Declaration of Faith: Christ, Himself is my peace. He has broken every barrier and he has removed dividing walls between me and his peace for me (Ephesians 2:14 NAS). Henceforth I will live in peace and I will be at peace with all men.
There’s a really good reason why we speak the word of God over ourselves. It’s because scriptural declaration helps us to connect with God’s promises for our lives. They remind us of what God has said about a particular situation in the Bible and they enable us to connect with the power in the word to solve any problem. The more we speak out loud these biblical declarations the more confident we become in God’s plans for our lives, and the more we declare the words the more they help us to memorise scriptures and align us with God’s will for our lives. Speaking the word over ourselves helps to refocus our minds on things that really matter to God and it releases God’s blessings over our lives.

In his own words, Jesus said; “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross, and follow me.” (Matthew 16:24). This is the cross we carry for going against old beliefs and clinging on to a new belief in God. It is the cross of giving up on practising religion and swapping it for a true relationship with God. Carrying the cross means fighting against the lust of the flesh, lust of the eye and the pride of life for an entirely new life in Christ Jesus and this cross always attracts persecution of some form from the kingdom of darkness. It is the small price we all pay to follow the truth, the way and the life. Continue reading “Biblical Declarations for the Persecuted Christians”
Negative experiences in life do cause Christians to suffer low self-esteem. Dealing with trauma, loss – loss of a child, loss of a job, loss of a family, negative thought patterns, previous bad choices, unrealistic goals, body image are a few of those negative experiences. This may be harder even on matured Christians. You may begin to wander and wonder; has God forgotten about me? You may even begin to ask God some questions, God why? Why did this happen to me? Why me and not somebody else? etc. Continue reading “Combat Low Self-Esteem”
