Divine Decree

Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.  Job 22:28 KJV

The burial ceremony was scheduled for March 21-23, 2019. As preparations were ongoing, I prayed. One of the prayers was that rain would not fall for those three days. The rainy season had already started in Delta State, Nigeria.

God honoured and answered my prayer. No rain fell until we had finished the burial and left our hometown, the venue of the interment.

Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways. This verse reveals that when we make a declaration as believers, God honors the words of our mouths. He has given us the power to make a decree that helps bring solutions to different circumstances. Jesus is the living Word of God, and when we give a divine pronouncement, He activates it and it goes into action.

God is the principal actor of all decrees and an organizer of all events through His spoken Word. He doesn’t want us to fear, but to use His Word to create positive things by speaking to negative situations and causing them to give way. God likens His words to a fire and a hammer. He wants us to use it to hammer stubborn situations. The Word of God in our mouth is a silver bullet that carries divine weight.

God’s words are effective when we speak them with holiness and righteousness. He has given all believers authority to decree over unpleasant circumstances. As we live in holiness and righteousness, God will make us forces to reckon with. 

Don’t fear speaking God’s power into your negative circumstances.
