I Declare…Spiritual Growth Part III

The Word of God is growing and bearing fruit in my life. I am ever increasing in my knowledge of God and of His ways with spiritual wisdom and understanding being hallmarks of my life. I walk in a manner that is pleasing to the Lord, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. I also am strengthened with all power according to His glorious might, so that with patience and endurance I may run the Christian race with Joy. I thank God continually for delivering me from the domain of darkness and transferring me into the kingdom of His beloved Son. 

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

Colossians 1:3-14 (ESV) We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, 4 since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love that you have for all the saints, 5 because of the hope laid up for you in heaven. Of this you have heard before in the word of the truth, the gospel, 6 which has come to you, as indeed in the whole world it is bearing fruit and increasing—as it also does among you, since the day you heard it and understood the grace of God in truth, 7 just as you learned it from Epaphras our beloved fellow servant. He is a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf 8 and has made known to us your love in the Spirit. 9 And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, 10 so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. 11 May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, 12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. 13 He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
