Vision and Confession – Fola Daniel Adelesi

If you do not say what you see you may never see it in reality. The creator of the heaven and earth and the master of the universe kept speaking into existence the things that he saw in his mind. Over and over again the account of creation says that, “and God said…”

There is so much power in confession and one of the ways to bring your vision into reality is to keep speaking what you see. There will be reasons for you to doubt what you see but make sure your mouth does not say anything different from what you see in your mind. “Keep saying it, don’t stop talking it,” is what Pastor Chris Oyakhilome would say.

In 1996 when I got into high school I said to two of my friends that I was going to become the Senior Prefect in my final year but they laughed and scorned. In the year 2002 I became the Senior Prefect for 2002/2003 academic set. When I got into the university and I had the opportunity to represent the university in Nigeria International Model United Nations’ Conference I said in year 2006, “I am going to become the Secretary General for Model United Nations.” In December 2007 after the closing dinner for the annual conference I got a confirmation of my appointment as the Secretary General of Nigeria International Model United Nations’ Conference for year 2008.

When my colleagues where laughing at me I knew so well that what they thought didn’t matter as much as what I think about what I am saying so I did not care. It does not matter who does not believe what you are saying. What matters is if you as a person believe what you are saying to yourself. I was taking a training in World Class Compere Academy in March 2008 when the facilitator, Oladele Olunike said that statistics have told us 77% of self talk would be negative. With that consciousness we have to deliberately talk ourselves out of failure.

It is your responsibility to talk yourself out of failure. It is your responsibility to talk yourself out of poverty. It is your responsibility to talk yourself out of depression. It is your responsibility to talk yourself out of mediocrity. It is your responsibility to talk your way into success. It is your responsibility to talk your vision into reality. It is your responsibility to talk yourself into new levels. It is your responsibility to talk your adversaries into silence.

If you care so much about what people say and focus on that then you will have what they say as a reality not because it is the reality but because you refused to say what should be the reality. No matter how hard you prepare your preparation for your vision is not complete without your confession.

There is a force behind your confession that grants speed to your vision. It’s like driving a nail into the wood. Every hit of the hammer drives it in the more. As for your vision, every confession hastens the reality of that vision. We as human beings are products of words. Most of our values were formed based on what we heard so our present realities are products of yesterday’s confessions and tomorrow’s realities will be a product today’s confession. Keep confessing the vision.
