LESSON

Key Scriptures: Let us HOLD FAST the confession of our hope WITHOUT WAVERING, for he who promised is faithful.” –Heb. 10:23 (ESV)

The Big Idea:

We must hear, speak, hold fast to, and apply the word of God to our lives to have a faith that can move mountains.


Main Points:

  1. Hear the Word

    • “Faith comes from hearing and hearing through the Word of Christ.” –Rom. 10:17
    • The Holy Spirit wrote the words in the Bible. He knows the exact Scripture that He can move from your mind to your heart.
    • Until you hear that word, there is no faith.
  2. Speak the Word

    • Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?” He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if YOU HAVE FAITH like a grain of mustard seed, YOU WILL SAY to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” –Mt. 17:19-20
    • Jesus spoke to trees and they died, storms and they stopped, dead people and they lived.
    • Your words are your declaration; you either agree with God or the enemy.
      • David spoke to Goliath and then did the impossible. (1 Sam. 17)
      • Joshua spoke to the sun and then did the impossible. (Joshua 10)
  3. Hold Fast to the Word

    • “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.” –Heb. 10:23
    • What if you believe in your heart and declare with your mouth, but nothing seems to change? You continue to hold fast to your profession.
    • The more your ears hear it, the more your faith grows. You become persuaded and convinced of the promise of God. Your mouth remains in agreement with God’s promise.
      • Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised. For, “Yet a little while, and the coming one will come and will not delay; but my righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him.” –Heb. 10:35-38
  4. Application

    • Get a Word.
    • Speak the Word.
      • Debt: Be removed.
      • Depression: Be gone.
      • Division: Be removed.
      • Disease: Be healed.
