This book, Words that move mountains by E.W Kenyon stirred my heart in more ways than I can explain.
I came across it at a time when fear wanted to ruin my joy and destroy my peace. I shared one of those experiences in a recent post, What are you afraid of? Overcoming the spirit of fear. My eyes have been enlightened through this book and I have walked into a deeper understanding of the life of faith.
Below are some nuggets and declarations from this wonderful book by E.W Kenyon
1. I am complete in my spirit. I have partaken of His fullness, of His completeness; His completeness makes it possible for me to stand in His presence uncondemned and unafraid. His completeness makes me equal to any situation that may come upon me. I stand complete in His resurrection life. All that the Father saw in Him, He sees in me today. I am the workmanship of God, created in Christ Jesus.
2. Can you speak God’s Word to Satan? Then take your place and dare to fearlessly face the enemy. He can’t stand before you. God is on your side. The living Word is on your lips. Use it. You are a conqueror.
3. Who is my righteousness? Romans 3:26 says, “that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.” Christ Jesus Himself is righteous, and He is the righteousness of all who believe. This is the reality of the dream of God for humanity. If God is my righteousness, who is he that can condemn me? Who can bring me under condemnation? Who can rob me of my fellowship? (See Romans 8:34–37.) God has declared that “there is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus” …Romans 8:1.
4. I reign with Christ. All things are put underneath His feet—and beneath my feet. He is head over all things, and I am in Him. By faith, I swing free from the bondage of age-old fear and stand complete in Him, my Lord, my own.
5. Jesus is made unto me wisdom from God… 1 Corinthians 1:30. I have more wisdom than any enemy. I have more ability. This became true of me when I received His nature and life into my spirit. I am letting that nature dominate me. I have love that makes me a master and a conqueror. His own love-nature has lifted me out of bitter jealousy and selfishness. He has given to me a new self—His self; a new nature—His nature; and new abilities—His own abilities. They have swallowed me up. They dominate me in Christ.
6. Your words can be as poison to your own system. Your words are sometimes deadly. When you say, “I don’t believe I’ll ever get over this,” you are taking poison. There is no antidote for it except to break the power of that kind of confession, begin to speak the right kind of words, and make the right kind of confession. If you think and speak failure, you will go down to that level. Your words will create an atmosphere that will injure and break you.
7. Words heal and words break; words destroy and words make life as we find it today. Words heal us and words make us ill. Words bless us and words curse us. The words I just heard will linger throughout the day. How little a woman realizes that a biting, stinging word in the morning will rob her husband of efficiency through an entire day. A loving, tender, beautiful word—a little prayer word—will fill him with music that will lead him on to victory. We need the music of faith that only our loved ones can give to us. How little we have appreciated the tremendous power of words—written words, spoken words, words set to music.
8. When I believe with my heart, that means that my spirit is in agreement with the Word. Faith is developed just as love is developed. Love is developed by exercising it. The more I love, the more I am capable of loving. Faith is developed by acting on the Word of God. Every time I act on the Word, my faith becomes stronger. For instance, if I am sick in my body, I see that “by His stripes I am healed.” (See Isaiah 53:5.) I act on the Word. The Word says God laid my disease on Jesus. I take the ground that if Jesus bore my disease, I need not bear it. I act on the Word.
9. Love grows with confession. Faith grows with confession. Righteousness-consciousness grows with confession. Every time I confess my righteousness in Christ, or God’s righteousness in me, I begin to develop and grow. Every time I confess my faith, my faith grows. If one never confesses, one never grows. Your growth is measured by your confession. Just as we feed love with words, we feed faith with words—our words and God’s Word. If I talk unbelief and weakness and failure, my spirit will go down to the level of my words.
10. God has shut everything up in prayer. These heartaches and burdens can be met only through prayer. The man or woman who gets down into heart-searching prayer is the channel through whom God can work. The one who takes these burdens and bears them to the Lord in prayer is also the one whom the Lord can trust to go out and speak the necessary word when the time comes. In other words, the one who prays is a personal worker, and the personal worker is by necessity a prayer warrior.
11. The hungry hearts of the unsatisfied are looking to you and expecting results when you pray. The burdened heart of your brother or sister in the Lord expects to feel uplifted, relieved of crushing pressure. We must become real blood covenant men and women and truly share each other’s burdens. Dwell in the Word and become a real prayer warrior. Join the prayer ranks. Spend much time in the secret of His presence. Get away to where only the ear of the Father will hear, and, hearing, He will answer.
