Day 26

Are you convinced that confession changes things? I want you as sure of this fact as you are when you turn the faucet on that water will come out. When you turn the water on, you expect it to flow from the faucet; when you turn the water of the Word on, you should expect the Word to manifest because it is  more certain than the faucet (the faucet could get broke, your water could get cut off or there could be a shortage but the Word will not disappoint).
Today, we look at reason five confession works: Because it brings faith. Romans 10: 17 says "So faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." When you speak the Word of God it will bring faith to you because faith is in the Word. Just like an apple seed has the components to make an apple, the Word contains the elements inside it to produce faith. So when you are confessing what God says on a subject, you are sowing seeds of faith concerning that subject. Stop and ponder this; as you speak His Word, you are sowing faith seeds on that circumstance. To those that need physical healing, when you speak "by the stripes of Jesus I am healed," you are applying the medicine of God's Word to the illness (Proverbs 4:22).
Today, make a special effort to sow (that is speak) some faith seeds to those around you and remember that after you sow then comes the harvest!
