Start The New Year at Lakewood

I am so excited about beginning a New Year. I believe God is getting ready to exceed our expectations and release fresh favor, unprecedented blessings and new beginnings on each of us in 2018.
During every service, I make declarations over our lives.
"You are favored. You are blessed, prosperous, redeemed, forgiven, talented, creative, disciplined, focused, confident, secure, prepared, qualified, motivated, valuable, free, equipped and empowered, anointed, accepted and approved, not average, not mediocre, but children of the Most High God, victors never victims."
As we start 2018, I believe we need to make these declarations over our life every day. How we start the day, sets the tone for the rest of it. I believe that is true with how we start the year as well. If we start defeated, feeling less than, then we will set the tone for a mediocre year. But if we start the year speaking life, blessings, and the goodness of God over our lives, the tone will be set for a victorious, blessed year.
To help each of us begin the year strong, I want to give each family a copy of my book, I Declare, this weekend* This book will encourage us to speak God's promises over our life daily, one for each day of the month.
I challenge you to start the New Year planted in the house of the Lord. Bring a friend. All they need is an invitation.
I can't wait to see you this weekend.
Excited for 2018,
