I am created in the Image of God.
Treasuring and reverencing my life and my physical, mental,
and spiritual health as gifts from a benevolent Creator who has
made me a prophet, priest and king in Christ.
I am being saved -- perfected --
attaining the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ --
and therefore I am the pinnacle of God's creation.
I am the slave of God; I have been bought from the demonic
slave-traders, and the price paid for me is the life-blood of
I have been adopted into the Family of God.
No man has a higher calling than I.
I truly am capable of great accomplishments.
I have died to sin and am resurrected in Christ.
I am a new creature; the old man is dead and the new man within
me is being nurtured and energized.
Christ is in me.
The sins of my old man have been atoned for by Christ. I do not
punish myself in a futile quest for self-atonement.
I will not allow money-hungry propagandists to influence my
choices through manipulative advertising which fills their coffers
and depletes my life of the health and resources which God has
I will not allow Nazi bureaucrats to deprive me of life,
liberty and the blessing (happiness) of God.
The sins of the fathers are not required from the sons. The
sins -- real and imagined -- of people who lived centuries ago
were tragic, but were not my sins. I learn from those who preceded
me, but I will not be ensnared by their contemporary enemies, who
seek to hobble me with their vengeance.
The Spirit is bearing fruit in my life:
And we know that all things work together for good to those who
love God, to those who are the called according to His
purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be
conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn
among many brethren.
-- Romans 8:28-29
I have remembered Thy Name, O LORD, in the night, and have
kept Thy Law.
-- Psalm 119:55
This isn't that New Age
"Positive Thinking" stuff, is it??
