More Than Imagination


Sometimes I think we get to thinking God is a thought in our imagination and that thinking keeps Him from being a “real” God to us who sees our needs, sympathizes with our weakness, and empowers us to live every day in victory.   There may be a couple of reason this happens. First of all, we live in a world that doesn’t acknowledge our God as being the true God and they present Him as just another mystical “thought” and not a reality.  Secondly,  it could be that we are so shallow in our understanding of God that the deep, deep relationship He wants with us is not progressing because of our lack of letting God get closer to us.  Or it could be that our perception of life is not infused with the kind of faith that makes God come alive in our thinking and reasoning.  When any of these happen, our faith is weakened and one thing leads to another and we are living a defeated life that was not intended by God.  Look at the following scripture and see how Paul addressed the perception we should have of God.  This Scripture will basically answer the whole question about how real God is to us.  Ephesians 3: 20-21 God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.

If the enemy can do anything to thwart this process of growth in our lives, he will try to cause us to doubt the reality of God and the reality of His present power in our present situations.  The enemy wants to put a wedge between us and our Heavenly Father, and that wedge is stategically placed to do the most harm in our thinking about who God is.  Moses when called to tell who gave the instructions to the children of Israel was given this word by God about who He is.  In Exodus 3:14 14 God said to Moses, “I-AM-WHO-I-AM. Tell the People of Israel, ‘I-AM sent me to you.’”  That may seem a little cryptic to you, but it shouldn’t.  The great I AM is the beginning and end and the very substance of our faith itself.  God is far beyond our wildest dreams as written in the Ephesians 3:20 scripture.  Beyond means we don’t see all of Him, but we can trust Him and know that He is in the process of revealing Himself more and more to us.

If you want to experience the reality of God then you need to clear your mind of worldly wisdom and thinking and retrain your thoughts “in faith” by getting into God’s Word and allowing Him to speak to you and affirm you to live in faith and let God “speak into your life.”  There seems to be a new phrase used by many Christians where we say “I want to speak into your life.”  The correct use of the “speaking” into your life should be the speaking of God’s Word into a persons life, as that is the only pure truth and reasoning.  If you have stepped away from a “real” God in your thinking, then it is time to come back to a life built on faith in the “I AM.”
