The Powerful Life

February 18, 2018

I confess everything that was written in the past was written to teach me, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures I might have hope. I declare the God of hope fills me with all joy and peace, as I trust in Him. God sends forth His word and I am healed and delivered from destruction. Because I believe in the name of Jesus, demons will be cast out, I will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover. I have called upon the name of the Lord therefore; my household and I will be saved. I am confident the Lord heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. For great is my Lord and mighty in power; His understanding has no limits.

The Rested Life

February 11, 2018

I choose to live a holy and godly life as I look forward to the day of God and to His coming. Because my citizenship is in heaven, I eagerly wait for the power of Jesus to bring everything under His control as He transforms my body into His likeness. I declare that the treasures I store will be stored in heaven, for that is where my heart is. I have a dwelling in heaven built by God, it’s an eternal house not built by human hands. I declare that my heart will not be troubled; my trust is in Jesus Christ. For there are many rooms in my Fathers house and Jesus has gone ahead to prepare my place. I am confident Jesus is coming back for me to take me to dwell with Him there.

The Victorious Life

February 4, 2018

Today I choose to hold fast to the word of God, that I may be able, by sound doctrine, both exhort and convict those who contradict truth. I declare that I am strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. I put on the full armor of God, so that I can take my stand against the devil’s schemes. For the Lord is faithful and He will strengthen me and protect me from the evil one. I will submit myself to God, resist the devil and all his temptations and he will flee from my presence. I decree that in all things I am more than a conqueror through Jesus who loves me, for I am convinced that nothing will ever separate me from the love of God.

The Complete Life

January 28, 2018

Since I have been born again through the living and abiding word of God, I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live is by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. Because the Lord is a sun and shield who gives favor and honor, no good thing does He withhold from those whose walk is blameless. Therefore, I put no confidence in my flesh. I am a new creation in Christ, the old is gone. I am being transformed by the renewing of my mind through the washing of the Word of God. I keep my way pure, by living according to the Word of God, for I have hidden God’s word in my heart that I might not sin against Him.

1 Peter 1:23; 1 Co 3:23; Gal 2:20; Phil 3:3; 2 Cor 5:17; Rom 12:2; Eph 5:26; Ps 119:9,11

The Blessed Life

January 21, 2018

I declare the Word has become flesh and made His dwelling among us. Jesus is the Word of God and the Word is very near me; it’s in my mouth and in my heart so that I may obey it. I believe the Word of God is alive and active, for all Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for training me in righteousness. The Word of God is more precious than gold. By the words of God, I am warned and in keeping them, there is great reward. I choose to fix the Word of God in my heart and mind, while teaching them to my children so that the days of my life and the life of my children may be many in the land of the Lord. Because the Word of God is flawless and endures forever, blessed am I to live according to every Word that comes forth from the mouth of God.
