10 Daily Bible Declarations to Speak Over Yourself in August
Declarations of Faith: I am coming into a newness of life like never before. God is turning tides and situations around for my good. What was difficult for me before will become easy. This month I will reach new heights I have never climbed before. I will aim high and achieve my goals. I believe God for the impossible and he will cause everything to work together in my favour. I believe it and God settles it.
Truth Be Told
You may not believe it but the month of August signifies a newness of life. It’s the month you’ll see new life blooming, the season changing, old things dying and fresh air blowing on all humankind. It happens like a computer that refreshes at the click of a button and all life refreshes at the command of God. You can probably smell it in the air right now. This is a new season of God’s goodness and he is bringing restoration your way and also refreshing your soul.
You may have seen a lot of heartbreak and grief around the world thus far but your case is different as a child of God in this world. God has your back and he’s too faithful to let you remain in an unpleasant situation. The Lord is saying to you, “Forget what happened before. Do not think about the past. Look at the new thing I am going to do. It is already happening. Don’t you see it? I will make a road in the desert. I will make rivers in the desert (Isaiah 43), it is time to move into your new. This is the time for restoration. Start to dream for new things, aim higher and trust God deeper. You will regain those things you have lost if you will only believe that God will fulfill His promises for your life.
The future may look bleak and darkness may cover the earth with the loss of loved ones, sicknesses and diseases, but there is hope for those who trust in God. Tomorrow will be better. There’s a newness coming to your life in August, and there’s a refreshing springing forth in your path. God will give to you a full restoration of time lost in previous months. You only need to key into daily prayers and daily declarations for your full recovery.
Scriptural Declaration of Faith to Speak over Yourself Regularly
Declaration of Faith: Christ is with me at all times and he guards my heart with the peace that transcends all understanding. He keeps my mind at rest in all situations (Philippians 4:7) and I do not need to worry or be anxious about my future. I am at peace in my own home and I am at peace with my neighbours. I am at peace when I go out and I am at peace when I come in. I am grateful to God for the peace of God in my life and I will extend it to others as God gives me grace.
When you speak out loud the peace of God that surpasses all understanding over yourself daily, it helps you to fight against the arrows of personal doubt, negative words spoken against you, worries and fear that you may encounter in the world. ourselves, we give the devil and his cohorts the chance to kill, steal and destroy our identity in Christ, and then we fall short of God’s best for our lives. Although we live in the world, we are not of the world, and we ought not to follow the crowd in engaging in negative talks. It doesn’t add good things from us, instead it destroys God’s plan for our lives. The trials we often perceive as the reality is actually a false perception from the enemy.
Imagine going for a job interview but you don’t proceed to the next stage of the interview for any reason. Does that make you lazy, dumb or stupid? No, it does not. That rejection experience simply exposes you to a better way of performing in the next job interview. Let’s not allow the enemy to make us believe otherwise.
I am believing that God will turn around this period for your good. I have also been listening to Jonathan McReynolds prayer song and has been a real blessing to friends, I thought I’d share it with you too. It is so powerful and so right for this season and I’m praying it for you. Please, join me and let’s pray together.
10 Biblical Declarations to Encourage and Strengthen the Persecuted Christians
Declaration of faith: I am fighting the good fight of faith with Christ and I will win this battle with him on my side (1 Timothy 6:12).
I remember getting teary-eyed at the hearing of the fate of the persecuted Christians in various countries. I thought of their courage and the boldness they show in the face of adversity. Their lives couldn’t have been far from being different from mine, yet they make a stand for Jesus, even if it leads to death or imprisonment. There are at least over 300 million Christians in this situation, and they go through gruesome persecution with little or no intervention from their neighbours. Their faith in Christ in countries such as Afghanistan, North Korea, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Burkina Faso and, in my birth country, Nigeria means facing being stripped and beaten, isolation and rejection from loved ones, death by a fire while the service is going on in church on a Sunday or life imprisonment, and this keeps increasing every year.
Pray the promises: I thank you, Father, for the gift of prayer and for the grace to approach your throne of mercy. I thank you for you are always ready to hear prayers of the saints. May your will be done as we pray together today. May we experience your love, peace, unity and harmony as we seek your face. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
If you have ever been a fan of acronyms while growing up, you’ll know that they can help you to remember some arduous information you don’t understand, yet you need them to pass your A-levels in secondary school. The Lord’s prayer works similarly. It gives you a model to follow. It’s a guide to use when in communion with the Father. It’s the go-to formula to use when unsure of what to pray and how to pray. It is not to be chanted verbatim, but we can use it to help us pray effectively. It is the simplest yet the most potent form of prayer model to use.
I thank you, Father, for this beautiful Sunday morning. I am awakening to new grace. I am living with your breath solely for this new phase. Your strength in this new age is replacing my weaknesses. With you by my side, I have new ideas for today. Heavenly Father, I thank you for this beautiful day.
We declare your praise, Emmanuel. Our God is with us. You are welcome here. Christ the King who reign on earth to give us victory. We applaud you here. Son of God who took away the sins of the world. We adore you this year and we bring our praise to you. We proclaim you as the King.
Majesty the king. We praise you for your holiness. Emmanuel who does all that is right. We declare your righteousness. Holy one who dwells in the light. We bow at your presence with reverence. Emmanuel! Our God with us! We declare your praise on earth.
Heavens applaud you and earth praise you. For the love you shared and for the blood that was shed. You are the bright morning star, the risen king who was scarred.
You are the compassionate love of God who was barred, banned and battered.
But through it all you endured to set humanity free. Emmanuel, Our God with us!
Lord Jesus help me to grow in the awareness that you are really my sustenance and nobody else.
Help me to continuously increase in the recognition that only you can make me become somebody in life.
Help me to rest in your strength as I realize that I am weak in my flesh.
I pray that I may be solely and wholly committed to my walk with you all the days of my life.

Biblical Declarations to Affirm Your Identity in Christ
Declaration of faith: I am who God says I am. I am the child of a great King. I have privileges of sonship with God. God approves me for greatness and I am becoming who He says I am. I am no longer live a life of mediocrity and I am staying focused on my God-given assignment so I can soar high like the eagles.
Have you ever been through a period of mistaken identity when people misjudged, misunderstood and made assumptions about who you are or who you should be? Our loved ones are sometimes guilty of this act. They make this mistake of thinking they know the real you and who you should become, and they are wrong about this, only God knows each person for who he created them to be. Jesus Christ experienced this with his parents too. Mary said to him, “Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you” to which Jesus answered them, saying, “did you not know I had to be in my Father’s house?“. Jesus knew his identity and the best way to deal with a mistaken identity is to affirm who you are to those who do not really know you.
When my flesh burn with desires for things of this world and my stomach churns with hunger for food to feed my flesh.
When my throat is dry and it thirst for the temporary waters of this world and my eyes lust for the worlds beauty with the power that it gives.
When my will is weak to fight off peer pressures and my strength is failing to flee from this world’s pleasure. Lord, I pray that your word will prevail in me.
Do not let my past dictate my future.
Do not let my present life unfold with ungodly features.
Make my future align with your plans and purpose for me.
I give thanks to God in the highest.
Who delivered me from sadness and he gives me joy everlasting
He shifts my focus from trouble and he makes me a solution provider.
He forgave my sins and he gave me freedom to live in abundance.
He gave me victory in battle and turned my life around for the best.
I give thanks to God in the highest for all he has done for me.
I give thanks to God in the highest for he controls the affairs of man on earth. He sees all things and he knows all things.

I give thanks to God in the highest who sends his angels to fight my battles

I adore you Jesus, the lion of the Tribe of Judah. I admire your love for others, my big brother. I love the way you look out for me and watch over me I love your strong arms of protection you wrap around me I love your big shoulders upon which I lean on to cry You have a heart of gold filled with compassion for the lost.

I have had a few episodes of depression in my life and each time I have prevailed with God on my side. stronger mentally and spiritually with God on my side. One thing is certain when you fight depression with God, you come out from under that dark and heavy cloud of depression and you will find thepeace from God that surpasses all understanding. You will have a new drive for life, a new drive for your faith and even a drive to help others. It is World mental health day and I am using this platform to encourage anybody out there who is suffering from depression.
I praise you Heavenly Father for your merciful and forgiving nature, You do not forsake nor cast away in our weaknesses or in strength, It is not in your nature to condemn, shun or disown in our lowliest state, In the darkest moment, you are there. You do not turn over your children to the will of their enemies Neither do you make your loved ones a prey for the devil.
It takes courage and a bold step of faith when you turn your back on old ways of living life, choose to confess your sins,repent from your sins, and accept Jesus Christ openly as your Lord and Saviour till eternity comes. Nobody can do these things of their own accord except for those whose eyes have been opened and given the revelation that Jesus Christ is indeed the Lord, the redeemer of all sinners and the giver of life.
Staying in faith can be quite a struggle for new Christians. Sometimes we can be easily swayed with words that make us turn our backs on God. Other times we are faced with so much hardship that we run back to our old ways of living life and at other times, we are simply persecuted for turning our backs on religion and embracing a relationship with God. In all our struggle to staying faith in Christ however, backslide from our newly found faith in Christ. Begum Bilquis Sheikh was a new Christian who converted from Islam to Christianity and in her book, I dared to call him father, she narrated her story of family exclusions, community condemnations, death threats and several attempts to dissuade her from her newly found faith in Christ. Her journey to becoming a fully fledged Christian was not at all that smooth. Yet she persisted in her faith and she followed Christ with all her heart, her mind and with all her might. Had she not been convinced of her call to Christ, she would have crumbled under pressure and she would have lost her faith entirely. Continue reading “15 Bible Declarations for New Believers”→
Sin is awful and as a new Christian, you might find yourself falling back to old ways of doing things and reasoning. One of the ways to overcome sin is to speak the word of God over that situation until it transforms you and you are completely set free. The Bible says if anyone is in Christ, old things have passed away, all things have become new (2 Corinthians 5:17). This means that you can let go of the past and you can assume your new position in Christ. Everything has been made new. The Bible also says that anybody who believes in Christ overcomes the world (1 John 5:4), you are an overcomer through Christ. Continue reading “Bible Declaration to Overcome Sin”→
Jesus I believe in you is my salvation.
I Believe you set free from bondage and addictions.
I Believe there is no condemnation from you Jesus but love.
Jesus I believe you break the bondage of sin over me and with your grace, I will sin no more.
Jesus I believe in you!
I will no longer trust in my own strength or rely on my understanding nor my good deeds to save me.
I do not believe any other god can save me but you, Jesus Christ.
My friends or family cannot save me and neither can my government save me nor my wealth can save me.
My talent, gifts or abilities cannot save me but only you Jesus can save me. I believe in you Jesus will save me.
To God, you are the sweet aroma of Christ. Through you, the world should have the experience of Christ so that the father may be glorified through the son. You carry a sweet fragrance of Christ in your heart and you ought to spread it to the uttermost part of the earth, allow your aroma to spread forth to the world. Anybody who walks through a beautifully scented garden never remains the same, their sense of smell is heightened as they breathe in the fragrance, their entire being accepts the fragrance, their face lits up, their mood changes and they will most likely carry that scent to wherever they go. Your life should model this experience to the world. Continue reading “I Carry The Sweet Aroma of Christ.”→
Do you know who you are in Christ? Can you honestly accept the truth in God’s word about your true identity? God knows who you are and He calls you what He sees not what the world sees in you. Your life can never remain the same again when you agree with what God says in his word about you. Why not try changing your words from saying, “I don’t think I can make it”, to “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. Continue reading “Declare Your Identity in Christ”→

Day 1 – Declaring God’s blessings
I DECLARE God’s incredible blessings over my life. I will see an explosion of God’s goodness, a sudden widespread increase. I will experience the surpassing greatness of God’s favor.

Friends! these OMG games on Facebook are fun and quick personality quizzes that tells us who we are based on our current profile. We all want to know the answer to this, right? and it shows us some more answers to those pertinent questions on our minds; who hates or likes us from our contact list? which country should we live in based on our names? which career path to follow based on our facial analysis? and the list goes on.
The truth is that as fun, harmless and sometimes accurate these games are, they couldn’t be far from the truth on who God says we are in Christ.
We all have a favourite Psalm we pray with regularly. We do it because we know that when we pray the Psalms God answers. They’re his words and he’s bound by them. They’re his bonds and he does not go back on his words. Scripture says that “He watches over his words to fulfill it” (Jeremiah 1:12). When we bring his words back to him in prayer, he rises up to fulfill his promises. Continue reading “7 Powerful Psalms for Troubled Times”→
Declaration of faith: I have not been given me the spirit of fear, but I have been endowed with the power to overcome every obstacle, perfect love that conquers every hindrance and a sound mind to make the right decisions.
There is always one or two things to be afraid of in this world. There is the fear of death and the fear of people. The fear of death because nobody wants to die young. We all want to enjoy this life and spend eternity on earth rather than in heaven. We want to live forever if we have our ways unfortunately we do not hold the power to eternal life, Christ does and we must account for our lives when we’re eventually face to face with God after death. We’re also afraid of people for so many reasons because we have exerted our power to them. We believe that they can make or break us with their power while we think less of ourselves, even though we also have the same power as them.
We’re also afraid of past mistakes and its consequences in our lives or the fear of failure. We’re sometimes afraid of the unknown, afraid for the future and afraid of danger that looms around. If we’re not fearful of the danger in the day then we’re afraid of the harm in the night. There is always something we’re afraid of, but if we don’t face the fear head on and fight it with God’s word, there will always be a fear of something or someone that will control our lives forever and stand in the way of the fulfillment of God’s promises in our lives.
Haven’t you heard it that there are at least 365 fear nots in the Bible? One scripture verse for each day of the year will help you combat fear in any situation or circumstances. As for me and my household, we are facing this fear with God’s words and we are declaring faith-filled promises of God over our lives while also believing that we will win this battle for as long as we hold on to God’s word.
Fear has got nothing on you when Christ is your Lord and shield (Psalm 28:7). It cannot rest on you when your trust is in the good shepherd (John 10:11-18). Jesus shed His blood and laid down his life in exchange for our lives. Evil will not overtake us because Christ already subdued it for us on earth and we can have peace in the world (John 16:33). He is like Job who will do anything to protect his children from falling (Job 1:1-5). He is like Moses who is so passionate for the deliverance of the Israelite. Christ will not allow any of these diseases or coronavirus to touch your body neither will he allow them to come near your dwelling place.
