God came down to us as a man, tempted in every way we are tempted, experienced every emotion we experience, and yet He was without sin. He sent His only Son, Jesus, to restore us back to Him. Jesus, fully man, fully God; Emmanuel, God with us.
Think about that. Let that sink in, please.
He conquered sin and death because He was wholly submitted to the will of the Father.
His victory is our victory! He did this for us!
Are you seeking God? Is there an area in your life that you need a victory? Is there something holding you back from being who He has created you to be? Are the chains around your ankles keeping you from soaring to heights you have never known before? Are the cuffs on your wrists too heavy to even lift your arms? Is your pillow wet from your tears? Does it seem like all hell is breaking loose on you?
My friend, your victory waits for you to be wholly submitted to God. Do you trust Him? Can you honestly say, “Not my will, but Yours be done”?
Can you lay it all before Him and trust Him? Will you withhold nothing from Him?
Deliverance is spiritual surgery and it is warfare.
Jesus came to set us free from the bondage of sin and death. There are too many dead people walking around and the only way we can truly live is to die to ourselves and to live for Him. When you submit to Him, resist the devil, take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ and discern between truth and lie, then the devil has to flee from you. The enemy can’t reside in a home that has been swept clean and filled with His Holy Spirit.
So submit to [the authority of] God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him] and he will flee from you. James 4:1-8
God is not angry with you. He is full of compassion for you. He loves you without measure. He is for you, not against you.
Purpose in your heart and mind to submit to your Heavenly Father, knowing and trusting He is your Deliverer. And if He asks you to lay something down, trust it is for your good and be obedient. Allow Him to take the dirt away and He will wash you clean. Refresh yourself in His Holy Spirit.
I am not suggesting it will be easy, but with God all things are possible for those who believe.
Repeat after me…
Father, not my will, but Your will be done in my life. Be glorified in and through me. In Jesus Name, Amen.
