WHAT’S YOUR CONFESSION?
We can confess one thing or the other. We can talk about our problems (which is what we usually tend to do), or we can choose to confess that God is with us.
God gives us a wonderful promise in Isaiah 43:2, "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you., When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you." I hear many women confess how they are going through deep waters, or going through a fiery trial. The problem is that when we keep talking about our difficulties we end up staying under them.
Did you notice something in this Scripture? God promises that when you go through the deep waters, that "I will be with you." When you are enduring the fiery trial, He says, "You will not be burned." We have to change our confession, "Father, I thank You that You are with me in this trial. You are bigger than this problem and I trust You!"
Your confession determines how you come through your trial. You can come out in victory or with the smell of the fire upon you. When you put your trust in the Lord, and CONFESS OUT LOUD that God is with you, it will turn your heart from your problem to the Lord. You may still go through it, but you will go through it experiencing His power and presence with you.
