CONFESSING RIGHT

July 11:2018

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.
2 Corinthians 4:13‬ (‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬)‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

`

The concept of faith confession is one that has been discussed for decades and yet, many people struggle in handling their confessions. The devil has no problem with us making confessions; he only does when those confessions are made out of a firm persuasion.

The efficacy of our confessions is dependent on the connection between our hearts and our mouths. What our mouths confess must be based on what our hearts have believed or are firmly persuaded about. Our salvation, for instance, began with us believing that Jesus is the Son of God and that He came in the flesh, died and rose again for our sakes. It was only after believing this that we could confess with our mouths unto salvation.

For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation (Romans‬ ‭10:10‬).‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

We also see an expression of the same pattern in our main scriptural text. They believed first before they spoke! Our persuasion about the word of God must be formed and set in our hearts first. For our confessions to be effective, they must be powered by our faith - a firm persuasion about a word we have believed!

Beloved, I pray that the word of God will be mixed with faith in your heart this year and be expressed through confident confessions of your mouth, to bring all your dreams to reality.
