Imagination is powerful. It can be used to create and implement all sorts of ideas and dreams. More importantly, what you imagine becomes your reality. It’s a process few Christians understand, let alone apply. It’s also why many struggle to receive from God; they’ve dismissed imagination as something childish or wrong. But what they’ve really done is thrown out the good with the bad; having a positive imagination is what the Bible calls “hope!” And hope is what faith is based on (Heb. 11:1).
“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” (Jeremiah 29:11).
The Lord’s plans for us are nothing but good. The evil we experience doesn’t come from the Lord. It’s because we aren’t following God’s plans that most of us encounter evil. As we follow God’s plans for our lives, we can be assured of the outcome. There will be an expected future.
Those who seek God with all their hearts aren’t promised no troubles, but they are promised victory and an expected end.
You can’t give away what you don’t have! If you don’t fully understand God’s love for you, you won’t be able to love others. Most of us would admit there are some people who are very difficult to love. However, if we receive a full revelation of God’s love for us, it becomes easy to love others with the love that we have received. God’s love for us is unconditional, and we all need a greater revelation of God’s love for us! Let God’s love for you take root in your heart, and then watch as your love for others grows!

There is a difference between knowing ABOUT someone and really KNOWING them. Even demons believe in God and tremble, but they aren't saved. The more you spend time in God's Word, the more you will get to truly know him and His heart for you!

Jesus said the true worshipers of God MUST worship Him in spirit and in truth. Those who are approaching the Lord based on what they have done are not worshiping the Lord in the spirit and, therefore, are not truly worshiping God. Paul showed that he had more acts of holiness than most, but he counted all his efforts as dung in comparison to the gift of righteousness that comes through faith in what Jesus did.
This is an attitude that must come to those who are prospering in the things of the Lord. We can’t have any confidence in ourselves. Our confidence must be in the Lord. This is a mystery to those who don’t have the revelation of “Christ in us.”
