Jesus Christ has already won our battles on the cross and made us victorious. Faithful believers must therefore use Christian affirmations with Bible verses to claim their victories over all life challenges.
The Bible is the very Word of God that created the world and everything. Every single word recorded in the scriptures is God-breathed. Christians are therefore encouraged to feed on God’s word on daily basis. This could be done through meditation, Christian affirmations, singing of hymns and spiritual songs.
There is power in the tongue; speak health, happiness, victory, etc, into your life through the power of the Holy Spirit Who resides in you as a faithful believer.
The secular world understands how the mind responds to affirmations and produces the energy needed for positive transformation in the lives of people. They use motivational messages from renowned individuals and their own instincts. What’s the version of Christian affirmations? It’s what is powered by the wisdom of God through the scriptures.
Well, before I drop the Christian affirmations here, let’s grab the meaning.
Affirmations are known to be positive phrases said either aloud or within the head, to affirm your thoughts or beliefs in a way that would transform your life for the best.
I believe the major difference here is the source of the phrases. In this respect, we are going to use words from the Bible —powered by unwavering faith (faith that moves mountains) to affirm ourselves; claim our victories, and move forward in life through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Some might say there are powerful Bible verses that work faster and miraculously —and those could be found in the book of Psalms. That isn’t the fact. The real truth is every single word has been empowered by the Holy Spirit.
Powerful Biblical Words To Affirm Your Victory
Here are several Christian affirmations with their respective Bible verses for reference. I believe you would be inspired and blessed if you seriously use and rely on the words that come from the Bible.
