Genesis 15:5 Then the LORD took Abram outside and said to him, “Look up into the sky and count the stars if you can. That’s how many descendants you will have!”

God gave us an imagination for a reason. Like Abraham, God wanted us to imagine ourselves with His promises before they materialize.

God wants us to imagine ourselves healthy and healed from cancer, lupus, or acne. God wants us to see ourselves delivered from pornography, alcoholism, and the bondage of people’s opinions. God wants us to imagine ourselves with all our needs met, having the home and cars we desire, and having surplus to give to others.

Our imagination helps combat thoughts of doubt and unbelief because it may take some time before our desires manifest. However, if we can believe God’s Word about His promises and imagine ourselves with those promises, we’ll maintain the faith to eventually receive God’s promises.

Children are not the only ones who should use their imagination. Every believer should be using their imagination daily.
