The creative power of words is amazing. It has been said that our words are “a self-fulfilling prophecy.” What we say – the words that come out of our mouth – are powerful and they are important. What we allow in our spirit and in our mind determines the words that we speak. We recite from the data that we place or allow into our spirit and into our mind. What we say must be intentional, calculated, and predetermined. To speak what the world, the kingdom of darkness, says around us can be devastating. We are told to program (renew) our mind by washing it with the water of our God’s Word. We are to declare the reality of His Kingdom by repeating what His Word says about us and about Him, and to do so out loud. The power is not in reading, but in declaring out loud. There is great power in doing this.
We repeat out loud His Word until our mind remembers what He has said, completely through our memorization. We do not stop there. We continue to repeat His Words out loud until they become internalized in our spirit and they become who we are. His Words remind us in our situations, in our circumstances, and in our relationships that we are who He says that we are, and He is who He says that He is.
What you see below is a daily confession/declaration that I wrote years ago, and still use today. It is my hope that you will take this confession and personalize it, and declare it out loud each and every day, until you can recite it from memory.
I have a whole ebook of declarations called Kingdom Activating Declarations that you can download for free right here.
My Personal Daily Confession of My Relationship with my God, My Father, and My King
Father God, You as the Lord Jesus Christ are Lord over my spirit, my mind and my body. (Phil 2:9-11) Jesus, You have been made unto me to be wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, redemption and full restoration of the Kingdom in my life, both in relationship and in benefit. I can do all things through You, Lord Jesus, because You strengthen me. (1 Cor.1:30, Phil 4:13) Lord, You are my shepherd, I do not want. You Father God supply all of my need according to Your riches in glory, in Christ Jesus. Your glory is all around me and I reach out pull into me all that I need. (Ps. 23, Phil. 4:19). I do not fret or have anxiety about anything. I do not have a care. (Phil. 4:6, 1 Peter 5: 6, 7)
I am the Body of Christ. I am redeemed from the curse because You Lord Jesus bore my sickness and carried my diseases in Your own body. By Your stripes I am healed. I forbid any sickness or any disease to operate in my body. Every organ, every tissue, every fiber and cell of my being functions in the perfection in which You, Father God created it to function. I honor You God and bring glory to You in my body. (Gal. 3:13, Matt. 8:17, 1 Peter 2:24, 1 Cor. 2:16)
I have Your mind Lord Jesus, and I hold the thoughts, the feelings and the purposes of Your heart. (1 Cor. 2:16) I am a believer and not a doubter. I hold fast to my confession of faith. I decide to walk by faith and to practice faith. My faith comes from hearing and from hearing Your Words Lord Jesus . Jesus You are the Author and the Developer of my faith. (Heb. 4: 14, 11:6, Romans 10:17, Heb. 12:2)
Your love Father God has been poured out in my heart by the Holy Spirit God and Your love dwells in me continually and richly. I keep myself in the Kingdom of Light, in love and in the Word and the wicked one touches me not. (Romans 5:5, 1 John 4:6, 5:18)
I tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy. I take my shield of faith and quench every fiery dart of the defeated Satan. Greater are You that lives in and works through me than he that is in the world. (Ps. 91:13, Eph. 6:16, 1 John 4: 4) I am delivered from this present evil world. I am seated with Christ Jesus in heavenly places. I reside in the Kingdom of God’s dear Son. The law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the Law of Sin and Death. (Gal. 1:4, Eph. 2:6, Col 1:13, Rom. 8:2)
I do not fear, because you Father God have given me a spirit of power, of love, and of a sound mind. God, You are on my side. (2 Tim. 1, 7, Rom. 8:31)
I hear the voice of the Good Shepherd. I hear my Father’s voice and the voice of a stranger I will not follow. I roll my works upon you Lord Jesus. I commit and trust them completely to you. You cause my thoughts to become agreeable with Your will, and so shall my plans be established and succeed. (John 10:27, Prov. 16:3)
I am a world overcomer because I am born of you Father God. I represent the Father and Jesus’ will. I am a useful member of the Body of Christ. I am Your workmanship Father God, recreated in Christ Jesus. You Father God are continually and effectively at work in me to lead me to both want to do and then to do Your good pleasure. (1 John 5: 4, 5, Eph 2:10, Phil. 2:13)
I let Your Word live in me richly. You who began a good work in me will continue until the day of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Col. 3:16, Phil 1:6)
Praises be to Your Name my Father. You are always faithful.
