It is written: The centurion answered, "Lord, I'm not worthy to have You come under my roof. But just say The Word, and my servant will be healed." ~ Matthew 8:8
Jesus is our perfect example of how a fully human being walking in perfect alignment with God can live out life on earth. Think on this. Say it out loud a couple hundred times so that it gets down inside of you. He wasn't exempt from demonic attempts. He wasn't in His glorified body that wouldn't experience pain or bleeding; He needed water, food, sleep and everything we need. He was all human and that's why He had authority on earth and why we can hope for amazing manifestations in this life. He modeled what we should expect as Children of Yahweh.
Jesus had quick manifestations when He spoke a decree. The centurion's servant was healed at the moment Jesus spoke. The fig tree was dead within 24 hours. There are tons of other examples, too. We want quick manifestations. It's possible for us. Now if you're thinking, "Yeah, right, it takes forever when I say something," you're the problem. And you're having what you say - it's gonna take a long time because that's what you believe and that's what you said.
The reason we study The Word and say it aloud is so that faith comes. When you have faith and you speak a decree it's a prayer of faith full of God's Creative Power for manifestation and things happen immediately. That was how Jesus lived. He was full of faith, so when He said something, there was no possibility in His spirit that it wasn't already so. When He spoke, it was going to come from the unseen realm into the natural because that's how God set up the universe. Jesus knew (knows) The Father intimately and had (has) no doubt that what He saw and heard from God was done.
It is written: The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God's Law, nor can it do so. ~ Romans 8:7
It is written: Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. ~ Romans 12:2
We all know this with our heads so why aren't we living exactly as Jesus did? It's because our sinful nature fights against God. Paul told us the mind, which is our soul, is under the curse until we walk away from the likeness of this natural world, and turn to God. Well, God is a spirit, so renewing our minds and turning to Him means we agree to live from spirit and not from soul. This is not easy. And anyone who says it is, you know they're lying like the devil himself, because believers are in just as much mess in life as the rest of the world.
It takes work to come from under the curse. But it begins by knowing The Truth. When The Truth is known, it must then be understood. Then it must be spoken. If you had faith you'd say, "I'm redeemed from the curse of the law and The Blessing of The Lord that makes rich and adds no to toil to it is active in my life." However, if you don't have faith, you're saying, "Why can't I get a break in life?" Fix your faith.
You fix your faith by reading God's Word, communing with Him as you do and then speaking it aloud to yourself releasing it into the atmosphere. My faith has grown exponentially over the past four months. I unfollowed everyone on my personal FB page so I didn't see their posts, stopped chit-chatting with others as much as I used to, discontinued sharing my faith goals with anyone who expressed doubt in my possibilities. The last one was huge. I lost two of my best friends in March because they released doubt and told me to give up on something that was already a giant faith battle without their death words that agreed with the demonic being spoken. See video When Friends Doubt Your Prophetic Promises.
You're going to have to renew your mind to mature your spirit and learn to live from it instead of from your flesh and that requires some seeming sacrifices. It's hard to cut off nonsense and fun and games and only listen to sermons and songs and words that build faith. It's tough to give up friends after years and years of companionship. BUT I want the benefits of living a faith life, and if some people or things got to go so be it. Matter of fact, them telling me to quit and me separating from them was fuel. You have to decide if you want everything God promised or just what you get with the least amount of work. I want it all. 😎
The Word of God is a seed. Go back and start reading from Part 1 if you need a refresher. So there's time between it being planted and the manifested harvest. The time is determined by your faith and is affected if someone else's will is involved. If you start speaking a Promise that you want but don't completely believe, yet, you're going to have to keep saying it aloud to yourself and let your spirit grow. Then one day, you'll speak it without thinking first and have manifestation. That means faith came to you for that Promise of God.
If you speak a Promise every once in a while, but don't have manifestation, your spirit knows you don't believe it and everything in the spiritual realm can see you don't have sufficient faith, yet. Don't stop saying it, though. Faith comes by hearing and you won't hear it if you don't say it to yourself often. Remember, faith without works is dead, so that means you must follow up your faith with corresponding action. For example, I'm speaking $100,000 a month profit after expenses, and I have a big check on the wall right in front of me that I see every time I lift my head from the keyboard written out for $100,000 and in the memo line it reads: Monthly Profit. Your corresponding action needs to match what you're using faith to receive. Ask Holy Spirit through tongues and He'll download the best faith action for your situation. Witness.
How do you say and say and say? What I do is when I'm washing dishes, doing laundry, running, showering, etc. I make decrees. I'm on planes weekly and I make decrees during that time. I say them quietly under my breath if someone's next to me or I write them in my journal over and over and over. Yes, same sentence. If you were to look in one of journals you'd see, "My God supplies all of my needs according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus. All of my bills are paid in full on time every month. Jesus said I have what I say and it is so," on several pages on several different days. For things that I have pictures of, like this check on the wall here, sometimes I sit and look at it (meditate on it, not just stare) and say the decree for a few minutes. By saying and saying and concentrating on what I want to manifest, Holy Spirit builds faith structures in my spirit (Job 22:28).
What about when you need or want something by a certain time? The Blessing of The Lord is the perfect decree for this. Part of being blessed is having what you need and want when you need and want it. Again faith is God's currency. If you can believe it, it will be yours eventually. There's also getting in The Glory. The Glory of God brings immediate manifestations. I don't have a formula for getting in The Glory. The times I've been there came from seasons of praying in tongues for hours a day or worshiping for several hours a day. Oh, and when I prayed the fourth watch 3 a.m. to 6 a.m. for 50 days straight.
SN: Tongues is so the business. If you're not praying in tongues daily, I don't believe you'll ever achieve big parts of your destiny. People love to quote Romans 8:28 about everything working for our great, but technically that's not a stand-alone verse. It's attached to 8:26 and 27 and in whole tells us the things Holy Spirit prays THROUGH us (tongues) work out for our great.
Last but not least, watch your mouth. You create your life with YOUR WORDS. I shouldn't have to say anything else about that, but believers are just as bad mouthed as everyone else. Jesus said we give an account for every idle word so what that means is NO WORD IS IDLE. They're all recorded and all either blessing or cursing us.
There is a lot of information here and on my other sites for spiritual growth because it's where I invest my time. If anything blesses you, please consider sowing into this work. There are also books and downloadable teachings available starting at $1.
It is written: And the Lord said, "If you had faith like a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it would obey you." ~ Luke 17:6
SAY IT: I am a child of The Most High God, made in His image and likeness and able to speak and create. I use my words and call what is not as though it were, building my destiny from the spiritual realm for manifestation in the natural. I hear The Word of God and build faith to use The Keys to The Kingdom to exercise authority and dominion over my life and in the realms assigned to me in the earth. Jesus said I have what I say and it is so. Amen.
