Confession vs Lie
Romans 4:17 "Call those things that be not, as though they were"
Exodus 15:26 “I am the Lord, who heals you.”
What does that mean?
Does that mean that if you are walking around with snot on your nose that you say "I am not sick?" NO
Does that mean that you tell everyone you have a car even though there is no physical manifestation of that car you are believing for? NO
It means that if something is not the way you want it to be, you confess that it will be the way God declared it should be. It is NOT saying that something that IS, isn't.
A confession is saying and agreeing with what God says. You take a scripture and you say and believe it because that is what God says.
A lie would be to try to convince someone that you have something now when you really don't have it yet. That's not faith
Let's take lack- you are in need of money:
Confession- But my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19)
Lie - I have so much money in the bank, I don't even know what to do with it!
So in this example, faith would write a check knowing that there is no money in the bank BUT keeping it in the drawer until the money is in the bank account, then mailing the check.
Lies and foolish actions would write the check and send it hoping that God puts the money in the bank to clear it. That is illegal and should not be done!
