Many athletes who move on to play college/university sports experience the reality of the DECIDE AND DECLARE process. Signing with a school before experiencing it is a serious and sometimes risky move. Even though making that decision holds excitement, declaring their decision to the world can lead to anxious moments.
The DECIDE AND DECLARE process was evident in the creation of our world. First, God DECIDED to create our earth and its inhabitants and did it…
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1
He made blue and starry skies, ominous thunderheads and puffy- white clouds, soft sunrises and magnificent sunsets, blazing lightening and refreshing raindrops. In turn, these creations declare His power and might as they adorn the sky and replenish the earth.
“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands”. Psalm 19:1
God also DECIDED to create humans beings making them in His own image…
So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27 NLT
He then DECLARED a blessing on them to multiply, subdue and rule the earth.
Being made in His image, we are the recipients of God's declared blessing. Our response is our decision. If we choose to embrace His image within us, like the heavens we will DECLARE who He is to our world confidently proclaiming the work of His Spirit in us.
“We believe with our hearts, and so we are made right with God. And we declare with our mouths that we believe, and so we are saved.” Romans 10:10 NCV
PRAYER: Today, Lord, I DECIDE to make Your plan mine. May the life I lead and words I speak, DECLARE how marvelous, how excellent, and how wonderful You are! In your Son’s name, Amen.
DECIDE TO LET YOUR LIFE DECLARE THE NAME OF JESUS!
