I remember the time I wanted to transition my hair, from relaxed to natural kinky hair. I made the decision because my permed hair was bad and heat damaged and wasn’t good at all. I was worried about how my hair would turn out, would it be full? Would it be strong, black, long? Would it even grow out at all. All these were the questions I kept asking myself and everybody around me. In as much I wasn’t happy with my hair I’d rather have it than have a bald hair. Everyone had their opinion, some were for me cutting and transitioning others were against it. I had a particular friend who expressed her disapproval vehemently because she felt like if my permed hair took three years to grow out then what hope does my natural hair have, which is quite logical right?
After much deliberation and worrying , I woke up one morning and just cut my hair, I still had my doubts but I was happy. On a particular morning, I stood in front of the mirror and I just started speaking the life of God into my hair. I said; ‘the life of God runs through my veins, so I declare that my hair, you grow out, fine, strong and thick. I enjoy supernatural hair growth that defies time’. There I was against all odds and all the negative things and doubts I’ve thought and heard about my hair. I decided to stop bothering myself on whether or not I just made a mistake by cutting my hair, I decided to start speaking life into my hair and subsequently, as I remembered… I continued speaking life and positive words about my hair and I wasn’t surprised when my hair growth defied time and grew out super healthily.
You’re probably thinking ‘so how does your hair story relate to what I’m going through? Well, it does. Only if you’d ignore all the negative feelings about what you are going through and just be a believer and believe for what you want to see and after painting the picture of what you want to see in your heart, you starting speaking what you want to see into existence. When there is a doubt in your heart, instead of feeding on the doubt, speak what you want to see instead. That’s exactly what steps of faith are about. 2 Corinthians 2:13….’And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak, knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus will also raise us up with Jesus, and will present us with you.’
I have heard testimonies of people who stood on God’s word and confessed it till they saw the result they wanted. Revelations 12:11….’And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death’.
The word works as long as you are willing to work it. Since words created the world, why not create your world with your words.
Forward Steps: Based on your heart and what the challenges you are faced with right now, search out scripture concerning them and start confessing till your heart is made to believe in the positive and you are unable to see or say anything that is not positive. Remember, A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks…Luke 6:44-49.
