Having faith has so much to do with what we envision. We don’t always realize it; sometimes, we think that having faith comes only through what we hear. But faith lives in our imagination. Imagination is a powerful tool, and what we dream of can become manifest.
What you hear has a way of affecting you too. “Faith does cometh by heareth.” That’s why what we hear can affect us.
At sixteen years old, while trying to cross the street on my way to school I was hit by a car. When some doctors predicted I would never walk again it crushed my spirit. But I had faith and heard God say that I would. Although I’m not walking the way that I did before my accident, it’s a miracle I can walk at all.
I’ve accomplished walking because I envisioned it. While in the hospital, I imagined myself walking even when I couldn’t sit for more than a minute. And now, all these years later, I never dreamt I would be able to use a treadmill machine or have the ability to walk up to a mile. My point is God will take you even further than what you’ve dreamt.
Culture teaches us that all we have are our five senses. We are taught that using our imagination is silly. There is so much beyond what you can see though. God lives in our imagination. It is the only way we can see him while we’re here, says famous pastor, Gregory Boyd.
World-famous physicists have even confirmed, that imagination is not a tool we can choose to use, it’s how we’re moving through life.✨
