YOU SHALL DECREE A THING AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS

TEXT: JOB 22:28
"Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways."
There is great power of accomplishment in our spoken words. As children of God, the Lord has delegated some of His rights to us. One of these rights is the power and ability to decree a thing and see it become established.
Jeremiah 1:9-10 says "then the LORD stretched out His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me, "Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. "See, I have appointed you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, To pluck up and to break down, To destroy and to overthrow, To build and to plant."
If you have faith and you believe in God, you don't have much stress to deal with any situation; no matter how difficult it may look. All you need to do is to speak the word, decree what you want to see to come to manifestation; and it shall be done and established.
As you speak God's word with faith and confidence, divine power accompanies it to make it fulfilled. When David went to face Goliath in 1st Samuel chapter 17, from verse 45 down to 50.
Before David could raise his hand to fight the battle physically, he had fought and won the battle spiritually by sending out "God's spiritual bullet" ( name and the word of God).
45 Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 46 This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you. And this day I will give the carcasses of the camp of the Philistines to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. 47 Then all this assembly shall know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hands.”
48 So it was, when the Philistine arose and came and drew near to meet David, that David hurried and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine. 49 Then David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone; and he slung it and struck the Philistine in his forehead, so that the stone sank into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the earth. 50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him. But there was no sword in the hand of David."
The scripture made us to know that there is no force or power that is greater than the name of God. At the mention of the name of God every knee must bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord (Philippians 2: 9-11).
The name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous runs to Him and they are saved (Proverbs 18:10).
What difficult situation are you?  Don't be afraid to speak and decree the powerful word of God into the situation. Decree healing into that sick body, speak life upon that dead business, decree fruitfulness into that barren womb. What about the dead situation? Common speak life upon all those dry bones. The Lord is waiting for your declaration, so that He can stamp it with the zeal of accomplishment.
Do your part by decreeing the word, and the Lord will fulfil His own part by making the word come to pass. The only thing that could make a believer's word not to hold water when spoken is sin, unbelief/ lack of faith. Void yourself of sin, ask for forgiveness, repent genuinely, act in faith and be confident to decree a thing and watch as God backs up your word and bring it to pass.
I speak to you today that the power to decree a thing, and see it become established shall rest upon you in Jesus name. Amen.
Shalom.
