Devotions and Declarations

Sunday, December 3,  2017 Wholeness, Today's declaration is one of my favorites from Pastor Osteens' Declarations.   I DECLARE God’s incredible blessings over my life. I will see an explosion of God’s goodness, a sudden widespread increase. I will experience the surpassing greatness of God’s favor. It will elevate me to a level higher than I ever dreamed of. Explosive blessings are coming my way. This is my declaration.

Declarations and Devotions

Sunday, November 26, 2017 Wholeness, Today's declaration is one of my favorites from Pastor Osteen's 31 Days of Declaration. I DECLARE I am grateful for who God is in my life and for what He’s done. I will not take for granted the people, the opportunities, and the favor He has blessed me with. I will look at what is right and not what is wrong. I will thank Him for what I have and not complain about what I don’t have. I will see each day as a gift from God. My heart will overflow with praise and gratitude for all of His goodness.  This is my declaration.

Devotions and Declarations - Living Debt Free - Romans 13:8

Sunday November 19, 2017 Wholeness, Today's devotion is about "Living Debt Free" from Joyce Meyers Devotions. Romans 13:8 8  Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.  and Luke 19:17 17  And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities. The battle of our finances is really a spiritual battle. We are tempted to spend more than we are able to pay off and that creates stress, frustration  and pressure, thus distracting us from our walk with God. So learn and practice living within your income boundaries, then watch God expand them.

Devotions and Declarations - God Watches Over The Sparrows - Matthew 6:25-33

Sunday, November 12, 2017 Wholeness, Today's devotion was my Mother's favorite. Matthew 6:25-33 25  Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26  Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27  Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28  And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29  And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30  Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31  Therefore take no thought, saying, What
