As kids, we all engaged with our imagination on a daily basis. As we’ve grown older, our imagination muscles may have atrophied due to the strains and stresses of life.
But God gave us imaginations as much as He gave us logic, reason, and practicality.
In today’s video, Phil Collins guides us to use our God-given imaginations so that we can encounter God. By placing ourselves within the stories of Scripture – using our five senses – we begin to empathize with the people of the Bible, we understand their events in a more experiential way. Rather than viewing facts from afar, we come up close and connect on a deeper level to God’s Word.

I enjoyed the picture it segment. Really uplifting to put myself in the midst of the people and location.
Reading these words in what may have been some stern way about being questioned about Jesus work.
This picture it part of the Bible gave me a better understanding of what was going on at the pool of Bethseda. It made me realize to slown down in my reading and reflect what’s really going on. What a wonderful tool.
When Jesus shows up, awesomeness occurs. I cannot remember a time when disappointment reigned in the presence of Jesus. It is far deeper than imagination when Jesus is felt. thank you for this lesson.
I enjoyed this. I have a hard time staying focus when I read. Will practice slowing down and doing this.
