Then he took him outside and said, “Look at the sky. Count the stars. Can you do it? Count your descendants! You’re going to have a big family, Abram!” (Genesis 15:5, MSG)
When God promised Abraham that he was going to be the father of many nations, Abraham was in his eighties. He and his wife, Sarah, were too old to have a child. God told him to look up into the nighttime sky, and he would have as many descendants as the stars.
God wanted him to have a picture of it in his mind because He knew the negative images would come. Every time Abraham was tempted to think the promise could never happen, he only needed to imagine all those stars of promise. Twenty years later, Sarah gave birth.
What’s playing on the picture screen of your mind? God has spoken over you how you’ll accomplish your dreams, break that addiction, see your health restored. Are you letting discouraging images keep you from God’s best? God wants to use your imagination for the good, to create vision, to make you hopeful, to fill you with faith.
Use your imagination to help you to stay positive, to be filled with hope and faith. Thank Him for the pictures in your mind that remind you of the promises He has spoken over you. I believe you will overcome every obstacle and it is about time to put some new pictures up. Happy Easter holidays and stay safe.
