In the message yesterday our guest preacher spoke about raising our expectation levels, about raising our hope, in order to see better results in our lives.
As well as speaking from the Word of God he spoke about various scientific experiments that highlighted the placebo effect.
This is when an inert pill (pill with no drugs or therapeutic effect) improves the health of a patient.
It has been shown that by simply raising the expectation that healing will take place actually results in healing.
This was of course first highlighted in the Bible before scientists “discovered” it.
As he thinketh so is he is a favourite phrase of mine (Proverbs 23 v 7).
It is a basic Biblical principle that the direction of our lives, including healing, is determined by how we think (if you read my DIGs you will know I write about this often).
The placebo effect is a direct result of this Biblical principle, a direct result of how God designed and created man.
Another example is when the woman with the issue of blood said she would be healed if she could only touch the hem of the garment of Jesus.
I believe that there was no intrinsic healing power in that piece of material, but her expectation levels and hope was raised as she truly believed she would be healed.
Is there a healing that you need today?
Do you have another need that must be met?
Raise your expectation levels, raises your hope, think in a positive manner and “see” your need being met in your mind.
Think that you are well, think you are in prosperity, think that you have your ideal job; think that whatever you need has been provided and that you have it.
Doing this will mean you gave more chance of seeing it manifest in your life.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that your Word says that as I think so am I, thank you for the power of creative thoughts that you designed us to have”.
Proverbs 23 v 7…..As he thinketh in his heart, so is he……
