Few of us realize that our confession imprisons us.  The right kind of confession will set us free.  It is not only our
thinking; it is our words, our conversation, that builds power or weakness into us.

Our words are the coins in the Kingdom of Faith.  Our words snare us and hold us in captivity or they set us free and
become powerful in the lives of others.  It is what we confess with our lips that really dominates our inner being.  We
unconsciously confess what we believe.  If we talk sickness, it is because we believe in sickness.  If we talk weakness
and failure, it is because we believe in weakness and failure.

It is surprising what faith people have in wrong things.  They firmly believe in cancer, ulcers of the stomach, tuberculosis
and other incurable diseases.  Their faith in that disease rises to the point where it utterly dominates them, rules them.  
They become absolute slaves.

They get the habit of confessing their weakness and their confession adds to the strength of their weakness.  They
confess their lack of faith and they are filled with doubts.  They confess their fear and they become more fearful.  They
confess their fear of disease and the disease grows under the confession.  They confess their lack and they build up a
sense of lack which gains the supremacy in their lives.

When we realize that we will never rise above our confession, we are getting to the place where God can really begin to
use us.

You confess that by His stripes you are healed; hold fast to your confession and no disease can stand before you.

Whether we realize it or not we are sowing words just as Jesus said in Luke 8:11, "The seed is the Word of God."  The
sower went forth to sow and the seed he was sowing was the Word of God.  This is the seed we should sow.  Others are
sowing Sense Knowledge seeds of fear and doubt.

It is when we confess the Word of God, declare with emphasis that "by His stripes I am healed" or "my
God supplies every need of mine" and hold fast to our confession that we see our deliverance.

Our words beget faith or doubt in others.

Revelation 12:11 declares, "And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their
testimony."  They overcame him with the Word of God that was in their testimony.  They conquered the devil with words.

Most of the sick that Jesus healed during His ministry were healed with words.  God created the universe with words:
faith-filled words.

Jesus said, "Thy faith has made thee whole."

He said to dead Lazarus, "Come forth."  His words raised the dead.

Satan is overcome by words, he is whipped by words.

Our lips become the means of transportation of God's deliverance from heaven to man's need here on earth.  We use
God's Word.  We whisper "In Jesus' Name, demon come out of him."  Jesus said, "In my Name ye shall cast out demons,
in my Name ye shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover."  All with words!
