A declaration is a formal statement or announcement, designed to remind yourself and others around you who you are and what defines you. As Christians, we have been given promise after promise in Scripture, but many times these promises can be lost in the noise of everyday life. The following 10 declarations are designed for you to audibly declare out loud, reminding yourself of God’s promises and proclaiming to yourself and the world that the truth of God’s Word powerfully applies in your life. Here are 10 powerful declarations in the pages that follow that can define and transform your life. Proclaim them regularly, speak them out loud, declare them again and again until its truths seep into your mind and change you from the inside out.
Before you proclaim these declarations, the most important decision you can ever make is to trust Jesus with your life: Dear Jesus, I acknowledge that You have not always been first in my life. My sin has separated me from God. Jesus, I believe that You are the Son of God. I believe that You died on the cross to pay the penalty for my sins, and I believe that You rose from the dead on the third day. I am a sinner and I need forgiveness and I know that I cannot save myself. I invite You into my life, I ask You to forgive my sins, to make me right with God and to secure my eternal destiny in heaven. I place the full weight of my trust in what You did on the cross for me, and I commit my life to follow You. I thank You for this precious gift of salvation and for the Holy Spirit that now lives inside of me! Amen.
