“If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9

“If” is a game-changer word. Your “if” determines your journey and destination. When the Holy Spirit reveals the Lord Jesus to you, what is your response? Are you willing to humbly and courageously acknowledge Him and shout His name for all to hear? When you do, He promises to publicly acknowledge you.

Declaration: I will shout for all to hear that Jesus is Lord! I believe in my heart and do not doubt His goodness.

Declaring the Word

Jesus talked about the devil, our enemy, yet some Christians scream, “Oh, no. That’s too scary for us.” Okay, then. Run off, drink wine and watch Netflix for the rest of your life but get out of our way and let the people of God walk in victory.

The Bible talks about wandering spirits and sometime a spirit will just show up in your house. It doesn’t mean you don’t have faith or you’re not saved. It means the devil is trying to get in. You have to run that devil out. Say, “No, no, no! And if you wake me up, dude, you’re gonna pay for it.” In those moments, I will pray for every person I know. I start to declare the goodness of God. I let the devil know he’s going to wish he never showed up at my house, amen.

“Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.” – Luke 10:19

You have dominion and power through Jesus Christ. If your faith will not allow you to do that, that’s fine with me. Still, I want to encourage you that when you do, it becomes a prophetic act that alerts the enemy that you know who you are in Christ and what authority you have. He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

Prophetically, when you open your mouth and declare the Word of God, you stomp the enemy in his teeth, keeping him below your feet just as God Almighty prophesied.

You are not here to let the enemy have his way with you. You have a voice, and those in the body of Christ must begin to use it. You need to prophetically declare His word over any and all situations. You are a victor in Christ but you have to war with your words to claim that victory. When it comes to the devil’s voice in your life today, shut Him up with your voice proclaiming the word of God.
