Using faith confessions is a powerful way to change your life. Hebrews 4:14 says, “Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.” (NKJV)
In the Youth Devotional, Load Up, p.118, Gloria Copeland writes, “Your confession is what you say- not just with your lips, but with your actions. The Bible says Jesus is the High Priest of your confession (Hebrews 3:1). That means He has the authority to make anything you say by faith happen- as long as it’s in line with the Word.”
Speaking faith-filled words will change not only your thoughts but your body and circumstances as well.
In Mark 11:23, Jesus said, “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”
Isn’t that wonderful! If you believe, you can change your life by changing your words.
However, unless you’ve trained yourself to do so, you probably won’t just stumble out of bed every day and start speaking faith words out of your mouth. It takes diligence and effort.
One solution is to have your confessions written out ahead of time and making an effort to read them out loud every day. You can keep them with your Bible so you’ll remember to say them when you are doing your devotions or you can put them in a place where you’ll have access to them throughout the day, such as on your desk, on your refrigerator or on your phone.
