Maromak Nia liafuan besik lo’os ho imi. ‘ Roma 10:8

Se karik o la kuidadu no fasil hodi koalia liafuan duvida nebe kontra ho Maromak nia liafuan. Paulo hakerek kona ba liafuan nebe salva: Liafuan ne’e besik hoi mi, iha imi nia ibun, no mos imi nia laran.

Ida ne’e mak mensagem kona ba fiar nebe ami fo sai. Entaun koalia Nai Maromak nia liafuan bazeia ba situasaun ita nian no hare nia servisu iha ita, hodi halo buat hotu ba ita.

Liafuan konfesa ligadu ho liafuan ‘ gregu homologia, nebe signifika ‘konkorda’ ou koalia buat nebe hanesan’. Ida ne’e mos signifika katak ita tenki konkorda ho Maromak nia liafuan no aprende koalia buat nebe Nia koalia, la importa a’at hira mak ita hare iha momentu ne’e. se laos ida ne’e mak Maromak hateten, ida ne’e kontraprodutivu. Maibe se los, o nia liafuan sai hanesan kilat nebe makas. Biblia hateten oinsa liafuan lo’os iha forsa makas! (Job 6:25).

Liafuan forsa ne’e mai husi liafuan hebraica marats, nebe signifika ‘pressionar’.  Atu hanesan ho kadeli liurai nian nebe babain hanehan nia autoridade ba document. O nia rekonhesimentu fiar taka problema iha Maromak nia oin.

Jesus hateten: se imi fiar teb-tebes, imi bele haruka foho ida muda tiha ba tasi laran. I Nai Maromak sei muda foho ne’e, naran katak imi fiar tebes.

Hanoin didiak! Buat hotu nebe imi husu ba Nai Maromak, se imi fiar katak Nia sei fo, Nia sei fo dunik (Markus 11:23-24).

Labele koalia deit ba Maromak kona ba o nia foho sira, koalia o nia foho uza Maromak nia liafuan.

Kuandu o halo Maromak nia liafuan sai o nia liafuan, o nia foho sira bele muda. (MF)

Saying The Right Thing

‘The word is near you.’ Romans 10:8 NIV

If you’re not careful, it’s easy to speak words of doubt that contradict what God says in His Word. Paul writes of the word that saves, ‘“The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim.’ So, speak God’s Word over your situation and watch Him go to work on your behalf, setting things right for you.

The word ‘confession’ is related to the Greek word homologia, which means ‘to come into agreement with, or say the same thing’. That means you must come into agreement with God’s Word and learn to say what He says, no matter how bad things look at the time. If it’s not what God is saying, it’s counterproductive. But if it is, your words become powerful weapons.

The Bible says, ‘How forcible are right words!’ (Job 6:25 KJV) This word ‘forcible’ comes from the Hebrew word marats which means ‘to press’. Just like a king’s signet ring pressed his seal of authority onto a document, your confession of faith seals the matter before God. Jesus said: ‘Assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Be removed and be cast into the sea,” and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore… whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.’ (Mark 11:23–24 NKJV)

Don’t just speak to God about your mountain—speak to your mountain using God’s Word! When you make God’s Word your word, your mountain will begin to move.

SoulFood: 2 Kings 6:8–23, Matt 5:43–48, Luke 6:27–36
