Hope from the Truths of God's Word

Declaring Jesus is Lord Over Your Life

God has been prompting me to declare “Jesus is Lord.” 

I’ve been in an intense spiritual battle since I launched Prayers for New Brides. My health, my confidence, and my mind have been affected the most. It has been hard for me to concentrate, to accomplish work, and to feel joyful.

In the midst of the unseen oppression, God is directing my focus to His indestructible joy and the abundant life He offers.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. John 10:10

In this verse, I see God acknowledging the work of His enemy, our enemy. And in the next breath, He declares that He trumps the schemes of death and offers life – abundance, satisfaction, everything we need. He does not say we will avoid the suffering and the schemes of life’s greatest antagonist. He says that in the struggle, He will provide what we need. And then after a brief life on this earth, eternity with Him will be free of the schemes, the sin, the scars, the struggle.

Jesus’ name has real power on earth and in the spiritual realm.

Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11

Even demons know His power.

You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that–and shudder. James 2:19

In the synagogue there was a man possessed by a demon, an impure spirit. He cried out at the top of his voice, “Go away! What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are–the Holy One of God!” Luke 4:34

These verses give me great confidence. Do they have you sitting up a little straighter too?

Demons shudder at the supremacy of God and know that Jesus has the power to destroy them. Jesus is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. I am confident that as I speak His name, the demons assigned to me tremble.

At the Name of Jesus

This is the declaration I have been speaking over myself for the last few days. In the beginning, I sounded wimpy and unsure. But now, I am speaking these words (swinging the Sword of the Spirit) like a boss!

Jesus is Lord over my mind, my body, and my soul and how they work together.
Jesus is Lord over my thoughts, my feelings, my will, and my memory.
Jesus is Lord over the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart.

Jesus is Lord over my organs, tissues, cells, systems, and bones.
My _____, ______, and _____ belong to Him.
(Fill in the blanks with the problem areas or areas that you fear are at risk.)

Jesus is Lord over my role as David’s wife.
Jesus is Lord over our marriage.
Jesus is Lord over our unity as husband and wife.

Jesus is Lord over my day, my decisions, and my interactions.

I bind the spirit of confusion and loose Jesus’ spirit of order over my life.
I bind the spirit of heaviness and loose a spirit of praise for Jesus over my life.

If any demon has plans for me today, he has to look into the eyes of Jesus who holds my life in His hands.

What would you add to this declaration?

What declarations of God’s truth are you making over your life?

    Powerful. Thank you for reminding me that I am a child of the King. I can use the sword of the Spirit to speak power over my life. I can let God take captive every thought to keep the devil out of my mind. This is where he attacks us the most. He fills our minds with lies and confusion. I declare the Power of the Lord to keep Satan out of my mind today!

    1. I agree with you in Jesus name, Renee.

    When we are closer to GOD, that is when the devil comes the most, and he uses anyone and everyone when we draw closer to GOD, my sister and my own mom are in the devils hands right now, and all though it hurts and I am dying, they could not handle my happiness and I let them destroy me, now I am working so hard for GOD’S love, but I don’t fill it, I just want to cry so much, I so miss GOD’S beautiful peace that I cant seem to get back. I so want to fill loved again and it is just not there, and I am just lost know, just so lost.

    1. Lord, I lift Penny up to you now and ask You to reveal to her how much You truly love her. I ask that You shield and protect her from the evil one. You have given her a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. Let no weapon formed against her experience of these gifts prosper. In Jesus, I pray. Amen

    For the first time in 26 years I drew a full breath of air in my lungs last night, the faith healer said that GOD had me and it was going to be a slow process, but GOD has me, and I not only drew a full breath is, but I was able to exhale it to, I was able to do this for about an hour before it started coming down but I did it and you could feel the Holy Spirit humming in there last night.
