When you act out of your limiting belief or false identity (people-please, control, boast, or act overly dramatic) you behave in ways that don’t line up with who God created you to be.

This is the time to seek the Holy Spirit and come into alignment with who you are in Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5).

Notice when you're acting out of fear, a limiting belief, or false identity. Use the declarations/confessions below to bring you back into alignment.

ONLY CHOOSE THE LIMITING BELIEFS THAT APPLIES TO YOU—you do not have to do them all.
