Your imagination is the thing that allows you to see the future before it happens.

# 1       Imagination is not bad, evil or unproductive. . .but we may be.

Romans 1:21 KJV

“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.”

Romans 1:21 GWT

“They knew God but did not praise and thank him for being God. Instead, their thoughts were total nonsense, and their misguided minds were plunged into darkness.”

2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV

“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”

# 2       Imagination allows you to live in fear or faith.

Matthew 6:27 TLB

“Will all your worries add a single moment to your life?”

Romans 4:17 KJV

“(as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did”

Hebrews 11:1 AMP

“NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].”

Hebrews 11:6 KJV

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

# 3       Imagination allows you to see things beyond the natural realm.

2 Kings 6:15 KJV

“And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do? “And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.”

2 Kings 6:17 KJV

And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.”

2 Corinthians 4:16 MSG

“So we're not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There's far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can't see now will last forever.”


# 4       Imagination allows you to turn your dreams into reality.
