“This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:” (Ephesians 4:17-18)

We should not walk (behave) the way Gentiles (unbelievers) walk, in the vanity, (emptiness) of their minds and in the blindness of their hearts.

Our minds and our hearts were created to be full of something!

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion…. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” (Genesis 1:26 27)

You and I are made in God’s image and in Gods likeness. Gods’ heart is full of His thoughts, His Word, His image, His vision, and His perceptions.

Your heart was created for one thing and one thing only. It was created to be filled with God’s Word, Gods thoughts, Gods desires, and Gods perceptions!

Without Gods Word in your heart you are blinded, you have no vision; you have wrong perceptions, and are separated from the overcoming, dominating powerful life of God!

We need to have hearts filled with a real, fresh, and relevant Word of God to overcome the deceptions and temptations of the enemy.
