Rhapsody of Realities TeeVo Devotional 25th June – Your Mouth-Heart Connection

(“Believing” And “Talking” Must Go Together)

TO THE BIBLE: Romans 10:9-10
“…If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

Your mouth is your instrument given by God to chart your course through life; it’s not just for eating and drinking. Some people might contest this, but think of this: there’re people in hospitals who, as a result of sickness, are drip-fed through their veins. So even though it’s convenient to use the mouth for food, its greater function is for talking, using the power of words for creating your victorious life.

Salvation has already been made available in Christ Jesus. Titus 2:11 says, “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.” However, to catapult yourself into the realms of glory—where you enjoy the benefits of salvation—you must use your mouth correctly, for with the mouth confession catapults you into salvation.

This is the reason some people, even though they’ve been Christians for long, have never really enjoyed the benefits of Christianity. They haven’t acted on the Word. You’re to make confessions of the Word; that means speak the same things that God has said concerning you in His Word. Doing this takes you beyond receiving salvation to enjoying the benefits of salvation.

You ought to always make confessions about yourself on the basis of the Word of God that you’ve received and believed. Until you make those confessions, your believing won’t produce results. Your believing and confession must go together. 2 Corinthians 4:13 says, “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.”

Those whose confessions are at variance with what they believe will always experience lots of ups and downs in life with no consistent victories. This is because as the Word says, a fountain doesn’t produce sweet water and bitter water at the same time (James 3:11). Speak the Word only, and always, for a life of consistent victory and excellence.
