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)

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)

The Lord’s Promises

The Lord's PromisesAngel tells Mary of Jesus’ birth –
Luke 1:26-38

God sent an angel to a young woman by the name of Mary, informing her that she would give birth to a son, whom she was to name Jesus. Notice the angel’s first words to her – a greeting to her as highly favored. These same words are true of us today. When Jesus came, truth and grace – the unmerited favor of our Heavenly Father towards us – came with Him (John 1:17). We have been made right with God through Jesus’ sacrifice, and Psalm 5:12 speaks of God’s favor surrounding the righteous as with a shield. Psalm 39:5 declares that the favor of the Lord lasts a lifetime. We now have God’s favor upon our lives, not because of anything that we have done, but because of what Christ has done for us. Because of our Savior, we truly are highly favored by our God!

In verse 29 of Luke chapter 1, we find that Mary was greatly troubled at the angel’s words of salutation – the assurance of God’s favor and of His presence – wondering what kind of a greeting it was. The angel told her to fear not, declaring that she had found favor with God. Then he went on to deliver the message that she was to give birth to a son, whom she was to name Jesus. The angel further informed her that the child she bore would be called the Son of the Most High, and that His kingdom would never end.

Mary’s response to the angel’s words was to question how this could be, considering that she was a virgin. Have you ever felt God speaking something to your heart that seemed impossible to you at the time? Have you ever wondered how certain promises of His could ever come to pass in your life, considering sundry seemingly insurmountable obstacles? How was a woman, who was yet a virgin, to conceive and give birth to a child?

The angel’s reply to her question was that the Holy Spirit would come upon her, and that she would be overshadowed by the Most High. After this, he spoke of how her relative, Elizabeth, who was said to be unable to conceive, was to have a child in her old age, and in fact was in the sixth month of her pregnancy. Then he wound it all up with the assurance that nothing was impossible with God – that no word from Him ever would fail (Luke 1:37).

In those times when we feel God speaking to us the impossible, it behooves us to recognize that it isn’t our might nor power that is to bring about the miraculous, but rather God’s ability working in us and through us. Our part is to simply cooperate with what He is wanting to accomplish. (To read a story of how God has proven Himself faithful to His word in my life, check out the L.A. Bound series of posts!) Just like the angel informed Mary of the fact that Elizabeth was to have a baby even in her old age, it is beneficial for us to remind ourselves of all that God has done for us and our loved ones in the past. After all, if He’s brought us this far, surely He can continue to lead us going forward. We must also remember that what’s impossible with man is completely possible with our powerful God (Luke 18:27), and that all of His promises will come to pass. When He speaks, He acts. When He promises, He fulfills (Numbers 23:19).

At the end of the day, our best response to what we feel that God wants to bring about in our lives is summed up by the words of Mary to the angel in Luke 1:38 (NASB) – “‘ . . . may it be done to me according to your word . . .'” God has many wonders He wants to perform through each of us, if we will listen and cooperate. Know that you are highly favored by your Heavenly Father, and that He desires many good things for your life. Place your trust in Him, and see His promises come to pass before your very eyes!
