We continue from last week on Aligning with God- Obedience and Prayer to live a full life and stay on the path of purpose and power. Remember we have defined being in alignment with God as ‘coming into a position of agreement with God. It is going into an alliance with Him, allowing Him arrange our route in the correct positions.
How do we align or get re-aligned with God? We are looking at four ways; Obedience, Prayer, Decrees and Declarations. This week we will study Decrees and Declarations.
"I will lead the blind by a way they do not know, In paths they do not know I will guide them I will make darkness into light before them And rugged places into plains These are the things I will do, And I will not leave them undone."
Our text is taken from Isaiah 42:16
Building alignment with God through Decrees is a powerful show of faith by the believer. It is the instituting of a new order though the spoken Word of God. A decree is defined as an official order backed by the law. This means in making decrees we must make sure we back it with the Word of God. We change the order (arrangement) of things by speaking God’s order into our lives as guided by the Holy Spirit. Kings issue decrees to change the way things are done, the decree is an order to be obeyed immediately. When we decree a thing, all of heaven is behind that word /order to enforce it; Job 22:28 says “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.” An example of a Decree is; I decree today that every contrary spirit to the fulfillment of my purpose in God be removed by the Holy Spirit. You cease to operate in my life as from today.
Decrees are different from Declarations, a declaration is a formal or explicit statement or announcement. While Decrees are orders, declarations are statements that can arise from a decree. We must make declarations that solidify our positions and make us immovable. We make these announcements to the heavenliness and let the atmosphere know that we are unshakeable and we are determined to go God’s way.
A declaration from the above decree could be “ I announce the entrance of Oge into the realm of the supernatural, I am immovable by circumstances, I know that God is for me.” Another example is “I declare that I am light and salt, I am a solution to my world.” Finally as we align (agree, ally, arrange,position) with God, He releases Power, Wealth, Strategies, Renewal, Growth and restoration.
IT IS TIME! BE IN ALIGNMENT!
