I created the confessions below, some people call them affirmations, way back in 2007. Taking a verse and writing it in First Person. If you have read much about me here, you know I believe that our words are extremely powerful and will dictate what our lives look like. So we really have to watch our mouths. And I am certainly preaching to myself here as well as anyone else who wants to listen :)
They cover a few important subjects to me: health, marriage, children, and basic life. Maybe pick some that resonate for you, copy them to your own word document, or look up the verse and change it a bit to better reflect you, print them out, post them somewhere and start speaking God’s words over yourself and your household.

I stand firm. I have tightened the belt of truth around my waist and have put on the breastplate of integrity, moral rectitude, and right standing with God. I have shod my feet in preparation to face the enemy with firm footed stability, promptness and readiness that comes from the Gospel of Peace.
