Your Confession Is Your Possession!

Your Confession Is Your Possession!

Mark 11:23 KJV

23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Romans 10:10 KJV

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

 These Scriptures show us that our confession is directly related to our possession.  God’s Covenant Word is released and made active in our lives by the words we confess.  In order to possess the promises of God, we must understand that words are powerful and when released we possess what we confess!

Embrace these five principles and you will change your life. 

I.  Your Confession/Words are alive. They manifest fruit.

Proverbs 18:21 KJV

21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Proverbs 4:20-22

20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.

21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.

22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

 Example: Mark 5:25-34 (Woman with the Issue of Blood) This woman heard something, said something and did something!

II. Confession/Words frame our world. They have creative Power.

 Hebrews 11:3

3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

Example:  Genesis Chapters 1-3 (And God said…) God's creative power displayed in God speaking words!

III.  Confession/Words are essential in maintaining fellowship with God.


1 John 1:9

9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

James 5:16

16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Psalms 66:18 KJV

18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:

Example: II Samuel 11: 1-27; 12:1-14

(David’s Sin Confession of his sin with Bathsheba)

                 (I Samuel 15:1-35 (Saul’s Sin of Disobedience)

IV. Confession/Words reveal the dictates of the heart

 Matthew 12:34 KJV

34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

Luke 6:43-45 KJV

43 For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

44 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.

45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

Proverbs 23:7 KJV

7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

Example: Numbers 13:1-4; 17-20; 23-33
(Twelves Spies sent to Canaan to spy; 10 gave an evil report because of the way they saw themselves)

 V. Your confession /Words frame your future that brings you into your divine destiny. 

Ruth 1:1-22; 4:13-17 (Ruth’s Confession brought her into her divine destiny)

II Kings 4:8:37 (The Son of the Shunammite Woman was raised from the dead; by her confession she received her son back)

II Kings 2:1-18 (Elisha’s saw Elijah taken in the chariot and received the mantel of the double portion; His words brought him into his divine destiny)

Luke 1:26 – 37 (Mary’s Word shaped her destiny and brought the Savior into the World)

Luke 1: 5-23; 57-66 (Zachariah was silenced because he believed not the Angel’s message.  His Words would have shaped a different destiny for John the Baptist but God divinely intervened)

What are you saying out of your mouth?  Consider your ways and change your words.  Remember where you are today is a direct result of your own word and thinking.  Change your words and you can change your thinking which will change your world. 


Let us pray! 

Father in Jesus Name, help me keep my words and my tongue from speaking doubt and unbelief.  I pray that the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Psalms 19:14 KJV
