As created human beings, we are given imagination; we can use it for evil, as did Israel; “But they hearkened not to me, and their ear gave no heed, but they walked in the imaginations of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward” (Jeremiah 7:24), or we can, instead, “Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things” (Isaiah 40:26).
The imagination must be brought under the authority of the Holy Spirit; then it can be used for good and not evil. So many Christians have no experience of the presence of God because of a lack of spiritual imagination. While we cannot see God, we can imagine Him and, if we fix our imagination on Him, we can experience His presence. If we turn our minds over to God and imagine His presence, we will experience that presence and, as we experience that presence, we will hear His voice.
Consider David; I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. (Psalm 121:1). The hills are the high places where God dwells; we too, are meant to dwell there as eagles, soaring in the heavenlies with Him. If that is where we expect help, we must learn firstly, to lift up our eyes and our imaginations and secondly, to dwell there with Him. As do this, we can say, with David the king;
Unto thee I lift up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens. (Psalm 123:1).
If eagles are to fly, they must have two wings; true Christian faith, too, requires two wings if the eagle Christian is to soar in the heavenly places with Him. One wing is belief in truth, the other is trust in Christ.
