13 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
Faith is not something that is alien to the believer. If a child is born in Yoruba land among Yoruba people, what is the first language he is going to naturally start speaking? Yoruba of course! Do the parents begin to worry about whether the child will learn Yoruba? It doesn’t even occur to them; they don’t even know when the child picks it up. One day he says one word in Yoruba and the next day he says another word in Yoruba. If they worry about any- thing, it is if the child will learn any language other than the language of his people. As long as he grows up among Yoruba speaking people, he will speak Yoruba very fluently.
Conversely, if a Yoruba child, born to a Yoruba couple grows up among Ikwerre speaking people, although he is a full blooded Yoruba child, he will pick up Ikwerre and speak the language fluently. Similarly, the Devil has a language – his language is that of lies. Anyone who grows up without Christ is better positioned to spew out lies and untruths from his or her mouth. Lies will become his or her natural language. Do you now see that both in the natural and in the spiritual everyone has a language? What then is the language of the believer expected to be?
The day you got born again, faith became your language. The Bible says you received the measure of faith. The Scripture above says the “spirit of faith” believes and speaks. If you speak or do anything other than faith, then you are in alien territory. Stay among people of like precious faith. Watch your associations, they will determine your language and that will determine your experience in life.
Confession: Father, I thank You because I have received my language – the language of faith from You. I can speak like You speak and receive the same kind of results that You have. I understand that this language is important to my experience of victory, therefore I will watch my associations because they will determine my language and my language will determine what I experience in my life.
