If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. – John 15:7
Confession is admission and profession. The profession is saying something that you believe or don’t believe, something that you are or aren’t. Confession can be positive or negative either way words spoken will bring about an action. Confessions, and belief go further than us confessing to salvation. Words are spoken daily and throughout the day. We need to pay close attention to what we’re speaking. According to the Word of God, we shall have what we say (For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith – Mark 11:23). Confession precedes possession, and we can’t possess it if we’re not believing in our hearts.
So many times Christians become weary because what they have spoken hasn’t been manifested, but we must pay attention to what was spoken before the confession and after the confession. Many times we confess and degree something, and afterward, we begin to speak words that are contrary to what we have spoken. Then there are times we confess and degree but our hearts aren’t believing what was speaking. Our words can bring a blessing or a curse to our life. Our words will make us have victory or defeat. Our words can be filled with faith that will stir heaven, or it will stir hell; one or the either will be stirred by our words.
Our faith will never register above the words of our mouth. We can fill our words with love and faith, or we can speak negatively and receive the fruit of our words that bring forth negative faith. We can either have positive faith or negative faith both will bring actions. We will either rise to the level of our confession, or we will fall to the level of our confession.
We need to learn to cultivate the habit of thinking big things for God and learn to use words that will react upon our own spirit, words that are positive and faith-filled. Have you been around someone who was going through a test or a trial and all they talked about was doubt, unbelief, and failure? After hearing all of this you went away feeling like a spirit of depression or anger tried to attach itself to you. Well, if what this person said affected you, how much more will what you say will affect you?
We have to believe the words we speak in our hearts and then say what we believe. If you ever notice what you’re saying about a situation or circumstance, unknowingly, many times we’re speaking negative words, especially if the problem is close to our heart or emotions. Whether our words are filled with faith or doubt, they will dominate the circumstances in our life. Our words will make us a victory or they will keep us in captivity. Words are actions and they are powerful!
