Declaring God’s Word

Why do we declare the Word of God as faith declarations over our life? It is because, “Death and
life is in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or
life]” (Prov. 18:21). Our thoughts, words and actions powerfully affect our outcome in life. “As a
man thinks, so is he” (Prov. 23:7).

God spoke the world into existence with words. We are created in His image and given dominion
to rule in the earth. As God’s people, kings and priests, we still have the choice to choose blessings
or curses. The words we speak either build up or tear down; our thoughts and words can release
healing or sickness, death or life. We, as sons and daughters of our Heavenly King need to speak
life and come into alignment with what the Word says about ourselves, family and others.

If the secular world knows about “self fulfilling prophecy,” what about God’s people? This is what
the secular world says about the statements people make: “The self-fulfilling prophecy is a statement
that alters actions and therefore comes true. For example, a person stating “I’m probably going to have a lousy day,”
might alter his actions so that such a prediction is fulfilled by his actions. This may be an unconscious gesture. A
person who might espouse a self-fulfilling prophecy in a positive way “I’m going to have a great day” might act in
ways that will actually make this prediction true.”

If the secular world understands that our words make a difference, when will God’s people begin to become wiser
and begin to think and speak life and not death over themselves, family and circumstances?

Declarations of Faith You Can Declare Daily:

Declaration in Difficult Times

Father God, this day is holy unto you, I choose not to be grieved and depressed, for the joy of the
Lord is my strength and stronghold. For You are Jehovah Jireh, You supply all my needs according
to Your riches in glory. I choose to let go of all anxiety, worry and fear. I will make my requests
known to You. I confess that You keep me in perfect peace as I keep my mind stayed on You,
because I continually trust in You. By faith I put on the garment of praise and cast off the spirit of
heaviness. For it is You that gives me beauty for ashes; in You Dear Lord, I am refreshed and my
soul restored. In the mornings when I awake I choose to look to You alone, my total dependence is
in You. I believe that you direct my footsteps as I acknowledge You in all my ways. As I trust in
you, abundant life is released; beauty for ashes and the oil of joy for mourning. Each morning that
I awake I will declare this is a day You have made and I will rejoice in it! For you awaken me
morning by morning and You awaken me to hear as the learned. Thank you Father, for by faith I
declare my full trust is in You, for you watch over your Word to perform it.

Declaration for Wisdom, Understanding, Godliness, Endurance

Father God, by faith I receive Your impartation of knowledge, your will in all spiritual wisdom,
understanding and discernment; it is only You Lord that grants me the ability to walk (live and
conduct myself) in a manner worthy of You; I choose this day and each day of my life to present
my body to you as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to you; I choose not to be conformed to
this world, but transformed by the renewing of my mind; it is my desire to please You Lord in all
things, for it is You Who causes me to be fruitful in every good work; as I trust in You and do not
lean to my own understanding, You direct my paths; I choose to humble myself and I believe that
You lead me in what is right and You teach me your way; As I dedicate my life to You, in times of
difficulties, Your strength, might and power is what upholds me. As I wait upon You Lord, thank
You for renewing my strength; causing me to mount up with wings as eagles; for I will run and not
be weary; and I will walk and not faint.
