Separation from Sin: Head to Heart Guide
Confession is much more than confessing sins. Most powerfully it is confessing truth. This is because confessing sins (and fully repenting of them) frees you from being dragged downwards by the weight of sin; confessing truth lifts your spirit higher as you lay hold of truths that come from heaven. The sky is not even the limit to how high truth can lift you!
The following scriptures are word pictures that describe the life of Jesus that is inside of us. Read and confess them as the truth of who you really are as a New Creation and what you are really like deep down.
Love is patient and is kind; love doesn't envy. Love doesn't brag, is not proud, doesn't behave itself inappropriately, doesn't seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; doesn't rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 WEB
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. Galatians 5:22-25 ESV
Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant,being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Philippians 2:5-8 ESV
