The Unimaginable

Where were we when the foundations of the earth were determined?  Where were we when we were not yet conceived?  How was the size of the earth determined?  How many stars can the universe hold? Where does the wind come from?  Where does it go when it has blown past? And when we say there is no wind today, where is it?

God challenges Job at one point to answer these questions and many more.  He even said, “Where were you (Job) when I laid the foundations of the earth?  Tell Me if you know.”  God was saying to Job, imagine all that you know and still that would be not enough to know How great I am.

To imagine a thing is to be able to think of the possibilities of a thing.  But if we can think that something is possible, it is no longer unimaginable.  We serve a God Who is Great, and a God Who is Great serves each and every one of us. Imagine how unimaginable that is!

So how should we think, knowing all that we know, yet knowing that there are still things around that we cannot even imagine?  Well, we should be full of thanksgiving, and we should be moved to grateful prayers.  Even though we know much, there is much more we cannot imagine that only He knows.

Ephesians 3:20 gives us a hint of how we should think of this.  It says, “Now unto Him Who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in church by Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever.  Amen.”

We should learn to live, speak, and pray in terms of the unimaginable.  We should learn to live, speak, and pray as much about the unimaginable greatness of God as we do about the things we know of God.  We should learn to live, speak, and pray of the amazing greatness of what we obviously do not know about our God and about His love for us.

There is a quote and there are many songs that say this: “I don’t know what the future holds, but I know Who holds the future.”  Sometimes we personalize this by saying, “I don’t know what my future holds but I know Who holds my future.”

Either way, can we even imagine what is the future?  Where is our future today?  When will our future come, and what will it be?  The saying is truer than we can even imagine.

In times past, I knew God was able to do anything, even more than I could think or imagine.  But more often, my thoughts were selfish, wanting more for me from a God who has no limits to what He can do.  I wanted to get something.

Today I am different.  I live—and I encourage you to also live—the unimaginable life.  I want you to live in the favor of the things we cannot even imagine God has ordained for us because He is an unimaginable God.  Let your life be to Him who is able to do exceedingly above all and anything that you can think.  Learn to live by giving something.

Let’s learn to live in glory by giving lives to an unimaginable God.  And perhaps when we do, He will bless us with the favor and riches of good things only He can imagine.

In all your circumstances, no matter how difficult, learn to pray for what you want.  But more than that, seek God’s best in your circumstances.  Seek for what only God Himself can imagine.

Live a Delivered Life.  Love you.
