DECLARATIONS & DECREES: THE LORD LIFTS ME UP, HE RESTORES MY SOUL – I LACK NOTHING!
June 17, 2018 – Psalm 18:21-36; 23:1-6; 1 Peter 5:6-11; Acts 3:17-21 (NASB)
Psalm 23:1-6: 1 The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. 3 He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Psalm 18:21-36: 21 For I have kept the ways of the Lord and have not wickedly departed from my God. 22 For all His ordinances were before me, and I did not put away His statutes from me. 23 I was also blameless with Him, and I kept myself from my iniquity. 24 Therefore the Lord has recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in His eyes. 25 With the kind You show Yourself kind; with the blameless You show Yourself blameless; 26 With the pure You show Yourself pure, and with the crooked You show Yourself astute. 27 For You save an afflicted people, but haughty eyes You abase. 28 For You light my lamp; the Lord my God illumines my darkness. 29 For by You I can run upon a troop; and by my God I can leap over a wall. 30 As for God, His way is blameless; the word of the Lord is tried; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him. 31 For who is God, but the Lord? And who is a rock, except our God, 32 The God who girds me with strength and makes my way blameless? 33 He makes my feet like hinds’ feet and sets me upon my high places. 34 He trains my hands for battle, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. 35 You have also given me the shield of Your salvation, and Your right hand upholds me; and Your gentleness makes me great. 36 You enlarge my steps under me, and my feet have not slipped.
1 Peter 5:6-11: 6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, 7 casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. 8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 9 But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world. 10 After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you. 11 To Him be dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Acts 3:17-21: 17 “And now, brethren, I know that you acted in ignorance, just as your rulers did also. 18 But the things which God announced beforehand by the mouth of all the prophets, that His Christ would suffer, He has thus fulfilled. 19 Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; 20 and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, 21 whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time. 22 Moses said, ‘The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your brethren; to Him you shall give heed to everything He says to you. 23 And it will be that every soul that does not heed that prophet shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.’ 24 And likewise, all the prophets who have spoken, from Samuel and his successors onward, also announced these days. 25 It is you who are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant which God made with your fathers, saying to Abraham, ‘And in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed.’ 26 For you first, God raised up His Servant and sent Him to bless you by turning every one of you from your wicked ways.”
I write these decrees in the Name of Jesus Christ and in His authority and through His power. The Angelic troops stand ready to dispatch these decrees to the heavenly realms to the rulers, and authorities, and to post in the King’s Palace (Revelations 2 and 3, Ephesians 3:10, Esther 8:10, 13).
» I decree and declare, because the Lord is my SHEPHERD, I LACK NOTHING! I LAY DOWN in grassy pastures, and I WALK by quiet waters; HE CONTINUALLY RESTORES my inner person and GUIDES me in the RIGHT paths for HIS OWN NAME SAKE!
» I decree and declare my Father prepares a TABLE before me, even as my enemies watch; HE anoints my head with OIL from an OVERFLOWING CUP – the INDWELLING of HOLY SPIRIT! GOODNESS and GRACE PURSUE me every day of my life, and I WILL LIVE in the House of the Lord FOREVER!
» I decree and declare I KEEP the WAYS of the Lord, I have not done evil by leaving Him. HIS RULINGS are always before me. I am PURE-HEARTED with Him and I keep myself from sin. The Lord repays me for my UPRIGHTNESS, my devotion to His Son. The Father sees me through the CLEANSING BLOOD of Christ Jesus/Messiah Yeshua.
» I decree and declare God Almighty is MERCIFUL with those who show mercy; He is SINCERE with those who show sincerity; He is PURE with those who show purity! God SAVES the afflicted!

» I decree and declare you are HUMBLE under the Mighty Hand of God; so that at the RIGHT TIME He will LIFT YOU UP! You throw all your anxieties UPON HIM, because you know HE CARES ABOUT YOU and all that concerns your life.
» I decree and declare you STAND FIRM against the enemy, FIRM in your TRUST, knowing that your brothers and sisters throughout the World are suffering for their faith. You will have to suffer only a LITTLE WHILE; after that, God, Who is FULL of GRACE, will Himself RESTORE, ESTABLISH and STRENGTHEN you and make you FIRM!
» I decree and declare there is FORGIVENESS and SALVATION available for ALL. I decree hearts will be open and they will REPENT and TURN to God, so that their SINS MAY BE ERASED, and that TIMES of REFRESHING may come from the Lord’s PRESENCE.
» I declare Christ/Messiah will remain in Heaven UNTIL the TIME COMES for RESTORING EVERYTHING!
» I decree and declare a CLEANSING and UNIFYING of the people of this land as these decrees go forth.
In the name of King Jesus Christ, empowered and led of the Holy Spirit of God, we dispatch the Angelic troops, throughout this land and in the spirit realm, to deliver these decrees to all, both flesh and spirit. The enemy, the principalities and powers, have no authority to act against these decrees of our King, the Lord God Almighty; their actions will be of no effect to God’s chosen ones, but will be turned back on themselves for destruction.
The Lord God Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth, we praise Your Name for You are True and Faithful and Just to perform it. Amen!
