Christian faith can never proceed beyond its confession, therefore, it is incumbent, as a possessing believer, to manifest your living in the light of your testimony. Life in the word of God only becomes real as you confess its reality. Christian living, then, must consistently affirm, “we walk by faith and not by sight”.
People who are continually looking for experiences are always walking by the senses. Their experience of life is clouded since they only confess what they see, hear, and feel. Satan has no fear of their testimony, because as long as he can deceive them, through blindness, he can hold them in bondage and keep them from living out the reality of their freedom in Christ.
Your confession reacts on your heart, as Paul intimates, “That if thou shall confess with thy mouth”. When you speak of the power of the Father which is yours, filling your mouth with praise for the answers to petitions, it makes a tremendous impact on the heart. This will cause your faith to grow by leaps and bounds.
On the other hand, talking about your trials, troubles, lack of faith and money will result in a decrease in your faith. Negative confession will lead to a loss in spiritual virility and cause your whole spirit life to dry up. When facing the opposition of sense knowledge, you should be bold to act on the word of God.
No matter what it looks like, assume your position, make your confession and don’t let go, even when the situation seems impossible. You must consider faith asks not for the possible, but faith demands the impossible. That thing which you ask for in prayer is not what is possible, but that which is unreasonable.
Disdain to entertain doubt and let not fear intimidate you, but hold fast to your confession of dominion over every case in Jesus Name. Remember it is God who is working in you and for you. He has given us His Son, then, “How shall He not freely give us all things”. Live out your victory in the light of your testimony.
