Each day the declaration you make before the Lord is important for the weight it carries into the heavens,
words spoken in faith with a specific objective in mind. Specifically, the Lord speaks to our understanding and as we receive His words, we too speak; we speak in declaration of His will, according to that which we have heard Him say.
“And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.” (2 Peter 1:19-21, NKJV)
Peter tells us that having seen and heard what took place at the Transfiguration, He was an eyewitness to that event; and that the prophetic word was therefore more sure, KJV) – the prophetic word spoken beforehand was confirmed (NKJV) – to him. And which, Peter writes, “. . . you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place.”
Words spoken to our spirits – from the spirit of God into our human spirits – carry weight because they are God’s words. He determined before you were born to bless and benefit you and He speaks to you today along that same line in order for you to cooperate with what He is doing at any given time. When God speaks, it’s prophetic; and when you hear Him speak, you have received prophetic words from Him. So take heed to what you have heard!
The prophetic word concerning what would take place concerning the Son of God did take place. Jesus was born; He was crucified, died and was buried. He was raised again to life on the third day. That happened. We see now the prophets were clear, and they were correct in the words they spoke and wrote. They took heed to words spoken to them by the Lord. Taking heed, they believed the words; believing the words, they spoke the words… and the words came to pass. That is the pattern.
Note: Write out your declaration today. Do not wait. The Lord will do what He has said He will do. Your words speaking the same thing He speaks concerning the most important matters of your family, business, and nation make all the difference. Also, as you discipline your words to same thing He is saying, your thoughts will line-up and your expectations will, too.
