Declare the Word (The Word W.O.R.K.S.)

I read this very inspirational post entitled “We Believe What We Tell Ourselves”. It was all about positive internal messages we give ourselves, and how they alter our view of ourselves. This was good stuff, but it fell short of being God stuff. Words, indeed, are powerful. They can change your mind and shape your future. But God’s Word is alive and active (Hebrews 4:12). It’s more than just words on a page. God’s Words are life-giving and life-changing.

It is so important that we immerse ourselves in the Word of God. We do this in many ways. Reading, listening, studying, and writing the Word are all methods to engage deeply into the scriptures. We should also practice declaring God’s Word!

Declaring God’s Word is to speak the Word aloud. Yes, aloud. Why? When we speak the Word, we bring to mind what God’s Word says about our circumstances. This helps to banish fear and doubt.
We proclaim victory over the enemy, we declare that he is a defeated foe. We also develop a habit that can help shape our words and our responses. When we are faced with challenges, we instinctively respond with the Truth, rather than with worry, fear, and apprehension. As we speak the Truth, it will become more and more real to us.

I know many will say, “But what about how I feel?” Or “This seems fake to me.” Declaring God’s Word is not a magic formula that ignores the facts. However, when you Declare God’s Word, you choose God’s Truth over facts.

So join me this month as I declare God’s Word. During the month of July we will be declaring God’s Word, over ourselves, our children, our spouses, our churches, our jobs, and so much more. Each day we will be posting our daily declarations. However, on Fridays we will post audio of the week’s declaration.

How many of you will step out on your faith and join the challenge? Declare the Word!

I hope you decide to join us in this challenge! Invite your friends, too.

It’s simple to follow along. Just like our Facebook page and follow us at http://sparrowssongministries.com. We can’t wait to declare God’s Word with you!

Walk This Way

 

But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked. 1 John 2:5,6 To read more, click here

How do we know that we are truly abiding in Him? The surest way to know is that we walk like Jesus walked. Christ’s life is an example to us. His life was always about His Father’s business (Luke 2:49). He walked in constant fellowship and dependence upon His Father, and sought to please Him in all that He said and did (John 12:49; John 14:31).

Because of Christ’s obedience, even to the the point of death, we have life! (Phil. 2:8) And with this life, we should do all that we can to please Him. This begins by allowing God’s Word to transform us. Hear, receive, obey, and apply the Word to your life and you will begin to see change. This is how we walk in the Fruit of the Spirit. This is how we grow in love. When we obey God’s Word and allow God’s love to be perfected in us, we will walk in love towards our fellowman and will abstain from the sinful things of the world. Love and obedience are manifested in our lives when we walk like Jesus.

This is not to physically imitate His movements, but to be an imitator of His actions, closely observing the Word of God to know what He did, how He responded, how He obeyed, how He loved, and how He served. Once you know what He did, do what He did! He has set the path before us, so we cannot go wrong if we walk like Him.
