The Year 2012 Is Coming. Imagine That!

Here we go into 2012! Much of the new year will be given to us without our having anything to say about it. After all, life happens. But that’s not the whole story. By God’s design we also get to help create the new year. We are, after all, co-creators with God. As creators we don’t operate on the same level as does God but creators we are! God created ex nihilo, making everything out of nothing. We, on the other hand, have to make something out of something.

Russian Christian philosopher Nikolai Birdyaev said, “God created the world by imagination.” We can’t out-imagine God but He has given us the gift of imagination too. We can imagine things that are not or we can imagine things being different than they are. This means that not only does life happen to us but we can also make life happen. This means we may not always be able to control what happens to us but we can control how we respond to what happens to us. We have the God-given ability to respond and not simply react. Imagine that!

How about applying four “Ps” to the year 2012? (1) PRAY – Let’s talk to God, deepening our connection with Him, yielding to His will, and asking for His direction and help. (2) PLAN – Let’s use our God-given imagination and consider what He would have us think, feel, say, and do each day. (3) PURSUE – Let’s take action! If wishes were horses then beggars would ride. Whatever it is, let’s do something about it! (4) PERSIST – The trick is to keep doing something about it. Anyone can start a marathon but few finish. The New Year’s resolution needs to lead to an end-of-the-year result.

God has an infinite imagination. Why else would He have created the giraffe or put blue sky and green grass along side each other at the horizon? We have been given the gift of imagination by Him. Here’s 2012 ahead of us. Just imagine what we can do with it!

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20-21)
