Living In Freedom

on February 6, 2017

Lord we thank you for today and the opportunity you have given us to become free from what has held us captive.  If we are not aware of what is holding us in bondage in our lives, Lord make us so aware of it in a way that we know it is you telling us where we are enslaved and need to be free. Lord you said in your word, that your sheep know your voice.  So speak to us today if we are bondage and don’t know it.  Show us what we need to see in order for us to walk in the freedom that you have already given us.  Like you said in Galatians 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.  Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.  Help us to walk more in your Spirit and less in our flesh.  Romans 8:5 (AMP) For those who are according to the flesh and are controlled by its unholy desires  set their minds on and pursue those things which gratify the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit set their minds on and seek those things which gratify the Holy Spirit.  God we need you in order to be able to walk in your Spirit, so that we may set our minds and actions on things that are pleasing to you.  Lord help us to turn over what ever it is that is weighing us down, keeping us in the dark or hindering us from moving into the incredible life that you have for us.  Lord as we walk in this week let us cast our burdens on you, releasing the weight of it and know that you will sustain us.  Lord you will never allow the consistenly righteous to be moved,slip,fall or fail as your word says in psalm 55:22.  Because God you are our refuge and strength an ever-present help in trouble as it says in Psalm 46:1.  Let us do as it says in Isaiah 43:18-19 Do not remember the former things, or ponder the things of the past. God guide us in taking our thoughts captive and meditating on what your word says about us day and night.  Fill us God with more of you and less of ourselves.  Lord as we overcome being free in whatever area we are struggling in or that you bring awareness of where we need to get free from let us do as it say in Philipians 3:13-14 I do not consider that I have made it my own yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the [heavenly] prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.  Help us God to not allow anything we are currently going through or anything from our past to entangle us in shackles, chains or bondages.  We pray that every wall is torn down that we have put up  to protect ourselves from things or people, and we give you complete authority over our protection from people, things and situations that are out of our control.   Free us from what others have said about us,  or what we think they thought about us.  Free us from the approval that we sometimes feel we need from others and free us from caring about the dispproval that people give us in my acts of obedience to what you have called us to do.  Lord let us not walk anymore enslaved to anything or anyone but you.  Lord as your word says in John 14:27 Let your perfect peace calm me in every circumstance and give me courage and strength for every challenge. But Lord let us walk in today as a new creature that you have made me to be as it says in 2 Corinthians 5:17-18 Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life]. But all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ [making us acceptable to Him] and gave us the ministry of reconciliation [so that by our example we might bring others to Him].  Lord help us to pass on what you have taught us in seeking you and our own freedom to help someone else in bondage.  Let us from this day walk in the new life that you have given us through us finding freedom in you.  For we know God that all things are working together for our good to them that love God according to Romans 8:28.  As you mold us and every situation and circumstance to work together for our benefit help us to not be anxious about anything but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving present our request to you and the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus as it says in Philippians 4:6-7.  For Lord we know you hear the prayers of the righteous and you said that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.  So God we are calling on you because we need you to help us walk in total freedom today.  Convict us in our spirit if you have revealed to us what has us in bondage and we are still walking in slavery to it.  Keep reminding us Holy Spirit that we are new creatures and we are no longer enslaved to our past, present or future.  Let everything in our life be in complete alignment with your word, your ways and your will for our lives.  May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleaseing in your sight Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer as it says in Psalm 19:14. We thank you God for your incredible steadfast love that never ceases, your mercies never to an end, they are new every morning; great is your faithfullness as your word says in Lamentations 3:22-23.  We love you and appreciate all you do.  In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen!!!
