Everyone needs a little help with their self-esteem from time to time. Often times we don’t even know it!

You would think that Christians would have all the self-esteem they need. Unfortunately, our self-esteem can take a beating on a regular basis, and we can benefit from these powerful reminders from the scriptures of who we are and what we’re capable of in Christ.

These 21 Christian affirmations for self-esteem come with a handy scripture reference in most cases, to help you see the affirmation in its original biblical context.

I’ve also provided a link to a YouTube recording below, if you would like to listen to a guided walk through of the affirmations.

Before you begin reciting these affirmations, you may find it helpful to take a deep cleansing breath. As you recite them, declare them powerfully with conviction.

Enjoy!
