Affirmations

In order to make progress, we need to make changes in the way we think and how we behave. One very effective tool is to use affirmations. This is easy to do and it doesn't take up much time.

You should start every morning with at least five affirmations. These affirmations are statements based on biblical truth. They are intended to promote a positive biblical perspective and facilitate behaviors consistent with biblical truth. The affirmations you choose should be based on your individual needs. Here are some examples.

  • "I will forgive from my heart and take back power from the Devil."
  • "I will forgive from my heart and put the past behind me."
  • "I will pray and seek wise counsel before making decisions."
  • "I will bring every problem to God—and listen."
  • "I will pray to God—and listen—when I'm feeling anxious."
  • "This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it (Psalm 118:24)."
  • "I am a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17)."
  • "I am a royal priest (1 Peter 2:9)."
  • "I am the salt of the earth (Matthew 5:13)."

  • "I live by faith, not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7)."
  • "God loves me (Ephesians 1:4-6)."
  • "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13 NKJV)."
