declare my word

we have had rough day today after spending the better part of the day in the hospital. everything has checked out and we are so relieved, thrilled, blessed... doesn't even begin to describe it! both the baby & i are in good health and recovering smoothly at home. still some concerns to get ironed out, but we are encouraged by faith.
for whatever reason, i have found it difficult to believe that God would be so good as to give me a fourth totally healthy, happy, beautiful baby after already blessing me with so much. i feel so greedy expecting His goodness & blessings. so i came to this seemingly simple revelation. God is good all the time. His goodness doesn't have a limit or boundaries or consequences. it is boundless, abundant & excessive. i could never do anything to earn His loving kindness nor could i ever thank Him enough.
another revelation that became flesh to me today was the importance of declaring God's word. the doctors gave some pretty terrible forecasts today and then the word of the Lord came to us... who's report are you going to trust? it's not that doctor's are bad people, they just tell you what they see. there is nothing wrong with that... it just isn't in line with God's supernatural plan, that's all. i had printed out these scriptures a while ago to pray over the kids before they went to sleep. but today i am going to declare them over this beautiful baby as the promises of God that they are and i will continue to pray them over this baby once i am cuddling it safely in my arms.

psalm 91:9-16

Our children have made the Most High their dwelling place. No harm will befall them; no disaster will come near their tents. For He will give His angles charge over them to guard them in all their ways. They will carry them so that our children do not dash their foot against a stone. They will tread upon the lion and the cobra; they will trample them underfoot. Because our children love You, You will deliver them, You will set them on high. They will call upon You and You will answer them, You will be with them in trouble, You will deliver them and honor them and with long life You will satisfy them and show them Your salvation.

psalm 103:2-5

Thank you Lord that our children won’t forget His benefits. You forgive all their sins and heal all their diseases. You redeem their lives form the pit, and crown them with love and compassion. You satisfy their souls with good things so that their youth is renewed like the eagles.

isaiah 24:13.14 and 17

All our children shall be taught by the Lord and great will be their peace, their health, safety, protection and prosperity. In righteousness they will be established. Tyranny will be far from them; they will have nothing to fear. Terror will be far removed; it will not come near them. No weapon

formed against them will prosper.

and some extra additions to this list for today...

This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him. 1 John 5:14-15

Luke 17 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.

God is so abundantly, excessively, limitlessly & powerfully good! so i'm going to stick that in my pipe and smoke it! thank-you Lord!
