The confession that works

**Happy New Year of Perfection to you all!**

As a Christian, I believe you are familiar with the term, “Confession”. Romans 10: 9- 10; that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation.

According to the bible scripture in the preceding paragraph, confession is the act of talking or proclaiming faith-driven words. Confession is a vital part of the Christian life. Many people are used to talking about their experiences; what has God said concerning that subject.

As Christians, it is essential we talk about what we want to experience and not what we see and how we feel. It does not matter how dire the situation may seem, let God be true and every man a liar.

As a young teenager, I always confessed I was not going to pay a dime towards my University degree. I would always say, my parents would never have to worry about my fees again. Time went by and I resumed college; my account summary was presented to me by my school’s bursar and I knew there was no way that amount was coming from my family.

I started asking around about scholarships and their requirements. People made a jest of me and some even advised me with so much concern about changing my school to another of lesser tuition. “You are an international student, you cannot get a full scholarship.”, many said.

But it did not matter to me because as far as I was concerned, God was all I needed. I went from office to another and the same story continued for about two weeks. My school then started to pressure me about my fees and even threatened to drop my schedule. And as an international student, that meant being out of status in the country. But, I kept proclaiming and confessing that I was not going to pay a dime out of pocket.

That fateful Friday that my schedule was to be dropped, one of the directors in my school who had given me an assurance that he would try to help me was not available. I remember leaving his office with tears rolling down my cheeks after his secretary told me he had was gone for the day.

I was at my reading table doing my class assignments that evening when the Holy Spirit told me to check my account summary. That made no sense to me so I continued with what I was doing. However, my spirit was restless and I could not concentrate. To satisfy my spirit so I could continue with what I had to do, I decided to check it.

What I saw had me reload the page about 3 times. I even called my aunt to check it out because I seemed to not understand what was going on with my account. She called me back saying, “I think someone paid your full tuition!”. I was stunned; “Who? When? How?”. These questions flooded my mind. I thought that was it before I realized the scholarship I never qualified for according to man’s standards and requirements was what I was awarded with. The highest scholarship my school only awarded the best of the best.

It does not matter what the doctors are saying, what your friends and family are saying; it does not matter if their intentions are genuine. Is that the outcome you want? If not, then what are you doing about it. It is easy to complain and cry about an issue. However, it is much easier, to proclaim your drawn-out outcome into existence.
