The power of Imagination

Good morning, imagine being on holiday today!, cites Albert Einstein who once said, “The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination”. In any creative endeavor, being able to use one’s imagination gives one the ability to generate new ideas or to take existing realities to create something new. It’s a fundamental skill which unleashes creativity, faith, learning skills, and even the path to invention.

Albeit, by implication if faith and imagination run parallel dreams should come true. Contrary to what Einstein said, Jesus says this in Luke 17:5 & 6 (GNB) The apostles said to the Lord, “Make our faith greater.” The Lord answered, “If you had faith as big as a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Pull yourself up by the roots and plant yourself in the sea!’ and it would obey you.

Now bring your imagination into play, imagine what God can do through you if your faith, as much as a mustard seed, could start changing lives around you. One’s faith, acted out of imagining the miracle, is the vehicle to the image of what is not seen yet but what is to become reality in through the most powerful that is eminent. Often one gives up on a thought, or possibility whereas if the idea was held onto by faith, it may have materialised. Therefore, your miracle can be what you once imagined.

Dear Lord, give me a spiritual imagination of faith, seeing things happen in the future because I believe God’s power can be released by my faith and in Jesus’ name. Amen. Dr Cliff Ferguson – Shalom Centurion.
