Personal Life Statement

[This is my personal life statement, or declaration, which I make to God.  I truly encourage anyone who lands on this page to take time to prayerfully write one also. I share mine with you as a, well, you know, springboard!]

I acknowledge that all my life’s purpose, all my life’s decisions, all my relationships, perspectives, and hopes, must be based on a confident and experiential embracing of God’s love for me as shown in the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of His Son, Jesus Christ. I agree with and accept God’s will and plan for me that Christ through my faith does actually dwell, settle down, abide, and make His permanent home in my heart; and that I am becoming rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, that I may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints the experience of that love, what is the breadth and length and height and depth of it; that I really come to know, practically, thoroughly, and experience for myself, the love of Christ. (Eph. 3:17-19 AMP)  In light of this truth:

  • I accept my new name as personally ascribed to me by God, my Father, as _____________, and accept the Holy Spirit’s work to continue to make this name a true reality in my character and personality. (Rev. 2:17)
  • I accept as God’s will and command that I do not fret nor have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition and definite requests, with thanksgiving, I will continue to make my wants known to God. Because of this act of faith, I accept God’s peace as a tranquil state of my soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot, this peace which transcends all understanding will garrison and mount guard over my heart and mind in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4:6-7 AMP)
  • I accept as God’s will and command to give no mental, emotional, physical, or spiritual opportunity to Satan and his emissaries (Eph. 4:27), and I will take every thought captive to obedience to Christ by casting down all imaginations, what if’s, if only’s, and why’s—past, present, and future—to the assurance of God’s love and care for me in Christ. (2 Cor 10:5)
  • I accept as God’s will and command to cast the whole of my care, all my anxieties, all my worries, all my concerns, once and for all on God, knowing that He cares for me affectionately and cares about me watchfully. (1 Peter 5:7 AMP)

Today I choose to trust God in all of my circumstances, decisions, perspectives and relationships:

  • I choose to trust in God’s love and grace to guide me and to lead me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. (Ps. 23)
  • I choose to trust in God’s love and grace for my reputation, in that as I walk in His paths of righteousness, I shall be called a priest of the Lord and people will speak of me as a minister of our God. (Is. 61:6)
  • I choose to trust in God’s love and grace for the timing of all events concerning my life and my death, knowing that the Lord will accomplish what concerns me, that His loving-kindness is, indeed, everlasting (Ps. 138:8)
  • I choose to trust in God’s love and grace for the liberal supply of all resources that I need according to His riches, so that I complete the work which He has planned beforehand that I should walk in it. These resources include, but are not limited to, time, money, energy, wisdom, and favor. (Eph. 2:10, Phil. 4:19) I will learn to trust in God’s grace for the moment.
  • I choose to trust in God’s love and grace to work through my frailty and fallibility, that I may do no harm to others through my thoughts, words, and actions; and that where harm has occurred, I trust the Holy Spirit to guide me through full restitution in such a way as to honor His name. I believe that nothing is wasted in God’s economy, and that includes any pain or suffering that I have caused or that has come to me through others, and I trust God to help me complete any unfinished business in my life as I seek to obey Him fully. “God’s grace is more powerful than my stupid.” (L. Wilson)  (2 Cor. 12:9)
  • I choose to trust in God’s love and grace when I am afraid. (Ps. 112:7; Ps. 56:3)
  • I choose to trust in God’s love and grace concerning His full forgiveness and full deliverance from my sinful state and sinful nature. I will not count Christ’s blood as common by allowing any doubt concerning the status of my relationship with and to God as my Creator (Rom. 1:25), Sustainer (Ps. 3:5), Redeemer (Ps. 103:4), Friend (John 15:13-15), and Abba Father (Rom. 8:15).
  • I choose to trust God’s love and grace in forgiving others as I have been forgiven. I freely admit that there is no offense that has been or can be committed against me that is greater than the offense of my sin against God. When I am wronged, it is against God first rather than myself, since I belong to Him, and therefore all recompense for any wrong against me belongs to God.  I refuse to avenge myself in thought, word, or action. (Mark 11:25; Rom. 13:4)
  • I choose to trust in God’s love and grace to walk in the authority, dignity, and power that He has bestowed on me by raising me up together with Him and making me sit down together, giving me joint seating with Him in the heavenly sphere in Christ Jesus, my Messiah. (Eph. 2:6 AMP)
  • I choose to trust in God’s love and grace as I put on His full armor provided for me to protect myself and others, and to stand and fight effectively against the powers of darkness. I submit myself to His training and equipping for battle as He determines for me.  (Eph 6:11-17; Ps. 144:1 AMP)
  • I choose to trust in God’s love and grace to rearrange my motives, gifts, finances, and activities according to His pleasure. (John 7:17 AMP)
  • I choose to trust in God’s love and grace concerning my husband, my children, my extended family, my church, and my friends. I commit to God their past, present, and future, and above all, their relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. (Eph. 3:14, 15 AMP)

I now confess and agree with God’s Word that God is able to make all grace abound to me so that, always having all sufficiency in everything, I may have abundance for every good deed. (2 Cor 9:8)

I commit this entirely to God through Jesus Christ and I do trust Him to keep me without stumbling or slipping or falling, and to present me unblemished, blameless and faultless before the presence of His glory in triumphant joy and exultation with unspeakable, ecstatic delight.  To the one only God, my Savior through Jesus Christ my Lord, be glory, splendor, majesty, might and dominion and power and authority, before all time and now and forever unto all the ages of eternity, Amen.  (Jude 24,25 AMP)

  1. Wow, this is great! I like how specific and scriptural based it all is. People say God is good and Jesus loves you all the time, but I like knowing exactly how God is good and how that knowledge alone should inform the way we live. I like this springboard series, very inspiring and motivational.

    1. Hey thanks! I’m still playing with it. Everything is live, even when you’re working on the site, so sorry if it seems a little unorganized this morning, still trying to get this new category under control! thanks for the feedback so far.
