Did you know that as a believer in Christ, your words have the power to activate the kingdom of God? Job 22:28 says, “You shall decree a thing and it shall be established for you.” By agreeing with this promise in the bible and speaking the word of God as decrees over your life you are activating the will of God over your life. 

Let’s learn how to decree and declare in prayer.

Activating God’s Promises Through Decrees Based On Job 22:28

When we partner with God our personal growth explodes. God already knows our problems and He has the solution. Our job is to seek Him to find it. Let’s take a deeper look at Job 22:28. 

You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light [of God’s favor] shall shine upon your ways.

Job 22:28, Amplified

Decreeing Your God-Given Destiny  

Let’s pray, decree, and step into a new realm of faith with Jesus. The first step is coming into agreement with the word of God and the second step is decreeing the promises of God that are our inheritance as believers in Christ. Decreeing God’s word is a form of prayer.

Let’s look at the promise in Job 22:28 that comes along with these two steps. Once you believe, decree, and receive then the light of God’s favor will shine upon your ways. 

Establishing in your heart a firm decision to agree with and believe the promises of God makes your heart ready to decree scripture over your life. As you decree you are positioning yourself to receive the fruit of your decrees. 

Psalm 139 speaks of how deeply God knows every one of us. In verse 16, David says that God has a book written for each one of us that includes all the days that are appointed for us. 

Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written the days that were appointed for me, when as yet there was not one of them [even taking shape].

Psalm 139:16, Amplified

As you decree God’s word over your life you are activating your book that was written for you by God. This book is your God-given destiny. As we learn the word of God and His promises for us, we begin to uncover the pages of our book. 

Choose Your Words Wisely

Your words have significant power to prosper you or hinder you. God has given us free will and that includes what we speak. 

I want to encourage you to use your words wisely. Think before you speak, my friends. This is a lesson I have had to learn several times but I’m getting better at it as time goes on. 

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it and indulge it will eat its fruit and bear the consequences of their words.

Proverbs 18:21, Amplified

Now that we know we have a book in heaven with our appointed days in it and that we have power over our destiny by the words we speak, let’s start decreeing and declaring! God’s word is so incredibly powerful. Let’s stand in agreement with our King and partner with Him for His will to be done.

Decree: Speak, Believe, And You Will Receive

Say these decrees aloud. I encourage you to speak with authority as you exercise your God-given right to release God’s supernatural power over your life. As you speak and believe with faith that you will receive you are opening yourself up to the supernatural realm of Jesus, where nothing is impossible.  

Living with God is never dull my friends! As we learn these truths together, let’s speak our future into being. It’s time to decree!
