6 Powerful Scripture Verses to Start Your Day

Share with your friends!

There’s something special about declaring powerful scripture verses each day. 

Years ago I began a holy habit of waking up speaking to God and declaring His Word over my family.

The moment my eyes would open, I would invite Him into my day with a “Good morning, Lord!” and ask Him to be my guide for each day.

With a busier schedule and more kids in school, I find myself inconsistent with this routine.

I even found myself calling it ritualistic, doubting that it was producing anything significant.

As I prayed and sought God on the matter, He began to speak to me about the importance of speaking daily scripture verses over myself and my family. He reminded me that although I didn’t feel any major difference in the natural, I was warring in the spirit. There are times when our cries and our confessions seem to be producing no results in the natural, but much is taking place in the spiritual.

The truth of these declarations became very clear:

When we confess God’s Word, our prayers are lining up with His will.

We are speaking things that may not be as if they exist.

There is power in our confessions.

Recently I’ve decided to become more intentional in this area. I want to operate in the full power given to me in Christ. I no longer want to walk around as a worn-out, defeated Christian. Jesus died so that I would have life in abundance, so today I’m claiming what is mine! I’m refusing to let the circumstances of life dictate how my day will go. Instead, the Word of God will be the covering for my family each day.

Maybe you’re feeling the same way? Let’s commit to confessing powerful daily scriptures verses!

Do you start your day by confessing a powerful scripture verse? As Christians we are given a powerful weapon: our mouths. Here are 6 verses to get you going

6 Powerful Confessions & Daily Scripture Verses

Daily Scripture for Protection

No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17 AMP

Daily Confession

Thank you, Lord, that no weapon formed against me or my family will prosper. Every tongue that rises against us will be condemned. We have peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over our enemies as your children.

Daily Scripture for Favor

The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.  Deuteronomy 28:13 NIV

Daily Confession

Thank you, Lord, that I am the head and not the tail, above only and not beneath in all that I do. You guide me and give me wisdom every day, causing all things to work out for my good.

Daily Scripture for Provision

And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 NLT

Daily Confession

Thank you, Lord, that You will supply all of my needs according to Your riches. Your supply is endless! I rest in Your ability to provide for me today. I refuse to worry, complain, or be stressed by any lack that I see, knowing that I am completely taken care of by You.

Daily Scripture for Blessing

Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be blessed. Deuteronomy 28:6 NLT

Daily Confession

Thank you, Lord, that You bless me wherever I go. Whether I am at work, at the grocery, picking up my kids, or running errands, your favor surrounds me like a shield.

Daily Scripture to Flourish

May the Lord cause you to flourish, both you and your children. Psalm 115:14 NIV

Daily Confession

Thank you, Lord, that I and my family will flourish in every area.  My finances, my health, my relationships, my work, my spiritual life are all flourishing because of You. My husband will grow in his business, have flourishing relationships, and walk in perfect health. Our children will make godly friends, excel in school, and be in good health and prosper, even as their souls prosper.

Scripture for Victory

No despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. Romans 8:37 NLT


We are more than conquerors in Christ. Overwhelming victory is ours. Fear cannot hold us back. Depression has no place in our lives. Lack cannot come near us. Our thoughts line up with Your Word. Our mouths confess Your greatness and Your love for us. The enemy cannot hold us back, defeat us or discourage us. Victory is ours in Christ.

If you’d rather pray these confessions in one prayer, I made a graphic to help you out. Feel free to print it out, laminate it and stick it in your bible! The more we confess these daily scripture verses the more we will see the fruit of God’s work in our lives.

    I woke up today with this thought on my heart “today is the day everything changes”! I have been living outside of Gods will for 2 years and there isn’t enough room here to share the destruction and sorrow that 2 years has brought.. But today is the day I give my life back to Christ…and this is where He led me to start my journey back to Him. God is a great and mighty God! Thank you for having this place for me to come..you will not likely know the depths of my gratitude until we meet one day in Heaven. You are doing a good work for Him in this website thank you for being obedient to Christ. It is because of your obedience that I will gain strength! God bless you! Lori K

  31. Thank you Alisa for sharing this amazing word of God. Growing up as a little young man in Uganda, I knew that God had placed a huge demand on heart to serve him but things took another direction when I reallocated from Uganda to come and live here in the United States permanently. It’s very easy here in America to be caught up serving two masters because the world promises this and that. It’s true I had to work my way up but along the way I started doing all these thing from the physical man. I starved my soul. I chased hours at work but still there is no any single day I was ever satisfied with the paycheck. Thoughts and beliefs that I had left in Egypt started showing up again in my life because my spirit was so hungry. My prayer life was replaced with work and chasing all these materialistic things but yet the goodness of the lord still followed me in everything I was doing. As 36 year old, I knew that my life had not flourished the way God wanted me to be. After looking back and see all these many years I wasted chasing success, somewhere somehow, my life was still empty and that’s when my spiritual awakening call knocked on my door to repent, revive and get myself together back in the hands of the creator who knows well my beginning and end. It’s easy to know that your life has not yet become victorious just like the way God wants us to be if your very sincere to re-evaluate yourself with all honesty. I knew was born again, baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost but something in my life had not yet reached where I wanted to be. For example I went back to school, got my masters degree but am still struggling to get a job. That for me is a spiritual sign that my breakthrough door needs to be commanded to open. I am dedicating this year back to the creator of heaven and earth through repentance, prayer and fasting so a fresh new visitation of God presence can show up again in everything am doing. Please join hands with me as I pray and dedicate this year 2022 back to him God who never fails. Alisa, I am 36 years old. No kids and never married. I have been waiting and praying for my beautiful wife wherever she is that may God keep her safe for me. People ask me all the time that how can a handsome like me be still single. It’s very to answer them back when you know that it’s true but it’s a commitment that I have made that will not marry anyone. The holy has to be involved in this very exciting but yet a very purpose fulfilled journey to walk it with a woman who loves God in truth and action. Secondly, pray for me that may God remember me and bless me with a very good of my desires. And finally but not the least, my pray for me that may God’s wisdom, knowledge and understanding follow my steps as I dedicate this year back to Jesus in faith and truth. Thank you so much.

  34. God bless you abundantly.May God continue using to reach out to more souls.
