CONFESSION

For “He who would love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking deceit.

1 Peter 3:1

Isn’t it amazing how our opening verse just clearly shows us the secret to “the good life”? What a revelation! That the totality of a man’s experience reflects his tongue-walk. 

As a man develops in the things of God, the beautiful thing you’ll come to appreciate is the absence of bias in the scripture. Scriptures are honest and unbiased, it says “if you want to see many happy days watch what you say”. It thus reveals to us that you are responsible for how your life turns out. I love this scripture a lot! Confessions are not just made-up positive affirmations we say, it’s not to come off as “holier than thou” or “Spooky Christians”. Confessions, in other words, utterance, are building blocks that frame reality.

Confessions is more than having a “Christianese” or “Biblical” vocabulary. They are Words that carry Power! Hebrews 11:3 “By Faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible” 

The world was framed by words, our salvation was consummated upon the Confession of that which we have believed. How powerful confessions are. A man is saved by confessing what the word says Jesus has done, the world (matter) came into existence by reason of God’s spoken word— “And God said, let there be light and there was light”

Our confessions as believers should stem out from what God’s word has already said in His word, if God calls you holy, it’s a negative confession to call yourself otherwise.  I once met a believer whose bio on social media said, “Nobody Holy!” It was funny. We ought to say things consistent with that which the Word has said.  

We confess God’s words not what we can see or feel. If God calls us righteous, we confess that! If God’s word says God supplies our need, we confess that (Philippians 4:19). Your confessions reflect how much God’s word have taken root in you. Colossians 3:16 admonishes “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom…” 

As we give attention to God’s word, in reading, meditation and praying with it, it will become part of our vocabulary and that way it will be coming from the heart and not from the head only. That way our words will release omnipotence as we speak them.

CONFESSION: I CONFESS THAT MY WORDS ARE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE WORD OF GOD, I AM NOT CARELESS WITH MY WORDS BECAUSE I KNOW THAT THEY CARRY POWER. I AM AWARE THAT IN THE REALM OF THE SPIRIT, GOD’S WORD ON THE LIPS OF A BELIEVER IS LIKE GOD TALKING, AND SO I SPEAK BOLDLY, I SPEAK CONFIDENTLY. MY WORDS DO NOT FALL TO THE GROUND BUT THEY PRODUCE THAT WHICH I SEND THEM TO DO. HALLELUJAH.

THERE IS LOVE IN SHARING

      Our confessions as believers should stem out from what God’s word has already said in His word. That means feeding ourselves with the word is a daily necessity for positive and powerful confession.
      Thank You Pastor

      There is so much power In the tongue. The Tongue should be kept holy, we should not confess negatively to others or ourselves.
      I love todays’ devotional. So powerful.
