Confession and repentance might be described as the negative side of submission; this involves getting rid of everything which hinders God's control over our lives. Yielding to God might be described as the positive side... placing ourselves totally into the hands of God.
Many people are overly critical of themselves, they always speak negative things concerning their lives and that of their families, and though they may not realize it, they are cursing their future. Those words sink into their minds. And before long, they develop a defeated mentality, low self-esteem and diminished confidence. Worse yet, those negative mindsets can interfere with God’s plan for their lives.
