Someone once said, “The greatest weakness is to be conscious of none.” It would be nice to know the guy’s name so we could give him credit for helping us see why God has given us confession as a tool for spiritual growth. The Scriptures encourage honesst confession because it produces awesome results in the life of God’s man.
When God said to the apostle Paul, “My power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9), He was saying that when God’s man is at his most vulnerable place, that’s when God’s pwer flows most freely toward him. Confession puts us in that place.
- Do you want more of God’s power in your life?
- Do you want to deal Satan a right-hand straight to the jaw?
- Do you want people to trust you and be close to you?
- Do you want God to use you more?
Good. Then no secrets.
