I am reminded today of a story in the bible while having a conversation with someone. He had been making declarations, confessions on his life regarding some changes he needs to see happen. ‘ I am wealthy’, he proclaimed loudly . ‘Your declarations are contrary to your reality’ said a friend. The reason being that the present situation of the one making the declaration does not match what he’s saying.
This is the point of making declarations and it is a key point in manifesting the kind of life we want to see for ourselves. We need to speak out our belief and boldly. Say it as you want it to be and not as it is or has been is the key to changes. Speak the changes you want to see manifested. As he narrated the mockery to me, I remembered a few stories in the BOOK.
Even the Creator spoke life into being in the midst of chaos. ‘Let there be light’. He calls those things which do not exist as though they did. We are called to be emulators. We are also instructed to speak those things into being which do not already exist. He even says His name is ‘I am’. That means I am whatever you want me to be. Unfortunately we only love reading the BOOK but few know that it only becomes alive when we speak. As it is often said, ‘a closed mouth cannot be fed’. ‘A closed mouth is a closed destiny’. As I write this I feel I am speaking new truths to myself. I need to use my mouth more.
As I hear I speak. As I speak I see changes. It may not be instant but it will surely come. Many books, tapes, seminar have been produced on this subject, yet many of us are yet to learn. Is is doubt or unbelief preventing us from acting on this truth? Whatever it takes, changes only come by taking action. This is sometimes called ‘manifesting’.
Once upon a time, there was famine. ‘This time tomorrow there would be increase’ said a prophet . Some doubters made fun of the statement. ‘You will see it and not partake of it’ he declared. So it was they saw plenty as the prophet declared but they partook not. May that not be our lot. As a prophet of my life I speak and see positive things happening in my life.
Declarations are easy to do and can be made by personalizing scriptures or make up your positive words which you repeat to yourself regularly. This is not limited to religious people. Speaking to ourselves has been proven to have significant effects and resulted in positive changes. Start your today.
