I Declare…Spiritual Growth (Part V)

I am moving upwards in God. My trajectory is toward God not moving away from Him. My position as a child of God is secure, for my steadfast faith in Jesus Christ has made it so. Yes, I have a solid and secure faith that only increases. Decrease is not a part of my life, for whomever is entwined with Jesus can’t help but increase. I am ever growing in my understanding and knowledge of God and of His ways. I also have determined to never fall back but only move forward in Him. My faith is strong, my God is sure and the Word in which I trust, faithfully guides me through life.

This is what I believe and boldly and confidently declare! (note: these “I declare” statements work best when confessed out loud)

Ephesians 1:3-10 (ESV) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, 4 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. 7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, 8 which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight 9 making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ 10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.

Boldly Declaring Our Faith VII

My God supplies all my needs according to his glorious riches by Christ Jesus. I lack for nothing for the Lord is my shepherd. I am blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. God has delivered me from the dominion of darkness by the death of the Lord Christ Jesus and translated me into the kingdom of light by His glorious resurrection from the dead. Jesus loved me and washed me from my sins in His own blood, and made me a king and a priest unto my God and Father. In Christ Jesus, I have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. – By the blood of Jesus I am free from poverty, sickness, disease, infirmity and lack in any area of my life.

This is what I believe and boldly declare!

Colossians 2:13-15 (ESV) And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, 14 by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. 15 He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.

Boldly Declaring Our Faith VI

I am dead indeed unto sin – by the death of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and I’m now alive unto God through Jesus Christ my Lord. By the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ, I am crucified unto the world and the world is crucified unto me. Grace and peace are mine from my God and Father and my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ – for he has blessed me with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. I have abundance and no lack. I am a cheerful giver. I give and it is given unto me, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over do men give unto my bosom.

This is what I believe and boldly declare!

Boldly Declaring Our Faith V

I give thanks unto God who always causes me to triumph in Christ Jesus. I give thanks and praise unto God who gives me victory through Jesus Christ my Lord. I stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ has made me free. God has made me a partaker of the inheritance of the saints – He translated me from the dominion of darkness into the kingdom of His dear Son in whom I have redemption through his blood – even the remission of my sins. God made him who knew no sin to be a sin offering for me in His death on the cross, that I might be made the righteousness of God in Him.

Boldly Declaring Our Faith IV

 I am strong, I am full of vigor and the word of God abides in me and I have overcome the evil one. I am strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. I am more than a conqueror through Christ who loved me. I am free from all condemnation because I am in Christ Jesus and the law of the Sprit of Life in Him has made me free from the law of sin and death. The Holy Spirit bears witness with my spirit that I am a child of God. Because I am His child I am also His Heir. I am an heir of God and a joint heir with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (All that the Father and Jesus own is also my possession.) In Christ, I have redemption through his blood – even the remission of my sins – according to the riches of Gods’ grace which He has lavished on me with all wisdom and prudence.

This is what I believe and boldly declare!

Father!” 7 So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.

God has reconciled me unto Himself by the body of Christ’s flesh through death presenting me holy, blameless, and above reproach in his sight.

I have been washed, and I have been sanctified, and I have been justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of my God. And I overcome the enemy and all of his tricks and tactics, by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of my testimony.
