Does faith have a sound? This was the opening question at Hillsong Conference this week, which I attended with a few Northsiders, along with Justin Bieber ( I did actually see him from afar!)
What they really mean is – there is power in our confession, or rather, the words we say have influence over our lives. In Proverbs 18:21 (NLT) we read “the tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.”
There are dozens of references to the mouth and to speak in the Bible. Our faith is an active faith, and by beginning to speak words of gratitude and faithfulness, it can transform our mind and our situation. Here are a few Bible references to look up: Heb 13:15, Psalm 19:14, Mark 11:23-24, Gal 3:5, 2 Cor 4:13, Romans 5:2, and there are countless references throughout Proverbs. So what is the sound of your faith?
