The Heart – Mouth Connection

By Dr. Creflo A. Dollar

This week’s topic: The Power Of The Tongue

Many Christians wonder how they can operate in the same kind of “say and see” power that God does. There is nothing magical about the process. The Bible is not a book of spells. It is simply a matter of meditating on the Word of God until it becomes so rooted in your heart that it becomes more real to you than your present circumstances. When a person reaches this point, his or her faith is ready to be activated by words.

Establishing your heart in the Word of God is essential if you want to see the physical manifestation of God’s promises. Because Scripture is infallible, whatever God says must come to pass. God’s Word is full of faith. The way a believer begins to establish his or her faith is to hear the Word of God preached (Romans 10:17) in addition to reading, studying, meditating on and speaking it. If you make this your lifestyle, you will be walking by faith and experience the promises of God come to pass in your life.

Your heart is your epicenter of faith in God’s Word. Many people mistakenly make confessions when their heart is not grounded on the Word of God. They are actually only mentally assenting to the words they speak. They don’t really believe the words they are saying; they are only hoping that what they say will come to pass. Consequently, they get frustrated when they don’t see the manifestation of what they are speaking.

Romans 10:10 says, “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” You must believe in the integrity of the Word before you speak it. Otherwise, your confessions are in vain. Second Corinthians 4:13 says, “We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak.” Joshua 1:8 stresses the importance of meditating on the Word day and night. In doing so, we make our way prosperous.

Jesus is our ultimate example of operating the principle of faith. He knew that whatever He spoke would come to pass. Why? Because He had meditated on the Word to such a point that it regulated His life (Psalm 119:97-104). When He cursed the fig tree in Mark 11:12-24, the results came immediately. What He had spoken had no choice but to come to pass because they overflowed with the faith of God. The same results can be yours when you don’t doubt in your heart (Matthew 21:21). Jesus said that whosoever shall say, or speak, to something in faith will see it changed.

Settle the Issue

Walking by faith, or walking by the Word of God, must become a settled issue in your life before you can experience God’s abundance. For you to experience divine health and healing, financial prosperity, deliverance and the numerous other benefits of God’s covenant, it will depend on whether you choose to accept the world’s opinions and reports over the integrity of God’s Word. I don’t know about you, but I’m not going to put my trust in a system that is falling apart and is unreliable. If you put the principles of the Word to work while pursuing a life of love and holiness, you can prove God for yourself. Give His Word a chance and watch Him come through for you every single time.
