Your imagination can either work for you, or it can work against you. The mind is a powerful tool that can either lead you toward your dreams or away from them. Where is your mind leading you?
Your God-given imagination is creative, ambitious, loving, and compassionate. Your God-given dreams are inspiring, motivating, and exciting. In fact, your imagination is only being used in the way it was designed when it's surrendered to inspiration from God.
Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Now lets compare that definition to the definition of imagination, which is “forming mental images of things not present to the senses.” Notice they are very similar. You might even say that our imaginations are built on faith. Your positive imagination is where hope is conceived!
So if we are going to take our hope back so that we can become dreamers of God-sized dreams, we have to surrender our imaginations to God in the same way we surrender our lives to Him in faith when we become followers of Christ.
Is your imagination surrendered to God, or is it still working against you, leading you into the wilderness?
God can do more than we can imagine, but your imagination can become suppressed and work against you when you’re only focused on the worst-case scenarios, the what-could-go-wrongs, and other huge obstacles.
It's time to shift your focus, and cling to God and His promises. They are true. Focus on what HE can do. He will take care of you if you allow Him to work through your life. It’s your choice. Today, would you choose to surrender your imagination to God, and prepare to experience His power in your life?
