Another reason confession of God’s Word works is because it keeps you focused on the solution and the result rather than the problem. Dwelling on and speaking the problem only establishes and confirms the problem. It doesn’t get rid of it. Remember, death and life are in the power of your tongue. Speak life, not death. [Reading Proverbs will help you realize how powerful your words are.]
Complaining and griping about the problem is a no-no! Not only does it establish the problem but it gives the devil access to you because you’re speaking his negative words. This is eye-opening when you recognize how powerful your words really are.
Another reason confession works is that it helps renew your mind to think the way God thinks.
Romans 12:2a (KJV) 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,
When you get saved, your spirit gets born-gain, not your mind. You still think the same way as you did before you got saved but now you have to renew your mind to think God’s thoughts instead of the world’s way of thinking. This doesn’t happen by accident.
You are the one who has to hear, study, and meditate the Word to get it into you. No one can do it for you. If you don’t do it, it won’t get done and you won’t be any better off than your unsaved neighbors except that you will be going to Heaven but you’ll be living a defeated life and you won’t have victory on this earth.
So get into God’s Word and hear, study, and meditate until you can open your mouth and speak forth the dunamis power of God!
