Topic: Declare The Word [February 26, 2018]
“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11 (KJV).
When a prophetic word is released, it is just like a control tower giving a landing permission to an aircraft. The control tower gives a landing permission to the aircraft so that the aircraft can come for a landing. In the same vein, when you declare the word, it is permission for what you declared to land. The Bible says, “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11) So it has been sent to you for you to prosper in it.
When we declare the word of God as believers, it is not a play on words, we are just imitating our Father. God never does anything without speaking it. Everything He does, He speaks and then the thing manifests. That is the way it works with God. So, if you are in the company of those who go about to speak what the devil says, you are cursing yourself. If you are busy every day, announcing and rehearsing what the devil has said, you are cursing yourself. Immediately the devil speaks, counter it with what God said; even if you are listening to it in the news.
If you are watching television and they say a certain disease is coming; you simply say: “Thank God I am not part of it, for by His stripes I am healed. God’s word says I will be far from oppression and from terror”. Talk back to the television because your words as a child of God are superior to any announcement on TV. Don’t let evil reports frame your thought pattern. Speak the word of God and let His word frame your thoughts. You are blessed.
