Personal Proclamations of Faith

The Word of God says, "I believed, therefore I spoke."  So I choose to proclaim what I believe.  If you are a Spirit-filled believer, I would like to share with you some proclamations that you can speak over your life each day.  Say them out loud with confidence and your faith will grow.

Accusations, slander and forgiveness
No weapon that is formed against us shall prosper, and every tongue that rises against us in judgment we refute.  This is our heritage as servants of the LORD, And our vindication is from You, LORD of hosts. (from Isa 54:17)

If there are those speaking harm against us or praying against us, we forgive them.  And having forgiven them, we bless them in the name of the Lord.

I understand that if I forgive others, My heavenly Father will also forgive me, and if I do not forgive others, then my Father will not forgive me (Mat 6:14-15).  So I choose to “pre-forgive” whomever might hurt or offend me today.

Safety
The bolts of our gates will be iron and bronze, and our strength will equal our days.  There is no one like the God of Jeshurun, who rides across the heavens to help us and on the clouds in his majesty. The eternal God is our refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. He will drive out our enemies before us, saying, ‘Destroy them!’ (from Dt 33:25-27)

Deliverance from attack
The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack, and will bring me safely to His heavenly kingdom; to Him be the glory forever and ever. Amen. (2Ti 4:18)

The Man at God’s right hand, Jesus Christ, who loved me and died for me now lives in me.  (Gal 2:2)

The devil and his demons are eternally defeated, since Christ has triumphed over them through the cross (Col 2:15).  I have overcome them, because greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.   (1 Jn 4:4)

Jesus has given me authority over all the power of the enemy and nothing will injure me. (Lk 10:19)

In all my difficulties, I have complete victory through him who loved me.  (Rom 8:37)

Financial provision
God is able to make all grace abound toward us, so that we always having all sufficiency in everything, may have an abundance for every good deed;  (from 2Co 9:8)

Whether the world or life or death or things present or things to come; all things belong to us. (1Co 3:21-22).  In Christ, we possess all things. (2Co 6:10) The Father has chosen gladly to give us the kingdom. (Lk 12:32)

Illness
I will not die, but I will live and tell what the LORD has done (from Ps 118:17)

The Lord will fulfill His purposes for me. (Ps 138:8)

and Jesus Himself bore my sins in His body on the cross, so that I might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds I was healed. (from 1Pe 2:24)

"He heals all of my diseases." Ps 103:1-5

“He sends His Word and heals me.” (Ps 107:20)

The Lord declares that He has restored me to health And he has healed me of my wounds (Jer 30:17)

Healing and miracles
And Jesus gave me power and authority over all the demons, to cast them out, and to heal every kind of disease and every kind of sickness. And He sent me out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to perform healing. (Mat 10:1; Luk 9:1-2)

I have received of the fullness of Christ (Jn 1:19).  I have the authority to do the same works that Jesus did, by doing them in His name (Jn 14:12)

"These signs accompany me by faith: in Jesus’ name I cast out demons, I speak with new tongues; I pick up serpents, and if I drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt me; I lay hands on the sick, and they recover." (Mar 16:17-18)

With God nothing is impossible (Luk 1:37)

Through faith in Christ, all things are possible to me (Mk 9:23)

Because I have faith in God, I say to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and I do not doubt in my heart, but believe that what I say is going to happen. It will be granted me. All things for which I pray and ask, believing that I have received them, they will be granted me. (Mar 11:22-24)

Putting it All Together
These are just few examples.  Let me encourage you to read the Bible every day.  And as you read, make note of Scriptures that you want to proclaim over yourself.  Then as I have done here, you can modify the language to personalize it for yourself.

Author's note: If you have not yet been baptized in the Holy Spirit, please read Baptized with the Spirit.  If you have not yet been baptized with the fire of God, then please read Holy Fire Baptism.If you enjoyed this post, you  may also access my complete blog directory at "Writing for the Master."

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
