Declaring into the Year!!!


Lord, You are ALREADY ahead of us! You have already gone before us and You are ALREADY far into this year. You have already declared how the year is going to go, so we partner with Your Word and with Your declaration over 2019 and the years to come!

We declare not only that this is the day that the Lord has made and we rejoice in it, but this is the year that the Lord has made and we commit to rejoice in it. We are rooted and grounded in the love of God and the eyes of our understanding are opened to truly see Him. We have a sound mind, we are stable in our emotions, and we abide in Him. Every area in us that is not surrendered to the Lord, submits and surrenders to Him, NOW, so that we hear His voice clearly and we are continually filled with His plans, His intentions, and His promises for our lives. We see the goodness of the Lord and we are surrounded with His favor like a shield. We are surrounded about with an army of angels that protect, guard, and defend us. No harm comes to us or to our families.

Our marriages are rejuvenated, refreshed, whole and bear good fruit. Our husbands seek God continually and stand strong as the spiritual leaders of our homes. We, who are wives, surrender to God and submit to our anointing as helpers, nurturers, and spiritual deliverers of our husband’s dreams, purposes, and Godly plans. We, who are single, experience the depths of God’s love and intimacy while we are in waiting. As singles, desiring marriage, our husbands hearts are knit to our hearts, even NOW, and they hear the voice of God to be drawn to find us…as wives.  As singles, content in singleness, we experience peace that passes all understanding in our relationship solely with HIM!

All of our children are taught of the Lord and GREAT will be their peace. Our families that are broken and lost will be repaired, rescued, and saved. Our broken hearts will be mended and our souls will be filled with joy. We are blessed with trusting relationships and partnerships that help us advance the Kingdom of God! We have spiritual and natural seeds to plant into this year, because He gives seeds to the sower. We will see good ground that we are to spiritually plant and naturally plant into this year, and these seeds will spring up and bear good fruit. We will experience increase spiritually that will manifest naturally. We will walk continually in the plans and intentions of God. We will experience new encounters with God and depths of intimacy with Him that we have never known. His reach in us will expand our reach to others. 2019 is a year that is ALREADY set and ALREADY blessed by God. We expect it, we receive it, we declare it, and we establish it in Jesus Name!

Happy New Year!

Thought for the week


Do you know that you are a woman of impact, a woman that brings “flavor” to things? So, what do you bring flavor to? Do you know that you are a woman of influence, a woman that “seasons” the lives of others? So, who are you “seasoning”? Are you sooo aware of the strength (flavor) God has given you that you can’t help but do great things, as you move in His power and grace? Why not? It’s in your DNA!!! Life throws us curve balls that literally knock us off course. Yes, sometimes life causes us to lose our focus, lose our drive, lose even ourselves. But despite all of this, DNA never changes. It’s built in you, threaded into every fiber of your very being. God intended it this way. He divinely knit His flavor, His seasoning into your spiritual DNA. And it is your spiritual DNA that causes you to rise above every thing that knocks you down and stands in the way of you being all that God intends. So rise up…lift your head up…square your shoulders strong…stand assured. Be intentional about who you will season, and bring flavor to this week. You have no choice, it’s in your DNA! #livingempowered #womanwithflavor #itsinyourDNA

“Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? Flavorless salt is useless, good for nothing,  and will end up in the garbage.” (Matthew‬ ‭5‬:‭13‬ MSG)
