5 Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
6 So we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you[a] shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
Have you ever been alarmed over the fact that in your own life and in the lives of others, there is sometimes a sense of defeat and failure? Could it be that you have been holding on to two different confessions at the same time? Have you been making two confessions? Have you been confessing the absolute truth of the Word, and at the same time making confession of your weakness, defeat and sense evidences? You may say, I believe that by the stripes of Jesus I am healed, but in the next breath, you are confessing your pain and weakness and misery. That’s what it means to have two confessions. None of such confessions is potent, for the 2nd confession repudiates the 1st. You cannot be cold and hot at the same time. That’s lukewarmness, and God hates that with a passion. It’s either you are cold or hot. It’s either you are holding on to the confession of the Word or you are not.
You have the victory in the great battle to gain the mastery over your confession when you learn that you ought to have just one confession, which is the confession of the Word of God. Remember, faith holds fast to the confession of the Word. Unbelief or sense knowledge holds fast to the confession of physical evidences. Listen, if you accept physical evidence against the Word of God, you nullify the Word as far as you are concerned. If you hold fast to your confession that God’s Word is true in the face of apparent contradictions, that by Jesus’ stripes you are healed, and that God supplies all your needs according to His riches in glory, He is bound to make it good. Now, study the Word until you know what your rights are, and then hold fast to them. That’s how to have a solid foundation for your confession. For example, you study the Word and know that the Lord has said concerning you, “Surely he hath born our griefs (sicknesses) and carried our sorrows (diseases)” – Isaiah 53:4-5. Now you make your confession in line with the Word. Stand by your confession through thick and thin, through good report and evil. You know that your confession is according to the Word.
MY SOLID FRONT (YOUR CONFESSION):
In the Name of Jesus Christ, I declare that I maintain the confession of my faith in God’s Word without wavering. I refuse to confess anything and everything that contradicts the Word of God. I am a success and I maintain my confession of perfect victory and healing in Jesus’ Name! Amen.
