Topic: You Are Free Indeed [Saturday 4, February 2017]
“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36)
The devil is a liar. God has set you free. You are free indeed. God has forgiven you but you also need to forgive yourself. In Isaaiah. 43:25, God says, “I, even I, am He that blotted out thy transgressions for Mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.” If God has forgiven you and does not remember your sins anymore, why should you not forgive yourself? Jesus said to the adulterous Hebrew woman, “Neither do I condemn thee, go and sin no more.”
Whenever the devil wants to weigh you down with a guilty conscience, all you need to do is to resist him and he will flee from you. Say to him, “God has forgiven me. Jesus has forgiven me. The Holy Ghost has forgiven me and I have forgiven myself. Who are you, Satan, to judge me?”
Ephesians. 1:7 says, “In whom we have redemption through his blood ….” In heaven, on earth and in hell, the blood of Jesus is saying the same thing concerning you: “You are redeemed.” On the cross of Calvary, Jesus Christ has paid with His precious blood to buy you back and give you an inheritance in God.
He became a curse that you might inherit the blessing of Abraham. The blessings of Abraham include fruitfulness long life, peace, prosperity, healing, protection, multiplication, abundance, preservation, etc. – Your covenant right in Christ is fruitfulness in your spirit, soul, body, work, school, etc. –
Today, I catapult you into your inheritance. Go and take it by force.
WORD OF WISDOM: No grace, no blessing, for by grace we have been saved.
PRAYER/CONFESSION: O LORD, my Father, let the blessings of Abraham be multiplied upon me that I might witness Your abundant grace in my life, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
