Is your Imagination of God Starved? - O. Chambers

Is your Imagination of God Starved?

by Oswald Chambers

"Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things." Isaiah 40:26
 
The people of God in Isaiah's day had starved their imagination by looking on the face of idols, and Isaiah made them look up at the heavens, that is, he made them begin to use their imagination aright. Nature to a saint is sacramental. If we are children of God, we have a tremendous treasure in Nature. In every wind that blows, in every night and day of the year, in every sign of the sky, in every blossoming and in every withering of the earth, there is a real coming of God to us if we will simply use our starved imagination to realize it.
