Day 29

As I sit in front of the computer this morning I have such a sense of the power of God's Word. God Almighty, the Creator of the universe, has chosen us to be the recipients of His Word. We are not to sit idly by with this treasure; we are to do something with His Word.
Psalms 119: 89 says: "Forever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven." God's Word is firmly established in heaven; He has entrusted us with the mission to establish His Word on earth. When we speak His Word from a believing heart, we are establishing His Word on earth. What an awesome responsibility! I hope you are getting a sense that confession is really not about you; it is all about Him! Yes, we reap some benefits through confession (like "the blessing"), but that is not the chief aim. We are to be establishing His Word through our speaking it in faith.
Today, pray this confession of faith:
"Heavenly Father, I thank you for your Word today. I establish Your Word on earth by my speaking it in faith. I do this today for Your Glory. I confess that You are the Sovereign Lord, the one and only true God. I exalt Your Name today. In Jesus' Name, Amen."
