23 "For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, `Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in their heart, but believes that those things they say will come to pass, they will have whatever they say.
Jesus said that you will have whatever you say -- dependent on believing and not doubting. Think of that. What you say determines what you get in life.
Faith Must Speak
20 So Jesus said to them, "for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, `Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.
6 So the Lord said, "If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, `Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,' and it would obey you.
Faith must be released through words. All we receive from God must be received by faith (Romans 5:2; Galatians 3:14; Hebrews 6:12; Matthew 9:29). So, you will receive God's blessing in line with the words you speak.
Hold Fast Your Confession
HEBREWS 3:1; 4:14
1 Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus,
14 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.
23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.
Your confession is what you say. You should persistently continue speaking in faith, agreeing with what God has said, regardless of circumstances. If it never seemed like it was not working, there would be no need to hold fast, or hang on, to a confession of faith.
