Do you know who you are in Christ? Can you honestly accept the truth in God’s word about your true identity? God knows who you are and He calls you what He sees not what the world sees in you. Your life can never remain the same again when you agree with what God says in his word about you. Why not try changing your words from saying, “I don’t think I can make it”, to “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”.

These are just small samplings of positive declarations you can speak over yourself based on the Word of God. It would be a good idea to make a habit of saying these declarations until the truths they affirm become deeply rooted in your heart. Also make sure you aren’t taking sides against what God has said about you by monitoring every word that comes out of your mouths henceforth.
