Just as King David, in I Samuel 30:6, there are times when we find ourselves in a place of distress and loneliness. It is in those times we must encourage ourselves in the Lord our God. One of the ways to do this is by decreeing his word over our lives. God's word is spirit. When we speak his word, his supernatural power is activated in our natural circumstances.
Biblical Decrees to Encourage yourself in the Lord:
