Could you imagine?


Can you imagine?

As little as 3,4,5 we  can all understand watch a child use their imagination…we might tend to ignore, or see it as a light matter, but in actual fact that is ripe age to start to develop , or encourage that child to live out their dreams.  All too often we have our adult peer’s come along , and with their great intentions they try to steer us away from what we passionately want to pursue with all our hearts!!

So lets go back to the book of beginnings, and take a look at Genesis 1 (Genius)

Genesis 1

Amplified Bible (AMP)

1 In the beginning God (prepared, formed, fashioned, and) created the heavens and the earth.

The earth was without form and an empty waste, and darkness was upon the face of the very great deep. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters.
 I want to talk today about your imagination inspired by God…a lot of good meaning people use their imagination for all sorts of good & bad reason's, of course this goes without say!

If an individual understood the power of their belief system, and how their belief system can bring about supernatural circumstances on to their "Natural" circumstances then nothing will be impossible for them.

 Matthew 17-20
Jesus Heals a Boy with a Demon
19Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, "Why could we not drive it out?" 20And He said to them, "Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.21"But this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.


Let's take a closer look at a bunch of people in the old testament, that were capable of building a skyscraper, in order to get to God (apparently) their motive was to try and fight with God. God called it the tower, "the tower of babel" in other words, babel defined meant a group of people getting together unified in one accord, and nothing was impossible for them

They had three major ingredients that made them successful!

A) they had one language
B) they were unified
C) what ever they imagined they could do

Genesis 11:1-9

New International Version (NIV)

The Tower of Babel

11 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. As people moved eastward,[a]they found a plain in Shinar[b] and settled there.
They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”
But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”
So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. That is why it was called Babel[c]—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.

If you have your mind steadfast on God you can imagine all sorts of things in and through Gods perspective….cause remember we have an enemy out there that wants our minds tuned into the imagination of failure…and fear of what could happen, see your belief system tuned into fear will bring about what you fear, much like superstitious, what comes to pass? is the person believing if they walk under a ladder they will receive bad luck.

See, if you have a desire or a greater picture of where you want to be futuristically, than this will unfold as you begin your journey with God …mostly by being in His perfect will, He will begin to fulfil your Devine destiny, and will surely guide you in  the straight path like a coach.

Definition of imagination:

a. The formation of a mental image of something that is neither perceived as real nor present to the senses.

b. The mental image so formed.

c. The ability or tendency to form such images.

2. The ability to confront and deal with reality by using the creative power of the mind; resourcefulness.
 

Look, at what genesis is saying …He…who???  The spirit of the lord….He did what?? He prepared…and formed…formed what….formed an image…and fashioned it …where in His mind.in His mind before he did what??? before He created the sky, the moon, the stars, animals, mankind.  Why Mankind? because we are born to be kinda like God...made in His Image, imagine, imagination!


Definition of fashioned:

To give a particular shape or form to; make: in the old times people fashioned tools from stones. To accommodate; adjust; adapt.

God had imagined that we were created and fashioned to adapt in the environment of how He created the earth, we were born for the runway, fashioned and designed especially to do like God, create, imagine, believe, and first, and foremost to respond back to Him as our maker, with thanksgiving!


You know…by you meditating on the word of God…you begin to form an image in your mind…of what ??  Of the impossible…prepared…prepared for who???   Prepared for you by the one Who formed you!!!

  Genesis 1:26

Amplified Bible (AMP)

26 God said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth

Let us….do what??? Make man in our image….after our likeness….(who is sorely mad over that?) who know that because your look like your  Father… that someone is not happy, and will do everything to stop you from imagining that you can do and be like your Father!! that's right 
Satan.
Revelations 12-16 But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17 Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.  

Let’s go back to what God said…let us make mankind after our Image…He God has prepared you….formed you and fashioned you from the beginning…..you have got massive potential if you can only receive how much God loves you!

Wowowoowowow!!!!  No wonder…why the devil has had it in for you me…his whole strategy is kill steal and destroy and more over divide marriages, and cause such chaos…that when people think of agreeing unified their imagination will cause them to think alike, believe alike and unified enough to bring to pass all that God has intended for His people!


John 1-1 in the beginning was the word….in the beginning you were in Gods imagination…you were in His thought's he was planning ..forming …preparing…and fashioning you before he placed you in your mothers womb…so if you were from the beginning…you better start imagining Gods Word in your heart come to pass.

Jeremiah 1-5

4Now the word of the LORD came to me saying,5"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations."6Then I said, "Alas, Lord GOD! Behold, I do not know how to speak, Because I am a youth."
I don't know about you , but that's love un-conditional!

Ephesians 3:20

Amplified Bible (AMP)
20 Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]—
The Message translation Ephesians 3-20
 20-21 God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.
Need I say anymore, go ahead and Imagine.  Imagine your loved ones saved, imagine God using you powerfully to save the lost and hurting, imagine God blessing you financially, so that you can fund what God is doing on the earth....IMAGINE A NATION COMING TOGETHER UNDER GOD UNIFIED!
