (mark 11:23)
Here Jesus wasn’t talking figuratively as many people assume. Remember that in the previous verse, He had talked to a tree! He was showing us the power and efficacy of our words, and He proved it on numerous occasions. Jesus spoke to the winds and the waves, to fish in the water, to dead bodies, etc, and they all heard and obeyed Him. You too have been imbued with the same ability to effect changes with the word of God in your mouth, for “as He is, (Jesus), so are we in this world” (1 john4:17). Your faith filled words determine the quality of life that you live!
It doesn’t matter the situation or circumstance in which you’ve found yourself, you can effect changes with your faith filled words!
