Zechariah 2:10 (KJV): “Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the Lord.”

Nehemiah 8:1-10 (KJV): 1 And all the people gathered themselves together as one man into the street that was before the water gate; and they spake unto Ezra the scribe to bring the book of the law of Moses, which the Lord had commanded to Israel. 2 And Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month. 3 And he read therein before the street that was before the water gate from the morning until midday, before the men and the women, and those that could understand; and the ears of all the people were attentive unto the book of the law. 4 And Ezra the scribe stood upon a pulpit of wood, which they had made for the purpose; and beside him stood Mattithiah, and Shema, and Anaiah, and Urijah, and Hilkiah, and Maaseiah, on his right hand; and on his left hand, Pedaiah, and Mishael, and Malchiah, and Hashum, and Hashbadana, Zechariah, and Meshullam. 5 And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people; (for he was above all the people;) and when he opened it, all the people stood up: 6 And Ezra blessed the Lord, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with lifting up their hands: and they bowed their heads, and worshipped the Lord with their faces to the ground. 7 Also Jeshua, and Bani, and Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodijah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, and the Levites, caused the people to understand the law: and the people stood in their place. 8 So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading. 9 And Nehemiah, which is the Tirshatha, and Ezra the priest the scribe, and the Levites that taught the people, said unto all the people, This day is holy unto the Lord your God; mourn not, nor weep. For all the people wept, when they heard the words of the law. 10 Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.


Declarations for the Day:

  1. Today, I declare that the Lord is dwelling in the midst of us, and we will sing and rejoice in His presence.
  2. As we gather together to hear the Word of God, I declare that our hearts are open and attentive to His truth, and His Spirit speaks to us with clarity and understanding.
  3. I declare that the joy of the Lord is our strength, and His presence fills us with hope, peace, and courage for the day ahead.
  4. Just as Ezra and the Levites taught the people and gave them understanding of the law, I declare that God’s Word is made clear to us, and we walk in obedience and wisdom.
  5. Today, I declare that we will not mourn or weep, but we will rejoice in the goodness of the Lord and celebrate His faithfulness in our lives.
  6. I declare that this day is holy unto the Lord, and we will honor Him with our praise, our worship, and our obedience.
  7. As we partake of the blessings of this day, I declare that we will share with those in need, demonstrating the love and compassion of Christ to others.


Take heart, for the Lord is with you. Just as He dwelt in the midst of His people in ancient times, He is present with you today. Allow His Word to speak to your heart, bringing clarity, understanding, and joy. Though challenges may arise, remember that the joy of the Lord is your strength. Rejoice in His presence, for He is faithful to guide you, protect you, and fill you with His peace. Let His joy overflow in your life, and may you be a beacon of hope and encouragement to those around you. Trust in the Lord’s goodness, and know that He goes before you, making a way where there seems to be no way. Walk in faith, knowing that the joy of the Lord is your strength.
