Affirmations are ‘I am…. statements’ that are used to mentally stimulate the mind and coerce you into thinking and believing whatever follows the ‘I Am’ statement – lulling you into a false sense of security.

Feels like rejection.

Your brain will reject  things it doesn’t believe. Saying ‘I am rich!’ ‘I am abundant!’  can jarr the mind and instigate an internal battle that wants to counter any such claims when faced with the realities of your bank balance. The deceptive belief around harnessing the power of ‘I Am’ statements places you in a position of being the sole creator of your destiny which is spiritually damaging and ultimately delusional

A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. – Proverbs 17:22

You might say – Whats wrong with a little pepping up?

What does the Bible have to say about the big ‘I AM?’

Well, I’m so glad you asked…

When Moses was in the presence of God, the first instance at the burning bush – He heard the voice of God tell me to free the Israelites, Moses afraid thinking why send him with no army and a poor speaking. He asked God – who should I say sent me?

God replies

YWHW – Which means I am that I am.

But you can call me Yahweh – the one who is and has always been.

That’s the big I AM. God.
