Imagination (your intention)




Before God spoke in Genesis, He had pictures of what he intended in mind. He imagined before speaking. He planned and had a clear image.
Mark 11 talks about heart and desire. Also look at the following scriptures before we continue.

Proverbs 23:7

7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
Imagination is a very important thing in prayer and daily life. By imagination, I mean the picture of what we desire. It must be clearly designed, and this desire must be held in our mind as we pray.
What many of us often forget  the laws governing life.  We all know that it takes some time for clouds to be formed and produce rain. Also, not all clouds do bring rain—tiny clouds cannot bring rain. Similarly, every desire in us that is not that is not clear cannot be backed by God. The truth is God backs well pictures desires that have been watered with faith.
Remember, the Lord Jesus never healed anyone without the person having a conception or a clear desire or picture in mind. God desire us to have a clear picture of what we want before coming to him to ask for the materialisation. If we do not have clear picture, or if we have a wondering picture God cannot help us. Psalm 37: 3 and 4 says that we need to trust in the Lord, do good and He shall give us the desire of our heart. Soon after that, the bible says that we need to commit our ways to Him. After knowing what we want, we need ask him to materialise it. When we ask he will let His Holy Spirit move and make it become real. 
Psalm 37
 3 Trust in the Lord, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
4 Delight yourself also in the Lord,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass.

6 He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your justice as the noonday.
One thing worth noting is, our desires are in pictures and not word because our mind uses images to often speak to us and God. For example, the moment you here the name Obama, what comes to mind are not the words, but an image of a person . this image come to speak to you. Likewise, in prayer, images of what we desire must accompany our words as we speak to God through faith. Doing this is bringing things to realty through the help of God.
To imagine is to create a reality with our spirit, hence if the creation is evil, God will judge us. The Lord Jesus warned on evil imagination which is in fact closer to witchcraft.
Matthew 5
27 “You have heard that it was said to those of old,[c] ‘You shall not commit adultery.’[d] 28 But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.
The Lord warned on wrong thinking, because creation begins from the mind which is the seat of our Spirit. In fact, it is in this place that realities are created and nursed. From this point, human beings backed by either the spirit of God, human spirit or satan can bring about realities.
Job 32:8a
But there is a spirit in man,
And the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding.
