For whatever reason when we think of affirmations we think of affirmations being some new age crap. But who says? Why can’t there be Christian affirmations or Biblical affirmations that we can use in the same way? In fact, I personally think that is what God intended. That is why Jesus said this whole thing about the faith of a mustard seed.
Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20
Meaning that you have to speak things into the existence, and call upon things as through that were:
God who gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were Romans 4:17
And that by simply opening up our mouth we have a WHOLE LOT OF POWER. The power to speak life or death into your situation and I can tell you from personal experience that I was speaking death to my own situation FOR THE LONGEST TIME (all for the sake of not wanting to be disappointed) and not even knowing it.
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. Proverbs 18:21
If you can bear with me for a second I want to tell you a REAL life story of how I was speaking death and when I decided to start speaking life AKA positive affirmations I transitioned into a full-time entrepreneur after trying to do so FOR YEARS! The fact of the matter is that I have been juggling a full-time job and my business for a LONG and I do mean a LONG time since 2012 to be exact. God kept revealing to me to take a leap of faith into my business full time. BUT there was a difference between failing at this test and there was a difference between passing the test. And the difference was affirmations.
Back in 2014, I FAILED the test horribly. I took a leap of faith without a plan which was the first issue and because I did not have a plan and in came the self-doubt. Where was the money going to come from, how was I going to do this, how was I going to do that, why would God do this for me, nothing was going to happen, I am always broke, I will always be broke, and I just looked at the sky and prayed with a bunch of self-doubt wishing and hoping and praying that something would happen somehow WITHOUT actually believing it would. Sounds backward right? And as a result, nothing did and I was broke because that is what I spoke until I entered back into the workforce because of a failed business.
I stayed in this mindset for a long time even after I got a 9-5. Stunted in fear, still working on my business and making tremendous strides BUT still remaining in self-doubt and speaking down to my own destiny because of what happened last time and me not wanting to repeat past mistakes. And so my progress was still stunted despite all the work I put in.
BUT here came the same test again. I was working endlessly on my business and I was working a full-time job AND God told me to leap again. This time I was not going to just be stupid. Leaping into the abyss with no plan and a bunch of self-doubts. Because I realized that the reason why it was not fully working out for me is that I was speaking down to my own destiny and not believing (Click here to read my blog on the power of the tongue).
Whenever Jesus healed someone notice that He always said that your faith has healed you (Mark 5:34, Luke 17:19). BUT when He could not heal someone notice that He always said that it was because the person lacked faith (Matthew 13:58). Yes, God can do a lot but working over your insecurities and doubt is NOT one of those things. And so, I got rid of my negative thinking.

This time I did positive affirmations from the Christian Manifestation Guide I created which you can buy here or click the picture below, and now I am a full-time entrepreneur. It is amazing how affirmations, coupled with faith, and action can change your life. And although I highly encourage you to get my guide, I am still going to share 10 Christian and Biblical Affirmations below That Will Change Your Life.
The main thing that keeps people held back is FEAR, that is why the following affirmations are based on increasing faith. (Remember the whole faith of a mustard seed) AND eliminating fear. This will assist God in answering your prayers.
If you want to come up with your own affirmations for the future:
As a little tidbit if you want to come up with Christian affirmations on your own remember that it is best to come up with Biblical affirmations. Like in my Christian Manifestation Guide, I have both the Bible verse AND the affirmation. It is easy for you to affirm and increase your faith if you know without a shadow of a doubt that what you are saying is a Bible-based. That way you know that what you are affirming is directly in accordance with God’s word and you are not just pulling it from the sky and hoping for the best.
Next, you come up with your own affirmation that is in alignment with the Biblical affirmation (meaning the Bible scripture) AND that meets what it is in your life that you want to affirm. For example, in my Christian Manifestation Guide, I address self-esteem, faith, prosperity, and more. AND all of the Christian affirmations are backed up with scripture. Now that I have talked your head off, let’s get to what you came here for shall we? The 10 affirmations:
Biblical Affirmation #1: Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:24
Christian Affirmation #1: I have prayed and asked God for what I want and therefore release any doubt. I know that God is working overtime to make sure that what I have prayed for will come to pass.
Biblical Affirmation #2: Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1
Christian Affirmation #2: Although I may not know, see, or understand what God is doing behind the scenes. I trust and choose to have faith that all the things that I have hoped are on there way in my life as I speak.
Biblical Affirmation #3: But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. James 1:6
Christian Affirmation #3: I am a believer and not a doubter, I stand firm in my faith and I stand firm in what I ask. I do not live in fear, doubt, and unbelief and know that none of these things are of God. I also understand that hanging on to these emotions hinder my prayers and so I choose to release them right now.
Biblical Affirmation #4: And without faith, it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:6
Christian Affirmation #4: With faith, everything is possible, with faith mountains can be moved, and so I choose to have unshakable faith knowing that when I do so I am allowing God to do the impossible in my life.
Biblical Affirmation #5: Everything is possible for one who believes. Mark 9:23
Christian Affirmation #5: I believe in the power of God, I believe in the impossible, I believe that everything that I ask for no matter how big or impossible it may seem to others, is possible with God.
Biblical Affirmation #6: In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. James 2:17
Christian Affirmation #6: Not only do I choose to have faith but every day I choose to act toward the things I am believing God for. Using wisdom and discernment to know which actions I should take.
Biblical Affirmation #7: Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12
Christian Affirmation #7: I believe in me and what God can do through me. I reject and refuse other people’s negativity, jealously, and choose to believe what can be done through God and not through man.
Biblical Affirmation #8: Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them. John 7:38
Christian Affirmation #8: I have the power of God that flows through me and I will harness that power to receive blessings in my life.
Biblical Affirmation #9: Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 1 Timothy 6:12
Christian Affirmation #9: God never promised that things will be easy, but God does promise that I have everything that I need within me to fight the good fight. So, I believe that no matter what I am going through good, bad, or indifferent; I am well equipped to handle whatever comes my way.
Biblical Affirmation #10: I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong— that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith. Romans 1:11-12
Christian Affirmation #10: I have unique gifts and talents that were imparted within me that are unlike anyone else and that makes me strong and God gave me the wisdom to use them to make me strong.
These are the 10 Christian and Biblical affirmations that I know will change your life, say them daily, believe them AND take actions toward them. Remember faith without works is DEAD. There is no need to speaking works into existence for the sake of speaking them without having faith and without taking action.
