Believe it or not, the first book that inspired my journey towards a relationship with God was “The Secret”. I found this law of attraction so fascinating! Selfishly at first, I began to declare all of these material things into my life, and it worked!
As I began to spread the excitement of my findings with friends, one took me aside and said the words that would profoundly change the course of my life forever: “Alex, the law of attraction has some positive aspects, just make sure you know who you’re asking of these things. Give credit to where credit is due. God is this “universe” the book speaks of, and Jesus is the one we ask through.”
That’s where my journey of knowing God and Jesus more began.
So many qualities of God I love, but one of my favorites is His want and desire to give us everything we ask for under His will. He’s a good, good father. Don’t you also desire to give your children (most of) what they ask for?
And one of the ways we communicate in prayer and meditation is by speaking the truth about ourselves…affirmations.
The dictionary says an affirmation is "the action or process of affirming something or being affirmed."
For example, when I repeat a Bible verse that speaks the truth about me personally, I'm affirming that into my life so I begin to live by that new thought.
While some may say it is akin to “fake it until you make it,” I see it a bit more like holding the vision of what I know is and can be true.
Mark 11:22-24 says:
"And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."
Tips for Successful Application
These are declarations I make almost every morning, OUTLOUD to myself.
I have them saved on a Google Doc so I can always edit them. The Google Doc is hyperlinked on my phone’s desktop so I can access it every morning. Finally, I have a calendar reminder set for 8 am every day to open the file and read out the affirmations.
