Hebrews 2:17-18 NIV says “For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.” Confession is to say the same thing as. As those who are more than conquerors we are to side with the Word of God rather than our feelings.
The wonderful part is that we have a great High Priest who has felt what we experience, and also knows the victory and overcoming power that is present with life’s experiences. When we say the same thing that He says in His word we tap into that victory. Jesus is only in charge of the words that the Father has spoken. The enemy comes to separate us from the word, if he can get our words in alignment with what we see and feel rather than what the Word of God says then he has us derailed. The Bible says in Hebrews 10:23 ESV says “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.”
God is only in charge as much as we allow Him to be. He is faithful to keep His word on our behalf, therefore we should be standing in opposition to everything that comes against the Word of God. The Bible says in Proverbs 18:20 NIV says “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit”. Often times opportunities and possibilities that are presented before us are cancelled by our “ I can’t”. As believers we are those who should confess who we are in Christ, what we have in Christ, what I can do in Christ, and where I am in Christ. Why? Because this is God’s House. Hebrews 3:4-6 NIV says “For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. “Moses was faithful as a servant in all God’s house,” bearing witness to what would be spoken by God in the future. But Christ is faithful as the Son over God’s house. And we are his house, if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory.”
