People of God,
When God delivers us we are made FREE! The chains of our past are broken! When God gives us the breakthrough that we needed, desired, we must protect and maintain it. How do we do this? By consistently seeking God for His direction, His strength, His protection, His ability to keep us in the right mind so that we do not lose the very thing that we prayed for. Those of us that go before God, humbly, admitting our weaknesses, the places we get caught up in sin, God is able to come in and do what needs to be done, within us, so that we can resist the temptation to fall back into the very thing that God delivered us from.
EVERY DAY is a struggle, this life is not easy. Temptations, like addictions, are constantly trying to invade us and detour us from reaching God. Our sins separate us from God, but when we are saved, God draws us to repentance, which yields back to Him our souls.
Are you willing to upkeep your deliverance? We must stay in constant, consistent communication with Christ. We must realize that we need God. We must be willing to acknowledge that without God, it is impossible to be delivered and stay delivered. Do not let the enemy snatch your deliverance from you!
Pray and surround yourself with a kind of people that believe in God’s deliverance and depend, rely on Him for their existence. Stay around prayer warriors and use the shield of faith….put on the whole Armor of God, God’s weaponry (Ephesians 6:10-18; 2 Corinthians 10:3-4) so that you can combat against the enemy’s devices (James 4:7). Hide amongst God. Know His Word. Trust His authority (power) and take on His freedom so that you are a direct descendant of what deliverance looks like (Psalm 34:17).
Do not let the enemy fool you (1 Peter 5:8-9); you, too, can be delivered!
Psalm 116:16 NIV | New International Version
Truly I am your servant, Lord;
I serve you just as my mother did;
you have freed me from my chains.
John 8:36 GW | God’s Word Translation
So if the Son sets you free, you will be absolutely free.
Galatians 5:1 CEB | Common English Bible
Christ has set us free for freedom. Therefore, stand firm and don’t submit to the bondage of slavery again.
Psalm 51:10 KJV | King James Version
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
