This DECLARATION is a portion of one I pray each day that was written and was given to me by Dr. Ed Laymance.

Because of who Jesus Christ is & because He is my Lord & Savior, I’m a child of the King. I am chosen, accepted and included as a citizen of heaven & member of God’s family.   (John 1:12, 1 Peter 2:9, 1 Thessalonians 1:4, John 15:16, 1 John 5:1)

I am loved by God unconditionally without reservation. I belong to Him having been bought with the precious blood of Jesus. (Romans 5:6-8, 1 John 4:10, 1 John 1:7, 1 Peter 1:2)

I have eternal life and will be saved from all of God’s wrath to come – guaranteed! I am a Christian. I am not just different in what I do. My identity has changed. I am forgiven completely.   (John 3;16, 1 John 5:11-13, Romans 5:1-2, Romans 5:9, 2 Corinthians 5:17, Ephesians 1:13-14, Romans 8:1-2, Psalm 103:12)

If God is for me, it doesn’t matter who or what stands against me, because nothing can separate me from the love of Christ – not hurt, pain, loss, problem or brokenness; not persecution, trouble, difficulty, or danger; not abandonment, abuse, addictions, or appetites; not desire, food, sexuality, or relationships; not life or death, angels or demons; not my past, the present, or the future; no power, no person, nothing in all creation, not even Satan himself can separate me from God’s love. I am a child of the King and choose this day to live as one.     (Romans 8:31-39, Ephesians 3:17-19)
