“Confession is a powerful spiritual practice in our lives. However, when we hear or think about the word confession, we might have a negative reaction. Confession is not a negative word, a horrible experience, or meant to be a reminder of our failures. Confession is beautiful. … The Greek word is a compound term from ‘to speak’ and ‘the same.’ Therefore, confessing is agreeing with God that we sinned against Him and perhaps others” (Craig Conaway, “The Weapon of Confession,” 6, http://craigconaway.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/The-Weapon-ofConfession.pdf). This certainly does not mean that the cause for every trial, hardship, or suffering is a result of personal sin. However, when we seek God in difficult seasons and agree with him and his truth, we humble ourselves and submit to his rule and reign.
