Throughout the history of human existences the imagination of man's heart has been evil, continually. Eve was deceived by the serpent. She imagined the fruit to be appealing to the eye resulting in a desire to lust after it, questioning what God had said. Adam was disobedient to God his creator; within his imagination he thought he could cover his sin and hide from God. Cain allowed his imagination against his brother Able, he compared his offering as not good enough, thus hate entered his heart and he killed his brother. Sin begins within our thoughts, our imaginations. Jesus said if one lust after a woman in his mind he has already committed adultery. If one hates his brother he is a murderer. We are instructed in God’s Eternal Word to cast down vain imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing “every thought” into the obedience of Christ. We deceive ourselves if we think we can have peace while we continue to entertain the imaginations of our hearts. This will only lead to more vanity within our imaginations feeding the appetite of sin, and when sin is conceived it brings forth death. God who searches out hearts and understands the imaginations of our thoughts has made a promise to us, that if we seek Him, He will be found. When we seek Him with all our hearts. Amen! Let’s seek Him with a perfect heart and a willing mind! Let’s Worship Him in Spirit and in Truth! Let’s turn from our idols to serve the Living God! Isaiah 55:7-12 “Let the wicked forsake his way; and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him: and to our God for He will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater. So shall my Word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. For you shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you with singing, and all the tress of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree; and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”…Glory! Proverbs 16:3 Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thought shall be established… Deuteronomy 29:19 And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the imagination of mine heart, to add drunkenness to thirst: 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. Romans 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 1 Chronicles 28:9 And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever. 1 Chronicles 29:18 O Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, our fathers, keep this for ever in the imagination of the thoughts of the heart of thy people, and prepare their heart unto thee. There is an appetite for sin that dwells within our flesh and an emptiness within our soul that longs for wholeness. We confuse one with the other trying to fill the emptiness by satisfying the appetite for sin. Jesus said, “hunger and thirst for His righteousness and you will be filled; seek first His kingdom and all things will be given unto you.” My thirst for the Almighty Eternal God is greater than the pleasures of sin…Jesus is the substance I desire, the very essence of my being…Bonnie Kae Lentz October 16th. 2014 Hebrews 4:12...For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Seek out the Book of the Lord and read, for it is His Word that is forever settled in heaven! Psalm 139:23-24 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting...
