Confused about Confessions

There are a lot of teachings about confessions that really confuse people. On one extreme, people are taught to always confess their sins, try to bring to memory all buried sins and confess. Another extreme is not to confess sins as all are already forgiven, just confess your wishes, dreams, desires…etc.
1) Confess our sins: When sinners come to Lord Jesus Christ, they are convicted of their sins. They should repent, confess their sins to receive forgiveness, become righteous and children of God. John asserts: “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (I John 1:9) As we live in a fallen world, there are temptations. All could commit sin especially by not fulfilling what we are supposed to do. James writes: “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.” (James 5:16)
2) Confession of faith: The Apostles creed and Nicene creed are used in churches for believers to confess their faith. It mainly indicates the right doctrines of the Scripture a believer should know, understand, and communicate. This helps believers to escape from false teachers and false prophets.
3) Confession of dreams? A new trend has come for confessions of desires, dreams and demands. Believers are encouraged to confess something like this: “I am a child of God. No sickness can near me. I will buy a new house worth… millions. I will have my own private jet. My children will be owners of companies…” The novelty seekers are taught by strange preachers to confess like this. They state that confession has power, and they will get it. This is dangerous. When people desire not knowing that God is Sovereign or His will, they could desire foolish things. Sadly, they think their confessions are more powerful than God Himself. Without knowing God’s purpose; desires could be selfish, self-serving, worldly and carnal.
Do I confess my sins and faith for the glory of God?
