A life of bondage can play strange tricks on the mind and heart, just ask an elephant who knows.Recently while visiting the zoo with my family I was curious to why an elephant tied to a small stake in the ground did not yank it up and be on its way. The animal's handler explained that baby elephants tied to similar stakes learn they can't break free. As elephants grow older and stronger, they don't test the stake again--thereby remaining trapped by what should be an obsolete restraint.
There are many of us who have escaped in some dramatic ways the bondage of legalism, abuse and addiction yet still stay trapped and chained to our captors when God has set us marvelously free.
Jesus has given us wings to fly- our wings names?
Mercy and Grace.
These beautiful gifts are meant to make us fly but to begin the process of flight we must recognize that the chains that once held us, no longer have any power over us.
What Jesus has made free is free indeed.
It's time to test the restraints- walk out onto the water- dare to claim by faith the victory that is yours and purchased by Christ.
Your freedom was purchased on Calvary- the fear that tyrants and devils instill in you are not true- God has promised us a sound mind, He casts out fear.
Those voices that tell you there is no hope, lie. They lie!
Beloved one- It's time to fly.
The wings of grace and mercy will take you above all fear, all condemnation and all judgement.
-Walk in Love-
Fly in Grace and Mercy
Soar in the freedom of Christ
Beloved one- it seems we have so much in common. It seems as if just when we begin the journey to freedom we realize how much this journey has truly just begun. There are so many lies to shed, so much Truth to learn. Where are you on your journey?
I'd love to hear your voice.
