Imagination

Eph 3:20 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,

I sacrificed a good night’s sleep to stay up and see the lunar eclipse.  The clouds refused to part.  All I could see was a redish/orange glow through the clouds.  But, as I looked at the glow, I was able to imagine the big, red circle of the moon that was making the reflection through the clouds.  Many times, as we read God’s Word, we can use our imagination as we read about the accounts of events.  We tend to romanticize history and clean it up to suit our fancy.  Instead of romanticizing let’s try to put ourselves into the events.  How would we feel in those situations?  What might we have done?  I’ve tried to do that in a small way during Advent season with the different people involved in the Nativity event.  I hope this opens the doors of your imagination.  The gift of imagination comes from God.  We can use it in a good way or in a bad way.  We have the control.  Let’s use it in a good way and get really involved in the events recorded in God’s Word so we can better understand them.
