I was having my morning devotion when I stumbled on this phrase “believe and therefore speak” in 2 Corinthians 4:13. Speaking nice and sweet things are so easy when the sailing is smooth but we tend to whine, moan and doubt what we actually believe when storm hits us. And so I meditated on the verse and came up with these:
I believe in God’s perfect love and so I speak that through all my imperfections, I am sure that He loves me just the same.
I believe in God’s everlasting faithfulness and so I speak that in life’s up’s and down’s, I know that He always got my back.
I believe in God’s amazing grace and so I speak that even in my weaknesses, I got His enabling grace to be the woman He wants me to be.
I believe in God’s perfect timing and so I speak that though the agony of waiting wears me out at times, I shall contend in faith.
I believe in God’s impeccable plan and so I speak that when my plan fails, I shall still continue planning but will be open to God’s innovations.
I believe that God has always His ways of teaching me and so I speak that in tensions and pressures, I shall choose to listen to what He’s telling me.
I believe that God always deserves the highest praise and so I speak that even if I don’t feel like praising, I will praise Him anyway.
I believe that God can do miracles and so I speak that even when current situations lures me to doubt, I shall continue to walk by faith and not by sight.
I believe that GOD has in store great things for me and so I speak that no matter how great challenges may come, I shall keep my eyes on Him.
I believe that GOD is taking me from glory to glory and so I speak that no matter how many victories I have already conquered, I know that the best is yet to come!
Declare what you believe and believe what you declare. Make no mistake; HIS promises shall surely come to pass.
“It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.” Since we have that same spirit of faith, we also believe and therefore speak…” 2 Cor 4:13, NIV
