Extra – one of the most upbuilding exercises you’ll ever do
Know who you really are – and say it!
These true sayings are based on the NIV Scriptures which you can check out on the links. It’s a good idea to read these out two or three times – or more. If you are having difficulty with confusion, perhaps battling with thoughts the opposite of these truths, this is how you deal with it – in the power of the declared Word.
This is the sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6:17) and the way you take up that sword is by declaring and agreeing, in a no-nonsense, out loud way, what the Bible, God’s true Word, says about you. You may experience opposition at first, but as you press through and do it, you will experience the ‘noise’ decreasing and God’s peace coming in.
Make a note of any of these truths which particularly speak to you, and memorise them so that you can say them at any time.
