When is the last time you used your imagination?
Just imagine, try it. smell it, taste it, feel it,
taste a lemon or chocolate.
See yourself taking a nice bath or shower.
Imagine your best friend and just hanging out with them . . .
How’d that make you feel?
Jesus, people were either praising Jesus or trying to kill Jesus, they still are, every day.
It is written:
For this reason, therefore, the Jews were seeking all the more to kill Him, because He not only was breaking the Sabbath but also was calling God His own Father, making Himself equal with God. John 5 – 18:18
Are we not the very same with one another? Are we not the very same within our own selves? Imagine being equal with God. How would you use such a power? To what end? How would you walk? talk? and conduct yourself toward your fellow man?
This I have in the past learned the hard way.
My heart has been aching for years and years now. Finally, I am on the mend, truly I am.
All too literally, I have put my heart in another man’s hands. I’ve had enough heart surgery on the outside for three people at least. Now, it’s time for surgery on the inside. My chest has been sawed in two and wired back together, heart has been stopped and started, it’s arteries blockages have been spliced, and rearranged to assist with the flow of life.
This I have learned the hard way. Our weapons for winning the war on fear and doubt are within us. Everything we need is within. Christ the hope of glory is within you! Christ in you is so close that you can not nor will you ever be separate.
Watch what conversations, judgments, loving and unloving thoughts you dwell on.
Take time to think about what you are thinking about.
Hmmmm, What are you thinking about when you are not thinking about what you think about? ? ?
Truly God is One and All in All – Love and wisdom, faith, grace, and truth, forgiveness and all good things or doubt and fear, pride and greed, it is all inside of you, every last jot and tittle. We are held accountable for every imagination of our hearts. The most power, the greatest responsibility we will ever have is the power to choose. Choose wisely, choose nobly, choose lovingly.
Like tiny seeds, your inward imaginations are the seeds and fruit of your heart and they will yield fruit after their own kind. Reaping a harvest of what you have sown in the garden of your mind. We all reap what we sow, it is the law of an identical harvest, and that law will never pass away. Look within and monitor your thoughts and inner conversations. Speak to one another in psalms and hymns and songs making melody in your heart to the LORD, to whom you belong. Be thankful.
Change the inside, and you will witness that change on the outside.
But . . . you knew that. Be encouraged in the knowledge that “God” is for you and not against you. All good things are given richly to be enjoyed.
