Ephesians 4:15 - But speaking the truth in love, we may grow up into Christ
in all things, Who is Himself the Head.

Part 1 - Growth Depends on Your Words

Our individual growth in the things pertaining to the spiritual life
demands that we speak the truth. There is only one source of truth, and
that is the Word of God (John 17:17). Our confession of the truth is
directly related to the results we get. Our willingness to agree with the
truth and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord resulted in our salvation, and
so it is with everything else in God. By the confession of our mouth, the
miracle of salvation worked in our lives; and by the confession of our
mouth, all the rest of God's miracles will be worked (Romans 10:10;
Proverbs 18:21; Matthew 12:37).

Words are important to God -He used them to create the Heavens and the
Earth, and everything in them (Psalm 33:6, 9; Hebrews 11:3). Now if we are
going to have the things God has purposed for us to have, then we must
believe what He has said (John 1:12, 3:16; Mark 5:36, 9:23, 11:22-24; Luke
8:50). Whatever we believe is ultimately what we are going to speak. Too
often, God's people speak out of fear and distrust, instead of love and
confidence. The things we see and hear around us have such an impact that
we too easily forget what God said. God placed a condition on what He would
do for us by requiring us to believe. If we believe God loves us, then we
know He is going to take excellent care of us. God has promised, and all we
must do is count Him faithful. In the midst of the crisis and the
circumstances, we can rise above it all and speak what God has spoken -even
if all the things around us oppose the good report. If we agree with Him
and confess what His Word has declared, then our faith will flow out with
divine authority through the acknowledgement of every good thing that is in
us (Philemon 1:6). If we hold fast the confession of our faith, we will
have God's divine provision because He is faithful to His Word, and He
loves us so much (Hebrews 10:23, 4:14; Philippians 4:19; Romans 8:32).

Let us firmly hold the profession of our faith without wavering, for He Who
promised is faithful!
