In 1931 Albert Einstein said imagination is more important than knowledge.
What does this mean to us today? I truly believe your imagination is the tangible extent of how far we can go in this lifetime. Whether you realize it or not, you are always using your imagination. Ill give you an example; while you are taking a shower, you have some thoughts in your head. When you are walking to the subway, you have thoughts in your head. While you are sitting by a lake alone, you have thoughts in your head. When you are in your house at night, as you wash the dishes or cook, you have some thoughts in your head by default. Along with those thoughts, come with visual images.
The visual images are pieces of your imagination. So, since you have to use your imagination anyways, you might as well use it for your good. There is actual truth in knowing that your imagination becomes your reality. Steve Harvey said your imagination is a preview of God’s upcoming attractions in your life. Your imagination is God’s way of communicating with you personally, one on one. Only you can see it, and only you can be benefit from it. It’s Gods personal dialogue with you. Don’t downplay it.
As humans, we should not limit ourselves but what we see. That is like living life in a bottle. The limited knowledge we have is finite compared to the vastness of opportunity and possibility that God has for us. Sadly, many people don’t live up to their full potential because it’s safer to think smaller.
Looking back years ago, I was working in a dead 9-5 job, and I would daydream all day at work about being at home during office hours working from home, and being able to cook lunch in my kitchen during the day. Back then, I had no idea how this could be possible, especially since work at home jobs were virtually non-existent, and I had no idea’s thereof. Nevertheless, I couldn’t stop imagining myself in my own lovely home during the day cooking and working on my laptop. I had no idea back then, that I was using the power of imagination by default. Since then, I have caught myself doing this for both positive and negative things. Of course years later, when I became a real estate investor and salesperson, I tripled my income, and worked less than half the time – all from home. I would cook my own food, and make my own schedule. It took me years later to discern the power of imagination in this specific example. God is faithful.
I believe God puts the desire in our hearts, and its up to us to walk by faith. The more we imagine something, the more fuel we put behind bringing it into existence. It’s our method of telling God we believe in our dreams. The truth is, the dream already exists, along with a way to attain it. We give it power when we walk by faith. It pleases God to know we want to live up to out full potential, because that’s what he wants for us. He is a God of abundance, as Jesus mentioned several times in the bible. Your imagination is the real life God has for you; its his vision he had for you before you were born. Your imagination is the most powerful sense you have, for with it you co-create with God for things unseen and otherwise unattainable.
Surely your imagination is your most powerful faculty.
