“for all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.”
It’s funny but there are a couple of similarities in operation between God and Satan.
One, they speak in pictures quite often.
Even creation was a picture in God’s mind a d thought before it all came into reality.
God or Satan must first plant the picture of what they intend to accomplish in or within us as a seed in our heart
Satan in particular exploits this fact to the fullest!!
He knows that if his picture, as a seed, takes root in our heart, your own mind will device the strategy and provide you a map to that end
All he has to do and always does is to plant a thought or picture in your mind and walk away.
You will be shocked how creative your mind can get to and provide ingenious plans to explore our thinking
Here are some facts about mental pictures;
1). WHATEVER YOU KEEP SEEING YOURSELF DOING, ONE DAY YOU WILL START DOING IT
It’s just a matter of time!
2). WHAT YOU SEE AFFECTS YOUR PERFORMANCE
“ .. and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.”
Numbers 13:33 KJV
No matter your confession, you will only act out the perception of yourself
3). WHAT YOU SEE AFFECTS & TRIGGERS YOUR IMAGINATION
You are either Constantly PRE PLAYING ( imagination) the picture of the greatness God has planted inside
You have been REPLAYING ( memory) the pictures of doubt and failure the devil plants inside!
4). WHAT YOU SEE AFFECTS YOUR BELIEVE
People may doubt everything but not what they saw!!!
Sight is more concrete than sound!!
5). WHAT YOU SEE AFFECTS YOUR PRODUCTIVITY
WHATEVER YOU CONSTANTLY FOCUS ON, YOU WILL CONCEIVE IN THE WOMB OF YOUR IMAGINATION
WHAT YOU CONCEIVE OF, YOU WILL SOON GIVE BIRTH TO !
Why do you think the enemy has jealously guarded his control of the media?
Pls get rid of that negative picture – it may just be the beginning of your down fall
Get rid of that fear – it may soon become your reality!!!
“What I always feared has happened to me. What I dreaded has come true.”
Job 3:25 NLT.
Inconclusion the mind is created to process what we see and think.
The mind is in three parts.
1 MEMORY ( The womb of the past )
2 CONTEMPLATION ( The womb of now )
3 IMAGINATION ( The womb of the future ).
So pictures and thoughts are processed in these three divisions.
Why the reason Paul writing to the Philippian church encouraged us thus.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8.
These are what should be our thoughts and picture day and night.
