Affirmations are positive confessions of what you want in your life or simply put, they are confessions of faith. It is important that our words in the New Year marches our faith of what we are expecting from God. More often than not, your confession becomes your possession and that is why it is important to make positive confessions. It is advised that if you do not have any positive thing to say, just don’t talk at all because your words are powerful. The best way to put affirmations to work is to make them in sentences as though they are already true. Remember that faith is calling the things that are not as though they were (Romans 4:17). Now, let’s take a walk through the Bible for affirmations for the year.

If you are very observant, I have picked affirmations from all twenty seven (27) books of the New Testament of the Bible. Repeating them every day of the Year will help you build your faith and have a better outlook to life. Your repetition of these affirmations registers in your subconscious mind the “I Can” attitude which is of huge importance in life.
How do you use affirmations?
Though there are no hard and fast rules about how to use affirmations, there are certain practices that have proven helpful in the past and they include:
- Repeat the words as many times as possible during the day.
- Write them out boldly and paste them in strategic corners where you can see them often.
- Dedicate at least 10 minutes in the morning and at night to say these words.
- Decide never to say anything negative and whenever you are tempted to or you find yourself doing so, quickly reverse and say positive things.
- Say the sentences out and loud. Let others hear, if possible. When people are aware of your affirmations, they sometimes become your reminder when you are straying off into negative confession. They remind you of what you have previously confessed to their hearing and that serves as a guide for you.
- Be consistent and committed to it. Affirmations do not sometimes work automatically. They require some time for them to give you the feeling you want. Faith does not mean you will get everything you want immediately, it means that you believe that God is able to give you everything you want and He will give them to you at the appropriate time. Abraham had faith but still had to wait for a hundred years before he had Isaac. In essence, affirmations also require you to be consistent. It should not be what you do once in a long while.
