Daily Declarations - Allow God to transform your thinking
Part of having faith is truly believing the promises that God has given us. If you have a hard time believing God’s promises for your own life, you can actually change your mind by speaking God’s truth over yourself. Speak the truth of God’s promises over your life and allow Him to transform your thinking. Romans 12:2 (ESV) says, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”. When you replace the false belief [enemy’s lies] with the true belief [God’s Word] you are renewing you mind. When someone proclaims Jesus Christ as Lord of their life, confesses their sins and asks for forgiveness, they then receive the gift of the Holy Spirit inside of them. This is when your spirit is made new. Once we are made new, we have to continue to renew our minds because the world is still trying to influence us, and unfortunately, we are subjected to many many lies throughout our lifetime.
Our thought life is one of the main areas where the enemy tries to deceive and convinces people to believe his lies. Deception is the enemy’s number one tool. It may seem a little awkward talking out loud to yourself, but if you can get past the initial awkwardness and give it a try, this process can truly make a dramatic difference in your life. We recommend speaking these declarations every day for a month, and watch how God’s truth can transform your thinking, and in turn, your life. Not only do they build your faith, but your words have power, and speaking these words affects the world around you.
Romans 4:17 (ESV) “as it is written, 'I have made you [Abraham] the father of many nations'—in the presence of the God in whom he [Abraham] believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist.”
Romans 10:9-10 (ESV) “because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.”
Declarations for Building your Faith
Faith is the evidence of things not seen (Heb. 11:1). Our “evidence” for things being true is not found in our circumstances but in God’s promises. We don’t deny negative facts in our lives, but we choose to focus on a higher reality: God’s truth. Faith indeed comes by hearing (Romans 10:17); therefore, we choose to speak these powerful truths to build our own faith. The following declarations are foundational to the building of your faith. They will increase your expectancy of God’s goodness; and, thus, will increase the manifestation of that goodness in your life. Jesus said, “According to your faith, so be it” (Matthew 8:13).

Declarations for Speaking to Mountains
Truth: One of the main “methods” Jesus and the apostles used in the gospels and Acts was to SPEAK TO things. You will notice that they did not ask God to heal people, to cast out demons, or to raise the dead; but they spoke directly to bodies, to demons, etc. Jesus encouraged us to speak to mountains in Mark 11:23. This set of declarations focuses much on our speaking to the various aspects in our lives.

- Any adversity, attack, accidents and tragedies that were headed my way are diverted right now in Jesus’ name.
- I speak to the raging waters in my life; peace, be still. I say to my mind; peace, be still. I say to my emotions; peace, be still. I say to my body; peace, be still. I say to my home; peace, be still. I say to my family; peace, be still. (Mark 4:39)
- Now I speak to every mountain of fear, every mountain of discouragement, every mountain of stress, every mountain of depression, every mountain of lack and insufficiency; and I say, “Be removed & cast into the sea in Jesus’ name!” (Mark 11:22-24)
