Beloved, do you feel weak today? If so, speak your faith out loud that God is in you to make you strong! To help you, I wrote these 35 confessions of strength.
(And by the way, these confessions are an excerpt from our upcoming paperback book, Speak Life Volume 3: The Harvest Is Plentiful. Be on the lookout for more about the book soon! And this is just an excerpt; the full chapter of confessions of strength in the book will have many more confessions for you, since we all need strength every day!)
If you’re not sure why verbal declarations and confessions matter, here’s why it’s SO important, Biblically, to speak confessions of strength and faith out loud:
In the Bible, faith (in the Greek) is the word we transliterate pistis, which means:
- both the deep, inner conviction of a thing
- PLUS the simultaneous verbal confession of a thing.
You cannot have Biblical faith without speaking your faith out loud, and without being deeply convinced of it down in your gut. The combination of those two things equals the very definition of faith!
Everything you see was created by the spoken word.
So if you have nothing except the ability to speak, you can still create anything you want. You can be like God and speak those things that are not as if they already were (Romans 4:17)!
To help you, Jamie wrote a book of hundreds of Biblical confessions for you—especially in the area of your finances. It called Speak Life Volume 1: Chart Your Course With Your Words, and it’s our most popular book ever! Get your copy today and begin speaking LIFE over those things that concern you!
I personally invest time in speaking my faith out loud every day.
I speak out various confessions about God’s help, about who I am in Christ, about finances, about grace, and many other things as the day requires. God’s Word is the very lifeblood of any successful life! Without it, I would keel over and die; I know it. God’s Word brings LIFE.
If you’re anything like me, you probably feel the need for God’s strength every day.
No matter what your life looks like, you experience pressures and stressors; hard times and challenges. And we need God’s strength for those things.
So, to help you get God’s Word in your mouth specifically about STRENGTH, I wrote the following 35 confessions of strength for you–and for myself, too! 🙂 Please do speak them out loud as you read them, and you will feel the power and life of God roaring through your body, soul, and spirit.

Friend, did these 35 confessions of strength encourage you today?
We all need strength and grace from God to get through every day. This world is not our home; and, if you’re anything like me, you feel that keenly. Heaven is our home, and God Himself is our Dwelling and Refuge–and anything less feels cold and painful.
However, beloved, our Father in Heaven loves you with an everlasting love.
With great mercies He bears us up every day of our lives. He puts breath in our lungs and clothes on our backs and food in our bellies, and through all the pain of life He is with us to comfort us.
And one day, we will be home with Him in everlasting joy and the eternal bliss of His presence. Until then, we depend on His strength from day to day. He is the Vine; we are the branches. Without Him we can do nothing.
But, if we will follow His pattern believe His Word, and obey His commands to confess our faith verbally, His strength will give life to you. It will roar through your limbs, through your brain, through your entire body, soul, and spirit.
And His strength will be made perfect in you today.
