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!
What you're facing today may seem bigger, stronger or more powerful than you can handle, but don't be intimidatedóthe Creator of the universe has put His favor on your life, and you cannot be defeated!
In this inspiring message, Joel will teach you how to tap into God's amazing favor in your life through expanding your faith and creating new thoughts. 1 Peter 1:13 says, "Hope to the end for the divine favor that is coming." You can have hope today! Favor is on the way. One touch of God's favor can turn any situation around.
Our memory is very powerful. What we choose to remember will determine what type of life we are going to live.
Are you reliving all your hurts, disappointments or negative memories? Let Joel encourage you to make the switch and focus on the good things God has done in your life in this encouraging message. Psalm 77:11-12 says, "I recall all you have done, O LORD; I remember your wonderful deeds of long ago. They are constantly in my thoughts. I cannot stop thinking about your mighty works."
If you will get into the habit of remembering the good things God has done in your life, then you will have the faith, courage and confidence to step into the amazing future God has in store. When your mind is going in the right direction, your life will go in the right direction!
God wants to show you an abundant increase of favor, but if you're not releasing your faith, it will limit what He can do. That's why Joel wants to teach you in this empowering message how to develop a favor mentality.
As you develop a favor mindset and affirm declarations over your life like, "God's favor gives me an advantage and is bringing success. God's favor is making my crooked places straight. I am at the right place at the right time," then you will see God's favor in your life like never before. You will see God show up and do amazing things, and He will take you higher than you thought possible!
We all go through challenges, disappointments, things that are not fair. It's easy to let that overwhelm us and think, "This is too much. I can't raise this child. I can't deal with this illness; this traffic is going to drive me crazy."
In this inspiring message, you will be reminded that nothing that comes your way in life is too much for you. You don't have to get upset because things don't go your way. You have the power to stay calm. When you stay in faith, God will cause all things to work out for your good. Let this message give you the strength and spiritual tools to stay encouraged during life's trials. You'll be inspired by the accounts of others who've walked before you, who faced trials, stood in their faith and saw God bring them out greater than they could ever imagine.
Relationships are a gift from God, but they can keep us from our destiny if they are out of balance.
In this eye-opening message, Joel will teach you how to take inventory of your relationships and build healthy boundaries. Many people today are overextending themselves, trying to keep others happy by meeting all of their wishes and demands. But that doesn't have to be you. Learn how to take charge of your life and surround yourself with those who build you up, not bring you down, so that you can become everything God has created you to be.
