Found Under Fathers
Speaking the Destiny of Your Child
George Foreman was a two-time heavyweight boxing champion of the world. In his book, God in My Corner, Foreman explains how his father pointed him to that destiny as a small boy:
When I was a small boy, my father planted a seed of greatness in my mind about my future. As we played, he often raised my hands over my head as if I had just won a boxing match, and heíd shout, ďGeorge Foreman, heavyweight champion of the world! Stronger than Jack Johnson. Hits like Jack Dempsey!Ē Even though I didnít understand what heavyweight champion of the world meant, he planted an idea in my mind that eventually became a reality.
Itís incredible that he declared those things about me, almost like a prophecy about my future. Itís even more amazing that I would not only become heavyweight champion, but also come back from retirement and win it a second time twenty years later. My father started proclaiming my destiny when I was only four years old and continued saying it until I was a teenager. (George Foreman, God In My Corner, Nashville: Thomas Nelson, 2007, p.122)
