The definition of affirmation is “the action or process of affirming something or being affirmed. Giving emotional support or encouragement.” When we affirm something we are saying it is so. There can be both positive and negative affirmations; they will both have an impact upon our life, way of thinking and attitude.
Biblical Affirmations are more than just a positive attitude or a bright outlook on life and circumstances, they are golden, priceless nuggets of truth and light directly from and based upon the Word of God that we can build a solid foundation upon, sink our spiritual teeth into, nourish our heart and soul with, affirm our identity and future through.
At times we just need to be reminded who we are, that the Lord is with us, that he is for us, that we can do it, we can make it. Sometimes the enemy has come at us hard and fast and we are on the verge of giving up or feeling defeated or ganged up on. Sometimes we just need to hear God to remind us who we are and how we have worth and value. God loves us, unconditionally and for always and he wants us to enjoy and be empowered by his truths and promises he has spoken over us since before the beginning of time. When you visit this page you will not only be refreshed, encouraged and uplifted, but you will be reminded of your true identity and the powerful promises of God over you. Visit it often, share with with others. Let the Lord comfort, guide, strengthen, and encourage you any time of the day or night.
