Not by Whim or Emotion

PrayerWomanLookUpDecree (Job 22:28) is not determined by whim or emotion. They are those things that decide one thing one time under one set of circumstances or feelings but not under another. Decree involves comprehending a plan. (“You shall frame all your projects and purposes with much wisdom and resignation to the will of God” — Matthew Henry on Job 22:28)


Declare in Spite of it All

700-01185565Things you feel prompted of the Holy Spirit to declare may seem out of place or impossible in the face of present circumstances and contradiction. When you are in a season of shifting, those things you declare will not likely seem attainable until the shift is complete. When God’s hand is moving, you can’t predict the future by present defeats. Ask Abraham, Joseph, David. Declare in spite of circumstances. (Rom.10:8)


Declare in the Face of Contradictions

The word “declare” means: manifest, announce; making something known Declare1emphatically, openly or formally; to make known, sometimes in the face of actual or potential contradiction. The people of God are not on earth to just observe events but to make declarations in keeping with the character of our God, right in the face of those things that contradict the righteousness of God. We will not keep silent. 1Chron.16:24, Amp — “Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous works among all peoples.”


Born To You This Day

nativity sceneJesus was born on a REAL DAY in REAL HISTORY (“For there is BORN TO YOU THIS DAY” ) and is relevant to man’s needs and man’s cries today in the real world. He was born as The Answer and no one else and nothing else will meet the need within us nor will anything else fulfill us. He was “born to” us to be our “all in all” (Eph 1:23) and the world around us will benefit. 

“Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 FOR THERE IS BORN TO YOU THIS DAY in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” (Lk.2:10-11, NKJV)
