Confess - The 6th "C" in Claiming God's Promises
The sixth "C" for claiming God's promises is to line up the words of our mouths with what God has promised in His Word. When the promises of God do not seem to be manifesting and our circumstances appear to be contrary to everything that God has promised we must, more than ever, get a firm grip on our tongue and make it say only what God has said. We must firmly declare the Word of God over our circumstances rather than affirm the circumstances themselves, thus giving them the power over us.
The Good News Translation says, "We must continue to hold firmly to our declaration of faith. The one who made the promise is faithful." Adam Clarke says, “Thy faithfulness” means “That which binds thee to accomplish the promise made.” When God makes a promise He is then bound to it by the fact that He is faithful. His faithfulness leaves him with no choice but to accomplish what he has promised. We must keep this characteristic of God in mind in trying and difficult situations that look contrary to what He has promised. Keep saying what God has promised to do and you will see the situation changed for His glory.
