THE LAMP OF THE BODY IS THE EYE. THEREFORE, WHEN YOUR EYE IS GOOD, YOUR WHOLE BODY ALSO IS FULL OF LIGHT. BUT WHEN YOUR EYE IS BAD, YOUR BODY ALSO IS FULL OF DARKNESS
A lie comes into our minds in the form of a picture—a spiritual picture. This picture is painted by the father-of-lies. After he has painted one of his pictures in our minds, he uses it to control us. He controls us, from the outside, through a spiritual mind picture, on the inside. The Bible calls this DECEPTION. When we look at these spiritual mind pictures, in detail, we find out that each one tells a story. These stories are false. They are made up of lies. If we live according to these spiritual pictures the father-of-lies painted in our minds, we become his slaves. We think the thoughts he wants us to think, do the deeds he wants us to do, and become the person he wants us to be.
LET THE WORDS OF MY MOUTH, AND THE MEDITATION OF MY HEART, BE ACCEPTABLE IN THY SIGHT, O LORD, MY STRENGTH, AND MY REDEEMER
Beloved Child, I want you to know, today, that I, the Most High, DID something about these spiritual mind pictures and the false stories they tell. I sent you the TRUTH. His name is Jesus. Did you know that My Son, Jesus, can do something that nobody else can do…not even you? Jesus can walk into your mind picture and exchange it for a different one. The father-of-lies’ pictures will tell you that you are alone, that you do not have what it takes, that you are the bad guy, and that you are not wanted. If you invite Jesus, who is the Truth, into your mind picture, He will remove it and put His own Picture in its place. He will use this new Picture to tell you how HE feels about you. This new spiritual Picture will set you free. It will show you, in your own mind, that you are NOT alone, that you DO have what it takes, that you are NOT bad, and that you ARE wanted. But, in order for this exchange to take place, you need to invite the Truth into the spiritual mind pictures that the father-of-lies has painted, first.
FOR HIS EYES ARE ON THE WAYS OF MAN, AND HE SEES ALL HIS STEPS. THERE IS NO DARKNESS NOR SHADOW OF DEATH WHERE THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY MAY HIDE THEMSELVES
What do you do with the spiritual mind pictures that live in your mind? Do you believe and obey the stories they tell? How does this affect your life? Would you like to change? Then, you need to start living according to different spiritual mind pictures, called the Truth.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I invite You into the spiritual pictures that live in my mind. Come and replace them with Your own Picture—the Truth.
Maintain an Awareness
This must be the hardest of all lessons to learn: to keep our eyes on the Eternal God during difficult circumstances, and trust that His everlasting arms are underneath us, holding us and keeping us safe.
