In a world filled with negativity and difficulty, it is crucial for us to continually renew our minds with the powerful promises found in God’s Word. So easy to forget! As Christians, we are called to live in God’s image, embracing His love and power, while navigating the challenges of everyday life.
Fortunately, He has provided us with a various ways to overcome these obstacles and experience His peace of mind and perfect peace: Through the reading of his word; through prayer; through fellowship with other Christians; through joining his mission here on earth.

What are Biblical affirmations?
Biblical affirmations are phrases form from scripture which speak the word of God and his promises over us. It’s a way of declaring the authority of his word in our lives.
Biblical affirmations are powerful tools that allow us to align our thoughts and words with the truth of God’s Word. By declaring positive phrases grounded in His promises, we can actively participate in His plan for our lives, experiencing the transformative work of His Spirit. In this blog post, we will explore the the different ways we can create and use regular affirmations based on God’s promises. We call them who I am in Christ affirmations because they all reflect back our nature when viewed through our relationship to God.
God’s Word is a double-edged sword, capable of cutting through the noise and distractions of the world, and forging new neural pathways in our minds. Through the consistent practice of affirmations, we reinforce the truth of who we are in Christ and develop a strong foundation built upon His everlasting love and good plans for us. As we do so, we invite the Holy Spirit to transform us from within, making our minds a temple of the Holy Spirit, free from the spirit of fear and filled with the spirit of His Son.
One of the best parts about affirmations is that they can be personalised to meet our specific needs. Whether we are facing challenges, seeking guidance, or desiring spiritual breakthroughs, there is a type of affirmation that can address every aspect of our lives. From overcoming hard things to embracing God’s plan, the power of these words can lead us into the wonderful light that God has prepared for us.

Remember, you are no longer strangers but dearly loved children of the God of all comfort, and with His grace, you can achieve great things through the renewing of your mind.
Our ability to create affirmations is due solely to God’s promises to us. Without his promises we are unable to affirm our faith, or our ‘in-Christness’.
Here are some key examples in the Bible where God makes significant promises with accompanying affirmations:
- The Promise to Abraham: God promised Abraham that he would make him a great nation and bless him, and that through him all nations would be blessed. God also promised to give Abraham and his descendants the land of Canaan as an everlasting possession. (Genesis 12:1-3, Genesis 17:1-8)
Affirmation: God blessed Abraham. Through him I am blessed and this nation is blessed.
- The Promise of a Messiah: Throughout the Old Testament, God promised the coming of a Messiah, a Saviour who would deliver His people from sin and restore them. This promise was fulfilled in Jesus Christ, who came as the long-awaited Messiah. (Isaiah 7:14, Isaiah 9:6-7, Micah 5:2)
Affirmation: I am delivered from sin and restored back to the Father through my saviour Jesus Christ.
- The Promise of a New Covenant: God promised to establish a new covenant with His people, one that would be different from the old covenant given through Moses. This new covenant would be based on forgiveness of sins through faith in Jesus Christ and would bring about a deep relationship with God. (Jeremiah 31:31-34, Hebrews 8:8-13)
Affirmation: I am forgiven.
- The Promise of the Holy Spirit: Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit to His disciples after His departure. The Holy Spirit would empower them, guide them into all truth, and dwell within them as a Helper and Comforter. This promise was fulfilled on the Day of Pentecost. (John 14:15-17, Acts 2:1-4)
Affirmation: I am empowered by the Holy Spirit
- The Promise of Eternal Life: God promises eternal life to those who believe in Jesus Christ and trust in Him for salvation. This promise assures believers of the hope of spending eternity with God in His presence. (John 3:16, 1 John 5:11-13)
Affirmation: I am a child of God and an inheritor of eternal life.
- The Promise of the Second Coming: Jesus promised that He would return again in glory to judge the living and the dead, to establish His kingdom, and to bring about the renewal of all things. This promise gives hope to believers and serves as a reminder to be prepared for His return. (Matthew 24:30-31, Acts 1:11, Revelation 22:12)
Affirmation: I have hope in the Lord Jesus the he will come again.
These are just a few examples of key promises made by God in the Bible.
