From The Father’s Heart 7th November 2021
I want to show you today how to build a dominating confession life.
In building a dominating confession life, you must watch two things:
- Watch your spirit
- Watch your mouth
If any error or weakness gets into those two places, you’ll be dominated by the devil.
Matt 4:4 says, “But He answered and said: it is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”
There are two dimensions of the words that proceed out of the mouth of God:
- The words we capture from the Bible, and
- The words that come in our days.
You must ask yourself these questions: By whose words will I live?
Will I live by the words that proceed out of the mouth of God or the words that proceed from my feelings and reasoning?
- How many of the words that proceed out of the mouth of God do I have?
- How much do I take heed to?
- How much do I capture?
Job 23:12b says, “I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.”
As Christians, we will do the same things that people do in the world, but we are supposed to have a different result. But if our result is going to be different, we must be connected to a power different from theirs. Unfortunately, many Christians in our days have results not too different from unbelievers. Why is this so? It is simply because we often operate by the principles of the world.
What then will make our results different as Christians? First, we must be ready to operate the Christian life. The Christian life is described in Psalms 71:7; “I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.” This scripture captures the Christian life.
As Christians, we have dual citizenship. You are a child of God, and you are a child of another man on the earth. You are not normal, so your experiences are not supposed to be normal. Therefore, you must make up your mind that you will have the Christian experience in 2021/2022.
Think of all the experiences you have had in the past. Will you continue to have a normal human experience or the Christian experience? There is a price to pay to have the Christian experience; you must be ready to pay that price because whoever pays the price enjoys the blessings.
You must set up a bank, a bank of words from God.
When God says, man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from God. Therefore, it implies your life must be empowered by the word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.
The words that proceed from the mouth of God give you a life, and that life is not the normal life!
Normal life doesn’t make you a wonder because everyone can do it. God wants you to have a life that is tied to the supernatural. If natural resources power all your life, it will fail. As we move towards the coming of Jesus, the things that feed the natural life will be failing, but only the supernatural won’t fail.
Set up your WORD BANK from which you can draw out regularly, and put those words in your mouth.
Finally, WATCH YOUR HEART and WATCH YOUR MOUTH. It is those things that you say, that you believe, that you shall have.
Fill your heart with what God has said and fill your mouth with the same. It is from the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
Till next time, go and win with Jesus.
