Trials and life’s challenges are to be expected but they are not sent to kill you or weaken you; rather they are merely present to build you up and strengthen you. When you are faced with issues do not get caught up in the now moment with a pity party, instead rise up in the authority that God has given you. Open up your mouth and declare the word of God over your situation. The Word is powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword – it produces life and not death, it revives hope and it brings dreams to life. Proverbs 30: 5 says, “Every word of God [is] pure: he [is] a shield unto them that put their trust in him.” The word spoken by people will sometimes fail you but God’s word is true and faithful and it will never betray your trust or deceive you.
Making declarations can cause your circumstances to change but when you sit down and complain you give the enemy more ammunition to attack you. Walking in the authority that God has given you will unlock hidden potentials and challenge you to be the best. The spirit of hopelessness does not thrive when confidence in the authority you have been given is displayed. As you embark upon your daily journey look up to God your Helper to see you through all things. Isaiah 40:8 says, “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.” Utilize the word of God to paralyze the enemy and cripple up his plans.
God’s word leads to happiness and not sadness; it causes elevation to knock on your door and leads you on the path to success. The scripture in Isaiah 55: 11 states, “So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.” Avoid focusing on the negativity and God will work out what you think is a mess. He will clean you up, take you from the mess and established you and then settle you on a solid foundation.
Prayer: Father we pray today that you will activate the authority that you have granted your sons and daughters. Father lift us up and breathe upon us with your grace and your favor, line us up Father to walk boldly in the things that you have destined for us to do. Help us to not focus on facial expressions but to move forward into the things you have prepared for us in Jesus name. AMEN!
