Our imagination is a god given gift. Gen 11:6 ‘Whatever man imagines he can achieve’. It is the ability to form a mental image of something not perceived with the natural senses. Our minds are the factory where the reality of our purposes are established through the gift of imagination. ‘As a partaker of His divine nature’, we have been created for greatness and not mediocrity. The ability to create is through our imagination and it should be fueled with excitement. What do we do to fuel our imagination? As your imagination mixes with excitement, difficult circumstances regarding the issue diminishes or is eradicated, boldness to proceed with rise. Imagination enables us to be confident of a reality beyond our experience or perceptions.
Faith is an act of imagination because you have not seen but yet you believe that it would happen. It is vision in the spiritual realm. Faith brings the unseen into the seen realm. Ask – Believe – Receive is the language of faith. Visualising or imagining the result is instrumental to receiving the answer. Do not visualise the problems or the obstacles. Do not speak negative about desires.
What is so important about Faith? Without Faith, it is impossible to please God, whoever comes to Him must believe that He is who he says he is and a re warder of those who please Him. The David and Goliath story illustrates the faith principle so well. David’ s past experiences and deliverance from dangerous situations was enough for him to put down Goliath. ‘Who is this uncircumcised philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God’ said David at the 40 day taunts that no one was able to respond to.
If the invisible world (unseen realm) is more real than the visible, what we see and feel with our senses are temporal. Imagination and confession are keys to drawing from the invisible. When we understand how to transcend the unseen world, living in the seen would be be easy. Dream big. ‘The person with big dreams is more important than the one with facts‘ – Albert Einstein. Form a clear mental picture of what you want to become, don’t force it but gently relax into it and keep it before you daily at waking and at retiring.
In conclusion, let’s learn to use our imagination, dream big. Do you have a revelation of what you can become but can’t see it with your natural eyes, use the power of your imagination. Through it , God’s purpose for your life can be manifested. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Thank your ‘Creator’ for the gift of imagination.
