The Power Of Imagination


The outcome of your life is a direct product of the state of your mind. Most people are broke in life simply because they are broke in thought, until you change the way you think, you cannot change the way you live. It’s not what you have that makes you rich; it’s what you think. We will never rise above our present conditions if we are not thinking beyond them.

“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he” – Proverbs.23:7.

Most people are victims of oppression more than anything else, their thinking has been affected due to long-term oppression, and so they have been used to servitude. The same thing happened to the Israelites who spent more than 400 years in Egypt, serving the Egyptians in agony and hardship. Unfortunately, they didn’t want to leave Egypt because they were used to slavery – sufferings were in their DNA which was why they blamed Moses for initiating the freedom.

May I tell you this, your present condition is not your portion – never mistake the former with the latter – your current situation is not your permanent address. You are on that job because God wants you to use their resources to develop your gifting (that your place of work is not your final bus stop).

The most difficult project to complete on earth is to change someone’s thoughts, it’s easier to complete a high-rising building than to complete the project of changing people’s mindsets but it’s not impossible to achieve because Jesus was able to change the minds of eleven disciples. If He could do it, that means we can. 

Your mind is the gateway to your life. God thinks and He thinks positively (Jeremiah.29:11). You are created in God’s image and as a god after the kinds of your Manufacturer (God), which means as long as you are not a bastard, you are not permitted to think negatively. God answers thoughts in as much as He answers prayers. The woman with the issue of blood did not pray, she thought within herself, took steps, and was healed (See, Mathew.9:20-22)

“I said, You are gods; indeed, all of you are children of the Most High” – (Psalm.82:6).

Superhuman projects like the Pharoah’s Light House, Hanging City of Babylon, and Pyramid of Egypt were accomplished by the power of imagination. If you can see it; you can have it. God told Abraham to look Northward, Southward, Eastward, Westward from where he was, all the land that he could see shall be given unto him and his seeds (See, Genesis.13:14-15). Wait a minute: A future you can’t picture don’t expect to feature. Sight is seeing the present condition. Vision is seeing beyond the present condition. Faith is vision and vision is faith. (See, Hebrews.11:1).

However, the Bible says that we should not walk by sight but by vision (See, 2. Cor.5:7). Because sight limit God to perform His will in our lives while vision hastens the hands of God to perform His will for our destiny (See, Jeremiah.1:11-12). If your dream doesn’t scare you or looks seemingly difficult for you to accomplish it’s not from God because a dream from God will always require God’s hands for performance. You are responsible for the finances of the dreams you determined; God is responsible for the provision of His dreams you discovered. If you can do what you do without God, check it, it’s not from God. God’s ways are always bigger than your ways (See, Isaiah.55:9).

Brethren, your mind can either make you or mar you. Enlarge your heart and think like your Father in heaven. Think of the impossible and the invincible. And commit God to perform it.

A Spiritual Perspective: Structural & Strategic Planning


A business woman making plans

Spirituality is not against reasoning. It’s spirituality that empowers your reasoning for productive results. I don’t know what you tend to create or you have been creating already. Whatever it’s, make sure that you have a plan.

Before you start any business, there is something that is called the Business Plan that requires you to conduct a feasibility study in order to come up with a generalization of whether the business is viable or not.

Tap into the power of planning. You should not wait until you become big before you plan, you plan to become big. It’s structural and strategic planning that make you big in all your endeavours. The best place to begin is the beginning.

Calculate your costs before building something. For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it ?

Calculate cost before starting a business

A building without a foundation will soon crumble to the ground in mean time. In the beginning, God said, let there be light, and there was light. if there was no light other things – humans, animals and plants – could not survive. Therefore, light must come first before other things could follow.

Our God is a God of order, His area of expertise is to follow every procedure in sequence. Before you can receive His blessings you must obey and He is serious about it (James.1:22-25). If you’re a true son and daughter of God put things in order after the order of your father.

There is an acceptable structure for everything you will ever intend to create in life. Gather all the facts and information, as much as possible, about what you’re creating; mediates, digest, diagnose, strategize and come up with a quality structure with some elements of originality.

Your father is creative, your strategic structure should not be generic. Although you’re are adopting a universal structure, yet you should be innovative, your structure should suit your need. Your structure is your identity, it’s peculiar to you and it can’t be found anywhere else.

Until your blueprint has gained divine approval you can never be successful at what you’re creating. So, present an acceptable blueprint to God for an approval.

For instance, many people start business without adequate records of income and expenses being kept. So, they are just running the business anyhow, spending all the money – profits plus capital altogether.

Some have structures on paper when they began but not being implemented in reality due to lack of discipline, while others don’t have any structure at all, these explain why many businesses collapsed before they see the light of the day. There has been no solid foundation or structure of which the businesses was planted upon.

Here is what the scripture says for anyone intending to go into an enterprise or start creating something of values:

Any enterprise is built by wise planning, becomes strong through common sense, and profits wonderfully by keeping abreast with the facts. – Prov.24:3-5

Any enterprise is built by wise planning

Mark the phrase, keeping abreast with the facts. You need to acquire some facts in oder to come out with some better plans. This is why you need to seek for adequate information on any assignment placed before you. Read and learn everywhere. And most importantly ask God to give you His plan (because God will not come to finish what He did not start).
