HE WANTS TO SET YOU FREE
We will go through trials and tribulations. It is the trying of our faith that
worketh patience. As the Lord allows us to be pressed on all sides, the dross comes to the top and it is skimmed
away. As we go through these hard times where we are faced with illness, financial struggles, marital distress
and all the other stress of life, God wants us to lean on Him, to draw near to His Word and not to turn from Him.
It is darkest when we pull away and sin against God. He wants us to submit
to Him, repent and allow His grace
to be sufficient. We can not allow circumstances, false teachings and misled brethren to lead us astray.
We must keep our eyes on the Lord, Himself, and His Word. The answer to
all our questions is in the Word of God.
It is the desire of the Lord to reveal Himself and His ways to us. When we have an understanding of Godís dealings, we can begin to rise above our circumstances. It is difficult to be overcomers when down deep within our heart is fear, confusion, rejection and doubt. We become tossed to and fro and are at the mercy of our circumstances. Jesus wants to set us free. We need to seek Him. Meditate upon His Word. Pray! This will enlighten the eyes of our understanding and strengthen us in our inner man. Our faith must be in the truth of His Word. We must know what it says. We will stand alone before God, responsible for what we have believed and walked in.
How can we stand believing for victory if we are not familiar and acquainted with Him. Do you know that Jesus and the Word are one. Do you know God or of Him? Do you know what He wants of you and from you? Do you know what He requires and expects of you? Have we turned into a body of believers that expects and requires of Him and does not submit and obey His will?
Search your hearts, be honest with yourself and be honest with God. He is waiting with infinite patience and everlasting love to reveal Himself to you. He loves you and wants you to respond to His love. Be one with the Lord as He is one with the Father. Abide in Him. He wants to set you free.
