Without a vision, the people perish, but with a vision, the people thrive. So, let us share our visions and get understanding, for God speaks to us through them.
Recently I saw myself sprout gigantic, white wings and as I ascended, I broke through the spider’s web that had encased me. Hey! Hey! Hey! “Not by might, not my power but by my Spirit,” saith the Lord!…. even the wind beneath my wings, so now, this child of God is saying: “Good-bye spider and good-bye entrapment!”
In looking up the etymology of the word “cob web,” I discovered that it was simply “spider web,” but get this: “Spider has a literal meaning of “poison head.” A spider’s web is made from its very being and is a picture of deception and entanglement-…. even a deadly entrapment that comes from the carnal mind, and THAT is the “poison head” we’re to be wary of.
I’ve known this, yet I haven’t. Look at Peter who walked on water for a split second, but then started to sink. We’re just like him! The mind of Christ in us says: “Come on! Walk on the water of TRUTH and FAITH!” and we do, until the five senses take over,…. and usually pretty rapidly like they did with Peter. For most of us, those pains in our bodies speak louder than “By His stripes we were healed!”
A few weeks ago I had the thought “I need a whistle” and wrote about it in my post “Whistling And Getting Married.” However, I left out a most important point, and today, the lyrics of a song brought it, blaring in my Christ mind like a siren decreeing: “I’ve come to the rescue!” Hear it: “Whenever I feel afraid, I hold my head erect and WHISTLE a happy tune, so no one will suspect I’m afraid.”
Faith demands action! We gotta act like we got what we asked for, because the truth is that we’ve already got it. Come on brethren: Whistle! Strut your stuff! Quit thinking and speaking “lack.” We have life and death in our tongues, and sad to say, too many of us have allowed the tongue connected to the carnal mind to have reign.
“Take up your bed and walk!” God tells us. “Call forth the things that are not as though they were.” (Romans 4: 17) Oh brethren, we’re to do away with the carnal mind, and then we’ll be weaving no more webs…. It’s the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and our five senses that have deceived us all along and brought us death…. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but God’s words shall never pass away (Luke 21: 33), so what we should be speaking is God’s Word and only the thoughts that are in accordance with it.
The question is: “Will we?”
