Speak the End Result
I’ve preached for years that believers are to speak directly to the situations that they want to change in their lives. And some people have asked me a very good question. They’ve asked, “Well, what do you say?”
The answer is simple. You speak the desired end result. Nothing more. “Peace, be still.” That’s all Jesus had to say to end a violent storm. “No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever.” That’s all He said to eliminate the fig tree (Mark 11:13-14, 20-21).
We need to imitate His example and quit talking so much. If that had been us talking to the fig tree, we wouldn’t have just said, “No man eat fruit of thee….” We’d have said, “Fig tree, in the Name of Jesus, I curse you. I send you to hell in the Name of Jesus. Fig tree, you die. I’m telling you, devil, come out of that fig tree….” And on and on we’d go.
Jesus didn’t say we are heard because of much talk. We are heard because of faith in the Name of Jesus.
There’s no telling what we would have said to that fig tree before we got through.
But not Jesus. He just spoke the end result and never looked back.
What enabled Him to operate with such simple certainty? He was confident in the authority His words carried. He knew without question that the power of Almighty God backed Him and caused His every word to come to pass.
When you operate in faith, you can be just as confident. God is backing your faith just as surely as He backed Jesus’ faith. So speak to your situation with authority. Speak confidently. And speak the end result.
Speak the Word
“As I speak in faith, I do not doubt in my heart. I believe those things which I say shall come to pass. I have what I say.” (Mark 11:23)
