That speck in the distance is my car. A couple of years ago I could not be this far away from my car… Especially alone… And jogging. That would be a train wreck of anxiety, fear, and panic attacks. But God! God is able and He is still in the healing business. He’s not out of miracles. If God is the same yesterday, today, and forever then He still has the same healing power that Jesus had in the scriptures, He still has the same miraculous power that created the heavens and the earth. A wise man said that you can’t have a natural approach with spiritual things and expect supernatural results. You just can’t! I feel like The Lord told me today that some of us are honoring our lives more than we honor Him. We fear losing our fleshly bodies because we don’t truly know Him or know where we’re going as believers. We idolize our lives as if we are supposed to preserve them forever on earth. This is why so many deal with anxiety, fear, and depression. We are afraid to lose our lives. We fear death.
Matthew 16:25 (NASB)
25 For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.
We long to live forever but we’re confused. We were not made to live forever on this side of eternity.
Too many fear death and this is a major seed of anxiety and depression. Jesus came to set the captive free. He said don’t become slaves again. He said it is FINISHED. By His stripes we were healed. Don’t pick up bondage this world lays at your feet. We tell mountains to move in the Name of Jesus and they move! Darkness flees at the mention of His Name! Demons tremble when Jesus comes near. The only power the devil has over you is that which YOU give him. I bind the enemy’s work in your life. I declare by Jesus’ mighty power that you are free from the lies of the devil and his demons. I declare that you fear no more because God holds you in His hand and protects you. I pray that the scales will fall from your eyes and you will see the trap that has been set before you. I pray you will choose the truth even when you don’t feel like it! And I pray that you experience FREEDOM like you have never experienced it before! In Jesus’ beautiful, holy name…Amen!
