I DO DECLARE

Nanny Abney “I do declaring” with biscuit hands. I have no idea why she is in my paint shirt! (She would spank my bottom if she knew I was sharing this picture with the world.)

One generation shall praise Your works to another and shall declare Your mighty and remarkable acts.  Psalms 145:4AMP

 When I read this verse, I immediately thought of my two truly Southern grandmothers, Nanny Lowe and Nanny Abney and my great grandmother, Nanny Hewell.  These three women greatly influenced my life.  All showed me the unconditional love of God and declared His mighty works.  The focus verse reminded me of phrase they all used: “I do declare…

They used this phrase to express amazement, amusement, surprise, happiness and exclamatory truth.  I believe we should do the same.  According to Psalms 145:4, their generations declared God’s mighty works to our generation.  Our assignment is to pass on the “I do declare’s…” to the next generation.  If God said it, I believe.  I take His promises and declare them as truths.

Here are a few of my favorite “I do declare’s…”:

  • I do declare I am a child of the Most High God.
  • I do declare I am seated in heavenly places.
  • I do declare I have the mind of Christ.
  • I do declare I have faith in God.
  • I do declare I have the faith of God.
  • I do declare I am loved.
  • I do declare I am saved by grace.
  • I do declare that Jesus is Lord.
  • I do declare that I am healed, whole, and complete in Him.
  • I do declare that I am patient and kind.
  • I do declare that I am strong.
  • I do declare that I am brave.
  • I do declare that I am courageous.
  • I do declare that I can do all things through Christ.
  • I do declare that I can do nothing without him.
  • I do declare that I am resolute.
  • I do declare that I am an overcomer.
  • I do declare that I do not have a spirit of fear.
  • I do declare that I have a spirit of power, love & sound mind.
  • I do declare that God gives me the victory in Christ Jesus.
  • I do declare that God shall meet my needs according to His riches in glory.
  • I do declare that God is Creator of heaven and earth.
  • I do declare that He is Worthy of all praise and glory.
  • I do declare that He is my Rock and my Refuge.
  • I do declare that Jesus was born of virgin.
  • I do declare that Jesus died on a cross.
  • I do declare that Jesus rose from the dead.
  • I do declare that Jesus is coming back for His bride.

What do you declare? 

I enCOURAGE you to come up with your own list of “I DO DECLARES” for yourself and to pass on to the next generation! Or me…😊
