21 Christian Affirmations for Self-Esteem

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.

  1. I’m so grateful for these affirmations. I’ve been struggling with terrible self-esteem and doubting if I’m loved. I’ve had a hard time with people in my life criticizing me. I also self-criticize and even self-harmed physically recently. I see the right medical doctors for these issues. I’m grateful for the list you put together which fills my heart with hope and love. Thank you
