Affirmation Power – How to Overcome Fear and Strengthen Your Courage with Affirmations

Affirmation Power – How to Overcome Fear and Strengthen Your Courage with Affirmations

Why Not Put the Power of Affirmations to Work for Your Benefit?

Affirmations are a powerful force in helping direct our lives.

If you are lacking in any quality…

you can strengthen it with regular affirmations.

They will make your brain clearer…

and your thoughts more effective.

“An affirmation is a statement of Truth consciously used so as to become the directing power of Life’s expression.” 
— Orison Swett Marden

Fearful Thoughts Versus Courageous Thinking

Would you like to overcome fear in your life? If you are a coward anywhere in your nature, which most people are, you can put the power of affirmations to work for your benefit.

Strengthen your courage by regularly affirming that you are absolutely fearless, that you are courageous, and that nothing can harm you. Consider that fear is simply the sense of danger. But when you have perfect confidence in the great Creator and His purpose for your life, when you trust in Him completely, there will be no cause for fear.

God has a plan for your life and He says it is not to harm you, but to prosper you and give you a hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11) Once you convince yourself that there is a good plan for your life, and that the opposing thoughts must be a delusion, you will gradually lose the sense of fear and gain the courage you desire.

“Nerve us with incessant affirmation. Don’t bark against the bad, but chant the beauties of the good.” 
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Affirmations Create Power

Determine today not to harbor anything in your mind which you do not wish to become real in your life. Every time you feel a sense of fear coming over you, replace it by saying something such as the following affirmation:

‘I am absolutely fearless; I am strong and courageous because the Lord is my God and my helper; I am more than a conqueror and always triumph in Christ.’

Do not entertain a weak or fearful thought. Instead replace them with confident, hopeful, optimistic thoughts. If you form the habit of affirming to yourself bold and courageous thoughts, as soon as a sense of fear arises, you will be surprised to see how quickly you can change the whole course of your thoughts. And when this is changed, the feeling will change also.

You will begin to increase your courage and confidence, and this is half the battle. You will soon find that your environment will begin to change. Hope will increase and you will have a healthier outlook on life. Your thoughts, instead of depressing your mind, will be a perpetual encouragement of courage and confidence that drives out fear.

Now what? Discover the wonderful advantage available to you by starting out every morning with the mindset of affirming the confident and courageous person God created you to be. Let affirmations create a powerful force that make it difficult for any discouraging and fearful thoughts to take over. Overcome fear and strengthen your courage with powerful affirmations.

May your mind be filled with courageous, confident affirmations and your life full of growing prosperity!

God bless you –

Cheers,
Brenda

    Brenda,
    Thank you so much for your sharing of the word of God. Especially the post for yesterday (7/20) regarding affirmation power. I have been digging deeper into the word of God and trying not to rush through my daily readings and believe your meditation CD will help me greatly.

    I have noticed fear and anxiety trying to creep into my life recently, especially since the passing of my grandmother in April and my mother a few years ago. I am determined to remain strong and be a warrior for Christ and continue to fulfill God’s purpose and plan for me to be a blessing to others and a strong woman of God.

    I am currently up for a ptomotion at my company where I have been 8+ years and I see political things happening and how satan would want to steal my blessings, but I trust the Lord and will remain focused on Him no matter what happens.

    Thank you again for your website and resources. I feel blessed already to have found you/them.

    In Him,
    Amanda

    Thanks for your comments Amanda and you’re welcome! I hope you enjoy the meditation CD.

    Your determination to stay strong in the Lord no matter what, is REALLY encouraging to me! I’m sorry for the loss of your loved ones. Give yourself permission to grieve, but have peace knowing that they have simply graduated before us to that glorious place in heaven where we long to be with our heavenly Father. They are now part of that great cloud of witnesses cheering us on.

    I will be in prayer for you for your promotion. God takes care of His children so continue to keep trusting Him regardless of what your circumstances look like. I can look back in life now and see that things I one time thought were unanswered prayers, were actually blessings in disguise and helping put me in a position God wanted me to be.

    Satan is NOT going to steal your blessings as long as you keep your eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith! I pray that you do that and continue to be a strong warrior for Christ. 🙂

    God bless you – Brenda

    Brenda,
    I just had to thank you again for your prayers as I have just accepted the offer for my promotion – Praise the Lord!! HE is so good all the time!!!

    I know that HE has placed me in this position to glorify HIM and be a light in this dark place to make a positive difference in the lives of others and I know I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me and will not be afraid, so with that I am looking forward to the wonderful things to come.

    Thank you for your resources and for being such a strong woman of God staying true to the word of God and sharing it with others.

    It means a lot to me to be able to share this praise report with you and I wanted you to know that you have been a wonderful blessing to me.

    God bless you always!!
    Amanda
