As a believer, you must understand the law of confession, the law that governs confession and how the new man in Christ ought to speak. Understanding the law of confession forms the foundation of victory in Christ. We overcome by our confession, not just by our believing. The word ‘confession’ is from the root word “homologos”. Homo means ‘same’, logos means ‘mind and/or speech’. So, when we are talking about the logos of God, we are talking about the mind or will of God; His communication. Homologos simply means to say the same thing as God in conviction or understanding (in mind, thoughts and will). It is not just saying something or repeating something verbatim in line with what God has said, but it means that you are saying in faith what God has said, in consonance with God. You are saying the same thing with God in faith, in agreement, in sync, in harmony with God and as a witness to the truth and verity of the Word of God. That’s what it means to confess the Word. When you say what God has said concerning you, you are bearing witness to the Word in your life, in your situation; therefore, the Word is established in your life. When you bear witness to the verity of the Word in your case, the Word prevails over every circumstance and situation. The prevailing Word in our lives is the Word in the lips of faith. That Word is as potent as the Word in the lips of the Master. Hallelujah!
So, when we confess the Word, we are simply saying what we believe of the Word. Confession is not just saying the Word. Confession is giving utterance to the Word in our spirit. Faith is involved here. It is not just speaking, but faith speaking. It is speaking the Word in faith. You are speaking the Word in the light of our redemption in Christ. In our confession of the Word, the finished works of Christ is in view. You are saying what you know in your heart is true with God and true in your case. What this means is that you have come to terms with the Word in a personal way such that you are not apart from what you are saying. You are confessing the revelation of the Word that you have received. As you say it with your mouth, you are not in doubt about what you are saying. You are speaking from the bedrock of your conviction in God’s Word. That’s what it means to confess God’s Word. When you confess the Word and your heart repudiates God’s Word, it means that your mouth is misaligned with your heart. Your heart has not yet come to terms with the Word yet. You need to get the Word into your heart via meditation in the Word, that your confession may be effective and powerful. Confession is the alignment of the mouth with the heart, such that what you are saying is what you believe. Hallelujah!
MY SOLID FRONT (YOUR CONFESSION):
In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I declare that my mouth is aligned with my heart and I speak according to the light of God’s Word in my spirit. I confess my faith and not my doubt. Amen!
Matthew 21:21; Romans 10:8-10.
