Greet This Day



I set the course of my life today with my words:

I declare today that I will not be defeated, discouraged, depressed, or disappointed today.

I am the head, I have insight, I have wisdom, I have ideas, I have authority.

I exercise my authority today with my words and I decree a thing and it is so.

Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4) . . . the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead, lives in me . . . (Romans 8:11)

As I speak words today, they come to pass (Job 22:28); they go before me, they bring the things to pass that I desire; and they stop all attacks, assaults, oppression, and fear from coming to my life.

God is on my side today and, therefore, I cannot be defeated.

His favor surrounds me today as a shield. (Psalm 5:12) I expect favor today from heaven and from the earth.

Jesus had favor with God and man (Luke 2:52), and as He is so am I on this earth. (1 John 4:17)

Therefore, I have favor today with God and man. I expect and receive favor in my home, favor in my job, favor in my business, favor in my ministry, favor with my finances, favor in every deal I am involved in.

I have the wisdom of God today. I will think the right thoughts, say the right words and make the right decisions in every situation I face today.

My mouth speaks wisdom and my heart is filled with understanding. (Psalm 49:3) I ask for, and receive, an abundant supply of wisdom and understanding today from God (James 1:5) . . . wisdom from above, wisdom that is pure, peaceable, gentle, unwavering, willing to yield, without hypocrisy. (James 3:17)

Wisdom and understanding are better than silver and gold and nothing I desire can compare with them; therefore, I make it my ambition and desire to have understanding and wisdom; therefore I know I will have all of the other desires of my heart. (Proverbs 8:10–11)

My words go before me in securing my divine health and healing . . .

I will not be sick today; I will not be sad today; I will not be broke today; I will not be confused today.

I have health today; I have joy today; I have all the money I need in the name of Jesus. My steps are ordered by the Lord . . . (Psalm 37:23)

I have a covenant with God and by the blood of Jesus I release my divine protection and divine provision.

My angels are carrying out the Word of God on my behalf.

I receive supernatural strength and encouragement from God and my angels. Angels carry out the Word of God and every word that I speak that lines up with the Word of God is being carried out by angels, even now as I speak. (Psalm 103:20)

I expect to have divine appointments today, to run into the right people, and to be delivered from the wrong people.

Any adversity, attack, accidents and tragedies that were headed my way are diverted right now in Jesus’ name.

I speak to the raging waters in my life:
Peace, be still.
I say to my emotions: peace, be still.
I say to my mind: peace, be still.
I say to my body: peace, be still.
I say to my home: peace, be still.
I say to my family: peace, be still.

Now I speak to:
every mountain of fear
every mountain of discouragement
every mountain of stress
every mountain of depression
every mountain of lack and insufficiency

And I say, “Be removed and cast into the sea in Jesus’ name!” (Mark 11:23) I expect the best day of my life spiritually, emotionally, relationally and financially today in Jesus’ name!



I refuse to throw away my confidence no matter what I see.

I will not allow what I see to discourage me.

I will not allow what I see to pull me down and to make me throw away my confidence.

I make a decision that I will not throw away my confidence, because my confidence has a great reward. (Hebrews 10:35)

It may take a while, but I have patience. For in a little while, what He promised will manifest because I am the just, and I live by faith and because I live by faith, I will not shrink back. Because when I shrink back, God has no pleasure in me and my number one goal is to be pleasing to God. (Hebrews 10:38)

I maintain, therefore, an attitude of faith, a spirit of faith, a position of faith that is always pleasing to God. And, therefore, the manifestation will come, because I maintain my position of pleasing God by using my faith and holding fast to my confession and never letting it go. (Hebrews 11:6)

I will not draw back.

I will not shrink back, but I will have faith until the end, until the outcome, until what I believe is what I see. If I don't see it, that won't change what I believe. Because the reason I'm believing is first and foremost to be pleasing to God, then to see the manifestation.

The manifestation will come when I'm pleasing to God. And I choose to hold fast to faith, to confidence in this Word, and I will not let go.

I will not give up.

I will not let go of my confession no matter what I see, no matter what I feel, no matter what other people say or do, no matter how many people shrink back.

A thousand may fall on my side and ten thousand at my right hand, but it shall not approach me. It's not coming near my dwelling place because I'm holding fast to my confession. (Psalm 91:7)

• I confess I'm blessed.
• I confess I'm healed.
• I confess I have wisdom.
• I confess I'm happy.
• I confess I have the money I need.
• I confess I have the job I need.
• I confess I'm a soul winner.
• I confess I have the right answer in every situation.
• I confess I'm the head and not the tail.
• I confess I will not give up.
• I will not let go of my confession of faith.
• I will not be discouraged when I don't see results. Therefore, I refuse to throw away my confidence.
• I will not change my confession.
• My love will not grow cold.
• I abide in love.
• I remain in love.

God loves me and I love others and, therefore, my faith works. (Galatians 5:6)

And as long as my faith is working, my giving continues.

As long as my giving continues, my harvest is on the way.

As long as my harvest is on the way, bitterness cannot enter in and defile my roots.

My roots are healthy roots.

My roots are productive roots.

I've got the Word of God in my roots.

The Word of God is what I meditate on day and night.

And I'm like a tree firmly rooted, firmly planted in streams and rivers of living water and, therefore, I will bring forth fruit in my season.

My leaf will not wither.

So, I make the confession that bitterness will not be rooted in my life.

In whatever I do, I will prosper. (Psalm 1:2–3)

My harvest will not stop because my giving will not stop, because my faith will not fail, because my love will not grow cold, because my confession will not change, because I will not throw away my confidence.

I declare today that death and life are in the power of my tongue and I use my tongue to produce the life of God in my body. (Proverbs 18:21)

My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and I glorify God in it by walking in divine healing and divine health. (I Corinthians 6:19)

According to Romans 8:11, the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives in me and gives life to my mortal body. I realize that I will be given an immortal body when the Lord returns, but in the meantime I receive the Life of God in my mortal body!

Jesus Himself was pierced for my transgressions, crushed for my iniquities, the chastening for my well being fell upon Him and with His stripes I am healed! (Isaiah 53:5)

Through the cross of Jesus, the Lord has removed all sickness from me; He will not allow any of the harmful diseases of Egypt to be upon me, according to Deuteronomy 7:15; and according to Exodus 15:26, He is my Healer.

No curse of sickness and disease can dwell in my body or in my life, because according to Galatians 3:13 and 14, Christ redeemed me from the curse of the law, having become a curse for me. For cursed is one who hangs on a tree; therefore, the blessing of Abraham comes to me now in Jesus' name!

And according to Proverbs 26:2, a curse without cause cannot alight. There is no cause for a curse to light in my life, since Christ redeemed me and became that curse for me; therefore, I have divine healing and divine health in my body.

The Lord has sent His word and healed me and delivered me from destruction. (Psalm 107:20)

I am free from every sickness, disease, and calamity that would try to affect my body and my health.

I bless the Lord with all that is in me and I forget none of His benefits. He pardons all my iniquities and heals all my diseases. (Psalm 103:1-3) In fact, they are not my diseases anymore! I am healed by the stripes of Jesus. (Isaiah 53:5)

I will not take into my body a deadly or debilitating disease. For no evil can come near my dwelling place, nor can any plague come near my tent. (Psalm 91:10)

Sickness and disease are evil and, therefore, they cannot come near my dwelling place.

My body is my dwelling place. It is an instrument that I present to God as a living sacrifice. (Romans 12:1)

My spirit dwells in my body and the Holy Spirit dwells in my body. I have the life of God in me. I speak to my body now in the name of Jesus, and I command it to come in line and stay in line with the Word of God.

I declare that I have divine health from the top of my head to the soles of my feet and I refuse to accept so much as a cold in my body. Every germ, bacteria, and virus of sickness must die right now in the name of Jesus.

When sickness even gets near my body, it flees. The wicked flee when no one is pursuing and sickness is wicked. (Proverbs 28:1) It flees from my body. I submit to God, resist the devil and he (and all that he authored) must flee.

Now, I declare that Jesus went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil. He healed every manner of sickness and every manner of disease. (Acts 10:38)

According to Matthew 4:23 and 24, Jesus went about teaching, preaching, and healing. And the news about Him went out into all Syria, and they brought to Him all who were ill, taken with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, paralytics, and He healed them.

According to Matthew 8:16, when evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon possessed, and He cast out the spirits with a Word, and healed all who were ill; in order that what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, saying, "He Himself took away our infirmities and carried away our diseases!"

Now, if Jesus did all those things in Matthew then He still does them today, because He is the same yesterday, today, and forever, according to Hebrews 13:8. He is no respecter of persons. If He healed them all yesterday, He has to heal them all today!

In fact, according to John 14:13, Matthew 18:19, and John 15:7, He said if I ask anything in His name, He will do it, that if two agreed about anything they ask, the Father will do it, and that if I abide in Him and His Words abide in me, I can ask anything I wish and it will be done.

Therefore, I ask for supernatural healing and health to come upon me and overtake my very physical and emotional life in every way in the name of Jesus.

I thank God that I have received His supernatural health in my body. It is a fact that I am healed by the stripes of Jesus through the covenant blood of Jesus, and I refuse to doubt for one second that I am what God says I am—healed. (Isaiah 53:5; I Peter 2:24)

According to Mark 11:23-24, I can say to the mountain to be removed and it must obey me; therefore, I speak to every symptom of sickness and pain in my body and I command it to be removed and cast into the sea. I do not doubt, but I believe that those things which I say are granted to me in the name of Jesus!

According to Mark 16:15, these signs follow them that believe, I cast out demons in the name of Jesus, I speak in new tongues, if I drink any deadly poison or am attacked by a serpent, it shall not harm me. And I can lay hands on the sick and they shall fully recover.

I declare full recovery over my body and I exercise the authority that Jesus gave me in Luke 10:19 when He said, "Behold I give you authority to trample upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy (which includes sickness, disease, and infirmity) and nothing shall by any means injure you." Therefore, nothing shall my any means injure, harm, or defeat me.

I give attention to the Word of God. I incline my ear to His sayings. I do not let them depart from my sight. I keep them in the midst of my heart. For they are life to me, and health and healing to all my whole body! (Proverbs 4:20-22)

Now, I declare that my immune system is strong; that faith in the Word of God is my shield and no sickness or disease can live in my blood-bought, faith-fought body in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

And He healed them all! (Matthew 8:16; Matthew 12:15; Luke 6:19)



Romans 10:6-10

Colossians 1:22-23M

I Corinthians 1:30
Since I have been raised with Christ to a new life, I aim at and seek the rich eternal treasures that are above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. I set my mind, and keep it set, on what is above, not on the things that are on the earth. For, as far as this world is concerned I have died, and my new real life is hidden with Christ in God.

Colossians 3:5, 8
Therefore, I have considered the members of my body dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed. I put away and rid myself of anger, rage, bad feelings toward others, curses, slander, and abusive speech from my mouth.

Colossians 3:12
I let my speech at all times be gracious, pleasant, and winsome, seasoned with salt, so that I may never be at a loss to know how I ought to answer anyone who puts a question to me. I clothe myself, as God's chosen one, purified, holy, and well loved by God Himself, by putting on behavior marked by tenderhearted pity and mercy, kind feelings, a lowly opinion of myself, gentle ways, and patience, which is tireless and long suffering, and has the power to endure whatever comes with good temper.

Philippians 4:5
I let all men know and perceive and recognize my unselfishness, my considerateness, and my forbearing spirit.

Ephesians 5:15-16
I look carefully how I walk. I live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as a wise, sensible, intelligent person, making the very most of the time, buying up each opportunity because the days are evil. Therefore, I am not vague, thoughtless, and foolish, but I understand and firmly grasp what the will of the Lord is.

Philippians 4:13
I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me. I am ready for anything, and equal to anything through Him who infuses inner strength into me. I am self sufficient in Christ's sufficiency.

Philippians 1:9
I thank You, Lord, that my love abounds still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that I approve the things that are excellent, and that I am sincere and without offense until the day of Christ.

Galatians 3:26
I am a child of God by faith in Christ Jesus.



He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, "My refuge and My fortress, My God in whom I trust!" (verse 1,2)

Father, I thank You that because I take up permanent residency in You, I live in the protection of El Shaddai, God Almighty, whose power no foe can withstand!

For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper; and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark. (verse 3,4)

Because I say with my mouth, "You are my refuge," then You will deliver me from everything designed to hurt me, my family, and my loved ones!

You will not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day; of the pestilence that stalks in darkness nor of the destruction that lays waste at noon. (verse 5,6)

Because I say with my mouth, "You are my God," I will not fall, for You are able to make me stand no matter what is going on around me!

No evil will befall you, nor will any plague come near your tent. For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in their hands, lest you strike your foot against a stone. You will tread upon the lion and cobra, the young lion and the serpent you will trample down. (verse 10-13)

Father I thank You that my trust is in You and Your Word. I trust in You. I attach myself to You. In You I have divine protection. No evil will come upon me; no plague, calamity, or disaster can come near my body, my home, my finances or my possessions. In Jesus Christ I have authority over all the power of the enemy!

Because he has loved Me, therefore, I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high because he has known My Name. He will call upon Me and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him; with a long life I will satisfy him. And let him behold My salvation. (verse 14-16)

Father, I thank You that You are with me in trouble and You deliver me. I walk securely in an insecure world because You set me on high and because You said You will never leave me nor forsake me, no never! In Jesus name, Amen!

What a promise from God in Isaiah 54:17!

I want to show you how this promise is more real today than it has ever been so you can walk in God’s divine protection plan in these last days.

The Bible says that the devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy. (John 10:10) And while he continues to try to bring death and destruction to your life and mine, he has no power to succeed!

Jesus says to you and me in Luke 10:19, “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, and NOTHING SHALL BY ANY MEANS HURT YOU.”

I like the word NOTHING here. It is similar to the verse in Isaiah 54, where He says, “NO weapon formed against you shall prosper.” It is all-inclusive and definite! It covers every aspect of our lives: whether it be weapons of terrorism, weapons of fear, weapons of sickness and disease, weapons of debt, or weapons of emotional pressure—NO weapon can prosper!

Now, let me show you how this promise becomes real in our lives.

1. First, we must understand God’s previous covenant.

In Exodus 12 the children of Israel are commanded by God to kill a lamb and put the blood over the doorposts of their houses so that when the plague of death came to strike down the first born of each house, it would PASS OVER them. “…And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you…” (Exodus 12:13). God honored the blood of a lamb. He brought divine protection to the children of Israel through the blood of the PASSOVER lamb. This is understood as a blood covenant.

2. Next, we need to understand God’s new covenant, which applies to us.

In I Corinthians 5:7, Jesus Christ is called “our Passover Lamb.” So He is to us what the Passover lamb of Exodus was to the children of Israel: divine protection and deliverance from plagues, destruction, and bondage.

3. Then, we need to understand the difference between these Passover lambs, or these covenants.

In Hebrews 8:6, it says that Jesus has obtained a “more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a BETTER COVENANT, which was established on BETTER PROMISES.”

Notice, the differences here between the Old Covenant, which was very powerful and effective, versus the New Covenant:

a. The New Covenant is MORE EXCELLENT.

When I go to the store and see a product like laundry detergent that says it is NEW and IMPROVED, it means that it has to do at least what the OLD PRODUCT did AND THEN SOME. When we accept that we have the Blood of Jesus as our PASSOVER, we must understand that the New Covenant will do at least as much as the old one did, AND THEN SOME.

This is a BETTER covenant, with BETTER promises, established by BETTER blood; therefore, you and I can expect BETTER results!

The children of Israel enjoyed supernatural protection from the enemies of death and terror. They enjoyed supernatural deliverance from the most ferocious army in the world, the Egyptians. The children of Israel enjoyed the plundering of the Egyptian’s wealth, which was transferred into the hands of Israel. WE CAN ENJOY ALL OF THESE THINGS, and THEN SOME.

Now, how do we walk in this BETTER COVENANT with BETTER PROMISES?

1. We must declare it with our mouths. Romans 10:10 says, “…with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (deliverance, wholeness, protection). We must say that the blood of Jesus protects us, delivers us, and prospers us.

2. We must know that this covenant went into effect the day Jesus died on the cross. “For a testament is in force after men are dead, since it has no power at all while the testator lives” (Hebrews 9:17).

3. We must come boldly to the throne of God’s grace and make our request known to Him. “Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus” (Hebrews 10:19).

4. We must hold fast our confession of faith even when things don’t look good. “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering; for He who promised is faithful” (Hebrews 10:23).

5. We must remember this covenant by celebrating communion on a regular basis—reinforcing before ourselves, before God, and before all the devils in this world that we are under God’s divine protection through the blood of Jesus. There is a unique and magnificent power released every time you receive the body and Blood of Jesus in communion. You don’t have to wait for a special service. You can receive this right in your home.



If you feel like you’re about to lose hope and you don’t know what to do, let me encourage you. Look at 2 Corinthians 4:8–9. Paul was a man of great faith, and he says, “We are hard-pressed (troubled) on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.” All of us have felt like Paul did at one time or another. 

It says we’re troubled on every side—yet, not distressed. Being distressed is when the stress and pressure on the outside get on the inside. It is possible to have stress come against you but to not be distressed by it. 

Perplexed is not being sure of what to do. He says, “ . . .but not in despair.” Despair is when you don’t know which way to turn. Ask God and He’ll show you what to do. 

Faith doesn’t say “I never have trouble.” Faith says, “Trouble doesn’t have me.” Faith doesn’t say bad things never happen.” It says, “I’m going to win. Jesus is on my side.” 

Now in 2 Timothy 3, it says, “In the last days there will be trouble.” The devil is trying to defeat us and destroy us. First Timothy 4:1 says in the latter days some shall depart from the faith. Whenever you’re going through a trial, your faith is on trial. The devil’s trying to damage your faith. 

If you depart from the faith, then the great trouble in the last days—the hard to bear problems—will defeat you. God has provided something to handle the stress and trouble: the ability to walk by faith. 

There is no better way to get out of stress—to handle how to deal with people and problems—than to believe God. All things are possible to them who believe. In the last days trouble will come, and faith will come. The devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but Jesus came that we would have life and have it more abundantly. (John 10:10)

Look at 1 Peter 1:7. What’s on trial? Your faith is. Why? Because the devil wants your faith to fail. When your faith fails, you can’t do anything. Satan tells you: “Go ahead and put your shield of faith down. It doesn’t work anyway." He’ll try to penetrate your hope. So we need to learn how to not depart from the faith.

When you’re dealing with difficulty, stress, and discouragement, follow these steps:

1. When you haven’t seen it yet, stay in love. The Bible says, “Whom having not seen, love.” When you don’t see your miracle, you tend to stop walking in love and stop loving people. 

2. We begin to judge those that are getting their miracle: “They must have cheated to get it.” The good news is if they’ve received it, you can receive it, too. You’re going to receive it, too. Having not seen, you love. Love anyway. 

3. Stay believing. “Though now you see Him not, yet believing . . .” Keep believing even when you don’t see it. 

4. Stay rejoicing. Rejoice with joy unspeakable.

Love makes our faith work. The devil wants you to get mad. He wants you to lose hope. Stay focused on your job. Walk in love, and you’ll never fail. The devil is trying to get you in strife. He’s working overtime to create strife. 

The key to living victoriously is to stay in love even when you don’t see God—when you haven’t seen Him come through for you. 

Faith isn’t about what you’ve done or believed in the past. It’s what you believe now. Faith is now. It’s not about how you used to rejoice. Are you rejoicing now? It’s not what you said, read, or believed. It’s what you’re saying, reading, believing and doing now. 

5. People leave their first love. Love makes faith work. It causes our faith and hope to arise. Love causes us to never give up on God and what He said. I’m staying in love. I’m believing. 

We’re troubled on every side, but not crushed . . . I might be persecuted, but God never left me. 

6. Receiving the outcome of your faith. And, in the end you will receive what you were hoping for. Stay in love. Keep believing. Keep rejoicing anyway. If you stop the process, you stop the end from coming. Keep the process working so you don’t depart from the faith. Love people that aren’t lovable. Keep rejoicing, and you will receive the outcome of your faith!



Did you know there is ONE pursuit above all others that this world is after? 

More than money, more than sex, more than anything . . . it is the pursuit of the ages—it is the PURSUIT OF POWER!

In one form or another, everything this world seeks boils down to the pursuit of power. 

In Acts 8:9–24, Peter and the other apostles were experiencing signs, wonders, and miracles after the resurrection of Jesus. A wealthy man named Simon, recognized with worldly power, saw the real power of God flow through the apostles’ hands and then offered MONEY to HAVE THE POWER OF GOD. Of course, Peter, in his own subtle and soft-spoken way, responded by saying, “May your silver perish with you for thinking that you can obtain the gift of God with money!” 

So we see here that the Power of God is far more valuable than money. In fact, people often use money to obtain power. The Power we’re talking about here, however, is priceless. 

The Lord put on my heart to write you about how to release the Power of the Holy Spirit in your life every day and in every situation. 

In a sense, there’s nothing wrong with the world seeking power—it’s something God intended for us to walk in. However, He didn’t intend for us to get it the way the world does. 

True power—the power to be healed, the power over life’s circumstances, the power over our enemies, the power to have joy, peace, and prosperity—COMES FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT. 

“And you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you . . .” (Acts 1:8) The word “power” here comes from the world “dunamis”—the root word for our word, “dynamite.” It means ability, might works, miracles, strength, dominion, and authority. 

Why is it so important that we have power?

First, because every negative emotion that we face in our lives comes from a sense of powerlessness. 

For example, if we don’t feel we have the power to change something, it can cause depression. If we don’t have the power to reconcile a relationship, it can cause anger or bitterness. If we don’t have the power to get ahead, it can turn into jealousy. 

Secondly, every negative circumstance we face in life comes from this same powerlessness . . . the inability to do anything about the situation we’re in—the inability to change things.

The Holy Spirit solves our deepest need in our emotions and in our circumstances: to be free from powerlessness! 

Look at John 16:13: “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own authority; but whatever he hears He will speak; and he will tell you things to come.” 

Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we can know what is to come. Think of the benefits of knowing the things that are going to come: 

1. You will be free from fear and stress, because uncertainty is eliminated.

2. You can know what to pray about and how to pray effectively. 

3. You can change the things that the Holy Spirit shows you to change. 

4. You can help others prepare for the future by knowing what is to come. 

Often, the Holy Spirit will show us what is to come so we can pray and change it. There are certain things He is warning us of that we have power to do something about through prayer. 

The Holy Spirit is the very presence of God in our lives! When God said, “I will never leave you or forsake you,” He had His Holy Spirit in mind. The Holy Spirit is: God with us . . . God in us . . . God for us . . . God through us. 

And when He is operating in our lives the way He desires, several things happen. Let me show you some of them and then let me show you how to release His power in your life.

Six results of the presence of the Holy Spirit in your life:

1. The blessing of God in your household. (2 Samuel 6:1–11) When the Ark of God’s presence was in the house of Obed-Edom, his whole household was abundantly blessed. 

2. Supernatural guidance and fellowship with God. (Exodus 40:36–38; Exodus 25:22) 

3. The hard-to-move mountains in your life will melt like wax. (Psalm 97:5) 

4. Joy, laughter, and pleasure will be yours. (Psalm 16:11 and 21:6) 

5. Your enemies will fall and perish. (Psalm 9:3) 

6. Times of refreshing and restoration will come. (Acts 3:19–20) 

Now, how do we RELEASE THIS POWER AND PRESENCE in our everyday lives? Very simply: 

1. By our words. As we speak the Word of God out of our mouths on a regular basis, the Holy Spirit takes those words and brings them to pass. Acts 10:44 says, “While he spoke these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who were listening . . .” 

2. Pray in tongues. 1 Corinthians 14:2, Romans 8:26–27 As we pray in tongues, the Holy Spirit is strengthening us and praying God’s perfect will through our lives! The will of God in heaven penetrates and invades the earth as we pray in our heavenly language, even in the face of earthly circumstances and uncertain times. 

3. Obedience to God. Acts 5:32 says He gives the Holy Spirit to those who obey Him. Of course, we know that the Holy Spirit is a gift, but as we obey God, the Power of the Holy Spirit is released into our lives. 

4. Giving. In Acts 10:3–4, Cornelius gets the attention of God through his prayers and his continual giving of alms. It was through his giving that the Gospel was brought to his household and the non-Jewish world. It was in this chapter that Cornelius became the first Gentile believer to be filled with the Power of the Holy Spirit! As a result, and entire region of the world was opened up to the Gospel through his giving!



I declare this day that no weapon formed against me can prosper (Isaiah 54:17).

Because I am the righteousness of God, favor surrounds me as a shield; divine protection surrounds me as a shield. (Psalm 5:12) I am, therefore, in the right place at the right time.

Every attack that the devil had planned against me is diverted now in the name of Jesus. I use my words to agree with God’s Words, and, therefore, I cannot be defeated and I cannot be terrorized.

Fear has nothing in me because perfect love casts out fear according to I John 4:18. And perfect love has been shed abroad in my heart by the Holy Spirit. (Romans 5:5) Perfect Love is God Himself living in me. Therefore, fear cannot live in me because God lives in me. And if God lives in me, then love lives in me, and fear and torment cannot live in me. They cannot even come near my dwelling place.

I will fear no evil because God is with me. (Psalm 23:4) And if God is with me, demons tremble, demonic plots fail, and demonic people flee, in the name of Jesus. As the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21) I can speak the Word of God and it comes to pass. The Word coming out of my mouth is the same as the Word of God coming out of God’s mouth. He is watching over His Word to perform it (Jeremiah 1:12) and it will not return void (Isaiah 55:11).

Every time I speak God’s Word, the angels hear it and they hearken to the voice of His word; they hasten to carry out that Word and bring it to pass. (Psalm 103:20) I cannot be defeated or destroyed. In fact, every tongue that accuses me and every tongue that attacks me I condemn with my words. This is my heritage. This is my right as a child of God, made in His image, made with His dominion and authority living in me, coming forth out of my spirit through my words (Isaiah 54:17)!

I condemn right now every tongue of fear trying to speak to me, every tongue of terror, every tongue of disaster, and tragedy. I condemn every tongue of poverty and lack, every tongue of abandonment and rejection, every tongue of inferiority and defeat. I cannot be defeated because God is on my side. And if God be for me, who can be against me. (Romans 8:31)

Tribulation can’t defeat me, distress can’t defeat me, and persecution can’t defeat me. Lack and attack cannot defeat me. None of these things can separate me from the love of God according to Romans 8:35-39. None of these things can get between God and me. And if they can’t get between God and me, they cannot affect me. They cannot fulfill their demonic purpose against my life.

In fact, they cannot penetrate my shield of faith because it extinguishes every fiery dart of the wicked one. It stops every attack. It stops every weapon that was designed for my destruction. (Ephesians 6:16)

No, the devil cannot have me, my family, my church, my city, my nation, or my earth. The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof; and He has given it to the sons of men! That’s me. He has given it to me.

He has given me authority and dominion over this earth and every thing in this earth. I have authority over every serpent and scorpion and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt or harm me! (Luke 10:19)

I believe what God says and I will not be moved by what’s going on around me. Jesus rebuked the wind and the storm and they stopped. The storm obeyed Him and, therefore, it has to obey me for these reasons:

• Because as He is, so am I according to 1 John 4:17.

• Because the works that He did, He said I could do and greater works shall I do according to John 14:12.

• Because I am seated with Him in heavenly places far above all rule and principality and over every name that is named according to Ephesians 1:21 and Ephesians 2:6.

Glory to God, I cannot be defeated, I cannot be harmed, and I cannot fail. Since God did not spare His own Son, according to Romans 8:32, He will not spare anything. He will not spare His divine protection, His divine security, His divine wisdom, and His divine strength. Therefore, I receive that protection, security, wisdom and strength right now; and I act on it in the name of Jesus.

The blood of Jesus is what gives me the right to these things, just as the blood of a lamb gave divine protection and provision to the children of Israel as they were delivered out of Egypt.

And according to Hebrews 8:12, we have a better covenant than they had through the blood of Jesus, and therefore, a covenant with better blood means a better covenant. So, whatever the blood did for the children of Israel, the blood of Jesus does at least that for me, and then some!

Now I declare today that God is on my side, Jesus is Lord, and every mountain of fear, terror, and plots against me is removed right now in the name of Jesus!

I declare today that Satan has no power over my life; that every weapon of his has been defeated, that fear is cast out, that love makes my faith work and therefore I cannot fail. God’s Word cannot fail and that’s what I am made of—His Word; made in His image, after His likeness, with the power of the Holy Spirit and authority of His Words.

Therefore, by the blood of Jesus, I dwell in the secret place of the most High. I abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I say of the Lord, You are my refuge; and my fortress, my God in you I will trust.

For it is You that delivers me from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence. You cover me with Your pinions, and under Your wings I seek refuge. Your faithfulness is a shield and a bulwark.

I will not be afraid of the terror by night or the arrow that flies by day; of the pestilence that stalks in darkness or of the destruction that lays waste at noon. For a thousand shall fall at my side and ten thousand at my right hand, but it shall not approach me, my family, my church, my possessions, my body, my future, my city, or my nation. I will only look on with my eyes and see the recompense of the wicked. For I have made the Lord my refuge, even the Most High my dwelling place. No evil shall befall me, nor shall any plague come near my dwelling.

For He gives his angels charge concerning me to guard me in all my ways. They will bear me up in their hands lest I dash my foot against a stone. I shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent I shall trample down. Because I have loved Him, therefore He delivers me. He sets me securely on high, because I have known His name. I call upon Him and He answers; He is with me in trouble to rescue me and honor me. With long life He shall satisfy me and let me behold His salvation, in Jesus name. (Psalm 91)



I will greet this day with God’s love in my heart! It is the greatest secret to success no matter what life brings. It calms every storm. When the enemy persecutes my soul, love comforts it. When I face darkness, love brings light. When my heart is overwhelmed, love will inspire and encourage it! When my heart is distressed, love will remind me of God’s goodness over the years.

When I feel discouraged, love will lift my hands to the Lord, and fill my mouth with a song. I will worship Him this day with His love in my heart!

I will greet this day with God’s love in my heart! When it feels like heaven is silent, love will remind me that God knows what I’m going through. He has a plan. And He will provide for my every need.

I will greet this day with God’s love in my heart! Love will lead me. Love will direct me. Love will inspire me. Love will heal me. Love will fill me. Love will revive me.

I will greet this day with God’s love in my heart! Love will deliver me from my enemies. It will protect me in times of storm. Because of God’s love today, all those who seek to hurt me will be stopped, for love makes my shield of faith work!

I will love all whom I come in contact with today. I will love the weak and make them strong. I will love the inspired and be inspired by them. I will love the empty, and help them be filled. I will love the filled, and they will overflow! I will love the broken and they will be healed.

I will greet this day with God’s love in my heart, and it will quench all darts of the wicked one. I will confront everyone I face with love. It will shine through my eyes, bring a smile to my face, and bring waves of peace through my voice. It will lower people’s defenses and empower them to experience God’s presence!

I will greet this day with God’s love in my heart! Because He loves me, I will love myself. I will love others. And I will love life, no matter what I face! From this moment forward, fear and hate leave my body and my mind. Fear and hate leave my family and my home, in Jesus’ Name!
