THE POWER OF CONFESSION
This is a new day for us. I do come in agreement with the confession:
We have a new covenant built on love, hope, and truth that cannot be broken with the Lord Christ Jesus.
I love the fact that Julia loves writing in the air now. I am grateful because I know that over time, it will spill over into other things of authorship. Thank you for sharing this.

Over 15 years ago I learned the power of confession. At Jubilee Christian Church in Mattapan, MA, each Sunday I heard Bishop Gideon Thompson say at the beginning of each sermon- “ This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be in glad in it. Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law…” On and on he would go with the same confession. I learned that confession and prayer goes hand in hand. Little did I know that years to come, once I left Boston and settled in Chicago that those moments would become a bedrock for faith. A faith that has held me to His truth in some of the hardest darkest times of my life. To this day I carry these words in my heart. In 2009, a year before I left Boston, the Lord gave me a vision and a confession of faith of my very own. I had little understanding of this vision, but now it is clearly understood and erected in the depths of my soul. As the world grows dark I see an invincible light emanating from a tent in which I dwell with the Lord. The quote I posted by James above is a part of this confession of faith. James and I both are under development. If you have been following this blog, you may perceive this and much more. What is being built is being constructed on a foundation that will not be shaken. A new ground that cannot be broken and will stay in place throughout eternity. There is so much more I could say however again I have learned the power to confess that which I know is real, that which is aligned with the author of Truth- El Emeth. May you experience an unshakable encounter with Him.
2 Corinthians 3:6, 9
He has enabled us to be ministers of his new covenant. This is a covenant not of written laws, but of the Spirit. The old written covenant ends in death; but under the new covenant, the Spirit gives life.
If the old way, which brings condemnation, was glorious, how much more glorious is a new way, which makes us right with God!
