Glory Seed Devotionals, 2016: Year of the Blessing…
The Journey of the Imagination: Part two
There is journey that exists outside the five senses where we can travel for brief periods. Where we can do what we want to do, be who we want to be, feel the way we want to feel, be with who we want to be with. It is a journey of complete safety, where there is no pain, where there is no sadness, where there is no loneliness. It is the Journey of the imagination.
Imagination is friendly yet within it there are hidden dangers because it is not real; imagination is a journey of beginnings. It can be the beginning of a new life. It can mean the journey out of drug abuse, out of poverty, out of sin. It can mean planning a vacation. It can mean creating a new invention. It can provide temporary relief from reality. The journey of the Imagination can bring temporary relief from the loneliness of missing a loved one? Use your imagination and you can relive fond memories.
Do you want to know Jesus better? Using your imagination and you can walk the dusty roads with Him; you can sit on a hillside and hear Him teach. You can see, hear, and feel Him calm the storms. You can walk with Him and carry His cross to Calvary. You can watch him die slowly for you. Are you standing in need of a Heavenly Father’s blessing? See the blessing in your imagination, then reach out into eternity and take it from a God who loves you deeply. Using your imagination you can ride on the wings of the Holy Spirit to new heights. You can soar high above the struggles of life and put them into eternal perspective. Using your imagination you can visualize the Holy Spirit defeating the principalities and powers of this world on your behalf and claim victory of evil.
Jesus himself used the journey of the imagination to teach in parables. Read the scriptures using your imagination and they will become real, they will become a part of your life. The journey of faith begins with the imagination and ends in the reality that God is, that Jesus is, that the Holy Spirit is, and you are eternally related with them. Journey to the dimension of the imagination you must, stay in it you must not.
Believe in presence of the GOD and in the strength of his GRACE!
GRACE and PEACE,
