Spirit Led Imagination

i like this…

James 1:2 Consider it (Guide your mind) pure joy (cause for celebration), my fellow believers, whenever you encounter various kinds of trials,

The English word “consider” is the Greek word hegeomai, which literally means to guide/lead the imagination/mind. ..

What James told his people who were struggling with depending on God in the midst of adversity, was to purposely guide their imagination using what the Spirit had taught them so that they could see adversity as an opportunity for God to do good.

Hegeomai means to envision your situation under the management of God and visualize all the good things that God is going to bring about. Rather than imagine all the negatives possibilities that might come about or visualize all that might be lost in these adversities, the Spirit leads our minds to see the good that God is doing.

that’s a great word right there…

to be honest, i used to think that verse sucked.  consider it pure joy?… yeah right.  but i guess it’s not poetry… it’s there for a reason
