“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” – Philippians 4:8
The surest way to sabotage the manifestation of our prayer is to engage in negative thoughts or imagination after you have prayed. It does not matter how long you pray and fast; if you are unable to maintain a positive thought or at least be hopeful that your desires will come through, you might not receive a positive result. The famous Albert Einstein once said; “imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world” If you are accustomed to reading Einstein’s works or statements throughout history, you would recall that every statement made by him was a product of experimentation. Einstein never made a public statement without proof of its correctness, at least, as it applies to him. One of the keys that launch us into the realm of opportunities is our imagination or thoughts. This is correct since imagination taps into the infinite power of the spiritual realm. Imaginations are daydreams – dreaming without sleeping, but they are powerful enough to make some things happen to us in reality. For imagination or thoughts to bring fortune to us, it must be creative or positive in nature. The power of innovation is creative imagination or positive thinking. Imagination encircles the world; this means there is no limit to what the mind of man can possibly conceive. What are you currently imagining would happen to you? Today’s scripture is telling us to think and imagine the positive things of life. Whatever we think about, dwell upon, and contemplate tends to be our mindset. Our mindset, in turn, defines our realities and that is a choice we can make. We cannot control circumstances, but we can control how we think about them. If we think of excellent things, we’ll tend to respond to life excellently. Remember, the human mind is wired to manifest things even without any formal or deliberate prayers. Therefore, in order to create a good life for yourself, you must change your thoughts and imagination from tales of woes or fear of death and think or imagine only peace, love, and harmony. Beloved, I want you to take note that you will become what you think about most of the time. If you allow your mind to dwell on negative thoughts and imaginations, you are very much likely to experience repeated bouts of anxiety and worries; but if you adopt a positive mindset, then you can rejoice in all things (1 Thessalonian 5:16) and give thanks for all things (1 Thessalonian 5:18) Starting from today, engage in positive imagination and see yourself in higher positions of breakthrough and fortune. The easiest way to remain focused on positive imagination is to continuously abide in the word of God because only then, will the Word of God abide in you (John 15:5, 7).
Father in the name of Jesus Christ, I ask this day for power to focus on your word. I abide in your word; therefore, I declare that my imaginations or thoughts are blessed. I decree that every ungodly reality created as a result of my weak thoughts and imagination must give way NOW and be completely dislodged from my life. Thank you, father, for your wonderful work of grace. AMEN.
