Here are powerful daily declarations from Steve to ignite your hope, joy, and renew your mind with truth.

STEVE’S DAILY DECLARATIONS

Declarations #1 – These ten basic declarations are foundational to the building of your faith. They will increase expectancy of God’s goodness, and thus will increase the manifestation of that goodness in your life. Jesus said, “According to your faith, so be it” (Matthew 8:13). Say these (and other declarations) every day for a month and see what happens to your life.

1. My prayers are powerful and effective (James 5:16b).

2. God richly supplies all my needs (Philippians 4:19).

3. I am dead to sin and alive to live supernaturally (Romans 6:11; 2 Peter 1:4).

4. I walk in ever-increasing health (Psalm 103:1-3, Isaiah 53:5).

5. I live under supernatural protection (Psalm 91).

6. Like Jesus, I prosper in all my relationships (Luke 2:52).

7. I consistently bring God encounters to other people (Mark 16:17-18).

8. Through Jesus, I am 100% loved and worthy to receive all of God’s blessings (Colossians 1:12-14).

9. Each of my family members is wonderfully blessed and radically loves Jesus (Acts 16:30-31).

10. I uproariously laugh when I hear a lie from the devil (Psalm 2:2-4).

Declarations #2 – Remember this: Faith is the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). Our “evidence” for things being true is not our circumstances, but God’s promises. We don’t deny negative facts in our lives, but we choose to focus on a higher reality: God’s truth. Faith indeed comes by hearing (Romans 10:17); therefore, we choose to speak these powerful truths to build our own faith.

1. I set the course of my life with my words (James 3:2-5).

2. God is on my side; therefore, I declare I cannot be discouraged or defeated (Romans 8:37; Psalm 91; Philippians 4:13).

3. I am the head, not the tail. I have insight. I have wisdom. I have ideas and divine strategies. I have authority (Deuteronomy 8:18; 28:13; James 1:5-8; Luke 10:19).

4. As Abraham did, I speak God’s promises over my life. My faith is being strengthened to possess all that Jesus won for me (Romans 4:17-23).

5. I have a sound mind. Today, I will think the right thoughts, say the right words, and make the right decisions in every situation I face (2 Timothy 1:7).

6. I expect to have powerful, divine appointments today to heal the sick, raise the dead, prophesy life, lead people to Christ, bring deliverance, release signs and wonders, and bless every place I go (Book of Acts).

7. I expect that today will be the best day of my life spiritually, emotionally, relationally, and financially in Jesus’ name. (Romans 15:13).

Declarations #3 – One of the main methods Jesus and the apostles used in the gospels and Acts was to SPEAK TO things. You will notice that they did not ask God to heal people, cast out demons, or raise the dead, but they spoke to bodies, demons, the wind, etc. Jesus encouraged us to speak to mountains in Mark 11:23. This set of declarations specifically focuses on speaking to various aspects of our lives.

1. My angels are carrying out the Word of God on my behalf (Psalm 103:20).

2. All attacks that were headed my way are diverted right now by angelic protection in Jesus’ name (Psalm 91).

3. I declare peace over the raging waters in my mind, emotions, body, and family. I say, “Peace, be still” to each of these areas of my life (Mark 4:39).

4. I speak to every mountain of discouragement, stress, depression, and lack, and cast it into the sea in Jesus’ name (Mark 11:22-24).

5. I speak to this day, and I call you blessed. I declare I serve a mighty God who today will do exceedingly and abundantly beyond all that I can ask or think (Ephesians 3:20). I say You are a good God and I eagerly anticipate Your goodness today.

Taking Captive Negative Self-Talk

dreadThe feeling of dread wouldn’t leave me. My mind was stuck in a rut by thoughts of impending disaster coming our way. Thoughts of us losing everything and being left alone in our time of need.
