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: God is bigger than my problems!
Problems are part of life. All too often we magnify our problems by the way we think and talk about them. While we shouldn’t ignore problems or treat them as though they don’t exist, we should view them in the light of God’s greatness, power, and love.
No matter how big your problems are, God is bigger. I am reminded of young David when he visited the battlefield dominated by the giant, Goliath. Israel’s army was intimidated by the size and words of this big man. David had a different perspective. While the army of Israel saw a giant, David had his eye on God. The presence and promises of God dwarfed Goliath!
What about you? Are you seeing some problems in your life today? Do they seem gigantic? Begin declaring with your mouth what the Bible clearly teaches, “God is bigger than my problems!”
