Yesterday morning I heard, “I am breaking open prison doors!” There is grace to break out of your personal prison, so let faith rise and move forward! Whom the Son sets free is free indeed! (Jn. 8:36)
“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;” (Is. 61:1, KJV)
Lay hold of the truth that you are free in Jesus Christ and break out of your prison. There is a fresh measure of grace in the breathing of Holy Spirit upon you to break free from the shackles of bondage to your past, wrong mindsets and unholy alliances. You are no longer a slave. Break free from negative thought patterns and the lies the enemy has spoken through others to keep you from walking in your true identity as a son or daughter of the Most High God – the old buried with Christ and raised up into new life – new; different from before; not formed by circumstances past, but newly created for the Glory of God!
“Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6:4 KJV)
Don’t let this season of remembering and celebrating the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior pass you by without availing yourself of His grace. He is FULL of grace and truth! (Jn. 1:14). Let His grace come upon you in revelation of truth – the truth is that He died and rose to give you new life, for you to be reconciled to the fullness of true identity and purpose that was given you before the world was formed.
“According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:” (Ephesians 1:4 KJV)
“Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,” (2 Timothy 1:9 KJV)
I declare to you that the same power that raised Christ from the dead dwells in your mortal body; there is overcoming power for this hour! Rise above the mind of the flesh and soul, and let the Mind of Christ take hold! It’s time to walk in newness of life. Every day, every morning, determine that you will walk in newness of life. Paul exhorts us to lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily does beset you! (Hebrews 12:1) Faithlessness is sin! (Rom. 14:23) Let faith arise on the truth at you have been set free; you are made new; you are living, breathing proof of the resurrection of Jesus Christ!
You have the mind of Christ, now take every through captive to obedience to His mind in the present moment. Wait and listen, what is He saying right now, in this instance? Walk in newness of thought life and speech life and you will see your circumstances change. Speak life, in faith, because God is good and He is working on your behalf. NOW faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. (Heb. 11:1) NOW – right now – Lay hold, speak it forth, continue in labor until the birth process is complete. You WILL see the goodness of God in the land of the living!
“I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.” (Psalm 27:13 KJV)
I repeat, you WILL see the goodness of God in the living if you faint not in your faIth!!! Believe! He is with you, He is doing mighty things in the background working towards those things He has whispered to your heart in the night.
“In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:” (Ephesians 1:11 KJV)
He is working on your behalf to bring forth your inheritance! You have obtained it in the spirit, it is in your spiritual account, and He is working all things to the end of it being brought forth to the earth. Trust Him and continue to stand in faith, declaring those things that be not as though they are. It is time to rise and shine as true sons and daughters who know how good their father is, and that He is faithful and true! Trust Him! His ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts. He is outside the bounds of our finite minds! Trust Him, He is moving and He is good! The world needs to see that we are people of FAITH in a GOOD GOD!
“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.” (Isaiah 60:1-2 KJV)
