This past Sunday morning we called the kids to come forward, and sit on the steps facing the congregation. When I asked the kids to share what God has been doing in them, one of our little boys spoke into the microphone and said, "This is the greatest day of my life!"

This child's statement is still with me today. It reminded me of a card I often carry with me. The words apply to you, too. It is no accident that you are alive, in this time, in this place, "for such a time as this."

DECLARATIONS of HOPE (adapted from Steve Backlund)

  • Today is the day that God is going to show off His favor on me.
  • I speak to any worry, stress, or anxiety, and I say you cannot stay. Peace reigns in this temple.
  • There is nothing I am facing that Scripture cannot speak into.
  • I am not who my past experience says I am; I am who God says I am.
  • Today is the day of my breakthrough — I am free!
  • Because I trust in God, I am kept in perfect peace.
  • My hope, my finances, my strategies, and my partnerships with others are causing great positive change in lives and nations.
  • Tomorrow is going to be one of the best days of my life.
  • I will wake up with strong faith, strong love, and strong hope in my heart.
  • My past prayers will be working mightily today in every situation that concerns me.
  • As I attach faith to what I am hearing, He will do far more than I could ever hope or imagine.
