Have you ever wondered why your faith doesn’t seem to work? Many Christians really believe in the word of God, but receive less because they do not know how faith works. As such, faith is not difficult to produce results if you know how it works. So one important way to put your faith to work is to speak up more. This article explains why speaking more as it is believed blesses in the end.

And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written: “I believed and therefore I spoke”, we also believe and therefore speak – 2 Corinthians 4:13 (NKJV).

For truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Remove yourself and cast yourself into the sea,” and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will be done, whatever he says will be done to him. – Mark 11:23 (NIV).

the great challenge

It is very frustrating to believe God’s word and not receive the desired result. So what is the problem? One area to consider is your consistency in saying what you believe; many Christians are failing on this point. Therefore, it is not enough to believe in the word of God in the heart (the enemy also believes it and trembles); you are saying what you think is most important. So, you will only have what you say and not what you don’t say!

You may have prayed the word of God (this is important), but have you spoken it? Surely when you give voice to what you believe you activate it and put it to work. Therefore, God is waiting for you to express what you believe to give you the answer you want.

Why talk

1. Life and death are in the power of the tongue

The tongue has the power to give life or death depending on what you say, and those who know how to use it eat its fruits. This means that the unspoken words are powerless and lifeless. So just believing the word of God in your heart will not activate its potentials.

2. Channel of blessings

Speaking the word you believe is a channel through which God releases the blessings in the word. So until you say it, you won’t have it. Plus, that means that until you say it, it’s still a dream, an unfulfilled wish.

3. God wants it from you

God really wants you to open your mouth wide so He can fill it with the words that will bless your life. Also, know that the words from his mouth control his destiny; as such to close your mouth is to prevent your destiny from being fulfilled. Therefore, if the Lord sees it important to speak what you believe, then you should pay attention to it.

4. Channel for Victory

God subdues your enemies with the words of your mouth. Therefore, your victory over your enemies is on your tongue. Therefore, you must speak the word of God against your enemy for Him to effect your victory over the devil.

5. A test of your faith

If you believe, you will say so. This shows that you really have faith in God and his word, and that you believe that God will do what he said. Therefore, what you cannot say you do not believe.

6. The angels await your word

The angels of God fulfill the word of the Lord when they hear you say it. As such, you can only put your angels to work speaking the word of God that you believe in your heart. So don’t make your angel redundant, give him something to do by speaking the word of the Lord.

7. It is the wisdom of God for a change

The dry bones in Ezekiel 37:1-14 came to life when Ezekiel prophesied as instructed by the Almighty. As he prophesied, the bones obeyed his words until they became a very large army. The situation around you will not change for the better until you constantly speak God’s word about it.

biblical examples


During the fight between David and Goliath (1 Samuel 17), David first killed him with the word of his mouth before seeing him dead. First, Goliath cursed David with his words in the name of his gods, then David countered his words with his own words. He told Goliath that the Lord would hand him over, and he would beat him up and cut off his head. And that was exactly what God did for him.

Therefore, you must not only declare the word of God over your life, you must also counteract the negative words against you with the word of God; never allow the words of the enemy to hover over your life and your destiny.


When Jesus went to raise the daughter of Jarius from the dead, He met people who were crying and told them that the girl was sleeping and not dead, and they mocked Him. However, He went in and just took her by the hand and she got up (Matthew 9:18-19, 23-25). A sleeping person only needs one touch to get up. Then, the words of Christ put her to sleep and she got up from her when Christ took her by the hand.


It is not enough to believe the word of God in your heart, you must keep speaking until you see it fulfilled. Furthermore, the Lord has given you a mouth and wisdom that your adversaries cannot contradict or resist. So, he uses the wisdom that God has given you and receive the answer to your desired prayers, and your enemies will not defeat you with their words anymore.
