In the beginning God created…God being our creator has created us in His own image and after His likeness so as such we have the same potentials like Him too to create. I have used the word POTENTIAL because most people sadly enough in their life time could not discover this innate power resident in them and as such they could not make a name for themselves in their life time. But today, I want to put it to you that you have all that it takes inside of you to begin to think and act like a creative person as God Has made you irrespective of your background, skin color, educational qualification etc.
The Power to create lies in our ability to imagine. You need to sharpen your imaginative skill constantly if you want what we desire in life to come into manifestation, things don’t just happen like that, it starts in our imagination. Let us do a short exercise, some names are listed below, who comes to your mind when they are mentioned:
A, Virgin Atlantic
B, DAAR Communications
D, Covenant University
E, Silver bird
F, chair centre
I hope you guess right. We can see that for each of the above named brands, an individual name comes to mind. This goes to show that these people have made a name for themselves from their brands. They have created something that was not in existence before now. They have imagined something from the realm of the invisible to become visible. For instance, MICROSOFT is Bill Gates, Bill Gates is Microsoft, his real name and his brand name can be used interchangeably. Microsoft did not exist before until Bill Gates imagined it from the invisible world and brought it to the visible world.
After the creation of Heaven and earth, the Towel of Babel is another story that depicts how far imagination can be turned into reality. The men said, “Come let us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly, and they had brick for stone and bitumen for mortar”. Before that time, bricks were not in existence, what we had was stone, but they were able to imagine how bricks can be turned into stones.
There are thousands of things still missing in our environment, which someone, some where have to imagine and work on to make it a reality. It could be an invention, an idea, an organization, a book, a product, a business idea, a software program etc. These men building a towel interrupted God’s agenda in heaven, because of what they have imagined and were about to create. God had to come down and see the progress of the city and the tower they were building. I am persuaded that God Himself was amazed at their innovation.
I challenge you today to activate the power of your imagination, and I can assure you that the sky will be your stepping stone not even your limit……….IF YOU CAN IMAGINE IT,THEN YOU CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN.
