I Am Powerful


A few weeks ago I was exposed to a declaration at one of my weekly Bible studies I participate in.  I decided to do an experiment in positive affirmations and their effect on our lives.  I kept this with me and I read through it 3 times each day for a whole week.  I read it when I first got up in the morning, again over my lunch break, and finally again at night before I went to bed.  I would follow reading it with about a 2-3 minute prayer to God thinking about the things I had just read.  I can tell you that the effect was very powerful for me.  My attitude that week was more positive than normal and I felt more empowered than I had in quite some time.

I would like to share with you this positive affirmation.  This was written by someone in the children’s ministry at Bethel Church in Reading, CA.  This declaration was designed for the children in their church to help call out the powerful potential within each of them.

Obviously, this is not just for children.  We all have powerful potential within each of us.  Kids have the same Holy Spirit inside of them that we do.  I think we need to do a better job of tapping into that power on a daily basis.  We need to live out this power in our daily lives.  But first we have to believe it.  I’m not talking about simply agreeing with it in our minds, but about living like we believe it.  We need to read this declaration, believe it, and live it.

I want each of you to commit to copying this down and reading it at least once each day for a whole week.  At the end of that week, ask yourself if you felt more empowered or more positive during that week.  Please comment back to this post after you have completed this little experiment and let us all know how it went for you.  What did you learn from this experience?

Here is the declaration:

I am powerful, and what I believe changes the world! 

So today I declare:

God is in a good mood.

He loves me all the time.

Nothing can separate me from His love.

Jesus’ blood paid for everything.

I will tell nations of what He has done.

I am important.

How He made me is amazing.

I was designed for worship.

My mouth establishes praise to silence the enemy.

Everywhere I go becomes a perfect health zone.

And with God, nothing is impossible!

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
