What We Confess…We Possess! by Gene McGuire August 31, 2010
“If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)
COMMENT: Romans 10:9 is a promise of God and we receive all the other promises of God the same way. . .by confessing with our mouths and believing in our hearts. People are saved because they hear the Word of God which brings about the faith necessary to complete the transaction. When we hear other promises of God, we need faith to bring them into fruition. Since faith comes by hearing, the more you confess that promise with your mouth, the more faith you are building. Put it in your eyes, put it in your ears, put it in your heart and let it come out of you mouth and be persistent and consistent!
SCRIPTURE STUDY: Isaiah 55:11, Mark 11:23,24
WISE SAYING: WORDS ARE CONTAINERS. THEY CARRY FAITH OR FEAR AND THEY PRODUCE AFTER THEIR KIND.
SOME PROMISES TO CONFESS “I AM THE BODY OF CHRIST AND SATAN HATH NO POWER OVER ME. FOR I OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD.” (1 Cor. 12:27 and Romans 12:21) “I WILL FEAR NO EVIL FOR THOU ART WITH ME LORD, YOUR WORD AND YOUR SPIRIT, THEY COMFORT ME.” (Psalm 23:4) “I AM FAR FROM OPPRESSION, AND FEAR DOES NOT COME NEAR ME.” (Isaiah 54:14) “NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER, FOR MY RIGHTEOUSNESS IS OF THE LORD. BUT WHATEVER I DO WILL PROSPER FOR I’M LIKE A TREE THAT’S PLANTED BY THE RIVERS OF WATER.” (Isaiah 54:17 and Psalm 1:3) “NO EVIL WILL BEFALL ME NEITHER SHALL ANY PLAGUE COME NIGH MY DWELLING FOR THE LORD HAS GIVEN HIS ANGELS CHARGE OVER ME AND THEY KEEP ME IN ALL MY WAYS, AND IN MY PATHWAY IS LIFE AND THERE IS NO DEATH.” (Psalm 91:10-11 and Proverbs 12:28) Sincerely Yours, Gene McGuire Please visit my Wisdom Blog by clicking below:www.wisdom4u.wordpress.com
