I’m Yours God, For I Belong To You

Here is a Declaration of Truth I say over my life regularly:⁠

I’m Yours God, for I belong to You! ⁠

Truth statements have become one of the key spiritual disciplines which help me replace the lies of the enemy with the Truth of God’s Word. Every one of my declarations is rooted in Scripture: ⁠

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.⁠

See that? As a Christ-follower, I do not belong to myself. I don’t belong to my wife. I don’t belong to the Church. I don’t belong to the enemy. I belong to God. Why?⁠

I belong to God because He bought me with a high price. The price of His Son Jesus, shredded and nailed to a cross.⁠

I don’t have to live to please myself. ⁠

I don’t have to live to please my wife. ⁠

I don’t have to live to please the church.⁠

I can live to please God because I belong to Him. ⁠

Truth statements like these are much more than self-help or positive affirmations. Truth statements are just that…TRUTH! ⁠

Scripture tells us that the enemy is the father of lies. He uses those lies to distract us, derail us, and destroy us. The only way lies are defeated is by replacing them with Truth.⁠

I’m Yours God, for I belong to You! ⁠

Say it! Believe it! Live it! I belong to God! ⁠
