A season of change
How desperate are we to experience true revival and the early- and late rains of change in a new season?
Can an entrepreneur starts a company and has no plans for it to prosper?
Jeremiah 29:11For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future
The plans and intentions of God are hidden in His heart and mind and are being revealed through His prophets to speak out at the appointed times. Through the ages, God used prophecy to bring about change and shifted spiritual climates.

Navigating your future with prophetic declarations

Prophetic declarations became an essential part of my early morning prayers as I started my prayers with them and I experienced the outcome of it in my life. I was going through a difficult time in my life, trying to cope with work, home, homeschooling, and church activities while my husband was working away from home. I cried out for help in prayer and the Lord woke me up at 3:30 that week. This is the time I got active with journaling again.
What are prophetic declarations?
