|WHEN I DON’T FEEL LIKE IT

I AM REVEALED

Mark 11:23, “He shall have whatsoever he saith.”
What I say is what I get. What I confess is what I possess. My confession of the Word precedes my possession of the
promises of God’s Word. Matthew 4:4, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth from the
mouth of God.” Realizing I get what I say, I let the Word of God prevail and have free course. I endeavor to speak the
Word only (Matthew 8:8).
When I need healing, I speak aloud as often as possible. “By His stripes I am healed” I Peter 2:24. I say it when I feel
like saying it. I say it especially when I don’t feel like saying it. When sharp pain strikes my body. I say it. When I
awaken in the middle of the night with symptoms of some ailment, I say it. I say it when I arise in the morning, and I say it
when I retire at night. I say it with all the confidence I can muster. I say it when I have no confidence at all. I say it. I
say it. I say it. Isaiah 53:5, “With His stripes I am healed.”
When I am weak, I break the silence by saying Psalm 27:1, “The Lord is the strength of my life,” and Philippians 4:13,
“I can do all things through Christ who strengtheneth me.” Yes, I say it when I feel weak and defeated. I say it when I
am on the mountain top of spiritual blessing: I say it especially when I am away down in the valley of melancholy and
When I am fearful, I speak with authority II Timothy 1:7, “God hath not given me the spirit of fear, but of power, of love,
and of a sound mind.” I loosen up and speak up, and my fears vanish. Feeling or no feeling, I know the Lord liveth and
abideth and my stand is upon that sure Rock.
When I am tempted to doubt God’s Word: I doubt that doubt; doubt is of the devil and God classifies me as a
believer. If I believe, I receive; if I doubt, I do without. I speak with bold assurance Roman 12:3, “God hath dealt to
every man the measure of faith.” Faith is something that I have, for God hath given to every man the measure of faith.
Faith is what I actually believe in the very depths of my heart.
When I lack money, I speak these seven words, “My God shall supply all my need” Philippians 4:19. I say it when I
have money in the bank and I say it when my bank account is flat. I say it when my senses register that I am prospering,
and I say it when it appears I am poverty-stricken. When I live by the Word, two grand promises assure me of these
results: Psalm 1:3, “Whatsoever he doeth shall prosper;” Joshua 1:8, “Thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and thou
shalt have good success.”
Morning, noon and night and somewhere in between, I speak God’s Word. This is the greatest self-discipline in
which I will ever be engaged: to speak God’s Word at all times, under all circumstances. I think God’s Word in silence,
then I speak it aloud as often as possible. I say it when the pressure from the enemy is upon me. And I say it when I am
basking in the ecstasies of the Spirit! I say it when I feel like saying it. Especially I say it when I don’t feel like saying it!
