Day 15

I DECLARE that I have a sound mind filled with good thoughts, not thoughts of defeat. By faith, I am well able. I am anointed. I am equipped. I am empowered. My thoughts are guided by God's Word every day. No obstacle can defeat me, because my mind is programmed for victory. This is my declaration.

I love Joel Osteen. He puts thing in such a way that is easy to understand and so charmingly matter-of-fact that I smile and am easily able to accept it. These are things that I furrowed my brow over, trying to figure out, "How could that be?" Oh, Joel, you rock!

This is what I love most about today's reading:

" must be bold and say, 'God, if You say I'm blessed then I believe I'm blessed. My checkbook may not say I'm blessed. The economy doesn't say I'm blessed. The medical report doesn't say I'm blessed. But God, I know You have the ultimate authority. Since You say I'm blessed, my report is I am blessed.'"

Just like that.

I DECLARE that God has already crowned me with favor. I do have favor. God has already blessed me. And so it is.
