Topic: What Do You Confess In Times Of Trouble
Text: Proverbs 18:21
Most times, we are very careless or carefree with our tongues. We say so many things without recourse and thereafter, we begin to regret our utterances. This is not a good attribute or character of a true Christian. Any Christian who cannot tame his/her tongue and moderate his/her actions is not worthy to answer a Christian. Jesus Christ showed us examples to follow. When He was accused falsely, He didn’t open His mouth. This should be the character of a Christian. We should emulate that. It is my prayer that God will help us in that area in Jesus name.
Our text says that the power of life and death is in the tongue. That means we can speak something to life and command something to die. It also holds that what we confess at any given time invariably affect us. Unfortunately, when some people are in distress, trouble or sick, they tend to forget the power of God and they begin to confess negatively. This also goes a long way to affecting their spiritual and physical life.
Our confession in time of trouble, sickness or crises should be to speak about what God can do and not to speak fear, danger or regret. I have acted like that severally. After the heart operation and second kidney transplant surgery, I came back, hard at hearing. This affected my ministry that I started questioning why I was still alive but today, I have so many reasons to be alive. Our God is a God of all possibilities. He can still use you despite our weaknesses. Remember the case of Paul and his eye problem. He can do far above what we can imagine. Please keep trusting Him in that trouble you are currently going through and certainly, you will come out with testimony.
