Believe! Pray! Sing! Declare!

Let a song of faith rise up from within you and BE the uprising that our culture so desperately needs.

If there was ever a time to believe for a miracle … it is now!

If there was ever a time to pray without ceasing … it is now!

If there was ever a time to outsing the bluster of popular opinion … it is now!

If there was ever a time to stand in strong faith and to declare the promises of God … it is surely now!

Do you believe in miracles?

Do you believe that the same God who parted the Red Sea …Who closed the mouths of lions … Who protected the boys in the fiery furnace …Who turned water into wine … Who walked on water … Who raised Lazarus from the dead … and Who multiplied the loaves and fishes is still doing miracles today? 

I believe!

I believe that we serve a God of miracles and that He is still doing miracles today!

I believe that all authority belongs to Him and that He is well able to make a way where there seems to be no way!

I believe that He intervenes in the affairs of mankind with His goodness and with His power.

“How great are His signs!

And how mighty are His miracles!

His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,

And His dominion is from generation to generation!” – Daniel 4:3

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is though everything is a miracle!” – Albert Einstein

Do you believe in the power of prayer?

I believe that God hears us when we pray!

I believe that God bends down over the gates of heaven and listens with great attention when a child of His cries out in prayer.

I believe that prayer moves the hand and heart of God.

I believe that God responds to prayer.

“The Lord has heard my pleading.

The Lord receives my prayer.” – Psalm 6:9

Prayer does not fit us for the great work … prayer IS the great work!” – Oswald Chambers 

Do you believe in the power of a song?

W. C. Handy was a black musician and composer who was known as the “Father of the Blues”. In 1931, he commented on the songs the black church had historically sung that had seen them through great trials and tribulation.

These are the words of the noted musician, “I think that these spirituals did more for our emancipation than all the guns of the Civil War. If you’ve got a song, you’ve still got a chance. A song is an uprising.”

Let a song of faith rise up from within you and BE the uprising that our culture so desperately needs.

OUTSING the culture … OUTSING the division … OUTSING the lies … OUTSING the pain!

Keep singing! Don’t allow anything or anyone to stop your song in the night!

“But rejoice, all who take refuge in You!

Sing for joy forever!

And may You shelter them,

That those who love Your name may rejoice in You.” – Psalm 5:11

“Isn’t it a comfort to worship a God we cannot exaggerate?” – Francis Chan 

Are you declaring the promises of God?

What a powerful delight it is to attach my heart and my life to the never-changing authority of the Word of God!

We serve a promise-keeping God! He never makes a promise that He does not keep!

If God said it … I believe it … and that settles it!

When you are sad … declare that in His presence is fullness of joy!

It’s a promise!

When you are lonely … declare that He is with you always!

It’s a promise!

When you are afraid … declare that His perfect love casts out all fear!

It’s a promise!

When you are sick … declare that He heals all of your diseases!

 It’s a promise!

“For as many as the promises of God are, in Jesus, they are yes and Amen!” – II Corinthians 1:20

“God never made a promise that was too good to be true.” – D. L. Moody 

Believe! Pray! Sing! Declare! 

You’ve got it now! That’s the way to do life!

Believe! Pray! Sing! Declare!

That is your strategy for storm-tossed living!

Believe! Pray! Sing! Declare!

You, my friend, are a force to be reckoned with when you choose to …

Believe! Pray! Sing! Declare!
