Your imagination is extremely powerful! God created you as a visual being. Choosing the right images in your mindís eye is important because your life will move in the direction of your thoughts. Visualization is simply seeing yourself the way you want to be. Itís creating a picture in your mind of you accomplishing your goals, overcoming obstacles, and fulfilling your God-given destiny. The Bible says in Proverbs that ďas a man thinks in his heart, so is he.Ē The way you see yourself in your mindís eye, over time, will drop down into your heart. If youíll create a picture in your imagination of something you want or a dream coming to pass and keep it in front of you, then you will move in that direction. Get up every morning and picture yourself succeeding! Picture yourself healthy and whole! Picture yourself and your family not only being blessed, but being a bigger blessing to others. If youíll keep the right images in front of you and always submit them to the Lord through prayer and thanksgiving, God promises that nothing will be impossible to you!
