Break bondage in every area

"that every man should set free his male and female slave—a Hebrew man or woman—that no one should keep a Jewish brother in bondage."- Jer.34:9
“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage." - Exodus 2:20

Bondage is defined as: The state of being a slave.  A state of being greatly constrained by circumstances or obligations. 

There are so many circumstances in life that keep us in bondage outside of the normal and/or obvious ones.  The important thing to remember is that no one is exempt from bondage.  Regardless of social status, money in the bank, health, etc. anyone in any situation can be in bondage.  It's easy to point fingers at people like addicts and criminals because of their circumstances, but make sure you are examining yourself as well.  The millionaire can be in bondage to his/her money, the hard-worker in bondage to his/her job; getting a little deeper a parent can be in bondage to their children or vise versa and the "every day church going, bible reading, roof raising prayer warrior" can be in bondage to their church.  Oh yeah, I went there.  Before you get all up in arms and stop reading hear me out, satan will use whomever is not paying attention. 

We pray daily and put on the armor of God and cover, cancel, bind and block agendas but we tend to let our guards down at church.  The one place we should really be on high alert.  We should hope and pray that un saved folks are coming into the church every service, that is the purpose - to seek and save lost souls right?  So why is it that we get in church, leave our purses and such laying around unattended because "it's church", we take everyone and everything at face value because "it's church" and we feel like if the minister is reading a scripture we don't need to see it because he/she is a minister and they know the word. 

Corinthians 12 talks about having different roles within the body of Christ, none of those roles include not knowing the word for ourselves.  Our ministers, teachers, spiritual leaders and even mentors in within he body of Christ are there to teach and guide us.  Not do it for us, no one just can get you to Heaven, you have to speak and believe the words yourself.  If your child's teacher stood in front of the class, taught the literature, gave all the answers during the test and physically did the homework for them you would be highly upset because they wouldn't learn a thing. 
"But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was." - James 1:22
Being a doer is in prayer and in works.  We hear and are given revelation of the word by our spiritual leaders and it is up to us to go back and study and really get even more revelation and self clarification in the word.  How else can you fully explain it to someone else if you are only mimicking what you heard? 

When you fall into that type of bondage it is very hard to get out or even realize that you are in bondage.  You feel like you are just being obedient and serving the Lord, but you have to be careful and make sure that you are truly serving the Lord and not man.  How you pray, what you pray, how you give, how you tithe, how you worship, how you praise; it's all between you and God.  When we fall into a rhythm of only being able to pray one way because "that's what sister so and so said I should do" or we only sit on the left side of the church because "brother so an so said you can't really receive on the right side"...that's bondage.  Waiting for someone to tell you how much to tithe before filling out your offering envelope, instead of praying on it and giving what you've prayed on...that's bondage.  2 Peter 2:19 talks about us being slaves to whatever overcomes us.  We need to serve God and all times and not be pleasers of man. 

We go to church to learn, fellowship and receive revelation in a holy environment.  Not for a fashion show, not to see who makes the most money and not to find out what our next move should be.  Our ministers, spiritual leaders, elders, etc. are there to guide us teach us and help mold us.  Getting to a point where we cannot think and make moves without their consultation can very quickly become bondage if you are not paying attention.  And if you are a spiritual mentor, leader, counselor, etc. to someone make sure that you are not keeping them in bondage by allowing them to put you before God.

Break loose from any and all bondage in your life.

Hearing God's voice

It's been a while since I've posted here and it should never be this long again.  This was ministered to my spirit by the Holy Spirit and I'm being obedient in sharing.  I try not to force the word out when I share it I want it to be pure and spirit led, I hear God all of the time and this was my confirmation.  Anyway Have a blessed day...

For who is there of all flesh who has heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of fire, as we have, and lived?  - Deuteronomy 5: 26
[God's voice may be heard by man when] he is chastened with pain upon his bed and with continual strife in his bones or while all his bones are firmly set.     - Job 33: 19
When you are in tribulation and all these things come upon you, in the latter days you will turn to the Lord your God and be obedient to His voice.                   - Deuteronomy 4: 30
I am able to do nothing from Myself [independently, of My own accord--but only as I am taught by God and as I get His orders]. Even as I hear, I judge [I decide as I am bidden to decide. As the voice comes to Me, so I give a decision], and My judgment is right (just, righteous), because I do not seek or consult My own will [I have no desire to do what is pleasing to Myself, My own aim, My own purpose] but only the will and pleasure of the Father Who sent Me.    - John 5: 30
When you pray about something and God gives you a clear answer.  You know what you need to do.  The enemy comes in and brings confusion.  Don't get confusion twisted with God's will.  Confusion is not of the Lord.  If God tells you to move, but there's a small hiccup in the move, don't lose hope, press through.  If God brings you your helpmate and says this is who you're supposed to marry, don't second guess it when "old flames" come back into your life.  If God says "this" is your destiny, when you don't succeed the first time it doesn't mean that "it was meant to be".  That is nothing but the devil bringing confusion into the mix trying to make you abort the visions that God has called you to birth.  When you're in the hole and there's dirt kicked on you, shake it off and climb higher.  Press forward and PUSH - Pray Until Something Happens!

Uniforms are not necessary

Understand this...Being a believer isn't a uniform situation.  Yes, there is a foundation from which we all believe, however, we do not all do things the same - nor do we have to. 
"4There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. 6And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. 7But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all..."
Don't base how you praise, give, honor, worship or live on anyone but God.  Sister so and so may very well be able to give $5000 but that doesn't mean that she is more blessed than you.  We all have gifts and talents that can be used to further the kingdom and God blesses all of us in different ways.  Yes we are blessed in every area of our lives, but how those blessings come for each one of us or each family is very diverse.
Don't ever let the devil or his demons make you feel like you are less than a blessed and highly favored child of God.  Our Father knows what He is doing and, if you give it to Him, has our lives under control.  Don't make comparisons, that causes jealousy and eventually strife.  Be happy for your brothers and sisters in Christ when they are blessed or are a blessing and understand that we are not robots in the word.  We are proactively seeking the word of God and interceding everyday.  Nothing is uniform.

Surgery Time Anxiety

I've been running around getting prepared for my surgery and time has seemed to be on crack.  I am excited for the ultimate outcome/goal of the surgery and I'm prayed up and ready to go.  Nonetheless, I'm human and nervous and I've had a hard time sleeping for the past week. 

For those that do not know, I have pansinusitis and I'm having bilateral sinus surgery tomorrow morning to correct it.  I started having issues about 4 years ago.  I kept being admitted to the hospital for asthma issues.  So for about 2 years I was treated strictly for asthma and doctors were focusing on getting my asthma under control.  Turns out they were focusing in the wrong area and the root cause was the sinus issues.  The blockags cause frequesnt infections and the post nasal drip causes breathing difficulties.  For someone with asthma, it was just a double whammy.  Anyway I went through one awful ENT who had me on antibiotics for over a year and finally found the one that will be performing my surgery tomorrow.  I've heard amazing things about him.  He's been doing this for 26 years so...

I'll be off work for a few weeks recovering.  I hope I don't go stir crazy.  There are 50 million thoughs running through my mind.  I know that there are more serious surgeries done every day, and some may think me to be ridiculous for the amount of nerve issues I have right now, but it doesn't change the fact so whatever I guess lol. 

I have to stay focused.  Lord I trust you and know that I am healed and all is well.  I am not perfect in anyway so please forgive me for the anxiety that is running through my body right now.  I know that I am your child and in your hands.  Thank you Lord for the victory.  Amen!

Tomorrow morning at 7am I'll be preparing to go under the scope.  I'll be at the hospital at 5am.  I don't know how much sleep I'll get tonight, but I suppose that doesn't really matter does it?  I feel reallty bad for 'M', he's been staying up with me for the past few nights and trying to be a comfort.  I really appreciate him. 

I have a list of stuff to get for pre op preperation.  I'm trying to dust and get everything ready for my return home after surgery.  Hypo allergenic stuff.  Since I'll be unblocked, I will be way more sensitive to my allergens and need to get what I can under control.  I will start allergy shots about 3 weeks after surgery to maintain control of that stuff.  I'll blog more after the surgery when I'm up to it.  :)

He Loves us through our Good and Bad

I had to share this song I heard by J. Moss.  I heard it a while back on "Sunday Best" and it immeadiately belssed me.  It is a constant reminder to me that God's love for us is unconditional.  Although, He may not always be pleased with out decisions and/or actions.  He truly loves us through our good and bad.  Luke 15:11-32 is a perfect reminder of God's compassion, grace and unconditional love for His flock... 
20 So he got up and went to his father.
“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.
21 “The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’
22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. 23 Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. 24 For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.
 God and the Heavens celebrate when we find our way home.  My Grandparents generally are in bed early and the house is locked up by 9pm.  I remember when I started going back to church, I was taing classes on Tuesday evenings and I would stop by and say hi after my classes.  They started to stay awake to wait for me to come by because they were so excited to see me back on fire for the Lord.  There was no judgement or anything, just praise and encouragement.  It became our thing for a while and it was a blessing to me.  It was just another way the God showed me that He loves me and has never stopped and He has placed people all around me that love me and care for me regardless. God is love!  When I have a bad day or lose my temper (*gasp* I'm not perfect!) I find so much comfort in this song because it's another reminder to me that God loves me anyway.  Even while others are judging "the Christian girl" that is only human...God love me and all of His flock through it all. We are truly his bride (no gender) sickness, health, better, worse and everything in between.  I am so blessed by the song the the Holy Spirit put in J Moss' heart.  I'm glad the Lord loves me (and you) through good and bad!

When the newness wears off

Remember when you were young and Summer was coming to an end?  You started to get prepared for the new school year; new backpack, school clothes, supplies, etc.  If you were in Jr. High or Sr. High School you would go up to the school a few weeks before and get your schedules.  You normally planned to meet up with friends to see what everyone's schedules looked like.  Planned outfits for the first week and talked about everything.  Then along came "First Days of School Eve"; you sit your clothes out perfectly down to under garments, you load your backpack, make sure you and your friends have a plan to meet up somewhere before the bell rings, you can't sleep, you're full of anxiety and excitement and everything else.  You get to school and see you friends and parade around in new clothes like you're walking down the catwalk.  There's laughs, people joking around, jocks prepping for practice, so much chatter and business until the bell rings.  You go to your classes finish the day and then go home.  The further into the school year you get, the more the newness and excitement wears off and now you have troubl waking up and you have no motivation to get homework done (except the threat of a beat down from your parents).  You and your fiends start gowing apart a little because everyone is into different things.  Some are athletic, some are bookworms, some are "mr or mrs popular", and you seem to have become a bit of a loner.  So you decide not to care and just fall under the radar.  Building up resentment towards people because they are, seemingly, happier than you are.

As believers, this is what tends to happen when we decide to become too religious or over saved.  When we choose not to allow a mentor into our lives.  When we choose to be the "perfect" Christian and condemn others around us for the very things we used to do ourselves.  The word of God says the we are not to juge unless we will be judged ourselves.  Please understand that you are not alone in feelin this way.  You get saved and you do the "hallelujah and Amen" dance for a few months (if that) and then you slowly fade away.  You don't feel like getting up for church.  You hit snooze instead of getting up to pray, you would rather talk about a brother or sister in the church instead of praying for them.  Eventually, you just stop going all together and figure you can do it on your own...until you can't.

Now I'm not saying that you're going to hell if you miss a bible study or church event once in a while.  But I am saying that if you have a choice to prioitize, you should always prioritize God in your life.  It's so much easier to push God to the side and deal with things of the world.  Duh, satan wants you to fall and he is lord over things of this world so of course they are going to be way more glittery with flashing  lights to appeal to your flesh.  But if you take the road less traveled and yield to the word of God, I promise you won't miss out on a thing.  Worldly possessions are instat gratification, but God's word and His inheritence is eternal.

So while it does take some work to maintain a relationship in the word, know that it is well rewarded.  We are heirs and joint heirs with Jesus.  God has promised that we shall eat of the good of the land and inherit the long as we follow Him and obey his commandments.  Trust me when I say the world is not all its cracked up to be.  Instant gratification is not worth it...Eat of the good of the Land for eternity!
