Conquering the Mind
Psychology is the most important theme of the Bible. Your thoughts are the foundation for every single detail of your life. That includes your quality of life, today and for eternity. Your mind is priceless. It defines who you are!
"And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon." KJV — Revelation 16:12-16
See, like ancient Babylon, we think that we are safe. We have high walls and powerful defenses. I believe that I am ready to face the enemy. Like Belshazzar, we are relaxing while the enemy is building fortifications against us. All Satan needs is one entrance point - and we have given Him plenty.
The last war is a spiritual one. It's fought in our minds. The enemy does signs and wonders to capture our thoughts and turn our hearts away from Jesus. He wants to control our lives. Your thoughts are the key to your existence. Satan knows it.
Mankind walked around naked in the garden of Eden, yet they felt completely at ease. They only noticed their nudity after they sinned. Their focus lay at the heart of this realization.
Up to the point where Satan tempted them, every single detail of their lives existed as part of one harmonious dream. The fabric of this majestic world was held together by the love of God. Everything they experienced spoke. Its language was a combination of sights, sounds and feelings that were molded to feed their hungry minds.
Reality has a voice. It screams in words impossible to deny. This is what it says; "You are God's life!"
Yes, He invested the richness of His imagination, the greatness of His power and the vastness of His knowledge in fashioning you a living home. I am the benefactor of this majestic display of passion. Reality was shaped to enhance my sense of happiness. Everything was formed for my personal enjoyment.
Then Adam looked away from God. In that moment, I became nothing but living dust. It is written, "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." - Genesis 2:7, KJV. You see, we were formed from dust. We are nothing but living dirt. The only difference between me and the dust beneath my feet, is the kiss of life that was breathed into me from the mouth of God.
I do not deserve the sunrise torrents of colorful warmth washing over my winter thawed body. Rainbows show the tenderness of God, despite my human weakness. Flowers do not flower because I have the right to see their beauty. Crashing waves dream of emerging me in the torrents of His love.
Without Him, everything is empty.
This nudity stretched through miles around the fearful patriarch. Everything was still perfect, but perfection lost its awe. Mankind died - and in that moment, only emptiness remained.
The key to finding yourself begins within the appreciation of beauty. Only when I find in God the purpose for the creation of my needs, can I learn to reach into the hearts of others and truly meet their needs.
Business depends on the fulfilment of human desires. Success in the real world demands an intellect driven approach to consumerism. Only products and services that reach into my life, can hope to gain traction in my wallet. In the real world, knowledge is power. The ability to understand your customer, boss and suppliers is the difference between success and failure.
These empty crevices flowing through people's lives were fashioned for a higher cause. Only when we learn to meet that higher need, can we find the completion that life craves for. True fulfilment is based upon who you are. It takes every detail of your existence into account. From this wisdom, love fashions a beauty that reaches through every aspect of your being to build a new you.
Come with me on a journey to discover all life was meant to be. Allow cognitive function to define the meaning of your life.
Thank you for your continued support.
