But as it is written in the Scriptures: “No one has ever seen this, and no one has ever heard about it. No one has ever imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9 NCV)
Just reading this verse gives me chill bumps…
No eye has seen
No ear has heard
We cannot with our finite minds even begin to imagine
What God has in store for those who love Him…
Take your biggest dream,
Take your greatest longing,
Take your impossible situation or worse yet that impossible woman or man
Take your most hideous sins and the forgiveness needed
Take the greatest outcomes you can imagine for anything that tickles your brain.
Expand those as far as you can see…
And then step out on a cloudless night and consider the heavens
Stand on a mountain top and breathe in the glory that stretches out on all sides
Wiggle your toes in the sand as you gaze on the ocean with its waxing and waning tides
Look in a mirror, the reflection of you, the image of God in every human face, God’s DNA in every human race.
With those images fresh in your brain,
shut off the lights,
cover your ears.
Imagine God in three persons, a major task in itself
Imagine before He began, before the beginning, before the Word
Crashed through and then there was light.
Before it all God in three persons
Imagined it all
The vast universe with stars, planets, and black holes
The land and the sea
The forests, mountains, trees,
Animals, rivers, white sand beaches,
mosquitos and fleas
You and me.
That God has prepared for those who love him
More than our eyes can see
More than our ears can hear
More than our minds can conceive
More than we can imagine
But not more than He can!
I am grateful for the Imagination, Creativity, and Love of God!
