Take Your Faith from Imagination to Manifestation

Print

The imaginations God has blessed us with are amazingly powerful tools. We have the creative authority to bring to pass the things God has promised us in His Word. Visualizing in our mind’s eye what He has declared, and following up with our own verbal declarations and acts of faith, bring about amazing manifestations. We can call those things that be not as though they were.

Our imaginations have the capacity to work for us or against us, depending on who we let influence it; therefore, we must be on guard that the enemy doesn’t gain access to this gift. Not too long after God created the earth, the people imagined that they could build a tower that would reach all the way to heaven. The spirit that suggested this building program to them was working in direct contradiction to the Spirit of God.  The people’s insistence on relying on their own self-efforts wasn’t God’s will, and their plans were frustrated.

This negative use of imagination is mentioned again in the New Testament when we’re cautioned against embracing thoughts, concepts, and ideas contrary to God’s Word. In our battle against the enemy, our weapons aren’t carnal, but spiritual. We must be vigilant in casting down imaginations and every philosophy that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.

Using our imaginations for good, not evil, is God’s will. Imagination differs from intellect because when we imagine something, we see it through our spiritual, not our physical, eyes; God wants to enlighten the eyes of our heart. Believing that we will see the manifestations of what God has promised enables His unlimited favor to free our imaginations of all borders, boundaries, and limits. When what we visualize by faith lines up with what God says, worldly limitations cease to exist.  

Prayer:

God, the imaginations You gave us allow us to see ourselves receiving what You want us to have. Your Word teaches us the proper use of this spiritual weapon. Thank You for empowering us to visualize for ourselves what You envision for us. In Jesus’ name, amen.
