Use your power of faith confession
Mark 11:22-23 “Have faith in God. I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, fall into the sea.’ And if you have no doubts in your mind and believe that what you say will happen, God will do it for you.” Youth Bible
Extra Reading: Mark 11: 20-24
Most Christians believe that there is power in faith. 3000 years ago Solomon wrote these words, “You might get trapped by what you say; you might be caught by your own words.” (Proverbs 6:2 Youth Bible). He realized the power of what you say! For there is power to snare, power to deliver, power to cure, power to kill in your mouth. There lies power beyond your imagination in what you say! Praise be to God He said it first. Jesus exalted the mystery of the power of confession when He fearlessly proclaimed: “I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, fall into the sea.’ And if you have no doubts in your mind and believe that what you say will happen, God will do it for you.” (Mark 11:23). Many people talked and argued about this; some have doubted, even disbelieved this; but God’s Word is true! Truly speaking, this declaration of fact needs no discussion, no explanation by us modern Christians, and it needs no compromising. God said it and we must just believe it without a doubt. Paul once said, “…Let God be true, but every man a liar….” (Romans 3:4). My brother, my sister, there is power in what you say. “You shall have whatsoever you say”-if you believe.
Your confession can bring negative results. Let me make an illustration here. If a mother sees her child cough mildly and start saying, “Oh Molly, you have flu”. She has no medical proof that she has flu but, upon confessing that little Molly has flu, the mother has opened the door to this disease by what she said with her lips, and, sure enough, Molly gets the flu. When she said it she didn’t doubt it and she got what she said or confessed negatively. If this works in the negative why can’t we Christians become absolutely positive in our confession (what we say) of God’s Word, and see the provisions of that Word in our daily life and home? You and I can. The mother to this little Molly could have said, “…He himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses and by His stripes we are healed” (Matthew 8:17). In the face of what the mother says, the infirmity must loose its hold on Molly. Evangelist T.L. Osborn once shared the secret of healing with one servant of God. He said, “There are three things to be considered in sickness: First, what the symptoms say; Second, what God’s Word says; and Third, what you say! If you say what God says, the sickness has to go. If you say what the symptoms say, you have what you say!” Ask the Holy Spirit to help you. That which you are praying, seeking, and searching for is in your mouth. Speak it right now. Shout it! (Psalm 47:1). Tell others about it! Deliver yourself with your testimony! Try it! God is involved in our testimony, in our profession, in our confession, in what we say-that things happen.
Prayer: Father God, help me to confess Your Word in all my situations. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen!
