The words of our mouth. Confessing the word. Most of us have heard the importance of these things time and again. Yet, many of us are still not seeing a manifestation of the words we are confessing in our lives, why?
This is something I have been praying about and meditating on recently.
I do believe many things are a timing issue as we are waiting on the timing of the Lord. However, I also believe that some things already belong to us and we have every right, through the blood of Jesus, to walk in these blessings now, in this present time.
If we are confessing the word…why then are we not seeing it?
What is our confession?
Confession is defined as to speak to or voice the same confession, to be in full agreement or to align with.
In other words, we are saying only what God is saying. Whatever His word says about the situation, that is the words, the only words, that are coming out of our mouth.
The Kingdom of God is a word ruled kingdom.
Mark 11:23; Truly I tell you that if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and has no doubt in his heart but believe that those things he says will come to pass, he will have whatever he says.
Matthew 12:34-35 says; Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things.
So…where will the good things in your life come from? From us speaking good things! Your words must line up with what you desire to see in your life. However, not only your words, but your actions.
James 1:22 tells us; But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
One of the meanings of the word doer is to act it out or to perform it. The confession of our mouth is not enough – our actions must match our confession.
We must perform the word, or act it out.
We cannot pray and declare healing and then begin to say how bad we feel. We cannot act like we feel horrible to get sympathy from others. We must speak the word of God with authority and then determine our actions will align with our words of faith.
If we begin to declare the word of God over our finances, God will begin to work on our behalf. However, after we declare His word over our money, we must then trust Him with it and do what the word of God says with our money. Our actions must match what our confession is.
We have all heard the old saying, actions speak louder than words. It is truth. As I said earlier, most of us have disciplined ourselves to say the right words, but our actions must match those words. We must speak the word of God and then act it out. Confession is what we say…not only with our mouth, also with our actions. Our actions will speak volumes.
When our words and our actions begin to align, the power of God will work in our lives in a powerful way. Today, I encourage you to bring your confessions of the word of God to a whole new level. Not only speak the word of God, but determine your actions will coincide with the words of our mouth. Speak and act what God says…for your actions really do speak loudly.
Let’s begin to let our voices be heard…both in word and in deed.
Meditate on this:
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:17Posted by
