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.
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?
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…
