… At that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
The will of God is for us to fly high in life; for us to be whole in every area of our lives.
Yet not every Christian manifests the will of God.
This scripture gives us a poignant insight into why this is so: If Christians don’t know their covenant, it is as though they are living their lives without God.
In order for a person to get hold of the manifestation of God’s promises contained in His Word, he has to focus less on the problem he is facing and more on the answer from the Word. He must put God in remembrance of that Word in full expectation of it coming to pass, and not get hung up on “being real;” or “just saying it how it is.”
A lot of people don’t fly high, they are broke, sick, alone, depressed, get fired, lose opportunities and can never prosper because they DO AND SAY EVERYTHING THEY FEEL LIKE.
Freedom is not the ability to do and say what you WANT. Freedom is the ability to do and speak AS YOU OUGHT. I wonder how your wrong concept of freedom has already cost you and will cost you in the future.
Freedom is when you mature to the point that you RULE YOUR SPIRIT as opposed to your emotions running your life. When doing what’s necessary as regards both your covenant and the daily responsibilities of life, becomes the most important thing to you, then you will be ready to RULE YOUR WORLD.
It takes more strength to ONLY DO what you NEED to do in order to accomplish your purpose and be effective than it does to do and say everything you think or feel.
Real freedom is rooted in self-control, which is not the same as bondage. We restrict our own freedom in order to create and accomplish something far bigger than just feeding our own individual liberty.
Make a decision to rule your spirit and emotions and get onto your covenant. Take the promises of God’s Word and let Him know, “Your Word says I am healed, and since that is my final authority, I expect to be well.
The ability to rule in any arena starts with getting a hold of yourself first. That is the secret of consistent conquest and victory.
