Speaking biblical truths is important for Christians for the following reasons:
It confesses and proclaims God’s truth in your life.
It helps you to stay synced with that truth.
It helps you renew your mind.
It gets you into position against the devil.
If you do not understand a particular truth, don’t be afraid to seek to understand what it means!
Here are some truths to realize and declare in your life:
I am the body of Christ. My body is the house of God. God lives in me and I belong to him. I’ve been bought with the price of the blood of Jesus, so I glorify God in my body and in my spirit – 1 Corinthians 6:15-19; 2 Corinthians 6:16, 3:16.
Satan has no power over me. I have been delivered from the power of darkness and translated into the Kingdom of God’s dear Son – Colossians 1:13.
Therefore sin has no power over me – Romans 6:14.
I separate myself from every unclean thing – 2 Corinthians 6:17.
I submit myself to God. I resist the devil and he flees from me – James 4:7.
I give no place or no opportunity to the devil – Ephesians 4:27.
I choose the fear of the Lord, which is to hate evil, pride, arrogance, the evil way, and the disobedient mouth – Proverbs 8:13.
I consider Jesus and His presence in me – Hebrews 12:3.
I love God more than anything this world offers – Mark 12:30.
I present my body as a living sacrifice to God – holy, devoted, and consecrated to please Him, which is a part of my spiritual worship to Him. I am not conformed to this world’s way of thinking, but I am continually being transformed by the renewing of my mind to His Word so that I can prove what is the good, the acceptable, and the perfect will of God in my life – Romans 12:1,2.
I have the mind of Christ – 1 Corinthians 2:16.
Jesus said, “The prince of the world comes, but he has nothing in Me.” Just like Jesus, I decree that Satan has nothing in me – John 14:30.
I cast down imaginations and every thought that tries to exalt itself against the knowledge of God. I bring my thoughts into captivity to the obedience of Christ and His Word – having a ready mind to revenge all disobedience – 2 Corinthians 10:4,5.
I think on things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report. If there be any virtue or praise, I think on these things – Philippians 4:8.
In righteousness I am established. I am far from oppression. I do not fear. I am far from terror. It will not come near me – Isaiah 54:14.
Thy Word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against thee – Psalm 119:11.
If I sin, You said if I confess and repent of my sin, You are faithful and just to forgive me of it and to cleanse me from all unrighteousness – 1 John 1:9.
No weapon formed against me shall prosper and every tongue that rises against me is condemned or shown to be wrong and stopped. This is the heritage God has given me as a servant of the Lord and my righteousness is of Him – Isaiah 54:17.
Like Jesus, I love righteousness and I hate iniquity; therefore God anoints me with the oil of gladness – Hebrews 1:9.
Lord, you said there is no temptation that has come to me or that can come to me that is not common to man, nothing that is beyond human resistance. You are faithful to your Word and to your love for me, and you will not allow me to be tempted beyond my strength to resist and you will provide a way out or a way of escape so I will be strong against it – 1 Corinthians 10:13.
I am of God and I have overcome every anti-Christ spirit because greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world – 1 John 4:4.
This is the victory that causes me to overcome in this world – my faith in Jesus and in His Word – 1 John 5:4,5.
I live and walk by faith and not by sight or feelings – 2 Corinthians 5:7.
I live by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God – Matthew 4:4.
I let the Word of Christ dwell in me richly in all wisdom – Colossians 3:16.
The spirit of faith is, I believe and therefore I speak – 2 Corinthians 4:13.
I overcome the devil by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of my testimony, not loving my life unto the death – Revelation 12:11.
I shall live and not die to declare the works of the Lord in this earth – Psalm 118:17.
All things are working together for good in my life because I love God and I am called according to His purpose – Romans 8:28.
Thanks be to God who gives me the victory through my Lord Jesus Christ. He always causes me to triumph – 1 Corinthians 15:57; 2 Corinthians 2:14.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me – Philippians 4:13.
Remember, declarations are powerful, but declarations are not simply spoken. Rather, a declaration is made consciously in agreement within the heart. From your heart, proclaim the truth out loud, boldly, and often!
