Because of who Jesus Christ is, and because He is my Savior and my Lord:
I am a child of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords,
(Rev. 1:8, John 1:12)
seated with Christ in the heavenly realm. I am chosen, accepted,
(Eph. 2:6, I Pet. 2:9)
and included – a citizen of heaven and a member of God’s household.
(John 14:1-6, Eph. 2:19)
I am loved by God unconditionally and without reservation.
(Rom. 5:6-8, I John 4:10)
I belong to Him, having been bought by Him with the
(I Peter 2:9, I Cor. 6:19)
precious blood of Jesus. I have eternal life and will be
(I John 5:11-13, John 3:16)
saved from all of God’s wrath to come – guaranteed!
(Rom. 5:9, Eph. 1:13-14)
I am a Christian. I am not just different in what I do.
(I Peter 4:16)
My identity has changed. Who I am has changed. Everything has
become brand new.
(II Cor. 5:17, Gal. 2:20)
I am a dwelling place in which God lives by His Spirit.
(Eph. 2:22, I Cor. 6:19)
I have access to Him anytime, anywhere, for any reason.
(Eph. 2:18, Phil. 4:6-7)
I am God’s creation – His workmanship. I was created by Him
(Ps. 139, Eph. 2:10)
and for Him, so who I am and what I do matters.
(Col. 1:16, Gal. 6:7-9)
I am spiritually alive. I have been set free from the fear of death
(Rom. 6:8-11, Heb. 2:14-15)
and have been given life to live and enjoy to the full.
I am forgiven – completely, totally, and absolutely.
(I John 1:9, Ps. 103:8-13)
I have been rescued from the dominion of darkness and
brought into the Kingdom of light – the Kingdom of the Son.
I have been set free from the penalty of sin and the power of sin.
(Rom. 6:16-23, Gal. 5:1)
I am an enemy of Satan and at war with spiritual forces of evil, but
(I Peter 5:8, Eph. 6:12)
greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.
(I John 4:4)
If God is for me, it doesn’t matter who or what stands against me,
(Rom. 8:31, Eph. 1:18-23)
because nothing and no one can separate me from the love of Christ –
not hurt, pain, loss, problem, or brokenness;
not persecution, trouble, difficulty, or danger;
not abandonment, abuse, addictions, or appetites;
not desires, food, sexuality, or relationships;
not life or death, angels or demons;
not my past, the present, or the future;
no power, no person, no place, not anything in all creation;
not even Satan himself shall prevail.
I am in the hands of Jesus, in the hands of God, and nothing and
no one can snatch me out of God’s hands.
I will fear no evil because God is with me, and
(Ps. 23:4, II Tim. 1:7)
He has promised to never leave me nor forsake me.
God’s presence is with me everywhere I go –
to the heights of heaven,
through the valley of the shadow,
to the ends of the earth – forever and always.
I am a child of the King and choose this day to live as one.
