Confession: ¬†When I said that I would do this blog, I¬†immediately had remorse, because never in my life have I ¬†kept a journal or have written a blog. ¬†Realizing that I need to be transparent before all of ¬†you, I began to panic. As I rely on God to feed me the words to place on this blog, it’s my hope that you’ll join me in this endevour and grow with me on this¬†journey.
Let’s talk declarations. ¬†It’s important that we speak God’s word over our lives instead of falling victim to ¬†the negative thoughts that sometimes come blurting ¬†out our mouths so naturally. ¬†Words have power and more power than we give them credit. My sister, Nancy Williford has been practicing speaking out declarations over her life for years. ¬†She’s a beautiful example of what God can do through speaking His words over your life.
Here is one of her declarations. ¬†It’s from Deuteronomy 28:1-13.
I declare today that I will diligently listen to Your voice Lord, my God. I am watchful to receive, experience, and thank You for all Your prophetically spoken words over me. You will set me on high above all nations. ¬†All these blessings have come upon me and are overtaking me as I listen and move as Your voice directs me. ¬†I am blessed in the city and I am blessed in my job! My children are blessed! ¬†My business is blessed! I am blessed with more than enough for myself and those I am called to serve. I am blessed when I come in and I’m blessed when I go out! You Lord cause my enemies who rise up against me to be defeated before my face; they will come out against me one way and flee before me seven ways!
You Lord have prophetically spoken a blessing upon me in my bank¬†accounts¬†and in all that I undertake! You bless me in the land which You have given me. You Lord, have established me as holy unto Yourself as You¬†have¬†sworn to me. I receive, keep and cling to Your prophetically spoken word and walk as You direct me. ¬†All the people of the earth shall see that I am called by Your name and live in Your presence and they shall be afraid of harming me.
You Lord have made me to have a surplus of prosperity, through the fruit of my body, my business and the land You have given me.
You have opened up Your good treasury. ¬†The heavens give rain to me in season to bless the work of my hands. I lend to many but I shall not borrow.
You Lord make me the head and not the tail; I am above only and not beneath as I heed Your prophetically spoken words over me and I am watchful to move as you direct.
