Hold Fast Your Confession
“Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold
fast our confession” (Hebrews 4:14 NKJ).
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
What are you confessing over your life today? The Bible says that life and death are in the power of the tongue. If you go
around speaking doom and gloom, confessing that “Murphy’s law” always happens to you, then that’s
exactly what you’ll get. But when you allow the Word of God to direct your confessions, when you confess His blessing
and promises over your life, it opens the door for God to move on your behalf. That’s why it’s so important to
“hold fast” or maintain your confession of your faith in Him. That means you can’t go around confessing
blessing one minute and doom and gloom the next. That would be like trying to dig a hole by removing the dirt with one shovel
full, and then putting it right back in with the next. You won’t get anywhere! In the same way, we have to hold fast
our confession of faith in God and His goodness. Remember, He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. As you diligently
seek Him and hold fast your confession, you will rise up higher and see the victory and blessing the Lord has in store for
A Prayer for Today
Father in heaven, today I choose to speak words that glorify You. I choose to speak blessing over the people around me. Search
my heart and remove anything that would keep me from honoring You with my words, thoughts, and actions. In Jesus’ Name.
