In this guest article, we will explore various Biblical affirmations for women and how we can apply God’s truth to our lives. So, grab your Bible and let’s dig in…
Being a woman comes with challenges that most men will not experience. Many of these experiences can compromise our sense of self, lead to poor self-image and cause us to doubt our importance or worth.
As a stay-at-home mom looking after three tiny children, it was easy to lose my self-confidence. Everyone in my circle seemed to be forging ahead with careers. My days consisted of changing dirty diapers, cleaning sticky hands, and surviving late afternoon wailing. There is no feedback or congratulations for surviving the day or getting the children fed and in bed on time.
On the flip side, single women can feel inadequate or deal with self-worth issues if they desire to be married or have children and have not had that happen yet.
Women naturally get a lot of their self-image from the men in their lives. This starts with how fathers relate to their daughters and continues with boyfriends and husbands. Sadly, many women have had poor fathering and neglectful husbands or have even been in abusive relationships. They then relate this to their self-worth when reality is that our self-worth should be rooted in God.
It is also not uncommon for women to feel powerless and alone in the trials they face. Even walking down the street can be dangerous for women, making them feel weak, anxious, and afraid.
They good news is that we serve a mighty God who longs to help us face our feelings of self-worth, fear, pain, and more. One way we can grab hold of God’s truths is by using powerful affirmations based on scripture to help us.
Paul makes it clear that it’s important that we take our thoughts captive.
casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, – 2 Corinthians 10:5
Our self-talk can be destructive and lead to many false beliefs. Biblical affirmations can counteract these thought patterns. It will helps us bring those thoughts into captivity to the obedience of Christ!

Powerful Biblical Affirmations For Women
BIBLE AFFIRMATION: I am not alone. God understands my suffering and will help me through it.
The wonderful gift we can receive from God is that he understands us. Hebrews 2:18 reminds us that Jesus has been through the same suffering and temptations we have.
Jesus lived on earth as a human and went through all the trials we did. He is compassionate towards us in our troubles. He gives us “immediate assistance to those who are exposed to suffering” (Amplified Bible).
BIBLE AFFIRMATION: God is my strength and my rock. He defends me and watches over me.
Psalm 18:2 reminds us that we can find protection in God. He defends us and is our stronghold or high tower. God provides us with a safe place, secure from danger and trouble. When you do not know where to turn for help, hide yourself in God.
Did you ever build a fort when you were young? My siblings and I built a fort in a hidden location. It was a place where I could go when the world was too much, injustices had been done, and I was defeated. God says he is our stronghold or fort. Hide away in him when life has broken you.
BIBLE AFFIRMATION: God is my Father, and he will care for me deeply.
Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. – 1 John 3:2 NKJV
2 Corinthians 6:18 says that God is our Father, and we are His daughters. And In 1 Peter 5:7, we are reminded that God cares for us. This is such a beautiful and powerful truth. God doesn’t just claim us as His children, but He cares for us and wants us draw close to Him.
BIBLE AFFIRMATION: I can do everything through Christ
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. – Philippians 4:13
Philippians 4:13 is one of my favorite verses! It underlines that we can do all things because we do not use our own strength, but find our strength in Him.
As a women, you can sometimes feel weak and disempowered. And this can come from a number of reasons, but most of the time it’s our self-talk. That’s why it’s important that we remind ourselves that it is God who makes you strong. In Isaiah 41:10, God tells us not to be afraid because he will help us.
BIBLE AFFIRMATION: God has chosen me!
“Indeed, I have inscribed [a picture of] you on the palms of My hands;
Your city walls [Zion] are continually before Me. – Isaiah 49:16 AMP
God loves and values us so much that He has tattooed or engraved us in the palm of His hand. I love how the Amplified version saws a picture of us.
This scripture always reminds me of parents having pictures of their kids in their wallets or now on their phones. The are always showing off what their kid has done. It’s a beaufitufl picture that God has us on His mind all the time. And how could He forget us? Everytime he looks down into His hands He sees us.
BIBLE AFFIRMATION: God delights in me. I bring Him joy.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord,
And He delights in his way.
Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down;
For the Lord upholds him with His hand. – Psalm 37:23-24 NKJV
Psalm 37:23-24, states that God delights in every aspect of our lives. Our lives may seem mundane. Cleaning a house, doing laundry, and wiping snotty noses are not inspirational tasks, but God is interested in all these parts of our lives. He stands beside us when we are busy folding laundry; when we care for crabby, tired children, he cheers us on.
We only need to look at the story of Hagar in Genesis 16. Pregnant Hagar is in trouble. She is running away from Sarah when God meets her in the desert.
He gives her instructions and a promise, but forever after, Hagar referred to him as “the God who looked upon me.” (Genesis 16:13) This was a God who paid attention to every detail of her life.
BIBLE AFFIRMATION: God will supply my needs.
As a mother, we are often left as the last backstop. Our responsibility is to ensure our children are fed and have a safe place to sleep. This can be challenging in our ever-changing world, where jobs can be lost overnight and food prices are soaring.
Matthew 6:8 reminds us that our Father God knows exactly what we need before we ask him. Matthew 6:31-32 reinforces that God knows we need food and clothes. It encourages us not to worry because God will provide.
BIBLE AFFIRMATION: God will give me wisdom.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding; – Proverbs 3:5 NKJV
I have often been known to ask, “who decided I was wise enough and clever enough to handle this problem?” Many mothers feel this way. Our children have health or learning problems we do not know how to solve. Sometimes children behave in a way that leaves us bewildered. The great news is that God knows the answers.
Proverbs 3:5 encourages us to trust God and not rely on our own wisdom or knowledge. James 1:5 says if we lack wisdom, we can ask God, who will give it to us generously.
BIBLE AFFIRMATION: I am beautiful. I am created in the image of God, and He has made me perfect.
For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. – Psalm 139: 13-15
Many women struggle with poor body image and place their value on how they look. Plus this digital age that we live in has made it even worse. Everyone is photoshopped and/or using filters. We compare ourselves to something that isn’t even real.
God tells us in Song of Songs 4:7 that we are completely beautiful and without flaws or blemishes. Psalm 139 13-15, praises God because he fashioned us inside our mother’s wombs. We stand in awe of how God made us; the complexity is amazing.
When did you last praise God because he made you so beautifully?

Have you ever dropped into bed, exhausted at the end of the day, only to find your mind crowded with worries and troubles?
Rest is so important, and women are often short-changed when it comes to sleep.
