Topic: Encouragement (02/23/12)

By Donna Wilcher


I am Forgiven,
My sin is all gone,
Clean as fresh fallen snow.

I am Written,
In the Lambs Book of Life,
Robed in white garments.

I’ve received Heavens Treasure,
My heart overflows,
His life and death foretold.

I am Loved,
Entirely persuaded,
No power in heaven or earth dare dispute it.

I am Redeemed.
Death has no hold over me,
Final enemy utterly defeated.

I am Righteous,
Yet not on my own,
His sacrifice did purchase.

I am Seated in Heaven,
Heir with The King,
He awaits my arrival with crown in His hand.

I am His Friend,
Established through Him,
By my faith, through His grace, Amazing!

I am Beautiful,
And wonderfully made in His image,
Marvelously created.

I am Chosen,
Anointed-Ordained to bear good fruit,
Till placed at His feet.

I Belong to The King,
My Alpha, my Omega,
My Beginning, my End.

I am Complete,
In His sight,
Finished and whole; His delight.

I am Fearless.
No man can harm me,
With Him as my ally.

I Can Do All Things,
With His strength to achieve,
My destinies purpose.

I Boldly Enter,
His gates open wide,
With praise and thanks in His courts.

I Draw close to Him,
The enemy flees,
Far away from me.

I Fervently Pray,
Availing much,
And many are healed and set free.

I Preach the Gospel,
To the lost and the blind,
Many receive and see.

I Walk by Faith,
Never by sight,
Confident in His promise.

I Commit all my Ways,
To the One who holds,
Heaven and earth secure.

I am Meek,
But not weak,
By His power and might.

I am Healthy.
His stripes bore for me,
I do claim and declare it.

I am Safe.
His angels dispatched,
Encamped round about me.

I Know His Voice,
My hearing attuned,
Him I do follow, and never another.

I am Wise,
With His wisdom,
knowledge sublime.

I am Never alone,
Nor forgotten,
Or abandoned on my own.

I am at Peace,
Perfectly mine,
My mind and trust in Him.

I Speak the Truth,
That does not come back void,
He promised to perform it.

I Know the Way,
The Truth,
And the Life lives in me.

I am Free.
Strongholds and bondages shattered,
This captive set free.

I am Strong,
But not on my own,
His power and might the source.

I Have a Sound-Mind,
Arguments completely demolished,
Theories and lofty cast down.

I Have All I Need,
From His riches in glory,
Met with abundance from heaven.

I Walk on the Water,
Storms I don't heed,
Waves cannot impede.

I am Blessed Coming In,
And blessed going out,
Enemies flee away from me.

I Have Authority,
To trample and tread,
On the enemies head.

I Put on the Armor,
My weapons imposing,
The battle triumphant.

I Fight a Good fight,
With endurance and patience,
And lay hold of eternity’s treasure.

I am Bold and Courageous,
Not at all dismayed,
Nor ever afraid.

I Say to these Mountains,
“Be cast!” and they go,
Removed forever.

I March and Shout,
The walls crumble,
And fall, at my feet.

I am an Overcomer,
Nothing prevails,
Gates opened and shattered.

I Loose what is bound,
And bind what is loosed,
With The Sword in my mouth.

I am Vigilant,
Of the enemies roaming roar,
His teeth pulled out, cannot devour.

I Do Not fear death,
His face I will see,
With outstretched hands, awaiting me.

I am a child of IAM.

I am . . . Encouraged.

Lovely, beautiful, inspiring, and absolutely encouraging.

Thanks for reminding us of who we are in Christ. How oft we forget. For me, the use of the word "I" was repetitive, but the many affirmations of our claims in Christ were very encouraging.
Amanda Brogan03/05/12
On our own we have nothing ... in Christ we have everything! Great truth here, and very Scriptural.

I like these affirmations. It would be a wonderful way to start each day.

I noticed Lamb's book and Heaven's Treasures didn't have apostrophe.

This flows so nicely and is a great reminder to all of us to claim the gifts God has given us.

Really lovely concept for this topic, and some wonderful word pictures. I think perhaps grouping the stanzas together a little more would be easier on the eye - the long page of short stanzas was a little overwhelming. The content, however, was awesome.

Thank you Donna for the beautiful word pictures of who God is and who I am ... in Him! I heard your heart today and it encouraged me!
