Declarations of War part three

Ephesians 6:11 “Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all the strategies and the deceits of the devil”. Christ redeemed me from the curse of the law having become a curse for me. I am free from fear. I am free from bondage and I am free from torment. Jesus has set me free and I am free indeed! I don’t look back.

I only look forward. I live today. I enjoy life today. I am focussed today. I get work done today. I enjoy my kids today. I enjoy my spouse today. I have peace today. I have the assurance of God down in my heart today. I am anchored in God today. My course is set. I don’t look behind me. I only look ahead. God orders my steps today.

God brings me into His balance and His alignment today. I see things through His eyes.  I put on the whole armor of God today. I put on the breastplate of righteousness. I gird my loins with truth. I shod my feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace. I take up the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit that is the word of God.

I apply the blood of Jesus over Wayne, Sierra and I today. I apply the blood of Jesus over our household and all our belongings. I declare the blood of Jesus over our marriage, and our relationships. I declare the blood of Jesus over our family members and friends. I declare the blood of Jesus over our ministry and over all the partners and ministries associated with us.

I am not moved by what I see. I am not moved by what I feel. I am not moved by what I hear. I am not moved by what things look like. I am only moved by the word of God. His word is final authority in my life. God’s word says it. I believe it and that settles it! This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it!
