“For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” – Romans 10:10, KJV
Confession is a good thing because when we tell the truth we let go of burdens and not have to think about hiding our secrets. Lying is a burden because you’re trying to cover one thing after another and then forgets the first lie. Imagine being in the interrogation room. You lie and then change stories over and over. No one will believe you until the truth comes out. Right? You may think you will get away with it but you will be held accountable for the private and public things you do on earth ( 1 Corinthians 4:5). It is why confessions are better. We confess to God with open heart and willing to be changed. It’s a stepping stone to being set free.
“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” – James 5:16, KJV
Prayer is a great way to talk to God and let it out to Him. Even though He knew already, still it pleases Him to hear you.
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” – 1 John 1:9, KJV
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” – John 8:32, KJV
