Release The Power!

January 1, 2013

Happy New Year! You are invited to make declarations of God’s Word over your life instead of New Year’s resolutions. In this way instead of promising yourself that you will do something, you are releasing the power of God’s Word to work in your life.

For the next seven days, I will share seven verses from the Bible. Declare the Word out loud releasing it into the atmosphere. Keep declaring God’s Word until what is spoken in the Spirit manifests itself in the natural. Sure, it sounds too strange to be true. But it is. God’s Word works and can work for you. Go to the listen section on the home page and download the Declare God’s Word introduction.


A little girl in our neighborhood was trying out the new bike she got for Christmas training wheels and all. As she wobbled down the sidewalk, she shouted to her father “Look at me! Look at me!” Her father promptly gave her a standing ovation.

All of us, whether we are children or adults want to be noticed. It’s human. We desire people to affirm our achievements and gifts in life. We enjoy being praised for doing good things, being listened to, getting hugs and attention. Sometimes these things happen and sometimes they don’t.

When our value and worth is not appreciated it can create stress and anxiety. One failure can end up defining who we are. A low self-esteem can even get in the way of making strong relationships or lead to not trying anything at all.

This year turn negative feedback aside with God’s Word. You are loved. You are accepted. You are God’s masterpiece to do good things.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. called for a time when “…all men will respect the dignity and worth of human personality”. There is no time like the present.

Live forward this year. If no one encourages you, learn to encourage yourself in God’s Word.

My New Year’s Declaration

I am God’s masterpiece; I will do the good works that God has planned in advance for me to do!

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (NIV)
