In the Bible, it is clear that the words we speak out of our mouths affect ourselves and our circumstances. God says, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue" (Proverbs 18:21).
Vocalizing God's Word and promises can cause them to be actualized in your life. If you speak sickness, death, hate, and poverty, that is usually what you will get. If you speak health, life, love, and prosperity, that is usually what you will get. I can't explain it. It's supernatural!
It is important that what you speak lines up with God's Word. The apostle Paul wrote, “According to what is written, 'I believed and therefore I spoke,' we also believe and therefore speak" (2 Corinthians 4:13).
Recently I ran across the below powerful “never again list” (anonymous author). Be blessed, and disregard anyone criticizing you for “confessing” God’s truths. Disregard critics who have not had a revelation on this subject..
__________________________________Never again will I confess "I can't," for “I can do everything through him who strengthens me" (Philippians 4:13).
Never again will I confess unmet needs or poverty, for “My God shall supply all (my) need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).
Never again will I confess fear, for "God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind" (II Timothy 1:7,).
Never again will I confess doubt or lack of faith, for "God has dealt to each one a measure of faith" (Romans 12:3).
Never again will I confess weakness, for "The Lord is the strength of my life" (Psalm 27:1). Also, "The joy of the Lord is your strength" (Nehemiah 8:10).
Never again will I confess supremacy of Satan over my life, for "He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world" (I John 4:4).
Never again will I confess defeat, for "Thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ" (2 Corinthians 2:14).

Never again will I confess worries and frustrations, because I am always "casting all (my) care upon Him, for He cares for (me)" (I Peter 5:7).
Never again will I confess bondage, for "where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty" (II Corinthians 3:17).
Never again will I confess condemnation, for "there is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus" (Romans 8:1).
