According to the Cambridge English Dictionary, the word decree is defined as
1) an official statement that something must happen
2) to officially decide or order that something must happen.
Let’s look at the book of Job what it says in chapter 22:28“You shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established to you: and the light shall shine on your ways.”
Hebrews 11:3 “By faith, we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.”
When we read the Book of Genesis how God created the Heavens and the Earth. The Earth was formless, empty and darkness was over the surface of the deep and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
He calls those things which do not exist as though they were and there was this Big Bang when he releases those words “Let there be”, now what’s empty ,void and dark gets filled from nothing into something, something miraculous, something beautiful, something which is wonderful, great and awesome beyond the imagination of Man and He created all this for His glory. Hallelujah!
Proverbs 18:21 “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
Jesus Curses a Fig Tree
12 The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry.13 Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs.14 Then he said to the tree, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again.” And his disciples heard him say it.
20 In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots.21 Peter remembered and said to Jesus, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!”
Numbers 6:22-26The Message (MSG)
The Aaronic Blessing
22-23 God spoke to Moses: “Tell Aaron and his sons, This is how you are to bless the People of Israel. Say to them,
24 God bless you and keep you,
25 God smile on you and gift you,
26 God look you full in the face
and make you prosper.
The Jewish people are so blessed, successful and prosperous in media, entertainment, science and technology and even in business it’s because of the Aaronic(Priestly) blessing(decree) Of YAHWEH(God) that is upon them.
When your dream, financial life, family life seems dead and looks like it’s not working as you expected it to be. Begin to speak life, peace, and blessing every day to that situation and you will see the change in your life, your family, your relationship and in every area of your life.
There is power in our tongue that is why it is very important for us to decree God’s word over our personal life and over our situation. When we decree blessings in our life, we are literally speaking blessings and life because the tongue has the power of life and death in it .
I just want to encourage you today to speak blessings into your life because life is a blessing, it is a gift from God and He loves you and He wants to see you blessed.
James 3:5-8 “Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind. but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.”
We cannot control the tongue the only thing that will keep us from speaking negative things over our life is when we yield and surrender our tongue to God and let Him take control of what we cannot control.
This is the problem with us, when we think we can control everything, the fact is we cannot. If God can control the whole universe, well He can control your tongue too only if you allow Him too. Nothing is impossible with our God
Luke 6:45 “The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.”
When we fill our hearts with God’s word because in Matthew 4:4 -Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ The Word of God is food for our spirit man.
We must meditate on it, then begin to decree according to His word and what fills our heart will eventually flow from it and what feeds us will lead us because In Luke 6:45 it says out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks, so I encourage you to read God’s word and speak God’s word.
Hebrews 4:12″ For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, and it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”
The Word of God is powerful, sharper than any double-edged sword. When we decree “We are blessed to be a blessing” It will cut us off from the curse that the enemy has against us and it will bring our life into alignment with God’s word.
Now let’s look at the book of Isaiah 55:11″So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but it will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”
When we speak God’s word it will not return to us empty but it will accomplish what God’s desire is for us, and His desire is to bless us and to achieve His purpose, His purpose for us is to give us a hope and a future(of success not suffering).
Jeremiah 29:11 ” I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for. “(Good news translation)
Do you want to be blessed? Do you want to know who is the source of all blessings? Well, let me tell you who is this source of all blessings. His name is Jesus, the Son of God, He knows you and He loves you if you want to accept Him into your life and have a personal relationship with Him, you can pray the following prayer below:
