Word of Faith
Part 7 of the Teacher/Trainer Outline
Having the mind of Christ, we become persuaded that a thought or idea we have is God’s thought or idea. We go from knowing this is so to desiring it will become "fleshed out," to willing it, and finally saying it is a done thing, whether we see it or not.
The process goes from thought, to word, to deed. Thoughts are seed-beds; acts are the products. At the core is the decisive spoken word.
So a person in action is really his word in action.
Spirit attitude always precedes spirit action. Sometimes our attitude is a positive one. More often we have to confront our negative attitude toward people and circumstances. We then are pressed to a moment of decision as to what we will do about this negative.
Speaking the word of faith is both simple and difficult. The difficulty stems from the continuing opposition of the enemy as we press through adverse circumstances. The simplicity lies in the fact that all we have to do is believe (John 6:29). The power behind our decisive word lies in the fact that it is Christ as us, speaking the word of faith. We come to know that God is not looking for ability, but availability.
