“For those who live according to the flesh have their outlook shaped by the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit have their outlook shaped by the things of the Spirit.” Romans 8:5-6 NET
There is a war for your thoughts and for your imagination. God gave you the ability to imagine and shape your thoughts. He gave you the ability to imagine your day, your tomorrow, your future.
Many people believe that you can’t control your thoughts or the direction of them but that is not what the Bible says in the verse above.
The imagination nourished by the Spirit of God is life and peace.
The imagination shaped by the flesh is fear and death.
The thing is, you get to choose.
You have free will and God will never take it from you.
What you think, how you think is up to you.
This is not about creating your future with positive thoughts. This is about consciously choosing to fix your mind on Jesus Christ and allowing Him to shape your outlook.
“Do not be conformed to this present world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may test and approve what is the will of God – what is good and well-pleasing and perfect.” Romans 12:2 NET
You have permission, my friend, to take a mental vacation from fear and set your imagination free to dream some God-sized dreams today.
Where is your head?
What is it filled with?
What does it mean for you to set your imagination free and let God dream for your life?
