If you’ve been discouraged for a spell, then say, “It is well.”
Or if anxious and problems seem to swell, say, “It is well.”
For Christ is the Victor, and He’s passed that on to you.
Your words have power to see you through.
And cast all care upon your Lord.
Give thanks for the answers that He’ll afford.
When you’re doubtful with fears you need to quell, then say, “It is well.”
Or if dismayed ’cause bad news came to tell, say, “It is well.”
Remember the Shunammite woman, great confidence had she.
Elisha came to pray for her son, and God gave her the victory.
We may not have always seen such great things,
But we still look to our God from whom all hope springs.
And we’re growing in faith about each word,
‘Til opposing circumstances have heard–
Giving angels God’s Word on which to move,
For God desires His promises to prove.
Yes, we’re saying, “It will be well.”
Yes, it IS well!
Reference: the story of the Shunammite woman in II Kings 4; and after verse 20, when her son died–yet she said:
“…it shall be well.” verse 23
“…it is well.” verse 26
and her son was raised up. verses 33-37

The following scriptures remind about the importance of speaking in faith, (often in the midst of a “storm”). Our words of faith, especially through scriptural promises, and prayer can make a difference in a situation. And Jesus said to speak unto the mountain.
” For 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 I say to you,whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” Mark 11:23-24 NKJV
“With the fruit of a man’s mouth his stomach will be satisfied; he will be satisfied with the product of his lips. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:20, 21
“He who guards his mouth and his tongue, guards his soul from troubles.”
“Are they (angels) not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” Hebrews 1:14

“For we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7
“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the men of old gained approval. By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.” Hebrews 11:1-3
“Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations), before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, so shall thy seed be.” Romans 4:16-18 KJV
“Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
