Your thoughts are powerful
You can’t see or touch it, but your thoughts and beliefs have a huge impact on your life. The things you think about yourself, others and the world around you dictate how you act and respond to different situations.

Should Christians use affirmations?
Do I think self-centred, name-it-and-claim-it affirmations are the way to go, no. But biblically based affirmations can help you focus on God and attract the attention of heaven in your life.
When we start to speak the word of God over ourselves, things happen. We start to believe that we are fearfully and wonderfully made.
We believe that God knows the plans for our lives and that he plans to give us hope. We believe that he is doing good work in and through us and that we have no need to be afraid or terrified because wherever we go we know that Christ Jesus has gone before us and he’s commanded us to be strong and courageous.
I have always used the word ‘Declarations’ when sharing with others how they can speak the truth of God over their life prophetically.
We are affirming what is true in Scripture and how it applies to our lives by declaring the goodness of God.
What are the main differences between biblical affirmations and positive affirmations?
Biblical affirmations are based on scripture, while positive affirmations are based on the power of positive thinking.
Biblical affirmations are absolute and true statements about who you are in Christ, while positive affirmations are often self-centred manifestation mantras.
Biblical affirmations are true whether you feel like it or not, while positive affirmations only work if you believe them to be true.
