Day Five: This is who “I am.”

I am a child of God (John 1:12).
I am part of the true vine,
and Christ’s life flows through me (John 15:1, 5).
I am a coheir with Christ, inheriting his glory (Romans 8:17).
I am a temple – a dwelling place – for God.
His Spirit and his life live in me (1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19).
I am a part of the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:27).
I am a new person in Christ.
My past is forgiven and everything is new (2 Cor.5:17).
I am chosen of God, holy and dearly loved
(Colossians 3:12, 1 Thessalonians 1:4).
I am a child of light and not of darkness (1 Thessalonians 5:5).
I am only a visitor to this world in which I temporarily live (1 Peter 2:11).
I am a child of God,
and I will be like Christ when he returns (1 John 3:1,2).
I am born again in Christ, and the evil one – the devil – cannot touch me
(1 John 5:18).

Since I am in Christ, by the grace of God…

The sinful person I used to be died with Christ,
and sin no longer rules my life (Romans 6:1-6).
I am free from the punishment (condemnation) my sin deserves (Romans 8:1).
I have been given the mind of Christ.
He gives me his wisdom to make right choices (1 Corinthians 2:16).
I have been crucified with Christ and it is no longer I who live,
but Christ lives in me. The life I now live is Christ’s life (Galatians 2:20).
I have been bought out of slavery to sin (redeemed) and forgiven.
I have received his generous grace (Ephesians 1:7-8).
I have direct access to God through the Spirit (Ephesians 2:18).
I have been given a spirit of power, love and self-control (2 Timothy 1:7).

Prayer: Father, I am so thankful that I am who you say I am, completely belonging to You.  I choose to live today declaring these truths over my heart and mind no matter what comes my way.
