An affirmation is a carefully formatted statement that should be repeated to one’s self and written down frequently. For an affirmation to be effective, it needs to be present tense, positive, personal and specific. (Wikipedia)
I used to do affirmations each day. I began them with “I am” because of the Great I AM; Jesus Who is capable of all things, so I am also capable because of Him living inside me.
The enemy will get in your head and convince you that you are not something, and I think affirmations are a great way to train your mind and remind yourself of who you are.
I recently dusted off this old App I used to use all the time. It is by Christian Word Ministries. It is a free App called Prayer Book. They have a section of “I am in Christ Affirmations.”
