Several weeks back, I was directed by our Heavenly Father share something very bold with you.
“Tell my children that just saying Happy New Year or singing Auld Lang Syne at midnight on New Year’s Eve will not make 2023 a better year but I can make it so.”
Then Lord told me. . .He wants you to develop a clear vision for success, prosperity and healing. Next, He gave me very specific instructions on what He wants us to speak as we greet the new year.
Change is not a function of a calendar, but it is a personal decision for us to change what we’re thinking, saying and doing.
The Lord gave me five instructions for each of us and then He led me in writing seven confessions for each of the first seven days in the New Year. Here are the instructions.
# 1 Start the year differently than you ever have before.
Don’t do what you’ve always done.
If you’ve always made New Year’s resolutions on losing weight, exercising more, getting your personal finances in order. . .only to have your good intentions fade with the passing of each new day, get ready for something new. . .that will not fade but grow stronger every day.
Revelation 21:5 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:
“And He Who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new. Also He said, Record this, for these sayings are faithful (accurate, incorruptible, and trustworthy) and true (genuine).”
# 2 Set a specific time to boldly proclaim your confessions each day.
Set an alarm. . .write it on your calendar. . .put a reminder on your refrigerator but COMMIT to make you seven daily confessions at a specific time.
It’s important that you come into line with the Word of God every day.
Do not let the tyranny of the urgent or anything else stand in your way.
Psalm 90:12 Classic Amplified Bible says:
“So teach us to number our days, that we may get us a heart of wisdom.”
Make every effort to get Ecclesiastes 3:1 (MSG) down in your spirit.
“There’s a Right Time for Everything.
“There’s an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth.”
Ask God would be the best time for you to speak your confessions each day.
Write down the first time that came to your mind. __________________________
Next, ask God to help you honor the time that He brought to your mind.
3. Make your daily confession with a holy boldness that will shake up the hordes of hell.
Acts 14:3 in the New Living Translation says:
“But the apostles stayed there a long time, preaching boldly about the grace of the Lord. And the Lord proved their message was true by giving them power to do miraculous signs and wonders.”
When you speak the Word boldly and confidently. . .three things immediately manifest in your life.
That’s why, my fine wife, Bev and I are speaking Acts 4:29 (MSG) over you. . .
“. . . give your servants fearless confidence in preaching your Message, as you stretch out your hand to us in healings and miracles and wonders done in the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
Making these daily confessions for the first seven days of 2023 will give you “fearless confidence” and “healings and miracles and wonders” are manifested in and through your life.
4. Forget the past. . .focus on the future.
As I was praying about what the Lord would have me say in this letter. . .He led me to was 2 Corinthians 5:17.
He directed me to tell His children that this verse applies to more than being born-again. He wants you to know it’s a formula for living the God-kind of life 2023.
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
I love how that verse says that “old things are passed away.” The Contemporary English version says, “The past is forgotten.” The New Living Translation says, “The old life is gone, a new life has begun.”
What will make this new life begin? It’s not the passage of time. . .but a conscious decision on our parts to put God first in every decision we make. . .to give Him glory and honor for the mighty things He has done and is doing in our lives.
And, yes, to speak into existence the God-given confessions He wants me to send to you.
5. Two steps to make 2023 your best year ever.
First, if you go on our website and click the Seven Confessions button and these powerful, Holy Spirit-directed confessions will be sent to you directly.
Second, ask God what seed He would have you sow to make 2023 your best year ever. Don’t send what you’d normally give. . .follow God’s instructions.
As the old saying goes, if you want something you’ve never had. . .you must do something you’ve never done.
Finally, Bev and I spent some time on New Year’s Day praying these seven confessions over you and those you love.
Now we’re going to share with you the seven confessions I was directed to send you.
Your Seven Confessions for 2023
“Heavenly Father, l praise you that in this New Year, 2023. . .I’m headed where Your Word declares I can go . . . toward success, prosperity and the good life. I praise you that as the days of this year unfold, I will be writing a daily story of success and triumph in overcoming every obstacle . . . a man or the enemy places in my path. I thank you that when any problem or temporary setback comes my way, you will immediately give me specific solutions in my spirit so any attempted defeats can be turned into victories. I rejoice as I commit my actions to you . . . because my plans will succeed according to Proverbs 16:3. I praise you in advance that I will have clear vision through the direction and the unction of the Holy Spirit. In the mighty Name of Jesus. Amen”
“Heavenly Father, I thank you that whatever I ask in prayer and believe that I receive, it will be granted to me according to Mark 11:23-24. I rejoice that you empower me to overcome every attack of the enemy. I will fear no evil. You infuse me with inner strength allowing me to be self-sufficient in your sufficiency as found in the words of Philippians 4:13 AMPC.
“Father, Your Word says that if I believe on you . . . and I do, that I shall do the greater works. I rejoice all things are possible to those who believe and I believe according to John 14:12.
“Lord, I’m ready to shout because nothing is impossible to me and no word from you is impossible of fulfillment” according to the words in Luke 1:37.
“And, I call all this done in the strong name of Jesus. Amen.”
Heavenly Father, in the strong Name of Jesus, I rejoice that in 2023:
Debt is disappearing.
Lack is leaving
Poverty is fleeing
Faith is increasing
Money is multiplying
Wealth is accumulating
Generosity is growing
“I thank you, Lord, that I have more than enough to meet all my needs. I thank you that today I will be receiving unexpected checks, gifts and money.
“I thank you for stirring creative ideas within me. I thank you for opening new avenues of revenue in my life. I thank you I walk in the wisdom and favor of my Heavenly Father.
“I thank you that this day you will provide divine appointments and supernatural connections for me. I thank you in advance, Heavenly Father, for all these things and I give you the glory and honor as I await with anticipation the manifestation of your power, promotion and protection this day. In the strong Name of Jesus.”
“Heavenly Father, this year the enemy’s sinister efforts to steal my harvests, rob me of my dreams and devour my financial success and destiny are in my rear-view mirror. In the strong name of Jesus, I bind him and every one of his strategies according to Matthew 18:18 which declares my right … my inheritance as a born-again child of God. I command Satan to release my harvests. I’m serving him notice that according to Proverbs 6:31 to release my sevenfold return on all he’s ever stolen or is even now trying to steal from me. Release my harvests now. . .in the powerful Name and authority of Jesus. Amen.”
“Father, in the name of Jesus, I command this Holy Spirit led-seed to go where I tell it to go. . .to do what I tell it to do. . .I speak that it will not return void according to Isaiah 55:10-11 and Galatians 6:7-9. In the strong Name of Jesus, by the authority of the Word in Matthew 16:19 which says that whatever is bound on earth is bound in heaven, I bind any and every hindering spirit that would seek crop failure for the precious seed I’m sowing. The Word says in John 16:23 that whatever I ask in Your Name . . . you will give it to me. Father, just as you planned for the farmer to expect a harvest from seed sown into the ground, I’m claiming my mega harvest over the seed I’ve sown. I’m standing in expectation for an immediate bumper crop harvest. In the Name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
“Heavenly Father, I’m calling out, exposing and cursing these twelve sin tactics of the enemy. In the strong name of Jesus, I bind sin, fear, debt, sickness, lack, greed, addictions, anger, hurt, depression, sexual sin and hopelessness. By the authority of the Word and through the blood of Jesus I’m binding these Dirty Dozen sins out of my life and the environment in which I live and must operate.
Lord, I rejoice because your desire for me is freedom! For whom the Son sets free… is FREE INDEED. I rejoice because you are with me. I rejoice you will never leave me nor forsake me. I rejoice I will not fear anyone or anything . . . because you are on my side. I call this done and done in the mighty Name of Jesus. Amen.” Romans 8:31-32; Mark 10:45; Deuteronomy 31:6; Hebrews 13:5
Day 7 and every day that follows.
"Heavenly Father, I thank you [date] will be the greatest [day of the week] of my life . . . a day filled with possibilities beyond my imagination and expectation. A day filled with previously unknown opportunities, previously unused potential, revelatory insight and divine connections. My desire is for You to be glorified in everything I do on [day, date]. In the mighty Name of Jesus. Amen."
Your future will be as bright as YOU decide to make it.
