Tell On It

Tell On It

“Confess your faults one to another.” Jas 5:16

It feels good to live without shame. That doesn’t mean you’ll never stumble, it just means that by God’s grace you’ll get back up. Do you remember when you had to get a “permission slip” to miss school? Some of us have given ourselves permission slips to be weak, because we’ve become weary in the fight. Yes, it’s a long fight, but you can win if you want to! Here’s one of the keys to victory: “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.” If you are struggling to break a habit that’s trying to break you, God never intended you to do it alone. Whatever your habit or struggle may be, the moment it comes—tell on it! When you do, it begins to lose its power. You say, “Tell who?” Someone who’s been through it, someone who’s compassionate, someone who’ll stand with you in prayer, someone who’ll hold you accountable, someone who’ll keep your confidence. The Bible says: “Pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! …Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves” (Ecc 4:10-12 NIV). Roman soldiers stood back-to-back, protecting each other when the attack was coming from different directions. So, who’s got your back? But a word of caution: confess your faults, not someone else’s! You can never be healed by confessing the faults of others. Confess your faults, and let God heal you. Today God wants to make you whole and set you free to enjoy His blessing. Will you let Him?
