WALLS OF YOUR MIND

prisoner of mind

Then said He unto me, ‘Son of man, dig now in the wall’ and when I had digged in the wall, behold a door. And He said unto me, ‘Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.’ So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, portrayed upon the wall round about….Then said He unto me, ‘Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? For they say, The LORD seeth us not; the LORD hath forsaken the earth…’ (Ezekiel: Chapter 8).

Imagery: (Hb… maskiyth) a figure (carved on stone, the wall, or on any object), imagination (conceit, image, picture, wish); observant (the mind/heart) (Strong’s Concordance).

Imagery is what we THINK about; the picture that comes to mind with the thoughts we have. It’s what we wish for and it’s where we will focus much of our wake time. Our mind is where the majority of life’s battles are won or lost. It is the key area Satan can control if we allow him the access. It is at our THOUGHTS that we MUST take our authority in Jesus Christ and put a STOP to them (Romans 1:21-23; 12:1-2; 2 Corinthians 10:4-6)!

My dear brothers and sisters, the enemy knows you personally. He has his demons actively at work around you and they know every weakness you have. Satan will wait until just before you reach your destiny, your breakthrough, or purpose and then he’ll release all the dark secrets you have hidden as the very weapons for your destruction (Matthew 4:1-3; Ephesians 6 10-12). He’ll bring discouragement, feelings of failure, bitterness, anger, guilt, burnout, anxiety, depression, emptiness, hopelessness, lust, envy, jealousy, etc. into your thought-life in order to bring your ability to proclaim your victory in Jesus to a HALT! He will do whatever it takes to lock you up in his pit of darkness, doubt despair, and defeat. CHURCH, RESIST HIM, STAND FIRM IN YOUR FAITH (1 Peter 5:8-11)!

There is not one person out there who has never had an attack of some sort from the enemy. Some people “just like us” were Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:1-7) and King David, the man after God’s own heart (1 Samuel 13:14; 2 Samuel 11:2-4). In both examples, they allowed the desires of their flesh nature to gain control and they acted on their thoughts instead of turning and running in the other direction (into God’s arms) (Matthew 5:27-30). It is important to note that Scripture does not say ‘God will RESIST the enemy for you,’ oh no! YOU MUST RESIST him and it begins IN the thought level. I recently heard someone say that you can only think about what you know. How true that is.

What is it you immerse yourself in?
What types of books, magazines, shows, videos, entertainment, friends, etc. do you spend time looking at, reading, or watching? Seventy elders of Israel allowed their thoughts to dwell on the perversions of the heathen nations around them. They painted the pictures on the tomb walls (darkness) of Solomon’s temple and offered incense to them; worshipping the images of their minds! Scripture goes on to say, “The Lord seeth us not; the LORD hath forsaken the earth” (Ezekiel 8: 8-12). Are we any different? In the midst of your pain and discouragement, do you ever wonder if God is real? Yes, Scripture says He is, but it’s a book. Yes, Scripture says He’s going to return, but I don’t see it happening! Yes, Scripture says Jesus healed then and He can now, but my body hurts. Have you been dwelling on things to bring you pleasure for the moment, to help you get through the tough times? Have you painted images on the walls of your mind and are you spending more and more of your time worshipping them thinking God isn’t noticing, or that He doesn’t care (Revelation 2:20-29)?

Your mind is the greatest gift God has given you and it ought to be devoted entirely to Him. Seek to bring every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. As you spend your time getting to know Him through His Word, you will begin to see that your thoughts are from Him as well, and your mind will no longer be at the mercy of impulsive thinking. MAKE THE CHOICE to turn your thoughts and your eyes away from the face of idols and look to Him and be saved (Isaiah 45:22). James 4:7,8 says, “Submit yourselves then, to God. RESIST the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and He will come near to you….” Amen.

  1. Thankyou.

    Reading your work is like taking a long drink from a tall cold glass of water.

    I truly appreciate what you are doing here. Your writing flows as if it my best friend was sitting down in front of me having a conversation with me.

    You have a gift of communication.

    The way you write describes complex issues in thought provoking ways that even the babes in Christ can understand, yet it spurs on the more mature to drink deeper.

    Gods heart drips from your pen.

    Thank you for taking the time to write and share His heart.

    Its been a long time since Ive ran across such an amazing, thought provoking writer.

    • I so appreciate your kind words and am blessed to know that Holy Spirit uses the words He has given to me to bring others into His presence in a ‘new way’ for every ‘new day.’ God bless you and I pray that all I am given to write in the future will release His profound presence over you and all who read… a saturation of His glorious love for His sons and daughters and for those who do not yet know Him. Amen.
