I am an overcomer by the blood of the Lamb and the word of my testimony. The words of my mouth will be pleasing to The Lord.

I reign because I am made perfect in Him through His sacrifice on the Cross. I am indeed the goodness of God and His beloved.
“For if because of one man’s trespass lapse, offense death reigned through that one, much more surely will those who receive God’s overflowing grace unmerited favor and the free gift of righteousness putting them into right standing with Himself reign as kings in life through the one Man Jesus Christ the Messiah, the Anointed One.” – Romans 5: 17

I walk under the open heaven and wherever I enter I bring about a positive change. My words are gracious, and are seasoned with salt, which will make others around me, thirst more for the Saviour of World.

To every challenge that comes my way, I shout with boldness, “I am a winner in Christ”.

There is a great work that God began in me from the day I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. He is faithful to bring that to completion. Even when I do not see anything happening; God is always up to something. The calling of my life will be fulfilled, because that is His purpose and His purposes will always prevail.

Jesus said I am the salt of the earth, and certainly I am what He says. I add flavors of Joy, Peace and Hope to peoples’ lives. I preserve the needy in my prayers from every plan and work of the enemy. This is what God has called me to do with His help. I will guard my heart from the issues of life, and am focused on Him. I will extend the freshness of His love, grace and mercy.

If I, being a mere human, knows and takes delight in giving good gifts of any kind, to the people I love with all my heart; how much more God who just cannot get me out of His mind? In Christ, I am blessed with goodness that leads me closer to His heart. The greatest title, that none in this world can offer is what He has given me, “His Beloved Child”. God revels to bless me with anything that helps me grow and prosper, emotionally, mentally and physically. He desires superabundance in my life and He is faithful to bless me in every realm.
“Think of it this way: if your son asked you for bread, would you give him a stone? Of course not— you would give him a loaf of bread. 10 If your son asked for a fish, would you give him a snake? No, to be sure, you would give him a fish—the best fish you could find” – Matthew 7: 9
A Father’s Heart is much more than comprehension – Prodigal Love!
Sin does not define me, grace does. I am dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus. Jesus alone is the superior authority over my life. His grace empowers me to overcome evil. Righteousness is my portion, because of Jesus’ death and resurrection. Every second of my life, I surrender to His guidance.

I am given the power to walk over the vice of the enemy and to trample them under my feet. In Christ, I can’t be harmed; neither through sickness, nor circumstances initiated by the evil one. No storm can shake me; because the One whom the winds and waves obey journeys with me. Every time I exercise my authority in Christ, Satan falls like a lightning bolt.

In Christ I am created to create beauty, I am designed to design newness; and I am redeemed, restored and made whole to be a problem solver. I am handpicked to be a person of influence. I am called to excel and rule over all what He has placed for me to govern. I am filled with His wisdom to bring results to anything that seems impossible. Abiding in Christ, I will bear fruits that impact eternity.
“So God did just that. He created humanity in His image, created them male and female. Then God blessed them and gave them this directive: “Be fruitful and multiply. Populate the earth.

Because I am His temple, no guile will reign in here.

“Or didn’t you realize that your body is a sacred place, the place of the Holy Spirit? Don’t you see that you can’t live however you please, squandering what God paid such a high price for? The physical part of you is not some piece of property belonging to the spiritual part of you. God owns the whole works. So let people see God in and through your body” – 1 Corinthians 6: 19-20.
I am God’s responsibility. He knows the best for my life and will direct me in ways marvelously destined. He made a great story of my life even before one day of it came to pass. Since He alone shaped me with grace, I will recklessly rely on Him. I am divinely beautiful. I reflect the gorgeousness of Heaven, for His very hands shaped me.

No matter what anyone thinks of me, or says or does to me, I am carved in excellence and meant for great exploits.
“You are a stunning crown in the palm of God’s hand, a jeweled gold cup held high in the hand of your God” – Isaiah 62: 3
I will not heed to or accept accusations of the enemy towards me. Any blame thrown at me, when I submit to the ruler-ship of Christ, will be turned around to work in favor of me. I will not be fearful to any defeat for He is my vindicator. I will have justice against every courtroom ‘lie’ because of the blood of Jesus. I move ahead with truthfulness, boldness and confidence in my Comforter. No circumstances orchestrated by the evil one will overtake me. I will not hold onto “self-defense”, for no weapon fashioned against me will prosper.
“But no instrument formed against you will be allowed to hurt you, and no voice raised to condemn you will successfully prosecute you. It’s that simple; this is how it will be for the servants of the Eternal; I will vindicate them.” – Isaiah 54: 17
I am one with the Father because Jesus is One with Him. Whoever looks at me will experience the Father and the Son in every manner. I am also called to be One with my fellow brothers and sisters in faith. I will keep reminding myself that I am forgiven and loved unconditionally; and choose the same toward my siblings in Christ. I will not go into a state of rivalry with anyone; for if I do, I join with the enemy. Therefore, I choose His love, above every differences of opinion. Grace enables me to be in one-accord with the Body of Christ.
“All the glory You have given to Me, I pass on to them. May that glory unify them and make them one as We are one” – John 17: 22
I am a slave to the righteousness of God – Pure, Holy, Sanctified and Justified. I am no longer a slave to the old nature that had enmity to the Goodness of God. My holiness will be displayed for the kindness that I show towards anyone. I am a recipient of a splendid eternity with my Maker.
“And now you are free from your old master, sin; and you have become slaves to your new master, righteousness. But now you are free from the power of sin and are children of God, and his benefits to you include holiness and everlasting life” – Romans 6: 18
I am a Child of the light and darkness has no ownership over me. I will be prepared to receive the day of the Lord and it will not be a surprise to me. Any darkness that delays my process of transformation will be exposed in the light. I am called to be the Light of the World, and a city on hill; and I will keep on letting the light of Jesus shine through me.
“My brothers and sisters, it will be different for you. You do not dwell in the darkness, so that day will not surprise you like a thief. For you are all children of light. You are sons and daughters of the day. We are not created of night, nor are we owned by darkness” – 1 Thessalonians 5: 4
I will not be proud, for when I am humble His strong hands lift me up. In my humbleness I will understand how much He cares for me, and will be able to let HIM carry all my burdens and worries. When I am proud, I fail to understand what God can do through me and for me. My pride leads me to unbelief; but in humility I can surrender and let God take control of every detail of my life.
“So bow down under God’s strong hand; then when the time comes, God will lift you up. Since
God cares for you, let Him carry all your burdens and worries” – 1 Peter 5:6
I will be filled with an intense desire of knowing Jesus more and more. In Christ, I will be filled with an understanding- I, totally and wholly belong to Him. When He reveals Himself to me, there is nothing in this world that can be as important and significant in my life as Him – my Saviour, Redeemer and Lord.
“I will give them a new, intense desire to know Me because I am the Eternal One. They will be My people, and I will be their God because they will return to Me completely” – Jeremiah 24: 7
I will not be tested beyond my point of endurance. Because He is faithful, even in my faith-less-ness, He will show me how to escape temptation’s power so that I can bear up patiently against it. The temptations I face aren’t new; they have been faced by my brothers and sisters in faith who have overcome the same. If grace enabled them to overcome, I too will overcome by the blood of Jesus.
“Any temptation you face will be nothing new. But God is faithful, and He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can handle. But He always provides a way of escape so that you will be able to endure and keep moving forward.”
I am made by the Spirit of God and I am a supernatural being. The breath of God’s goodness and grace brings life to all the dryness in my being. There is abundance of Peace, Joy and Righteousness in me; and that is flowing out to all I meet.
“God’s Spirit has fashioned me and the breath of the Highest One imparts life to me” – Job 33: 4
I am His bride and I will rest in His love for me. He will joyfully sing over me, like a new husband. He will quiet my Spirit with His songs and will choose to remember my sins no more. My deep wounds are being healed and I am being made whole. All of my reproach and anxieties will be taken away; and He will crush all my fears.
“For the Lord your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty Saviour. He will give you victory. He will rejoice over you with great gladness; he will love you and not accuse you.” Is that a joyous choir I hear? No, it is the Lord himself exulting over you in happy song. “I have gathered your wounded and taken away your reproach” – Zephaniah 3: 17
I am not a slave to God, following the old pattern of the Law. I am pulled out from the bondages of fear, and separation from God. By accepting Jesus as my Lord and Saviour, I have been restored to the relationship with God that I was created for. And now, I am a CHILD OF GOD. He is my Father and my identity is strengthened in believing and living all the days of my life as His Precious Child. Because, He is my Father, just like the way He ran to the prodigal Son, He will run to me and take me in His arms. He doesn’t treat me according to what I deserve, but to what I need – Extraordinary Grace. The moment I cry out, “Abba, Father”, He takes responsibility of my inability to move forward. He is my pillar of fire by night, and my pillar of cloud in my heated weariness.
“You see, you have not received a spirit that returns you to slavery, so you have nothing to fear. The Spirit you have received adopts you and welcomes you into God’s own family, as a child of God. That’s why we call out to Him, “Abba! Father!” as we would address a loving daddy” – Romans 8: 15
I will never again say, “No one understands me”. I am known completely; in detail, of the things I have missed out for myself; by Him who hold this Universe stable. He is concerned of the minute happenings of my life. He applauds me when I do the simplest of good. He backs me up when I stumble and holds me steady in His love. I will not trade for hurts that arise from misunderstandings. Let every vein of mine, sink into this truth.
“O Eternal One, You have explored my heart and know exactly who I am; You even know the small details like when I take a seat and when I stand up again. Even when I am far away, You know what I’m thinking. You observe my wanderings and my sleeping, my waking and my dreaming, and You know everything I do in more detail than even I know. You know what I’m going to say long before I say it. It is true, Eternal One, that You know everything and everyone. You have surrounded me on every side, behind me and before me, and You have placed Your hand gently on my shoulder. It is the most amazing feeling to know how deeply you know me, inside and out; the realization of it is so great that I cannot comprehend it” – Psalm 139: 1-6
Jesus is my shield, my glory and my unfailing hope. My head will never bow down in shame for He alone is the lifter of my head. Shame doesn’t live in the temple of God. I reject it, and receive the acceptance and approval of Jesus over my life.
“But Lord, you are my shield, my glory, and my only hope. You alone are the lifter of my head” – Psalm 3: 3
I am healed from every diseases, allergies and infirmities. By His wounds, illness has no room in my being. My mind, emotions and body are healthy and sound because Jesus took the incompleteness all on the Cross of Calvary. Deep wounds of my past that has crushed my soul, but I am is being healed totally by His Stripes. I receive the wholeness of the Holy Spirit into my human spirit.
“He took on our sins in His body when He died on the cross so that we, being dead to sin, can live for righteousness. As the Scripture says, “Through His wounds, you were healed” – 1Peter 2: 24
I am carried in His arms and He never cease to care for me in any of my wilderness moments. In moments of confusion and lack of clarity, like a Father, He will hold my hand and walk with me. I can cast all my cares on Him for He will take it all, and give me His peace beyond understanding.
“And you know how he has cared for you again and again here in the wilderness, just as a father cares for his child!’” – Deuteronomy 1: 31
I will not be shaken because my constant focus is on Christ the Rock of Ages. He stands beside me and holds my hand tight. Even though the storms are fierce and battles are too much, the God who calms them all, whispers to me, “It is taken care of, my child, because I said on the Cross, IT IS FINISHED!” In Him I am covered with divine protection.
“He is ever present with me; at all times He goes before me. I will not be shaken or abandon my calling because He stands at my right hand” – Psalm 16: 8
In Christ, I will see increase in my finances as my soul prospers in the revelation of The Lord. I will have in plenty even to bless strangers and the needy. Bountiful riches, like Abraham, my generation and I, will see.

Because His covenant of Peace is established, the storms will be still, the lost will be restored, new doors will be opened, there will be an increase and prosperity of my soul and possession. Every good thing I don’t deserve will follow me and the divine nature of God will wrap me.

My old self is dead. The only enemy to stop me from doing the things of God, was my nature that had enmity toward God. The life I now have I have been made new. The desires for all that I once had, the pleasures I once indulged in, the cravings toward all this world offered and the choice to repeatedly choose wrong is now buried. Behold, the Life of Goodness of Jesus Christ is what I live now.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ Jesus, that person is a new creation. The old life is gone—and see—a new life has begun!” – 2 Corinthians 5: 17
In Christ, I am endowed with the strength and might of God. Tiredness will only remind me to rest in the Lord and draw from His presence. Otherwise, no task or work can weaken me. I am called to do mighty things for the Kingdom with an unleashed power that He pours into my mind, body and emotions.
“Finally, brothers and sisters, draw your strength and might from God” – Ephesians 6: 10
I am the beloved of God, handpicked, sanctified, redeemed, and washed in the precious blood of Jesus.
“Brothers and sisters beloved by God, we know that He has chosen you” – 1 Thessalonians 1: 4
I mirror God and will choose to do all that He does. Jesus set a perfect example of the Heavenly Father, and I being His child will reflect my Father in Heaven in all I do.

“He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession” – James 1: 18
The words I speak have CREATIVE POWER. As I take hold of God’s outline and perfect will over my life, I choose to let Jesus in me speak words of life. I will savor the fruits of Good and Heavenly words. My tongue will not utter a word that will put the Kingdom of Jesus into obscurity. I will not speak words that bring sorrow, sarcasm, hurt, dejection, and confusion, as I am the mouthpiece of God.
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it for death or life” – Proverbs 18: 31
God has made me an essential part of Himself. As a mother craves to pour her love on her child, so much more my Father in Heaven quests to shower His love over me. When God looks at His palms, He sees me. So, every ruin, broken walls, and the concerns of my life are always in His mind. Just like Nehemiah was chosen to rebuild the ruins of the Jerusalem temple, God in His divine manner, will bring people to my life, who will, by the leading of the Holy Spirit, help me rebuild myself and revive into a new and godly life. He alone is the cherisher of my soul and the rebuilder of my shattered past.
“Look here! I have made you a part of me, written you on the palms of My hands. Your city walls are always on My mind, always My concern” – Isaiah 49:16
God always, and forever intended to make His home within me. Living, breathing, walking and talking to Him, was His definitive desire for my life. Due to sin, it was once not possible for me to let Him have control over my all. But, today, The Master Maker of this Universe chooses me as His Child and heir.
“He has kept this secret for centuries and generations past, but now at last it has pleased him to tell it to those who love him and live for him, and the riches and glory of his plan are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ in your hearts is your only hope of glory” – Colossian 1: 26-27
When Jesus gave up His final breath, the mantle that fell on me was LOVE. He scrubs me clean from my iniquities, transgression and sins. It is His decision and will to make me Holy. He will not remember any fault of mine. The process that He takes me through would be harder and difficult, but all of it turns around, and is temporary. It is a blessing for me to go through those processes for when He is done with me, I magnify Him like never before.
“Long ago, even before he made the world, God chose us to be his very own through what Christ would do for us; he decided then to make us holy in his eyes, without a single fault—we who stand before him covered with his love” – Ephesians 1: 4
I belong to Christ and I am never ashamed to confess Jesus out aloud. I have overcome the spirit of anti-christ, which causes me to think that letting the world know that I belong to Jesus is not cool. I refuse to compromise on the revealed and written will of God. I embrace the blessing to obey and give Him glory at all times, by the help of the Holy Spirit. I will live with integrity that will speak louder than words; which will also challenge people to seek God to live an honorable life. Greater is the One living inside of me, than He who in living in the world.
“Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” – 1 John 4: 4
