As we are working towards the release of the second book in this prayer series, 100 daily declarations, we thought we would share this version with everyone. Upon launching it in December 2013, it was widely distributed via online stores as well as via email upon request.
As with everything else that we produce, we are keen to share regardless of whether individuals can pay for the book or not. None of this is profit oriented. Everything that came from book sales was reinvested in sending out free printed copies as well as maintaining this website by renewing the domain and hosting. Freely we have received, and freely we must give. This is our gift to you, 100 Daily Declarations Volume 1, A word a day keeps the devil at bay!
This book is dedicated firstly to Pastor Grant and Chantelle Farah, whose guidance and love has sown seed in many young lives across the world, and some in this ministry. May the Lord continue to use you mightily.
Second but most importantly to the Almighty God who essentially wrote this book, and allowed us to be his vessels in this work. Last but not least to all individuals who have allowed God to use them to make this book a success. The Lord will not forget you!
When Don told me that he was going to write a devotional together with the Prayer Relay Movement, I could not help but get excited because this is exactly what this generation needs, but when he asked me to write the foreword, I really felt out of my depth and yet honoured to give my input.
It would not be a lie to say that one of the things that often troubles old and new believers alike, is the area of reading the Bible. We cannot pretend that with all the demands that the world places on us, it is easy to keep a steady pattern on reading the Word. In fact, the most common question I face in ministry is “How, when, and where do I read the Bible?” and this question no doubt has plagued us all at some stage.
There are different guides we have come across but all of these soon fade away unless we have a steady reading plan. Even so, there are moments we read something but fail to link it to our lives or get something beyond the literal meaning of the Scriptures. Have you ever read a verse and then heard someone else share the same verse and thought to yourself “Wow, how come I did not get this when I read?” If you have been there then this is THE devotional for you.
What makes this devotional even more appealing and relevant is that it was birthed in the hearts of young servants of God who have made God their centre and their core. It is amazing to see that where others have chosen to pursue the world, there are some who have chosen to pursue the Word.
The zeal, the passion, the love is so contagious you can literally feel it and see it as you prayerfully meditate on each devotion. I always say it is not that great vessels of God have vast amounts of revelation in them but instead they have opened themselves up for the God of Revelation to reveal Himself through them and this is true of this devotional.
The Prayer Relay Movement team did not write anything of their own wisdom or ability, but they were moved and spurred on by God. I don’t know about you but that’s something I want to hear in this day and age! Something straight from the heart of God, something that has not been manipulated to get a specific response, something that is timeless, relevant and spoken in love
To the believer who never really liked reading essays or books, this devotional will be a breath of fresh air because each devotion is designed for the Christian on the go. It manages to capture your mind and spirit in no more than five minutes yet has an impact to keep you going for the day ahead.
Think of it as an energy fix, when you are down and under with no desire to go on with your walk, one devotion will set you back on track and give you that zest to go another day. In no way is this devotion a substitute for the Bible but it makes an impeccable aid to studying the Bible. It gives the ‘alternate’ view we so often miss due to our own biases in reading the Word.
We live in perilous times, times where many have sought to rely on man, or their wisdom but if you do not have the Word of God in your life, it is easy for you to be misled and live without purpose. Others indeed may trust in chariots and horses but I dare you to be those few that depend on God and His Word.
I am often reminded of when Jesus was tempted in the wilderness. If you look at that instance, Jesus did not bind the devil when he was being tempted, he didn’t start speaking in tongues, He did not call on His pastor or whoever but He replied boldly and consistently: IT IS WRITTEN.
When we live in the Word, we too can say “IT IS WRITTEN” when we face challenges but that can only happen if we read and meditate on the Word. This is the first step to that and it may not be as easy as I make it sound but this devotional will change the way you view Scripture if you keep at it.
The Church needs to enter into alignment and agreement with God’s Word because that is His will. If we can walk with God (through His Word) then we surely can live the life He intended for us with no limits, no boundaries and no regrets.
You are about to be blessed out of your socks and challenged by the truth of the Word of God hence this devotional is a must have and a must read for every believer regardless of how long you have been a Christian or how often you read the Bible. It is THE quintessential Bible guide for the 21st Century Believer.
What are you still waiting for? Dig in!
Pastor Paul C Kaseke
The devil lays like a roaring lion, looking for a soul to devour. A great vessel of the Lord who I dearly respect recently pointed out to me that the devils in fact “lays like” a roaring lion. He in fact is not a lion. If you get nothing else out of this, get this. The devil recognises the strength of the lion (The lion of the tribe of Judah), that is Christ. For this reason he himself pretends to be a lion.
1 Peter 5:8
King James Version (KJV)
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
A lion’s word is his roar. The word of God is his roar. At the sound of that word, knees bow, winds calm and troubles subside. Today you and I wield that power. That is the strength of these daily declarations. The bible says the expectations of the wicked shall perish. Which means the enemy has expectations for your day, for your year and for your life as a whole.
The enemy has already declared what will be of your day, what will be of your year, and what will be of your entire life. The power of life and death are wielded by your tongue. Who has the last word or first word on your life? The devil has a word on your life, I’ll tell you that for free. It’s up to you to pick a weapon and fight or be a victim.
King James Version (KJV)
28 The hope of the righteous shall be gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.
These daily declarations are weapons. Arrows from the roar of the lion of the tribe of Judah. Whatever jungle you are going through will fall silent at the sound of his roar. The daily declarations wield that word that is sharper than any two edged sword. I don’t know who your enemy is, but I know with the word or God as your defence you are victorious.
The word of God is eternal, if he said it, it is. He said you are a victor, you are more than a conqueror, you are the head and not the tail, you are above and not beneath, and when he arises his enemies scatter. Your enemies are his enemies! The Lord watches over his word to perform it, it goes out and achieves that which it is sent to. He exalts his word high, even higher than his name.
In a time of war, being a civilian does not guarantee safety. We are in a time of war ladies and gentlemen. Our enemy is ruthless, he cares not for the young or the old, the sick or the healthy. He is out to devour us all. It is time you took a stand. It is time you stopped being a victim and marched into the enemy’s camp to claim what is yours.
Our weapons are not carnal, for our enemy is not flesh and blood. We fight using prayer and fasting. Christ is our Commander- in-Chief. If you know deep down, that you are not where you want to be, or perhaps you are where you want to be in life but are aware that the enemy is not happy with your progress. He is out to destroy you. May these declarations arm you to take a stand against the enemy’s plots against you and yours.
As I was praying for this book the Lord showed me two things, firstly I saw marriages. God will bring people together, those desiring marriages will find. Secondly I saw colours raining down. Before I could make sense of it, God told me that ‘That is my grace showering on my people.’ His grace has always been
available, but many do not feel or know it. Many will start to know his grace first-hand!
HOW TO USE THESE DECLARATIONS:
Every one of our declarations is from the word of God himself.
- Read the declaration and scripture. 1 John 5:14
- Agree with the declaration. Mat 18:18-20
- Speak it out. Mark 11:22-24
- Pray over it with the knowledge that the Lord will honour his word.Psa 138:2
- Internalise it, Meditate on it. Josh 1:8
- Be expectant. Psa 62:5
- Receive. Mat 21:22
- Testify. Mark 5:19
Father your word is alive. It is eternal. Sharper than any two edged sword. Today, yesterday, and forever more. Your ears are inclined to the voices of your people. As they declare your very own word Lord, show yourself strong, arise and let your enemies be scattered.
Arise oh Lord, let your enemies be scattered. Lord I see testimonies, your name will be glorified for your goodness to your people. Walls will crumble, diseases will cease to exist, and the weak will stand strong in you. Not for our glory but your glory father. For your faithfulness Ebenezer they will call you.
For you have brought them thus far. Sleeping giants will awaken from their slumber, blind eyes will open, the spiritually blind will see, disasters will be eluded. Plots of the enemy will be made plain, exposed in the eyes of those who seek your face.
I wield your fire in the name of Jesus! I declare fire on these 100 daily declarations, I declare heaven is alive in them. The Lord lives in them. Lives will be changed, destinies altered through these declarations. No man will take glory for the mighty works you will do through these. In the mighty name of Jesus I pray. Amen. Amen and Amen.
Readers, please be aware that, The Prayer Relay Movement in no way encourages that the Daily Declarations replaces your daily prayer. These declarations are to be used together with your usual prayer. We encourage that you would pray without ceasing. This is in no way a remote control mechanism that changes one’s life to a better channel once uttered.
The Word of God teaches of an occasion when the disciples failed to cast out a demon which Christ cast out instantly. Upon inquiring of him, the Lord explained how some demons can only be cast out by prayer coupled with fasting. He also reiterated the paramount importance of faith in all this. Some situations you face as a believer cannot be moved by prayer alone, cannot be moved by declarations alone, but together with faith and fasting.
That being said I will testify that his word is indeed sharper than any two edged sword. One word from the Lord can turn your situation around. Try Christ. Declare his word daily into your life and be prepared to see transformation. The focus here is on Christ himself, not individual prosperity. Yes, Jehovah wants us to prosper but the focus should be to seek him first, and the bible says all these other things will be added unto you.
Shalom (Peace be with you)
When the earth was as yet unformed and desolate, with the surface of the ocean depths shrouded in darkness, and while the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters,
3 God said, “Let there be light!” So there was light.
Before the Lord spoke, there was no beauty. The bible says it was desolate and unformed. The word unformed tells us that before the Lord spoke the world was without shape. Some of our lives today are without shape, some of our families are without shape, and some of our relationships are without shape.
When something is desolate, there is no hope in sight. Some affairs of your life and my life may be in that state right now, but watch what happens when the word of the Lord is brought into the spectrum. A paradigm shift occurs. I see a paradigm shift coming to your life today, I see a change coming to your life today, I see hope visiting you today.
Note that it doesn’t say “light started to come.” It says there was light, some of us will be shocked by the speed at which God will change the state of affairs in our lives today. You know where darkness is in your life, you know what areas are desolate. For it benefits us not, to take light where there is already light. May the Lord open your eyes to see where light is needed today.
I DECLARE INTO YOUR DAY IN THE NAME OF JESUS…WHATEVER STANDS BEFORE YOU UNFORMED, WHATEVER IS DESOLATE. WHATEVER DARKNESS STANDS BEFORE YOU TODAY…LET THERE BE LIGHT. Speak it out: My day will be brighter. My plans will form today in the mighty name of Jesus. Let there be light!!
Genesis 1: 6-10
6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was
No matter how powerful medication is, it is best for the condition that it is suitable for. When you begin to identify your life, and your situation in the word of God, changes become imminent. Even though water is life, it is no good when it is everywhere.
When it is uncontained or uncontrolled. There are situations like that around every one of us. It may be your children, your spouse, your friend or even your finances. Things that are unbalanced in your life today. The word of the Lord, and the declaration of your mouth is about to bring a change today.
I SPEAK ORDER IN EVERY AREA OF YOUR LIFE. I DECLARE BALANCE IN ANY UNBALANCED AREAS OF YOUR LIFE. YOU WILL LOOK AT YOUR LIFE AND SEE IT IS GOOD. IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. AMEN
Speak it out: My life is orderly. I rebuke all forms of confusion from my sphere of influence. I am organised in the mighty name of Jesus. It is well with me. It is good.
Throughout creation, God would finish a work and look at his workmanship and see that it was good. As his child, that mantle is on you. All of us have started some form of work or project and not seen it to the end.
Many of us have not seen or tasted the goodness of their own work. That is not the way the Lord intended it to be. Today, by the power of the word of the living God we reclaim our position.
I DECLARE IN THE NAME OF JESUS, YOUR HANDS WILL PRODUCE GOODNESS. YOUR EYES WILL MARVEL AT THE WORKS OF YOUR HANDS. IN JESUS’ NAME
Speak it out: My hands produce what is good. With these hands I will produce whatever the mind conceives. In Jesus ‘ name.
11 God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: plants yielding seeds according to their kinds, and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds.” It was so.
At this point in creation, the earth was without produce. Fertility without production is as bad as barrenness. From this day forth, the word of the Lord will usher you into a place of productivity, a place of results.
I DECLARE IN THE NAME OF JESUS. ALL BARRENNESS CEASES TO EXIST IN YOUR LIFE. MAY EVERY AREA OF YOUR LIFE BEAR FRUIT. YOU WILL BE FRUITFUL IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS.
Speak it out: I am fruitful. I bear plenty in due season. All areas of my life are fertile.
25 The man and his wife were both naked, but they were not ashamed.
Now if you read further through this story in the next chapter, the serpent came to this couple and made claims to want to help them. In the end he only brought them shame. I declare, that shall not be your case!
I DECLARE YOUR EYES ARE OPEN TO THE PLOTS OF YOUR ENEMIES. EVEN THOSE WOLVES WHO COME IN SHEEP’S SKIN. MAY THEIR PLOT AGAINST YOU FALL UPON THEM, AND THEM ALONE. IN THE NAME OF JESUS
Speak it out: My eyes are open. The Lord guards me against the attacks of my enemies. I follow his commandments and by them am made safe. In Jesus’ name!
1 Now the serpent was shrewder than any of the wild animals that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Is it really true that God said, ‘You must not eat from any tree of the orchard’?”
This scripture chronicles the fall of man at the hands of the father of lies. Not all voices that speak to you have your best interests at heart. Not everyone that advises you seeks your benefit. You need to be able to decipher the gold in what you hear.
You need to be able to pick that gold out and ignore the rest of the trash. Adam and Eve failed to see the trash that the serpent spoke.
They failed to realise that the serpent did not have their best interests at heart even though he claimed to. They failed to realise that although the serpent spoke as though he sought to help them, what he actually sought was their distraction!
I DECLARE IT WILL NOT BE YOUR PORTION IN THIS LIFE TIME. I DECLARE YOUR EYES ARE OPEN TO DECIPHER TRUTHS FRON LIES. YOU ARE ENDOWED WITH THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH, YOU WILL DISCERN ALL LIES IN JESUS’ NAME.
Speak it out: I walk in the light of the Lord. I stand in the light of his truth where no lie can survive. My eyes are open to see the snares in the words of my detractors. In the mighty name of Jesus. Amen!!
3 At the designated time Cain brought some of the fruit of the ground for an offering to the LORD.
4 But Abel brought some of the firstborn of his flock – even the fattest of them. And the LORD was pleased with Abel and his offering,
5 but with Cain and his offering he was not pleased. So Cain became very angry, and his expression was downcast.
I DECLARE IN THE NAME OF JESUS. YOU WILL GIVE YOUR GOD THE BEST THAT YOU HAVE, NOTHING LESS. YOUR OFFERING WILL BE PLEASANT IN HIS EYES. IN JESUS’ NAME AMEN
Speak it out: My heart is drawn to Jehovah. I stretch my hands only to give to him the best that I have. I give him the best of my time, my talents and my resources. Only the best!!
The oldest man to ever live, Methuselah lived for 969 years, yet he is only mentioned in 6 verses of 1 chapter of the bible. Jesus only lived for 33 years, yet most of the bible is about him. Let that mind of Christ be also in you. There is a distinct difference between being alive and actually living.
I DECLARE IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS, YOU WILL NOT JUST BE A NUMBER. YOU WILL NOT JUST EXIST THEN EXIT, YOU WILL BE INFLUENTIAL. YOU WILL BE REMEMBERED. I USHER YOU INTO GREATNESS IN JESUS’ NAME.
Speak it out: I am great. I am influential. That mind that was in Christ is also in me.
22 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.
Noah was given instructions by the Lord. He followed these instructions precisely as the Lord had commanded. Obedience is greater than sacrifice.
I DECLARE IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS, YOU RECOGNISE YOUR SHEPHERD’S VOICE. YOU HEED HIS INSTRUCTIONS PRECISELY.
Speak it out: The Lord is my shepherd. I know his voice. I listen when he speak. I take heed of his counsel and follow his instructions. I do the Lord’s will by his grace. He blesses my sphere of influence. Amen.
8 And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters assuaged;
God kept Noah in mind, along with all the wildlife and livestock that were with him in the ark. God’s Spirit moved throughout the earth, causing the flood waters to subside.
I DECLARE IN THE NAME OF JESUS. THE LORD WILL KEEP YOU IN MIND IN TIMES OF TURMOIL. HE WILL KEEP YOU SAFE. HE WILL SEND HELP FOR YOU AT THE RIGHT TIME. TURMOIL WILL SUBSIDE BECAUSE OF YOU.
Speak it out: The Lord remembers me. His eyes remain on me. His hands are swift to rescue me. Amen.
Noah sent out a dove. It returned as it found nowhere to land. After 7 days he sent it out again and it didn’t return. Many-a-time we rush out because we tend to become impatient, we think we are prepared. As a result we find ourselves overwhelmed and drowning. We need to learn like Noah to only move when the Lord signals us that it is safe!
I DECLARE IN THE NAME OF JESUS. THE SPIRIT OF GOD WILL LEAD YOUR WAY. YOU WILL NOT WALK OUT INTO DANGEROUS WATERS. HE WILL GUIDE YOU TO SAFETY.
Speak it out: I am spirit led. I wait on the Lord to lead. My family is safe. My investment and interests are safe in the name of Jesus.
Noah offered his all to God on the altar he had built. It says he offered from EVERY clean animal and bird. His sacrifice was pleasant in the eyes of the Lord.
I DECLARE INTO YOUR LIFE IN THE NAME OF JESUS. YOUR HEART SEEKS THE LORD, YOU DESIRE HIM. YOU WILL GIVE TO THE LORD YOUR ALL…YOUR VERY BEST. YOUR SACRIFICE WILL MOVE THE LORD.
Speak it out: My heart desires you oh Lord. I give to you my all…my very best. My sacrifice to the Lord is pleasant aroma. He establishes a covenant with me. By this covenant shall all of mankind be blessed. Amen
Genesis 12:1-3 12 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will show thee:
2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
God told Abraham to leave all he knew. To leave the people he called his own. Then promised to make him a great nation and to bless those that bless him, and curse those that curse him
I DECLARE IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS. YOU WILL NOT HOLD ON TO THAT WHICH GOD SAYS FOR YOU TO LET GO OF. AS YOU RELEASE THESE HE WILL RELEASE AN OVERFLOW OF HIS BLESSINGS.
Speak it out: I release all God says to release. I go where God says to go. As I leave my people God is my people. As I leave my wealth, God is my wealth. Of me he will make a great nation in Jesus’ name. Amen
Abraham let Lot pick a side to go to. Lot was attracted by the beauty he saw, but Abraham knew wherever he chose would be great as long as he went with the Lord.
I DECLARE INTO YOUR SPIRIT IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS. YOU WILL DESIRE NOTHING THAT IS OUTSIDE OF THE LORD. YOU WILL DESIRE NOTHING MORE THAN YOU DESIRE HIM.
Speak it out: Wherever I go the Lord goes with me. I am blessed in my way. In my coming in and in going out. He transforms places where I set my feet.
Abram pursues those who captured Lot. He returns with both Lot and all his possessions.
I DECLARE IN THE NAME OF JESUS, WHATEVER PLIGHT MAY BEFALL YOU. BY GOD IT WILL REACH THE RIGHT EARS. YOUR RESCUER IS COMING.
Speak it out: I am safe for the Lord watches over me. When plight strikes, the Lord will move others to help me. I will incur no loss. He restores that which has been taken from me. Amen
By virtue of being positioned with Abram, Lot was blessed. By virtue of being in Gomorrah he was later captured. There is paramount importance on where one is positioned. Your positioning will determine your destiny.
I DECLARE IN THE NAME OF JESUS, YOU WILL BE POSITIONED IN A PLACE OF BLESSINGS. YOU ARE SURROUNDED BY HIS BLESSED, THE LORD’S FAVOUR FOLLOWS YOU. YOU WILL EVADE GOMORRAH.
Speak it out: I am perfectly positioned for his blessings. I am blessed. I am surrounded by his blessed. Amen
Abram refuses to take anything from the king of Sodom, lest he takes credit for making him wealthy.
IN THE NAME OF JESUS I DECLARE NO MAN WILL BE CREDITED WITH YOUR SUCCESS. YOU WILL BE SUCCESSFUL. YOU WILL BE GREAT. BY GOD’S HAND ALONE.
Speak it out: No man will take me where God cannot. I will be a success. God will be glorified. Amen
15 After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.
You’ve got to understand the significance of these words. You see, when men tell you these words, no matter how honourable they are they often falter on their word, but God is faithful to his every word.
He watches each word to fulfil it. When he says he’ll protect you, you’re guaranteed to be safe. When he says he’s your shield, you are indeed shielded. Claim this word!!
THE LORD IS YOUR PROTECTOR, YOUR SHIELD, AND EXCEEDINGLY GREAT REWARD, IN HIM YOU ARE SAFE.
Speak it out: I am not afraid. My reward is great. The Lord is my shield, just as he was to Abram. Amen
2 And Abram said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus?
3 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir.
4 And, behold, the word of the Lord came unto him, saying, this shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.
Abram was childless, he was wealthy and healthy. God asks him to count the stars, his descendants would be as many. The significance of this is that Abram had everything but a child.
IN THE NAME OF JESUS, WHATEVER YOUR HEART DESIRES MAY THE LORD PROVIDE FAR BEYOND YOUR EXPECTATIONS.
Speak it out: My hope is in you oh Lord. I trust in you and you provide my heart’s desires. Amen
4 And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes.
Sarai blessed Hagai, by putting her in a position to bear an heir for Abram. However when she got into that position Hagai began to despise Sarai.
Many people whom you bless may begin to use that which you gave them against you. By your declaration and prayer today may that not be your case.
NO MOUTH THAT YOU FEED WILL SUCCESSFULLY BITE YOU. THE LORD IS YOUR VINDICATOR. IN JESUS’ NAME
Speak it out: Against every evil that arises from within my own house, the Lord is my protector. Amen
9 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Return to thy mistress, and submit thyself under her hands.
10 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, I will multiply thy seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude.
An angel instructs the fugitive Hagai to return and submit to authority. That she would be blessed as she honours authority. Generations to come will also be blessed.
I DECLARE IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS. YOUR OBEDIENCE WILL USHER YOU INTO BLESSINGS. YOUR HONOUR OF AUTHORITY WILL RAISE YOU TO A PLACE OF HONOUR.
Speak it out: As I honour those in positions of authority. I am blessed. My descendants are blessed.
5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.
Abram’s name is changed to Abraham, for he was exceedingly blessed. Kings would descend from him. Your name is essentially who you are. When your name is changed, your position is shifted. May your position be shifted for the better today.
I DECLARE INTO YOUR SPIRIT IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. THE LORD WILL BLESS YOU BEYOND YOUR NAME. HE WILL GIVE YOU A NEW NAME.
Speak it out: I am blessed beyond the confinements of my name. The Lord will give me a new name. Amen
15 And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be.
16 And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.
Abraham had sown seed in Sarai for a long time but had reaped no harvest. But God changes her name to Sarah and makes her mother of kings and nations.
I DECLARE EVERY FORM OF UNFRUITFULNESS WILL DEPART FROM YOUR LIFE AS YOU READ THESE WORDS IN THE NAME OF JESUS. YOUR HARVEST IS GREAT.
Speak it out: I am fruitful. Every good seed sown in me will bear fruit. In Jesus’ name. Amen
23 And Abraham took Ishmael his son, and all that were born in his house, and all that were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham’s house; and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin in the same day, as God had said unto him.
Once the covenant was agreed upon, Abram fulfilled his part that very day. To understand this you’ll need to read a few verses back. God made a covenant with Abram.
When a covenant is made each party has a part to play in order to fulfil the covenant. Abram had to get circumcised together with all males in his household, and he did this that very day. He was swift to meet the Lord at his offer.
I DECLARE THAT YOU WILL BE SWIFT AND PROMPT IN FOLLOWING THE LORD’S INSTRUCTIONS. AS YOU KEEP YOUR COVENANT, THE LORD WILL DO AS HE SAID HE WOULD. IN JESUS’ NAME, AMEN!
Speak it out: When the Lord speaks I do not delay. I am swift to do whatever it is that he asks. His grace enables me.
14 Is anything impossible for the LORD? I will return to you when the season comes round again and Sarah will have a son.”
The greatness of the Lord is so amazing that even the most faithful of us are left in utter disbelief. Abram laughed when the Lord told him he’d have a child.
The Lord then poses this statement before him. ‘Is there anything too hard for the Lord?’ I pose the same statement before you today. Is your lack of faith setting boundaries for the Lord?
I DECLARE IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. WHATEVER IMPOSSIBLE SITUATION STANDS BEFORE YOU WILL CRUMBLE BEFORE THE LORD OF POSSIBILITIES
Speak it out: God is bigger than any situation. There is nothing, absolutely nothing too hard for the Lord!
The angels of the Lord came to destroy Gomorrah. Lot’s hospitality ensured his safety and that of his loved ones. Had Lot not been hospitable, the story could have been different. It takes a good heart and a renewed spirit to genuinely care for others. This is part of what saved Lot. The Lord will touch your heart today.
MAY THE LORD CREATE A LOVING HEART IN YOU. MAY HE CREATE OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOU TO MINISTER TO OTHERS. BY YOUR LOVE FOR OTHERS GOD WILL CREATE A WAY OF ESCAPE. IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS!
Speak it out: I am generous, I am courteous, and I care for the well-being of others.
12 And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? Son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place:
13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Lord; and the Lord hath sent us to destroy it.
The angels asked Lot if he had family. So they could also be spared when the city was destroyed. Many of us have had opportunities present themselves to us that we wished we could have shared with our loved ones.
May God give you the grace to hold doors open for others, and to send a rope down to pull those who are below you.
IN THE NAME OF JESUS, THE LORD WILL REMEMBER YOUR LOVED ONES. AS HE BLESSES YOU, AS HE RESCUES YOU HE WILL DO FOR THEM TOO.
Speak it out: I am blessed as I bless others. The Lord is generous to me. I am made safe.
16 When Lot hesitated, the men grabbed his hand and the hands of his wife and two daughters because the LORD had compassion on them. They led them away and placed them outside the city.
In the sight of trouble, confusion is often looming. At times we begin to lose our footing, we fail to move even when we want to escape. You may know where to go, but without the Lord there is no escape. May his word be light unto your feet today.
THE HAND OF THE LORD WILL QUICKEN YOU WHEN YOUR OWN SPEED CAN NOT CARRY YOU. HIS COMPASSION WILL LEAD YOU TO SAFETY. IN JESUS’ NAME. AMEN!
Speak it out: I am swift in my escape. The Lord is my guide I will not stray. I will survive.
22 Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do anything till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.
As the angels are about to destroy the city they tell Lot to run out. That they could not act until he was out. The grace of the Lord can put calamity on pause until his people are safe!!!
IN THE NAME OF JESUS, CALAMITY WILL NOT OVERCOME YOU UNTIL THE LORD HAS CREATED A SAFE ESCAPE FOR YOU.
Speak it out: The Lord is my protector. I am safe. No terror will overtake me until an escape is availed to me.
26 But Lot’s wife looked back longingly and was turned into a pillar of salt.
How amazing is the Lord’s grace in this day. When you are pulled out of darkness into the light, the Lord says leave everything and follow me. Yet very often we crave those things that we left behind.
Although we don’t look back to a burning city, some of us have strayed from our convictions here and there. May his grace keep your eyes on the prize.
IN JESUS’ NAME EVERY DESIRE OF UNRIGHTEOUS WAYS IS NOT IN YOU. YOU WILL ONLY LOOK AHEAD TO CHRIST, NO PAST WILL DRAG YOU BACK.
Speak it out: I repent of any and all moments I have strayed from my convictions. My eyes will remain focused on you oh Lord. I will not be pulled away by the glitter of the world.
Abimelech had taken Sarah for himself. God struck his whole household with infertility. The significance of this is that Sarah was Abram’s means of productivity, if he was to have an heir…His destiny.
From the moment God said Abram would be a father of nations, he essentially asserted Sarai as a mother of nations. Abram did not have any other means to make this come to pass, but Sarai. Some of us face such situations, your destiny is threatened. By God you are covered!! He said you will get there, his word will not return to him void
IN THE NAME OF JESUS, ANY HAND THAT IS STRETCHED TO STEAL YOUR DESTINY, TO TAKE AWAY YOUR PRODUCTIVITY. IN JESUS’ NAME THAT HAND WILL NOT PROSPER. NO PRODUCTIVITY WILL COME FROM THAT HAND. AMEN
Speak it out: I am successful. My destiny will come to pass. No opposition will destroy it. The Lord’s word for my life will come to pass, He will watch over it to perform it.
6 Sarah said, “God has made me laugh. Everyone who hears about this will laugh with me.”
Not every ear that hears your good news will rejoice. To those who truly rejoice, your prosperity is a blessing. May those who truly rejoice with you be blessed by your blessings, may they share in the goodness of the Lord.
MAY THOSE WHO HEAR OF THE GOODNESS OF THE LORD TO YOU BE BLESSED BY IT. MAY THEY RECEIVE AS YOU HAVE RECEIVED,IN JESUS’ NAME.
Speak it out: The Lord’s blessings on me will bless those who hear them. May those who rejoice at my blessings be blessed too.
17 But God heard the boy’s voice. The angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and asked her, “What is the matter, Hagar? Don’t be afraid, for God has heard the boy’s voice right where he is crying.
No matter where you are when you cry, the Lord’s ears are inclined to your cry. Even in the desert where his mother was helpless, his father knew not where he was…the boy’s cry reached heaven. Your cry will reach heaven today. When your cry reaches the right ears your rescue is guaranteed!!
NO TEAR THAT FALLS OUT OF YOUR EYES WILL GO UNNOTICED. HEAVEN WILL HEAR YOUR CRY. GOD WILL MAKE A WAY FOR YOU. IN JESUS’ NAME. JOY IS YOURS.
Speak it out: The Lord is my deliverer. He wipes away my tears.
19 Then God enabled Hagar to see a well of water. She went over and filled the skin with water, and then gave the boy a drink.
You see, the well was already there but Hagar did not see it until the Lord enabled her to. Just because you do not have does not mean that God has not provided.
That’s the reason why in the same environment some will thrive while others fail. May the Lord enable you.
AS YOU READ THIS BY FAITH THE LORD WILL OPEN YOUR EYES AND ENABLE YOU TO SEE OPPORTUNITIES, AND TO SEE DOORS. YOUR SUCCESS IS IN SIGHT. IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS. AMEN!
Speak it out: My eyes are open, by the Lord. I see and receive his provision.
6 “Listen, sir, you are a mighty prince among us! You may bury your dead in the choicest of our tombs. None of us will refuse you his tomb to prevent you from burying your dead.”
Any prince will tell you that favour is not guaranteed outside of his own kingdom. Abram was in a foreign land, favour was not guaranteed there. Catch this though, Heaven and earth were crafted by your father. So no matter where you are, you are under his ruler ship, and you are in his kingdom. Favour is yours wherever you are.
IN THE NAME OF JESUS. FAVOUR WILL FOLLOW YOU. YOU WILL FIND FAVOUR EVEN IN FOREIGN LANDS. DOORS OF UNCOMMON FAVOUR ARE OPENING TO YOU.
Speak it out: I am favoured of the Lord. No matter where I am, I walk in his grace, I walk with his favour!
12 And he said, O LORD God of my master Abraham, I pray thee, send me good speed this day, and show kindness unto my master Abraham.
What’s amazing about this scripture is that this servant clearly did not know God on a personal basis, yet he called on him. His reason for calling on the Lord, was the goodness of the Lord that he had seen on his master Abram. May the Lord exhibit his goodness on you.
THE LORD WILL REMEMBER YOU, AND ALL AROUND WILL SEE GOODNESS IN YOUR LIFE. YOU ARE A CITY ON A HILL, EXHIBITING HIS GOODNESS IN THE LAND OF THE LIVING. IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS. AMEN
Speak it out: The Lord hears the cry of all my people. My sphere of influence will know of the Lord through my life. I am a walking testimony!!
15 Before he had finished praying, there came Rebekah with her water jug on her shoulder. She was the daughter of Bethuel son of Milcah (Milcah was the wife of Abraham’s brother Nahor).
You have to love this. His prayer is not eloquent, it is not well worded, it is not well structured. It is sincere, and the Lord understands sincerity.
The man who did not know the Lord was still stumbling his way through a prayer, and there came his answer. What a mighty God we serve. I see a surprise for someone today. The Lord will shock someone. Be expectant.
YOUR PRAYERS WILL ALL BE ANSWERED, SOME EVEN BEFORE YOU HAVE SAID THEM. GOD IS SWIFT TO YOUR RESCUE. IN JESUS’ NAME
Speak it out: The Lord is amazing. He is swift in blessing his servants. I am blessed.
50 Then Laban and Bethuel replied, “This is the LORD’s doing. Our wishes are of no concern.
In a world that is full of self-love, and lack of belief these words are scarce. If you would let the Lord be the pilot of your life, it will not crash.
I DECLARE IN THE NAME OF JESUS, EVERY VOICE OF REBELLION AGAINST THE LORD IS SILENCED. A LOVE AND SUBMISSION TO HIS WILL IS BIRTHED INSIDE OF YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
Speak it out: I am faithful to you oh Lord. My own wishes will not go before your will. Have your way with me.
32 “Look,” said Esau, “I’m about to die! What use is the birth right to me?”
This will not be said of you. You see, Esau was faced with a present situation that made him lose focus of the future. Thus he got present gratification at the cost of the future.
Sadly our generation is plagued by Esau’s mentality, as evidenced by high rates of teenage pregnancy and drugs as well as other ills of this world. You are set apart. You will stand alone, you will not fall.
YOU HAVE VISION. YOU WILL SEE BEYOND THE PRESENT. YOU WILL NOT MORTGAGE YOUR FUTURE FOR PRESENT GRATIFICATION. IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS
Speak it out: I am set apart. In this world but not of it. I live for you oh Lord. The Lord is my guide, and I faithfully follow him
11 So Abimelech commanded all the people, “Whoever touches this man or his wife will surely be put to death.”
This generation needs no introduction to instant justice. The press daily carry stories of trigger-happy individuals who have ended others’ lives. In a foreign turf, what Abram did was punishable by death.
His life was only preserved by the fear of the Lord that came over these people. Imagine this, instead of killing him, his enemies actually issued an edict to insure his safety. May the Lord protect you.
YOU ARE SAFE WHEREVER YOU GO. THOSE WHO POSE A DANGER TO YOU WILL BE THE ONES TO PROTECT YOU. YOUR SAFETY IS ASSURED IN JESUS’ NAME!
Speak it out: Your enemies will protect you, for fear of the wrath of the Lord. You will be made safe in danger zones.
12 When Isaac planted in that land, he reaped in the same year a hundred times what he had sown, because the LORD blessed him.
To fully comprehend this blessing, you’d need to understand this story from verses prior to this. This was not Isaac’s land, his behaviour had already angered the land owners. Yet heavens opened, he harvested more than he had ever harvested.
IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS I USHER YOU INTO ABUNDANCE. YOU WILL HARVEST MORE THAN YOU HAVE EVER HARVESTED, YOUR HARVEST IS GREAT. YOU WILL HAVE A BUMPER HARVEST IN THE LAND OF YOUR ENEMIES.
Speak it out: I will reap bountiful for seed I have sown. I will be fulfilled even in the land of my enemies.
22 Then he moved away from there and dug another well. They did not quarrel over it, so Isaac named it Rehoboth, saying, “For now the LORD has made room for us, and we will prosper in the land.”
I absolutely adore this story. In these times water wasn’t as widely available and disregarded as it is today in some places. In this story there was a quarrel over water, and instead of fighting, Isaac simply moved and dug another well.
He found space, he found liberty and moved with God’s blessings. I don’t know what you are fighting for today, but I know as long as you have the Lord’s presence there is better wherever you may go.
IN THE NAME OF JESUS I DECLARE, YOU WILL FIND MORE VALUE. WHATEVER IS TAKEN FROM YOU IS LESS THAN WHAT THE LORD WILL GIVE YOU. THE LORD WILL MAKE ROOM FOR YOU, YOU WILL PROSPER, YOU WILL THRIVE!!
Speak it out: I pick my battles wisely. The Lord is with me where I go. I find prosperity wherever I go. I am prosperous.
28 They replied, “We could plainly see that the LORD is with you. So we decided there should be a pact between us – between us and you. Allow us to make a treaty with you
Isaac had dug a well, which was wrongly taken from him. He dug another which they still claimed to be theirs, from which he moved again.
Finally he dug a third, and prospered from there. His enemies saw his prosperity and realised that it was not material. They had taken material from him, yet he was still thriving. What he had was the Lord on his side! And his enemies began to recognise this.
YOUR ENEMIES WILL SEEK PEACE WITH YOU. THEY WILL SEE THAT THE LORD IS WITH YOU, HIS PRESENCE WILL BEAR TESTIMONY. IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.
Speak it out: No possession or position taken from me will signify my fall. I will thrive from wherever I may be. The Lord is my source!!!
28 Therefore God give thee of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine:
Let’s break down this blessing. Dew is water, water is life. And when life comes from heaven no man can take it away from you! Fatness is prosperity, success…may you succeed in all you do.
Corn is food, a basic need. You will not lack. Wine is a sign of abundance. No one in his/her right mind will seek wine if they do not have enough to eat! You will have enough, you will have so much you will bless others!
LIKE A FLOWER YOU WILL BLOSSOM. YOU ARE PLANTED ON GOOD SOIL. YOU ARE FRUITFUL IN JESUS’ NAME!!
Speak it out: I am blessed. I have all I need. The Lord is my supplier, I lack nothing!
May people serve you and nations bow down to you. You will be Lord over your brothers and sons of your mother will bow down to you. May those who curse you be curse, and those who bless you be blessed.
Jesus taught us that the greatest among us is the one that serves us all. However when people serve you, you would have been elevated to a place of esteem. You would have found favour. Bowing is a sign of submission, saying “Have your way.”
When nations bow to you, whatever you seek becomes easier to attain. From Joseph we learn that by being lord over a people, does not mean you push everyone around, it in fact means that your success becomes enough to carry everyone else.
Your resources become vast enough to supply others. Whatever mouth utters for you or against you, may it be so to them as they have said of you!!
IN THE NAME OF JESUS FAVOUR IS YOURS. YOU ARE A BLESSINGS TO YOUR KINDRED, TO YOUR FRIENDS AND ALL AROUND!
Speak it out: I am humble. The Lord supplies enough for me to bless others. My success is everyone’s success. I care for and love my kindred!
40 You will live by your sword but you will serve your brother. When you grow restless, you will tear off his yoke from your neck.”
When one is yoked, his/her movement is restricted. When you are yoked you can only move according to desires of the one who has yoked you. Restlessness is refusal to be still, refusal to be confined. You will not be confined. By your refusal to be confined may you shake off any yoke in the name of Jesus!
YOU WILL NOT BE COMFORTABLE IN BONDAGE. YOU WILL RECOGNISE WHEN YOU ARE BOUND. YOU WILL GROW RESTLESS, I DECLARE EVERY YOKE BROKEN FROM YOUR NECK IN JESUS’ NAME. AMEN!
Speak it out: I live under no yoke. I am free, I am restless. I am victorious!
4 May he give you and your descendants the blessing he gave to Abraham so that you may possess the land God gave to Abraham, the land where you have been living as a temporary resident.”
The blessing of Abraham assures you that the Lord will indeed take you to a place he has set aside for you, for your children, and for all those who will come after. It assures you that the Lord will always be your guide!
YOU ARE BLESSED. THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD IS WITH YOU ALWAYS. THE LORD WILL GUIDE YOU TO THE DESTINY THAT HE HAS LONG SET ASIDE FOR YOU. YOUR EVERY WAR IS FOUGHT BY HIM. YOUR EVERY ENEMY IS CONFRONTED BY HIM. IN JESUS’ NAME. AMEN
Speak it out: I am indeed blessed beyond words can express. The Lord is my keeper, no harm shall befall me!
15 I am with you! I will protect you wherever you go and will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I promised you!”
This cements what you should already know of the character of the Lord. He watches over his word to perform it. That is why he says “He will not leave you until He has done what he promised you.”
When the Lord is with you, failure is unheard of. That will be your testimony.
THE LORD IS FAITHFUL TO YOU. HE WILL WATCH OVER HIS WORD FOR YOU TO PERFORM IT. NO MATTER WHAT STANDS IN YOUR WAY, YOU WILL REACH YOUR DESTINATION. IN JESUS’ NAME. AMEN
Speak it out: I will testify of the presence of the Lord. He will lead me throughout my journey. I will reach my destination.
16 Then Jacob woke up and thought, “Surely the LORD is in this place, but I did not realize it!”
Even though the Lord has assured us that he would never leave nor forsake us, we often take his presence for granted. At times when things don’t go our way we think he has left us. Yet his ways are not our ways.
Do you think Joseph wanted to be in that pit? Of course he did want to rule in Egypt. Although you may not recognise it, the Lord is taking you through a process to get you to your destination.
He alone knows the plan, but I’ll assure you if you will stay steadfast and hold on to his hand and be faithful to him DOMINION will be your portion!
THE LORD WILL BE WITH YOU ALWAYS. EVEN WHEN YOU DO NOT RECOGNISE OR ACKNOWLEDGE IT. MAY THIS BE YOUR TESTIMONY. IN JESUS’ NAME. AMEN
Speak it out: The Lord is with me. The Lord is surely with me. I rejoice in your presence Lord, for I know all is well.
31 When the LORD saw that Leah was unloved, he enabled her to become pregnant while Rachel remained childless.
The most coveted desire of any man in these times was to have an heir. Although Rachel was loved, she failed to provide this. Come to think of it, Jacob probably lay with Rachel all the time and Leah not so often.
Rachel had opportunity to become mother of his children, Leah was seldom given this. Yet the Lord used the few moments that Leah had with Jacob to raise her up. May you bear fruit even with minimal seed!
GOD WILL RAISE YOU HIGH, HIGH ABOVE THOSE WHO WISH YOU ILL. HE WILL RAISE YOU SO HIGH THAT YOUR ENEMIES WILL NOTICE. IN JESUS’ NAME. AMEN
Speak it out: Even with lack of man’s favour, the favour of the Lord is upon me. I am fruitful.
27 But Laban said to him, “If I have found favour in your sight, please stay here, for I have learned by divination that the LORD has blessed me on account of you.”
Divination is not of the Lord, yet it recognises him! It recognises his might! It acknowledges his dominion and sovereignty. Some blessings you have are because of those around you.
Some troubles too sadly are simply because of those you keep around you. By your declaration and prayer today, you will become a blessing to those around you today. You will know who to have around you!
BECAUSE OF YOU, YES YOU…THE LORD WILL BLESS THOSE AROUND YOU. YOUR FAMILY IS BLESSED. YOUR FRIENDS ARE BLESSED. YOU WILL RECOGNISE THE LORD’S ELECT, AND THOSE WHO WILL PULL YOU AWAY FROM HIM. YOUR COMPANY GLORIFIES YAHWE!
Speak it out: I am blessed. I am a blessing to those around me. I am blessed by virtue of those around me too.
2 When Jacob saw the look on Laban’s face, he could tell his attitude toward him had changed.
Your success will never ever be received with joy by everyone. Some will feel they deserve it more than you do. Other will feel you owe it to them. Many have been destroyed for failing to recognise envy brewing. By your prayer and declaration today, may the Lord open your eyes.
YOUR EYES ARE OPEN. YOU WILL SEE WHEN HATRED IS BREWING AGAINST YOU. THE LORD WILL LEAD YOU AWAY FROM STRIFE. IN JESUS’ NAME. AMEN
Speak it out: I am wise. I know when to run and when to fight!
3 The LORD said to Jacob, “Return to the land of your fathers and to your relatives. I will be with you.”
This constant reassurance is very fundamental. It is hard to walk away from what you have spent time building, but with the Lord by your side you will always build bigger and better. Value his presence more than any possession!
YOU WILL HEAR THE SHEPHERD’S VOICE. YOU WILL FOLLOW HIS LEAD AND HE WILL BE WITH YOU WHEREVER YOU GO. AMEN!
Speak it out: I follow the Lord’s guidance and lead, even when it hurts. I know the Lord knows what is best!
16 Surely all the wealth that God snatched away from our father belongs to us and to our children. So now do everything God has told you.”
The aim of any hard working individual is to provide for his/her children, and where possible for the generation after as well. Often the enemy snatches the fruits of this hard work and places them in hands that have not worked for it.
God forbid that your children would struggle while strangers live well off your hard work. If you’ll agree with me today, we’ll commit your work and all its fruits into the hand of the Lord, for he is faithful to deliver it into the right hands!
YOU WILL POSSESS THAT WHICH WAS LOST BY GENERATIONS BEFORE YOU. YOUR CHILDREN WILL HAVE A WORTHY INHERITANCE. IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS. NO HAND WILL SNATCH AND POSSESS WHAT THE LORD SAYS IS YOURS. YOU AND YOUR FAMILY WILL ENJOY THE FRUITS OF YOUR LABOUR!
Speak it out: Father God Jehovah take control over the works of my hands. All the fruits that these hands will bear, Lord I commit to you. To safeguard, to channel to the right beneficiaries in the name of Jesus!
29 I have the power to do you harm, but the God of your father told me last night, ‘Be careful that you neither bless nor curse Jacob.’
All of us have been in a place where we thought we would not come out alive, yet we are here reading this today. His grace is enabling. At times we do not recognise that he is fighting our enemies because the wars do not even reach us.
Jacob was probably sleeping when the Lord stood in his place and defended him in his time of vulnerability. He truly neither sleeps nor slumbers. He has his eyes on you, just because you do not hear gun shots doesn’t mean the enemy did not have a chance to shoot you.
THE LORD WILL SET A BOUNDARY FOR YOUR ENEMIES. NO CURSE WILL BEFALL YOU. NO UNGODLY BLESSING WILL BEFALL YOU EITHER. IN THE NAME OF JESUS
Speak it out: The Lord is my defender. He is my fortress at my weakest moments!
49 It was also called Mizpah because he said, “May the LORD watch between us when we are out of sight of one another.
Everyone and anyone will profess their love and admiration for you in your face, the real ones are those who sing the same song in your absence. Some teeth you see smiling at you, are actually preparing to bite you once you turn your back.
May the Lord watch between you and your associates. He will be the judge of any foul play against you. The enemies will be evident by their demise, you will know them by their fall.
THE EYES OF THE LORD WILL ENSURE JUSTICE ON YOUR BEHALF. EVEN AGAINST THOSE WHO GO AGAINST YOU BEHIND YOUR BACK, THE LORD WILL FIGHT FOR YOU. AMEN
Speak it out: I will know justice in an unjust world. The Lord is my vindicator, he is just!
10 I am not worthy of all the faithful love you have shown your servant. With only my walking stick I crossed the Jordan, but now I have become two camps.
All man’s righteousness is filthy before a pure God. None of our acts warrant us the love that he shows us. Yet we were still sinners he sent his son Jesus to die for us!
If you’ll be truly honest with yourself you’ll recognise that there are people who you thought were better suited to see this day than yourself, yet you saw it when others did not. The Lord is faithful to you even when you are not faithful to yourself, let alone to him!
I DECLARE OVER YOU RIGHT NOW IN JESUS’ NAME. YOU ARE BLESSED BEYOND MEASURE. THE LORD WILL LIFT YOU FROM NOTHING TO A PLACE BEYOND YOUR IMAGINATION. WHAT YOU STARTED WITH WILL NOT EQUATE TO WHAT YOU’LL END WITH. THE LORD IS YOUR PROVIDER
Speak it out: I am not worthy of all the Lord does for me. He is faithful, and stands by me even when I don’t stand by myself!
26 Then the man said, “Let me go, for the dawn is breaking.” “I will not let you go,” Jacob replied, “unless you bless me.”
Many opportunities come and go before we can identify and take advantage of them. Great opportunities never come on a silver platter, you’ve got to fight to grab hold of them, and you’ve got to fight to keep them.
Jacob wrestled because he recognised that this opportunity was about to evade him, God forbid that you’d be in his presence and leave the same! There was pain here for Jacob, there was trial yet he held on.
I don’t know what you desire today, but if you would keep your eyes fixed on Jehovah in the midst of all the world’s distractions. If you would wrestle against all disruptions and seek him, he will not go without blessing you!!!
YOU WILL RECOGNISE BLESSINGS. YOU WILL BE STRONG TO HOLD ON THROUGH HARD TIMES AND PAIN; UNTIL YOU REACH YOUR BLESSING. AMEN.
Speak it out: I am strengthened by vision of where I want to go, and by the vision of what I want to achieve. My mind is steadfast set on the Lord. I cling to Jehovah!
2 So Jacob told his household and all who were with him, “Get rid of the foreign gods you have among you. Purify yourselves and change your clothes.
Many of our homes do not know the presence of Jehovah because we have built shrines of worship to other things. Shrines of worship to ourselves, to money, to our spouses, technology or even our children.
In some cases we have let others build and keep shrines in our midst, we have turned a blind eye to the iniquities of our children. By your prayer and declaration today the Lord will visit you, he will begin to open your eyes to see and recognise some shrines and “foreign gods” that you may have erected knowingly or unknowingly!
He will strengthen you to take charge of your home so that he may dwell with you!
NO INIQUITIES WILL LIVE AMONG YOU. YOU WILL BE PURE IN HEART AND PURE BEFORE THE LORD. YOUR HEAD WILL NOT BOW TO ANY OTHER GOD BUT JEHOVAH, KNOWINGLY OR UNKNOWINGLY. IN JESUS’ NAME. AMEN
Speak it out: Oh Lord Jehovah I repent of any and all shrines I may have erected to any and all other gods but you! I give you my home, I give you my life, I give you my mind, I give you my family. Cleanse me Jehovah, purify us!
3 Let us go up at once to Bethel. Then I will make an altar there to God, who responded to me in my time of distress and has been with me wherever I went.”
Gratitude; I mean true gratitude is a rare commodity in this generation. To understand the significance of this verse you’d need to know that building an altar was not an easy task. One would have to find boulders and carry them to the chosen area where they would be arranged in an eloquent pile.
After building an altar you would make a sacrifice, which had to be your very best to the Lord. I challenge you today to be grateful for all the Lord has done, is doing and will continue to do for you. Every single one of us has boulder to carry; heavy weights that we need to take before the Lord that we ourselves may be living sacrifices.
THIS WILL BE YOUR TESTIMONY. YOU WILL CALL HIM JEHOVAH EBENEZER, FOR HE HAS BROUGHT YOU THIS FAR. NEVER WILL HIS PRAISES DEPART FROM YOUR LIPS. YOU WILL REMEMBER HIM AS HE HAS ALWAYS REMEMBERED YOU. IN JESUS’ NAME. AMEN
Speak it out: I am grateful for all that the Lord has done for me. He is Ebenezer, he has indeed brought me thus far!
11 Then God said to him, “I am the sovereign God. Be fruitful and multiply! A nation – even a company of nations – will descend from you; kings will be among your descendants!
When God reassures you of his sovereignty greatness is at hand. Being sovereign assures you that there is none higher than him, none more superior, and none more supreme. He is in control of it all! “Be fruitful and multiply” is not a request, it is an order. You will be fruitful!
You will multiply! This blessing goes beyond you as an individual, it goes to your kids! It stretches generation after generation! Those after you will be even greater. You will birth greatness.
The amazing thing is that God will never put you on a path if he’s not going to walk with you. If he is not going to guide you, he is not going to put you on that path.
I DECLARE IN THE NAME OF JESUS. YOU ARE FRUITFUL. YOU MULTIPLY WHATEVER YOU PUT YOUR HANDS TO. GREATNESS IS IN YOU, IN YOUR CHILDREN AND ALL WHO WILL COME AFTER YOU. AMEN
Speak it out: I accept oh Lord. I will be fruitful. I will multiply. Out of me will come nations and kings. In the mighty name of your Son Jesus Christ. Amen!
12 The land I gave to Abraham and Isaac I will give to you. To your descendants I will also give this land.”
We often take it for granted that what we have will ultimately become our children’s and so on. The fact that God has to “re-give”, if I may use that phrase, tells us that more than often the natural way of things is interfered with.
As a result, your children are not guaranteed to possess what is yours even if it is legally theirs. However when God becomes your legal team the story changes. He commits to see his word through! It will be!
IN THE NAME OF JESUS. WHATEVER IT IS THAT THE LORD HAS SAID IS YOURS, NO HAND WILL TAKE AWAY FROM YOU. I RECLAIM ANY AND ALL THINGS THAT THE ENEMY HAS SNATCHED FROM YOU, EVEN GENERATIONS BEFORE YOU. IT IS YOURS.
Speak it out: Jehovah is the law for me. He watches over and guides me. His justice rules over my affairs.
29 Then Isaac breathed his last and joined his ancestors. He died an old man who had lived a full life. His sons Esau and Jacob buried him.
Many die without having lived. Others live empty lives, and die carrying all that dormant potential that God has vested in them. I am often reminded of the parable of the talents. Some of us choose to develop what the Lord has given them, while others keep it buried.
We will all die someday, but what legacy will you leave? More importantly what legacy will you take home to heaven with you? By your prayer and declaration today may you come alive, stand up and be counted. Live a full life!
IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS. I DECLARE YOU WILL LIVE A FULFILLED AND FULFILLING LIFE. YOUR LIFE WILL NOT BE CUT PREMATURELY. YOU WILL ACHIEVE. YOU WILL COMPLETE ALL THAT GOD HAS SENT YOU TO.
Speak it out: I will live a long and complete life. My life will be a song of praise and testimony unto Jehovah!
5 Joseph had a dream, and when he told his brothers about it, they hated him even more.
What you have, whatever gift the Lord has given to you does not begin to affect people until it begins to be projected outwards. Unfortunately for Joseph his dream was projected firstly from his mouth. Any great dream will not go unchallenged.
No vision will go without obstacles. The greater your obstacles are, the greater the things that lay beyond that obstacle are as well. I dare you to take a stand today. I dare you to believe in what the Lord has put in you. By your prayer today, by your declaration, and by the power that Jesus has vested in you, you will prevail.
YOU ARE UNIQUE, PEOPLE MAY NOT UNDERSTAND YOU OR SHARE YOUR VISION. I DECLARE IN THE NAME OF JESUS; NO VOICE OF DISAPPROVAL OR HATRED WILL BLOCK YOUR DESTINY. YOU WILL REACH YOUR DESTINATION, EVEN IF THEY HATE YOU MORE!!
Speak it out: By God I will prevail. Every obstacle is but a stepping stone for me in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
10 When he told his father and his brothers, his father rebuked him, saying, “What is this dream that you had? Will I, your mother, and your brothers really come and bow down to you?”
It is seldom that those around you will instantly share your dream or vision, let alone believe in it and assist you in pursuing it. Dreams will always face opposition. Even family and friends may become detractors of your destiny, but never let that decide your fate!
By this declaration and prayer today, may God continue to propel you towards your destiny. May your ears become shut to noises that may distract you and send you off the path that God has set for you. In Jesus’ name. Amen
IN THE NAME OF JESUS I DECLARE OVER YOU. YOUR DREAM IS ALIVE. ANY VOICE THAT DISCOURAGES YOU WILL LIVE TO SEE IT COME TO PASS. THEY WILL BOW AT THE GREATNESS OF YOUR TESTIMONY. THE LORD WILL SHOW OFF HIS POWER ON YOU!!!
Speak it out: My destiny will come to fruition. I am a success. In the mighty name of Jesus!
2 The LORD was with Joseph. He was successful and lived in the household of his Egyptian master.
No matter what you set out to do, who you keep on your side will play a major role, if not actually determine whether you reach your destiny or not. If you read through the life of Joseph you will see that all through his trials and tribulations he had a grace and contentment about him.
Even in the pit or the prison his eyes remained focused on the dreams that God had shown him all those years before. Let me remind you that God has a destiny for you, and he is watching over it to perform it!
THE LORD IS EVERPRESENT IN ALL YOU DO, WHEREVER YOU GO. HE WILL LEAD YOU AND FOLLOW YOU. YOU WILL THRIVE EVEN UNDER OPPRESSION. YOU WILL SUCCEED EVEN IN PLACES WHERE YOU ARE SET UP TO FAIL. THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO COMPREHEND THE DOING OF THE LORD.
Speak it out: I will succeed no matter where I am placed. In the name of Jesus Christ!
3 His master observed that the LORD was with him and that the LORD made everything he was doing successful
4 So Joseph found favour in his sight and became his personal attendant. Potiphar appointed Joseph overseer of his household and put him in charge of everything he owned.
There is always someone observing you, whether you choose to realise and acknowledge this or not. Prying eyes are always waiting to watch you succeed or fail.
This was the case with Joseph and is most certainly the case with you too. Through God all that you do will be successful. God will reveal his glory through your life.
By his glory in your life, others will begin to identify you with Him. Through God you will find favour in the sight of your superiors. Others will lift you up because they want God to be with them as he is with you!
THE LORD IS YOUR BANNER. ALL GOODNESS WILL LOCATE YOU. YOU WILL RISE TO BETTER POSITIONS. SOMEONE WILL BE PROMOTED. THE LORD’S PRESENCE WILL OPEN DOORS FOR YOU.
Speak it out: The Lord will make me successful. I am favoured. The Lord is the lifter of my head and my restorer!
5 From the time Potiphar appointed him over his household and over all that he owned, the LORD blessed the Egyptian’s household for Joseph’s sake. The blessing of the LORD was on everything that he had, both in his house and in his fields.
The main thing that Joseph learnt from his pit experience, which he kept with him all through the rest of his life is to let God take the lead! When he spoke of his dream it was as if he meant to brag, at that point he put himself on the lead.
However he learnt his lesson and he put God first. When God leads, all that follows him is a success. When you are part of God’s entourage you know that no matter what the current situation looks like, it will end in victory! When you start a journey with God, he is sure to finish with you.
I challenge you to start your journey from today onwards with God. Whatever has been appointed to you will begin to succeed! The Lord’s blessing is upon everything that you have.
YOU ARE A BLESSING TO ALL WHO YOU SERVE. THE LORD’S HAND IS EVIDENT IN THE SUCCESS OF ALL THAT YOU LAY YOUR HANDS ON. YOU ARE BLESSED.
Speak it out: I give you charge of all that I have charge over Lord. I know not how tomorrow will be, but I commit it all to you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
6 So Potiphar left everything he had in Joseph’s care; he gave no thought to anything except the food he ate. Now Joseph was well built and good-looking.
If you are faithful with little you will indeed be trusted with much. As a result of the success that Joseph had been given of the Lord, doors began to open for him. In Egypt, the foreigners were not highly esteemed. Potiphar had multitudes of servants at his disposal, most of whom were natives.
Ordinarily it would have been expected of him to give charge to a native that he could trust, possibly someone he had known his entire life. The beauty of it all is that when you are faithful to God he is faithful to you, doors of uncommon favour; unheard of favour begin to open.
May this be your testimony! By your declaration and prayer today, you mark a new beginning in your life.
YOU WILL BE TRUSTED WITH MUCH. YOU ARE A GREAT STEWARD. NO WORRY WILL PLAGUE THE MINDS OF THOSE WHO LEAVE THINGS UNDER YOUR CARE, FOR YOU ARE UNDER JEHOVAH’S CARE
Speak it out: I am faithful with even the littlest of things! I am trusted with much. I serve the Lord!
8 But he refused, saying to his master’s wife, “Look, my master does not give any thought to his household with me here, and everything that he owns he has put into my care.
We live in an age of compromise. An age where people are willing to take any route to get to where they desire to be. Nepotism, corruption, and even sexual favours in exchange for better pay, better position or whatever else.
This did not start today. Joseph was faced by a similar situation. Had he compromised, life would have perhaps become more pleasant for him in Potiphar’s household. Potiphar’s wife would have perhaps put in a good word for him with her husband.
He would have perhaps elevated in more ways, besides the fleshly gratification that he would have gotten. So why wouldn’t he do it? Joseph knew one thing that we often forget; that any success that comes outside of God’s will does not last! Any success that comes from God is eternal!
He knew the value of honouring those who had honoured him, as Potiphar had. He moreover knew that God was the reason he had been favoured by Potiphar, thus any mishap would reflect badly on God! Reflect on that as you make decisions, as you consider opportunity!
YOU ARE HONOURABLE. YOU ARE PRINCIPLED. YOU WILL NOT BETRAY THOSE WHO PUT THEIR TRUST IN YOU. YOU WILL NOT BRING THE LORD’S NAME TO DISREPUTE.
Speak it out: I subdue any desires that arise in me that are outside of God! I am a great ambassador of the Lord, and my life is a testimony of that!
21 But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him kindness. He granted him favour in the sight of the prison warden.
The toughest moments for Joseph were these, when he would find himself in prison for no wrong that he had done. When he would in fact be imprisoned for following the Lord’s law! For refusing to bring the Lord’s name to disrepute.
He was perhaps angry with God for a second, for how does he not intervene when I have done his will? Yet he came to the realisation that God is sovereignly at work in all situations! He was with him in the pit, with him when Pharaoh’s wife accused him, and with him even at this moment in prison!
Regardless of where you may find yourself, stay on God’s path and his goodness will follow you! May you find favour in your lowest moments.
NO MATTER HOW TOUGH YOUR SITUATION IS, THE LORD IS WITH YOU. YOU ARE FAVOURED EVEN IN THE LOWEST OF PLACES.
Speak it out: I am favoured. The Lord is present and sovereign. He is at work always.
22 The warden put all the prisoners under Joseph’s care. He was in charge of whatever they were doing.
You need to read a few verses back in order to fully comprehend this. Joseph is in a prison for no wrong of his own. In fact, he is in prison for the wrong he refused to do. Now get this; when you are put in prison you are put there with an aim to be subdued.
They put you there in order to limit you. The warden’s duty is to make sure you remain in check, to make sure you do not go beyond the boundaries, beyond the limitations that are put before you! Yet by God’s grace Joseph found himself being elevated in that place that was meant for subjection!
May that be your story! May you be elevated to places and positions that will allow you to meet those who will open doors for your destiny.
EVEN IN YOUR LOWEST MOMENT YOU WILL STAND TALL. YOU WILL SHINE EVEN IN YOUR DARKEST MOMENTS. THE LORD IS YOUR FORTRESS, THE ROCK YOU RUN TO.
Speak it out: I wait on the Lord. I trust him at all times.
23 The warden did not concern himself with anything that was in Joseph’s care because the LORD was with him and whatever he was doing the LORD was making successful.
It was common practice in Egypt that one was held accountable for the actions or lack thereof of his subordinates. Thus by not concerning himself with anything that was in Joseph’s care, the warden trusted Joseph with his very life.
Had Joseph dismally failed in his duty, the Pharaoh would have possibly had both Joseph and the warden imprisoned or executed dependant on the magnitude of the error. By being faithful with little Joseph was trusted with much.
Be a good steward of all that God has put in your care today, and he will entrust you with much more.
YOU WILL SUCCEED IN ALL THAT YOU DO. THE LORD WILL SHINE THROUGH YOU. YOUR FALL WILL CHRONICLE YOUR RISE.
Speak it out: In the mighty name of Jesus Christ I am favoured. I am faithful with all that is entrusted to me.
2 Pharaoh was enraged with his two officials, the cupbearer and the baker,
3 so he imprisoned them in the house of the captain of the guard in the same facility where Joseph was confined.
This is possibly the most significant chapter of Joseph’s life story. This is testimony that God will move things on your behalf. Ordinarily Joseph was never going to meet the cupbearer or the baker. They were deep in Pharaoh’s chambers all the time.
Had Joseph not met them he would not have had a person to later recommend him to the Pharaoh. Had Joseph not been a faithful steward in prison he would have never been entrusted with the care of these important prisoners.
Had he not been entrusted with these prisoners he possibly would have never made an acquaintance that would get him to meet Pharaoh. By your declaration and prayer today God is about to move some positions. He is about to bring closer to you those who have significant roles to play in your destiny!
POSITIONS AND OFFICES WILL BE MADE ACCESSIBLE TO YOU. THE LORD WILL BRING TO YOU PEOPLE WHO WOULD NOT ORDINARILY AID YOU.
Speak it out: I am expectant. The Lord will deliver. My destiny is at hand!
14 But remember me when it goes well for you, and show me kindness. Make mention of me to Pharaoh and bring me out of this prison,
No matter how good you have been to people, they often forget what you have done for them once their fortunes have changed. May God follow up on those who have made promises to you.
With God as your debt collector, no debt will go unpaid! In the name of Jesus as you declare and pray today, may the Lord begin to sow seeds of remembrance in the minds of those that may have forgotten you. You will be remembered in this hour!
Many that you have not heard from for a long time will suddenly contact you. In the mighty name of Jesus!
MAY YOUR GOOD WORKS NEVER GO UNNOTICED. YOUR SKILLS WILL BE NOTICED. YOU WILL BE BLESSED FOR YOUR BLESSINGS TO OTHERS.
Speak it out: I am not forgotten. Good promises made to me will be honoured! A surprise is coming my way. In the name of Jesus!
Genesis 41:9 & 12
9 Then the chief cupbearer said to Pharaoh, “Today I recall my failures.
12 Now a young man, a Hebrew, a servant of the captain of the guards, was with us there. We told him our dreams, and he interpreted the meaning of each of our respective dreams for us.
Imagine standing behind a door, and what you desire being just behind that door. Knowing that the only way through that door was for an individual to unlock that door for you. What if that individual had actually promised to be there to open that door?
Yet you stand there and no one opens. Now understand this, no matter where you are right now, you could have been in a better place had someone honoured their word. Every individual can remember someone who said they’d do something for you and never did it.
The reason why this man remembered Joseph was because a situation arose that needed Joseph’s expertise! God gave Pharaoh a dream and only Joseph could decipher the message it carried.
As you pray today and declare, may God begin to create situations that require you, situations that will have you called before great people! Doors will begin to be open for you to use your gifts! Don’t take this lightly!
BY GOD THOSE WHO HAVE PROMISED YOU WILL BEGIN TO HONOUR THOSE PROMISES. THOSE WHO HAVE FORGOTTEN YOU WILL REMEMBER YOU. YOUR DEBTORS WILL REMEMBER AND SETTLE THEIR DEBTS. IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS!
Speak it out: My time is upon me. My season has come. In Jesus name!
29 Seven years of great abundance are coming throughout the whole land of Egypt.
30 But seven years of famine will occur after them, and all the abundance will be forgotten in the land of Egypt. The famine will devastate the land.
Trouble was looming on Egypt. A time of abundance was going to come. And the greatest mistake that is made in times of abundance is forgetting that tomorrow will come, that fortunes may change.
Thus people do not preserve what they have with view of tomorrow. When the time of famine does come, many are caught unawares, caught unprepared! Those who have this vision are able to avert tragedy. Those are the people who come out of the Great Depression unaffected!
Those who are wanted and desired by every major company! By your prayer and declaration today may God begin to open your eyes to identify abundance. To prepare for trouble before it arrives!
I DECLARE IN THE NAME OF JESUS. TRAGEDY WILL NOT CATCH YOU UNAWARE. TRAGEDY WILL BE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TO RISE. THE LORD WILL EQUIP YOU TO AVERT TRAGEDY.
Speak it out: I am prepared in advance. My eyes are open to infer into situations before they come!
38 So Pharaoh asked his officials, “Can we find a man like Joseph, one in whom the Spirit of God is present?”
39 So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Because God has enabled you to know all this, there is no one as wise and discerning as you are!
40 You will oversee my household, and all my people will submit to your commands. Only I, the king, will be greater than you.
Ladies and gentleman I’ll say this if no one else will; there is nothing better, no friend, no time, no money, and no family that is better than the presence of God. The spirit of God comes with liberty and fullness of joy.
That’s why King David at his lowest moment would cry to the Lord “Do not cast me from your presence, Take not your Holy Spirit.” He was willing to lose all else but the Holy Spirit. What he knew was that with the Holy Spirit and nothing else, he in fact had everything!
Don’t take this lightly, let’s replace Joseph’s name with your name. “Can we find a man like ————, one in whom the Spirit of God is present?” May the Lord enable you!
YOU WILL BE GREAT. THE LORD WILL RAISE YOU ABOVE ALL BUT HIMSELF. YOUR SKILLS AND INTEGRITY WILL BE A BEACON FOR THE LORD’S GREATNESS.
Speak it out: I am wise! I am discerning! The Spirit of God is in me! In Jesus’ name. Amen!
51 Joseph named the firstborn Manasseh, saying, “Certainly God has made me forget all my trouble and all my father’s house.”
I do not know you, but I know we have all gone through something bad! We all have troubles that we have been through! Job 14:1 says, “Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.” Only the Lord himself can make you forget your troubles. May that be your testimony. May God give you your Manasseh!
YOU WILL ENTER YOUR MANASSEH PERIOD. I DECLARE YOUR MANASSEH PERIOD IS UPON YOU. YOUR TROUBLES WILL BE FORGOTTEN. GOODNESS WILL OVERTAKE YOU. HIS BLESSINGS WILL OVERTAKE YOU.
Speak it out: The Lord can and will turn my situation around. My Manasseh is here!
52 He named the second child Ephraim, saying, “Certainly God has made me fruitful in the land of my suffering.”
To be fruitful is one thing, but there is absolutely nothing better than being fruitful in the land of your suffering. That place in which you have felt like giving up.
That place in which everyone looked at you and laughed. That place where no one thought you would never make it out of. I do not know what you are facing today, but by God your situation is about to change! Fruits of your pain are ready for harvest!
YOU WILL THRIVE IN THE DRIEST OF CONDITIONS. THE LORD HIMSELF WILL WATER YOU. YOU ARE FRUITFUL IN THE NAME OF JESUS I DECLARE THIS.
Speak it out: My Ephraim is upon me! My situation has changed!
6 Now Joseph was the ruler of the country, the one who sold grain to all the people of the country. Joseph’s brothers came and bowed down before him with their faces to the ground.
When Joseph had his dream, his brothers criticised him. They told him that his dream was not possible. They told him that he could not be ahead of them. Yet right here it all came to pass! I don’t know what has been said against you. I don’t know who has tried to discourage you.
May the Lord preserve those people so they may see it all come to pass! May they see you in those places that they said you would never reach. May they see you with those things that they said you would never have!
I DECLARE GOD WILL PRESERVE YOUR DETRACTORS. THEY WILL SEE YOU FLY HIGH ABOVE THEM. THEY WILL BE UNDER YOU.
Speak it out: My dreams will come to pass. Whatever the Lord said will be, will indeed be!
14 May the sovereign God grant you mercy before the man so that he may release your other brother and Benjamin! As for me, if I lose my children I lose them.”
To fully comprehend the magnitude that is contained in this verse you need to understand that when Jacob lost Joseph he felt he had lost everything. The bible says he mourned Joseph for the rest of his days, well until he was reunited with him.
At this moment he was on the verge of losing Benjamin. He had no choice but to put him on the line, yet he speaks God’s mercy on his children and sends them forth. Whatever you put into God’s hand today will be made safe. When Jacob committed his children into God’s hands, they became safe.
They found favour where they went. I don’t know who means the world to you, no matter how bleak a situation they may be in. As you declare and speak the word of God, the same Lord that did this for Jacob will do it for you!
SOMEONE IS AT HIS/HER LAST. I DECLARE AS YOU COMMIT YOUR LAST TO THE LORD, HE WILL MAKE IT A NEW START. A NEW SEASON IS UPON YOU. THE LORD WILL LIFT YOU UP!! WHATEVER HE HAS GIVEN YOU, HE WILL FAITHFULLY PRESERVE. YOUR CHILDREN ARE PRESERVED. YOUR HEALTH IS PRESERVED.
Speak it out: The Lord is watching over all my loved ones. My loved ones are made safe!
23 “Everything is fine,” the man in charge of Joseph’s household told them. “Don’t be afraid. Your God and the God of your father has given you treasure in your sacks. I had your money.” Then he brought Simeon out to them.
The men being addressed in this verse were absolutely petrified going into this. They feared that the money that had found its way back into their sacs would land them deep in trouble. How often do we fear what the Lord has put into our hands?
How often do we run away from the surprises that the Lord brings to us? How often do we fight to get off the path that he sets us on? As the man in charge told them I’ll say to you, “Everything is fine.” Do not let fear move you! Your God has indeed given you treasure!
THE LORD WILL SURPRISE YOU. YOU WILL FIND BLESSINGS IN PLACES WHERE YOU LEAST EXPECT. THE LORD IS YOUR TREASURE.
Speak it out: I am blessed. I am truly blessed. The Lord is my treasure! He has given me treasure even in places that I am yet to discover!
5 Now, do not be upset and do not be angry with yourselves because you sold me here, for God sent me ahead of you to preserve life!
These are the words that were spoken by Joseph when his brothers feared that he would harm them because they had tried to harm him earlier in his life. They were the root of all his troubles. The pit, sold to slavery, the times in prison, the accusation and all else in between those periods.
However in making their plan they failed to realise that God works all things to the good of his beloved. Their plot to send him to slavery had landed him in ruler ship. He had the power to smite them, yet he chose not to. For in his grace God’s glory was further revealed!
I do not know what you are going through, but I know God is at work! Whether you feel like you are in a pit with no one there to pull you out, I assure you, you are in that place for such a time as this. May your destiny begin to manifest wherever you are, in the Mighty name of Jesus!
WHAT MAN HAS MEANT TO HARM YOU WILL PROPEL YOU TO GREATER HEIGHTS. THE PITS THEY THROW YOU IN WILL BE A START FOR YOUR RISE. YOUR RISE WILL BLESS EVEN YOUR DETRACTORS.
Speak it out: I am sent forth to preserve life. All trials I have been through, and those I will still go through are all for a purpose. Jehovah is at work!
27 But when they related to him everything Joseph had said to them, and when he saw the wagons that Joseph had sent to transport him, their father Jacob’s spirit revived.
Jacob meets his children on their way back from Egypt. He is absolutely devastated when he does not see Benjamin. He fears that he has lost the one son that he loved the most, worsening the pain of losing Joseph! When he is told everything else in detail and shown the transport his spirit is revived!
I don’t know what trouble you are facing, or you think you are facing but I challenge you to wait on the Lord. I challenge you to be patient and see what the Lord has in store for you. Your spirit is due to be revived. Revival is about to visit you.
GOOD NEWS IS COMING TO YOU. BY GOD YOUR SPIRIT WILL BE REVIVED. I CANCEL ANY NEWS THAT WILL KILL YOUR SPIRIT IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
Speak it out: I am revived. The Lord will transport me to a place of joy. To a place where impossibilities are unheard of!
4 I will go down with you to Egypt and I myself will certainly bring you back from there. Joseph will close your eyes.”
This is the voice of the living God making a promise to Jacob. At a time when Jacob was on his way to meet Joseph, still with some reserved doubts in his heart, Jehovah speaks to him. Get this right, he does not say someone else will bring him back. He says “I myself!”
For someone today, God is taking your situation to handle it himself. Not for someone else to handle, not even his angels, but Jehovah himself. He says he will walk with you into the land in which you enter with doubt. You may not know what is ahead, but there’s comfort in knowing who is next to you!
Regardless of what happens he will personally bring you back from there! Jacob wanted most to see his son, Joseph. And here Jehovah says Joseph would close his eyes, which means that at the sight of death he would still have joy! May that be your story!
WHEREVER THE LORD TAKES YOU, HE WILL KEEP YOU SAFE. HE WILL BRING YOU OUT SAFE. WHAT HAS BROUGHT TEARS TO YOU WILL COME TO AN END. YOUR JOY IS HERE.
Speak it out: The Lord is with me! In my coming in and in my going out. I have peace and joy for the rest of my days!
5 Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Your father and your brothers have come to you.
6 The land of Egypt is before you; settle your father and your brothers in the best region of the land. They may live in the land of Goshen. If you know of any highly capable men among them, put them in charge of my livestock.”
What most will not understand is that Joseph’s family was allowed to settle in the land of Goshen which was the land of the Rameses. The Rameses were a royal dynasty, which meant that these foreigners were allowed to settle with royalty!
In a time of poverty, where they came from a land of famine, the Lord placed them in the choicest of lands! It does not matter what your last position was, or where you are coming from. When the Lord lifts you up he is not hindered by your past failures, he is not hindered by how low you are.
He will take you from the lowest of lowest places and place you in the highest place! In the name of Jesus, let that be your testimony!
YOU WILL BE USHERED INTO A PLACE TO OPEN DOORS FOR THOSE BEHIND YOU. FOREIGN LANDS WILL BE LEFT TO YOUR DISPOSAL. THE BEST WILL BE LEFT TO YOUR DISPOSAL.
Speak it out: The Lord has lifted me up! Higher than ever imagined! In the name of Jesus!
11 So Joseph settled his father and his brothers. He gave them territory in the land of Egypt, in the best region of the land, the land of Rameses, just as Pharaoh had commanded.
As asserted before the Rameses were an Egyptian royal dynasty. Take not of this; just because you have been blessed does not mean you will see the blessings! Many men blessed with wealth have died paupers! Many men blessed with health have died of disease!
The enemy’s eyes are fixed on those who are blessed. He will attack you in that area in which you are blessed, because if only he can bring you to doubt. If only he can bring you to shift your focus from the Lord then he can steal from you! Just as God has commanded, every blessing that he says is yours, is yours!
Your eyes will remain fixed on the Lord. No doubt, no negative words will move you away!
YOU WILL SIT WITH PRINCES OF FOREIGN LANDS. THE LORD WILL USHER YOU INTO PLACES THAT YOUR IMAGINATION COULD NOT CONJURE. YOU WILL BE A BLESSING TO YOUR FATHER’S HOUSE.
Speak it out: My eyes are focused on the Lord. I have great faith. No seed of doubt will find soil in me!
19 Why should we die before your very eyes, both we and our land? Buy us and our land in exchange for food, and we, with our land, will become Pharaoh’s slaves. Give us seed that we may live and not die. Then the land will not become desolate.”
This scripture shows the power that is contained in the prophetic. The power that is contained in paying attention and taking heed of Jehovah’s warnings! Perhaps the common Egyptians had not learnt of the word that the Lord had given to Pharaoh through his servant Joseph!
They were not prepared for the famine and thus found themselves at the mercy of those that had prepared. Joseph’s family had not even been in Egypt at the time when Joseph spoke the words. They had faced the famine first hand! Yet Jehovah had already sent Joseph ahead to rescue them at such a time.
May your ears be inclined to the voice of Jehovah! May he preserve you, even when you know not how! His strength shall be made perfect in your weakness!! When you at your last, his strength will lift you back up!
YOU ARE EXEMPT FROM SUFFERING. YOU WILL BE PROVIDED FOR EVEN WHEN THOSE AROUND STRUGGLE. THE LORD WILL PULL YOU FROM POVERTY TO A PLACE OF SUPPLY.
Speak it out: I am pulled out of my troubles. I am pulled out of suffering. The Lord has long created an escape for me!
22 But he did not purchase the land of the priests because the priests had an allotment from Pharaoh and they ate from their allotment that Pharaoh gave them. That is why they did not sell their land.
At this time the famine had reduced even the land owners to peasants. They were selling their land off for food! Yet the scripture above says he did not touch the land of the priests! 1 Peter 2:9 says that YOU are a chosen people, a royal PRIESTHOOD!!!
By that word you are preserved! The Lord will set you apart! No matter what troubles come, you will find yourself exempt from them. Testimonies of miraculous escapes are at hand!
Jehovah will preserve you, he will provide for you! When everyone has nowhere to run to, you will run to Jehovah and find refuge.
YOU ARE A HOLY PRIESTHOOD UNTO THE LORD. BY THIS SHALL YOU BE PRESERVED. NO HAND WILL TAKE AWAY FROM YOU THAT WHICH IS YOURS. YOU ARE SUFFICIENT IN THE LORD. YOU ARE CONTENT!
Speak it out: I am a chosen people! I am a royal priesthood!
11 Israel said to Joseph, “I never expected to see you again, but now God has allowed me to see your children too.”
The bible recounts how Jacob had long mourned Joseph. How his apparent death had taken all his joy away. How from that time he had not been the same. There may be a situation like that in your own life today, but God is about to turn it around! Jacob had no hope of seeing Joseph again.
He had seen his blood-stained coat of many colours. He had accepted the end of his son. God will allow you to see beyond that which you never expected to see again! Your hope will be restored!
Your joy will be restored. In the name of Jesus! By your prayer and declaration today, the atmosphere for a mighty move of the Lord is set!
THE LORD WILL BLESS YOU BEYOND YOUR EXPECTATIONS. HIS BLESSINGS WILL SHOCK YOU. HE WILL RESURRECT EVEN WHAT YOU HAVE DECLARED DEAD. IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST!
Speak it out: My expectations are surpassed by your greatness oh Lord!
13 Joseph positioned them; he put Ephraim on his right hand across from Israel’s left hand, and Manasseh on his left hand across from Israel’s right hand. Then Joseph brought them closer to his father.
14 Israel stretched out his right hand and placed it on Ephraim’s head, although he was the younger. Crossing his hands, he put his left hand on Manasseh’s head, for Manasseh was the firstborn.
Now Joseph is said to have positioned his children according to the blessings which he thought they ought to receive. Some of us have been unknowingly positioned in places according to what others think we ought to get.
No matter what hand tries to position you out of your rightful blessing may the hand of the Lord locate you today! Verse 14 says he “stretched out” in order to be able to reach him. Some of us have been pushed so far away from our blessings, but the Lord says he will stretch his hand today and locate you! Your blessing will not evade you! In the name of Jesus!
NO MATTER WHERE MEN POSITION YOU, THE LORD’S BLESSINGS WILL LOCATE YOU. YOU ARE PERFECTLY POSITIONED IN THE LORD.
Speak it out: The blessing of the Lord will locate me! I am blessed!
8 Judah, your brothers will praise you. Your hand will be on the neck of your enemies, your father’s sons will bow down before you.
9 You are a lion’s cub, Judah, from the prey, my son, you have gone up. He crouches and lies down like a lion; like a lioness – who will rouse him?
The one who has his hand on the neck of another is undoubtedly the one who is victorious in a duel. May that be your testimony! May your enemy be afraid to rouse you. You are indeed a lion’s cub! Your father is the lion of the tribe of Judah!
YOUR ENEMIES WILL FEAR YOU. I DECLARE YOU VICTORIOUS IN EVERY BATTLE THAT LIES AHEAD OF YOU IN THE MIGHTÝ NAME OF JESUS. GOD WILL GUARD YOU JEALOUSLY.
Speak it out: God is my defender, I am his cub! My enemies are afraid of me!
10 The sceptre will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs; the nations will obey him.
11 Binding his foal to the vine, and his colt to the choicest vine, he will wash his garments in wine, his robes in the blood of grapes.
12 His eyes will be dark from wine, and his teeth white from milk.
The sceptre is always in the hand of the ruler. The one in control is the one who has the sceptre in his hand! This is a blessing of abundance. Firstly to own a vine you’d have to be wealthy. Secondly to own the choicest vine you’d have to be even wealthier!
Furthermore, for you to tie your coat and foal to these vines you’d have to have vines in abundance! For your eyes to be dark from wine and your teeth to be white from milk means that you lack nothing. May no goodness evade you.
May your soul prosper! May your health prosper! May you have enough to bless those around you! In the mighty name of Jesus! Amen
THE LORD’S WORD WILL COME THROUGH YOU. RULERS AND GREATNESS WILL DESCEND FROM YOU. YOU WILL HAVE PLENTY. YOU WILL HAVE MORE THAN YOU NEED. YOU ARE HEALTHY AS YOU ARE WEALTHY.
Speak it out: I am blessed in soul, in health, and in wealth!
20 Asher’s food will be rich, and he will provide delicacies to royalty.
It is not for ordinary people to provide delicacies for royalty! The standard of the royal is presumably very high, and for one to be able to provide what they’d consider to be delicacies is special! May that be your testimony!
BY GOD YOUR SKILLS ARE REFINED. YOU ARE HEAD AND SHOULDERS ABOVE YOUR PEERS. YOUR ARE A LEADER IN YOUR SPHERE! YOUR HANDS WILL PRODUCE THE CHOICEST OF THINGS. KINGS WILL SEEK YOUR GIFTS AND TALENTS.
Speak it out: By Jehovah my skills are refined! My skills are no longer confined or defined by man!
22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, a fruitful bough near a spring whose branches climb over the wall.
23 The archers will attack him, they will shoot at him and oppose him.
24 But his bow will remain steady, and his hands will be skilful; because of the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob, because of the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel,
Not only does this word usher you into fruitfulness, but it also ushers you to a place near the source! Near the spring! Although you will face opposition, you will remain undefeated. Your hands will be skilful because of the Mighty God! Do not forget why you are skilful. It is because of the Mighty God! He will guide you.
NO BOUNDARY SHALL HOLD YOU BACK. YOU WILL BEAR FRUIT IN AND OUT OF SEASON. THOUGH ENEMIES MAY RISE AGAINST YOU, THE LORD IS YOUR DEFENDER, THUS YOU WILL PREVAIL.
Speak it out: I am attacked but never defeated. The Lord has made my hands skilful!
25 because of the God of your father, who will help you, because of the sovereign God, who will bless you with blessings from the sky above, blessings from the deep that lies below, and blessings of the breasts and womb.
26 The blessings of your father are greater than the blessings of the eternal mountains or the desirable things of the age-old hills. They will be on the head of Joseph and on the brow of the prince of his brothers.
Being children and descendants of Abraham this is a blessing for you and I. Take note, this blessing is not based on your works, it is not based on how much you give to the church or what-so-ever you may have been led to believe.
Simply because you are a descendant of Abraham, you are blessed! By virtue of God being a sovereign God, you are blessed! The blessing from sky to below the surface signifies complete covering, the Lord has covered you! Breasts represent nurturing, being able to nurture your blessing!
You may be blessed with a car, but if you are not able to nurture it by cleaning it, fuelling it and servicing it, it becomes a burden! That shall not be your case. The Lord will provide for you so you can provide for what he has blessed you with! As you pray and make these declarations, may this come to pass!
YOU WILL BEAR FRUIT. YOU WILL HAVE CHILDREN. YOU ARE EQUIPPED TO LEAD. YOUR BLESSINGS WILL EXCEED YOUR DESIRES.
Speak it out: I am fruitful, I am able to maintain what I have acquired!
3 They took forty days, for that is the full time needed for embalming. The Egyptians mourned for him seventy days.
Jacob had absolutely no relation to the Egyptians, except perhaps for his grandchildren who Joseph had with an Egyptian wife. If anything they may have actually despised him, for he was well catered for in the time of the drought when most Egyptians were reduced to having to sell all they had.
Jacob was a foreigner who had a choicer share of Egyptian resources than the average Egyptian. Yet for 110days they focused on the loss that his death had brought to them! They recognised his value! His family’s trouble had become their trouble.
May they recognise your value wherever you go. May they revere your family because of you, as it was with Joseph.
YOUR TROUBLE WILL BOTHER EVEN THOSE WHOM IT DOES NOT AFFECT. MANY HANDS WILL RISE TO AID YOU. YOUR TROUBLE WILL BE EVERYONE’S TROUBLE.
Speak it out: I am a blessing to everyone around me. I am a valuable member of my community!
31 There they buried Abraham and his wife Sarah; there they buried Isaac and his wife Rebekah; and there I buried Leah.
The life of Leah was one of neglect and one of exile even within her own home. She had not been her husband’s choice of a woman. Yet she was God’s choice of a mother! No matter who has neglected you, who has side-lined you, I’ll have you know that you are not second choice to God!
No matter whose eyes turn away from you, I’ll have you know that the eyes of Jehovah are on you day and night! Even to death Jehovah remained faithful to Leah. I do not know what they had done with Leah’s corpse, but God himself buried Leah!
The bible says “they buried Abraham and his wife Sarah”, “they buried Isaac and his wife Rebekah” and “I buried Leah”. The “I” being Jehovah. By your declaration and prayer today, no matter who leaves you, God will come to your rescue. Jehovah will give you rest!
GOD WILL PUT YOU IN PLACES WHERE MAN HAS LONG BLOCKED YOU. YOU WILL FIND REST WHERE YOUR HEART LONG DESIRED.
Speak it out: I rest in Jehovah’s arms! I am always on His mind!
20 As for you, you meant to harm me, but God intended it for a good purpose, so he could preserve the lives of many people, as you can see this day.
By sending Joseph ahead to Egypt God was able to preserve the life of Jacob and that of his whole family! His brothers had sought to harm him, not realising that his dream was not his alone. That his glory would be a blessing to them too.
With this final declaration in this publication, I’d like to encourage you to be merciful to those who have wronged you! May your mercy testify of Jehovah’s goodness! As you bless your detractors the Lord shall increase you.
EVERY HAND THAT RISES TO HARM YOU WILL ONLY SERVE TO PUSH YOU CLOSER TO YOUR DESTINY. ALL THINGS WILL INDEED WORK TOGETHER FOR YOUR GOOD. BY YOUR BLESSINGS EVEN YOUR DETRACTORS WILL BE BLESSED. BY YOUR MERCY UPON THEM THEY WILL KNOW GOD!!
Speak it out: I am obedient to the Lord. I am a blessing to even those who have sought my destruction. By this shall they know God!!
It is true, no man is an island. No matter how gifted you are you’ll not achieve your full potential unless the Lord surrounds you with a great team.
God knows this project would not have been possible without the whole Prayer Relay Movement team; all of you are amazing, to be able to set this vision ablaze.
To those who are hungry for the Lord, you made this book a necessity. I am grateful to you, for moving the Lord enough to raise a team to write this book just for you. Names are too many to mention, from Chiedza whose relentless obedience of the Lord has made this possible.
To Croft who’s always willing to use his art to glorify the Lord, or Cuthbert, or Ashly who always avail themselves for the work of the Lord. To Patricia who started this journey with us. And others I may not have mentioned by name, the Lord does reward those who diligently serve him.
To those who have covered our ministry in prayer, may the Lord water you as you have watered us. To those who took their time to write a review of this book, we are sincerely grateful.
To you the reader, thank you for reading this. Thank you for supporting this work. To those who have given a donation to the charity we are supporting, we are grateful. Those who give to the poor do lend to the Lord.
