Use these 40 Biblical Affirmations for women to speak truth and life over yourself. As Proverbs 18:21 says, “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. You’ll find guides, ideas and answers to your questions about speaking God’s affirming words over your everyday actions.
Why Use Biblical Affirmations?
As a Christian woman you will often encounter situations where you feel the conviction of the Holy Spirit to change your habits, choices, negative thoughts, and more. Scriptures tell us
To put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.Ephesians 4:22-23
Sometimes when faced with this tall order you may think, “Oh I just need to buckle down and stop yelling”.
Your attention is focused on the action you want to be different–but you’re focusing on the wrong thing. Think about it: you feel angry at your kids so you yell, but if you dig deeper underneath your actions and your feelings is a thought.
Maybe it’s “I deserve kids who will listen to me.” or “They should be able to pick up their toys without being told”.
When we speak truth over ourselves using powerful statements full of Biblical truth we are getting to the root of the problem–our historic sinful thinking patterns. We are choosing to “put off the old self” and replacing it with a renewed mind. This isn’t doable in our own strength, but is a process we engage with by the power of the Holy Spirit.
You can use daily affirmations from the Word of God to help you think like Paul instructs in his letter to the church in Philippa.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.Philippians 4:8
As you change the way you think, you shift the spiritual temperature in your life. You become the thermostat, the influencer in your house–instead of the thermometer, always reacting to what is already there.
What is an affirmation?
Simple, truthful statements spoken as if they are already happening.
What are some Biblical affirmations?
Biblical affirmations are based on Biblical truths found in God’s Word. They can encourage you to turn from sin or give strength in difficult times. Things like…
- I am a beloved child of God.
- I am deeply valued for who I am not just what I do.
- Fear has no hold on me.
You may not believe these statements yet, but they can still help you. You can create your own Christian affirmations or see the list below for some of my personal favorites that I have used.
How do affirmations work?
The principle for affirmations can be traced to the Think – Feel – Do cycle. This is a psychological principle that says all of the actions you take can be traced back to a thought. You do what you do because you feel what you feel because you think what you think.
We also see this principle reflected in Scripture, reminding us that all truth is God’s truth.
Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.Romans 8:5-6
How Biblical affirmations can help you:
Affirmations create a self-fulfilling prophecy by changing your actions at the thought level. By repeating with your mouth and picturing in your head the true, noble, excellent or praiseworthy–you begin to create more of that in your life without even thinking about it.
As I write and say the thought, “I speak glowingly and gratefully about my body.” I begin to feel more proud of my body. I begin to see it as a gift, even if it is imperfect. Which in turn creates the actions of not tearing down my body with words like “My stomach is ugly” and treating my body with love and respect by fueling it with healthy food and movement.
Daily affirmations are great to speak and write over yourself each morning when you have your time with God.
You can also add them to a habit you’re already doing like saying them aloud when you put your makeup on or when you are driving in the car to pick up the kiddos from school. (Post-its are a great way to remind yourself too!)
I also keep a big Trello board and note on my phone of all my favorite affirmations so I can speak truth over my health, my kids, my family, and my brain whenever I need it!
