Put Fear Behind You and Embrace The New
”For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” 1 John 5:4 (KJV)
Well today begin by saying I have the victory, and yes you do. These past 21 days we have worked at crucifying our flesh so we may live a life of abundance that God has promised. We have been pronouncing a benediction over our fears, emotions, rejections, abandonments, and those things that so easily beset us.
Are we now ready to run the race that has been set before you to obtain the prize? It’s time for us to buckle down and move forward. It’s time for the pressing towards the mark of the high calling. We must know this race is not given to the swift nor to the strong.
“I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.” Ecclesiastes 9:11(KJV)
“But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” Matthew 24:13(KJV)
Let us begin by letting this mind which was in Christ Jesus be in us. Take on an attitude that we will not live in fear or be in bondage to the vices of the enemy. Change our posture and allow his love to become perfected in us. Remember perfect love cast out all fear, because fear has torment.
“Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:17-18
At this stage of our walk we refuse to allow the spirit of fear to paralyze us from becoming all that God has purposed in your life. It will not keep us from obtaining those things our Heavenly Father has given to us, and our Lord Jesus Christ has purchased for us through His blood.
Remember when we do not crucify our flesh we give it authority and power not only to speak in our lives but authority to control us. However, we will not be controlled by our flesh or emotions. We have come to this point now that we have made a conscious decision to walk in the newness of life that Christ has promised.
Yes, old things have passed away and behold all things have become new. Wow, I am excited about where God is taking us and ready to walk in great power and great victory knowing that we will have good success.
Remember, God told Joshua:
“Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.” Joshua 1:3 (KJV)
“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” Joshua 1:8 (KJV). Remember that we are not only heirs of the promise we are joint heirs with Christ Jesus.
It’s time to stop running and start obeying and walking in the statues that God has ordained for our lives. “If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:” Isaiah 1:19 (KJV). We can do this and we can do this together, reflect on the Word of God that informs us that we are part of the body. The whole body is designed to operate and function as God has place each member in the body. For us to operate, outside of the body is to go against our creator and His original design and purpose that was intended for each of us. Recall we are a new creature and we have the greater one living inside.
Crucifying our flesh is a good thing. It becomes a sweet savor in the nostrils of our God! We no longer walk to the dictates of the flesh, but we walk in the realm of the spirit.
“And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)” Ephesians 2:1-5 (KJV)
Continue to crucify your flesh and remember we die daily. Say to yourself today: I (_Put your name here_) will not allow my flesh to disqualify me from receiving the blessings of the Lord. I decree that my flesh when I see it or feel it rising I will put the Word of God on it. My flesh, will, desires nor my emotions will no longer keep me from walking out my purpose, destiny and the promises that have been spoken over my life. Which has been spoken over me before the foundations of the earth. Today I render my flesh, mind, will and emotions, intellect, and etc. POWERLESS and DEFENSELESS. I am now ready and capable of revenging all disobedience when my obedience is fulfilled.
“And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.” 2 Corinthians 10:6 (KJV)
I deliver unto you an eviction notice over my mind, will, emotions, intellect, and everything else that will easily beset me. I belong to God and make Jesus Christ lord of my life.
