Scripture Reading: Job 22:28
Yesterday, the Holy Spirit led us to appreciate the fact that “God is Awesome.” He is faithful, loving and hears the prayers of all who serve Him in spirit and in truth. One of the weapons Satan uses against believers is ‘Unbelief’. Many believers come to church, talk about the Lord, pray, but do not believe in Him. They do not believe because, first, they lack knowledge of who the Lord is. Secondly, they see themselves as unworthy and therefore not capable of obtaining any favour from God. Thirdly, they lack knowledge of the power in the spoken word of God, and who they are in Christ Jesus. These are actually the challenges facing many believers today. This also explains why some person’s prayers seem not to be answered. Hear St. Ambrose, “To be active in works and unfaithful in heart is like raising a beautiful and lofty building on an unusual foundation. The higher the building, the greater the fall. Without the support of faith, good works cannot stand.”Beloved in Christ Jesus, you are a new creation and old characters, behaviours and their weakness are passed away. You are a child of God and your lips carry the power of God. Our scriptural reference today agrees completely with the above: “Thou shall also decree a thing and it shall be established unto thee and the light shall be upon thy ways.”
Dear Friend, the Holy Spirit wants you to know today that there is power on your lips. Hear this: “A Sister testified of complete healing when she placed her hand on the part of her body that was hurting her. This is in obedience to the instruction on prayer point number 7 of our reflection of Friday 24th July 2015. She pronounced healing upon herself and immediately she felt some burning sensation around that area of her body and that was the end of the ailment.”No wonder John Lafarge said thus: “For those who believe in God, no explanation is possible.” Listen to this, “On the day that the Lord gave the men of Israel victory over the Amorites, Joshua spoke to the Lord in the presence of the Israelites, he said (decreed), “Sun stand still over Gibeon; moon stop over Aijalon Valley.” The Sun and Moon obeyed Joshua’s decree. In 1 kings 17:1, Elijah decreed that “In the name of the Lord, the living God of Israel, whom I serve, I tell you that there will be no dew or rain for the next two or three years until I say so.” In 1 kings 19:41, he unlocked the heavens and rain came upon the earth. In 2 kings 4:16 Elisha said to the woman of Shunem, “By this time next year you will be holding a son in your arms.” Beloved, decree whatever you want and it shall be established. Today is a day of “declaration”. Decree whatever you want today in the name of the Lord and it shall be done. Infact, the light of God shall shine upon your way.
Beloved, let us pray!
- Take a worship song as you are led.
- According to Daniel 7:9, “Your throne O Lord is like a fiery fame.” And according to 1 kings 18:24, You are the God that answers prayers. I therefore decree as follows:
- That the morning takes hold of the ends of the earth and shake the wicked out of it (Jobs 38:12)
- That I will have dominion over the devil every day of my life in Jesus name (Ps 49:14)
- That your goodness and loving-kindness shall follow me and my family everyday in Jesus name (Ps. 143:8)
- That today, I have become terror to the kingdom of darkness and never again shall they dominate my life (Take seriously).
- That you O’ Lord reign over my life in Jesus name.
- Take the Prophetic Declaration for2016
Exercise: Take sometime today to meditate over the authority you have as a child of God
