Affirmation action is the ability to do what you think. Motivational affirmation is the inspiration or the catalyst for change.
The question really is: Do you want to change?
Today I can guarantee results!
You Can Put These Christian Positive Affirmations to Work TODAY:
1. Today I intend to participate, to take part in, to share in the divine nature of God. I will be open to His thoughts and blessings.
His divine Power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of Him, who called us by His own glory and goodness. Through these, He has given us His very great and precious Promises, so that through them, you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. 2 Peter 1:3-4 NIV
Encouragement from Elaine: Dear Christian Something Sister, did you ever hear that YOU and I can actually participate in the divine nature of God, and God will give us the power to do it? That is exactly what it says in 2 Peter 1:3-4. God's Power! The resources come from Him, not me. God's Divine Nature! MINE! Believe it and memorize it and live it -- you can kiss guilt goodbye.
2. Today I realize that I am weak, but God is Strong, and God's Holy Spirit empowers me now and all through this day.
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7 NIV
Encouragement from Elaine: This is exactly what reinforces Affirmation Number One. God's Holy Spirit is available all day, every day, to provide the power we need. Think about this: we need not be intimidated. As Christians, we have Holy Spirit power to help us overcome our fears, anxieties, worries and problems. You know already, we are going to have problems, BUT the Holy Spirit of God helps us to overcome our weaknesses.
3. Today I am going to be cheerful, kind loving, and forgiving even if I don't feel like it because the Holy Spirit of God lives in me,
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. There is no law against these things! Galatians 5:22-23 NLT
Encouragement from Elaine: I may not feel like being loving or showing joy, but if I go ahead and do it anyway, my feelings do become more loving and joyful.
Let me give you my real life example of Christian Tools of Affirmation in practice:
After our son died, I did not feel like doing anything. Just getting dressed and going to Kennelly Hallmark Shop, which Tom and I owned at the time, was all I could do. BUT when I was on the selling floor, as I called it, I had to be smiling, talking with customers, cheerful with staff and just all-around NICE.
Did I feel like NICE ---NO! But did I do it---YES! And here is what happened: my actions changed my feelings. That is why I am so determined to share my Christian Tools of Affirmation with you.
