Words transmit images. If you wanted to describe your car, you would use words to explain the make, model, and color of your vehicle. Even though the person you are speaking to may have never physically seen your car, they could recognize it because your words have transmitted an image. They can “picture” what your car looks like.

         One of the greatest things the Word of God provides for us is this: God’s Word transmits the image of who we are in Christ. When we give our attention to Ephesians 1:3, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:” we can recognize ourselves in Christ with all spiritual blessings. Because we focus on I Peter 2:24, “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” the image of righteousness and health has been transmitted to us. We can see it!

         The Word of God is supernatural. Every Word of God is full of power! God does not have any empty words. In fact, Hebrews 4:12 in the Amplified Bibles says, “For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power (making it active, operative, energizing, and effective). You need this effective, operative power to walk in the Father’s will for your life. You need this energizing Word to help you when you pray for your family.

         If a person is using their faith to pray for a loved one in addiction or crime, the situation at hand tries to control the image of the outcome. It becomes difficult for that person to pray in faith because they see an image of their loved one in handcuffs or in a hospital bed. The image of addiction haunts their prayer life until they are praying in desperation instead of faith. Don’t allow the situation to dominate the image in your spirit. The Word of God is full of power. The Word of God will transmit an image of your loved one protected, safe, yielded to God, and full of the life of Jesus Christ.

         God’s Word will never build false hopes or transmit an inaccurate image. Jesus declared in John 17:17 that God’s Word is truth. It is absolute truth. Truth has more authority and leverage than facts. The fact may be that your child is smoking meth. According to Isaiah 54:13, the truth is, “Great is the peace (a condition of nothing missing and nothing broken) of your child.”  We guard our hearts to keep the image of God’s Word as the light by which we live.

         Jesus Christ is the Word made flesh (John 1:14) Before Jesus came to the earth in the form of a man, He existed in the form of God’s Word. Look at what is said of Jesus in Hebrews 1:3 from the Amplified Bible, “He is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power. When He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high,” The Word of His power is still at work! His Word is propelling us into the will of God.

         In the same manner the Father framed the universe with words (Hebrews 11:3), we can frame our lives by speaking, proclaiming, and declaring the Word of God into our lives. You are going to say something. Out of the abundance of your heart, your mouth will speak. You might as well put some power in your mouth to initiate change. If you have purposefully placed God’s Word in your eyes and ears, it has flowed into your heart. Your heart can be fully flooded with God’s light-giving Word until the image of victory in you is greater than the image of failure your natural senses are seeing.

         Partner, I pray for you to receive the revelation of who you are in Christ in a greater level of understanding than ever before.
