Confession – Change Your Life

Speak this out of your mouth. Sow this into your heart and build it into your walk.

Father, I thank you for giving me a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You. I thank you for opening the eyes of my understanding, that I might know the hope and plan of Your calling in my life, the riches of Your glory of Your inheritance in the saints, and the exceeding greatness of Your power to me who believes. [Eph 1:18-19]

For this reason, I bow my knees before the Father from Whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named. I pray that according to the riches of Your glory I might be strengthened with power through Your Spirit in my inner man. I pray that Christ may dwell in my heart through faith. And that being rooted and grounded in love I may be able to comprehend with all the saints, the breadth, length, depth, and height of the love of Christ. And I will know by experience the love that surpasses all understanding, that I may be filled with all the very fullness of God. [Eph 3:16-19]

Father, I pray that I would be filled with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, and that I would walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. That I would be strengthened with all might, according to Your glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering, with joyfulness. [Col 1:9-11]

I know Him, the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed unto His death. That by any means I may obtain to the resurrection of the dead, not that I have already obtained or am already perfect, but I press on that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has laid hold of me. I do not count myself to have apprehended but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. [Phil 3:10]

    I love this website !!!! I have many devotions and articles bookmarked. This site has truly blessed me, and, more importantly, has helped further my walk with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

    The bible says, in Hosea 4:6, God’s people perish for the lack of knowledge. There is no lack of knowledge in these pages ! Thank you all so much for assisting so many to have hope, faith, and, believe in the awesome power of prayer ! God’s blessings to all !

    Its so sad I just came across this site this year. However, no time is too late to develop our spirit man. By His grace, am making up for the years seemingly wasted over trivial things. I love this site.

  • Gretchen

    This site is such an inspiration. I share it every chance I get. Thank you for your time and effort to share the Gospel. It is so refreshing. I love this site!

  • Beautiful. I love every single post in your blog. How to print this article in pdf format?

    • Honeybee – Thank for the gracious comment. We just try to put the faith of the Bible out there as simply and as clearly as possible. The best way to make free PDF’s of anything online is by using Print Friendly and here is the exact script address for making the PDF’s. God bless you. PS – You have great taste. The two confessions you mentioned (in this comment and the other) are the best and are taken directly from Paul’s prayers for the Churches.

    I Declare

    Joel Osteen 2012

    Our words have creative power. Any time you speak something, either good or bad; you give life to what you are saying. Scripture says, “We will eat the fruit of our words.” That means you will get exactly what you’ve been saying. You are prophesying your own future. That’s why it’s so important to send your words out in the direction you want your life to go. You can’t talk defeat and expect to have victory. You can’t talk lack and expect to have abundance. You will produce whatever you say.

    Are you declaring the blessing of God over your life? Are you speaking His promises? Have you ever noticed that many of His promises are in the past tense? For example, in Ephesians God says, “I have blessed you with every spiritual blessing.” In Colossians He says, “I have made you worthy.” In Psalms He says, “I have surrounded you with favor as a shield.” These are all past tense, like it’s already happened. In order to activate His blessing, you have to come into agreement with what God has already declared about you. That’s faith!

    Maybe you don’t necessarily feel blessed today. A lot of things may be coming against you in your family, finances or health. But that doesn’t change the Word of God. Circumstances don’t change what God says about you. However, what God says about you can change your circumstances. You are the deciding factor. Instead of talking about your circumstances, be bold and say, “God, if You say I’m blessed, then I believe I’m blessed! My checkbook may not say I’m blessed. The economy may not say I’m blessed. The medical report may not say I’m blessed. But God, I know You are the ultimate authority, and if You say I’m blessed, then I declare that I am blessed!”

    When you get into agreement with God like that in your thoughts, words and actions, it opens supernatural doors and sets the blessing in motion. It allows Him to release the promises that already have your name on them! You can pull it out of the unseen spiritual realm over into the physical, seen realm. That’s what the Bible means when it says, “God speaks of nonexistent things as if they already existed.”

    I want you to live the abundant, blessed, joy-filled life that Jesus came to give you and understand that the power of your words is a major key. That’s why I’ve written my new book, I Declare – 31 Promises to Speak Over Your Life. I want you to bless your future one day at a time, one month at a time. My hope is that you’ll pick up a copy and take just a moment each day to bless your future with one of the faith-filled declarations. I Declare. So order your copy today and begin to declare God’s blessing in every area of your life!

    Please pray that the Father will speak to me about what His Will is for me. My son’s dad proposed to me last night and I don’t have peace about it yet, but I said “ok”. So please pray that the Holy Spirit will confirm or deny this engagement! In Jesus’ Name. Amen!

    • FaithMechanic

      Tiffany – It appears like maybe the Holy Spirit has already spoken to you. Not having peace in your heart is a classic message from God. Do you want Him to give you a different answer or confirm that answer? To hear Him you must be open to His will, whatever that may be. If you do not feel peace you should stop until get it sorted out. It sounds like you already know what to do.

      It is always harder to say no than say yes. I will pray for God’s renewed voice to you, and that you will hear it and obey it. Obeying God is tough but not as tough as the road ahead if you do not obey Him. God bless
