Precious Jewel – Personal Declaration to Realizing Your Uniqueness & Understanding Your Greatness
By Eryka T. Johnson
This is a personal declaration that you can declare and expect positive results in realizing your uniqueness and understanding your greatness. It will change your life for the better. Once you realize your uniqueness and understand your greatness, you will do more, be more, and excel in every area of your life.
I thank You that I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Every part of my life You have always known since the very beginning. I accept responsibility for the choices that I have made and acknowledge that most have not been Your perfect will for my life. Being a loving, compassionate Father, You have allowed me to experience life only to end up where I began – in Your care.
So, today I repent of my sins, as well as, the un-repented sins of my ancestors that have passed down through the generations. I have decided to no longer associate the value of my worth with my sinful nature. Every bad fruit that has manifested as a result of my behavior, I break connection with now. I speak re-alignment in my life according to Your purposes. Reveal to me my divine assignment – the very reason I was created. I desire to be taught what life is truly about through Your eyes. Enlighten me to the hidden things of my heart such that I may be free. Ultimately, give me a revelation of who You really are in my life.
I choose to no longer be a hostage and a victim of my past. Those past pains, hurts, and circumstances do not define me as an individual nor as a precious jewel of the Most High. I forgive those that have hurt, persecuted, manipulated, and abandoned me. I give up the right to hold anything against them. As a result, I know I receive Your forgiveness, grace, and love. I ask that You teach me how to love without boundaries. I surrender and give up all control. I am yielded completely to Your direction.
I recognize the royalty within me. I AM A PRECIOUS JEWEL, HANDCRAFTED BY THE EXPERT JEWELER HIMSELF. I am unique in every way imaginable. Yet in my uniqueness, I know I cannot make it alone. Be Lord of my life and Ruler over my affairs.
In Jesus Name,
Psalm 139:13-16 (The Message)
Oh yes, You shaped me first inside, then out; You formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank You, High God—You’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, You know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, You watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before You, the days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day.
