Proverbs 4:20My son, attend to my words; incline your ear unto my sayings. 21Let them not depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart. 22For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

Our belief is tied to our meditation and confession. What we continuously allow ourselves to think about and what we say are what we ultimately believe.

For example, if we continuously say that we just cannot get through the winter without getting sick, then we are, in a sense, willing our bodies to receive illness, when the Word says that by His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5).  And, if we instead would confess that truth and allow the Spirit to lead us, He can show us how to avoid sickness in practical ways (taking vitamin C, or wearing socks around the house, etc.).

It’s time to change our confession, not just on the ‘big’ things like confessing for financial breakthrough, but also in the day to day things like being disciplined and self-controlled, or being patient and kind rather than irritable. Confess and meditate on what the Word says about you, and you will eventually see that reflected in your actions.

Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth; but you shall meditate therein day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success.
