31 Biblical Affirmations {I Am…}

In this article, I will be covering the topic of Biblical affirmations. Biblical affirmations are simply agreeing with the Word of God. It is believing what the Most High says about you instead of what you believe about yourself.

Last weekend our family went jeeping. It was a warm sunny day and the doors and top of the jeep were removed. Sunglasses were a must have for this day trip. I cleaned my sunglasses and put them on. Ahhh-relief from the glaring sun. As the sun beat down, sunscreen was applied to every face and set of shoulders in the jeep. Overspray misted my sunglasses. My son handed them back to me with his prints all over them and we were off again.

As the time passed, dusty roads stuck to my lenses. As a result, my view was getting worse and worse because the lenses were filthy with sunscreen, dust and fingerprints. Since it happened slowly over the day, I didn’t realize how tainted my view had become until I took the sunglasses off. I cleaned them before putting them back on. My lenses were completely clear again-how did I let them get so dirty and mess up my beautiful mountain views?

Untrue Affirmations

Our lives are like that as well. Negative self talk, harsh words from others and hard circumstances make it difficult to see ourselves clearly. By clearly, I mean through the lens of Truth. The lens through which we view ourselves has a pretty powerful impact on how we live our lives every single moment of every single day.

Negative self talk, harsh words from others and hard circumstances make it difficult to see ourselves clearly.

We say untrue things to ourselves, like… “I’m not loved”, “I’m not strong”, “I’m not enough”, “I’m not protected”, “I’m not seen” or “I’m all alone”. But, here’s the Truth (straight from the Bible)- God says otherwise. He says, “You are loved”, “You are strong”, “You are enough”, “You are protected”, “You are seen” and “You are never alone”.

When the words we say to ourselves are not based on the words God says about us, we must take those thoughts captive. The way we clean the lens through which we see ourselves requires God’s Word. This is where Biblical affirmations will change your life! Check out the list below for “I am” affirmations from the Bible. Get a free printable of all “31- I Am Affirmations from the Bible”.

      Praise Be to God

      As you read through this list of affirmations– praise be to God! Consequently, all of those statements that the Bible, God’s Word declares over you is because of Christ. Our identity is in Christ, because of Christ and not of ourselves. Knowing who we are- helps us to be bold and brave as we step out in faith and do the things God has entrusted to us; Additionally, it helps us engage in relationships in a healthier way. God is good!

      Wrapping up Biblical Affirmations

      When I meditate on who God says ‘I am’- I sit up straighter, I feel better. The thoughts/beliefs we have about ourselves lead to emotions. Are you feeling badly about yourself? Then your thoughts/beliefs need to be lined up with God’s Truth about who you are.

      If Christians believed who God says they are, they would be the most confident people in the world!

        Thank you for assembling this powerful list.

        Listening to these affirmations at bedtime allows them to be effectively soaked into the subconcious mind where they can work. Can someone please record these? Say each slowly twice plus a silent space for the listener to repeat.

        • Sunshyne on April 30, 2021 at 9:59 am

          Yes! God’s Word is so powerful- I love the idea of recording Scripture and playing back. You could probably do that right into your phone and hit play. Great idea Bruce!

      4. Kenyetta on April 29, 2021 at 9:51 am

        This is very helpful for me I speak affirmations to myself not as much as I should. Thank you for this because I struggle with things of my past and some strongholds in my life. I will mediate on these scriptures.

        • Sunshyne on April 30, 2021 at 10:00 am

          Hi Kenyetta, I think all of us could be more diligent in speaking Truth from God’s Word over our lives-you’re not alone in that! I’m with you-trying to meditate on these Scriptures more and ask God to give us the faith to believe it!

      5. Ellen on April 30, 2021 at 4:03 am

        I appreciate this affirmations so much. They are much needed at this time. I speak negative laanguahe to myself and have the same particularly said repeatedly from my husband in particular. Thank you so much Sunshyne. Ellen

        • Sunshyne on April 30, 2021 at 10:01 am

          Thanks for stopping by, Ellen. Meditating on Scripture (to wash out what people in the world are saying or what we are saying to ourselves that don’t line up with Truth) is how we take thoughts captive!

        I would add: I am a conqueror I Cor. 10:13

        Hi. Just wanted to let someone know the scripture reference for ‘I am blessed’ is listed incorrectly. It says Jer 7:7-8 and should be Jer 17 instead. I am blessed by this listing of truths about who I am. Thank u for posting these. God bless you.

        Hey! I love your resource for affirmations! I was wondering, we are having a little womens coffee group at my church this Saturday with aprox 10 women. I was wondering with your permission may I use your free pdf resource to give them women as a resource. I will be talking about how God sees us and was looking for material when I seen your website. I could make my own for them but yours is so pretty. Its ok if you say no but it was worth a try.

        • Sunshyne Gray on August 16, 2022 at 10:39 pm

          Absolutely, Sarah! So glad to hear it would be helpful- praying for your coffee group…that God would open their eyes to their value in Christ!

          • sarah on August 17, 2022 at 5:57 am

            Thank you so much! And thanks for praying for my coffee group! I too pray that through our time together they can understand Christs love for them!
