The Power of Decrees

The Power of Decrees

Do you know the power of decrees? The Bible was not created just to read. It is more powerful than we can ever imagine if we actually choose to use it. As Christians, we have a huge advantage of having this book to deal with anything we have going on in life- but most of us were never taught how to actually use it to create tangible change.


The word was meant to be spoken. Out loud. Every day. Over any circumstance you have going on that needs to be changed.

Power in the Word

This is not the post to go into the science of how the Word does indeed change the physical world. In short, let’s just say that from a quantum physics perspective, the vibrations and energy that these words release into the atmosphere are powerful. After all, God did speak the world into form, and we are made in his image. Meaning, the words we speak actually have the power to create.

It is time to be intentional about speaking what we want to create and speaking the promises of God to bring the manifestation of them in our lives.

When we realize that the Word can physically change our reality, you view it entirely differently. It is not an obligation to read and memorize- it’s a thrill.

I want everything I believe to be so backed by scripture that I put few of my thoughts about the topic and more share what the word says, so let’s start there.

Power of Words

Words create life or death. Truly. This is why everything you say, speak over yourself and agree with has a major impact over your body and life. We do this all the time without thinking about it…..I am bad at……., I can’t…. I always…. I am worried… I don’t like….I don’t want this to happen….. what if….I have xyx diagnosis. . . I’m always so tired. . .

I don’t like the Word ‘spells’ because I’m not involved in anything occult, but I also think the occult has taken many things from Biblical principles and manipulated them in ways that were never intended. For example, they know the power of words. They for sure know the power of words spoken by God. You need to see speaking God’s Word as powerful as they see speaking a spell.

What Scripture says about what you speak:

  • A fool’s mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul. – Prov 18:7
  • The tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity so is the tongue among our members, that is defileth the whole body and setteth on fire the course of nature it is set on fire of hell – James 3: 6
  • Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles. Prov 21:23
  • I create the fruit of the lips. Isaiah 57:19
  • Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit (Proverbs 18:21).
  • Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, Sweet to the being, and healing to the bones. Prov 16:24

What is a Decree?

A decree is an official order issued by a legal authority.

A decree is taking God’s words and speaking them out. We have been given the authority from Jesus to make these decrees into our realms of influence and as we do it we begin to create the will of God in our life in the spiritual realm.

What the Word says about speaking scriptures out loud:

  • Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established onto thee and the light shall shine upon thy ways. – Job 22:28
  • “God confirms the word of His servant …” Isaiah 44:26
  • Isaiah 55:11 God said, “My word shall not return void but accomplish all it is sent forth to do.”
  • “Bless the Lord, you His angels, Who excel in strength, who do His word, Heeding the voice of His word” (Psalm 103:20).

What do Decrees Do?

1 . Decrees create and make changes in the Spiritual and Physical Realm 

Scripture is a powerful force that creates change in both the physical and spiritual world when spoken.

As you decree God’s word and will, the awesome power of the Holy Spirit is released to bring it to pass.

Jesus said the words that we speak are spirit and they are life. The substance of our words goes out into the spiritual realm and starts to creates life.

Remember: “My word shall not return void but accomplish all it is sent forth to do.” In order to have what the Bible says, we need to speak it out.

2. Decrees Release and Commission Angels

“Bless the Lord, you His angels, Who excel in strength, who do His word, Heeding the voice of His word” (Psalm 103:20).

Angels respond to the words of life spoken by us. When we speak God’s promises and hope into situations, we give these angelic beings something to work with to accomplish God’s will and promises in our life.

The moment you decree a thing, it will dispatch angels to go and bring fulfillment to that word of God because they obey the voice of HIS word, not your thoughts.

When you speak His word, Angels are being sent out on your behalf to carry it out. Whether you see a change or not, speaking the Word will ALWAYS do something.

One of the most powerful things you can do to transform your life is to speak and decree certain scriptures into whatever area of life you are struggling with most. Yeah, yeah, yeah….. I know you have heard that a million times but if you knew that it was actually releasing angels and creating changes in the spiritual and physical realm to change your life why WOULDN’T you do it?!

3. Decrees Change Your Beliefs 

What you believe about yourself, the world, and your circumstances create your reality.

You create what you believe. Your beliefs control how you perceive life, how you react to situations, what you think about yourself. Whatever your life is now, is based upon your beliefs driving your actions and reactions. We are all perceiving this life completely differently right now based on the filter of our unique beliefs. We need to reprogram our beliefs – so that our habits, personality, ways of thinking, and reactions to life are in line with the people we desire to be.

Daily decrees not only make changes in the spiritual realm, they also make changes in your mind, which then changes your brain, which then changes your body and life!

Decrees to Use Daily

My next post exlpains the exact decrees and prayers I use and say each day. For now, here are a few good ones to start with:

  • My spirit, soul, and body is blessed.
  • His hand of grace and blessings is with us and he keeps us from harm.
  • The favor of God on my life endures a lifetime and causes my mountains of influence and blessing to stand strong. I am are favored everywhere that I go and in all that I do. His favor opens doors of opportunities for us that no man can shut. Yeshua is a shield to us every day.
  • All of my needs are met according to HIS riches and glory by Jesus.
  • My prayers are powerful and effective (2 Corinthians 5:21; James 5:16b).
  • I am blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ (Ephesians 1:3).
  • In my home and business, I am the head and not the tail, above and not beneath.

      To Mary, one Bible verse you can decree is Isaiah 53:5
      “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”

      • Dorothy

        Psalm 30:2-3 Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me. (3) You, Lord brought me up from the realm of the dead; you spared me from going down to the pit.

  • Julie Alvarez

    This is very helpful but there’s no mention of the name of Jesus which is our authority.

    • Crissy

      Julie Alvarez, I agree with you….. Where’s the mention of our savior Jesus Christ??!!!! I’m wondering if this is leaning towards that new age religion trash??!! I don’t know Julie, I’m gonna have to pray about this one. No mention of Jesus Christ uhhh??

      • Philadelphie

        Then Mention His Name at the end of his Decree. Afterward, you are Decreeing His Word. I wonder if new Age Religion belief in Calling things as though they are. How much of it is true. Because I know that the Bible tells us that the devil is a liar, thief, manipulator and twister. I wonder if he has not stolen it from God, twisted and convinced God’s children that his wrong to operate in it? Are We missing something out of Decreeing and Declaring? I am not agreeing with New age.

    Thank you enjoy decrees ,just finding your site,been browsing through skin care very informative,thank you.

  • Mozelle

    Thank you so much for teaching on Decree. I had a prayer request that I needed to answer.
    I have been praying and writing the request for 8 days.
    The Holy Spirit gave me revelation of what spirits this person needed deliverance from. After the first day that I prayed.
    However I am part of our deliverance team. And have been gifted by God to teach and administer, as a team, deliverance with the help of The Holy Spirit.
    However this request came in as part of our prayer team and I have wrote several response in request that I received but never had peace each time to send it.
    I even had wrote some decree statements. Last night I just was led by the Holy Spirit to stop and get online with our weekly family prayer. The word I received was be patient. Remember the Bible says be anxious for nothing.
    I went to bed in tears. I prayed because my heart was heavy that this person has had to wait so long for my response.
    I got up this morning to respond and critique what I had wrote.
    I had some decree statements that I had wrote previously. But I was led by the Holy Spirit to define decree and put that before the statements I had written.
    Then up flashed your teaching. I read it, wrote it out, and printed out for further study fir myself as well.
    I thank you from the depth of my heart for blessing me with the information I need to complete this God given assignment. I hope it is okay that I use part of this in response to the prayer request I have.
    I pray that God will continue to bless you abundantly both naturally and spiritually. You are indeed a blessing to the Kingdom of Gods. This is such an example of no matter who we are; we need each other.
    Immediately I had peace! HALLELUJAH!
    To God be all the glory!!!

  • Robbie

    Hey there thanks for sharing this, I have been in a move of decreeing and declaring in my own life right now.

    Didn’t know if you saw this but there is a typo in the first sentence under the “related articles”

    “Powerful Prayers to Pray Aach Day”

    And the verse shared about the two edged sword is actually Hebrews 4:12.

    Powerful words shared here though and good, just finishing up a book by Cindy Trimm called “Commanding Your Morning” Couldn’t help to see the name Yahshua in one of the verses as well. Blessed to see that. Hope many come to know His true name very soon.

    Blessing to you…

  • Maria

  • Bayo

    Alll these as above are already promised in our every day lives. There are so many Bible passages to support this. Only Christians who are not matured engage themselves in these trivialities already given to you in spirit from the day you believe. Matthew 6;33. This phrase actually applies to kingdom issues such as winning souls, etc.
