FOUR STRATEGIES TO IMPROVE YOUR SITUATION

I HAVE A CORRECT IMAGE OF WHO WE ARE

You can see yourself in your situation so long that the enemy has convinced you of the image that you are unloved, not worthy, or will never be delivered.

The woman with the issue of blood could have seen herself unworthy to get the healing that she deserved. The woman was broke, busted, and disgusted.

However, somewhere in this woman she saw an image of a whole and healthy woman. She got a revelation of who she could be and was.

II Corinthians 10:3-6

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.

Imaginations – mental reasoning or arguments in the mind to obey God’s Word.

The enemy is tricking many of you with of image that nothing will ever change. You can image living a better life and improving your life.

The correct image of who we are is in Genesis 1:27-29

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Blessed – empowered them

This is the image of who you are:

• I am a child of God

• A joint-heir with Christ Jesus

• A new creation in Christ Jesus

• A citizen of the Kingdom of God

Ephesians 2:6 - And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus

The woman deserved to be healed. Jehovah Rapah the Lord who heals came to her rescue.

She saw herself improving her situation if she could just touch his garment.

When she confessed that she touched the hem of His garment, He said “Daughter”. He confirmed who she was.
