The Power of Positive Confession
More often than not the word confession connotes something negative to the average person. But that same word can be a powerful positive when it comes to the things of God.
For example, if an unbeliever would dare make the simple confession that Jesus is Lord of his life, according to Romans 10:9, and mean that in his heart, he would immediately take himself out of Satan’s kingdom and put himself into the Kingdom of God. There is no stronger, more important confession that can ever be made.
In fact, there is more in the Bible about confessing positive things than there is about confessing negative things.
The New Testament was written in the Greek language, and the Greek word for confession is the word homologeo, which means “to agree with” or say what God says about you. The fact is that God says wonderful, life-changing things about His children—those who have confessed Jesus as Lord of their lives. We only have to agree with what He says.
The power of positive confession, in line with God’s Word, will—over time—change your circumstances: your living standard, your health, your relationships, your career, and take you to heights you’ve never dreamed you could reach.
As Apostle Frederick K.C. Price reminds us, “Jesus is the High Priest of our confession. In other words, Jesus is the High Priest of our words.”
