Freedom is not being perfect. When we are free, we have the power and right to act, speak or think as we want without hinderance or restraint. Freedom is knowing that I don’t have to live up to the perception that you have of me. The only way to recieve deliverance from any stronghold that has us in bondage, we must first free ourselves from people. God wants us to be transparent. He wants us to be honest about our struggles. There is no reason to hide anything from anyone because God already knows. Our focus should be on building our relationship with God and on our assignment. Everyone has something that they are dealing with or struggling with. Just because you can not see it does not mean it is not there. Many people often think they are free because we can not physically see their battle but that is a facade, a front and a cover up. This facade is created to conceal their reality. There are so many different struggles people deal with. Smoking, drinking and drugs are not the only struggles or strongholds. We may be free and delivered in one area but still struggle in another. So I ask you are you really free?
- If you can not handle someone else’s success, breakthrough or blessing. If you are operating in the spirit of jealousy, you are not free.
- If you are still harboring anger, bitterness and resentment towards people, you are not free. You have not forgiven them, you can’t even support them, why, because you are not free.
- If you still long for him or her, someone you know God has not sent to you, someone you know will cause more heartbreak then happiness, your soul is tied and you are not free.
We hide our struggles because we think people won’t like us anymore, that they won’t respect us or that they may look at us differently but the devil is a liar. When God has chose you, when God has appointed you, noone can deny the anoiting and calling on your life. God will establish you within the earth and catapult you into places noone has ever been. There is no need to worry about people and their opinions. God will allow your declarations to manifest, not because you’re perfect but because your faith is strong, because you believe and because he knows you love him. Do not focus on people, their thoughts nor actions. God will deliver you in his timing. That’s a word for you and for me. So I ask you again are you really free if not you got work to do and so do I.
