A word of encouragement to inspire you to have faith and trust in the word fo the Lord

Your Confession Will Represent Your Possession

God’s method of receiving His blessings is found in Joshua 1:8. “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” In addition, in Mark 11:24, Jesus said, “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” In order to receive, we must believe and confess what we read. Our faith in God’s word comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Rom 10:17)

God has already provided us with the key to receive what we desire from Him. However, if we don’t use the key, the door will never open. We will never have more than what we believe and confess. For with the heart, we believe and with our mouth, confession is made unto salvation. (Rom 10:10) We can’t believe beyond what we are saying out loud. Our Lord and Savior operate on faith-filled words. Whatever we confess is what we shall receive, and if we choose to confess the wrong words, we are neglecting the faith we should have in the Lord.

So, you say, “I just can’t make up my mind whether I will confess His word or anything else, but nothing seems to be working.” Well, the Lord said in His word, He knows you and knows your works, and He would rather you make a choice. However, you don’t know if you want to be on fire with His living word, or cold and dead. That’s ok, because the Lord will decide for you. He said because you are lukewarm (straddling the fence), He doesn’t want anything lukewarm in His mouth, therefore, He chooses to spit you out of His mouth. (Rev. 3:15-16)

Just as your negative confession will bring negative results, a neutral confession, which is not a confession at all, produces the same as a negative confession. God operates on faith words. If we want to experience the blessings of healing, and abundant life that Jesus hung, bled, and died to give us, then we must repent and renew ourselves with the divine plan God has established to receive His blessings. Now, we know what we should be doing; let us start confessing His words out loud daily.

One more thing, confessing His word is not all we have to do to receive the blessings and benefits that Jesus has already provided for us. We must HOLD FAST OUR PROFESSION OF FAITH WITHOUT WAVERING, FOR HE IS FAITHFUL THAT PROMISED. (Heb. 10:23) This means when the blessing doesn’t come when we expect it; we must not allow doubt to come into our heart and cause us to speak flesh-filled not spirit-filled words. Remember, what you confess is what you will possess, and His word said, “Ask in faith, nothing wavering. Let not that person think that they shall receive anything of the Lord; for a double-minded, person is unstable” (James 1:6-8) We confessed and believed in the Lord to receive salvation. Therefore, let us confess and believe in the Lord to receive His blessings. It’s a faith walk.

We must begin to speak what God has said concerning our life, and allow Him to show us the power behind His words, so they will manifest in our life as reality. Let us return to following the plan the Lord laid out for His. After all, He left us with the plans to prosper us, and give us hope and a future. (Jer. 29:11) I don’t know about you, but I would rather have His plans than mine.
