1 John 1:9 - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
CONFESSION DOESN'T MEAN BRINGING UP MY PAST. IT MEANS AGREEING WITH GOD ABOUT WHAT HE SAYS TO ME AND ABOUT ME. WHATEVER I TRY TO JUSTIFY, I HAVE NOT REPENTED OF. WHATEVER I TRY TO EXPLAIN, I AM NOT SORRY FOR. WHEN I AGREE THAT GOD IS RIGHT, THAT IS CONFESSING.
1 Corinthians 4:1 - Let us be looked upon as ministering servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.
I CONFESS THAT I HAVE TAKEN MY PLACE IN GOD'S PLAN. THE ASSIGNMENT GOD HAS GIVEN ME PROBABLY WON'T BE ACHIEVED QUICKLY. IT WILL TAKE UNBELIEVABLE STRENGTH AND ENERGY TO MOVE THAT VISION FROM THE REALM OF DREAMS TO THE REALM OF REALITY.
BECAUSE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN ME, I HAVE THE STRENGTH.
Song of Solomon 1:10 - Your cheeks are lovely as a turtledove's; your neck as jewels.
THE CHEEKS REPRESENT BOTH THE INNER AND THE OUTER LIFE. HERE THEY ARE COMPARED TO THE BEAUTY OF A TURTLEDOVE. THE DOVE MARRIES FOR LIFE. IF THE DOVE'S PARTNER DIES, THE DOVE REMAINS SINGLE WITHOUT SEEKING ANOTHER MATE. IF YOU WERE EVER SEPARATED FROM YOUR GOD, YOU COULD FIND NO PLEASURE IN ANYONE OR ANYTHING ELSE.
