The Start Button

Start Button

Press the start button to everything you’re believing for, and walk in manifested victory! Are you snared by a particularly persistent problem? You’ve done everything you know to do. You’ve focused on it, prayed about it, and scratched your head over it, but you still can’t figure out what’s behind it. You release a torrent of unbelieving, ungodly confessions that actually perpetuate the lousy condition you’re so desperate to change. But, as long as we keep calling things like they are, those things are never going to change.

Think of your words like pushing a start button. A start button sets in motion the process by which we receive the desired end result. The same is true in the spiritual realm when we speak words. We have a host of promises from God’s Word we can expect to see come to pass in our lives. But first we have to set our faith in motion by speaking and calling things the way we want them to be, not how they are.

Here are four ways your words push the start button and set things in motion in your life:

1. Words Have Creative Power

“The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit” Proverbs 18:21 (NIV

Like it or not, this is a word-created, word-controlled universe. God established it that way from the very beginning. He made everything by calling “things which be not as though they were” (Romans 4:17, KJV). He set this whole system in motion by speaking into the darkness and saying, “Light be!” and light was (Genesis 1:3).

The whole Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, makes it clear that we live under a word-activated system. It’s always been that way, and it always will be. We can’t change that fact. However, we can choose the words under which we live. We can change our environment by what we say.

Jesus explained it this way in Matthew 12:34-37: …whatever is in your heart determines what you say. A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. And I tell you this, you must give an account on judgment day for every idle word you speak. The words you say will either acquit you or condemn you.

We live in a word-created, word-upheld universe. Amen. It’s pretty awesome, isn’t it? Words dominate our lives. It’s set. It cannot be changed, but we can change the words under which we live.

2. Words Determine What You’ll Have

“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heat, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23

God has delegated authority here on earth to you. Your words have authority to create every time you speak, not just when you pray. If you speak positive results in prayer and negative results the rest of the time, your negative words will prevail. The key to receiving the desires of your heart is to make the words of your mouth agree with what you want!

Make everything you say agree with what God says. Be consistent in saying only faith words. Speak whatever you desire to come to pass in the Name of Jesus. Take authority over the money you need, and command it to come to you. If you need healing, speak to your body. Command it to be healed in the Name of Jesus. Command it to function properly. Speak the result you want. Whatever you say will come to pass.

Now, you can’t change your talk by simply going to church one time a week. There is only one way you can achieve this and do so for the long term—by meditating on the Word of God day and night.

3. Words are Satans Way of Stealing from You

“But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord.” James 1:6-7 (ESV).

We see in this verse two simple choices: You can waver, or you can receive. You cannot waver and receive at the same time. Knowing this, Satan has one tactic in mind—to get you to doubt. But, remember this—if Satan had any authority of his own, he would not have to depend on deception. Satan has to trick you into saying what he wants to come to pass. With your words, you either resist or comply with Satan’s demands. With your words, you either resist or comply with God’s Word. You are in command. The decision is yours. Nobody else makes it for you.

The reason staying in the Word of God continually is so important is because Satan is just waiting to curse you. He wants to steal, kill and destroy all the promises of God before they ever reach you. But he can’t do it without your cooperation. You are the only one who can give him access to your promises—and you do this through your words.

So, the first step in defeating Satan’s attack against you is to make the decision that you are not going to allow him to change your confession of faith. A fearless confession comes from a Word-ruled mind. It’s a mind that knows the Word of God is true and never gives place to the devil (Ephesians 4:27). That’s what it means to bring into captivity every thought.

4. Faith-Filled Words Change Your Circumstance

A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasure of an evil heart.” Matthew 12:35

Many people hear the Word of faith and decide that they will change their circumstances by speaking faith-filled words according to Mark 11:23. What many don’t realize is that you can’t fill your words with faith out of your own determination. Words become faith words by hearing the Word of God. Then, by continually hearing and hearing and hearing the Word—faith comes, and faith remains.

If the world is distracting you from the Father, then most likely your “faith confessions” will be empty words. You are not going to experience resurrection power unless you set your affection on Him.

Whatever is in your heart in abundance is going to come out of your mouth. Matthew 12:35 says, “A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart.”

It’s time to stop telling it like it is and start telling it like the Word of God says it should be. When you continually speak the Word of God in the face of adversity, you will change your circumstances! Refuse to let the devil or the world influence your words. Stand firm in your decision to only speak what you want to see come to pass in your life.

Push the start button on everything you’re believing for, and watch as faith sets things in motion for your benefit!
