Whatever You Imagine is Possible?

The United Negro College Fund used the expression “the mind is a terrible thing to waste” as their education slogan. While I agree with this statement, an active and vivid imagination is just as important for children and adults who are about to give up on life. Imagination inspired John Lennon to write a song. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. imagined a country where people would no longer be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. Whatever you imagine is possible to a certain extent.

And the Lord said, Behold, they are one people and they have [a]all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do, and now nothing they have imagined they can do will be impossible for them, Genesis 11:6.

Moses writes about a mighty hunter named Nimrod who imagined the first suburbs. in between the cities of Babel and Calneh. While the architect of the City of Babel and its mighty tower is not named, this idea came from the imagination of Nimrod who wasn’t afraid to dream big. Based upon the passage above, God believed that mankind could accomplish anything that they imagined if there was only one language on earth.

Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to go into the kingdom of heaven. 25 When the disciples heard this, they were utterly puzzled (astonished, bewildered), saying, Who then can be saved [[g]from eternal death]? 26 But Jesus looked at them and said, With men this is impossible, but all things are possible with God, Matthew 19:24-26.

Fast forward to the New Testament as Jesus shares an analogy about the struggles rich people will have in regard to eternity. Based upon the emotional reaction of Jesus’ disciples, they were deflated. Jesus’ expression of a camel going through the eye of a needle, where they are tied up outside the city gates, seems impossible on the surface. However, with God anything is possible. Therefore, if you’re not afraid of imagining great things for your future, you have a chance if this dream aligns with God’s will. Only time will tell upon bended knees in prayer.
