Envisioning Your Own Well-Being

Reading Level: Leisurely

Are you your own worst enemy? Check what you believe  your life is destined for!

When you envision your present situation and then the rest of your life, what do you see? Do you see a life of continual lack, illness, struggle, and disappointments? Or instead, do you envision that you are destined for a good life, an effective, satisfying life? There is an old saying, “Be careful what you wish for.” Why do people say that? Because there is great power to your thoughts just as there is in your words. People who believe that they are destined for a satisfying, effective life are more aware of the right opportunities when they present themselves. Such people make better first impressions when meeting others and thus find better business connections. Their positive attitudes supply them with more creativity and energy. Their belief or envisioning of an effective life draws good experiences to them, such as described in the popular philosophy of the Law of Attraction.

Each of us should believe that we are destined for an effective, satisfying life because that is what God intends for us to have.

He says, “With long life will I satisfy you and show you my salvation (Ps. 91:16).” As is often mentioned in the news, due to the progress of science, people are living longer; but if that longer life is overwhelmingly filled with lack, illness, and struggle, that doesn’t fit into the category of the “satisfying” long life God said He would give you.

If your life has been filled with more than its share of disappointments, it is easy to fall into the trap of expecting more distressing situations with each passing day.

Don’t fight against your own well-being! Stop believing that you will never get a promotion, never be out of debt, never get to take a good family vacation, never be healthy. Stop the vicious cycle of expecting struggle; that mindset with its thoughts, decisions, and conversations will actually create them unnecessarily. As long as you do not envision that your life will be good, you will continue to make decisions based on doubt, keeping yourself in an unsatisfied life.

Start today by scrutinizing your thoughts. Eliminate all that expect illness, struggle, and disappointment. Throw out of your mind the doubts that the good you desire cannot happen. Listen to this powerful quote regarding the power of doubt, “He must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does (Jms. 1:6,7).” Since good comes from God (Jms. 1:17), this means the person who doubts won’t receive “anything” good from God! You receive what you believe! Let’s settle this in your heart once and for all. The end of the quote says that the person who doubts that he will receive a good, satisfying life is unstable in ALL his ways–not just in his spiritual life or family or finances or career. The doubter is unstable in ALL his ways!

I’ll ask you again? Are you your own worst enemy? If so, put doubt and disbelief behind you once and for all. Daily envision yourself to have the satisfying life God intends you to have!
