Morning by Morning, September 6 - "The Word of Faith"
Good morning, Lord Jesus. Be welcome here in my heart and every moment of my day. ...
"Moses writes concerning the righteousness that comes from the law, that 'the person who does these things will live by them.' But the righteousness that comes from faith says, 'Do not say in your heart, 'Who will ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down)' or 'Who will descend into the abyss? (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).' But what does it say? 'The word is near you, on your lips and in your heart' (this, the word of faith that we proclaim); because if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confess with the mouth and so is saved.' The Scripture says, 'No one who believes in Him will be put to shame'" (Romans 10:5-11).
The word is near me, because You are the Word -- the Living Word of God made flesh and living in me (John 1:14). You are "Christ in (me), the hope of glory" because You are the Word of God in me (Colossians 1:27).
So let Your name be on my lips and Your nature be in my heart. This is "the word of faith that we proclaim" -- the faith to believe that the Word of God lives in us (Romans 10:8). And this is the salvation that we have -- not by the righteous things we've done but by our faith in the Righteous One who died for us and now lives in us (Romans 8:11). So let the words of my mouth be words of faith, as an expression of the One who lives in my heart today. "For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks" (Matthew 12:34).
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
I pray authority of the name of Jesus will be on your lips and the presence of the nature of Jesus will be in your heart this day, as you live and speak the word of faith everywhere you go, in Jesus' name. Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!
