If left to our own devices, our imaginations can be depraved and limiting. We create fear, lust, and hopelessness. We pursue failure-filled activities because we let the world rule our imaginations. Our imaginations were created by God to give us the power to creatively reveal him. When we let our own thoughts rule our imaginations we only reveal fear and brokenness. When we reclaim our imaginations for God, and redeem them in Christ, we will see all the possibilities God has for us. We will then be empowered to follow after Christ in demonstrating the immense love of God.
