10 Verses to Speak Over Your Life Every Day

10 Scriptures

In a previous post, we discussed how what we believe and are constantly speaking about ourselves and our lives is what we will often see happen, and how God wants us to believe what His Word says, speak words that agree with it, and see His promises to us come to pass. How can we do this?

First of all, before you can believe God’s Word, you need to take time to find out what it says. Secondly, once you’re spending time in God’s Word, one way to speak words that agree with it is to actually take promises from it and speak them over your life. Take a verse with a promise from God that you love, and declare what it says about you on a daily basis!

Not sure where to start? Here are 10 scriptures to speak over your life every day!

Standing Before God – “Because Jesus took my sin upon Himself, I am the righteousness of God in Him.” (2 Corinthians 5:21)

Favor – “God’s favor surrounds me like a shield!” (Psalm 5:12)

Wisdom – “I ask God for wisdom, and He gives me an abundant supply of it.” (James 1:7)

Health – “Because of the stripes that Jesus received when He was whipped, I am healed.” (Psalm 53:5)

Protection – “God keeps me from every kind of harm, and watches over me.” (Psalm 121:7)

Success – “Everything I put my hand to is blessed.” (Deuteronomy 28:8)

Finances – “God blesses me abundantly, so that I have all that I need, and can be generous to others at all times.” (2 Corinthians 9:8)

Peace – “I am not anxious, worried, or stressed because I keep my focus on God, and He keeps me in perfect peace.” (Isaiah 26:3)

Joy – “I am not depressed or downcast because sorrow and sighing flee from me, and gladness and everlasting joy are mine.” (Isaiah 52:22)

Forgiveness – “God has forgiven me for all of my sins – so completely that He no longer even remembers them!” (Hebrews 8:12)

The God Of Hope

The God Of HopeThis week’s memory verse from Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is Romans 15:13. This verse says may the God of hope, as we trust in Him, fill us with joy and peace, that by the power of the Holy Spirit, we may overflow with hope.

Have you ever been in a situation that made you feel hopeless? No matter what we are facing, there’s no need for us to be without hope, because the God of hope is with us! If we ask Him, He will fill us with His joy and peace, which the world can’t take from us. As we fix our eyes upon Him, we will be lifted out of hopelessness, and overflow with hope!

God is the One from whom our hope comes (Psalm 62:5). If we place our hope in those around us, they will let us down, for try as they might, people make mistakes. God, on the other hand, is perfect. He will never let us down. Therefore, if we place our hope in Him, we will never be disappointed!

Allow the God of hope to fill you with joy and peace. Trust in Him, and find hope, regardless of your circumstances!

FRUIT of the Spirit

FRUIT of the Spirit

Week 31 of Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is drawing to a close. This week’s reading was Galatians 3-6, and Ephesians 1. These chapters finish Paul’s letter to the church at Galatia, and begin his letter to the church at Ephesus.

Galatians 5:22-23 lists the fruit of the Spirit as love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Notice that these qualities are called the FRUIT of the Spirit, not the WORKS of the Spirit! In other words, gaining possession of these qualities isn’t something we are to do on our own. They are the natural outflowing of the Spirit of God that is inside of us. The closer we draw to Him, the more we will become like Him.

Do trees struggle and strive to produce fruit? No, they don’t. It’s just a natural part of how they function. In the same way, we aren’t to struggle and strive, trying to walk in the fruit of the Spirit by our own might. Like any fruit, it will grow naturally – as we get to know our Heavenly Father better, and allow His grace and love to transform us from the inside out!

Don’t treat the fruit of the Spirit as a list of qualities you’d love to have, but must constantly be working to try to live in. Treat it instead as fruit that you know will grow naturally in your life, because of the Spirit of God is living inside of you, and working within you!

Be Filled With Peace As You Trust In Him

Be Filled With Peace As You Trust In HimThis week’s memory verse from Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is Philippians 4:6-7. These verses bid us to be anxious for nothing, but in everything, to present our requests to God, and they promise us that His peace will guard our hearts and minds.

What are you anxious about today? Is there something that’s causing you to worry? Why don’t you talk to God about it?  ALL things are possible with Him (Matthew 19:26)! Nothing’s too big for Him to handle. Nothing that bothers you is too small for Him to concern Himself with. As your loving Heavenly Father, He wants to take care of you, and meet all of your needs, in every area of your life.

When you bring you concerns before God, you can be at peace, knowing He is both willing and able to handle whatever it is that you’ve brought before Him. Your mind can be at ease, and your heart can be at rest, knowing that you’ve cast your burden upon the One with whom nothing’s impossible (Luke 1:37).

Instead of being anxious, present your requests to God, and allow yourself to be filled with His peace, as you trust in Him!

In Perfect Peace

In Perfect PeaceThis week’s memory verse from Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is Isaiah 26:3. It says that God will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because their trust is in Him.

Are you ever worried? Anxious? Do you ever feel like your mind is racing at the speed of a thousand miles per hour? God promises to keep in perfect peace those whose minds are stayed on Him. As we focus on our Heavenly Father – how much He loves and cares for us, and how He is able to do far more than we could ever ask or think (Ephesians 3:20-21) – we will begin to experience the peace He wants for us.

In Philippians 4:6, we are told to be anxious for nothing, but in everything, to present our requests to God. The more we begin to trust in Him with whatever is causing us worry, the more our minds will be at rest, knowing that He will accomplish for us and through us what we can’t accomplish on our own.

Those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in God, will be kept in perfect peace. Know that He is more than able to handle anything life may throw your way. Learn to trust in Him at all times, and begin to walk in the peace that He has for you!

All That He Has Done For Us

All That He Has Done For UsThis week’s memory verse for Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is Isaiah 53:5. This verse states that Jesus was wounded for our transgressions and crushed for our iniquities, that the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and that by His stripes, we are healed.

Jesus was wounded for our transgressions, and crushed for our iniquities. Sin must be punished, and Jesus took our sins upon Himself, suffering the punishment that we deserved. Through the giving of His life for us at the cross, He paid the price for our sins once and for all.

When we do something wrong, we experience this feeling, deep down, that someone must pay. It’s hard for us to truly be at peace when we are plagued by condemnation, guilt, and shame over failures. God wants us to rest, however, in the knowledge that the chastisement for our peace was upon Christ – that He has paid the price for each and every wrong we have ever committed, or ever will commit. Knowing this, we can experience the true peace that God wants us to walk in.

By Jesus’ stripes, we are healed. He purchased our healing. He bought back our health and wholeness. With every lash He bore, sickness and disease met their end. Because of what He has done, all manner of illness and infirmity has no right to remain on our bodies. The stripes that He bore guaranteed our health and healing, if only we will receive them.

Jesus did all of this for you and me. Through His death, He paid the price for our sins, for us to experience peace, and for divine health and healing to be ours. Let’s give thanks to our Savior for all that He has done for us, and walk in all that He has provided for us by giving His life on our behalf!

He Is With You

He Is With YouGod is our light and salvation (Psalm 27:1). He is always with us, as a mighty warrior, to save us (Zephaniah 3:17). With Him on our side, we have nothing to fear.

Our God is a good God. His plans for us are for our prosperity, not for our harm (Jeremiah 29:11). Those who seek Him lack no good thing (Psalm 34:10). No matter what your circumstances, trust that your Heavenly Father will take care of you.

Let us set our hope on the Lord, for He will never disappoint. We can place our confidence in His goodness and love. Regardless of whatever situation we may find ourselves in, we will be kept in perfect peace if our mind is stayed on Him (Isaiah 26:3).

The Lord is with you. You have nothing to fear. He is a good God, with good plans for you. Set your hope on Him, and see His provision manifest in your life!

Rejoice in His Finished Work

Rejoice in His Finished WorkIsaiah 53:5 states that Jesus was wounded for our wrongdoings, upon Him was the chastisement for our peace, and that we are healed by His stripes. He took our sins upon Himself, bearing the punishment that we deserved, that we might be forgiven. Because of His work at the cross, we – through faith in Him – have been made righteous (Romans 3:22). We can be at peace, knowing that the price for our sins has been paid in full. Jesus’ body was broken, that we might be made whole. It is by His stripes that we are healed. Through Him, we have been qualified to receive all of God’s blessings, including healing. Let’s give thanks for all that Christ has accomplished for us! Let’s rejoice in His finished work!

A Heart of Gratitude – Day Twelve

A Heart of Gratitude - Day Twelve“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.” Colossians 3:15, NASB

Colossians 3:15 bids us to be thankful. There are many things in each of our lives for which we can give thanks. God provides us with many blessings on a daily basis. At times, however, we tend to over look some of them.

Our Heavenly Father blesses us in many more ways than we often realize. Some of the ways in which He provides for us may seem, to our minds, such everyday occurrences that we end up taking them for granted. We’ll never know the full extent of the greater dangers, as well as the more trifling vexations, that our Heavenly Father’s loving care shields us from. These, added to the more obvious ways in which His provision can be seen, give us ample reason to give thanks to our Father in heaven.

The biggest and greatest gift that God has given each one of us is the gift of His Son, who gave His life for us. He died for us while we were, as yet, sinners (Romans 5:8). He made a way for us to be reconciled to God (2 Corinthians 5:19). We have received the gift of right standing with the King of Kings, not because of anything that we have done, but because of what His Son did for us at the cross. This in and of itself is more than enough reason to praise our wonderful God!

Do you ever have a hard time being thankful? Perhaps you’re going through troubling circumstances, and no matter how hard you try, you just can’t seem to find anything for which to be grateful. If you are going through tough times, you can give thanks to God that He has provided the miracle – big or small – that you are in need of. Nothing is impossible with Him (Luke 1:37). He has good plans for you – plans not for your harm, but to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11). He is completely capable of doing far more than we could ever ask or think (Ephesians 3:29). Look to Him and receive your answer today!

We each have many reasons to be thankful, and express our gratitude to our Heavenly Father. He cares for us in countless ways, some of which we don’t even recongnize.  He gave His one and only Son for us, as the greatest possible proof of His love. Even in the midst of difficult circumstances, we can give thanks to Him, confident that He is both willing and able to make a way for us when may seem that there is none.With so many causes for gratitude on our part, let’s cultivate a spirit of thankfulness, and be on the look out for things for which to thank our wonderful God!

What is something that you can thank the Lord for right now? Comment below to share. Take a moment to express your thanks to our Father in Heaven!
