True Freedom







 
So,
I was out for a walk tonight and listening to some worship music and
this came on my playlist. I am a huge fan of Bethel Music. It is
powerful and it can break you to your very core. As I was listening to
this song, I could feel God speaking to be me...
 
The truth given to me was...
Why do you worry so much?
Why do you fear so much?
Why do you not fully trust?
Why don't you give it all up to me?

See,
we hold on to so much stuff. One of the biggest is our time, talent,
and possessions. We are so afraid that if we do not maintain control
(or a the image of control) then we will lose everything. Guess what,
you can either give it to God or the world will take it, but you control
NOTHING!

God
liberates us when we cast off our meager and pitiful attempts to
control our lives. We must give it ALL TO HIM and then we are no
longer slaves. I am not sure who said it, but there is a famous quote
that says, "Show me your bank statement and show me your calendar, and
I’ll tell you where your true priorities are." If these are not FULLY
committed to Christ, then you are currently serving the god of self and
self control. Give these two items along with your life to Christ and
you will experience freedom! 
 
Allow me to share a few of the lyrics...
I am surrounded
By the arms of the father
I am surrounded
By songs of deliverance
We've been liberated
From our bondage
Were the sons and the daughters
Let us sing our freedom
 
Look at those first few words from the bridge... I AM SURROUNDED BY THE ARMS OF THE FATHER.  He is protecting you, He is freeing you, He is supporting you, HE IS DELIVERING YOU!  Trust Him and be not afraid!  

I hope this blesses you tonight!  

God Bless!

-Michael

The Great Divide

  I'M OVER IT!  Yeah, that is probably not the best way to open a blog post that you want people to read, but it properly describes my feelings towards virtually everything...  There is a popular trend on Tik Tok right now that describes our world right now.  I am not going to encourage you to go find it, because it does have profanities in it.  I came across it by an accident.... But after I saw it, my thought was, this is America right now.  A guy yells, what's your name and the other guy answers, and then he yells a profanity back at him.  Then the other guy says, what's your name, and the bit repeats itself.  These guys obviously did not know each other, just got introduced, and were divided.  Yes, I know it is a Tik Tok and is meant for entertainment, but it is a picture into our lives today in this country, in this world...  Ok, let me explain myself a little and if you will indulge me and walk with me on this to it's conclusion, I think we will find ourselves on
