Release your declarations!
By Madeline James
As I was sitting in my car at the stoplight waiting for it to turn green, the Holy Spirit invaded my thoughts. I heard him say,”Declarations bring breakthrough.” That phrase began to reverberate throughout my spirit. I saw in the spirit a person who began to open their mouth and make the declarations of the Lord. The declarations were like arrows being released from their mouth piercing and penetrating the atmosphere. The more they declared, the more the arrows pierced the atmosphere which led to an opening of breakthrough to the next realm. What a powerful picture of what happens when we release the Lord’s declarations.
What is a declaration? A declaration is to make known, formally, officially, or explicitly, to reveal your position (dictionary.com). When you begin to make declarations it reveals the posture of your heart, a posture of fear, doubt, unbelief, or one of faith. Luke 6:45 says, “that out of the overflow of your heart, your mouth speaks.” What are you declaring?
Job 22:28 declares, “You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you, so light will shine on your ways.” There is power in the words you speak. God created the heavens and the earth by speaking it into existence. Because we are made in his image, we also have the creative ability to speakinto existence or establish the things around us by our declarations. What are your declarations erecting in the spirit realm? Ask the Lord to show you? Declarations open portals and gateways in the spirit realm. Negative declarations have the power to dam up and block the flow of God in your life.
Many times we are waiting on God to bring the breakthrough into our lives. We must become aware or realize that we carry the breakthrough in us. The very thing we are waiting on resides in our spiritman. Releasing declarations mirrors now faith. Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” When you begin to make declarations it brings what is in the unseen realm into the seen. Prophetic promises hang in the balance of the unknow waiting for someone to bring it into their now.
When prophetic words are spoken over your life they hover over you. It’s your responsibily to pull them down so you can inhabit them. Prophetic words don’t neccessarily happen on their own. You have to declare them and work them until they begin to manifest in your life. You learn to beome the word and acuate it.
I see in the spirit, fear has tried to silence and paralyze your voice. Beloved it’s time to find your voice and begin to make declarations over you life. If the enemy can silence your voice, he can delay or sabotage your breakthrough. It’s time to lift your voice and declare the word of the Lord!
