The mystery (puzzle) that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the saints. To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:26-27

give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever!Let the redeemed of the Lord
say so, whom He has delivered from the hand of the adversary
Psalm 107:1, 2 (AMP)
I’ve been thinking a lot
about declarations of late and how there is power in the words we speak.
To declare means:
• To make known formally or
• To state emphatically or authoritatively; affirm.
• To reveal or make manifest; show.
The words you speak are
powerful; remember God spoke this whole world into existence by His Word.Since we are created in His image, we have
the power and authority to make declarations over our own lives.
Each week in church, we stand
and repeat The Nicene Creed.This Creed
is a declaration of what we believe spiritually as a congregation.
On Sundays, when I take
communion, I go back to my seat with the wafer in my hand and I make my own
declaration to my Jesus.This is a
powerful reminder to keep my eyes on my saviour and all he has done for me.It is also a reminder to me of where I stand
in the sight of my Father God.
This is my own personal declaration:
your stripes I am healed,
your blood, I am washed clean,
your broken body, I am made whole,
the crown of thorns you wore, I now wear a crown of salvation,
your nakedness, I am clothed with a robe of righteousness,
by your sacrifice and your substitutionary death on the cross, I can boldly
stand before my Daddy God.
you Jesus for all you have done for me.”
What do you think of
declarations?Do you have your own?
