We Consecrate Ourselves
With this Word, Lord, we consecrate ourselves to You. We receive and wash ourselves in the blood of Christ, and we cleanse ourselves from all sin and opposition to the Word and will of God. We take our position in Christ at the right hand of the Father, far above every rule and authority, every power and dominion and every name that is named, and we put everything in subjection under our feet. We take our position at Your side as Your bridal partner and helpmate to imitate Your life and activate Your will on the earth through the power of the Holy Spirit that dwells within us. Lord, as Your bridal partner we recognize and acknowledge the covenant we have with You, that in this covenant everything that is Yours has become ours and everything that is ours has become Yours. Our debt and lack has become Yours and Your fullness and completeness has become ours. We acknowledge this and appropriate what You have given us through Your full payment at the cross.
Lord, we thank You that through the cross You gave us life, canceled our debt and You disarmed our enemies. Your Word says in Colossians 2: 13-15 that "when we were yet dead in our sins and in the uncircumcision of our flesh, that You made us alive together with You having forgiven us our sins." So, now we are forgiven and made alive, free to live lives that are pleasing to God, free to start over with a new beginning and with a new covenant relationship with our Father. So, we thank You and praise You, Lord, for this new freedom, for we are no longer dead in our sins and in our trespasses, but we are free and alive in You!
Lord, You said in Your Word that You "canceled the certificate of our debt consisting of the decrees that were hostile against us, taking them out of the way and nailing them to the cross". Jesus, You paid it all! We thank You that You canceled our debt, washed it away, and forgave and erased every debt, every mistake and mismanagement of finances that might have brought us into any kind of debt situation. You took our debt and gave us freedom and kingdom blessing, giving us a fresh new start and giving us godly wisdom for our future financial management. And now, Lord, we receive it by faith and walk in obedience and submission to Your will and Your Word as we apply this wisdom to our lives.
Lord, You also said in Your Word that You "disarmed rulers and authorities and made a public display out of them, having triumphed over them" at the cross. We thank You for this mighty victory and we receive and appropriate this grace gift of the work of the cross that disarms these spirits, strongholds, mindsets, and attitudes that have tried to control our lives and keep us from the blessed life prepared for us in Christ. We thank You, Lord, that as we die daily, bringing our lives daily to the cross, You disarm these strongholds and turn things around for us, making us Your trophy of grace and victory over the enemy and over the spirit of this world.
We thank You, Lord, for setting us free, for making us alive together with You, for canceling our debt, and disarming the controlling spirits, attitudes and strongholds that have been destructive to our lives. We are Your trophy of grace and victory over the spirit of this world. And as Your trophy we honor You by walking by faith and not by sight. We call those things that are not as though they were and we thank and praise You for the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.
Before we see it and before it's manifested, we thank You and praise You, God for the financial blessing for You have blessed us that we may be a blessing. We thank You for this chosen and predestined avenue of blessing that has canceled and destroyed our debt individually and corporately. We declare that the lottery IS Yours, that it belongs to You, Lord, for all things have been created by You and for You for Your good pleasure, and we thank You that it is Your good pleasure to bless us through this vehicle. Because You are faithful to Your Word and because we have been faithful to bring our tithes and offerings into the storehouse, You have now manifested Your promise and have opened up the window of heaven and poured out a blessing upon us that there is not room enough to receive it and You have rebuked the devour for our sake.
We are joint heirs with Christ, and You have chosen this blessing through the lottery to be a part of our inheritance that's been given to us and predestined for us for a good work that You have prepared beforehand that we should walk in. You have shown us that part of this good work is to destroy debt and release finances into the Body and Bride of Christ, for it is Your desire that Your Bride be free from debt and glorifying You in her giving and generosity. You have shown us that this good work should be called "Operation: Free the Bride" and that it will be a divine move of God that will set in motion a ministry of giving and blessing as we bless one another out of debt. You have chosen this vehicle of the lottery to initiate and set it in motion, as it is the plunder and spoil from our victory over the world. "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ." (Rev. 11:15)
So today, Lord, as Your bridal partner and helpmate, You have called us to take our position at Your side and take ownership of the lottery, to retrieve and recover it from the hands of the spirit of this world, for You've shown us that it belongs to You, that it originated in Your mind first with the pure plan and purpose to be a blessing and an avenue of supply and provision for Your people. You have shown us that this purpose was never fulfilled because of the uncircumcised heart of man that was not fully consecrated, holy, sanctified and set apart for Your divine purposes, and therefore man lacked discernment, wisdom and strength, and the spirit of this world came in and stole this vehicle of supply and blessing and began to use it to exploit the poor and feed its own idolatry, materialistic and greedy nature.
But now, God, You have called us, Your Body and Bride, to join together and take ownership of this vehicle of Your provision, to retrieve and recover it from the hands of the spirit of this world, to sanctify it by the Word of God and prayer, and set it apart as holy, for it is part of Your end time strategy of the transference of wealth of the wicked to the righteous. It is the plunder and spoil of our victory over the spirit of this world through our surrender to the cross of Jesus Christ. "For may it never be that we would glory in anything but the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ by which the world has been crucified to us and us to the world." Therefore, Lord, let us bring this vehicle of the lottery to the cross. We crucify and disarm every worldly and impure operation that has been associated with it. We cut off every worldly and self-centered tentacle that has been attached to it, and redeem it back to You, Lord, into the kingdom of God, as a holy and a blessed thing, and as a vehicle of Your divine provision and supply for Your ordained purposes in the kingdom of God. And by the authority given us and by the power of the Holy Spirit, we release this channel of supply of this transference of wealth back into the hands of God's people, those people with kingdom hearts and kingdom vision, back into the hands of those that are givers and tithers and are good stewards with hearts yielded to You, God, and with ears tuned to Your voice.
This day we claim it back for the kingdom of God and declare it done and set in motion by the holy name of Jesus Christ. Amen and Amen
