Imaginative faculty – mind by Godson


Imagination

Imagination refers to the action or process of forming new ideas, concepts, images of external objects without any immediate input of the senses.

Imagination which is one function of the mind shouldn’t be confused with thinking.
Imagination is a more structured, intentional and creative form of thought which are more likely to solve a problem or serve an intended purpose.

Your mind is that part of you that enables you to imagine through your thinking. Understand that it is within your capacity by the God Grace made sufficient in you to think constructively, creatively for a divine purpose.

Philippians 4:8 says
“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”.

But beware of the kind of thoughts you imagine. Think good things and your life will be good. Think bad things and you will continuously live in misery until you learn to consciously direct your thoughts. That is why you should be careful with what you imagine in your life everyday.

Proverbs 4:23 says “Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life”.

Your ability to imagine is your ability to choose how you want the spiritual to direct your physical life that is why God has given you dominion over all things. Understand that it is within your jurisdiction to cast evil and bring excess good which truly it starts from your thoughts.

Your imagination is a conscious link between your physical and all that is in the spiritual. It is the tool you use to tap from all that is infinite and limitless whether good or bad, its your choice. That is why the bible says we should guild our heart with all vigilance.

Let us learn to acknowledge the abundance, good health and riches that God had made in store for us through our thoughts and prayers. Something is made available to you only when you acknowledge, accept or have a conviction that it is there already (or that it is already yours) and that is why faith is very important.

Mark 11:23-24 says “Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours”.

FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR, EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN.

I want you to pause, take a moment and look around you and take time to realize that all you see around you was first conceived through a person’s thought – the books, chairs, phones, houses etcetera. Those things were constructively thought into being for the enhancement of human life and for solving problems. But remember, imagining only will not bring things into manifestation. You have to pray for God’s direction, plan and execute according to his will for your life.

Jeremiah 17:10 says “I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds”.

It’s my prayer this evening that God will give us the strength to diligently seek him so that as we live in accordance to his words and directives, our mind shall continually be renewed so that we shall grow in understanding and think more intelligently and creatively for the propagation of the gospel and the manifestation of all the good he had made in store for his children. Amen.

Discouraged, but not alone


Discouraged but not alone

Discouraged means to make someone feel less confident, enthusiastic, and positive about something, or less willing to do something

Many believers are giving up on God because many are serving God based on contract and not in truth and in deed.

Don’t question God question yourself; don’t blame God blame yourself. God has integrity. Everyone is responsible for the outcome of his/her life.

Numbers 23:19 KJV
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it ? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

*Reasons not to be discouraged*

(1). God is always at present – Many are sincere but only few are sensitive.

The lack of the consciousness of God’s presence is the major cause of discouragement.

Many are victims of ignorance more than anything else.

Matthew 28:20 KJV
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Gehazi was almost paralyzed with fear when the Syrian army came to arrest Elisha. But when his eyes popped open He could see the angels of God that encamped them, he was at rest.

Seeing into the realm of the spirit will always confer rest in the life of a believer.

(2). The future is great – that ugly situation is not going to remain like that forever. There is always a light at the end of a tunnel.

There is no weeping that is permitted to go beyond a night. Where you are is smaller than where God is taking you to.

Psalm 30:5 KJV
For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Habakkuk 2:3 KJV
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

(3). Complains and worries will never move God – understand this truth, God is only moved by our faith.

Hannah was fretted and worried. Until she put a seal on her request, went home rejoicing her desire was not in view.

God hates Murmurers and grumblers. These category of people are programmed for destruction.

1 Corinthians 10:10 KJV
Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

Philippians 2:14 KJV
Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

Murmurings will further mess up your situations while complains will further complicate your matters.

(4). Continuity is the golden rule – Continuous, tireless and unrepentant obedience are the hallmarks of a true believer.

James 1:25 KJV
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein , he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Both in dry and raining seasons you must continue in your covenant walk with God. You must remain committed to His instructions. That’s the way it works. It works like fire!

Your tomorrow is determined by the level of your obedience today. (Phil.2:7-10)

Habakkuk 3:17-18 KJV
Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: [18] Yet I will rejoice in the Lord , I will joy in the God of my salvation.

Finally, God is not a taskmaster, He is a paymaster. God does not use people; He blesses people.

Psalm 126:5-6 KJV
They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. [6] He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him .

Your mind can either make you or break you

(4). You are what you think

Proverbs 23:7 KJV
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

Listen to this: you can’t think of failure today and wake up tomorrow to see success.

You can’t think of poverty and wake up tomorrow with a life full of abundance and prosperity.

Everybody gets what they think.

This is divine setting: God can’t break this principle because of you

(5). God answers thought just like He answers prayer.

Ephesians 3:20 KJV
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

For instance, the woman with the issue of blood in the bible didn’t had to pray before she took her healing. God answered her thought (thought preceded action).

Matthew 9:21-22 KJV
For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. [22] But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.

(6). A future that you can’t picture don’t expect to be featured in it

Whatever that you can see from Genesis to Revelation through the instrumentality of faith can be yours.

Genesis 13:14-16 KJV
And the Lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: [15] For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever. [16] And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.

God did not expect Abraham to see all his seed; He must be talking about another kind of eye. “The Imaginative faculty.”

Super human project like the pyramid of Egypt, Hanging garden of Babylon and the light house of Pharaoh were accomplished through the power of Imaginative faculty.

I wish you could understand how powerful your Imaginative faculty is

You need to renew your mind. Let there be a casting down of all mind debris, traditions and cultural orientations.

God has the final says

Whatever the scripture says concerning that issue is the final

Man’s view is a man’s view

Job 22:29 KJV
When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.

I will stop at this junction.

Imaginative faculty – mind


Your mind can either make you or break you

Mind is the element of a person that enables them to be aware of the world and their experience, to think and feel the faculty of consciousness and thought.

Mind is someone ability to think and reason: the intellect. Synonyms: Power of thought, mentality, perception, brain power and reasoning

 Why must someone renew his/her mind?

(1). The mind is the battle ground. This is where all the battles of life are fought and won. The devil’s object of attack is the mind so also the word of God can only gained entrance into you via the mind. That is why the scripture says,

Proverbs 4:23 KJV
Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

(2). Ever since the fell of Lucifer, men thinking pattern have been evil continuously.

Genesis 6:5 KJV
And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

This is why you must deprogram yourself from this negative pattern into the positive pattern. Watch out for what you allow to stay on your mind.

In the realm of the spirit, any thought that you allows to hold grip on you is regarded accomplished.

Your mind can either make you or break you.

Great minds discuss ideas

(3). God thinks and He thinks positively

Jeremiah 29:11 KJV
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

3 John 1:2 KJV
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

Understand this: the law of the universe demands that every natural force duplicate itself into its offspring.

During creation, God subjected Himself to the same principle.

that creepeth upon the earth. [27] So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

The son of a goat is a goat; a cow can’t give birth to a dog. Likewise in living plant, a mango tree can’t produce a cashew fruit.

It follows that the sons and daughters of God are gods.

Psalm 82:6 KJV
I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

If your father thinks and He thinks positively; you have no choice than to think positively.

This is different from the positive thinking of psychology. It is drawing life from the fountain of revealed truth.

 

 

Mind


Imaginative faculty

 

Dictionary meaning;Mind mean your thought; your way of thinking or feeling.

The story of Lazarus in Luke 6 is that of a man who closed his mind. He left the giant inside of him idle. I want you to know that you re the sole determinant of your height in life.

Every potential finds full expression through the mind. The size of your mind will determine your height in life. If you close the door of your mind or limit it to small dream, you will discover that your potential will be dormant, until you open up.

The best of Lazarus desire was to eat the crumbs that fell from the table. His dream was limited to crumbs. He never could fathom his becoming a rich man. You cannot go higher than your desire in life. Your potential find full expression when your mind is clear and open.

Luke 16:21say and desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man table:moreover the dog came and licked the sores

Many mind are preoccupied with myopic vision. Romans 12 enjoin us to consistently renew our mind with the word of God. The dream you had yesterday, which to you is very big,might be too small for your today. Don’t be stagnant. Upgrade and renew your desires in life.

Sorry I am going for prep class continue when am back

OK I am back.

 

great mind 2

Poverty, sickness, confusion and stagnancy are offshoot of a sick mind. 3 john 2  says, “I wish above all things that you prosper and be in good health even as your soul prosper. ”

Your destiny in life is subject to the state of your mind. If your mind is healthy with the word of God, you will have healthy dreams.

The prosperity of your mind is the prosperity of your dream. The mind is like a water pipe. If it is not clean, it will pollute your desires. Once the desires are low and rotten, the potential becomes weak. Clean up your mind with the word of God. Let the past go. Give room for the new things God wants you to do.

Isaiah 43:18-19says-Remember not the former thing,neither consider the things of old. Behold I will do a new thing: now it shall spring forth: shall you not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and river in desert.
Help God to help you. He will not open your mind for you. You must sit down with the spirit of God through your mind, to believe the impossible. When you read the bible, believe the miracles are real. Stop saying they are fairy tales.
Open your mind to the greatest of God.

when your mind is able to catch how great God is,this greatness unconsciously begin to rub off on you. You will begin to attempt the impossible.

A closed mind is the gateway to your inheritance.

Ephesians 3:20 summarizes it all. It says- Now unto him that is able to do exceedingly abundant above all that we ask or think, ACCORDING to the power that works in us.
Note the word ‘according’.

It means in proportion to going back to the scripture, it means that God exceeding power can only be in operation, through the power that works in us.

It therefore mean that God cannot work outside what man makes available for him.

It is pertinent that you work on your mind regularly, knowing that the mind is God testing ground.

The greatest miracle that can take place in the life of a man is for him to allow his mind to believe that things are possible with God. When your mind begin to operate on this truth, a higher force is released to push you to the realm of exploit. Let your mind open up to possibilities.

Many have closed their minds from attempting great things because the world has tagged those exploits as impossible. This is the key you need to open all doors.

All the people who invented and discovered great things started them in their minds. When the mind is in agreement,the head begins to function. Every signal of progress is flashed from the mind.

Regulate your mind to meditate and dwell on high things. Never allow it to stay low. Staying low and inactive will bring you low. This will be a disservice to God because God is not low.

You have been made in the image of God. That means you carry the divine potential inside you. You cannot afford to live less than the great opportunities the word of God offer you.

Understanding the power of faith


A graphic of understanding the power of faith

What is faith?

Let first define faith by stating what faith is not:

  • Faith is not waiting.
  • Faith is not a believe system.

Faith is putting God’s word to work.

“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your ownselves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.” Jms.1:22-25

“Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works….But with thou know, O vain a man, that faith without works is dead.” Jms.2:17-18/20

Faith is an action. It means to take scriptural calculated step in all spheres of life’s affairs

“And behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment. For she said within herself, if I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.” Mat.9:20-21

A graphic re

Why do I need faith?

  • You need faith because faith is our authentic life wire that connect us the our authentic power source (God). men live by faith.

“For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” Rom.1:17.

“Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.”  Hab.2:4

  • These scriptures are not coincidental. Faith is the fuel that keeps the aircraft of our life flying. With faith, you are on the go, there is no stumbling block on the way. All mountains are made plains.
  • You need faith because faith is our purchasing power in the miraculous market.

“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.” Heb.11:6.

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavereth; for he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord. A double-minded is unstable in all his ways.” Jms.1:5-8.

  • You need faith because faith confers rest in a seemingly impossible situation. Seeing into the spiritual realm always bring about. You will so settled about issues that you can’t be daunted by the empty threat of the devil.

This was why Jesus could afford to sleep in the midst of storm even while His disciples were wearing out themselves frantically in a bid to save their lives. But when they remembered to invite Him into the issue, He calmed the storm. Until you remember to invite Jesus into your issues don’t expect the storm over your life to be calmed.

“And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him. Master, carest thou not that we perish: and he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. Mark.4:38

Understanding the power of faith.

A time came when the Syrian was waging war against Isreal, whenever they tried to made war plane the secret got leaked into Elisha – the Prophet of God – through spiritual intervention.

The Syrian army were sent to arrest the prophet, Gehasi – the prophet’s servant was almost paralyzed with fear because he couldn’t see into the realm of the spirit. But, when the Prophet prayed for his eyes to be popped open.

Gehazi too could see the host of angels of God that encamped them. They were both at rest. And our God who is a consuming fire responded.

Fear and anxiety are the cardinal evidence of doubt. Doubt is the opposite of faith. Anytime you find yourself fidgeting, it’s a sign of lack of faith. You can’t be faithful and be doubtful.

How do I build my faith?

  • Take a daily dose of God’s word.

“So the faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Rom.1:17

  • Engage in love with Christ. Obedience is the hallmark of our love. Simply put love in this way,  as a combination of what we receives, believes and obey.

“He that hath my commandments, and keepth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my father, and I will love him, and manifest myself to him.” Jn.14:21

“This is the love of God, that we should obey His commandments and His commmandments are not grevious.”

  • Renew your mind – You are what you think. In the realm of the spirit, any thought that you allow to hold grip upon you is regarded accomplished. God thinks and He thinks positive, if you are truly sons and daughters of God, then think positively.

“As he thinketh in his heart so he is.” Prov.23:7

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you. Saith the lord, thought of peace, and not evil, to give you an expected end.” Jer.29:11.

You can't see

  • Make bold declaration – It requires boldness to move God to confirms His word. Speak inline with what you believe. In the spirit realm, David already chopped off Goliath’s head with his mouth before the actual killing took place. Make positive sounds, decrees according to the way you want it in life. Watch out for what you release into the atmosphere. Remember, The angels are your servant and they will make sure that execute whatsoever you say.

Thou shall decree a thing and it shall be establish unto you” Job22:28

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Prov.18:21

“For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.” Lk.21:15

Your mouth is a destiny molder.

  • Pray in the Holy Ghost – The subject Holy Ghost is seldom discussed but is one of the most crucial topics. Build up your faith by engaging the Holy Ghost in your prayer life. Connect to the spirit world by speaking in tongues. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of obedience, excellence, revelation, etc.

”But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.”  Jude.1:20. Don’t get it twisted, you need the help of the Holy Spirit more than anything else.

The scope of this is topic is limited to discussed fully who the Holy Ghost is. I will drop a link where you can learn more about the Holy Ghost and watch out for my subsequent posts – i will be discussing in details who is the Holy Ghost?

The light


There are lighted men

 

There is nothing magical about scaling great height in life. No man is born failure. Success in life is not meant for some categories of people, if it is, it means you are special.

 

Anybody from anywhere at anytime can cause things to happen no matter where you come from around the corner of the world. Whether you are black, brown, yellow or white you can be numbered among the world high flyers.

 

This is why you will have to repent the impossibility syndrome. “With men this is impossible, with God all things are possible.” Mat.16:26.

 

You are not inferior

 

Light is the surest solution to a man’s problem. God’s word is the container or carrier of God’s light. The entrance of the word of God sparks off light.

 

“The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.” PS.119:130

 

Light dispels darkness. When light comes in, darkness goes out. Light shatters darkness. The incoming of light sends the devil – responsible for the losses and failure that people suffer – on his heels.

 

This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.” 1Jn.1:5

 

Wait a minute, frustration is helpless with illumination. Death is hopeless with life. In the presence of light, poverty has no choice than to pack. Sickness has no dwelling place in light.

 

And he shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water, and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.” Ex.23:25

 

This is graphic of love, trust and believe

 

Failure is a product of darkness. Light is knowledge. Light is revelation. Light is illumination. Knowledge is the key to freedom.

 

The devil is not a problem. Ignorance is the problem.

 

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Hosea.4:6

 

Light is all you need to make it in life. There are no lucky men, there are lighted men. The devil fear lighted men to his pant.  Stay connected to the light frequency and you will become the next devil’s tormentor.
