Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; HE SHALL HAVE WHATSOEVER HE SAITH.
Let's examine what Jesus said in today's text: "...and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe (that is, believe in his heart) that those things which he saith shall come to pass..." Those things that you say are your words--your confessions--and those words give you power over demons, disease, and circumstances.
What is it Jesus says you shall have? What you believe for? No. Many people think, If I believe strongly enough, it will come to pass. But at the same time, they are "talking" unbelief, so what they are asking for cannot come to pass! Jesus did not say, "He shall have whatsoever he BELIEVETH;" He said, "...he shall have whatsoever he SAITH."
For you do receive what you say. If you're not satisfied with what you have in life, then check up on what you are saying--what you are confessing. All you have and all you are today is a result of what you believed and said yesterday!
Confession: I believe in my heart. I believe in my words.
