Gods word tells me, I am created in His image....and I accept that.

I feel led by the Lord, to write about the words that we speak.  And, how we look at ourselves, and others, by the words that we express in communicating.  The Bible tells us that we have power of life and death in our tongues.  Proverbs 18:21 states:  Death and life are in the power of the tongue; and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof:  So that tells me we have a strong weapon to either use for us, or against us.  And if the words we speak are so strong, that they can reflect life or death in situations, we really need to be careful about the words we speak.  This is a principle, established from God.  God wants us to learn to speak his word. To “affirm” who you are in Christ.  And to be mindful, of this principle, from this scripture.  Have you ever heard people who speak against themselves, or others, and then they wonder why they do not have blessings or achieve happiness?  Or even any kind of success.  Some may have been told since they were children, your stupid, your ugly, you cannot accomplish this or that, and so, this has been ingrained into a persons spirit, heart, and mind.  But there is a remedy and a hope to defeat this.  This can be broken off of someone, by the word of God.  Words that are not spoken in love, or that are negative, like this, can break a heart, and cause someone to not have any self esteem.  They damage a person, and can echo over and over again.  They are curses and not blessings.  God does not want any one to feel broken by someone’s words, that have been spoken, or by someone, who does not know to speak words of life.  And so, I feel led, by the Holy spirit, to begin, speaking “The Lord’s Affirmations.” Words from God.  That are his promises.  And adding them to my “Prayers of Hope Devotionals”, and to my commentaries, “Just My Thoughts.” So to make it short and sweet, todays scripture affirmation is from Genesis 1:27:

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him, male and female created he them. And God blessed them…….

A Prayer of Hope:

Father, with my spiritual eyes opened, I affirm and see that you are my Lord, my God, and that I am created in your image.  No matter what anybody may say, or speak against me, I cancel those words that have hurt me.  Father, and I myself, speak life over me, according to your word.  Lord, teach me to speak words of life, to speak carefully, even with a guard over my tongue, over others and myself, even stopping my words, if they are negative, or do not display who I really am.  For I am created in your image.  The beauty of it, is now reflected in my soul, spirit, and body.  I realize, that every promise you have made according to your word, I have access to, speak, and claim, because I see myself now created in your image.  It opens a door for such an understanding that is not beyond me.  WOW! Lord, I thank you for blessing me, for I now know, I am created in your image. And I thank you for blessing me. In Jesus name,  Amen

I hope you will look forward to seeing more of these affirmations, and they will bless your life. Please share a word, or comment, and tell me, how this affects you.

  1. Great message Elena…plus James 1:19 says “Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry.” Yes slow to speak is a good thing:-)!
