Is your God awesome?

Posted in Revelations tagged , , , , at 5:40 pm by askandimagine

So I’ve been doing some thinking lately and it occurred to me that God is awesome: amazing, fascinating, incredible, marvelous,prodigious, shocking, stunning, surprising,unbelievable, wonderful (synonyms from dictionary.com).

But unless we live this out we never fully get it. To me one of the many things that makes Him awesome is the fact the He wants to know me. We have a relationship; times together that no one will ever know about, we talk about everything, we go places meet people and the list continues. Someone of such great importance and influence wants to chill with me! Unbelieveable but it’s true!

Truly this is what makes Christianity stand out. I am dying to ask some one of another religion this question: Would you say the God you serve is awesome, amazing? I mean the God I serve is my Heavenly Father, he cares about everything about me and meets all my needs. He shares His secrets, things out of this world. There could be no greater treasure than to know Him.

Even if you are a believer, I encourage  you to ask yourself if you think of God as awesome. There is always more in Him.

Hello world!

I finally made it! It probably didn’t have to be as difficult as I made it, but who would have thought that choosing a username would be such a challenge. Being the person that I am, I couldn’t use just any title – it needed to have meaning and be unique. My absolute favorite was “Hidden Treasures” so good yet so taken, same as many others.

I tried to think of other titles that are able to sum up what God has teaching me lately, but this is where the challenge came in.

After some time, Ask and Imagine seemed to stick. Read more for the back story:

I sometimes feel that if I can think of something, an idea, plan, *title, it isn’t all that great because God can easily come up with something so much better! Immediately after the title popped into my head, it dawned on me how active we must be as Christians. We MUST ask and imagine to see the word fulfilled (Him do more than that) or how else will we know. Seek and you will find, ask and it will be given to you, knock and the door will be open. It all starts with an action.

A couple of months ago I heard a sermon that urged believers to be more active in their faith versus passive and pushed around by life’s circumstances. In the same way, we can actively stand on God’s word and ask Him for our greatest heart desire. This can be career goals, personal goals, spiritual goals or anything!!! In light of this, don’t be afraid to ask or image because He is more than able and WILLING to do it (Ephesians 3:20Romans 8:32).
