Eternally Transformed

The Victorious Power of Love


There are times in our lives when we​​ feel​​ like​​ we’ve​​ missed​​ the mark. We do or say something wrong. Or, perhaps we think we haven’t prayed enough, attended church enough, served enough, or read the Bible enough.​​ Then​​ our enemy,​​ Satan, begins to speak his lies. He will say things like, “God is no longer on your side. You don’t measure up. These​​ bad​​ things are happening because of what you did/said.​​ You can’t go to God​​ for anything​​ after you did/said​​ that.”​​ These lies and​​ negative thoughts​​ are designed to make us question God’s unconditional love and forgiveness for us, and​​ if we believe them, we will​​ run away from God when we need Him the most.


Child of God, I want you to personally embrace this truth: There is absolutely nothing you can do, or fail to do, that will cause God to​​ have anything but complete love for you.​​ God is not - and never will be - mad at you. He’s not even in a bad mood! Because​​ the precious blood of His dear Son​​ atoned for all sin - past, present, and future – you are​​ always and forever​​ pure and blameless before Him, as if you had never sinned. God will always love you,​​ He is always on your side,​​ and nothing​​ you can do​​ can separate you from His love (Romans 8:31-39).​​ 


Miraculous things happen for us when we​​ embrace​​ and trust in God’s love for us.​​ We will recognize the lies of the enemy and cast them down, and he will not be able to steal the Word and therefore gain a foothold in our lives. Being assured of God’s love for us​​ is truly the master key for​​ overcoming​​ all the issues we face in our lives. That is why it is vital that we meditate on​​ and renew our minds to how much He loves us.​​ 



Confessions for The Victorious Power of Love


God is always for me; therefore,​​ nothing can succeed against me.​​ God is always on my side; therefore, I have victory in every area of my life​​ (Romans 8:31-32).


I know that God loves me because He didn’t spare His only Son, and with Him, He has given me all things. When I received Jesus as my Lord and Savior, I received all that I will ever need​​ (Romans 8:32).


I have all that I need because I have Jesus. He is my wisdom, He is my healer, and He is my deliverer. He is peace in my marriage and family. He is my financier. I have received Him, and everything else is free.


Because of the precious blood of Jesus, God is never angry with me or against me.​​ 


I know that he deeply, greatly, and affectionately loves me! I know that I am His beloved​​ (1 Thessalonians 1:4).


I believe I am God’s beloved and I receive that love that He has for me. I have full revelation of His love for me.


The thoughts and plans God has for me are to prosper me and never to harm me; to give me a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).​​ 


God has taken every stumbling block in my path and turned it into a stepping-stone because He loves me.


I am strengthened with might by God’s spirit in my inner man. Christ dwells in my heart by faith. I am rooted and grounded in His love for me (Ephesians 3:14-17)


I have confidence in God’s love, and His might is available to me.


I enjoy my life because I know that God loves me.


I am whole – spirit, soul, and body – because I know that God loves me.


I know that the victorious power of God works in me constantly and​​ I am confident in the victorious power of His love​​ (Ephesians 3:20).


Overcoming​​ Shame and​​ Condemnation


Have you ever done something that left you feeling that God was mad at you or that you were a terrible person? Do you constantly feel unworthy or undeserving of good things? These feelings stem from​​ shame and​​ condemnation –​​ negative emotions​​ arising from listening to the lies of the enemy​​ that keep​​ us from receiving God’s love for​​ us.​​ Shame and condemnation leave​​ us​​ feeling​​ hopeless and​​ steal​​ our​​ confidence in the Word and God’s promises to us. ​​ We cannot see or imagine the wonderful future God has in store for our lives​​ when we give in to shame and condemnation.​​ 


Condemnation, stemming from sin-consciousness and misunderstanding the righteousness of God and therefore​​ their​​ own righteousness truly wreaks havoc in the lives of many people, causing them to reject God’s goodness.​​ Many people really believe God hates them, and some believe they​​ are completely unworthy where​​ His mercy, love, and forgiveness toward them are concerned.


The word​​ condemnation​​ means, “to judge or declare unfit for use”. A good illustration​​ of this concept​​ is a building that has been condemned or declared no longer fit for occupancy. It is the house with the boarded windows, overgrown shrubbery, and a caving roof. Condemned buildings are destined for one outcome – demolition and total destruction. This is the​​ same​​ result the enemy seeks to accomplish in our lives through condemnation​​ and shame.


Shame can appear in three forms: Accidental shame (such as embarrassing yourself in public, etc.), victim shame (the shame the victim of abuse would feel), and inherited shame (being ashamed of one’s body or family, etc.) and all three are closely associated with fear,​​ i.e. fear of what others will say, think, or do. When Jesus went to the cross He took our shame​​ and condemnation, therefore we should not tolerate it in our lives.


When we​​ allow ourselves to​​ feel condemned​​ or shameful, we do not believe​​ that God​​ can or will​​ bless us.​​ Shame and condemnation​​ will​​ steal​​ our confidence and rob​​ us of courage and boldness​​ to come​​ to God. We feel as though we are not good enough, we don’t do enough, and we cannot become everything God wants us to be. By receiving God’s grace and Jesus’ finished work, we can overcome​​ shame and​​ condemnation.​​ When we confess​​ the Word concerning our righteousness in Christ, we​​ are​​ able to stand against the thoughts and lies of the enemy when he tries to shame or condemn us. We will go boldly to the throne of God and obtain mercy and find grace to help in our time of need (Hebrews 4:16).



Confessions for Overcoming​​ Shame and​​ Condemnation


I fearlessly, confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace, and I know that I have mercy for my failures and grace to help in my time of need​​ (Hebrews 4:16).


Father, I thank you that there is therefore now no condemnation for me, because I am in Christ Jesus. I walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. I do not walk in shame or​​ condemnation but I walk in the Spirit​​ (Romans 8:1).


I thank you, Father, that you see me as righteous and perfect, without spot or blemish. As far as the east is from the west, so far have you removed my transgressions from me​​ (Ephesians 5:23; Psalm 103:12).​​ 


Father you did not send your Son into the world to condemn the world but to save it. I declare that I am saved. I am a new creation in Christ Jesus, old things are passed away and I have been made new​​ (John 3:17; 2 Corinthians 5:17).


The Word of God says that whoever believes on Him shall not be ashamed.​​ I believe on the Lord Jesus Christ; therefore, I am not​​ ashamed. I hear the Word and believe on the Father, who sent Jesus His Son. I have everlasting life. I am free from shame and condemnation. I have passed from death into life​​ (Romans 10:11;​​ 1 John 3:14).​​ 


The Lord is merciful to my unrighteousness, my sin and iniquities He remembers no more. He has blotted out my transgressions for His name’s sake. He does not remember my sins – past, present, or future​​ (Hebrews 8:12).


I recognize every thought that would bring shame, guilt, or condemnation and I cast it down, in Jesus’ name. I know who I am in Christ Jesus and the hope of my calling. My righteousness is of the Lord. I refuse to submit to thoughts or feelings of shame or condemnation in Jesus’ name​​ (2 Corinthians 10:5; Ephesians 1:18).



Taking Authority over Emotions


Emotions are feelings​​ we experience​​ caused by pain or pleasure that try to move us​​ toward a certain response.​​ Emotions are part of the soul, which​​ contains our thinking, decision-making capabilities, our personality, and our feelings.​​ We all have emotions, but they shouldn’t have us. If we allow our emotions to be in charge of our lives, they will determine the direction of our lives.


Taking control over our emotions doesn’t mean we should try to stop having them. Everyone has emotions; they are part of who we are.​​ For example,​​ God designed us to express passion, which is an emotion. We​​ also​​ express holy emotions toward​​ God when we worship Him. Our emotions signal to us when our feelings are hurt, our bodies are injured, or when we are threatened with danger. Although we have emotions​​ and they are a vital part of our well being, they are not supposed to control our lives.​​ Proverbs 25:28 says that a person who lacks self-control, or cannot rule over his own spirit, is like a city whose walls are broken down. We have emotions but we​​ are supposed to​​ have​​ control​​ over​​ them.​​ 

It is important that we learn how to​​ evaluate​​ our emotions and bring​​ them​​ into line​​ with the Word to ensure victory in our lives


Many Christians don’t understand the purpose for their emotions, and as a result,​​ they govern their lives. Emotionally led decisions​​ can​​ take us out of the will of God for our lives. God wants​​ the Holy Spirit​​ to lead our decisions; He never intended for our emotions to guide us.​​ 


God has given us the authority over everything in the earth, including our emotions. He has​​ also​​ given us the Holy Sprit who is our counselor. We can trust the​​ Holy Spirit to lead us and instruct us​​ in​​ how to​​ respond and behave in an emotional situation.



Confessions for Defeating Negative Emotions


Heavenly Father, thank you for giving me healthy emotions.


I declare that negative emotions do not impact my decisions; neither do they dictate my response to difficult circumstances.


I bring my feelings in line with the Word in every situation that I encounter in life. I have been given authority over all of the power of the enemy, and I declare that nothing shall by any means harm me, including people and situations that try to negatively influence my emotions​​ (Luke 10:19).


I am free from fear and every negative emotion associated with fear; I am free from depression, anxiety, worry, fear, doubt, unbelief, anger, rejection, and every other negative emotion. I cast down every thought that the enemy would bring to attack my joy, and bring it into captivity to the obedience of the word of God, in Jesus’ name​​ (2 Timothy 1:7; 2 Corinthians 10:5).


I am slow to anger, quick to listen, and slow to speak. I am slow to take offense and quick to forgive. I have rule over my own spirit, I have rule over my emotions. I do not let my emotions have rule over me​​ (James 1:19; Proverbs 25:28).


I do not have a spirit of fear; I have power, love, and a sound mind in Jesus’ name​​ (2 Timothy 1:7).

I declare that I walk in peace, joy, and comfort of the Holy Ghost. I have the mind of Christ and my emotions are in line with the Word of God​​ (Romans 15:13; 1 Corinthians 2:16).



Identity in Christ


Tremendous power and authority has been made available to the Christian who understands who he/she​​ is in Christ.​​ If we​​ are going to truly walk in this​​ power​​ and authority​​ that God has called us to walk in, we must​​ renew our minds to​​ who we are in Christ.​​ This can be accomplished by constantly meditating​​ on what God says about us in His Word. By looking into the Word of God as we would look into a mirror, we see the true picture of who we are. Our image is found on the pages of Scripture, and when we internalize this image and take ownership of it​​ in our innermost being, we​​ become walking, talking demonstrations of God’s love and power to all those with whom we come in contact.


The Bible says that we are transformed by the renewing​​ of our minds (Romans 12:2), and we renew our minds​​ by speaking the word of God out of our mouth so that we hear it. Because​​ faith comes by hearing (Romans 10:17), as we hear our own​​ mouth speak God’s​​ words,​​ our faith and confidence in who God has made us to be​​ and the authority He has given us​​ is​​ strengthened and we will become fully persuaded of our identity and authority in Christ.​​ 


When we speak​​ the Word​​ over our lives, declaring what God has said about us, it builds an inner image of who we really are on the inside and frames the way we see ourselves. Armed with​​ full​​ confidence in our Christ-identities​​ and​​ our​​ authority we have as believers, we are literally unstoppable. There is nothing the enemy can do against a Christian who​​ knows​​ their authority and​​ who he or she is in Christ. Make these confessions daily to help build a strong inner image of Christ in you:



Confessions to Establish Your Identity in Christ

I am a son/daughter of God​​ (Galatians 3:26).


I am born of the Spirit, and I walk according to the Spirit, which means I walk according to the Word of God​​ (Romans 8:5).​​ 


My life is in Christ. He is in me, and I am in Him​​ (Colossians 3:3).


I am the righteousness of God in Christ. I am able to stand in God’s presence without guilt or condemnation because of my relationship with Jesus. I am free from feelings of inferiority and unworthiness (2 Corinthians 5:21).


I am redeemed from the kingdom of darkness, and I am translated into the kingdom of God’s dear Son. I reign with Christ in life, and I am seated with Him in Heavenly places​​ (Colossians 1:13; Romans 5:17).


I live in the kingdom of God, where there is life, light, liberty, joy, peace, health, assurance, blessing, and power.


I am an heir God and a joint heir with Jesus Christ. I have access to everything that He has access to​​ (Romans 8:17).


I have been given authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and over all of the power of the enemy, and nothing, by any means, harms me (Luke 10:19).


I am more than a conqueror; I am an overcomer. Greater is He who is in me than He who is in the world (Romans 8:37; 1 John 4:4).​​ 


The same spirit that raised Christ Jesus from the dead lives in me. The works that He did, I do also, and greater works than these I do because He has gone to the Father and I have the Holy Spirit dwelling on the inside of me​​ (Romans 8:11; John 14:12).​​ 


I am a believer, and these signs follow me: In the name of Jesus I heal the sick, I raise the dead, I cast out devils and they flee from me. I have the name of Jesus that is above every name, and at the name of Jesus every knee must bow and every tongue must confess that He is Lord​​ (Mark 16:17; Philippians 2:9).


I am blessed with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ Jesus​​ (Ephesians 1:3).​​ 


My Father loves me as He loves Jesus. He loves me with an everlasting love​​ (John 15:9).


Jesus is the Vine, and I am a branch. I have the same life, love, joy, peace, power, wisdom, and ability flowing through me that flows in the Vine​​ (John 15:5).​​ 


My spirit has been quickened and made alive, and in Jesus I live and move and have my being​​ (Ephesians 2:1).


God’s Word is forever settled in Heaven, and I establish His Word on this earth​​ (Psalm 119:89).



Covenant of Protection


Everywhere we look these days we are​​ being​​ bombarded with fear.​​ It seems that the news, social media, and even the people around us are constantly telling us about some terrible thing that is going on, be it disease, terrorism, environmental issues, natural disaster, or violence.​​ Regardless of what​​ happens​​ in the world, as believers​​ we can live with the confidence that God will keep us safe and protected.​​ As Christians, we have been redeemed from the curse of the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2), which means we are no longer subject to the terrible things that go in the world as a result of the curse. God has made a covenant of protection for all believers, and when we renew our minds to what God promises concerning our protection, we​​ will​​ have no reason to live in fear.​​ No matter what we see or hear on the news or anywhere else, we must not be afraid, for it will not come near us (Psalm 91:7)!


God’s Word is filled with promises to deliver His people from terror and destruction (Psalm 91:5). These​​ promises​​ become​​ a reality in our lives when we “make the Most High [our] dwelling”​​ (Psalm 91:9).​​ In other words, we​​ must​​ place our trust in God’s Word​​ completely - above anything and​​ anyone – where our safety and protection are concerned. In doing so, we know God​​ will honor His Word​​ which will keep us safe and secure, without fear of harm (Proverbs 1:33).



Confessions for Your Covenant of Protection


I am established in righteousness, I am far from oppression​​ (Isaiah 54:14).


I dwell in the shelter of the Most High, and I rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, and in Him I confidently put my trust​​ (Psalm 91:1,2).​​ 


I am not afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that​​ lay waste at noonday​​ (Psalm 91:5,6).


A thousand may fall at my side, and ten thousand at my right hand, but it shall not come near me​​ (Psalm 91:7).


No evil shall befall me, nor shall any plague come near my dwelling. The Lord has given His angels charge over me, and they keep me, defend me, and preserve me in all my ways​​ (Psalm 91:10,11).​​ 


In my pathway there is life and no death​​ (Proverbs 12:28).


No weapon that is formed against me shall proper, and every tongue that rises against me in judgment I condemn. This is my heritage as a servant of the Lord​​ (Isaiah 54:17).


The angel of the Lord is encamped around me and delivers me​​ (Psalm 34:7).​​ 


With long life I am satisfied. When the enemy comes against me one way, he flees before me seven ways​​ (Psalm 91:16; Deuteronomy 28:7).


Overcoming Financial Hardship


Prosperity is part of the finished work​​ of Jesus, which means that He died so that we can​​ experience abundance and blessing in every part of our lives, including our finances. Our financial freedom was finished and paid for at the cross!


The Word doesn’t say anything about this being dependent on​​ what is going on in the world. Christians live by a different set of laws because we are in the world but not of the world (John 17:16). When we know what is available to us in the Word of God and utilize our faith to take hold of it, we will never go without.

One of the keys to being financially free is to be a giver. The Kingdom of Heaven operates under​​ Spiritual laws, one being the Law of Seedtime and Harvest. God says in His​​ Word that​​ we will reap what we sow (Galatians 6:7), and that if we sow a bountiful seed, we will reap a bountiful harvest (2 Corinthians 9:6).​​ Being a giver demonstrates that we trust God with our finances and to be our Provider – so much so that we give generously and without reservation – and it kicks fear of lack in the teeth by putting action to our faith.


​​ “Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity; for God loveth a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work. Now he that​​ ministereth seed​​ to the​​ sower both minister bread for food, and multiply your seed sown being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God” (2 Corinthians 9:7-10).​​ 


This passage of scripture lets us know a few things; the first of which is the importance of having the right attitude when we give. The motive of the heart means everything to God.​​ 


Secondly, it says that He causes​​ His grace to abound toward us so that we will have sufficiency in​​ all​​ things and for every necessity, including the things​​ we do to build the kingdom of God. He​​ has promised​​ to bring seed into our hands and to multiply the seed we sow, causing us to live in a state of perpetual abundance!​​ 

We​​ have been blessed with the ability to use​​ our faith to take hold of the abundance that Jesus has already provided​​ to overcome financial hardship.​​ Let’s boldly declare what God says about our finances and step into the abundance and overflow God intended for us to walk in!​​ While the world is trying to figure out what to do​​ in times of crisis, we’ll be praising God for what​​ He​​ has​​ already​​ done!



Confessions for Overcoming Financial Hardship


My God has supplied all of my needs, not the government or anyone else​​ (Philippians 4:19).


I refuse to fear when circumstances indicate failure. I have covenant promises from God that tell me that I prosper in all that I do​​ (Deuteronomy 30:9).


Whatever I bind on earth is bound in Heaven. I bind financial lack in the name of Jesus, because there is no lack in Heaven. I am free from the curse of lack​​ (Matthew 18:18).​​ 


Whatever I loose on earth is loosed in Heaven. I loose abundance, blessing and increase over every area of my life, in Jesus’ name​​ (Matthew 18:18).


I have been given authority over all the ability of Satan. I take my authority over poverty, lack and insufficiency and command you to flee from me, in Jesus’ name​​ (Luke 10:19).


I have full confidence in the word of God concerning my​​ finances.​​ I spend my days in prosperity and my years in pleasures (Job 36:11).


My eyes are opened and I have full revelation of everything that I am entitled to as a child of God, a joint heir with Christ, and as a believer​​ (Ephesians 1:18).


Christ has redeemed me form the curse of the law of sin and death; therefore I am redeemed from poverty, lack, and insufficiency​​ (Galatians 3:13).​​ 


I am a giver. I sow generously and I reap generously​​ (2 Corinthians 9:6).​​ 


No weapon formed against my finances shall prosper​​ (Isaiah 54:17).


Jesus became poor that I might become rich; therefore I declare that I am prosperous, rich, and wealthy​​ (2 Corinthians 8:9).


I have all sufficiency in all things. I am blessed to be a blessing. I am a blessing to my family, my friends, to strangers, and to the kingdom of God​​ (2 Corinthians 9:8).



Overcoming Marital Problems


Satan​​ is a thief who is out to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10), and he​​ desperately wants to contain us in the area of relationships, especially in marital relationships. He wants to cause breakdown in our marriages​​ and prevent them from being as God intended them to be -​​ heaven on earth. This is a part of his plan to destroy the family unit. Why does he want to destroy the family​​ unit? The Bible says one can put a thousand to flight, and two can put ten thousand to flight (Deuteronomy 32:30).​​ He knows that a husband and wife team is a great threat to the kingdom of darkness.


Another reason Satan seeks to destroy Godly relationships, in particular marriages, is because there​​ are​​ so many​​ other negative​​ effects​​ from​​ when a​​ husband and wife are in strife: Children are​​ negatively affected - sometimes for the rest of their lives​​ ​​ and emotions,​​ ministries and careers are​​ negatively affected.​​ 


However, we cannot be contained when we abide in God’s Word. Commit to operate in unconditional love, pray for your spouse, and bind the enemy when he tries to raise his ugly head in your home.​​ Don’t allow him to steal, kill, or destroy in any area of your life, especially your marriage.



Confessions for Husbands


In the name of Jesus, I declare that I am a powerful man of God. I am righteous, godly, faithful, loving, patient, and meek (1 Timothy 6:11).


The Word of God has perfected me, and I am thoroughly equipped for every good work. I am thoroughly equipped to have a strong, good marriage (2 Timothy 3:17).


The Word of God is a lamp unto my feet and a light to direct my path. I go to the Word for wisdom and guidance in every area of my life, including my marriage (Psalm 119:105).


I have the mind of Christ and the wisdom of God is within me. I deal wisely in all the affairs of my life; I deal wisely in my marriage​​ (1 Corinthians 2:16).

The Holy Spirit leads me along the path of the good life, which includes a good marriage (Ephesians 2:10).

I am the head of my home, and I lead it in Godliness and temperance.


I exercise the fruit of the spirit; I have love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, goodness, and self-control​​ (Galatians 5:22).


No weapon formed against my marriage shall prosper; every tongue that rises against my family in judgment I condemn​​ (Isaiah 54:17).


Jesus is Lord over my marriage; my wife and I are of one flesh. The Lord​​ has joined​​ us together;​​ therefore no man can separate us​​ (Mark 10:9).​​ 


I have unconditional love for my wife. I have complete and total patience with her. My household is free from strife, bitterness, envy, jealousy, complaining, hatred, malice, slander, offense, and unforgiveness. I walk in love with my wife and I am a blessing to her​​ (Ephesians 4:31; 1 Peter 2:1).


I honor my wife; I am faithful and loving toward her.


I think and speak the best of my wife at all times. I support her, respect her, and I love her as I love myself.


We walk in the blessing and favor of the Lord. Our marriage is prosperous and blessed because the Lord is with us, and He has perfected everything that concerns us​​ (Psalm 138:8).



Confessions for Wives


In the name of Jesus, I declare that I am a virtuous woman of God. I am a woman of moral excellence and​​ strength (Proverbs 31).


I reverentially fear the Lord. I desire God’s favor on my life more than that of man​​ (John 12:43).​​ 


I manage my household with Godly wisdom; I have the mind of Christ and I deal wisely in all the affairs of my life, including my marriage​​ (1 Corinthians 2:16).


My husband confidently trusts me. He relies on me for wise counsel​​ (Proverbs 31:11).


I exercise the fruit of the spirit toward my family; I have love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, goodness, and self-control​​ (Galatians 5:22).


No weapon formed against my marriage shall prosper; every tongue that rises against my family in judgment I condemn​​ (Isaiah 54:17).

Confessions for​​ Salvation of a Spouse


Lord God, I thank you that​​ you provided salvation for​​ ­­­­___________​​ at the cross. Jesus paid the price for​​ ­­­­___________​​ ‘s​​ salvation by the​​ shedding of His blood, and the Word says that because the Son​​ set​​ ​​ ­­­­___________​​ free,​​ ­he/she​​ is free indeed​​ (John 8:36).


I declare that​​ ​​ ­­­­___________​​ is free from​​ the lies of the enemy. He/she is free from​​ any voice of pride, unbelief, or deception that would attempt to blind his/her eyes to his/her​​ need for a​​ Savior.​​ ­­­­___________​​ ‘s eyes are open to the truth of the gospel, and the Truth makes him/her​​ free​​ (Ephesians 1:18; John 8:32).


­­­­___________​​ is a powerful man/woman​​ of God. He/she​​ is walking in God's divine plan for his/her​​ life, which is to prosper him/her​​ and not​​ for harm, it is a plan for a hope and a future​​ (Jeremiah 29:11).


­­­­___________​​ is the righteousness of God in Christ.​​ ­­­­He/she​​ has a heart that longs to know the Lord​​ (2 Corinthians 5:21; Jeremiah 24:7).


As for me and my household, we serve the Lord. I serve the Lord, my husband/wife​​ serves the Lord,​​ and my​​ children serve the Lord. Jesus is Lord over our family, and​​ ​​ ­­­­___________​​ and I are of one mind in Christ Jesus​​ (Joshua 24:15; Philippians 2:2).​​

I declare that​​ ​​ ­­­­___________​​ is saved​​ NOW, and has come to a knowledge of the Truth, in Jesus' name​​ (1 Timothy 2:4).



Godly Parenting


The Bible​​ makes it clear that children are gifts and a heritage from God,​​ “Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord, and the​​ fruit of the womb is his reward​​ (Psalm 127:3).​​ One of the definitions of the Hebrew word​​ heritage​​ is​​ assignment.​​ Did you know that children are assignments given by God? That verse literally says, “Lo, children are an assignment of the Lord”.​​ This adds tremendous value to children and changes the way in which they should be viewed.


Do you remember when you had a project in assigned to you in school? You were probably careful to plan beforehand, then gather your supplies, put the project together, and make sure it was ready for presentation on the day it was due. In fact, that project often made up a large percentage of your final grade and took up a vast amount of time.


Children are​​ infinitely​​ more important than those old school assignments because​​ God​​ has given them to us.​​ The wonderful thing is, He​​ has​​ already given us the answers to the assignment! He has​​ equipped us​​ with all the wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and ability we will ever need to raise our children in a way that pleases Him. When we declare what God says in His Word over our children, He is able to get involved, not only​​ because the​​ Holy Spirit​​ will have access to​​ lead​​ and direct​​ them, but​​ we will also receive​​ direction and wisdom in how to love, nurture, and guide them.


As parents, we are assigned to​​ love,​​ build up, train, invest in, and shape our children in preparation for the future God has for them. When they are finally ready to leave home they will be equipped to follow God and fulfill His will for their lives.
