Faith is a powerful force. It’s a quality that lives in us and is expressed through the way we live and the words we speak. It’s something that needs to be nurtured and grown within us.
Speaking words of faith are one way to increase faith and put it to work. The Bible teaches us this principle in many places. One is found in 2 Corinthians 4:13 (NIV) “It is written, ‘I believed; therefore I have spoken.’ Since we have that same spirit of faith, we also believe and therefore speak …”
You can’t divorce faith in the heart from words in the mouth. They go together.
This week we’re looking at five faith declarations that will change your life. Believing and declaring them will set you free to experience the life God wants you to experience, and more importantly, to be the person God wants you to be.
Today’s declaration is: What has been in my life will not determine what will be!
God’s will for your life is to give you hope for your future. It’s to help you realize and understand that no situation from your past needs to be a hindrance to your present and future.
All too often we allow our past to define us. We allow our past to become a prophecy of our future. When we have experienced difficulties and disappointments in the past, we can easily begin to believe that what has been always will be. This belief undermines faith and confidence in God and His ability to help us change. It undermines the expectation of a better future.
Take a stand today. Open your mouth and declare with confidence, “What has been in my life will not determine what will be!”
