Perfect, absolute peace surrounds those
whose imaginations are consumed with you;
they confidently trust in you.
(Isaiah 26:3 TPT)
Imagination is a powerful tool God gave us, but it can lead us down dark paths when it presumes the worst, or paths of peace and joy when we remember the One in whom we place our trust.
Many of us know what it is to suffer the agony of scenarios that play out nowhere but in our minds. What if? is a game that can be played in two minds, the old wounded mind or in the forgiven mind Christ is renewing, one hedged in by terrifying fear of abandonment and one lifted up by confident security of being loved by the Creator of the universe.
Check your surroundings. Where is your imagination running? It might be a good time to redirect your thoughts and enjoy the peace it brings.
