Today's Daily Encounter

The Power of Imaging - Part I

Seeing Jesus walking on the water, Peter said: "'Lord,
if it's You ... tell me to come to You on the water.'
'Come,' He said. Then Peter got down out of the boat,
walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he
saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink,
cried out, 'Lord, save me!'"1

I'd dare say that most of us could walk a
twelve-foot-long by one-foot-wide plank that was on the
ground. But suspend it thirty feet up in the air
between two buildings, suddenly, for most of us
(including me), it becomes a terrifying, nigh on
impossible task.

Why?

Like Peter, because we are afraid of falling our faith
is swallowed up by fear. We suddenly see ourselves
plunging, and what we picture happening paralyzes us.
In many, if not most, instances, what we imagine, see
or visualize in our mind is what we make to happen.

In other words, if you imagine yourself falling off
that plank, you're much more likely to make it happen.
But if you see yourself confidently walking across it
safely to the other side, you will be able to do it.

Life's like that. If you see yourself as being loving
and lovable, you will love others and be loved by them.
If you see yourself as confident and successful, you
will act accordingly and be successful. If, on the
other hand, you see yourself as unlovable, insecure,
and a failure, you will act in an unlovable manner and
set yourself up to fail.

Thus, a major key to successful living is to visualize
exactly the type of person you want to become and what
you want to make of your life--see it in your mind's
eye as already happening, and believe, with God's help,
that it is possible.

This kind of visualizing, or imaging as it is called,
is a powerful means of help for overcoming problems,
healing of sicknesses, achieving goals, improving
relationships, and changing one's life.

To be continued...

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, when I have to walk across
life's difficult places, please help me to keep my eyes
fixed on You, and believe that You will hold my hand
lest I fall. Thank You for hearing and answering my
prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus's name, amen."

1. Matthew 14:28-30 (NIV).

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
