April 13, 2020 – Psalms 37:3-7, 16-19; 46:1-7; Philippians 4:4-9; Colossians 3:12-17; Hebrews 4:6-16 (WEB)
Psalm 37:3-7, 16-19
3 Trust in Yahweh, and do good.
Dwell in the land, and enjoy safe pasture.
4 Also delight yourself in Yahweh,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to Yahweh.
Trust also in him, and he will do this:
6 he will make your righteousness shine out like light,
and your justice as the noon day sun.
7 Rest in Yahweh, and wait patiently for him.
Don’t fret because of him who prospers in his way,
because of the man who makes wicked plots happen.…
16 Better is a little that the righteous has,
than the abundance of many wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,
but Yahweh upholds the righteous.
18 Yahweh knows the days of the perfect.
Their inheritance shall be forever.
19 They shall not be disappointed in the time of evil.
In the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we won’t be afraid, though the earth changes,
though the mountains are shaken into the heart of the seas;
3 though its waters roar and are troubled,
though the mountains tremble with their swelling. Selah.
4 There is a river, the streams of which make the city of God glad,
the holy place of the tents of the Most High.
5 God is within her. She shall not be moved.
God will help her at dawn.
6 The nations raged. The kingdoms were moved.
He lifted his voice and the earth melted.
7 Yahweh of Armies is with us.
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
4 Rejoice in the Lord always! Again I will say, “Rejoice!” 5 Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. 6 In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honorable, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report: if there is any virtue and if there is any praise, think about these things. 9 The things which you learned, received, heard, and saw in me: do these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
12 Put on therefore, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, a heart of compassion, kindness, lowliness, humility, and perseverance; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, if any man has a complaint against any; even as Christ forgave you, so you also do.
14 Above all these things, walk in love, which is the bond of perfection. 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body, and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your heart to the Lord.
17 Whatever you do, in word or in deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father, through him.
6 Seeing therefore it remains that some should enter into it, and they to whom the good news was preached before failed to enter in because of disobedience, 7 he again defines a certain day, today, saying through David so long a time afterward (just as has been said),
“Today if you will hear his voice,
don’t harden your hearts.”Psalm 95:7-8
8 For if Joshua had given them rest, he would not have spoken afterward of another day. 9 There remains therefore a Sabbath rest for the people of God. 10 For he who has entered into his rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from his. 11 Let’s therefore give diligence to enter into that rest, lest anyone fall after the same example of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and is able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 There is no creature that is hidden from his sight, but all things are naked and laid open before the eyes of him to whom we must give an account.
14 Having then a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let’s hold tightly to our confession. 15 For we don’t have a high priest who can’t be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but one who has been in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin. 16 Let’s therefore draw near with boldness to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and may find grace for help in time of need.
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 TRUST in the Lord/Adonai and do GOOD. As I DWELL in the Land, I will FEED ON FAITHFULNESS. I DELIGHT IN THE LORD/ADONAI, so He will give me the REQUESTS of my Heart.
» I decree and declare I COMMIT my Way to the Lord/Adonai; as I TRUST Him, HE WILL DO IT! God Almighty/El Shaddai will BRING OUT MY VINDICATION AS LIGHT, and my CAUSE will SHINE AS NOONDAY! I am STILL before the Lord/Adonai and WAIT PATIENTLY for Him! I will not fret over those who prosper in their way or over one who carries out wicked schemes.
» I decree and declare I REJOICE for what the Lord has given me; it is much better than the wealth of the wicked. For the arms of the wicked will be broken, while the Lord/Adonai KNOWS THE DAYS OF THE BLAMELESS – our inheritance ENDURES FOREVER! We will not be ashamed in an evil time and IN THE DAYS OF FAMINE WE ARE SATISFIED!
» I decree and declare God/Elohim is my REFUGE and STRENGTH, an EVER PRESENT HELP in trouble. I WILL NOT FEAR, though the Earth change, though the Mountains topple into the heart of the Seas, though its Waters ROAR and foam, though the Mountains QUAKE at their swelling.
» I decree and declare God/Elohim is in the midst of His City – He is in the MIDST OF HIS PEOPLE – SHE WILL NOT BE SHAKEN! God/Elohim will help her when mourning dawns. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms totter, He utters His voice, the Earth melts! The Lord of Hosts/Adonai Tzva’ot is with us. The God of Jacob is our STRONGHOLD! Selah – PAUSE IN HIS PRESENCE!
» I decree and declare I WILL ALWAYS REJOICE IN THE LORD/ADONAI! I will let my gentleness and boldness be known to all people, for the Lord/Adonai is NEAR! I will not be anxious, but in everything, by PRAYER and PETITION with THANKSGIVING, I present my requests to God/Elohim. The PEACE/SHALOM of God/Elohim, which surpasses all understanding, GUARDS MY HEART AND MY MIND IN CHRIST JESUS/MESSIAH YESHUA!
» I decree and declare I will DWELL ONLY on those things that are HONORABLE, JUST, PURE, LOVELY, COMMENDABLE, of any VIRTUE and ANYTHING WORTHY of PRAISE! I will put into practice the things that I have learned and heard that are HOLY and full of INTEGRITY. I PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME!
» I decree and declare, as God’s CHOSEN PEOPLE, clothe yourselves in TENDER COMPASSION, KINDNESS HUMILITY, GENTLENESS AND PATIENCE – bearing with one another and FORGIVING EACH OTHER! Above all things PUT ON LOVE, which is the bond of PERFECT HARMONY.
» I decree and declare the PEACE/SHALOM of Christ/Messiah RULES IN MY HEART – to this PEACE/SHALOM I was called into ONE BODY. I AM THANKFUL! We allow the WORD OF CHRIST/MESSIAH to DWELL IN US RICHLY, teaching and admonishing one another with all WISDOM!
» I decree and declare TODAY IS THE DAY! If you HEAR His voice, do not harden your hearts! There remains a Sabbath/Shabbat REST for the People of God. Know that the one who has ENTERED GOD’S REST has also CEASED from his own work, just as God did from His! We are now entering into His rest, so that we will not fall through a pattern of disobedience.
» I decree and declare the WORD of God/Elohim is LIVING and ACTIVE and SHARPER than any two-edged sword – PIERCING right through to a separation of Soul and Spirit, joints and marrow, and able to JUDGE the thoughts and intentions of the Heart. No creature is hidden from Him, but ALL ARE NAKED and EXPOSED to the eyes of Him to whom we must give an account.
» I decree and declare Jesus Christ/Yeshua the Messiah is our great High Priest/Kohen Gadol Who passed through the Heavens. I will HOLD FIRMLY TO MY CONFESSED ALLEGIANCE. I will DRAW NEAR to the Throne of GRACE with BOLDNESS, so that I may receive MERCY and find GRACE for help in the time of need.
» 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!
