Affirmations are incredibly powerful! Why, because faith comes by hearing! In saying, hearing or writing a powerful affirmation you are feeding that information into your mind and spirit over and over again. Furthermore, in declaring those words out of your mouth, you are putting that word into the atmosphere. Bible-based affirmations are even more powerful because you have the kingdom of heaven backing up what you are saying. The Word of God is the only offensive weapon outlined in the Apostle’ Paul’s letter to the church at Ephesus (Ephesians 6:10-18). God’s Word is powerful and when we marry the power of His Words with our faith in action by declaring those very words over our lives, families, circumstances and communities, we ignite the power of God to be made manifest in our lives.
Practicing daily affirmations is a practice that many people embrace, both believers and non-believers alike. However, I believe that this is a kingdom principle backed up by Scripture. I believe that in declaring positive affirmations we are carrying out the biblical principle of “being transformed by the renewing of our minds”. The mind is a powerful thing and Scripture acknowledges that. Your beliefs are like lenses through which you view yourself and the world around you. It becomes your reality. What you feed will grow. So feed your mind and spirit positivity and positivity will manifest in your life.
Below is a list of some of my favorite affirmations that I use in my life on a regular basis. I chose to include a Scripture reference for each affirmation because for me, knowing that what I am speaking is backed by Heaven matters! Feel free to choose two or three affirmations from my list that resonate with you (or use them as inspiration to create your own). Next, you want to write them down in a place that is visible and a place that is easily accessible to you daily. Third, commit to speaking them aloud every morning when you wake up and every night before you go to bed. I suggest these times of day because it will help you start your day with a positive outlook and end your day with positive thoughts.
