Tools of Imagination

Picture a mountain meadow in Spring. A clean refreshing breeze carries the scent of wildflowers; their blossoms scatter pink and white and blue color among the green grasses. Sun warmth covers you with contentment. Listening to the bird song, you spy deer walking through the trees across the meadow. Peace. 

Imagination can create wonder and beauty, peace and rest. Children use it in play. Observing my younger grandchildren interact with each other the boys enjoy rough and tumble play. . . wrestling, fighting with ‘swords’, pretending to be characters who are soldiers, or cowboys, or spacemen, even sometimes ice age critters like the Saber Toothed Tiger and the Wooly Rhino. Girls seem to be drawn to more gentle imaginings.  Children learn to use their imaginations in play. We grown up children can use our imaginings as tools. 


When our enemy the devil attempts to bring fearful pictures of “what ifs” into the imagination, we simply focus on “what is”: Jesus lives in me, and He that lives in me is stronger than the devil who lives in the world. God’s Word is truth. God is faithful to His promises. Speak truth and focus on His Word. Know His powerful love for us. 

"Go to the throne room. Climb into His lap and see His smiling face  shining love upon you, and “feel” His caring warmth. [That is the work of the imagination] 

The imagination becomes a tool. As said above, the enemy will try to use it for evil bringing pictures of negatives, but we cast down vain and dark imaginings of fear or sinful pictures. Our imaginations are gifts of God and He shows us visions of His love, of our dreams and hopes. Picture a strong castle, a shield, a mighty warrior angel protecting us. All these and more can bring comfort and strength. We are called to make good use of our imaginations by using our mind and will to focus our imagination on the right subjects; then it becomes a wondrous tool in achieving a victorious life.
