Verily I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven (Matthew 18:18).

The word "bind" in the opening scripture also means "forbid" or "disallow". In other words, Jesus is saying "...Whatsoever thou shalt
forbid or disallow on earth shall be forbidden or disallowed in heaven..." That means you're absolutely responsible for the quality of life you live. Some folks don't like to hear things like this, because they love to hold God or even the devil responsible for whatever happens in their lives.

It reminds me of a certain man who heard a preacher teach on this scripture and he stormed out of the church angrily. When he was asked why he was angry at the preacher he replied, "That preacher's trying to blame us for all the bad things". He didn't want to be told he was responsible for his life. But I think that's the best news a man could hear!

If you're responsible for what happens in your life, it means you can choose to accept into your life only those things that are consistent with God's plans for you. Whatever you choose to allow into your life is what will reign, and whatever you choose to forbid or disallow will be forbidden or disallowed. You're absolutely responsible for your life!

You have a choice and the right to welcome health, prosperity and joy into your life and your home. Don't let life push you around one more day; refuse poverty, lack and failure. Forbid sickness, disease and infirmities from manifesting in your body and in your home! It's up to you to keep the devil where he belongs- under your feet. You have the authority!

Dear Father, thank you for the awesome privelege of being able to decide the quality of life that I want to live! I unleash the forces of prosperity, health and victory in my life, and disallow sickness, poverty and defeat in my home and in the lives of my loved ones, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
