DECLARATIONS & DECREES: THE LORD WAITS FOR THOSE WHO SEEK HIM EARNESTLY!
October 23, 2018 – Lamentations 3:21-36; Jeremiah 29:10-14; Zephaniah 2:3, 6-7; Colossians 3:1-4, 12-17 (NASB)
Lamentations 3:21-36: 21 This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope. 22 The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. 23 They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. 24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I have hope in Him.” 25 The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him. 26 It is good that he waits silently for the salvation of Lord. 27 It is good for a man that he should bear the yoke in his youth. 28 Let him sit alone and be silent since He has laid it on him. 29 Let him put his mouth in the dust, perhaps there is hope. 30 Let him give his cheek to the smiter, let him be filled with reproach. 31 For the Lord will not reject forever, 32 For if He causes grief, then He will have compassion according to His abundant lovingkindness. 33 For He does not afflict willingly or grieve the sons of men. 34 To crush under His feet all the prisoners of the land, 35 To deprive a man of justice in the presence of the Most High, 36 To defraud a man in his lawsuit— of these things the Lord does not approve.
Jeremiah 29:10-14: 10 “For thus says the Lord, ‘When seventy years have been completed for Babylon, I will visit you and fulfill My good word to you, to bring you back to this place. 11 For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile.’
Zephaniah 2:3, 6-7: 3 Seek the Lord, all you humble of the earth who have carried out His ordinances; seek righteousness, seek humility. Perhaps you will be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.…
6 So the seacoast will be pastures, with caves for shepherds and folds for flocks. 7 And the coast will be for the remnant of the house of Judah, they will pasture on it. In the houses of Ashkelon they will lie down at evening; for the Lord their God will care for them and restore their fortune.
Colossians 3:1-4, 12-17: Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 [a]Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. 3 For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.…
12 So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you.14 Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. 15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.
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 I KNOW IN WHOM I HOPE, the Lord God Almighty/Adonai El Shaddai, my Father/Abba! I turn to something that gives me HOPE – that the GRACE of the Lord/Adonai is not exhausted, that His COMPASSION has not ended. His GRACE and COMPASSION are new every morning – HOW GREAT IS YOUR FAITHFULNESS, Lord/Adonai!
» I decree and declare my Lord Jesus Chris/Adonai Yeshua Messiah YOU are all I have, therefore I put my HOPE in You! You are GOOD to all who WAIT for You, to those who SEEK YOU OUT. It is good and prudent to WAIT PATIENTLY for the SAVING HELP of the Lord/Adonai!
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai takes note of those who trample underfoot any of His People, when they deprive a person of justice. The Lord/Adonai will STAND STRONG in your defense and will not allow you to be overcome. He will raise you above those who wish to harm you.
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai REMEMBERS you and will FULFILL His good PROMISES to you, to bring you to the territory and lands He has promised. For He says, “For I know what PLANS I have in mind for you, plans for WELL-BEING, not for bad things; so that you can have HOPE and a FUTURE!”
» I decree and declare when you call to God, He will LISTEN to you. When you SEEK Him, you will FIND Him, provided you SEEK for Him WHOLEHEARTEDLY, then He will let you FIND HIM! The Lord will bring you back and gather you from the places that you have been driven.
» I decree and declare you who are HUMBLE and who exercise JUSTICE, SEEK the Lord; seek HUMILITY that you will be hidden on the day of the Lord’s anger.
» I decree and declare the seacoast will be reduced to Pastures, Meadows for Shepherds, pens for sheep; and the Coast will belong to the REMNANT of the House of the Lord! The Lord REMEMBERS you and will RESTORE your fortunes.
» I decree and declare you were RAISED with Christ/Messiah, and you SEEK the things Above, where He is SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD. You FOCUS your minds on the things ABOVE, not on the things here on Earth. For you have died and your life is HIDDEN with Christ/Messiah in God!
» I decree and declare you are God’s CHOSEN PEOPLE, HOLY and dearly LOVED! You are clothed with feelings of COMPASSION and KINDNESS, HUMILITY, GENTLENESS and PATIENCE.
» I decree and declare that you BEAR WITH ONE ANOTHER. If anyone has a complaint against someone else, FORGIVE him. Indeed, just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you must forgive.
» I decree and declare that above all things you clothe yourselves with LOVE, which binds everything together perfectly, and you let the PEACE/SHALOM which comes from Christ/Messiah be your heart’s DECISION MAKER, for this is why you were called to be part of a single Body.
» 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!
