Declaring the End of 2015 from the Beginning with Declarations of Hope

The year of 2015 has begun!

What will you SAY about it? Your words are so important in shaping the daily experiences that ultimately combine to determine the quality of your life.

God has always declared the end  from the beginning. He has always stated what He wanted, not what He didn’t want; and it always comes to pass.

“I declare the end from the beginning,

and from long ago what is not yet done,

saying: My plan will take place,

and I will do all My will.”

Isaiah 46:10

As you go through the process of setting goals for 2015, may I suggest that you include being intentional about declaring the fullness you desire to experience and not the lack you may be currently experiencing? Here’s a quote from E.W. Kenyon that I’d like to share with you:

Kenyon on Confession

 

What Kenyon said reinforces the principle of your words having creative power, as found in Romans 4:17. The NIV gives a clear understanding of that verse:

“As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.” He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.”

In 2015, how will you imitate your heavenly Father and declare your fullness instead of your lack?

How can you use Word-based declarations of hope (God’s Promises) to call into being the things that don’t currently exist?

Use Your Tongue for Life

 

This past weekend, I was privileged to speak at the TCWF Women’s Empowerment Conference. It was striking to hear the response of attendees who were helped by my pointing out the importance and the influence of their words.

 

 

English: This is a tongue

We all need to realize that our words are transporters of power in our lives. Proverbs 18:21 notes that life AND death are in the power of the tongue. When we read and believe words, or when we say and believe words, that leaves an imprint within us that either adds life to our lives or adds death. This death is not necessarily physical but rather it’s a secession or withdrawal of good from our lives. Speaking negatively should be avoided. Speaking negatively can drain us of hope!

 

 

Bible hope means to have a confident expectation of good. So speak hope-filled words, believe your words of hope,  and expect something good to be added to your life today. Jesus said His words are life (John 6:63). Why not agree with His words/promises by saying what He said? Speak and believe God’s words and you’ll be speaking life to your life.
