“For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster to give you a future and a hope”
(Jeremiah 29:11 AMP)
In Mark, chapter five, there was a woman who had an issue of blood for twelve years. The scripture says, “She had gone to many physicians and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse. When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press and touched his garment. For she said, if I may touch his clothes, I shall be whole. And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.” The Amplified Bible says she had heard the reports concerning Jesus…and she kept saying (verses 27, 28).
Here’s the point this example. You cannot enjoy the “Promises” and the “Plenty” of God’s plan without first destroying the ungodly images that have been sown into your subconscious. An inner image of lack will never produce an outer manifestation of plenty and abundance. An inner image of sickness will never produce an outward manifestation of healing and wholeness. The woman’s continuous confession of her future, “if I may touch his clothes, I shall be whole,” destroyed the “grow worse” image that was built inside her through constantly hearing and meditating an evil report that she was getting worse.
Remember, what we can’t see, we cannot become. This is why meditation is so important. Meditation is the way to secure your victory without struggle.
Dear God, thank you for the good plans You have for me. I pray that every ungodly self-image and thought in me is destroyed and I can “see” the promises and plenty in Your Word and believe they are for me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
