EMBRACE CHOICE OF FREEDOM:
WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:
Oh, Lord, you will show me the path of life; in your presence is fullness of joy; at your right hand and pleasure forevermore (Psalm 16: 11; NKJV).
Today is a day you’ve yet to have had the opportunity to become an active participant as you arise to the glory of a new dawn. There are those among you who have been stripped of the worldly elements that had them bound, and they have decided to come clean before God—relinquishing their spirits completely to the will of God. My friends, what you have received, the anointing of God’s grace and power now place you in line with God’s plan and purpose for your life—believe and accept it in faith.
There is much to be learned as you prepare for significant change in life as you once knew it because for you all things become new. You have made the choice to be obedient (submissive), now walk in the newness (freshness) of life. For the scripture says; being made free from sin, you become the servants of righteousness (Romans 6:22).
You will discover that life will seem even more difficult as you make decisions and choices to shed some things, even some “friends.” Know without a doubt—trials will come, so, beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trail which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you. Rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when his glory is revealed you may also be glad with exceeding joy…for the Spirit of Glory and of God rests upon you (1 Peter 4:12-14).
As you prepare for transformation of your life, accept Christ as your strength, rock, fortress, deliver, shield and stronghold and you shall be equipped to endure the race. The scriptures say, …let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us (Hebrews 12:1). Jesus said, “In the world you may have tribulations, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
Now that you desire real life, treasure it by growing in Gods’ grace and wisdom, study his word and integrate his teachings into your life as you fulfill your created purpose. This day is blessed especially for you, peace!
