Morning Affirmations

Submitting to God

I submit myself and my life to you, O God:

In view of Your mercy, O God, may I present my body as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to You, which is my reasonable service. May I not be conformed to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of my mind, that I may prove that Your will is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:1-2)

Adoration and Thanksgiving

For who You are and what you have done, accept my praise, O Lord:

I will exalt You, my God and King,
I will bless Your name forever and ever.
Every day I will bless You,
And I will praise Your name forever and ever.
Great are You, LORD, and most worthy praised,
Your greatness is unsearchable.
One generation shall praise Your works to another,
And shall declare Your mighty acts.
I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty
And on Your wonderful works.
Many shall speak of the might of Your awesome works,
And I will proclaim of Your great deeds.
I will express the memory of Your abundant goodness
And joyfully sing of Your righteousness.
You O LORD, are gracious and compassionate;
Slow to anger and great in loving kindness.
You are good to all,
And Your tender mercies are over all Your works.(Psalm 145:1-9)

For who You are and what you have done, accept my thanks, O Lord:

Blessed are You, O LORD,
For You have heard the voice of my prayers.

You are my strength and my shield;
My heart trusts in You, and I am helped.
My heart greatly rejoices.
And I will give thanks to You in song.(Psalm 28:6-7)

Examination

Holy spirit, search my heart and reveal to me any unconfessed sin you find in me:

Search me, O God, and know my heart;
Test me and know my anxious thoughts.

See if there is any offensive way in me,
And lead me in the way everlasting.(Psalm 139:23-24)

Lord I thank You for the forgiveness you promised when you said:

“Come now, let us reason together:
Though your sins are like scarlet,
They shall be as white as snow;
Though they are red as crimson,
They shall be like wool.” (Isaiah 1:18)

My Identity in Christ

I rejoice, Lord Jesus, in the identity I have in You.

I have been crucified with You and it is no longer I who live, but You who live in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in You, the Son of God, who loved me, and delivered Yourself up for me. (Galatians 2:20)

I have forgiveness from the penalty of sin because You died for me.

ButYou, O God, demonstrate Your own love for us in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.(Romans 5:8)

I have freedom from the power of sin because I died with You.

In You, O Christ, I was circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, in the removal of the body of the flesh by Your circumcision, having been buried with You in baptism and raised with You through faith in the working of God, who raised You from the dead. (Colossians 2:11-12)

I have fulfillment for this day because You live in me:

I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always You, Jesus Christ, will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. 21For to me, to live in  You, Jesus Christ, means everything and to die is gain. (Philippians 1:20-21)

By faith, I will allow You, O Christ, to manifest Your life through me:

Thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in You and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of You. (2 Corinthians 2:14)

Filling of the Holy Spirit

Holy Spirit, control me and fill me today.

I was once darkness, but now I am light in You, O Lord. May I walk as a child of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), learning what is pleasing to You. (Ephesians 5:18)

As I walk in You, O Spirit, I will not fulfill the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to You, and You, Holy spirit, desire what is contrary to the flesh; for you oppose each other, so that I may not do the things that I wish. But if I am led by You, I am not under the law. (Galatians 5:16)

Since I live in You, Spirit, may I also walk in You. (Galatians 5:25)

Fruit of the Spirit

Holy Spirit, may your Spirit grow in me.

But Your fruit, O Holy Spirit, is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control; against such things, there is no law.

(Galatians 5:19-23)

I want to glorify the Father by bearing much fruit and so prove to be Christ’s disciple. (John 15:8)

Purpose of my Life

O Lord, may your purpose be fulfilled in my life today – to love You completely, to love myself correctly and to love others compassionately.

I will seek first Your kingdom and Your righteousness. (Matthew 6:33)

I want to love You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and with all my soul, and with all my mind, and I want to love my neighbor as myself. (Matthew 22:37. 39)

Lord, the love we have from You is patient, it is kind, it does not envy; love does not boast, it is not arrogant, it does not behave rudely; it does not seek its own, it is not easily provoked, it keeps no records of wrongs; it does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoice with the truth; it bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7).

I will be a witness to those who do not know You, Jesus, and I will participate in Your Great Commission.

I have been called to follow You, Christ Jesus, and to be a fisher of people. (Matthew 4:19)

You have called us to go and make disciples of all nations and You are with us always. (Matthew 28:19-20)

We will be Your witnesses to the ends of the earth. (Acts 1:8)

Circumstances of the Day

I commit my day to You, O Lord.

O God, I know that all things work together for good to those who love You, to those who have been called according to Your purpose. Those who foreknew, You also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of Your Son, that You might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. (Romans 8:28-29)

I will obey You today and trust You for all my needs.

I will trust in You, O lord, with all my heart, and not lean on my own understanding. In all my ways, I will acknowledge You and You will make my paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Protection in Spiritual Warfare

O Lord, guard my heart against  the temptation of the world and renew my heart and spirit.

Since I have been raised up with You, O Christ, I will keep seeking the things above, where You are at the right hand of God. I will set my mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. (Colossians 3:1-2)

I will be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving I will let my requests be made known to You, O God. And Your peace, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-8)

Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good report, if there is any excellence and anything worthy of praise, I will let my mind dwell on these things. (Philippians 4:9)

O Lord, guard my heart against the weaknesses and temptation of the flesh so that I may reckon myself dead to sin:

Father, I know that my old self was crucified with Christ, so that I am no longer a slave to sin, for he who has died is freed from sin. I will reckon myself as dead to sin, but alive to You in Christ Jesus. I will not present the parts of my body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness, but I will present myself to You, O God, as one alive from the dead, and the parts of my body as instruments of righteousness to You. (Romans 6:6-7; 12-13)

O Lord, guard my heart against the attacks of the devil and give me the strength to resist him.

As I submit myself to You, O God, and resist the devil, he will flee from me. (James 4:7)

I will be of sober spirit and on the alert. My adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But I will resist him, firm in my faith. (1 Peter 5:8-9)

I will take up Your full armor, O God, that I may be able to resist and stand firm. I put on the belt of truth and the breastplate of righteousness; I put on my feet the preparation of the gospel of peace; and I take up the shield of faith with which I will be able to extinguish all the flaming missiles of the evil one. I take the helmet of salvation and the sword of Your Spirit, which is Your Word, O God. With all prayer and petition, I will pray at all times in Your Spirit and be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints. (Ephesians 6:13-18)

The Coming of Christ and My Future With Him

Lord Jesus, I eagerly await the day when You will come again.

Your kingdom come, Your will be done. (Matthew 6:10)

You have said, “I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. (Revelation 22:20)

I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to me. (Romans 8:18)..

I will not lose heart, but though my outer self is decaying, yet my inner self is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction is producing for me an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while I look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:16-18).

My citizenship is in heaven, from which also I eagerly wait for You, my Savior, my Lord Jesus Christ. (Philippians 3:20)
