Spiritual Affirmations for Your Mental Health

Before we go any further, I think it is vital as young women (and men) of God, we HAVE to know what the Word of God (the Bible) has to say about us. So, I will share with you some spiritual affirmations you can use in your daily life to fight against the negative thoughts and words that are used to speak against your identity in God:

(all scriptures are in the New Living Translation)

• I am God’s Child because John 1:12 says, ““But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.”

• As a disciple (follower of Jesus Christ), I am a friend of Jesus Christ because John 15:15 says, ““I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me.”

• I have been JUSTIFIED and I have been declared RIGHTEOUS because Romans 5:1 says, ““Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us.”

• I am united with the Lord, and I am One with Him in Spirit because 1 Corinthians 6:17 says, ““But the person who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him.”

• I have been BOUGHT with a price AND I BELONG to GOD because 1 Corinthians 6:19,20 says, ““Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.”

• I am a member of Christ’s body because 1 Corinthians 12:27 says, ““All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it.”

• I have been chosen by God and adopted as His child, because Ephesians 1:3-8 says, “All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.”

• I have been REDEEMED and FORGIVEN of ALL my sins, because Colossians 1:13,14 says, ““For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.”

• I am COMPLETE/WHOLE in Christ, because Colossians 2:9,10 says, ““For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body. So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority.”

• I have DIRECT access to the throne of grace through Jesus Christ (which means you can talk to Him at any given time, convinced that He actually hears and responds to You in His timing) because Hebrews 4:14-16 says, ““So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.”

These affirmations are for you to go to war against the negative thoughts that fill your head. Those are not of God and now you have tools to fight against them by clinging to the word of God. He truly cares about and loves you and is concerned about your mental and emotional health. May you truly receive the TRUTH that YOU (yes, you) are truly accepted and adored by Your Abba, Father.
