Affirmations

In order to make progress, we need to make changes in the way we think and the way 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 action statements as to what you will or will not do. The affirmations you choose should be based on what you're struggling with. Here's some examples.

  • "I will think about good things."
  • "I will forgive from my heart so I don't give power to the Devil."
  • "I will honor God with my thought life (Psalm 19:14)."
  • "I will pray and seek wise counsel before making decisions."
  • "I will pray and listen when a problem arises."
  • "I must forgive from my heart."
  • "This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it (Psalm 118:24)."
  • "I will enjoy the day."
  • "I choose to trust God and not rely on my own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-6)."
  • "I will apologize if I lose my temper."
  • "I will honor God with my life."
  • "I will love God today."
  • "I will love my neighbor."
  • "I will confess and forsake sin."
  • "I choose to be strong and courageous today (Joshua 1:9)."
  • "If my brother sins against me, I will rebuke him (Luke 17:3)."
  • "I will forgive others so my sins will be forgiven (Matthew 6:14)."
  • "I choose to be merciful so I can receive mercy (Matthew 5:7)."

Choose five affirmations every morning. You can reaffirm your affirmations, during the day, as needed. Affirmations should be positive statements. Otherwise, they are self-defeating.

Affirmations are an important tool for keeping your thoughts under control and your behavior in line with Scripture. Be sure to use them every day.
