Biblical Affirmations For Kids To Say Every Day
Remember when you were a kid? Remember how lots of things seemed WAY bigger back then?
Making friends, insecurities, being afraid… the list could go on.
It’s our job to help our kids be READY for when those thoughts come their way. One way to do that is to have them repeat biblical affirmations every single day.
It’s so important that we choose our words carefully because they have the power of life and death (Proverbs 18:21). When we speak something, we can choose to speak LIFE.
The words we speak about our kids and over them, MATTER.
The words our kids speak out loud and about themselves, MATTER.
When we fuel them with not only positive affirmations and phrases but biblical ones, we are helping them nurture the most important need they have – their spiritual need for God.
These biblical affirmations for kids will help them fight off attacks from the enemy, learn about the Bible and God’s truths, and help them grow and understand how God sees them – as His precious child.
Each one of these affirmations has a scripture backing it because that is where we want our kids to turn to when they are struggling. Help them repeat these every day, and in relevant situations when you see them struggling.
Let’s get right into it…
