Yeah. So I'm standing in the checkout aisle and I see this magazine. It says "Imagine: Your Ideal Body, A Better Job, Extra Energy, More Love, Less Stress, a Better Outlook...The new You begins here."
Wow! So reading this magazine and using my imagination is going to make me into a brand new person! If you look closely you can even see magical ribbons swirling around Oprah's head. Hey! Are those birds? Cool. Just like a Disney film! Hhmmmm...is that a spiders web? Where does that fit in?
The World (represented here by Oprah) says: use your imagination and you can change your life.
The Word of God says, Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. Also, it says that you cannot change your stature by thinking about it, so the ideal body idea is moot.
If you look closely at the left corner, the small print says, "Life your best life." Hhmmmm...where have I heard THAT before. The idea is if you life your best life NOW then the eternity in Hell, just won't seem so bad? Please.
What the world needs is Jesus Christ the Savior. Repent (change your mind) and believe on Jesus Christ and lead every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. Because using your imagination is NOT going to make any difference. Even if it seems like it is working, Satan is a MASTER at deception and he will make you believe that your fantasies are really changing things. Trust me, they are not, but they are cementing your fate - away from God.
Time IS running out. Seek the Lord while He may be found.
