I was chatting with a friend about the need to have a ready state of thought to receive God’s ideas that help and heal. We came up with an analogy to illustrate how the human mind needs to get competing clutter out of the way for God’s fresh new inspiration to land in thought.
Here’s what we came up with…
The human mind is like a landing strip for airplanes.
Planes land when the runways are clear.
If the airstrip is cluttered with landed planes, there is no room for new planes to land. They remain hovering in the sky until a space is cleared.
God’s angel messages are like airplanes hovering in the sky waiting to land and deliver valuable cargo.
“Other planes” could be fear, worry, drowsiness, apathy, indifference, selfishness, anger, hate, and any other quality of mortal mind that would crowd out God’s inspirations.
To allow for God’s planes, or angel-messages to land, the human mind needs to clear its runways. It needs to get the undesirables off the strip so the helpful ideas of God have space to land and park.
Is your mental airstrip clear so God’s ideas can land in your thought and bless you with their payload?
