bible affirm post


You’ve probably heard this before, Joel Osteen says it every week. He got it from his dad.

This is my Bible.
I am what it says I am.
I can do what it says I can do.
Today, I will be taught the Word of God. I boldly confess:
My mind is alert, My heart is receptive.
I will never be the same.
I am about to receive
The incorruptible, indestructible, Ever-living seed of the Word of God.
I will never be the same .
Never, never, never.
I will never be the same.
In Jesus name. Amen.

My Pastor has done this a few times and I find it effective as far as it increases faith and you hear yourself declaring dedication to the scriptures.

I was listening to a podcast this morning with Cameron Cole and the conversation inspired me to come up wth my own declaration. I am still tweaking it but you are welcome to steal it or offer suggestions. It’s easy to make something like this too long but I thing I have the right length.

This is my Bible

It reveals who God is.

Who I am in Christ

and why I am here.

It shares the good news,

That Christ died for sinners,

We all need a Savior,

and that I am saved by grace through faith and not by performance.

It shows me the way to live and the way to love.

It tells the the story of redemption from Genesis to Revelation

That God is good.

People are flawed.

and I have power, though the Holy Spirit, to follow Jesus every day.

I came up with this because I’ll be teaching a series soon on the Bible and why we need it.

Do you have a Bible affirmation for teens?

If not, do they need one? Why or why not?
