Confession is faith’s way of expressing itself. The expression of faith is always in confession and/or acting on the Word. Our opening Scripture clearly shows us that we have the same Spirit of faith as God, therefore we believe and speak in line with our faith. We must say what God says about us in faith and in agreement with God. Confession of faith is saying what you believe in consonance with the Word. That means that you have come to terms with the mind of God as touching that thing; in agreement with God, such that what you are saying is what God would say in that situation. One may prepare the heart to believe by talking to the heart in meditation in God’s Word but that is still not the confession of faith. That’s meditative confession. Joshua 1:8 tells us to meditate in the Word by confessing it, which is not allowing the Word to depart from our mouth. This kind of confession is not the confession of speaking forth our faith, rather it is the confession that primes us ready to speak in faith. Such confession is meditative. You are actually planting the Word in your heart. You are sowing the seed of God’s Word into the soil of your heart and in no time, your heart agrees with the Word and believes it. That’s what is called meditative confession.
The confession of faith speaks forth faith to address things, situations and circumstances. Mark 11:23 describes the confession of faith, which is speaking the Word of faith authoritatively to cause a change. It says, whosoever shall say to this mountain, be removed and be cast into the sea; but shall not doubt in his heart but shall believe that the things which he says shall come to pass, he shall have what he says. This means that you are speaking God’s Word in absolute faith, without entertaining the possibility of not seeing its manifestation. You are speaking from absolute faith, not from doubt or a look alike of faith. You are speaking from a rock-solid conviction that the Word is true, and God is faithful to bring His Word to pass. So, you are speaking forth your faith into fulfilment. You are commanding the manifestation of your faith. This kind of confession is authoritative. It is not passive, but active and virile. When you believe, faith demands that you speak in line with what you believe. Having believed the Word, faith doesn’t keep quiet. Faith speaks what it believes. When faith is rock-solid on the inside, it expresses itself in confession. That means you confess what you believe, and your confession stems from the overflow of your faith. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth does speak. If there’s an abundance of conviction in your heart, your mouth will speak consistent with that conviction. Don’t keep quiet any longer but begin to say what you believe; and you will see it come to pass. Hallelujah!
MY SOLID FRONT (YOUR CONFESSION):
In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, in my meditation, I speak to build up my faith; and in my confession of faith, I speak to change things. My words are powerful because I speak in consonance with God. Hallelujah!
Matthew 12:34, Luke 6:45.
