The Science Behind Confessing God’s Word

scientific research

I like science. I am a fan of it. I like the research, testing, re-testing, and discovery. I like science ever since I heard this definition of it:

“Science is the discovery of truth.”

Since God is truth, it only stands to reason that science is the study of God and His works. You can’t study science and not find God, nor can you study God and not discover His works through science (and revelation).

That being said I wanted to stay on the subject of confessing God’s Word over your life. It’s essential that we keep our thinking and talking in line with God’s thinking and talking. When the Bible uses the word “confession” it’s often the Greek word “homologeo.” Some of the meanings of “Homologeo” are:

  • “to say the same thing as another, i.e. to agree with, assent.”
  • “to declare openly, speak out freely.”

The word is actually derived from two Greek words:

  • Homou: same
  • Logos: word, speech, divine utterance, analogy.

Or basically, saying the same thing or having the same word.

“This is great Mike, but what does this have to do with science?”

I’m glad you asked.

It’s a scientific fact that all matter is composed of energy. Centuries before we “discovered” it the Bible said,

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12 KJV)

That word “powerful” is the Greek word “energes” which means “active or effectual.” So the same energy (or energes) that created the world, and sustains it you have at your disposal.

Wow!

So when you get in line with God’s Word and confess that you’re healed…

…or confess that you’re whole…

…or confess that you’re redeemed…

…the same power that went into work creating the world goes into work on your behalf!!

But what if nothing happens…

God is always watching over His Word and the place where His Word is confessed.

He told Jeremiah:

“Then said the Lord to me, You have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it.” (Jeremiah 1:12 AMP)

“Yeah Mike I get you. I did that…and nothing happened. My circumstances are still the same.”

I get that.

But remember two things.

First, there is this thing called perseverance: It’s through faith and patience we inherit the promises of God.

Second, God’s word is like a hammer. He told Jeremiah:

“‘Does not my word burn like fire?’ says the LORD. ‘Is it not like a mighty hammer that smashes a rock to pieces?'”

When breaking a rock you may have to hit it a hundred times before you see the results you want. Just after you hit it the 99th time you will be tempted to give up. But when you hit it the 100th time the rock explodes into pieces!! What blow was the one that destroyed it?

The 100th?

The 75th?

The 1st?

No.

It was no single one. It was the accumulation of all the blows that did it!! So keep confessing even if it seems like nothing is happening!

What promises are you believing God for? Your thoughts…

  1. Great Post Mike, God’s word has power when spoken by an anointed believer who has heart knowledge of trusting Jesus. We can’t just rattle off scriptures that we found and expect it to be effective. Those words must first pierce our heart and then go forth to do their work. Faith expects an answer and hope hopes for one.

  2. Another great lesson and teaching, Mike. I like it, that verse from Hebrews has a whole new life! Thanks, and a nice Labor Day to you and yours.

  3. Great post Mike, the rock analogy reminds me of something the Lord spoke to me a while back. I was growing faint on His promise and He asked, “what if you gave up today but your breakthrough is (lined up for) tomorrow?” The word got me up on my feet again :) Thanks for this reminder today!

  4. Great things happen when we speak God’s Word and truths! Thanks for the reminder.

  5. I found out quickly that you can’t just confess God’s word when you have no connection to Him or have no attention on following Him. The reason a lot of people give up after two weeks is because confessing His Word is not a magical formula for getting what you want. We must be align with His will. I John 15:14-15 says, ‘This is the confidence which we have [l]before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.’

  6. I think this is one of the reasons why Scripture memorization and recitation is so vital for every Christian. When we say God’s Word we help ourselves understand it better and believe it stronger.

  7. Great post Mike! God’s word is powerful to change and impact and heal. It’s why we are told to hide it in our heart. Thanks for this!
