OVERCOMING THE TROUBLE OF THE HEART – Part 3
Bible Reading: Jeremiah 16:10-13
Imagination of the heart is our focus for today message and prayer bombs.
Imagine is defined as follow:
* To form a mental image of something; to envision or create something in one’s mind.
* To believe in something created by one’s own mind. For instance she imagined that the man wanted to kill her.
* To assume
* To conjecture or guess
* To contrive in purpose; to scheme; to devise.
While imagination is defined as:
* The image-making power of the mind; the act of creating or reproducing ideally an object not previously perceived; the ability to create such images.
The number image one can create in his mind idolatry.
* Imagination is one of the most advanced human faculties. Particularly, construction of false images; fantasizing. You think someone’s been following you? That’s just your imagination.
* Creativity; resourcefulness. A mental image formed by the action of the imagination as a faculty; a conception; a notion; an imagining; something imagined.
With above definitions, one can easily mislead himself and end in destructions through imagination of the mind. What we imagine on several times have make us lost many things that belongs to us.
And at the other hands our imagination can leads us to successful destination if our heart is right in and with God.
WHAT IMAGINATION OF THE MIND CAN CAUSE:
* The imagination of the mind can make us believe wrongs things:
Jeremiah 13:10 says: This evil people, which refuse to hear my words, which walk in the imagination of their heart, and walk after other gods, to serve them, and to worship them, shall even be as this girdle, which is good for nothing.”
What you believe is what you achieve. If you believe in idols you will achieved idolatry. If you believe in God you will achieve goodness.
If your imagination (believe) that it is idols that can safe you surely you are under cage and bondage because idols has no power to safe or deliver you.
* It can cause and make you following wrong Path.
There are paths and there is Path. The paths are leads to destruction while Path is lead to life – Proverbs 14:12
“The is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end therefore are the ways of death”.
It is a way (path) that imagine right in man’s mind but are that way (path) to death. The man imagine it in his mind that the way will be good and life, but it is not. Several people had been victims of this wrong imagination, thinking that the spouse they married will wipe away their sorrow but is now causing them more grief and sorrows.
Many are seeking solutions to their predicaments in the wrong ways as a result of their imaginations. And they had spent everything they have, yet their problems remain unsolved.
Mathew 9: 20-22, and Luke 8:42-45 tell us about a woman with issued of blood for twelve years, she spent all she have to physicians and fake prophets of her time, but no healing. But she she saw Jesus, she imagine, created healing in her heart through Jesus and she was healed.
* imagination of mind can lead to wasting time and properties.
The woman in Like 8:42-48 has wasted all her money and properties and even her time because of her imagination for healing from wrong place or wrong people. My friend, how long you will continue in wasting your time and resources in seeking way where there is no. Don’t allow your wrong imagination rub you anymore. Be wise!
* Wrong imagination leads to wrong association.
Jeremiah 13:10 This evil people, which refuse to hear my words, which walk in the imagination of their heart, and walk after other gods, to serve them, and to worship them, shall even be as this girdle, which is good for nothing.”
Sometimes imagination can cause man to partnership with wrong people. 1 Corinthians 15:33.
* Setback instead of moving forward. Jeremiah 7:24 “But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.”
Many are in position of backwardness because they followed their evil imagination. Several people are rich and wealthy before but now they lacked because they followed their imagination in serving demonic and occultist. They forsaken God and God forsake them.
* Destruction – Genesis 6:5 “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
The first generation on earth was destroyed as a result of their evil imagination that has no end. God warned them, but the refused to listen and obey Him. The end of any imagination that is evil is destruction.
Beloved, you are reading this message for you to repent and change your evil imagination. Until you change your imagination your life will not experience change from God. Your heart must be change from evil thoughts and evil imaginations. What is in tour heart is what you are. If your mind is full of evil surely your total being will experience evil like sorrow, sickness, afflictions,debts, bitterness, weeping, etc. But if your heart is full of good thoughts, surely goodness will always manifest in your doings.
