The Word is the Ultimate Pearl, Part 1

Every king or priest is on a journey toward fulfilling the vision God placed in his or her heart. Some are just getting started, and some have been forging forward for decades. No matter where you find yourself today, there is one absolute in your life that is vital in the lives of all kings and priests. It’s THE weapon that can be wielded to defeat any obstacle or enemy, no matter how big or small, and it must be in your hand at all times. It’s the Word of God.

I know many of you would say, “Lee, I’ve got that covered, so what’s the next pearl?” But let me ask you this: Are you sure you’ve got that covered? Because if you’re not speaking the Word over your life each and every day, your sword is hanging useless at your side. You’ve got to take that thing out of its sheath and unleash its mighty power by opening your mouth, and with faith, confessing God’s Word!

In the next few King’s Pearls, I’m going to share with you a powerful daily confession that I have prayed out loud for many years. Every king or priest must use his confession as a creative force to frame his world, to call those things that are not as though they were, and to wage war against the enemy. There is no substitute for a daily faith confession! Whether you need motivation to get out of a valley, or wisdom to know how to take your vision to the next level, or internal fortitude to withstand an attack from the enemy, these confessions will help move you forward into victory.

The King’s Strategy:

Commit to a time in the day that will be your confession time. Set an alarm, save it in your PDA, tattoo it to your wrist, do whatever it takes for you remember it and stick to it. Stay consistent, and watch the Word begin to work things out in your life that you could never do on your own!

The King’s Meditation:

“I dwell in the secret place of the Most High and I remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty whose power no foe can withstand. The Lord is my refuge and fortress. No evil shall befall me—no accident shall overtake me—nor any plagues or calamity come near my home. The Lord gives His angels charge over me, to accompany and defend and preserve me in all my ways of obedience and service. They are encamped around about me.”
(Psalm 91:1,2,10,11; Psalm 34:7)

“I have the mind of Christ and hold the thoughts, feelings and purposes of His heart. I am a believer and not a doubter. I hold fast to the confession of faith. I decide to walk by faith and practice faith. My faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Jesus is the Author and Developer of my faith.”
(Rom 10:17; 1 Cor 2:16; Heb 4:14, 11:6, 12:2)

“I let the Word dwell in me richly. He who began a good work in me will continue until the day of Christ. I am delivered from this present evil world. I am seated with Christ in heavenly places. I reside in the Kingdom of God’s dear Son. The law of the Spirit of life in Christ has made me free from the law of sin and death.”
(Rom 8:2; Gal 1:4; Eph 2:6; Phil 1:6; Col 1:13, 3:16)
