Hundreds of years later, Jesus was in the synagogue in Nazareth. He unrolled a scroll to the same declaration in the writings of Isaiah and read it to the people. “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me to declare … the year of God’s favour”. Jesus knew the power of declaring. He knew you have to hear victory spoken over you, to hear abundance, healing, and freedom for it to come to pass.
You may have heard God’s favour in the past, but life happens. Maybe 2021 brought disappointments and dreams that didn’t work out, and it’s taken your passion. Thoughts of doubt have come, such as “It’s never going to happen. I’ll never recover. I’ve seen my best days”. If the negative is drowning out what God has spoken over you, you need fresh favour spoken over your life. It would help if you had a fresh anointing. That’s why I’m going to declare a blessing upon you as Isaiah did, as Jesus did:
I proclaim this will be a year of God’s favour for you and your family, with healthy relationships and good friends. I say new doors are going to open, with promotion, success, with creativity. I advise you are blessed with good health, vitality and energy. I say freedom for every bad habit, recovering for everything that was stolen. I swear that from this day forward, you will experience a new sense of freedom, new happiness, a new fulfilment. I say you are blessed.
If you let these words take root, if you receive them into your spirit, they have the power to provoke something inside, to wake up dreams, to stir up gifts, to unleash the favour, the blessings, the potential that God put in you. Now take the limits off God, and take the limits off yourself. He’s equipped, empowered, and anointed you. With God, all things are possible! Share this with someone you love, and be blessed!
