3 WAYS TO CRAFT A LASTING AFFIRMATION/CONFESSION THAT YOU REALLY BELIEVE
This conversation was burning in my heart this afternoon as we prayed in our inner circle (The FlexiMum Community-we meet to pray Mondays through Fridays; 4:00 am & 12 noon on Free Conference Call App & YouTube). Just as FlexiMum Henrietta finished leading and I took over to round up, I sensed the Holy Spirit charging me to speak to the underlying fear in HIS children's heart.
"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
HE said HIS children have been making confessions with their mouth, but their heart is far from it- THEY DON'T BELIEVE IT! We prayed about the fear, uprooting it from our hearts- CHECK OUT THE YOUTUBE OR RECORDING HERE and ensure you pray out loud...
THIS IS NUMBER ONE(1) - PRAYER!
NUMBER TWO (2) - WRITE OUT HOW YOU REALLY FEEL: I say this a lot to my mentees, we can't over-emphasize the power of journaling- IT IS TOO IMPORTANT!
The weakest ink is better than the best memory.
Study with a pen in hand
Be a student of your thoughts!
NUMBER THREE (3) - SUPER IMPOSE GOD'S WORDS ON HOW YOU FEEL
This should actually start with finding scriptures that talk about CONQUERING FEAR- CHECK SOME HERE , Then meditate on them, Stand in front of a mirror, declaring it to yourself. Set alarms to keep reminding you of who God sees you as. What these three points do for you is make you the BOSS & AUTHORITY OVER LIFE! You are literally THE PROPHET OF YOUR LIFE! No man has the right to speak ill to your destiny except you permit it.
These three points are a loop- a NEVER-ENDING LOOP! Super-imposing God's words (not just some man-made crafted affirmations; which are also a great place to start) but staying in this loop until God pops out uniquely fitted confessions from your spirit. Then scriptures like
"For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]
~Ephesians 2:10 AMP~
...begin to make sense to you as the Holy Spirit leads you to personalize it.... How do you just feel after personalizing it? On top of the world right???
This doesn't end, REMEMBER IT IS A NEVER-ENDING LOOP! The day you seize to say it, it seizes to become a reality. Until you can effortlessly not feel fear, worry or anxiety (YOU 'VE BECOME ITS MASTER), DO NOT STOP!
Your change is happening from the inside out, your subconscious mind is being renewed and the root of fear is being uprooted.
It looks like today's Affirmation/Confession was addressing fear, but this can be applied to every area of your life, Parenting, Finances, Business, Marriage, etc.
Hope this blog helped you see affirmations/confessions in a different light and that you don't just stay at the level of reading out other people's confessions but you craft yours uniquely as ABBA made for you and to what you're going through.
