Today We Bless Ourselves
I am alive by Jehovah’s decree.
I will stay alive and be active and productive.
My life will be full of good works so that when Jehovah decrees my time is up I will not linger nor languish, but have treasures to lay at the Master’s feet.
It will be a life well lived!
I bless myself in Jesus’ Name!”
INCREASE into the atmosphere. Miracles increase… increase unlike anything we have ever seen or experienced before!

Whatever it says is a revelation of God’s mind. It reveals His feelings and His unlimited ability.
