And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. F or verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. And when Jesus replied to Peter, it probably was not in a monotone voice.
Speak the Word of God, and Jesus speaks through your voice
Have faith in God. He used a mountain as an example, but I believe it could apply to anything. He was making the point that if we say it with our mouths and believe it in our hearts, we can have what we say. He was making it clear that words have power. But He also said to have faith in God.
Grace Is Power, Not Just Pardon
The words that have power are words that are filled with faith. Romans say that faith comes by the Word, and 1 Peter says you are born again by the Word of God.
Think of it like using a ladle to dish up soup. If you used the same ladle every time—and God did—every person will get the same amount of soup. You have the measure of faith. No born-again believer has more faith than any other; some just do a better job of appropriating what they have been given.
This scripture is not symbolic; God actually created everything with words. He spoke creation into existence, and the substance of His faith manifested into what we can now see. The Word of God has unlimited power.

Each word is like a little capsule filled with faith waiting for us believers to release it in our hearts and speak it with our mouths. Everything we see was created by words, and it is the very Word of God that holds the universe together Heb. Therefore, everything we see will respond to faith-filled words. They have to respond because words are the parent force. Proverbs says that as you think in your heart, so are you, and Luke says that what you speak comes from the abundance of your heart. In other words, the way that you think controls the way that you talk.
And if you understand that your words have power, then you understand why you can be hung by your tongue.
