That is a Declaration of Truth I say over my life on a regular basis.
Truth statements have become one of the key spiritual disciplines which help me replace the lies of the enemy with the Truth of God’s Word. Every one of my declarations is rooted in Scripture. This one is almost word for word:
Psalm 149:143 As pressure and stress bear down on me, I find joy in your commands.
Truth statements like these are much more than self-help or positive affirmations. Truth statements are just that…TRUTH!
Scripture tells us that the enemy is the father of lies. He uses those lies to distract us, derail us, and destroy us. The only way lies are defeated is by replacing them with Truth.
Anyone else ever feel pressure and stress bearing down?
Do you ever fall for the lie that you can’t overcome it?
Do you believe that pressure and stress must lead to depression, anxiety, fear, worry, or gloom?
Then you need to start speaking this Truth!
Say it! Believe it! Live it!
As pressure and stress bear down on me I will find joy in God’s commands.
