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

There’s something special about starting a new day declaring powerful scriptures. 

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 His Word 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 starting our days confessing these powerful scriptures!

6 Powerful Scriptures & Confessions to Start Your Day

Scripture

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

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.

Scripture

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

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.

Scripture

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

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.

Scripture

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

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.

Scripture

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

Confession

Thank you, Lord that me 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

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

Confession

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 scriptures 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
