For an affirmation to work, it needs POWER…
POWER comes from God through Christ…
“Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.” 1Corinthians 1:24
“By the word of truth, by the power of God” 2 Corinthians 6:7
And, the Bible is this truth, this wisdom, this POWER packaged up in WORD form for our benefit…
The SOLUTION to any and every problem you’re dealing with right now can be found in the Bible.
You can have victory over your problems by using Bible-based affirmations…
Find those verses that apply to your situation and circumstances…
…and turn them into an affirmation!
Let me give you two examples derived from Acts 3:16:
“And [Jesus] through faith in His name HATH made [me] [???]”
“The faith which is by [Jesus] hath given [me] this [???]”
And, just so it’s clear, the ??? part is the polar opposite of your problem…the ??? part is the “good”, the “ideal”, the “outcome” you want.
Go ahead…try plugging in the polar opposite of your problem into one of the above affirmations and see if you don’t FEEL a spark of POWER in just saying it.
This is good…
And, I want you to let it get even better…
I want you to learn to talk to yourself just like Jesus would talk to you!
In Luke 13:10-13, we find a woman who was bound with a crippling infirmity that she’d had for 18 years.
Do you know what Jesus said to her when his path crossed hers?
He said, “Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.”
And immediately, this woman was made whole and she gave glory to God.
Could you use the PATTERN of Christ’s words in talking to yourself to create the same effect of victory in your life?
“[Your Name], thou art [???]”
Brother or Sister in Christ, you CAN use the PATTERN of Christ’s words in your life and His words WILL work for YOU too!
Of course, it doesn’t matter what you say if you’re constantly IMAGINING unpleasant, unwanted, and undesirable situations and circumstances. So, put away those negative thoughts.
Actively reject and eject any and every thought of what you don’t want from your mind. Give zero energy (fertilizer) to the undesirable – it may in fact exist at this moment in time but that doesn’t mean you have to give energy to it.
Instead, as you say your affirmation, IMAGINE yourself actually having, doing, being the good that you desire…IMAGINE yourself actively engaged with, in operation with, performing with, and using the good you desire even as you say your affirmation. In this way, you put good energy (fertilizer) into what you do want.
Bottom line, when you holistically think, talk, and act according to the principles set forth in the Bible, you’ll find that your life is a series of movements “from glory to glory”. This doesn’t mean there won’t be times of hardship and suffering – there will be. But, even in these times, we know that a greater victory is in the making.
