Just as genuine faith produces works, which is the point of the book of James, it also produces confession. One will always speak that which fills his heart, thus the Bible says, “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” The word confess means to say the same thing, or in this case, to say the same thing God says. God created all things by His word, all things are presently upheld by His word, and when this age is brought to an end, it will be by His word. He created man in His image, after His likeness, therefore, our words are extremely powerful. They are more powerful than most of us ever realize. Not only should we be careful what we say, but we should be diligent to say what God says about every situation of life.
