 MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

 

______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB

 

 

 

OUR WORDS ARE THE COINS [CURRENCY] IN THE KINGDOM OF FAITH

 

 

"sense knowledge" - that which is perceived by what one feels, hears, sees or thinks based on their outward circumstances; that which is perceived [and expressed] through the soul [mind, will, emotions] - apart from "revelation" [the Holy Spirit - Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation];

 

*____Few of us realize that our confession imprisons us. The right kind of confession will set us free. It is not only our thinking; it is our words, our conversation, that builds power or weakness into us.

 

____Our words are the coins[currency] in the kingdom of faith. Our words snare us and hold us in captivity or they set us free and become powerful in the lives of others. It is what we confess with our lips that really dominates our inner beings. We unconsciously confess what we believe. If we talk sickness, it is because we believe in sickness. If we talk weakness and failure, it is because we believe in weakness and failure.

 

____It is surprising what faith people have in wrong things. They firmly believe in cancer, ulcers of the stomach, tuberculosis, and other "incurable" diseases. Their faith in those diseases rises to the point where it utterly dominates them, rules them. They become absolute slaves.

 

____They get the habit of confessing their weakness, and their confession adds to the strength of their weakness. They confess their lack of faith, and they are filled with doubts. They confess their fear, and they become more fearful. They confess their fear of disease, and the disease grows under the confession. They confess their lack, and they build up a sense of lack that gains the supremacy in their lives.

 

____When we realize that we will never rise above our confession, we are getting to the place where God can really begin to use us.

 

____You confess that by His stripes you are healed; hold fast to your confession and no disease can stand before you.

 

____Whether we realize it or not, we are sowing words, just as Jesus said in Luke 8:11: "The seed is the word of God." The sower went forth to sow, and the seed he was sowing was the Word of God. This is the seed we should sow. Others are sowing Sense Knowledge seeds of fear and doubt.

 

____It is when we confess the Word of God, declare with emphasis that "by His stripes I am healed" or "my God supplies every need of mine," and hold fast to our confession that we see our deliverance.

 

____Our words beget faith or doubt in others. Revelation 12:11 declares, "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony." They overcame him with the Word of God that was in their testimony. They conquered the Devil with words.

 

____Most of the sick that Jesus healed during His ministry were healed with words. God created the universe with words: faith-filled words.

 

____Jesus said, "Thy faith hath made thee whole" (Matthew 9:22). He said to dead Lazarus, "Come forth" (John 11:43). His words raised the dead. Satan is overcome by words; he is whipped by words.

 

____Our lips become the means of transportation of God's deliverance from heaven to man's need here on earth. We use God's Word. We whisper "In Jesus' name, demon, come out of him." Jesus said, "In My name you will cast out demons; in My name you will lay hands on the sick and they shall recover." (See Mark 16:17.) All with words!

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
