PRAYER POINT: Father, please give me wisdom to know what, when and how to speak.

BIBLE PASSAGE: Exodus 8:1-14; 1 Kings 18:41-45

Exodus 8:1-14;
1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

2 And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy borders with frogs:

3 And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into thine house, and into thy bedchamber, and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thine ovens, and into thy kneadingtroughs:

4 And the frogs shall come up both on thee, and upon thy people, and upon all thy servants.

5 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth thine hand with thy rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt.

6 And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt.

7 And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt.

8 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Intreat the LORD, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my people; and I will let the people go, that they may do sacrifice unto the LORD.

9 And Moses said unto Pharaoh, Glory over me: when shall I intreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river only?

10 And he said, To morrow. And he said, Be it according to thy word: that thou mayest know that there is none like unto the LORD our God.

11 And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy houses, and from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the river only.

12 And Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh: and Moses cried unto the LORD because of the frogs which he had brought against Pharaoh.

13 And the LORD did according to the word of Moses; and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of the fields.

14 And they gathered them together upon heaps: and the land stank.

1 Kings 18:41-45;
41 And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain.

42 So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he cast himself down upon the earth, and put his face between his knees,

43 And said to his servant, Go up now, look toward the sea. And he went up, and looked, and said, There is nothing. And he said, Go again seven times.

44 And it came to pass at the seventh time, that he said, Behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man’s hand. And he said, Go up, say unto Ahab, Prepare thy chariot, and get thee down, that the rain stop thee not.

45 And it came to pass in the mean while, that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode, and went to Jezreel.

1 Kings 18:1;
1 And it came to pass after many days, that the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, shew thyself unto Ahab; and I will send rain upon the earth.


A decree is an official order that has the force of law. It is an authoritative order or decision to which people have to comply. Job 22:28 says: “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways”. The person making the decree must be in a position of power and authority to do so. The word “decree” in Hebrew language is “gazar”, which means “to cut down or to cut off, to destroy, to divide, to exclude or decide!

MEMORY VERSE: “That confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; that saith to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built, and I will raise up the decayed places thereof:” – Isaiah 44:26



  1. You must be rooted in the Word of God, so that you understand your divine privilege to have your decree upheld – Colossians 2:7; 2 Timothy 2:15
  2. When you hear, receive and obey the Word of God, you are given the power to decree the Word – Deuteronomy 28:1; Jeremiah 1:9-12
  3. Always ask the Holy Ghost for assistance and guidance as to what you need to decree on – Romans 8:26-27
  4. Believe and expect to see the manifestation – Mark 9:23
  5. Decree according to the will of God.
  6. Walk in total obedience to the Word of God – 2 Corinthians 10:6


1 Pray: Before meeting anybody for the purpose of counselling, we must not forget to pray. We must seek for what to tell them from God – Daniel 2:27-28

2 Listen well: We can never give good, Godly and timely counsel, if we don´t listen well – James 1:19

3 Search the Scriptures: We must never give counsel from any source other than the bible. The Word of God has instructions for every single thing under the sun – Hebrews 4:12-13


1 Backup your decree with prayer. 1 Kings 18:1; 41-45 prophet Elijah still prayed despite hearing God clearly, that he should tell Ahab that He was about to send rain to the earth – John 14:13

2 Strong faith is required over your counsel. Mark 11:23

i. And Moses said unto him, as soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the LORD; and the thunder shall cease neither shall there be any more hail, that thou mayest know how that the earth is of the LORD’S. Exodus 9:29. And in verse 33, it was done according to his counsel.

ii. Elisha sent a messenger to Naaman to go and dip himself in River Jordan seven times for his healing. 2 Kings 5:10 and in verse 14, after complying, he was healed.

SUMMARY: God will always back up His Word with manifestation.


It is written in Job 22:28 “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways”. As a child of God you are already empowered to issue decrees –John 1:12. Grow your faith not to make you have any doubt on your counsels and decrees – Mark 11:23. Develop a powerful prayer life to actualize your decrees and counsels like Elijah – 1 Kings 18:1; 41-45.

ASSIGNMENT: Mention the conditions for decrees and counsel need for optimum manifestation.


  1. Thank God for all the prayers He has answered in the past.
  2. God of Elijah, manifest Your power in my life in Jesus name.
  3. Ask God for the grace to give counsel that will win souls to His kingdom.
  4. Pray for rapid growth of RCCG physically, spiritually and numerically.
  5. Pray for Daddy G.O. and his family.
  6. Personal prayer request.


MONDAY: Jeremiah 1:12 – I will hasten My word to perform it.
TUESDAY: Job 22:28 – It shall come to pass.
WEDNESDAY: Proverbs 19:20-21 – Wise counsel.
THURSDAY: 2 Corinthians 10:6 – Father, please make my obedience complete, so that everything shall obey me too.
