THE WORD ON YOUR LIPS
For with the heart man believeth unto
righteousness; and with the mouth
confession is made unto salvation

It’s not enough to know God’s Word as it’s
contained in the written pages of the Bible; you
have to release power through speaking! That’s how
it works! With the Word on your lips, you’ll live over
and above all limitations and circumstances.
Voicing your faith is a fundamental spiritual
principle, without which even the gift and blessing
of salvation can’t be received or activated. Notice
the opening verse again: “For with the heart man
believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth
confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:10).
The salvation package is delivered upon satisfying
these two conditions: Believing and confessing the
Lordship of Jesus. To believe isn’t enough; there
must be the corresponding verbal communication or
affirmation of your faith.
When you speak the Word, what you’re doing is
releasing the power of God into action on your behalf.
For example, God instructed Joshua, “This book of
the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou
shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest
observe to do according to all that is written therein:
for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and
then thou shalt have good success” (Joshua 1:8).
The Hebrew rendering of the word “meditate” is
“hagah,” which means to ponder, imagine, murmur,
mutter, speak, study, talk, utter, or roar. It’s not just
talking about you thinking the Word only, it means
you ought to voice out the Word.
Notice that the instruction to Joshua doesn’t make
any mention of us speaking to anyone. So, it makes no
difference whether or not anyone is listening to you,
you just keep talking the Word. When matters arise,
use the Word. Speak the Word and change things. The
Word of God in your mouth is God talking.
Dear Father, thank you for faith is stirred in my spirit
to change my world and transform circumstances
for your glory. I believe in the unsearchable riches
of Christ and all He’s done for me, and therefore
affirm that I walk in righteousness, victory, health,
peace, progress and prosperity all my days, in Jesus’
Mark 11:23; Proverbs 15:23; Romans 10:6-9
