Confession is good for the soul, but remember this…make sure they’re offering a listening EAR and not NOSINESS.
You don’t have to tell ALL of your business to confess your faults and be delivered. Some people need to be delivered from nosiness.
James 5:16 (KJV)
16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Some issues you can’t ignore. Doing so can cause irreparable harm or worse.
Because when you ignore the symptoms or lack thereof…
You let it grow…
Give it room, space and freedom to work…
The next thing you know it will be bigger and stronger than expected…
Wait a minute!
Now you see why it’s not always bad when PEOPLE are ignoring YOU.
On your job…
In your relationships…
You know where they aren’t taking you seriously.
Maybe that’s God’s way of giving you a path of least resistance.
Matthew 10:14 (NKJV)
14 And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet.
Have you ever had something unfortunate happen, gotten ‘bad’ news or lost something of value, and it didn’t bother you?
You felt you should be anxious or upset, but you just weren’t?
You tried to get upset, but you didn’t?
Maybe even tried to cry, but couldn’t.
Do you know why? It’s because you’ve been praying for peace, or someone has been praying for you.
Peace is one of God’s greatest promises…
Philippians 4:6-7 (NKJV)
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, WILL GUARD your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
God’s peace will literally guard and protect your heart and mind.
When God’s peace guards your heart and mind…worry, doubt, fear, anxiety and stress can’t get in, sometimes even if you try to force it in.
In spite of what’s going on in your life you have a sense of calmness and ease because you trust God. You may not see a solution or resolution, but you have peace that no one can even understand…not even you.
But, isn’t that what God promised in Philippians 4:7?
Stop TRYING to worry and enjoy your peace.
