My Utmost For His Highest : "Is Your Hope In God Faint And Dying?"


February 11, 2012


Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose imagination is
stayed on Thee.

Isaiah 26:3

Is your imagination stayed on God or is it starved? The starvation of
the imagination is one of the most fruitful sources of exhaustion and
sapping in a worker's life. If you have never used your imagination
to put yourself before God, begin to do it now. It is no use waiting
for God to come; you must put your imagination away from the face of
idols and look unto Him and he saved. Imagination is the greatest
gift God has given us and it ought to be devoted entirely to Him. If
you have been bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience
of Christ, it will be one of the greatest assets to faith when the
time of trial comes, because your faith and the Spirit of God will
work together. Learn to associate ideas worthy of God with all that
happens in Nature - the sunrises and the sunsets, the sun and the
stars, the changing seasons, and your imagination will never be at
the mercy of your impulses, but will always be at the service of God.

"We have sinned with our fathers; . . . and have forgotten" - then
put a stiletto in the place where you have gone to sleep. "God is not
talking to me just now," but He ought to be. Remember Whose you are
and Whom you serve. Provoke yourself by recollection, and your
affection for God will increase tenfold; your imagination will not be
starved any longer, but will be quick and enthusiastic, and your hope
will be inexpressibly bright.
