HOMOLOGIA 2

” We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;” 2 Corinthians 4:13 (KJV)
 
To confess God’s word is not a mere mimicking act. As it’s clearly stated in the opening verse, we speak because we believe. We don’t speak because we are parroting words that sound good.
As I explained yesterday,  Homologia is not just speaking. It begins with you coming to an agreement of what has been said and then you speak with unflinching conviction.
The faith life is lived at the level of your confession and action.
From the beginning of your salvation, to your health and to the enjoyment of your inheritance in Christ, you must confess the Word of God.
Speaking God’s word is God’s working. Remember I mentioned that God does nothing without His Word. He works His Word by speaking.
From the scriptures we see that our God is a SPEAKING GOD. All through Genesis 1, we see God speaking forth His creation.
As God speaks you must also speak.
Some folks think it is better to meditate than to speak. What they really don’t know is, meditation in Christ begins with thinking the Word of God and consummates with roaring out the Word.
God outlined His formula for Joshua’s success in Joshua 1:5-9.
However, in Joshua 1:8 He highlighted the foundational element to prosper and have good success.
 
” This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success” Joshua 1:8 (NKJV).
 
This is how some people read this verse:
The Book of the Law shall not depart from your MOUTH (be silent about the word). But, meditate (THINK) in it day and night.
That is a basic misunderstanding of the words which were chosen.
The expression “shall not depart from your mouth”, doesn’t mean be quiet about the Word or don’t speak the Word.
The word DEPART is from the Hebrew word, mûsh  which basically means to cease, to go back, to remove or take away.
Now when we look at the meaning of MEDITATE you will understand clearly.
But first let’s read the verse (Joshua 1:8) from The VOICE translation:
 
” Let the words from the book of the law be always on your lips. Meditate on them day and night so that you may be careful to live by all that is written in it. If you do, as you make your way through this world, you will prosper and always find success.”
 
Do you see it?
Do not let the word depart from your lips simply means, LET THE WORD ALWAYS BE ON YOUR LIPS.
Then the Lord gives Joshua the rich principle he must engage to get the Word to work effectively:
 
MEDITATE
 
The Hebrew word for “MEDITATE” is “hāgāh” the , which means to meditate, moan, growl, utter, speak.
 (See Vines Expository Dictionary).
It means to study, ponder, to imagine, mourn, mutter, roar, speak, talk, or utter.
It was an ancient practice of sighing and making low sounds or muttering while musing. Then as their thoughts settle in, they make declaration of those thoughts.
Hāgāh expresses the growl and roaring of a lion.
When you receive the Word of God as you read the scriptures, you pause to hāgāh!!!
Heyaa
You ponder upon the words, imagine and begin to growl like a hungry lion. You mutter the words to yourself, and then you begin to imagine the word taking form in your life. Focus your mind, your heart and your tongue on the Word.
The just shall live by faith, and our faith life is a matter of the word in your heart and mouth.
 
” But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim)” Romans 10:8 (ESV)
 
As you receive the Word in your heart, you confess it.
As it is written, “I believed and therefore spoke, we also believe and therefore speak” (2 Cor. 4:13).
So for example you read the:
Proverbs 11:25 —
” The generous man [is a source of blessing and] shall be prosperous and enriched, And he who waters will himself be watered [reaping the generosity he has sown].” (Amplified).
 
You don’t quickly “parrot” the word.
You set your mind and heart on the Word. You ponder over it, you think through to understand the reality of the word. You cause the eyes of your spirit to see what the Word is saying, and then you imagine the word by creating mental pictures.
You start muttering the word to yourself, like a lion growling. You will realise your heart will begin to burn with the light of the word.
Whiles you do this, it begins to settle deeply in your heart.
You don’t allow the WORD to leave your lips. You begin to speak it to yourself, as your spirit draws out the life of the Word you have received.
Now you have reached the peak of meditation.
Now it’s time to hāgāh or to practice homologia.
You avow with dogged conviction.
 
YOU SPEAK THE SCRIPTURES TO YOURSELF LOUD.
 
At this time, they are more than alphabets put together.
The sentences are no longer mere grammar. They are life to you. They have become part of the governing force of your spirit.
You declare:
The LORD has said:
 
“The generous man [is a source of blessing and] shall be prosperous and enriched, And he who waters will himself be watered [reaping the generosity he has sown].”
 
Therefore I also SAY:
 
The Lord is causing His grace to abound towards me to be more generous and to be a blessing to others.
I refuse to be selfish.
I am a blessing to others.
The Lord is making me rich, prospering me and watering my life. I am a cheerful giver. I am a blessing to many.
Beloved you don’t wait for the Holy Spirit to stir you up before you begin to make this a practice.
According to the scriptures, you delightfully do this day and night (Psalm 1:2). This doesn’t mean morning and evening. It is a Hebrew expression which means do this during your full day activity. As you sleep, you mediate, whiles you wake up and as you go about your daily activity you hāgāh!
It is your full day activity!
The scripture reveals what you will become when you do this:
 
You shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever you do shall prosper. (See Psalm 1:3).
 
Understand that whether you do this or not, you are speaking a word over your life. You will always speak what is in your heart.
Jesus said, the mouth will speak the abundance of the heart (See Matthew 12:34).
Therefore put God’s Word in your heart.
This is an intentional life.
 
GO AHEAD TO DECLARE YOUR INHERITANCE IN CHRIST.
 
Hallelujah!
 
 
DIG DEEPER:
(Romans 10:9; Psalm 71:8; Philippians 4:8; Deut 11:18-19; Psalm 19:14)
 
WE PRAY
– That we will continue in the practice of the word of truth which we have received.
 
BIBLE READING
Day 106: 1 Kings 4-6
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– The Lord is causing His grace to abound towards me to be more generous and to be a blessing to others.
– I refuse to be selfish.
– I am a blessing to others.
– The Lord is making me rich, prospering me and watering my life.
– I am a cheerful giver.
– I am a blessing to many.
– I am like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth fruits in its season whose leaves also shall not whither.
– Whatsoever I do shall prosper. 
OH Hallelujah, GLORY TO GOD!!!
