What God says IS

Luke 1:35-45
New Living Translation (NLT)
35 The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God. 36 What’s more, your relative Elizabeth has become pregnant in her old age! People used to say she was barren, but she has conceived a son and is now in her sixth month. 37 For nothing is impossible with God."(Some manuscripts read For the word of God will never fail.)
38 Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” And then the angel left her.
39 A few days later Mary hurried to the hill country of Judea, to the town 40 where Zechariah lived. She entered the house and greeted Elizabeth. 41 At the sound of Mary’s greeting, Elizabeth’s child leaped within her, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
42 Elizabeth gave a glad cry and exclaimed to Mary, “God has blessed you above all women, and your child is blessed. 43 Why am I so honored, that the mother of my Lord should visit me? 44 When I heard your greeting, the baby in my womb jumped for joy.45 You are blessed because you believed that the Lord would do what he said.”

The belief that what God says "IS" will permeate the atmosphere around you.  As you begin to carry the confidence of His promise into your everyday life; in your walk, your countenance, the way you speak to yourself and others, the environment around you will become richer.  Just as the babe in Elizabeth's stomach 'leaped within her', so will the thing God is birthing in those you pass by 'leap' within them and on and on.  You will become the conduit to revival- the process of bringing somebody back to life, consciousness, or full strength;  the belief (the faith), the honor (the obedience) that creates fulfillment of the things that are spoken (to our hearts) by God stretching across a family, a church, a city, country or nation.  
Your obedience to His words will be your testimony and the prophecy of Christ.  It begins with you.
