It is written: I believed; therefore I have spoken. With that same spirit of faith we also believe and therefore speak. (2 Corinthians 4:13, NIV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
I know a man who was believing to pay his house off. It was a standard 30-year mortgage, and he had 23 years left. In the natural, there was no way he could do it. But he was bold enough to say, Father, I want to thank You that You are Jehovah Jireh; the Lord my provider. I know my job is not my source. You are my source. It may look impossible, but I know You can do the impossible.
Several years ago, he received an inheritance from a family member that he had never met before. He didnt even know they were related. He was able to not only pay his house off, but he paid a friend's house off as well. What was that? Explosive blessings!
Friend, when you believe God, you position yourself for a miracle. When you obey His commands, you set yourself under the open windows of heaven. When you declare His Word, you activate His power. Keep standing, keep believing, keep speaking and see the victory and blessing He has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for Your Word which is alive and powerful! I set my mind on Your promises and choose to declare what You say about me. Thank You for Your faithfulness as I move forward in the good plan You have for me in Jesus name. Amen.
