25 Faith Affirmations To Boost A Woman’s Confidence

Sometimes, our negative thoughts take over and make Biblical truths seem far away. 

This unhelpful way of thinking often comes when we are experiencing a difficult time in life.

But even when everything is going smoothly, the dark clouds of negativity may still overshadow some of us. Eventually, these thought patterns become habits. 

God knew we would have these moments in life, so He tells us to take our thoughts captive. 

These positive statements will help reshape your daily life.

Faith affirmations about being a child of God 

One of the things that many Christian women struggle with is acting like an orphan when God tells them they are His child. And what does that orphan mentality look like? 

  • feeling timid when it comes to their own needs
  • lack of confidence in their own abilities
  • fear of what others think of them

But when we have a positive mindset based on God’s word, those wrong thoughts begin to fade into oblivion.

We are told in Scripture to think about positive things. It isn’t just a feel-good “self-care” tip. It is truth from the promises of God. (Philippians 4:8)

“See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. ” 1 John 3:1 ESV

“To all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” John 1:12 ESV 

“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.” John 15:16 ESV

God has adopted us into His family. Think about it. When a woman gives birth to a baby, she can’t choose the one she wants. But adoptive parents can. this is exactly what God does for us.

“Because you are sons (and daughters), God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.” Galatians 4:6-7 ESV (Explanation added)

“And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.” Ephesians 3:18, NLT

Every little girl wants her daddy’s love. Ladies, we never outgrow that need. Regardless of what kind of dad you had, God the Father loves you!

Faith affirmations about forgiveness of sins

Forgiveness leading to eternal life is the greatest gift anyone could give us.

The problem is that some of our wrongdoings seem so big to us that the enemy will keep bringing them up, making us continue to feel guilty. It is a powerful tool from the mouth of the evil one.

But don’t let him get to you. The saving work of Christ is greater than any lie of Satan. 

“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” Romans 8:1 ESV

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9 ESV

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come, All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation .” 2 Corinthians 5:17-18

This should give all Christian women peace of mind knowing that our past is not held against us.

The very things that we wish were not a part of our history often become our ministry. For instance, someone who has a past prison record can speak with authenticity to those currently in prison. 

Faith affirmations about being God’s masterpiece

When we grasp what God says about us, it will give a whole different meaning to life than we may be used to. These are powerful statements full of energy

“Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:26-27

Just like many children resemble their parents, human beings have many of God’s characteristics. But the greatest part about being in God’s image is that we can connect spiritually with Him, something the rest of creation can not do.

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10, ESV

Faith Affirmation #8 from Ephesians 2:10

We have a purpose. We aren’t here by chance with no rhyme or reason for our existence. God created us for good works so that we can represent Jesus, the light of the world, to others. 

“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made … Your eyes saw my unformed substance … in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.”  Psalm 139:13-14, 16 ESV

We each have a place in God’s plan.

Faith affirmations for a better day 

First thing in the morning, daily positive affirmations are sure to get you off on the right foot. The word of God is powerful that way. 

“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”  Psalm 118:24 ESV

Each day we get out of bed is a gift. We may have aches and pains but we also have another opportunity to live for Jesus and share God’s love. 

“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13 ESV

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”   Psalm 46:1 ESV

Faith Affirmation #11 from Philippines 4:13 and Psalm 46:1

There is a saying, “God doesn’t call the equipped. He equips the called.” When we have God-given responsibilities, God will help us fulfill them. 

“For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” 2 Timothy 1:7

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Johsua 1:9 ESV

Let’s face it. There are times when we just don’t want to move forward because of fear. But it doesn’t have to be that way. 

“…all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” (Psalm 139:16, NIV)

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10 ESV

“… He has said, ‘ I will never leave you nor forsake you.’  So we can confidently say, ‘The Lord is my helper;    I will not fear; what can man do to me?’ ” Hebrews 13:5-6 ESV

Any task is easier when we know we ar not in it alone.

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 ESV

If this is hard to grasp because life is hard right now, just remember nothing lasts forever. At some point in time you will understand how God’s plans were good.

” …We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” 2 Chronicles 20:12b ESV

“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”   James 1:5 NIV 

When we ask God for His wisdom, He doesn’t reply, “Seriously? You can’t figure that out?”  

God knows we are human and do not have the big picture. He does not criticize us for asking and does not find fault with us. What a kind and compassionate Heavenly Father we have. 

“…Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand …” Jeremiah 18:6b ESV

“I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.” John 10:28

No matter how hard our circumstances may be, we have a loving God holding us. Even if we lose our earthly life, we have eternal life waiting for us on the other side.

“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” Romans 8:18 ESV

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, for those who are called according to his purpose.Romans 8:28 ESV

The present moment may seem difficult. It may feel like our ship is going down and we may want to bale out. By trusting God, these Bible affirmations give us the strength to keep moving forward. 

Faith affirmations from God’s promises

There is an old song titled, “Standing on the Promises.”  When we do that, we are not as apt to trip and fall in our spiritual walk. Here are two powerful affirmations to keep you standing strong. 

“And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19

“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33 ESV

“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:15-16 ESV

Faith affirmations for spiritual growth

Our spiritual journey is similar to the growth of a baby into childhood, then being a teenager, and finally becoming an adult. There is a strong connection between Biblical affirmations and spiritual growth. 

This way of thinking is not a bunch of magical “mantras” that we mindlessly repeat over and over. They are God’s truth that has the power to transform us. We internalize them by speaking them, thinking about them, and then letting the Holy Spirit use them to change us.  

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Psalm 119:105

When a person walks in the dark without a flashlight, it would be easy to stumble and fall. God’s word is like a flashlight to keep us from falling spiritually.

“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11 ESV

Faith Affirmation #22 from Psalm 16:11

When we are having trouble finding joy, we need to spend more time with God and with God’s people.

“You keep him (or her) in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.” Isaiah 26:3 ESV (Explanation added)

Faith affirmations 22 and 23 are closely related. We spend time in God’s presence when we read the Bible and pray. We continue that fellowship with Him as we go about our daily activities.

  • Thinking about what he wants us to do, think, and say.
  • We can think about Him she we see beauty in nature or when He prevented us from an accident
  • We actually can think about God off and on all day long.

“Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.” Philippians 2:4 NLT

“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11 ESV

“Who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” 2 Corinthians 1:4 ESV

Faith affirmations 24 and 25 are closely related also, like two sides to the same coin.

Are you using spiritual affirmations daily?

By now I hope you are seeing the benefits of positive affirmations. But they won’t do you any good if you don’t start using them daily. 

As the saying goes, “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make them drink.” 

Jesus is the living water that we need to drink in every day. He came that we might have a full, rich life. 

If you don’t know Jesus, you probably have questions. The people at Chat About Jesus have answers. You can talk to them right now. They are available any time of the day and night, on weekends, and holidays.

You can chat with them online from anywhere in the world. If you live in the United States, you can text or call them.
