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)

 

True Wisdom

True WisdomWeek 25 of Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is drawing to a close. This week’s reading was
1 Corinthians 2-6. These chapters continue one of Paul’s epistles to the church at Corinth.

1 Corinthians 3:18-19 states that if we think we are wise by the standards of this age, we should become “fools,” in order to actually become wise. It goes on to state that the world’s wisdom is foolishness in God’s sight.

The world has many mindsets and ways of doing things that are considered wise by a majority of people, that really end in disaster and heartache. Many follow the wisdom of the world, only to end up at a destination that is not what they had in mind. They discover that the world’s wisdom truly is foolishness.

The only true wisdom is the wisdom of God, which He gives liberally and without reproach to all who ask (James 1:5). When we do things His way, we may appear foolish to others, but in reality, we are saving ourselves from the problems that arise when we follow the world’s foolishness as if it were wisdom.

Let’s resolve to seek after true wisdom – the wisdom of God, which He is more than willing to give us – rather than following the wisdom (or rather foolishness) of the world. Let’s do things His way!

Trust In What Christ Has Done

Trust In What Christ Has Done

Week 24 of Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is drawing to a close. This week’s reading was Romans 13-16, and
1 Corinthians 1. These chapters finish Paul’s letter to the church at Rome, and begin one of his epistles to the church at Corinth.

1 Corinthians 1:30 says that Christ has become for us wisdom from God – our righteousness, holiness, and redemption.

We are in Christ. Our identity is found in Him. Our relationship with God, and our standing before Him, is based not off of anything that we have done. It is based off of what Christ has done for us. God doesn’t accept us because we have done enough good things, or are good enough people. He welcomes us as His children because we believe in His Son, who gave His life for us.

Our righteousness and holiness don’t come from ourselves. We haven’t done anything to earn our own redemption. Christ is our righteousness. He is our holiness. In Him is our redemption. Let’s learn to trust in what He has done for us, rather than our own efforts, in our relationship with God!
