31 Days of Hindsight: Day 12

Day 12 and Day 13 of our 31 Days of Hindsight go hand in hand.  Day 12 will contain 2 more DECLARATIONS and Day 13 will finish them up, in order to keep this quiver of “God arrows” all together.

*Check out days 9, 10 and 11 for the rest of the DECLARATIONS: Day 11 , Day 10 , Day 9

This hindsight journey is turning out to be an awesome rodeo for me and I hope it is for you as well.  I am seeing God’s faithfulness in the past, which encourages me in the present and gives me hope for the future!  I loved the picture above so much because of the “childlike” faith it represents, on a skateboard , looking back “Old Skool”, getting ready to roll!

May 2017 be a “New Skool” adventure, having learned from looking back to fearlessly forge ahead into the future!

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 12

I am not looking back too far today because I wanted to get the rest of last week logged on the blog in one place.  I will spend Day 12 and 13 writing out the remaining DECLARATIONS and sharing the related verses, in order to write them on my own heart, as well as give them to anyone else who wants these powerful weapons of warfare, in a war already won!

We are victorious in Christ and the enemy hates it when we remind him of that!

**Make today a DECLARATION OF DEPENDENCE DAY, dependent on the ONE who WON it all for us!

DECLARATION CLAIMING PURITY:

I have been crucified with Christ. I no longer gratify the cravings of my old sinful nature.  My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. My body may be weak, but my spirit is willing.  I am never tempted beyond what I can bear-God always provides a way out.  I flee youthful lusts. I resist the devil, and he must flee from me.  I have the mind of Christ. I will set before my eyes no vile thing.  I take captive every thought.  My thoughts are true, noble, right, and pure.  I am sober and alert, ready for any attack. My God arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. He who is in me is greater than he who is in the world.  When evil comes, I will stand my ground. I am a new creation-no more condemnation.

Christ has set me free! And by HIS blood, my hands are clean, my conscience is clear and my heart is pure.  And the pure in heart will see HIS face.

Lord, I want to see your face! I have only one desire: Your presence in my life. Show me Your glory!

Amen

DECLARATION OVER PRIDE AND GREED

I declare and proclaim this is the day to lay down my life.  I am of God and the devil has nothing on me. I will not serve two masters.  It’s no longer I that live, but Christ lives in me. If my Heavenly Father feeds the birds, He’ll take care of me. If He clothes the lilies, He’ll provide for me. If I seek His Kingdom, and His righteousness, all these things will be added to me. I have done nothing – absolutely nothing – to earn my salvation. Jesus, YOU paid the price for me to live and be free.  God, burn away my pride; consume my sin.  God resists the proud, so I resist pride! I renounce all greed, selfishness and selfish ambition, all boasting and envy!

Lord, purify my motives and my heart.  By God’s command I am blessed.  I am blessed in the city.  I am blessed in the country. My children are blessed. My relationships are blessed. I am blessed when I come in. I am blessed when I go out. I am the head and not the tail. Everything I put my hand to is blessed.  I embrace humility and put it on like a garment.  God’s power is made perfect in my weakness. I humble myself under God’s mighty hand. I empty myself now. I am a slave to God and a servant to people. Father, in the name of Jesus, take my life!

Amen
