2017 will be a year of unity in the church…
we are BETTER TOGETHER.
Ephesians 4:11-13 (NKJV)
11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
This will also be a year for transformation and a Greater Revelation of God's Grace in our church andthe communities surrounding us!
I declare the Perfect Will of God over my life today and over my year in 2017! I declare that as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord (Joshua 24:15). My desires and passions are aligned with His desires and passions for me (Psalm 37:4), and I declare that nothing appeals to me, that would not appeal to Jesus (Galatians 5:16).
I know that without faith it's impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6), so I ask you Lord to strengthen my faith, and I affirm that I choose to trust in the Lord with all my heart today (Proverbs 3:5-6) and I walk according to the Spirit of Faith.
In 2017, I declare an open heaven over my life, in Jesus' Name! I am going to have my best year ever because
I am too blessed to be depressed;
I am too blessed to be stressed;
I'm too glad to be sad and
I'm too anointed to be disappointed.
I'm too cheerful to be fearful!
This year, I declare that I believe in the goodness of the Lord within every detail of my life (Psalm 27:13), and my family's life. I will walk according to the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus, and not according to the law of sin and death (Galatians 5:25). I choose to speak words of life and walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which I've been called (Proverbs 18:21).
I ask the Lord for your complete protection over my family today against accident, incident, injury, disease and illness, sexual, emotional, spiritual, physical and financial damage (Psalm 91:9-10). Lord Jesus, place a hedge of protection around myself and my family today from the schemes of the evil one and all demonic powers in Jesus' Mighty Name (2 Thessalonians 3:3).
I declare that according to the Word of God I am seated together with Christ in the heavenly realms, far above all principality and power, and as such I use my delegated power in the name of Jesus to silence and nullify any attack, plan or harassment of the enemy against me or my family's life today (Ephesians 2:6-7).
Circumstances are aligning themselves in my favor, because I'm walking in the anointing of the Spirit of Favor (Psalm 90:17). I anticipate meeting the person or group of people who are willing to use their anointing, power, their wealth and influence to help me achieve my dreams. All day long, people will go out of their way to help me (Psalm 84:11).
I am healthy, physically fit, spiritually, emotionally and intellectually equipped. As I walk in the Spirit, the blood of Jesus cleanses me from my transgressions, and heals me from any diseases lurking in my body (Psalm 103:2-4). As I encourage myself in the Lord, I take on an attitude of gratitude today. I take on courage, and though I have weaknesses, God's strength is manifest and evident in my life today (Joshua 1:9).
I have wisdom far beyond my years (Psalm 119:99-100). I am an extraordinary person with incredible abilities that I will use to add value to other's lives because I know that in helping others reach their dreams I will automatically reach my own.
I will attempt to add great value to someone's life everyday (Mark 10:42-45). I will show compassion to those in need. I will give strength to the weak and inspiration to the weary. I will walk in Discernment from the Holy Spirit, and I hear His voice as He guides my life decisions.
I am faithful in little things, managing every resource God has entrusted me with, so I can rule over much and give whenever and wherever I see a need (Luke 16:10). The blessing of the Lord enriches my life and He adds no sorrow with it. He is blessing me exceedingly, abundantly above all that I could think or imagine (Ephesians 3:20).
I am experiencing great victories, supernatural turnarounds and miraculous breakthroughs in the midst of great impossibilities (I Corinthians 15:57). I am an overcomer (Romans 8:37). When I speak to mountains they are removed! If my mountains can't be removed (Mark 11:23), I will develop and practice my mountain climbing skills.
I may experience a setback but setbacks are only setups for comebacks. Setbacks pave the way for comebacks. If life dares to knock me down I will receive God's strength and perseverance to always get back up (1 Peter 5:7). I reject ever having the attitude of a victim – rather I always look for, and find, creative and resourceful solutions.
I commit to paying for my dreams so that I will not have to live with my nightmares (2 Chronicles 15:7). I do not procrastinate because procrastination leads to devastation. Procrastination leads to the assassination of my destiny. So, I act now. I don’t put off for tomorrow what I can do today! I am a doer (Proverbs 16:3). I get results that last.
I now release the champion that is inside of me.
I release the winner inside of me.
I am becoming the leader that people are looking for.
With the Lord as my guide, I choose to succeed today and everyday in 2017. My church will grow together in unity and I will be an instrument of God to build unity with my brothers and sisters in Christ. We are BETTER TOGETHER and THIS WILL BE MY BEST YEAR EVER!
