COURAGEOUSLY DECLARE HIS WORD – Pastor Chris
…for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may BOLDLY SAY, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me (Hebrews 13:5-6).
Our underlined portion above— “boldly say”— is “tharrheo lego” (Greek) and it means to courageously declare. “Lego” means to say or speak; but it also means to boast. God said something, so that we could courageously declare or boastfully affirm the same thing. This is amazing!
That was exactly what Jesus did when He encountered Satan in Matthew 4. He said, “…It is written…” (Matthew 4:7). It shows us that the way to respond to life’s circumstances is with the Scriptures. For example, when you say, “Greater is He that’s in me than he that’s in the world,” you’re responding with the Word; you’re courageously affirming the Word.
That verse doesn’t exactly say, “Greater is He that is in me”; rather, it says, “Greater is he that is in you….” But in response, you personalize it; that’s when it becomes “Rhema.” Glory to God! God gave us the Scriptures so we could speak them forth. The Word of God created all things; therefore, everything in life responds to the spoken Word from your lips. The principle is: the Word in your heart and in your mouth; you release the power of God into action in your behalf through speaking. Hallelujah!
PRAYER / CONFESSION
I’m a winner all the time; I live over and above all limitations and circumstances. There’s no situation I can’t change, because my tongue is a tree of life with which I guarantee my health, success, safety, wellness and wholeness! Hallelujah!
