Your Mental Picture

Traveling gives you an opportunity to see various beautiful buildings designed with great creativity. As I look around at all the construction going up in communities and business sections of many cities, I notice that the buildings have different beautiful architectural lines. Behind every architecturally design there has been someone with a vision, an ability to think about or plan the future. One with an imagination or wisdom to take nothing and create something, to take an empty space and fill it with physical creativity for all to see.

Just as the architect draws a picture before the building begins, every miracle begins with a mind-photograph. It’s good when we use our memory to replay past victories. And it’s wonderful when we use our imaginations to pre-play miracles that our hearts desire from the Lord. These mental pictures are the seeds for ideas, energy, and change.

Genesis 15:5 (NIV) states that God took Abram outside and said, “Look up at the stars and count the stars if indeed you can count them. So shall your offspring be.” Just as God was with Abram in Genesis, that same God is with us today. The following quote by Pat Summit is about being a winner: “Winning is fun, but winning is not the point, never letting up is the point. Never being satisfied with what you have done is the point.”

In short, do not settle for yesterday’s victories. There is a more to be done. Never quit reaching, never quit being a visionary, never quit believing that the seemingly impossible is possible. Never let warfare stop you. Always make the extra effort to be a champion and try one more time. Pursuit shows compassion and reaching is the first sign of trust in God. God always has more in store for the person who is willing to pursue God’s best.
