Category: Declarations

Imagine speaking good things into existence and changing your world. God spoke things into existence at creation(Genesis 1) and he wants you to do the same (Genesis 1:26). He has empowered you to be like him in all ramifications (Genesis 1:27-30). The Bible says that death and life are in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21). You hold the power to speak life or death into your world. Why not choose life? “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life so that you and your descendants might live! Deuteronomy 30:19

When you make a biblical declaration, you proclaim God’s absolute truth over your life thereby denying the power of the enemy over your life, you can then break free into God’s abundance for your life. Your words, your thoughts, and your world will begin to align with God’s thoughts and words when you make biblical declarations. Spiritually speaking, a demand is placed upon heaven to attend to your words and bring about God’s perfect will into your life.

Bible Declarations is also for spiritual growth. It builds up your faith in God. It propels and ushers you into God’s presence helping you to pray effectively. It refreshes your spirit, renews your mind and transforms your life. It gives you a clear understanding of God’s promises in the Bible to you and helps you to retain the word of God in your heart. God brings declarations to pass because He watches over His word to bring them to pass.

Scriptural Declarations of Salvation for Loved Ones

My brother was brought up with Christian values but he has since turned its back on those things that gave him life as a child. He is currently lost and I have been praying for his salvation for a while now. He may be labelled the black sheep of the family but I know with God’s mercy and pardon for his sins, it is only a matter of time before he gives his life to the Lord Jesus Christ.

I believe declarations of faith over this situation with prayers for his life will bring about the desired change. I believe that the more I declare the word of God concerning salvation over my brother’s body, soul, spirit and mind, the more my faith grows in the belief that God will save him.

I know that God does not want the death of sinners nor does he want them to go to hell or die in their sins. I am trusting God that like the prodigal son in the Bible (Luke 15:11-32) who lost his ways but traced his steps back to his father, I believe my brother will come back to Christ and accept him as his lord and saviour, I am trusting God to bring my brother home to him.

You may be in the same situation as me, been grieved over the salvation of your loved ones. You may have preached to them, shared the good news of Jesus Christ to them and perhaps prayed for them several times but you keep hitting hard rocks, do not give up on them. Let these declarations of faith take root in your heart to build up your faith as you believe God for them. You cannot save them but God can save them, therefore, allow the wind of God to carry these holy words of God that speak over them to reach them, to bring about the change of heart and transform their lives for the best.

9 Bible Declarations For Christians Waiting on God in Prayer

As a Christian, I do not expect to keep waiting on God in prayer yet keep meeting with cold silence from my heavenly father. If I ask my earthly father for a gift, he will most certainly find a way to give it to me without delay. Why then does God delay in responding to my prayers? What must I do if my patience is waning, negative emotions silently creeping in, worry, doubt and anxiety settling in? Does delayed answer to prayers mean God is not happy with me? Are there spiritual forces keeping my prayers at bay? has God not heard my prayers at all? What can I do whilst waiting on God for a response?

I saw a video once by R.Kelly titled world’s greatest. In this video, there was a young man trying to get into this great boxer’s dressing room but the bodyguard would not let the boy into the room. The boy insisted, ‘I want an autograph, I want an autograph’ until the great boxer heard the boy. He asked the bodyguard ‘what is the problem’? and the bodyguard explained that there was a boy at the door wanting an autograph. The great boxer then said, ‘let the boy in man’. The bodyguard allowed the boy into the room and the boy got what he wanted, he said his thanks and he left. Christians must be like that little boy. Never give up on praying and waiting on God for your reward will come at the appointed time.

When faced with a difficult marriage and a paralysed husband, Patricia Raybon rallied faithful family and friends in the church who prayed with her as she told the mountain to move. She persisted in the place of prayer until she got her victory. When Moses was desperate to win the battle with the Amalekites, he took it to the next level, he went up the mountain top in prayer. The more he prayed with lifted hands to God, the more the Israelites won the battle. When his hands were weak in prayer the Israelites lost the battle. But when Aaron and Hur realised what was happening, they joined Moses in prayer at the hilltop until the battle was won (Exodus 17:11). Battles can only be won in a place of prayer and you can have total victory when believers join you in prayers. So keep asking until you receive, Keep knocking and the door will be opened, keep searching for the truth and you will find (Matthew 7:7).

Raising hands in prayer might not be your style but kneeling down may be more comfortable for you. Getting friends to join you in prayer may also not be your cup of tea but you can retreat and have a heart to heart with God. Whatever makes you happy, stay in a place of prayer until you have your victory. The following Bible Declarations of faith will help build up your faith in prayer and help usher you into a place of prayer that brings victory.

9 Daily Bible Declarations to Help New Christians Develop a Prayerful Lifestyle.

A prayerful lifestyle is not exactly easy to develop as a new Christian. Not especially in this busy world and not with its four W’s and H process to abide by – Who to pray to, What to pray about, Where to pray, When to pray, How to pray, and Why pray at all? it might get confusing, mundane and difficult to carry out on a daily basis.

However, prayer is easy when we acknowledge that it is what fuels the Christian faith with a primary focus on God. Think of prayer as the fuel in that keeps the car running. Without fuel in a car, the engine does not run and you cannot use the car to your hearts content. However, if the car is filled with fuel, you can guarantee its smooth running and your confidence in it to take you to your destination stress free.

Prayer is the application of God’s truth in a Christian life. It is the master key to everything. Prayer keeps your life running in accordance with God’s standard. When you don’t pray you run the Christian race on empty and you open up yourself to the world’s devices but when you do pray your life is filled with the wonders of God.

The following Bible Declarations will help you develop a prayerful lifestyle

1).
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s (Psalm 103:1-5).

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

2)

I will call to God in prayer and he will answer me. He tells me great and hidden things that I do not know (Jeremiah 33:3).

I abide in Christ and Christ abide in me. Through him I receive answers to my prayers whenever I go to God the father in prayer.  I believe that Whatever ask for in the name of Jesus, it shall be done for me. (John 15:7).

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

4).

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

5)

I come to the father in humility and with a repentant heart I seek God’s face so that he might hear me from heaven and forgive my sin and heal my land (2 Chronicles 7:14). Therefore I confess my sins knowing fully well that he is faithful and just to forgive my sins and cleanse me from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9)

(1 Peter 5:7)

He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler
(Psalm 91:1-4)

January 3│I Declare I Have A New Heart and A New Spirit From The Lord

And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations.” Ezekiel 36:26-

Do you remember when you first fell in love? Did it not feel like having a new heart completely? It’s a feeling of unexplainable joy, a feeling of excitement, a feeling of newness. How about when you first gave your life to Jesus? did you not feel that something was different? At least you must have heard family and friends say to you that something is different about you, right? That is because you had a change of heart from the Lord.

Ezekiel 36:26-27
I declare a new heart and a new spirit from the Lord.

New beginnings always require a new heart. You need to forget the past, relish in the present and look forward to the future. Your perspective in life need to change. You must have a new attitude, a new behavior so that people can see a whole new you and they can testify about it.

With a new heart, you must let go of the past that has so finely defined you and you must embrace a new attitude, a new way of life and new perspectives on life. Suddenly you will become the wise old owl and people will look at you in utter amazement. Just because you have become a new person with a new heart, new hope, refined joy, defined strength, uncontrolled compassion and a whole lot of other good things accompanies you.

When Moses had an encounter with God through the burning bush (Exodus 3), he had a new heart. When the anointing oil touched Saul’s head, he received a new heart and he was no longer timid (1 Samuel 10). Saul turned Paul of Tarsus received a new heart and he turned away from persecuting the church, he himself became a disciple of Christ (Acts 9). This is the time to have a new heart from the Lord. This is the time to receive a changed heart that pleases God rather than a heart that pleases others or self.

There is no need to be stubborn about issues of the past anymore. There is no need holding on to things that you cannot control. Let go and let God. Let your heart run for the positive things in life, allow your mind the possibilities God has to offer. Do not succumb to the tactics of the enemy, his plan is to keep you in the past but God’s plan is to give you a blast. You deserve the best in life, do not let the enemy lock you in his ways.

You do not see clearly when you set yourself up for selfish things. A stubborn heart always ends up ruined. Do you remember King Pharaoh in the Bible? he hardened his heart and he refused to let the children of Israel go, his stubborn heart led him to his death. Give your heart to God, he already promised a new heart and a new spirit. All you have to do is to declare it and receive a new spirit from the Lord, and he will help you in life.

Make a Declaration of Faith

I declare I have a new heart and a new spirit from the Lord. I am done being stubborn. I am done trying to prove a point. I am ready to do God’s will. I yield my heart unto the Lord, I surrender my spirit to the Lord. I will follow his decrees and I will be careful to obey his regulations. This is my declaration.

Say Out Loud Jesus I Believe

I believe in Jesus and I am saved.
I Believe in Jesus and I am set free
I Believe in Jesus and I am no longer condemned
I Believe in Jesus and I sin no more
Jesus I believe!

Some believe in their own strengths
Some believe in their wealth
Some believe in other gods
Some believe in their friends
Some believe in their families
Some believe in their governments
Some believe in their abilities

But all these can fail you
The only person who does not fail is Jesus.
He is steadfast in his love
He is faithful in his words
He is beautiful in his works

His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom
His name is powerful
He is the way maker, miracle worker and a promise keeper
He is the light in the darkness
He is the way, the truth and the life.

Anyone who believes in him will never remain the same again
Anyone who trusts in the name of Jesus will be saved
Anyone who relies in his words will never be let down
Would you believe in Jesus?

Assurance of Salvation Scriptural Declarations

There are moments in a Christian life when doubts set in and he needs an assurance of his salvation. Soon after he became a Christian in college, author C S Sprout wrote a book titled; Can I lose my salvation? he shared his experience where he was advised by an elderly woman to “drive a spiritual stake in the ground right now.” He needed to make sure his conversion was forever. You may not have received a sound advice like C S Sprout when you accepted Christ as your Lord and saviour but as time goes by, you may find life happen and you begin to wonder and ask yourself some serious questions; Am I a Christian? Is my salvation real?

Whenever you experience such fiery dart of the enemy, it is best to nip it in the bud before it grows out of hands. Whenever you begin to wonder whether your salvation is real and genuine, whether you are still in faith, still on the Christian journey, whether you have completely backslidden or whether you were even saved at all, be assured that you are under an attack and you may have opened the door for such fiery darts from the devil and his cohorts.

You might be at that stage where you are feeling guilty, fearful, doubtful and condemned by your actions, wondering as you wander in life, am I saved? How can I say that I am saved when I gave up on Jesus under pressure? How can I say that I am saved when I sold out for pleasure whilst under pressure instead of guarding my soul? My saint has been tampered with what now can I do?

Whenever you get to this stage of doubt in your faith, know that you are under an attack of the enemy against your faith in God. You may even be at the brink of backsliding and like Peter who denied Jesus three times in order to save his face, you too may have denied Christ at some stage in your Christian journey.

In that time when the enemy has sown the seeds of doubts and unbelief, in that time when you want to do the right thing but you find yourself doing the wrong things. In that time when you are fearful and doubtful of your belief in God and your true salvation. In that time of struggle with your salvation, in that time when you question your belief and faith in God, make a declaration of faith out loud.

Declaration of faith
Whatever you say often gets rooted in your heart. Continue to confess your faith and you will see a turn around in your belief.

I am saved by grace through Jesus Christ. Not by might nor by my power was I saved dbut by the grace of God. I believe with my heart that I am saved. God said it, I believe it and so it is.
……………………………………………………………………..

The Spirit of God bears witness with my spirit that I am saved and I have become a child of God.

……………………………………………………………………..
I am a new man in Christ Jesus, old things have passed away and all things have become new.
……………………………………………………………………..
I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate me from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus my Lord.
……………………………………………………………………..
I call on the name of Jesus and I am saved!
……………………………………………………………………..

Scriptures
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8
……………………………………………………………………..
The spirit itself BEARETH WITNESS with my spirit, that we are the children of God” (Romans 8:16).
…………………………………………………………………….
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)
……………………………………………………………………..
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Nothing can separate a child of God from their Father.Romans 8:38-39
……………………………………………………………………..
Let us also be secure in knowing that “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” Romans 10:13.

I Believe My Prayers Shall Be Answered.

#Jesus said when you ask, believe and you will receive. Say it out loud and believe it – ” I believe my #prayers shall be answered. Though it tarries, it will surely come to pass”.

You may have prayed yet still expectant. The bible says that the expectation of the righteous shall not be caught off. I am expecting a miracle for you and I believe that your expectations will not be caught off.

When God says something, it does not return to him void. God’s word does not return to him until it accomplishes its purpose. Jesus says ask and you shall receive. If you have asked, believe and you will receive. If you are yet to ask, its never too late to ask God for your heart desires. His ears are not deaf not to hear you, he is expecting you to approach the throne of grace. So approach God with faith in your heart, ask and believe that he has heard you.

If you are like me waiting on God for an answer to prayers, be encouraged and have faith.

Make a declaration of faith
I believe my prayerd shall be answered. Though it tarries, it will surely come to pass. My expectations shall not be caught off. I have asked and I will receive. This is my declaration.

answered prayers

Send your prayer requests and I will join my faith with yours in prayer.

7 Critical Things Jesus Did Just For You

Jesus did not go through agonising pain on the cross for no reason. He did not suffer rejection in the hands of those he cared for and loved for no just cause. His betrayal by the most trusted disciple was no child’s play. Jesus did it all for a reason in the season. He went through it all so that you might have abundant life.

Like a criminal he was harshly treated, beaten, spat upon, stripped naked, pierced, whipped with seventy lashes, condemned to death on the cross, so that you could be redeemed from the harsh consequences of sin and just so that you do not have to go through the same injustice he suffered on earth.

Jesus was pierced for your rebellion(transgression) – Adam and Eve surrendered their will to be tempted of the devil and thereby introduced sin to the world.(Romans 5:12) making us all sinners (Romans 3:23), even from our mothers womb (Psalm 51:5). Since the eyes of the Lord cannot see evil(Habakkuk 1:13) and He want to redeem mankind from sin (Titus 2:14), He gave his only begotten son (John 3:16), Jesus Christ to take away the sin of the world (John 1:29). So Jesus was beaten and tortured for your transgressions so that salvation might be made available to everyone, and in all of his sufferings he didn’t say a word.

Jesus carried your sicknesses and pains – Jesus took upon himself our infirmities and carried away our diseases (Matthew 8:17), so that we might be made whole (John 5:6). God intends for his children to live a healthy life just as a father would suffer for his children so that they do not have to go through the same suffering. Jesus was beaten up, crushed for the sins of many not because he brought it upon himself nor because he deserved the beaten, but because God ordained Christ to carry the sicknesses and diseases of sinners that they might partake of the healing process once they come into salvation the prophesy might be fulfilled (Matthew 8:17)(Hebrews 6:4), his body was broken for you and by his stripes, you were healed(1Cor.11:23,24).

Jesus was poor for your sake – He was looked down on and passed over because he took upon himself your poverty so that you might be rich in the spirit (2 Corinthians 8:9). He was meek and lowly (Mathew 11:29) so that you might inherit the kingdom (Matthew 5:3). Jesus died without a thought for his own welfare, just so that you might be a partaker of the kingdom of heaven.

Jesus was beaten bloody for the sins of the people – His body was broken and his blood was shed to make you a child of God (Matthew 26:28). The beatings made him unattractive. People looked on him and turned away because they thought he was a scum. The truth is, it was your ugliness and wickedness (our sins) he carried that disfigured him and made him unwanted in the society and through his bruises we get healed.

Jesus grieves over your sins – We’re all like sheep who’ve wandered off and gotten lost. We’ve all done our own thing, gone our own way. And God has piled all our sins, everything we’ve done wrong on him. Jesus is the good shepherd, the good shepherd will never allow his sheep to go astray and if any of the sheep goes astray, he leaves the ninety-nine behind to search for the lost sheep (Luke 15:1-7) and bring him back into the fold. Jesus looks out for everybody that his father put in his care except for the stubborn sons of perdition (John 17:12) accounts for everybod Jesus took the punishment of sins of the world, and that made us whole. He was grieved for the sins of the world, he was sorrowful for the lost soul (Hebrews 5:5-8)

Jesus died for the sins of the world (1 John 2:2) – Jesus died for the sins of the world. He laid down his life as a sacrifice to atone for your sins and my sins (1 John 3:16) (John 15:13) (John 10:18). There would have been bloodshed and eternal damnation had Christ not laid down his life for the payment of our sins. He loves us so much he was willing to pay the sacrifice for the atonement of our sins.

Jesus was buried with the wicked that you might rise up with him in righteousness – They threw him in a grave with a rich man, even though he’d never hurt a soul or said one word that wasn’t true. This was done so that we might rise up with him in righteousness at the end of time (1 Thessalonians 4:17)

Now, it’s up to you. Do you own your weaknesses and sorrows? Do you want to continue in your ways as though you’re okay, as though his death means nothing, and as though eternity doesn’t hang in the balance? You can confess your rebellion and sins, and trust him to forgive you, make you whole. PRAYER OF SALVATION
