Looking for things to uplift you every day? These biblical affirmations are a great addition to the Christian woman’s daily routine.
Even though I have a hard-wired tendency to side-eye a lot of new agey stuff, there’s one practice that’s kind of grown on me… and that is saying affirmations.
Now, I’m not perfect about it. I often go months on end without actually saying any affirmations at all. But I definitely feel a difference when I do.
Whether or not you believe saying these affirmations can have an impact on your future (the verdict is still out for me), they can undoubtedly change your mindset in the present for the better.
The reason for that is that so many of us speak to ourselves super negatively, even if we’re generally nice to other people.
How many times have you agonized over whether you’re a good enough mom for your kids? A good enough wife for your husband? A good enough person in general?
How many times have you looked for validation from a source other than God, or even outright felt unworthy because of ultimately petty things like the way you look, the number on the scale, or the amount of money in your bank account?
If you’re anything like me… it’s a lot. Maybe a lot more than either of us would really like to admit.
It’s really easy to get discouraged and distracted as we go through life. We have lots of things pulling us in different directions, and a lot of them threatening to pull us away from the ultimate source of validation – the love of God.
That’s why combining the practice of daily affirmations with scriptural truths is so powerful.
Saying biblical affirmations reminds you every day of the truth about who you truly are, and why what you do matters – and that can help you feel more in tune with the One who can help you most in all your struggles.
No matter where you are in your relationship with God right now, these biblical affirmations will absolutely help you in your daily life.
7 Daily Biblical Affirmations For Christian Women
I am loved.
“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.”
1 John 4:16
There are a lot of lists of affirmations that have things like “I love myself”, and I get it. It’s important to feel acceptable to yourself – which I know can be a hard thing at times.
But the best way to feel truly worthy and loveable is knowing that God, who knows every single thing about you (even the things you keep hidden from those closest to you) loves you perfectly anyway.
It might sound cheesy to say it out loud, but it’s important to know this.
Knowing that God loves you is the first step to stop the shame cycle. When you feel ashamed of yourself, your past, or whatever, that’s a weight that can keep you from taking positive steps forward.
I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
God made you – every single part of you. He knows everything from your deepest, darkest secrets to the number of hairs on your head.
He knows your capacity to love. He knows what scares you. He knows what cheers you up and what makes you cry.
He knows all this because he knew you before you were even born.
And he cares about all this, as any loving parent would.
Sometimes it’s easy to get worked up over our shortcomings. It’s easy to shy away from God and feel like we’re not worthy to approach His throne – but that’s not true.
He knows your shortcomings just as well as He knows your strengths. You will never shock, surprise, or disappoint your Father in Heaven, because He is the one who made every part of what makes you, you.
I am in God’s hands.
“Even to your old age and gray hairs, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you”
When you’re in the midst of overwhelming trials, it can be easy to feel like you’re alone – but this scripture is just one example of God’s promise that you are never actually alone.
Even in the darkest of times, you can rely on this promise.
You can take comfort in knowing that even when it seems like all is lost, you still have One who loves, cares for, and will sustain you until your work on earth is finished.
God is working everything for my good.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
There are a lot of times when life just doesn’t feel good.
Whether that’s because of serious issues like an impending divorce or a severely sick or injured child, or because of less serious issues like feeling overwhelmed from trying to make sure your whole family is cared for, things happen that just feel crappy.
It’s important to remember that even in the worst things, God is working things for your good.
It might be especially important to remember in the times when it feels like there’s absolutely no way anything good can come from the current situation.
I’ve been there, and I can tell you – God has come through every time.
This is one of the best daily biblical affirmations because something challenging comes up almost every day… because life isn’t meant to be easy.
It’s meant to challenge and change us – and the best way to get the change God wants out of us is to trust Him and seek Him through it all.
You can make this biblical affirmation even more personal (and powerful!) by replacing “everything” with the exact thing you need God to work for your good.
- God is working losing my job for my good.
- God is working my miscarriage for my good.
- God is working this crappy day for my good.
Try it out, see how it feels. Putting these things boldly into God’s hands is a powerful feeling!
I am not worried – God will provide what I need.
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”
How often do you wish you had more?
Maybe you wish you could afford a bigger house for your family, or that you had the budget for a vacation somewhere nice and sunny.
Maybe you yearn for a certain item that’s just for you, but is way out of your price range.
Maybe you’re on a super tight budget and just wish you could guilt-freely get takeout or haircuts more often.
Whatever the situation, it’s understandable.
Again, we live in a day and age where there is so much information coming at us atr all times. There are so many advertisements and promises that if we just buy that one thing, we’d be happy.
That’s why it’s important to really consider what God does to take care of us.
When you trust that God has provided and will continue to provide what you need most, you can relax. You don’t have to rely on your own limited strength and knowledge, but can trust that God knows all and sees all and will be there for you.
Does that mean you’ll end up in a mansion with all the trappings? No. Almost certainly not.
But it does mean that if you continue to cling to Him, He will not let you down.
The other benefit of including this in your biblical affirmations is that this mindset helps put you in a position to be more grateful for the things you have, because you’ll realize what is really a “need” and what is just a “want.”
Being grateful is definitely a big part of being happy, now and in the future – no matter what comes.
I am laying up treasures in Heaven.
“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
(Side note: Matthew 6 is an especially great chapter to read in full! You can read it here.)
Walking through this life is not easy, especially as a Christian woman in this day and age.
When you scroll through social media, especially as a police wife, it’s really easy to understand why Jesus warned us that we would be hated by the world.
The disdain for traditional Christian values seems to get stronger every day – and as a result, anyone who follows Christ is similarly mocked and torn down.
That’s why it’s so important to remember that there is more than this life. That there is much more than just what we can see.
Remind yourself daily to not take the things of this world so seriously, because you are ultimately seeking for those of a better.
Does it mean this world means nothing? Of course not.
The decisions you make have an impact. The things that hurt, still really hurt.
But when you put them into a more eternal perspective through biblical affirmations and try to lean on God’s understanding over your own, the burden of these things can be made a lot lighter.
I don’t have to lean on my own understanding.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight”
Every day brings with it a lot of decisions we need to make.
- How do I discipline my child when he did (insert bad behavior here)?
- How do I approach my husband about (some issue you’re having)?
- Should I go back to work after having a baby or should I be a stay-at-home mom?
- What do I do about our car that broke down?
- How do I spend our money wisely after a decrease in pay?
Even when your decisions are less far reaching (what do I make for dinner?), the sheer number of decisions to make can be overwhelming.
That’s why it’s so great to remember that the Lord can direct you in everything – even things you might think are too small to pray about.
After all, you’re talking about a God who knows even the number of hairs on your head. No detail about your life is too small for Him to care about.
I definitely have room for improvement in this area, being the natural control freak that I am – but whenever I commit more fully to putting things in God’s hands (and use biblical affirmations to remind myself of this commitment), I find that I make better use of my time and feel more accomplished at the end of each day.
These biblical affirmations can make you so much happier, help you have a more optimistic attitude, and overall make you a better wife, mother, and woman.
