Power Of Confession


(James 5:16) “Therefore, make it your habit to confess your sins to one another and to pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”

(Ecclesiastes 4:10-12) “If they stumble, the first will lift up his friend—but woe to anyone who is alone when he falls and there is no one to help him get up. Again, if two lie close together, they will keep warm, but how can only one stay warm? If someone attacks one of them, the two of them together will resist. Furthermore, the tri-braided cord is not soon broken.”



A sign of insecurity is not being able to admit one’s weaknesses, faults, or shortcomings. It takes someone who is mature and has nothing to lose or hide, to confess where they have failed. Sure we can all confess to a loving, compassionate, and forgiving God, but what about taking the chance of being vulnerable before fellow men? What if they use that against you someday? What if they share it with others who might judge you and look down on you? Now, this type of open confession takes someone who knows who they are in Christ.

Apparently, by confessing our faults to men, we start a healing process. It takes away a burden you might have been carrying for many years, makes you conscious of your accountability to them the next time you are weak and it might help others understand why you seem to stumble so often. However, be careful not to confess in order to make yourself the victim, or excuse your mistakes. Do it in order to consciously admit that you have a problem and that you want to improve in that area of your life and you need their help and understanding.

This level of trust, compassion, and understanding is a vital key for any marriage to work. By being afraid to open up to your spouse, you are only closing the doors for your own healing both emotionally and spiritually. If your spouse lacks the compassion needed to understand you, then ask the Holy Spirit to get involved and give them the patience needed while you fight through your problem. Don’t ever make the mistake of sharing the confessed faults with anyone else, as once that trust is broken, it is very hard to repair.

Ask God before you go around confessing your faults to everyone, as He knows who really cares for you and can help you in your weakness through prayer. If they are true believers and walking correctly in love, their prayers are powerful to help you overcome your faults. That is why it is so important to go to your Pastors or leaders in the church to ask them to help you fight this battle. By confessing your faults, you take away the power they have over you.


When we confess to God we are forgiven in the spiritual, when we confess to man we are healed in our emotions.
