One of the recent teachings of Andrew Wommack has been on the power of faith filled words, I’ll put a link below. This is something I’d taken on especially when recently praying for my new job and through it had one of my Duh moments!
It’s quite simply this. I’d thought that when saying these words I’d have to add real depth of feeling, as if forcing them to be effective by my self-will and how much energy I put into them. As if my effort would make them be powerful. WRONG! The words themselves have their own power and faith is released in words. Sometimes if I’m struggling with something, I don’t have the energy, and I just say, Help me. Or when rebuking some stupid thought or forgiving someone, or praying for something important. I just say the words, gently, the saying of them has the power, it’s not on my effort in saying them. It works. Its the power of the Holy spirit, not me! Its faith not works. Am I making sense?
