Sir Godfrey Gregg D. DIV, LOM
IT’S THE TRUTH!
We need to declare – and believe – that we are, indeed, what Jehovah says we are, regardless of what is going on around us! We are above and not beneath; more than conquerors. And if God be for us, who can be against us?
It’s time we confess the eternal truths of the Father over ourselves, our families, and our nation. We are who God says we are – and can do whatever He declares we can do.
You may ask, “How can I say such things when my life is such a mess? Aren’t I a hypocrite when I say I am healed by the stripes of Jesus and my body is noticeably sick?” Absolutely not!
“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.” James 3:17
The reason we can declare, decree, and affirm God’s Word over us is because it is pure and without hypocrisy. We are simply stating the truth of what God has already spoken over us.
A hypocrite is someone who pretends to be what he is not – someone who doesn’t live what he or she preaches. But if the Lord says we are one way and we are speaking and acting contrary to the truths God has already declared over us, are we not as guilty? The Lord has done some absolutely outstanding things for us, and yet, our words are strong against His truths, implying they are lies. No, He is true though every man is a liar (Romans 3:4).
