08 Oct Making a Decree
A decree is defined as an official order issued by a legal authority. Naturally speaking, a decision made by order of the court supersedes the desire or opinion of the defendant, whether it’s a fine, a denial of driving privileges, or even a jail sentence. Job 22:28 instructs us saying, “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.”
The Hebrew word for decree in this passage (gazar) is a command that not only establishes something but also divides and cuts something down at the same time. The powerful promise for making a decree is that the light of God will shine upon all our ways. In other words, the decree cuts away and destroys anything from the kingdom of darkness that has been purposed against you.
You are Royalty.
To make a decree with faith, we have to know that we know that we are royalty in the Kingdom of God as well as on the earth. “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:9). This verse describes us as chosen, royal, holy, and a special people unto God.
Remember God chose you to be joint heirs with Him, He decreed you would do the works his son Jesus did and even greater works !
