Confess the Word

Daily Devotional2 Minutes

As for God, His way is blameless; the word of the Lord is refined; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.—Psalm 18:30 NASB

David faced many problems and adversaries. He tried many solutions. But through these experiences, he learned that God’s ways were not just acceptable; they were perfect. This meant learning to trust God and realizing He had a plan for his life. God was guiding him. As long as he looked to Him, God would provide a shield.

David also realized that His promises were true. Not just some of them, but all of them.

This is a life-changing truth. Many people have read and heard God’s Word without realizing that there is a deeper dimension. In this dimension, we are willing to put aside everything else and base our lives on His Word. We don’t just know His promises, but we believe and act on them.

How do we do this? First, we must know the Word. We must read and study the Word. Even more important than just knowing His promises, we also need to confess them. Declare the Word to be true. Think of His thoughts.

Today, commit to declare God’s promises for you. Pray for prosperity and health. He wants to give you His wisdom (James 1:5). He wants you to experience “the riches of his glorious inheritance” and His “incomparably great power” (Ephesians 1:18–19). He will supply all your needs (Philippians 4:19).

Stand on His Word. Stand on His promises.
