LESSON: God spoke and the world was created. We have the same power to create with our words. In Deuteronomy, we are told to choose between life and death, blessings and curses. We have freewill to believe, receive and activate. Speaking out the word of God builds faith. Without faith it is impossible to please God, (Hebrews 11:6) It also says that God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. The Greek word for faith is pistis (pis-tis) and means moral conviction of truth or the truthfulness of God. Faith is its own belief system, a system that should be 100% God centered. We can make declarations that: We believe with all our hearts that God is who the Bible says He is: We believe that Jesus bore all of our sins and sicknesses: We believe if we lay hands on the sick they will recover. The Bible also says faith without works is dead, James 2:17. For too long the church has had a measure of faith but no works (laying on of hands) to activate the faith. I sometimes speak to my hands that these hands are healing hands, these hands will activate healing. Because of the religious spirit being so strong in our City, I do feel we need to change the atmosphere by the word, The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. Since people have been so much under the religious spirit, we have to remind them and activate their faith by giving an encouraging word and acknowledging the level of faith they are currently in. We can say “Jesus, look at her faith, she is diligently seeking you by receiving prayer.” When they try to check their injury, we can say “God look at her faith, she knows something happened when we prayed, look at the her faith to move out into her healing.” It creates a healing vacuum when both the prayer and prayee are moving in faith, heaven can then collide with earth. Remember Jesus’ word “Daughter your faith has made you well.” We have been making it a point to honor the fact that people even drive over to get prayer. Once you speak out faith, the angels come and stir up the faith.
EXERCISE CHALLENGE: Think of building your faith, like building your muscle. You must eat right, the word of God, “attend to my words, incline thine ear to them,…they are life unto those that find them and health to all flesh.” (Proverbs 4:20) Find Healing scriptures and write them on index cards and memorize anywhere from 3-10. Just having them in your memory and in your heart will build up your faith on the word and healing. Since you will already have a measure of faith with them, when you release them, it will activate the faith in the prayee and become a sweet wave of Glory for the Healing to ride on. We are Jesus’s hands, feet and mouth, go forth.
ACTIVATION: Dear Heavenly Father, we know You want your children healed and whole. Show me how I can be your hands, feet and heart. I want to advance your Kingdom here on earth. Give me more revelation and truth. Let your Kingdom come and your will be done. Teach me to be filled with faith and to release faith. Amen
