allow the Spirit of God to stir us up
and make us happy.
There is power in God’s Word to
renew our mind and replace negative
thoughts with positive life filled thoughts.
If we find ourselves dwelling on the same discouraging,
depressing, stressful, worrisome thoughts, then we need to put a stop to it.
How? By replacing negative thoughts with truths from the Word of God.
Replace Negative Thoughts with Positive Truths
You see, meditation on scripture gives us understanding of how God sees us and our future. In His scriptures we find words of hope, joy, peace, and encouragement.
“My meditation of Him shall be sweet and I will be glad in the Lord.”
— Psalm 104:34
We can help make the truths of God’s Word become a part of our mental dialogue by listening to Christian Meditation CDs or Biblical Affirmation CDs during our morning routine, at the office, in the car, while doing chores, and when falling asleep. Then when negative thoughts try to surface, our mind will be prepared and ready to affirm God’s Word instead.
The great thing about affirmations is that it is like planting positive seeds of change. Our minds are able to focus on the new positive thoughts, which will eventually grow to replace the old negative ones.
Biblical affirmations are scriptures that are stated in a positive, first person, present tense form. It is important to make them positive, because the things we hear repeatedly get deposited into our subconscious. And our subconscious takes in everything as if it is real.
Biblical Affirmation Example
Let’s look at an example of a positive biblical affirmation…
Have you ever had a time of struggling with fear? Well, we know that God says, He has not given us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7) The truth of God’s Word is that fear is not of Him. What is of God is power, love and a sound mind.
In this example we would not want to affirm ‘I am not afraid’, or ‘I do not fear’. Why? Because our subconscious is going to hear us confessing fear.
So what should the affirmation be? Make the affirmation: ‘God has given me a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind.’
Begin now to fill your mind with this affirmation and your fears will begin to fade. The instant you become fearful, start confessing this affirmation and put a stop to the fearful thoughts instantly.
The success in using affirmations is repetition and speaking them out loud. You must listen to or read affirmations over and over until they begin to take root and grow.
So there you have it: Make Christian meditation and biblical affirmations a daily habit. Maintain a positive attitude and a bright outlook on life with the life transforming power of God’s Word. It is His desire that all believers tap into it as they grow nearer to Him.
Why not begin meditating and affirming the powerful Word of God in your life today?
God bless you always,
