We must watch the words that we allow to come forth from our mouths. Today, I am going to tell you about "confessing God's Word", making what you say come into existence in your life. God's Word is alive and it will change the circumstances in your life. You must speak God's Word to your individual circumstances or situations.
Go to the Bible and find the particular Scriptures that give you the solution to bring change to your particular circumstances. For instance, if you need a healing in your body, you must find Scrip;tures about healing. I'll write out the Scriptures that I use, and then below them I'll rewrite it, changing it to be my own personal confession.
ISAIAH 53:5 AMP ...He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement needful to obtain PEACE and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes that wounded Him we are healed and made whole.
MATTHEW 8:17 KJV ... That it might be fulfilled by Esaias (Isaiah) the prophet, saying, "Himself took our infirmities and bare our sicknesses".
1 PETER 2:24 ... By Whose stripes ye were healed.
My own personal confession of this is:
"Lord, You were wounded for my transgressions. You were bruised for my guilt and iniquities. The chastisement needful for me to obtain PEACE and well-being was upon You, and with the stripes that wounded You, I am healed and made whole. You took my infirmites and bare my sicknesses, and by Your stripes, I was healed!"
You speak it out ... someone else cannot do it for you. This brings what you need into manifestation ... into existence ... in your body.
God's Word, spoken out of your mouth in faith, will make this happen. Each time that you speak it out, your faith will become stronger. Confess this over your situation 2 or 3 times every day. Speak it out with authority and boldness. Speak the ANSWER, the outcome, that you want ... do not speak out the problem, because this just establishes the problem.
When someone asks ... "How are you today?", don't tell them about your sickness or problem ... speak out to them what God says ... "By the stripes of Jesus, I AM HEALED!" Speak the answer to them from God's Word.
You want the solution, not the problem. Don't call it like it is ... call it the way God promised. Speak out what you want ... not what you have.
Declare what God's Word reveals to you, regardless of the circumstances or how you feel about it. There is nothing more important to your faith than declaring what God has said about you with your own voice.
