Affirmations Regarding: Physical and Emotional Abuse


PHYSICAL ABUSE
John 10:10 — The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly
 
EMOTIONAL ABUSE
Isaiah 35:10 — And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
 
Father my life is hid in Christ, so I am a new creature. The old things have passed away and all things are new in my life. The truth of your word has set me free because I have set my heart to learn, know, believe, confess and receive your truth. Those who don't know that I am your child, do not know you. Because I belong to you, when you come again, I will be like you and see you as you are. You have seen my infirmity in its days, months and even years. It caused me to be bowed, confined, unfocused and unable to lift myself up. But you saw me and spoke to my heart. Now I am loosed from my weakness and captivity. The root, seed and vessel of the enemy that had me bound has been removed. Those who were my enemy, I forgive and will love them. Those who cursed me, I will bless. Those who despitefully used and persecuted me, I will pray that they be saved and redeemed by your hand.
 
You have begun a good work in me and I believe, confess in confidence that you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. I forget those things which are behind and press for the things you have purposed, planned and set before me. My old life is buried by baptism into the death of Christ. I have been raised up with Him by your glory Father and I will walk in newness of life. The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. I make allowance for other's faults, and forgive anyone who offended, wounded or abused me. Lord you forgave me, so I forgive others. I am clothed with love, which binds me with others in perfect harmony.
 
Lord you bore the griefs of my spirit, and carried my sorrows. I have been forsaken and refused. But you are my deliverer. You brought me your good news and healed my broken heart. I am liberated from every captivity, pit, prison and affliction of the mind, soul and spirit. Your comfort replaced my mourning. I received beauty for ashes and you anointed me with unspeakable joy. I am clothed with a garment of praise instead of the spirit of heaviness. You have planted me firmly in your love, grace and mercy and I am a tree of righteousness. The yoke and burden has been lifted from my shoulder and the rod of oppression is broken. You have delivered me out of the hand of the enemy, out of all who have oppressed me and drove them back to the abyss. I am not fearful of those who have hurt, wounded or oppressed me. Everything that has been covered shall be revealed and everything hid will be known.
 
I have no fear of those who try to kill the body. But rather my fear is only of You Lord, who is the only one who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Lord you are a refuge for the oppressed and in times of trouble. You have led me to safety so I no longer fear and the sea has overwhelmed my enemies. I keep your law and commandments because you have delivered me from the oppression of man. But even if I have suffered for doing what is right, You will reward me for it. So I do not worry nor am I afraid of threats or bitter words. Instead, I worship Christ as Lord of my life. And if someone asks about my hope, I am always ready to explain it.
 
Lord you have wiped all tears from my eyes. There is no more death to my spirit, no sorrow or crying in my soul. I have no more pain in my mind, soul, body and spirit because the former things are passed away. In my poverty and neediness I have praised your name. Your peace rules in my heart. As a member of one body, the church, I am called to live in peace. Always thankful, the message about Christ in all its richness, fills my life. By your spirit I am able to teach and counsel others with all the wisdom you give me. I sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs to you Lord with a thankful heart. Whatever I do or say, I do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to you my God and Father. Lord you have set me free and I am free indeed.

Affirmations for: Resisting Satan’s Lies


RESISTING SATAN'S LIES
1Corinthians 6:20 — For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
 
Father, I set my affection on the things above and I resist the lies of satan that would keep me bound mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually captivated to the cares of this earth. Although I walk in the flesh I do not warfare in the flesh. My weapons are not carnal but mighty through the power of God, that is able to pull down every stronghold. Thank you for your Holy Spirit that enables me to cast down every imagination or high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge that I have read, heard and learned of you Lord. My thoughts are held captive only to the obedience of Jesus Christ. I have the mind of Christ which enables me to gird up the loins of my mind. I am sober and have obtained grace through the revelation of Jesus Christ so I can bear all things, believe all things, hope all things and endure all things. Your love rules in my heart therefore my actions are not unseemly. I am not lifted up in pride nor easily provoked to do evil. I think on the things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of a good report. If there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, I think on those things. The God of peace is with me. Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me. I bless the holy name of Jesus forever.

Affirmations for: Career Success, Service and Stewardship


Career Success
1Titus 5:8 — But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
 
Service & Stewardship
Colossians 3:22 — Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God:
 
Lord when I hope in all my labor, I am a partaker of hope. When I work, it is fruitful because I commit the work of my hands to you. I work to provide for my household and you cause me to be blessed and lack nothing that is needful for my life and peace. When my work is excessive and causes me to fret or become tired, you give me rest and peace. It is not by might, nor by my own power, but it is by your Spirit that I succeed in what is set before me. Each day I am subject and faithful to fulfilling the requirements of my employment, even if my employer is not good or gentle toward me. I honor management, fellow employees and my place of work because I represent the kingdom of God as an ambassador. My actions never blaspheme the word of truth nor the name of God. Whatever I do is genuine, sincere and not with eye service as a man-pleaser. My inheritance is a reward as the servant of Christ, doing the will of God from my heart. My service is to you Lord and not to men. The good things that I do, I will receive good things from the Lord in return. My diligence, obedience and faithfulness to service yields promotion and financial increase.
 
As an employer, my business is built by righteousness, integrity and truth. I do not defraud, rob, withhold wages or other benefits from those who labor and help my business. I am a faithful servant over the small things, the greater things and even those things that belong to others. So when you come Lord, you shall find me faithful and I will be counted blessed and ruler over what you commit to me. My achievements and accomplishments are results of words and deeds all done in the name of the Lord Jesus. I give thanks to God and the Father in and by Jesus Christ. I am not weary in well doing because I reap in my due season and I do not faint. I do not faint in adversity, challenge, hindrance or necessities. I believe on you Lord and enter into your rest because my destiny and desire is to do your will, to finish what you have set before me and glorify you. A desire accomplished is sweet to my soul.

Affirmations for: Strength


STRENGTH
Psalm 118:14 — The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.
 
Lord you are my strength and power and you make my way perfect. Your great grace is sufficient for me and your strength is perfected in my weaknesses, infirmities, in reproaches, necessities, in persecutions and in distresses. For every instance of weakness you make me strong. I declare that you are my salvation and my God and I prepare a dwelling place in my heart and exalt you. You are faithful to give me the victory through my Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore I am strong and my hands are not weak, so my work is rewarded. Your wisdom makes me strong and knowledge of you gives me increased strength. I do not fear nor am I dismayed because you are my God and you are with me. You strengthen me, help me and uphold me by your right hand of righteousness. I am quiet and have confidence, and rest in your presence because I am saved and strengthened.
 
Your word has kept me from falling and prevented my knees from growing feeble in my stand for your righteousness. When a net is laid out in secret to entangle and capture me, when I cry out, you are never far from me. You are my Lord and strength in the time of trouble and you hasten to help me. This is the salvation of the Lord. I am born of God so I overcome the cares of this world and my victory to overcome is through faith in you. Lord you are my strength and power and you make my way perfect. I am strong in the Lord and in the power of your might. You are my strength and my shield. I am blessed when my strength and my ways abide in you. My heart does trust in you and I am helped, so my heart greatly rejoice with songs of praise to you. I am blessed when I abide within the gates that you strengthen and the hedges you thicken around me. I do not stagger at your promises through doubt and unbelief. I am strong in faith, declaring your glory. You are well able to perform every promise in your covenant because I am fully persuaded in your truth. You are the God of Israel who gives strength and power to his people. Blessed be God.

Affirmations for: Bearing Fruit of the Spirit


From the book: Talk to God with Affirmations of Faith

BEARING FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT

Ephesians 4:23-24 —

And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

 

Thank you Lord that I have been given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. I am able to walk in the Spirit and not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Now that I belong to you, I die daily and crucify my flesh to follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience and meekness. You have not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. I seek your knowledge so that temperance is added to my life and I am able to put off former conversations that reflect the old man, which is corrupt according to deceitful lusts. My mouth speaks the truth in love. I give no place to the devil by yielding to a hasty spirit of lying. Anger, wrath or corrupt conversation of evil speaking, bitterness and malice is far from me. I am a prisoner of the Lord and you have called me to a holy vocation of walking in meekness, with long suffering, forbearing one another in love. I am patient in spirit, speaking those things that are edifying and ministers grace to the hearer. I will not grieve the Holy Spirit wherein I have been sealed until the day of redemption. With kindness, I am tenderhearted and forgiving because you have forgiven me and did not leave me to my own destructions. May I always be found as good ground, honest, and with a good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

 

Your covenant is with me for life and peace which passes all understanding and guards my heart and mind through Christ Jesus. As I rule my spirit I am counted mightier than he that takes a city. My rest is in the Lord and I wait patiently for you because I will not be cutoff and I shall inherit the earth. I love your law, precepts and commandments to obtain great peace and nothing offends me. I put on the Lord Jesus Christ as my covering so no provision is made to fulfill the lust of the flesh. Your kingdom is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. I give all diligence to add faith, virtue and knowledge to my life so that the old man is crucified with Jesus Christ and the body of sin might be destroyed, and I should not be a servant to sin.

Affirmation for: Walking in Obedience


From the book: Talk to God with Affirmations of Faith
Copyright: August 1, 2011
 
 

WALKING IN OBEDIENCE

Genesis 22:18 — And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

 

My Lord and Father keeping your law, precepts and commandments are not hard or burdensome because my heart is full of love for you. By the enabling power of your Holy Spirit, I daily purify my soul by obeying your truth and loving my brethren without condition or pretense. When I obey your word my mind is renewed so I can keep my thoughts captive to the obedience of Christ. I know that when I hear and obey your voice I receive blessings that shall come on me and overtake me. I am willing and obedient and I eat the good of the land. My reasonable service is to reverence you, love you with my heart, mind and spirit, walk in your ways, serve you with joy and gladness and treasure your law as my necessary food. Therefore daily, I present myself as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to you Lord as I obey your word.

Affirmation for: THE INNER LIFE


From the book: Talk to God with Affirmations of Faith

The Inner Life

3John 1:2 — Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

 

Father I present my body a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to you, which is my reasonable service. I am not conformed to this world, and I hold fast to the truth of your word that transforms and renews my mind. My lifestyle is the evidence that your word is working effectually in me. I am able to prove the good and acceptable and perfect will of God. I am found a faithful steward over your word, steadfast, unmoveable and always abounding in the work of the Lord. All of my labor, what I do in word or deed, is done in your name Lord Jesus, so my labor is not in vain.

 

Thank you for helping me to bear the burdens of others and to love others as you have loved me. I am counted in your eyesight as one who, out of the good treasures of my heart, brings forth that which is good. Out of the abundance of my heart my mouth speaks the law of kindness, grace, comfort, edification and exhortation to others. My companions are those who are wise because destruction waits for those who walk with fools. When I rest I have your peace and sweet sleep and I dwell in the safety of your presence. My ears are attentive to your voice and you speak peace to your people and your saints and I am kept from turning again to folly. You are the God of patience and consolation and I am like-minded toward others according to Christ Jesus. With one mind and one mouth I glorify God, even the Father of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I receive others as Christ received me to the the glory of God.
