Psalms 94:11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity. Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;
The average human are usually ladened with thoughts. Our life is usually a function of our thoughts but unfortunately, many of the human thoughts are vain in nature. Hence, the best of the things that men seek after are vanities.
One of the things God wants to deliver us from are thoughts of vanity. Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:…. You are defined by your thoughts and so is your future. It’s very important to put our thoughts into the subjection of the Holy Spirit such that all our thoughts are brought into the obedience of the leadings of the Spirit of God.
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.
Evil imagination here do not just mean thinking of something bad or dangerous, it also shows that man was willing to think outside of God.
The imaginary abilities of man is very powerful. Man has the ability to create so many things with just a series of imagination. Yet, man has used this super creative ability to destroy himself, creating a path of destruction for himself. Man preferred to think of himself alone. Man became self-driven and when God is taken out of anything, nothing remains.
Except the Lord instructs our heart from His word, we will also seek vanity. We would run ourselves until we become worn out. Let the Lord rule your heart unto eternal imaginations. Let the thoughts of the most high fill your heart.
