Imagination is a powerful force which affects all of us every day. The first Biblical reference to imagination is Genesis 11:6.
“And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.”
Imagination is defined by the dictionary as: 1. The act or power of forming a mental image of something not present to the senses or physical reality; 2. Creative ability.
In other words, something presently UNSEEN in physical reality. Does this sound familiar?
An image is a physical likeness and not necessarily a physical reality. When someone speaks words or you read words or descriptions, you form images in your mind. If I tell you that I saw a black and white cow standing beside a big red barn, your mind searches for that picture. Most likely you will form an image from the last red barn you saw in person or photos and combine it with a black and white cow you saw somewhere. Your image will be somewhat different from mine, but the essence will be similar.
So when we speak words or write words, we transmit images. Then we use words to describe or transmit those images to others. We are creating something that may be presently UNSEEN in physical reality. But the speaking of them and the imaging of those ideas and concepts sets a creative power in motion that can cause a manifestation in physical reality.
God said, “…now nothing they have imagined to do will be impossible to them.” AMPC
Imagine what your life would look like if you dedicated yourself to discovering what God has said about you in His Word… what His sworn covenant committed Him to do for you as Abraham’s seed and heir of that promise. (Galatians 3:16, 29) What image would that paint? What confidence would you have? This confidence and persuasion would enable you to stand against sickness, stress, financial lack and mental distress. You have a legal standing in heaven and earth based on God’s Word and your obedience to it!
Imagine your life as a living manifestation of God’s Promise!
God Bless You,
