The declarations we make today will become the fruit of our tomorrows. What we say to ourselves, and to others, by way of fact, has a lot to do with what our lives will become. Joshua Fowler says it this way, “As the Word enters your eye gates, declare it with your mouth gate, into your ear gates, then you will be able to take the gates.”
In Job 22, we are told that when we declare something, it will be soon be established. Again, there is power in tomorrow by what we declare today. The writer of Proverbs tells us there is death and life in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21).
Like Ezekiel, in the valley of dry bones, he spoke, and the dead came to life. You see, Ezekiel could have looked at the bones and said, “Well, too bad. You’re dead, right?” But instead, God told him to ‘declare’ life, and as the old adage goes, “the rest was history.”
You see, our faith was not just intended to be for us, it was intended to flow through us, through the power of our tongue. We have been given the power to speak for, and too, each generation, and the generations to come. Thus, what we declare to them today has the power to change the history of tomorrow.
So, what do you declare today to be truth by which you live each of your tomorrows? “For they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony” (Revelation 12:11).
May I offer, declare the name of Jesus as Lord. Declare to the world that you have no other authority in life, than God’s Word – the Bible. Declare to yourself that sin has no power in any part of your life. Declare right now, that you are free to live in the Spirit and in the image of the living God. Declare today, that this is the day the Lord has made, and you will live in the glory, the strength, the faith, and the joy of it. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
