We Declare!

Posted by

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord Psalm 33:12

In this decade of PEY, the decade of the Mouth, let’s agree with God and echo His decrees. Let’s release our authority and extend our faith on the earth! Let’s use our mouths to release His will and dispel the chatter of the enemy!

WE DECREE!

America SHALL be saved! America is blessed because Jesus is Lord. We decree and declare that this nation is returning to its godly heritage, learning from past mistakes and returning to her first love, Jesus Christ.

We decree angels of every rank and division are moving among us to restore our nation, restore our cities, restore our communities and restore our families. We are grateful for the MERCY that our God has decreed over us and declare it is our new currency.

We plead the blood of Jesus over this nation from the North to the South and from the East to the West. From border to border and sea to shining sea.

We hear the sound of the church awake and alive in Christ! We hear the sound of prodigals returning! We hear the sound of peace ushered in. In response to these sounds we say AMEN and SO BE IT!

We declare brotherly love abounds as well as grace! We release the love that covers a multitude of sins. We pray for our leaders and call for every elected official, not aligned with the will of the Lord God Almighty to be removed in Jesus’ Name. We cancel and thwart every plot and plan of the evil one and declare again AMERICA SHALL BE SAVED!

Thankful for Freedom

I love Independence Day. I love what it stands for. I love this great nation that I am so blessed to live in. I thank God for America as I continue to have hope and anticipate the third great awakening!

I am thankful for all that America stands for. To quote The American Legion – “There is nothing wrong with America, that cannot be fixed with what is right with America.” – and to this I say AMEN!

I am grateful for the men and women who pioneered this land, who braved the odds and the elements, and escaped religious persecution, to found this nation on the principles of the Word of God.  I am thankful for the men and women – past and present – who serve and protect our country, especially those who have sacrificed their lives so that we might live and live free.

Today, we can look around us and see all that is wrong in our nation, OR we can change our perspective and employ Philippians 4:8 – “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.”

We can choose to think on the fact that we still live in the greatest nation on Earth – a nation where we still have the freedom to worship Jesus and share His gospel. America has taken the call to spread the Gospel seriously as we have taken it to the world in word and in deed. For this I am truly thankful. Don’t let current culture fool you, our nation, was built on biblical principles, and because of that, it became the greatest nation on earth.

As we celebrate our nation’s independence, let us remember who gave us this great land. Let’s give thanks for all that He is currently doing to turn this great nation around and get us back on course. Let’s lift our voices to heaven and exalt Jesus. As we lift up His name, He will draw others to Him. (John 12:32)

We have been given that same power and authority. We, too, can speak into the darkness and command light. Command life. Command prosperity and instruction. Command the light of Jehovah Himself to shine upon our nation. We can and must do that.

A friend of mine, Karen Hardin, recently shared something with me that she has been doing. After hearing her share it the third time, it finally dawned on me that it must be something God wanted me to do as well.

Karen told me that she had been reading the word of God out loud each day. Not only out loud, but outside. Knowing as the word of God is released into the atmosphere, things will change. The atmosphere will change, just as they did for God in Genesis 1:3.

A couple days ago, I began to follow her example. Bible in hand, I head to my porch. I read the word of God into the atmosphere. Out loud. Once I am done, I pray for a few moments. Asking God to allow the words we are speaking out loud and outside to change the atmosphere. To drive out the fear, anxiety, and chaos. To release peace and His light in our nation.

This morning after I finished speaking the word of God into the atmosphere I began to think. What if all of us did this daily? What kind of impact would that make? Would be begin to see the same magnitude of light that God saw that day? Would we begin to see a new beginning? A God-filled, anointed beginning?

There is great power in declaring the word of God. There is dynamic power in agreement.

Today, I invite you to join Karen and I in this endeavor. Take a few moments, read the word of God out loud, and outside. It doesn’t matter what you read, Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms. All of the word of God is powerful – just read!

Hebrews 11: 6 says; without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Jesus said many times… “your faith has made you well.” Again, we see faith as the key.

I realize some of you reading this have been disappointed. You have put your faith out there and feel like you were slapped in the face. You hesitate to believe again. However, we are faith people.

We believe God. We believe His word. Our only option is faith. Every single thing we read in the Bible about Abraham, Moses, David and Jesus is about faith. Faith in a faithful God.

Today I encourage you to build up your faith in this word for March. Grab hold of it, believe it with all your heart and run with it. March into your promises this month. Don’t look back at the disappointments, move forward. Advance. Progress. Remember in the book of Exodus, God said, “don’t sit there, get moving!” Let’s get moving in faith.

God has made us promises in His word concerning these challenging times.

My favorite promise is found in Deuteronomy 31:8; And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.

I can attest to this truth! No matter what we walk through, if we will continue to trust God, He will not leave our side. He will walk through it with us. Just as there was a fourth man in the fire with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, God walks with us in every challenging situation.

If we find we can’t take another step, He picks us up and carries us through. I love that about Him.

Which brings me to another wonderful promise. If God is with us, and He is, who and what can stand against us? (Romans 8:31)

There have been many times I would pray and ask God to deliver me from certain situations, most of the time, He did not. Most of the time, He simply walked me through it. Was this my preferred way? Absolutely not. But I have learned that I gained fruit and stability during those times that I couldn’t have gotten any other way.

It all comes down to trust.

Do you trust God in the storm? When you are sitting in the dark, with nothing but the sound of things blowing and crashing around you, do you still trust Him?

I am not saying it is easy, but He has made it possible. Trusting Him in the storm is the key.

If you choose to trust Him in the storm, it will be just like it was for me this morning. You will awake one day to a bright, sunny sky. The beauty of a new sunrise. The singing of birds. Then you will know you have made it through the storm.

I could testify of His faithfulness in storms for hours. He has walked with me through things I didn’t think I could survive. And most of the time, I walked alone, just Him and I. I did survive. Not only survive, but I learned to lean on Him and thrive during those seasons. Oh my! He is so very faithful. He is pure love manifested.

My friend, I don’t know what type of storm you find yourself in today, but this I do know. You can trust Him in the storm. It may rage around you, shouting to you. Don’t listen. Keep your eyes upon God, He will keep you in peace. Keep your ears tuned in to His voice, He will speak to you. Keep your heart set on Him – He will never leave you nor forsake you – and He will bring you out into an abundant place. You have His word on it. You will see the dawning of a new day…after the storm.

Philippians 2:14 tells us to do everything without complaining or questioning.

This I know. Faith obtains the promises of God. Complaining hinders the promises of God.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to give the devil any weapons to use against me. Therefore, I choose not to complain and murmur. I absolutely refuse.

Instead I choose to give God praise and thanksgiving regardless of what I see with my eyes. Regardless of what is going on around me. You can do the same. There is always something to be thankful for. Always.

It was murmuring and complaining that kept the children of Israel out of their Promised Land and it is what will keep us out of ours.

1 Corinthians 10:10 says; “And do not murmur, in unwarranted discontent, as some of them did—and were destroyed by the destroyer.” (Amplified)

Ephesians 4:27 tells us to give no place to the devil, or the destroyer as this scripture calls him. We give him place when we murmur and complain.

We are in a pivotal time. It is vital we do things to advance toward our promise. It is just as important that we don’t do things to hinder our blessings.

Today, make up your mind to refuse to complain. Refuse to give place to the devil. Refuse to give him something to work with.

Could it be that we are missing an important link when we pray and walk away instead of praying and listening for His voice?

John 10 declares; My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of My hand.

How can you tell if you are His sheep? If you hear His voice. Not if you pray daily, but if you hear His voice.

Prayer is a dialogue. It is a conversation between two people, not a speech by one person.

Don’t allow your prayer life to become a monologue, make sure it remains a dialogue between you and God. Call upon Him…He will answer you, just as the word of God says.

Take time to listen for His voice. Take time to listen for His answer to your prayer. Gods voice in response to your prayer is the most important part…listen for His response.

I keep hearing this word…uncertain…spoken daily. Maybe many are uncertain, but I, for one, remain certain that I will see the goodness of God in the land of the living. We will see the goodness of God in the land of the living AND in our life and family. Why am I so certain? Because that goodness already exists, and delivery time is fast approaching. We have His word on it. Do not let go of the promise. If He birthed it in you, He will bring it to pass. He is faithful and He will do it.

The One whom my soul loves.  Have you found Him?  If you have, hold tight and never let go.

And today, amongst the flowers and the candy, remember to let Him know how very much you love Him.  And how thankful you are for His word.

After you have blessed HIM today, be sure to be a blessing to someone else…let them know you love them…you appreciate them…that you care.

We love you Lord!  You ARE the One our soul loves…today we hold tight to your faithfulness and your unfailing love.

We declare!

There is a new move of the Spirit of God upon me today, and it’s bursting forth. Pressure is leaving and the new thing has begun.  My territory is expanding in a major way.  There are new realms of influence being added to the realm of my jurisdiction.

I am alert and listening for the whispers of the Holy Spirit; I purpose in my heart to follow and obey them. I am not fearful but boldly step out in faith knowing, as I follow His voice in obedience, I will see MAJOR demonstrations of His power.  God’s plan for me is BIG and I step into it today, in Jesus name.  Amen.
