The things we see and hear affect our lives whether we saw and heared them consciously or not. If you were told from your childhood that you could walk on water and all you saw were movies were human beings walked on water, you would grow up with the mentality that anybody could walk on water.
No wonder children try anything, they try to ‘touch fire’, ‘eat cockroaches’ and ‘fly’ without fear because they have not seen and heard enough things for them to live their lives according to the information they receive. Jesus said every one of us should receive the kingdom as a child, meaning that we should remove the information we received about life from the world (there are no jobs after school, the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer, by age sixty, you should start having athritis etc) and ‘try’ anything we see in the word. The world’s information are false because God never gave them, but because these are things we see and hear consciously and unconsciously everyday, we could get carried along and believe the same things.
Faith comes by hearing and we walk by faith not by sight. Guard your heart. As much as you can, control the information you receive about any sibject in life and live only in God’s realm. Remember the word has declared you victorious, highly favoured and a super success.
(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in SEEING and HEARING, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
