What do you say about yourself? YOU are the only person who can define yourself and the trajectory of your life. I always say – your words determine your world. I once heard a sermon by Bishop Tudor Bismarck where he states that whatever you place after “I AM” becomes your reality. The I AM factor allows you to place faith in your life’s situations.
In the book of Exodus, Moses asks God what His name is and who should he tell the people sent him. God replies, “I am who I am. Say this to the people of Israel, ‘I am has sent me to you.’” The I AM factor creates a sense of authority. Truthfully, we are made in God’s image. What He says is established by His own authority. What we speak in faith (or fear) is also established by the authority He has given to us.
Because society teaches us not to respect authority, we don’t fully understand the implications of it. Especially in the Kingdom of God. But think of it like this – diplomatic ambassadors can go into different territories and speak on behalf of the nations they represent. They have the authority to decree things and set certain actions in motion because they have the backing of that particular government. This is the same way the I AM factor works. If you are a believer, you have authority, backed by God. So what are you saying?
Here are a few I AM confessions that you can make about yourself:
I AM more than a conqueror
I AM a world overcomer
I AM healthy, wealthy, wise and fit to do all things
I AM beautiful
I AM strong
I AM gifted
I AM fearless
I AM protected
I AM free
