When I first started my health journey, it began with a Bible Study called Revelation Wellness. While I was waiting for my book to arrive, I decided to go check out the Revelation Wellness website, and I noticed there were several FREE resources! So, I clicked on the FREE download for Declaring the Truth of Your God-Given Identity. This began a transformation in my mind and heart which is where I really needed the work to take place! Over the next several weeks, I will share with you these truths that transformed my mind and heart and impacted my health journey in the most needed way!
I made each affirmation/truth into a Bible Study using the Scriptures given for each one, then I would journal about what each meant to me and how the truths spoke into my life. Then, the next day, I’d move to the next truth. Today, I will cover the first seven.
I AM A CHOSEN CHILD OF GOD.
(Deuteronomy 30:1-8, Luke 15, 1 Peter 2:9-10)
God has chose me to live an abundant life! He has pulled me out of darkness, sought after me, and brought me into His abundant light – full of compassion and unconditional love. I am completely His. He wants to bless me abundantly.
I DO NOT LET PERSECUTION PERSUADE ME TO FEAR.
(Psalm 23:4, Romans 8:35-39, James 1:2-3)
When I feel stuck, broken, distracted, or down I should remember how great the Lord’s compassion and love are for me. No matter how bad things are or get, He is with me. In fact, I should be joyful when facing trials because He is building in me perseverance. Fear is a liar, and Satan’s attempt to remove Christ’s joy in me.
I AM COVERED BY THE ARMOR OF LOVE.
(2 Samuel 22:1-4, Psalm 18, Ephesians 6:10-17)
He loves and protects me from evil, harm, attacks from the enemy and more. He places me in a shelter of peace and comfort. His love is full of empathy, compassion, and understanding for the struggles I face. It is unconditional and He freely offers His help. He gives me protection in every way. He makes me a light in dark places.
I BRING WEALTH AND RESOURCES INTO ALL CIRCUMSTANCES AND NEEDS.
(Exodus 36:2-7, Luke 7:36-50, Mark 8:1-10)
All I have to do is give what I do have freely; give of my gifts, talents, and resources; give out of my blessed abundance. He will use my gift for what it’s meant for. I must give with a humble heart, out of my great love for Jesus. My attitude behind the giving must be humble, not prideful, or to look good to others.
I AM A PURVEYOR OF CONTAGIOUS HOPE.
(I Thessalonians 5:9-15, Hebrews 10:24-25, Proverbs 12:25)
So many are hurting and broken, fearful or anxious. I can bring hope by being an encourager, smiling, being kind, empathizing and sharing my heart, and God’s truth. I can be a friend that cares, holds accountable, yet loves unconditionally. I can accept the weak, and give them hope to become better in Christ.
I AM NOT ALONE. I AM SURROUNDED BY A GREAT CLOUD OF WITNESSES.
(Hebrews 12:1, Ephesians 2:19-22)
I must throw off all that hinders me, and the sin that easily entangles. I must break the strongholds through His Spirit, then run with perseverance toward the calling He has placed on my life. Because believers have Jesus in common, I am united with them. I am built on a strong foundation of discipleship and accountability. Jesus within me is my cornerstone. He is helping me to rise into His holiness.
I FREELY LOVE WITHOUT EXPECTATIONS OF LOVE BEING RETURNED TO ME BY MAN.
(Luke 6:27-36, James 2:15-16, Proverbs 11:25)
I struggle with feeling loved, so often I fear loving because I don’t want to be rejected. However, Jesus has called me to love, even if it’s not returned. To be kind, to go the extra mile, to make sure they know love is genuine. Your love is REAL! If I don’t give, what is the purpose? When I refresh others, I will be refreshed. So, help me, Lord, to be generous!
Renewing my heart and mind was the first and most important step to truly becoming healthy. It’s so true that our mind, spirit, and body is all connected! When I started to believe these truths, truths I’ve known my whole life, but that I didn’t fully accept or embrace, that’s when my body began to change. And, this time it’s not for me, or for others that I’m getting healthy, but because I love Jesus and want to live out His plan and purpose for my life. The stronghold of food addiction has kept me from living my best and most abundant life, and the Lord is redeeming those lost days and years that the locusts have stolen! Praise Him!
I hope this has been an encouragement and help to you! Let me know if it has in the comments!
