When we’re in church or studying the Bible, we’ll boldly confess the Word of God because we know the benefits to our confession. We’ll declare we’re healed, we’re successful, and we’re victorious in every area of our lives, but when someone asks how we’re doing, our responses may be different from our confession.

We may respond by saying “it’s rough right now” or “I don’t know how I’m going to make it.” We think we’re being honest in our responses but, we’re actually contradicting our confession. We’ll confess one thing but, we’ll respond with what we truly believe.

Our confession and responses in conversations need to line up. It may seem weird or over the top to some to speak with positive bold authority over our situation but it’s either appearing weird or delaying the progress of our breakthrough.

Let’s confess the Word of God privately and promote our confession publicly through our responses.

Luke 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart[a] brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
