FREE YOUR MIND AND BE FREE INDEED
In the world today we find that people are filled with anxious desires to overcome their present lot in life. Anxieties are running deep in their veins, being faced with much lack of everything that this world has to offer and in their heart of hearts not being able to have the basics necessaries that GOD has promised to them that love and believe in the LORD. Nevertheless, I say to all the people, know that God never makes a promise that he will not fulfill. Just hold onto God’s unchanging hands and your storehouse will never be bare. You see, God has provided the world with all the necessary things for man’s survival in this world. Remember, there are three basics things that we need for our survival and they are; the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat. These three basics necessities, God provides them in great abundances’ and they are FREE and without germs are diseases. FREE YOUR MIND AND BE FREE INDEED
But now I can just here you saying, “I need a job, and without a job how can I have food on my table for me and my family to eat, clothes for my children to wear, money to pay my mortgage and car note, money to keep the lights and gas on in my house, money to send my kids to college. I will grant you these are important things to consider in helping offset some of these burdens that you are now facing, but are they really the most important things you need to do in order to have a healthy and prosper life style? Think deeply on this for a moment before you continue reading the rest of the story!
Now I say to you, listen carefully to what the word has to say about all of this, it says’ “If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds.
“Has anyone by fussing in front of the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? All this time and money wasted on fashion—do you think it makes that much difference? Instead of looking at the fashions, walk out into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They never primp or shop, but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them.
“If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, and do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.
“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes. (Matthew 6:25-34 MSG)
You see, in this passage Jesus is trying to bring you into the realization that you are important to Him and you are free of all yokes and bondage of man’s rule over you. It is not man that is going to provide you with the necessities of this life, but it is God who provides all of those who believe. DO YOU BELIEVE?
The first prerequisite of having the great abundances of this life is to be set FREE. Your mind has to be FREE of the bondage that is keeping you from having all the things that you desire in this world. It is not that man is not providing you with a job to meet your basics needs that is hindering you from having. It is your own thought process that is keeping you from having; your dependences upon another man to provide you with a job, when God has already told you to use your own thought process and you can have anything that you may desire. Free your mind and be free indeed. If the Son of God Sets You FREE, you must realize the greatest news of all and that is, “You are truly FREE.” At a time when Jesus was speaking truth to power, this is what he said to the Jews and what he is saying to you and I right here and now, “Then Jesus turned to the Jews who had claimed to believe in him. “If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure. Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will FREE you.” (John 8:31-32 MSG)
These are the words of truth that were birthed in you from the beginning of time. They are the words that will allow you to create that job that you are concern about in order to be in a position to meet your basic worldly needs. They are the words that will bring about that change from the old man to the new. They are the words that you can take to the cashier at your bank, present them with a check with whatever amount you desire at the time and be guaranteed it will be cashed with no questions asked. You are the ruler of your life, the power given to you by the maker and creator of this world. No man holds power over you but the one you give to hold such power. And when you are ready to make the change and your determination is so great that you are willing to do whatever is necessary to be the true ruler of your life, the new person in you will show up and nothing can stop you from rising to take your place in this world of great abundance. The time is now for you to, “FREE YOUR MIND AND BE FREE INDEED!”
