Let the weak say, I am strong.
– Joel 3:10
Your confession is what you say—not just with your lips, but with your actions. Jesus is the High Priest of your confession. That means He has the authority to bring to pass anything you confess by faith that’s in line with His Word. That’s what He was sent by God to do. The Apostle and High Priest of our confession literally means the One God sent to watch over our words and actions of faith and see to it that they come to pass.
That means when you’re broke and you confess by faith, “My God supplies all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19), Jesus has the authority to deliver to you the necessary finances. Or, when you are sick and you confess by faith, “I’m healed by the stripes of Jesus,” you put yourself in a position to receive that healing from Him.
Some people say, “Oh, I couldn’t confess I was healed when I was actually sick. That would be lying!”
Really? Then the prophet Joel told people to lie because he said, “Let the weak say, I am strong.”
Joel wasn’t telling people to lie. He was delivering a spiritual principle. He was telling God’s people they should say what God says about them, instead of what their circumstances say about them.
The reason that seems strange to most people is they’re so selfish. They see everything from their own viewpoint. But when you confess the Word instead of your circumstances, you’re laying down your own viewpoint and speaking from God’s viewpoint instead. When you understand that, it won’t seem strange.
So speak God’s words over your circumstances today. Speak His words in faith...and watch Him move!
