TODAY the joy of the Lord truly is my Strength 🙂
I am THRILLED to be Alive and a Slave to the King of Kings, YESHUA!
I am feeling WILDLY FREE, as though I have been wiped CLEAN… And I’m coming into greater understanding of the Good News that is the Gospel of Christ …
Slavery to the World
= Serving/Exalting oneself – Eyes on Self
= Dissatisfaction, a nagging Unfulfillment despite appearances
Slavery to Christ
=Obedience to His Commands, Serving others – Eyes on Yeshua
= A FREEDOM unlike any other, a JOY that surpasses anything the world can offer!
SO! This is the Liberation He came bring us! WHAT A BREATH OF FRESH AIR TO BE FREED OF OLD UNSEEN SHACKLES, whose job was to bear great weight whilst remaining a mystery.
I remember that historical moment, when Paul & Silas were imprisoned in Rome, yet the foundations of the prison were SHAKEN by a great earthquake and ALL doors swung open …
Suddenly freedom comes … ALL DOORS OPEN :)
Though ours were prisons that we were not even aware we were in ! Prisons that housed the mind of man with limitation, lack of faith, unfruitful belief systems.
Yet The Holy Spirit cannot be contained, limited or imprisoned! For He is the Spirit of Truth, and with the Truth, Liberation comes running!
How Delightful this is … The Pure Joy of the Holy Spirit that is not dependant on the acquisition of anything or event.
A JOY that wants to be shared freely so that OTHERS MAY LIVE ! So that all may join in the Celebration! That all may TASTE of the delicious Bread of Heaven!
How fascinating that to be Truly set Free ..we must be captive prisoners to Him 🙂
For the one who was a slave when called to faith in the Lord is the Lord’s freed person; similarly, the one who was free when called is Christ’s slave. ~ 1 Corinthians 7:22
and suddenly there came a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison house were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were unfastened. ~ Acts 16:26
