Have you ever wondered why it is very important to have an initiation meeting or party when one has to join an occult group? Do you realize one must say certain things and after that you belong?
Do you know in that same way, when you want to give your life to Christ or join Islam, you must say after the person converting you some certain words? Have you ever wondered how important what we say affects our lives, goals and aspirations? It’s also in that way some professional bodies (for example Medical Doctors) take ‘oath’ just after graduation to perform their duties in good accordance. This is why POSITIVE CONFESSION is important. The power of life and death lies in the tongue; and if you truly want to progress and see your life turn around for good, you must cultivate the habit of positive confession, saying positive things about everything that concerns you.
Why do you think most motivational speakers ask you to write your goals down and paste it somewhere you can see it every morning or every day? It’s a conscious step to always remind you and make you act towards achieving them, even unconsciously. That’s what positive confession does; you send those words out and instill the universe to act, to create solutions accordingly. That’s why it is also very important to pray. Prayer is our supplication to God to bring a positive change into our lives-“So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it”.
Many years ago, after reading some very good books such as Your Best Life Now by Joel Osteen, Your Life by Design by Todd Duncan, Why You Act the Way You Do by Tim Lahaye, ETC, I realized that most of the work is in my hands if I really want to be successful. And then I became more conscious of the things I say, do and the thoughts that come to my mind. Only if you know how strong our thought influences our lives, you will never get to entertain negative thoughts- this has been my slogan for a very long time.
Positive confession comes with believe, and believe drives action. You can’t just wake up every morning and be saying I am great, I am blessed, and then you go back to sleep, NO! That greatness and blessings you desire will get you out of bed and make you thrive towards it. As a matter of fact, it influences the kind of music you listen to, the movies you see, what you read, the friends you hang around with or whatever thing you spend your time doing. Positive confessions make your mind thirst and hunger for all you need to succeed, and that will propel you to action. What you see and/or hear over time goes a long way in sharpening your life, for this reason, you must be conscious of the life you’re living and the impact you want to make. Try to always see things from the ‘half full’ point of view. Speak things into existence.
Confront whatever that seems like a challenge to you with positive words- “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Say it like you mean it, walk through it like it doesn’t hurt and come out stronger than you were. Position confession is a strong weapon that sharpens our lives meaningfully.
From this very minute, I oblige you to always say positive things to yourself, your children and every situation around you. No wonder the bible says ‘let the weak say I am strong’. Speak into the air, and watch the universe take that command and work accordingly. You will definitely see results. There’s power in the tongue, why not use it to better your life?
My Confession- “In every corner of the world, they will hear of my name Oluwafisayo Ajisola-Borokinni for good; I am the light and the salt of this world and I will continuously be a blessing to my generation and generations yet unborn; The world will standstill to hear me talk; God’s glory will continuously shine upon my life; I am an instrument for greatness; I am divinely blessed and favored; My going out and coming in is blessed; God’s protection is upon me, my family and everyone reading this post right now”….. AMEN.
