Jan 17, 2024 | Daily Decrees, Decrees For Your Family & Breakthroughs

TODAY we declare that all who live in our home serve the Lord. We prophesy that each member of this household honors God in word, action, and deed. We are a family who gives the Lord the place
of supreme rule, and we choose to uphold His Word and commandments. His Name shall always be reverenced under our roof. We speak words of praise and esteem about the Lord. We speak that in this home the Lord is high and lifted up, and His presence fills every room! We say that no antichrist spirit is able to operate in this house. We break the power of any opposing spirit or influence, and we close the door to all things that dishonor our God. We decree that the banner written upon the doorposts of this house is, “As for me and my house, we serve the Lord!”

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord ( Joshua 24:15).

One of the most important things a family can do is decide that their home will be a place where God is honored. This means that anything that would dishonor the Lord is not allowed access to the premises; all that is said and done carries the Lord’s honor upon it. Moses taught the children of Israel that they were to teach their children to praise and honor God in everything they did. This was not to be a one-time decision. It was something they acknowledged in an ongoing way. There is so much in our culture that dishonors God today and, over time, it can be easy to unintentionally allow things to creep into our homes that are in opposition to the Lord. Regularly making the verbal declaration—that your house will be one that gives God the preeminence in everything—will ensure your home remains free of the things that would bring dishonor to Him!
