Prophetic Declaration Based on Joshua 1

This is a new day. I am entering into the Promised Land. I am entering into the plans
and purposes of God for my life. I am entering into my inheritance and receiving Gods
promises, every one.
Nothing can stand in my way and no enemy will prevail against me, for God is with me.
He will never leave me or forsake me.
I am strong and courageous; I am not fearful or discouraged. I feed on the Word of God.
I keep Gods Word in my heart and I obey it. I have success in that which God has called
me to.
2. Prophetic Declaration Based on Isaiah 54:1-5.
I sing; I burst into song, I shout for joy, for the promises of God are being birthed in my
life. The Lord is giving me spiritual children! I am pushing out the boundaries around
my life. I am making room. I do not hold back.
I am spreading out to the right and the left. My children, both natural and spiritual, are
going to inherit this nation and the nations for the Kingdom of God.
I am not afraid, and I do not fear disgrace. I am entering into intimacy with my God, for
that is the place where all of these things will be accomplished. God is Almighty, He is
my Creator, He is my Redeemer, He is in control.
3. Prophetic Declaration Based on Luke 4:18-19
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to preach good news to
the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight to
the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lords favour.
4. The Prayer of Jabez in 1 Chronicles 4:10
Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and
keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.

I am like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, I am yielding fruit in


seasonNOW! THIS IS MY SEASON; my leaf does not wither and in whatever I
do, I prosper.
Another one is adapted from Jeremiah 30:17: You are restoring health to me
and healing my wounds Lord. From Proverbs 11:25 I declare: I will be
exceedingly generous and I will be exceedingly prosperous. I water and I am
watered. A final example is from Psalm 27:13: I will see the goodness of the
Lord in the land of the living. That passage comforted me once when I was
discouraged about how long certain prayers were taking. I wondered if the
answers would only come in eternity. God highlighted the verse to me as an
assurance that I would see answers in my lifetime.

How To Fall In Love With The Bible Again

Here are some keys that have helped me recover my love for Gods Word:
1. Realise Something Is Missing

Jesus said ask, seek, knock, (Matt 7:7-8) but we will never do any of those
things until we become conscious that we have a need.
Until we realise that what we are experiencing in relation to the
Bible is less than what it could be, we will never change.
It was only when I realised how dry I was and how dead my devotional
life had become that I decided to do something about it. I began to Ask, seek and
knock.
2. Reconsider the Value of the Bible

Recently I read a news item about a real-life slum-dog millionaire. This man was living
in a slum whilst he had access to millions of dollars.
Like this guy, I had been living like a spiritual pauper whilst sitting
on a fortuneGods Word.

As I began my seeking time, I went through Psalm 119, in which David expounds the
wonders of Gods Word. One of the verses that stood out to me was, Your word has
given me life (Ps 119:50).
Being revived by Gods word is a recurring theme in this Psalm, with the Hebrew
word, chayah, meaning to revive, nourish, restore to life, and give
life to, being used 16 times in relation to Gods Word.
When it comes to the Bible, life is a verb! The promise of being revivedor
lifedthrough Gods Word kept me on track. There was obviously
something in my devotional life I had missed.
3. Relate to the Bible the Way Jesus Does

The next breakthrough in my journey came when I had an idea to take a look at how
Jesus responded to the Bible in the Gospels. Perhaps by studying His response
to the Bible, I could see what I was missing.
Jesus knew the scriptures intimately and used His knowledge of them to teach others.
But more than thisHe lived them.
Jesus walked in perfect fulfillment of Gods Word. The Old Testament
described every details of His life from birth to death, His character, His purpose and
mission and His redeeming work on the cross.
As I considered Jesus response to the scriptures, it occurred to me that just as Jesus
walked in fulfillment of Gods Word, so should I.
The Bible explains my origins, my value, my redemption, my call,
and my destiny. The Bible is the story of me. And its your story, too.
I have known the scripture as a place of instruction, upbuilding, protection and power to
live the Christian life. I have understood the Bible as the story of Jesus, the story of
redemption, the story of Israel and the church.
But this simple revelationthat the Bible is the story of meis the
one that helped bring me back to life.

4. Reconnect Creatively With Gods Word

When my children were small and had been sick, they sometimes lost their appetite for
food.
I would give them smaller portions of tasty food that would tempt them to eat, and help
strengthen their appetites.
It is important, when we have lost our appetite for Gods Word, to
provide ourselves with fresh inspiration, and new tools or methods
to help us study.
Here is one tool that can be used for Bible study and journaling:

The SOAP journaling method


SOAP is an acronym:

Scripture

Observation

Application

Prayer

To use this journaling style, read your portion of scriptureit may be a daily reading or
a passage or book in the Bible you are currently studying
S = Choose a verse that has particularly spoken to you and write it
in your journal
O = Note down your observationwhat God is saying to you
personally through the verse
A = Record how you can put what God is saying into practice in your
life

P = Now write a brief prayer in response to what God has spoken to


you
Over the next few days I will be using the SOAP method in my own journal and
write my observations in the comments section of this post.

No Satanic plan against Jacob nor divination against Israel can ever prevail. When the time is right, it is to be
asked about Jacob and Israel, What has God accomplished? Num 23:23

an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come
