Psalm 2:7 - "I will declare the decree: The Lord has said to Me, 'You are My Son,Today I have begotten You. NKJVI will DECLARE the DECREE.
Declare comes from the Hebrew word "caphar" and it means to score with a mark or to inscribe. The Declaration of Independence is a great example. Of the 161 times this word was used in the Old Testament it was used to signify writing except for only a few times where the declaration was made with their mouth (ie. Jer. 9:12). This word is most often translated "scribe."
Decree comes from the Hebrew word "choq" and it means an enactment or an appointment involving time, space, measure, law, boundary, mark or set time. The decree marks the limits. As we see in the "Declaration of Independence" it lays the foundation from which this nation was built upon. Foundations have limits or boundaries that are marked out.
Lesson 1 - Declarations can be spoken but most often involve writing.
Lesson 2 - The decree marks the boundary of the subject you are dealing with.
As you pray about the challenges you, your family, your business, your ministry, or your city face listen to the Lord. Hear what He has to say and then do Habakkuk 2:2-3. Then the Lord answered me and said: "Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry. NKJV
