Power of the Decree—Part 4  

Power of the Decree—Part 4


In the last blog post we shared a detailed explanation of what a decree is by definition. We also presented several scriptures to provide insight into the things we need to do before making a decree. So, since we have a basic understanding of what a decree is and how it’s issued. Let’s examine the scriptures further to see the remaining requirements for speaking forth decrees.

Job Chapter 22 verses 26 and 27:

26 For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God.

27 Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows (if you’ve promised God something, do it).

Verses 26 and 27 cover the essential connection between God and man. The scriptures say without me you can do nothing, this a reminder of this absolute truth. To utter a decree with the resources of God’s universe backing you, a thing called polarity must be intact. Polarity is a connection which enables access to a limitless reservoir of energy. Think of the two poles of a battery, with the universe being the positive pole and we are the negative pole. Polarity takes place when there is a proper alignment of these two poles. Look at your television remote control as an example. When that moving the battery (the source of energy) out of its proper place breaks the connection. The device will not work no matter how many times you push the buttons. After restoring polarity, the energy flows to accomplish the work of powering your remote or entire city.

Verse 26For then thou shalt have thy delight in the Almighty and shalt lift up thy face unto God. Verse 27Thou shall make thy prayer to him and he should hear thee and thou shall pay thy vows.

These two verses refer to the personal one-on-one relationship with God Almighty. Verse 26 is saying to lift your face up to God in worship and thanksgiving. There is no shame or condemnation, only a bold loving faith. Verse 27, you make your request know unto God through prayer. Understand speaking forth decrees or confessions or affirmations doesn’t remove the importance of prayer. Prayer is the glue in the relationship between creator and creation. The next part says, and thy shall pay thy vows. Be sure you are harboring no unforgiveness, and your word has kept by you to God and man. Keep in mind at all times there is an accuser ever prepared to stand against all you seek to do which benefits you and glorifies your God. Don’t given him access! This point should not be underestimated, it’s the little things which spoil big plans.  

Let’s do a brief summary these passages of scripture: For then thou shalt have—1) thy delight in the Almighty; 2) you shall lift your face unto God, this suggest there is no longer a barrier separating you from the creator; 3) you shall make your prayer to him and he will hear you; 4) and thou shalt pay thy vows (which means to keep your promises to God and man). To experience the benefit of the principle found in Job 22 verse 28 requires these steps are followed.
