Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”- John 7:37–38
Affirmation: The power of God will keep flowing as long as I am– Becoming a Vessel of God's Power
Do you want to be fit and ready for God to work through you? Then it's important to remain alert to the devil’s attempts to stop the flow of God’s power in your life. Confession is actually a great gift and a powerful weapon, too.
The Bible tells us what a “flowing” life looks like: “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control” (Galatians 5:22–23). Here's the simplest way to know whether you are flowing or stopped up:
Just listen in on your own conversations! Because “out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks” (Matthew 12:34).
Listen to the silent conversation that runs through your mind.
Do love, joy, and all those wonderful attributes characterize your thoughts and conversations? Or are you constantly finding fault with everyone and everything, while adamantly defending yourself?
Depending upon your answer, it may be time to create a practice of daily confession.
