Imagine Your Life Without Trying To Fix It
Acts 10:38 How God anointed and consecrated Jesus of Nazareth with the [Holy] Spirit and with strength and ability and power; how He went about doing good and, [in particular, curing all who were harassed and oppressed by [the power of] the devil, for God was with Him.
Jesus went around healing all who were oppressed by the enemy. Yet we still live oppressed, we still live with the enemy constantly harassing us. Even though Jesus already healed us, even though He gave us authority over the enemy, we let the enemy control us with guilt and shame.
Today Jesus wants to set you free from shame, from that oppression the enemy has you imprisoned with, with the truth — with His truth.
How much of our lives have we lived in shame over something we did or something we keep doing? How much of our lives have we lived sinning over and over again with no control? Maybe its food: over eating. Or maybe it is buying more than you have money for? Maybe it’s jealousy? Maybe your temper is out of control? Maybe trying to prove something? Whatever it is, the truth of it stems from how you see yourself. Your sin, what you practice —is the result of the enemy oppressing you and harassing you with his distorted images of you. He plants in your thinking broken images of you that cause you try and fix them.
The reason most of us stay in that place is because we don’t know. We don’t know it is the enemy oppressing us. We don’t know that his attempts to steal, kill and destroy, in our lives is in the power we give him in our thinking. Yes the power we give him because we don’t know.
When we know the truth that Satan harasses and oppresses us in our sub consciousness with his lies —then can be set free. When we know his power in controlling us is with his distorted images we’re thinking, then we can take authority over him with that truth by changing those images.
Jesus said the truth will set you free (John 8:32).
Today if this is you, you can be set free from his oppression by knowing the truth. Just having the revelation knowledge, the truth will set you free.
2 Corinthians 10:5 [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One), AMPC
Take captive every thought and make it come into agreement with the Word of God. Thinking what God thinks and not thinking the lies of the enemy gives you the power to be set free from his oppression.
Coming into agreement with God and asking Him to help you to see you the way He sees you, and asking Him to help you to take captive your thoughts will empower you and heal you of that wrong thinking you have had.
Thinking in agreement with how God thinks is our instruction and when we do that the enemy isn’t able to control us any longer.
Looking at yourself through God’s eyes will set you free from the bondage of the enemy. The truth will set you free (John 8:32).
Living in a lie, living in agreement with the enemies suggestions —will keep you in bondage to that lie.
Whatever we did or keep doing is sin, which actually stems from the wrong image we have of ourselves.
Let me say it again, whatever sin you live in, you live in it because of that wrong image you carry of yourself. Thus you have to be set free of that lie (the wrong image) to be set free of the sin your practice.
Yes all we have to do is repent and ask for forgiveness. But how do we repent which is to go and sin no more with that distorted image of ourselves?
The answer is— decide to get rid of that image. Decide that whatever you look like is okay because God made us the way we are and in His likeness.
So much of the time we don’t see ourselves as God made us (like Him) but a broken image of who we are through not His eyes but the eyes of the enemy. Don’t look at yourself through the enemies eyes (which is a distorted lie) but through the eyes of God who said you are fearfully and wonderfully made. I love the Message translation —look at it with me. Take in every Word from God to you!
Psalm 139:13-16 Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; You formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body. You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day. MSG
He, God —is breath taking and He has made us like Him. He has intentionally put you together the way you are. Therefore there is nothing wrong with you. You don’t have to be ashamed of how you look and even where you are in your life.
Growing up has many stages and takes time. Appreciate where you are, enjoy you new adventures now because in time they will be past adventures. Past adventures are more fun if you can look to as happy memories that you may even be able to laugh about. It doesn’t matter your age but that you are free to mature without the mistaken thinking of there being something wrong with you.
Enjoy yourself, who God made you to be. Enjoy others and who God made them to be. If you like who you are, it will be easy to like who they are.
God is in love with you and wants you to know the truth that will set you from the bondage’s you live in. Let Him heal you and let Him show you how He sees you so you can love and be in awe of who you are. So you can see you how He sees you and then love you life and live free!
