The Bible says that God is love, and God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.

God loves you and has given you all good things.
Father God has blessed you.
When you turned away from your old life and turned to God (repented), you received God’s complete forgiveness. God threw all your sins away, as far as the east is from the west. He forgot all your sins. He forgot your past and won’t bring it up. Your past is gone.
When you gave your life to Jesus, God, Jesus and your spirit became one, not to be separated. God is with you always and Jesus will never leave you.
God sent His Holy Spirit to live in you, to show you His love, to teach you His word patiently.
Giving your life to Jesus was a decision you made from your heart.
God’s forgiveness is a free gift that no one can earn. None of us can earn God’s forgiveness. He gave it to us freely through the death and resurrection of His dear Son Jesus.

When you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, Jesus became your big brother, showing you how to live and giving you everything you need to live like Him.

When you accepted Jesus, Father God became your Father and you became part of God’s family. Now you have many brothers and sisters in Christ.

You have the Spirit of the living God living inside you.
God is with you always.

Through Jesus’ death and resurrection, you were saved and you were also healed.
You can’t earn the salvation and the healing. Don’t be afraid. Only believe.
God gave you salvation and healing because He loves you very much and wants you to have eternal life with Him. The life that God gives you, you have now. You don’t have to wait till you get to heaven to have that life. The life of God frees your spirit, soul and body. God wants you to spend time with Him and learn His word through the Bible, because He loves you and wants you to know what He was done for you. Each day you can better understand the freedom that you have in Jesus Christ and grow to become more like Jesus in action every day. This is the grace of God, through faith.

When you become a Christian the devil comes to tell you lies. Lies like “God hates you” “You’re too bad to be saved” “If you do anything wrong God will leave you and make bad things happen to you” “You’re not really saved” “God won’t heal you” “You don’t need God” “You don’t need forgiveness”. This is called temptation.

Don’t believe these lies. If the devil tries to tell you lies, you have not done anything wrong, he does that to everyone, he even did it to Jesus. Don’t listen to him. Like Jesus, you can use God’s word and tell the devil to go in the name of Jesus. Pray with God and ask others to pray with you. Pray for others.

The words don’t have to be perfect, God knows what is in your heart. He made you and loves you very much.
When Jesus died on the cross and was resurrected, God gave Him all authority. This means the devil has none. Jesus defeated the devil, the devil is illegal and has no rights. Jesus told us to use His authority. The devil has no rights over you, your life, your circumstances or health. You have every God given right to tell the devil to go in the name of Jesus!

God’s word can be used to remind us what He has done for us and who we are in Christ. You can use God’s word and personalise it, say it aloud.

If you have a negative thought which is a lie, you can think of a scripture from the Bible which is truth. Believe the Bible above all else, and you will see your life change as you never expected. Pray to God, He hears you and answers you.

Here are some scriptures:
For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. Romans 8:15

You can personalise this scripture like this:
For I have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but I have received the Spirit of adoption whereby I cry, Abba, Father!
For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7

For God has not given me the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Philippians 4:13

For you are all the children of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
Galatians 3:26

For I am a son/daughter of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
For with God nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1:37
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ
Ephesians 1:3

Blessed be the God and Father of my Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed me with all spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
James 4:7

I have submitted to God. I resisted the devil and he has fled from me.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, not any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38 – 39
