Imagine Going for It!

10 Jan

It’s a New Year! Thank God, that we are all blessed to see 2016. What was most memorable for you about 2015? Praise pause – if it was horrible, thank God that He brought you through it, despite the difficulty. If your most memorable event in 2015 was awesome, thank God for that wonderful thing He did that still has the ability to make you smile.

It’s time now for a new thing (Isaiah 43:19). That New thing will come to you, but it won’t come simply by the resolution that you may have written down or spoken. It will come to you as you seek God first (prayer) and then take the necessary steps to see it come to pass. You see, God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that we ask or think. But it is according to the power that works in us. (Ephesians 3:20).

What is the power that’s working in you? Is fear the power that hinders new things from coming forth in your life? I’ve heard it said that fear is imagined. But whatever you meditate upon (even if it is fear) has the possibility of becoming your reality.

So what is the great new thing that you can imagine happening in your life? Instead of allowing fear to invade your thoughts, imagine the new thing whether it’s weight loss, a new job, or a stronger marriage.

After imagining that new thing and praying about it, what steps must you take to see it come to pass? Keep in mind that God has not given you a spirit of fear, but He has given you power, love, and a sound mind. Faith in the Lord releases you from the bondage and torment of fear, allowing you to defeat the fear and take the steps needed to bring the new thing to pass. (II Timothy 1:7, Romans 8: 15, Matthew 11:12).

Remember, GOD is ABLE to do exceedingly abundantly above all that you can ask or think according to the power that works in you. You desire a new thing and so does He. Imagine that! But don’t stop there. Go for it!
