Realizations of a King IV: Have Faith in Your Imagination

One of my favorite scriptures from the bible is Mark 11:23, which says, "For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to the mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea, 'and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says."

This scripture is the one scripture that answers all the questions or doubts we have about success.

I've brought it up many times in my notes and you can hear that scripture is referred to by many of the significant figures in history. Albert Einstein said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge," which is the same thing as believing you can cast a mountain into the sea.

Imagination is what you believe you can do before you know you can do it. Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Faith is taking the first step when you don't see the whole staircase."

Faith believes in the things that you cannot see or haven't seen yet. So, imagination and religion are linked together. That's why dreams are usually things that haven't been done yet, and when they come true, it's generally by people believing in them and having faith that they would come true. When you hear preachers say, "speak something into existence," Mark 11:23 is the scripture they refer to.

That's why it is so important to talk about your dreams. In school, everyone wrote down what they wanted to do when they grew up. And that assignment was the perfect starting point to make your dreams come true. When you stood in front of your class and read your paper on what you dream about doing when you got older, you started to speak your dreams into existence.

 The problem is that we stop speaking about our dreams after that day. We went to school and were taught to plan our goals logically, based on money, status, and education. Our dreams were buried in our minds and only revisited in fantasies while we take our lunch break at work or have some free time around the house.

 We lost touch with speaking our dreams into reality. I was one of those kids that never stopped talking about my dreams. I continuously talk about my dream of playing in the NBA, and even though it hasn't happened, I feel myself getting closer every day.

I think when people speak about their dreams, they expect them to come true right away. Sometimes that happens, but it's not always the case; your dream may be a puzzle, and speaking about it every day is adding a piece to that puzzle to make a dream come true.

So have faith in your imagination and believe in your dreams.

 

I'm a firm believer that there's no such thing as "can't be done" because it's not that it can't be done; it just hasn't been done yet.
