I know lots of people who make declarations about their situation, and those same people often times get what they declare. A lot of times, those people are pessimists and they make declarations about how bad things are going to be.
NOTE WELL: I am not going to now make a declaration that we can create our future, like Heath Ledger did back in probably the best film of 1991, A Knight’s Tale: “He changed his stars after all.” Click here to see the actual tear jerker clip (yep, it brought tears to mine eyes!)
NOTE WELL: I am going to now make a declaration that God wants to strengthen us by His Word, and He wants to show us favor, and to make us increase!
What if, instead of standing in front of a mirror, talking to yourself like what’s-his-name in the film Cool Runnings, “I see pride; I see power; I see a bad news mother, who won’t take no crap off nobody” (edited), why don’t you stand in front of Heaven and make your declaration before the King.
INSTEAD OF STANDING IN FRONT OF A MIRROR,
TALKING TO YOURSELF,
WHY DON’T YOU STAND IN FRONT OF HEAVEN
AND MAKE YOUR DECLARATION BEFORE THE KING.
This is what Amanda Cook is inviting us to in this very excellent hymn of praise to God: YOU MAKE ME BRAVE. Over and over again, starting at 2:59, and continuing for minutes, we can declare over the enemy, over the land, over ourselves, unto God, that God is the One who makes us brave. YES!
God, You make me brave. You make me brave. You make me brave. You make me brave. You make me brave. You make me brave. You make me brave.
