Here’s what I want you to do. Today is the day to pull out all the stops. Today is the day to throw away the negativity and every negative “what if?” Today is the day to let your imagination soar. Today I want you to imagine a better world. Better yet, today I want you to imagine our part in making a better world. Think about that thing that makes you say “someone should do something about that…” Now imagine you’re that someone. What would you do? What is the change you would like see? Imagine a world where that change has been made. What does it look like? What would you do? Imagine every limitation between you and that dream has bee torn down. It’s gone, nothing stands in your way. What would you be doing today?
You see this is imagination properly used. Imagination allows us to see a brighter future and say, “Why not?” God gave you the ability to imagine for a reason, and I believe this is it. To see the solution and to be a part of it, to do good in our world. This is a big part of why we were created. Ephesians 2:10 tells us this, “For we are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do.” This is our purpose and while there will still be obstacles, some of the greatest obstacles are the misused imaginations that keep us from ever getting started. Imagining those obstacles gone will give you a clearer view of what will happen if you power through them, in Christ, to the goal. God makes the impossible possible and imagination helps us to make those things only we can see, the invisible, visible.
I can’t promise the actual obstacles will be removed. I can’t promise you success but here’s what God promised. He who began a good work in you, will carry it through to completion in the day of Christ Jesus. Sometimes I believe God begins those works in our imagination. So what do you imagine, in your deepest, most consecrated imagination. When you open your heart to God and your mind to what He is doing, what do you imagine?
Now pray and then take the first step in making it reality. This is imagination properly used.
Imagine a better world and work toward it.
