DECLARATIONS & DECREES: I WALK IN THE GLORY OF GOD & FOLLOW HIS LEADING!
May 13, 2019 – Joshua 1:1-9; 3:2-13; 4:10-18; Psalm 27:1-14 (NASB)
Joshua 1:1-9: 1 Now it came about after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, that the Lord spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ servant, saying, 2 “Moses My servant is dead; now therefore arise, cross this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them, to the sons of Israel. 3 Every place on which the sole of your foot treads, I have given it to you, just as I spoke to Moses. 4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon, even as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and as far as the Great Sea toward the setting of the sun will be your territory. 5 No man will be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I have been with Moses, I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you. 6 Be strong and courageous, for you shall give this people possession of the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. 7 Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go. 8 This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success. 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 3:2-13: 2 At the end of three days the officers went through the midst of the camp; 3 and they commanded the people, saying, “When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God with the Levitical priests carrying it, then you shall set out from your place and go after it. 4 However, there shall be between you and it a distance of about 2,000 cubits by measure. Do not come near it, that you may know the way by which you shall go, for you have not passed this way before.”
5 Then Joshua said to the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.” 6 And Joshua spoke to the priests, saying, “Take up the ark of the covenant and cross over ahead of the people.” So they took up the ark of the covenant and went ahead of the people.
7 Now the Lord said to Joshua, “This day I will begin to exalt you in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that just as I have been with Moses, I will be with you. 8 You shall, moreover, command the priests who are carrying the ark of the covenant, saying, ‘When you come to the edge of the waters of the Jordan, you shall stand still in the Jordan.’” 9 Then Joshua said to the sons of Israel, “Come here, and hear the words of the Lord your God.” 10 Joshua said, “By this you shall know that the living God is among you, and that He will assuredly dispossess from before you the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Hivite, the Perizzite, the Girgashite, the Amorite, and the Jebusite. 11 Behold, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth is crossing over ahead of you into the Jordan. 12 Now then, take for yourselves twelve men from the tribes of Israel, one man for each tribe. 13 It shall come about when the soles of the feet of the priests who carry the ark of the Lord, the Lord of all the earth, rest in the waters of the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan will be cut off, and the waters which are flowing down from above will stand in one heap.”
Joshua 4:10-18: 10 For the priests who carried the ark were standing in the middle of the Jordan until everything was completed that the Lord had commanded Joshua to speak to the people, according to all that Moses had commanded Joshua. And the people hurried and crossed; 11 and when all the people had finished crossing, the ark of the Lord and the priests crossed before the people. 12 The sons of Reuben and the sons of Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh crossed over in battle array before the sons of Israel, just as Moses had spoken to them; 13 about 40,000 equipped for war, crossed for battle before the Lord to the desert plains of Jericho.
14 On that day the Lord exalted Joshua in the sight of all Israel; so that they revered him, just as they had revered Moses all the days of his life.
15 Now the Lord said to Joshua, 16 “Command the priests who carry the ark of the testimony that they come up from the Jordan.” 17 So Joshua commanded the priests, saying, “Come up from the Jordan.” 18 It came about when the priests who carried the ark of the covenant of the Lord had come up from the middle of the Jordan, and the soles of the priests’ feet were lifted up to the dry ground, that the waters of the Jordan returned to their place, and went over all its banks as before.
Psalm 27:1-14: 1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the defense of my life; whom shall I dread? 2 When evildoers came upon me to devour my flesh, my adversaries and my enemies, they stumbled and fell. 3 Though a host encamp against me, my heart will not fear; though war arise against me, in spite of this I shall be confident.
4 One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I shall seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord and to meditate in His temple. 5 For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; in the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock. 6 And now my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me, and I will offer in His tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.
7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice, and be gracious to me and answer me. 8 When You said, “Seek My face,” my heart said to You, “Your face, O Lord, I shall seek.” 9 Do not hide Your face from me, do not turn Your servant away in anger; You have been my help; do not abandon me nor forsake me, O God of my salvation! 10 For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the Lord will take me up.
11 Teach me Your way, O Lord, and lead me in a level path because of my foes. 12 Do not deliver me over to the desire of my adversaries, for false witnesses have risen against me, and such as breathe out violence. 13 I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. 14 Wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart take courage; yes, wait for the Lord.
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 (Revelation 2 and 3, Ephesians 3:10, Esther 8:10, 13).
» I decree and declare I am moving forward to TAKE the territory ORDAINED by the Lord/Adonai! Every place on which the sole of my foot treads, He has given to me. No one will be able to stand before me all the days of my life. The Lord God Almighty/Adonai El Shaddai will not fail me nor forsake me!
» I decree and declare I will be STRONG! With His STRENGTH and GUIDANCE, I will COMPLETE that which He has Commissioned me to do. I will be very STRONG and RESOLUTE to OBSERVE diligently the Word of the Lord/Adonai. I will not turn from it to the right or the Left, so that I will be SUCCESSFUL wherever I go.
» I decree and declare I will MEDITATE on the Word of the Lord/Adonai Day and Night, so that I will be CAREFUL to do Everything written in it. For then I will make my Ways PROSPEROUS and I will be SUCCESSFUL. I will be STRONG! I will not be terrified or dismayed, for the Lord my God/Adonai Elohai is with me wherever I go.
» I decree and declare I CONSECRATE myself daily to the PURPOSES and WAYS of God/Elohim, through Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah my Lord/Adonai! There is nothing worth doing, if the Lord/Adonai is not in it, if He is not leading. As the Children of Israel consecrated themselves, to WALK in HOLINESS and OBEDIENCE to God/Elohim, so do I!
» I decree and declare I will FOLLOW the Leading of the Holy Spirit/Ruach HaKodesh; I DESIRE to walk in the STEPS of the Lord Jesus Christ/Adonai Yeshua Messiah alone. I SEEK only to DWELL in the Lord’s Presence and for His PRESENCE, His Spirit/Ruach, to FILL me to OVERFLOWING. My DESIRE is to carry the POWER and GLORY of the Lord/Adonai everywhere I go.

» I decree and declare I will STEP FORTH as the Lord/Adonai leads. It is His STRENGTH and His STRATEGY by which the VICTORY will be won. My TRUST is in God/Elohim alone, I will not fear. Behold the SOVEREIGN of all the Earth is Advancing before me and is my Rear Guard. He is the VICTOR!
» I decree and declare, as the Priests/Kohanim carried the Ark which contained God’s/Elohim’s Law and miracle manna and over which His GLORY dwelt, so each Believer carries His PRESENCE and POWER throughout the Earth. EXPECT His GLORY to touch the ATMOSPHERE, to touch the Individuals near you. SUBMIT to Him and He will USE YOU!
» I decree and declare the Lord/Adonai is my LIGHT and my SALVATION, I will not fear! He is the STRONGHOLD of my Life; there is none I will dread!
» I decree and declare the one thing I have ASKED of the Lord/Adonai is to DWELL in His Presence ALL THE DAYS of my Life, to Behold His BEAUTY, and to MEDITATE in His Temple. The Lord/Adonai HEARS me when I call and is GRACIOUS to me and ANSWERS me. I PRAISE Your Name, Lord God Almighty/Adonai El Shaddai!
» 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!
