Once again, today’s devotion centers on the importance of believing. Yesterday we spoke about praying and believing. Today we focus on believing and speaking. We need to believe what we say. For that to happen, we must be grounded in the power of God. Our words are important for they represent our faith. In other words, so one thinketh, so one is. If you think you are defeated, then your words will echo those thoughts. On the other hand, if you think that you can be victorious, then when you speak, your words will affirm that which you believe. The scripture lesson for this devotion is II Corinthians 4:13.

“But we continue to preach because we have the same kind of faith the psalmist had when he said, ‘I believed in God, so I spoke.’”

In this deep and moving passage of scripture, Paul speaks of that which he believes. Throughout the chapter, he writes that we are pressed on every side by our troubles; we are crushed and perplexed but not driven down to despair. He does not speak defeat for he clearly knows how troubles come on every side. He also knows that God, through His Son Jesus Christ, has given power to him. Paul says that is why we never give up. He writes that we cannot look at the troubles we see now; we fix our eyes on the things we cannot see. His faith is fortified and he has the ability to speak of that which he believed. Prayerfully, you are able to speak boldly about the belief you have in God, and you are not swayed by life’s trials and troubles. I trust that you are confident because your hope is in Christ Jesus.
