If you’re God’s child, you don’t have to search for help. Help has come to you in the person, presence, power and grace of Jesus. – Paul David Tripp
“Finally arrive at the point in your life where, the power of God is stronger than anything else.” ~ Al Ross
You’ll find you have weak spots, we all do. Some areas of inconsistency in your character are opportunities for you to see Jesus face to face. If you’re like me, you’ll find need of His guidance. He wants to take you from strength to strength; from glory to glory.
Ephesians 3:20 tells you … “He wants to do above and beyond ALL that you could ever ask or think.” Remember an important point. It’s according to His work within you. You must allow Christ to work in you for Him to do great things through you.
I resently read a story about an “Imagination Station.” Each day as the kids enter a room, they begin by closing their eyes and entering into “imagination station” of their mind. There, they have no limits to what they can do. It is their one time to imagine more and … it is transforming the way they see the world.
Imagination is powerful because it invites you into a new story. Imagination is the force that takes you to places you have never been. Imagination welcomes the impossible.
The Bible says ‘As a man thinketh, so shall he become’. It also says ‘Without vision we perish’. You serve a God who wants to do even more with us than you could ever ask or imagine.
Henry Ford relied on imagination and belief. Walt Disney said that had he not seen Disneyland in his mind, the rest of the world would not have seen it on earth. Bill Gates first imagines his products before they become actual software that we rely on. And it would serve you well to remember that many of the world’s greatest people started with nothing and built empires. They had a dream and imagined into being.
“If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.“ ~ William Arthur Ward
Faith is an act of the imagination. And a healthy, vibrant imagination is crucial to the Christian life. You will likely disagree with these statements if you associate the imagination with delusion.
“Now to the one who can do infinitely more than all we can ask or imagine according to the power that is working among us.“ ~ Ephesians 3:20
“Then I sent to him, saying, There are no such things done as you say, but you imagine them out of your own heart.“ ~ Nehemiah 6:8
