I was watching Bill Winston Monday I believe and he said something that made me go hmmm...He said we as a people most importantly believers do not have a money problem or a health problem, we have an image problem. When speaking of image he nor I are speaking of how others view you, this directly refers to how you see yourself. If we truly saw ourselves the way Yahweh sees us we would be a lot better off than we are now.
That is not to say that every situation in our lives would be perfect that is to say however that our words would line up with that image. So how does Yahweh see us?
"No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us." (Romans 8:37)
"Because I master all things by The Messiah who empowers me." (Philippians 4:13)
"Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever." (Psalm 112:3)
"The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want." (Psalm 23:1)
"but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered." (Psalm 112:3b)
"A righteous man may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all;" (Psalm 34:19a)
"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." (1 Peter 2:9)
"Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place." (2 Corinthians 2:14)
"And the LORD shall make you the head, and not the tail; and you shall be above only, and you shall not be beneath; if that you hearken unto the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day, to observe and to do them:" (Deuteronomy 28:13)
So let's see a few things that Yahweh says about us, we are the head and not the tail, above and not beneath, your seed (children) shall be delivered, we always triumph, we always win, we always have the victory, we are a royal priesthood, yes! you are ROYALTY, your seed shall be delivered, you shall not want, and overwhelming victory is yours. This is just a start of scriptures that you can meditate on everyday when you get a chance. Meditate on them until they are engraved in your heart. There are plenty more scriptures that you can find on your own. If the problem is our image we have to go to the source who created us to find out what our image is.
Most importantly we were created in the image of Yahweh. So if your actions and words do not line up with the Word you are not living and embodying your true image. Enough of that Yahweh made me the way I am. No Yahweh made you in His image so if you are doing anything contrary to that image Yahweh did not place that in you.
Your image is reflected in the current state of your life. I do not know about you but I definitely have some work to do!
Be a blessing and be blessed,
