Many Christians have not made a habit of this yet. Many of us lack the practical understanding and the know-how of making Confessions. Many also want to practice this but usually lack words. They do not know exactly what to say.
A confession is not only what one does in the presence of a priest when he/she has sinned. It’s not just asking God for forgiveness. A confession is a statement of truth about a person, a thing, a place or an incident.
When you make a confession you state a truth, a fact or a principle.
God has blessed us with all spiritual blessings (Eph1:3). God has deposited good things in us (Philemon 1:6). However, blessings will remain spiritual, and the good things will remain in us, until we bring them out through our mouths, in the form of confessions.
It is very unlikely that anybody on this earth will experience what they haven’t spoken.
How to make confessions
Hebrews 13:5-6 KJVS
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.  So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
The verses above show us how to make confessions. Whenever we read and study God’s word, thoughts are transferred from the word to us. These are the thoughts we have to voice. God says a thing and based on that we say things too.
When I read psalm 1:3 which says ‘whatsoever he doeth shall Prosper’ the thought that I will never be a failure again, came to me and I voiced it. Ever since I have been saying I will never fail again. God’s word generated a thought in me which translated into a confession on my lips.
The reason I will never fail again is not based on anything I’ve done but on the word, and that’s what true confession is. It is not bragging, but an attestation to the truth of the word.
Hebrews 13:15 KJV
By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
The expression “giving thanks” in English is “homologeo” in Greek.
Thayer’s Definition of that word is:
to say the same thing as another, i.e. to agree with, assent
not to refuse, to promise
not to deny
to confess, i.e. to admit or declare one’s self guilty of what one is accused of
to declare openly, speak out freely
to profess one’s self the worshiper of one,
to praise, to celebrate
The fruit of our lips is our confessions. We do not have to take this lightly at all. Voice God’s thoughts that Come to you as you study. Don’t keep silent
