5 Ways to Live Life Freely

It has been said that those who live by the Spirit walk by the Spirit. But what the heck does that mean? I’m not walking on clouds or anything. At least not in the natural realm, lol!

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. –Galatians 5:16 MSG

This always puzzled me. I mean we need to live here on planet Earth and work and love and provide for our families. It’s not like I am a Nun living in a convent or anything. Far from it. I am just another unfinished human trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ to finish my faith. God is faithful. He will complete what He started here on planet Earth. Jesus is the Author and Finisher of my faith. I think today I will live my life freely in the Spirit, love my fellow brothers and sisters, and trust God for the rest.

My counsel is this: Live freely, animated and motivated by God’s Spirit. Then you won’t feed the compulsions of selfishness. For there is a root of sinful self-interest in us that is at odds with a free spirit, just as the free spirit is incompatible with selfishness. These two ways of life are antithetical, so that you cannot live at times one way and at times another way according to how you feel on any given day. Why don’t you choose to be led by the Spirit and so escape the erratic compulsions of a law-dominated existence?  – Galatians 5:165-18 MSG

5 Ways to Live Life Freely

  1. Let love be your motivation. Choose love. Choose mercy. Choose grace. Freely you have received, now freely give.
  2. Treasure the Presence of God. Make time just to sit at His feet.
  3. Allow the Spirit of the Lord to change you from glory to glory. The Lord is the spirit of Revelation. He will reveal new things to you as you spend time with Him. Let Him lead.
  4. Let your faith be fueled for action. Faith without works is dead. Choose to be a servant of the Most High God. Put others first.
  5. Set your mind on the things above. The Word of God is powerful and will transform our minds. Set your heart to seek out what the Lord has to say.

The Savior Within You

The Savior Within You

He’s the Savior with you, His Spirit – your guide.

He will open your eyes now, His light you will see.

The bars that you see in the cell of your mind,

don’t exist in the world of God’s Precious Son.

*

Open your eyes to the great mystery,

for He is the one who was, is, and will be.

It’s not about you, this life and death thing;

He made you, He called you, God’s glory to bring.

*

Your choice to make now if you humbly agree,

Is to choose to be silent, and set His life free.

Jesus reversed the curse when He hung on that tree,

so you do not have to date the enemy.

*

Satan’s a liar, a thief in the night,

trying to steal all things from your mind.

Stand firm in the Name of Jesus and live.

Call Satan a liar, and then watch Him flee.

*

Test every thought daily,

throw lies out of your mind.

And choose Jesus life freely,

peace and serenity find.

*

Jesus died to save you,

not to shame or condemn.

Those thoughts come from the Devil,

to throw you off guard.

*

Walk by faith in the Spirit,

and soon you will see,

God restores all,

and His peace never ends.

*

I hear Him knocking at the door to your heart,

His Spirit is calling your name.

Today is the day to begin a new life,

and be free of your pain, past, and the grave.

*

Don’t walk around in His death on a tree,

set your sights on His Life, and claim Victory.

GOD’S PROMISE TO YOU:

“Are your ears awake? Listen. Listen to the Wind Words, the Spirit blowing through the churches. I’m about to call each conqueror to dinner. I’m spreading a banquet of Tree-of-Life fruit, a supper plucked from God’s orchard…Are your ears awake? Listen. Listen to the Wind Words, the Spirit blowing through the churches. Christ-conquerors are safe from Devil-death.” (Revelation 2:7,11 MSG)
 Jesus told this simple story, but they had no idea what he was talking about. So he tried again. “I’ll be explicit, then. I am the Gate for the sheep. All those others are up to no good—sheep stealers, every one of them. But the sheep didn’t listen to them. I am the Gate. Anyone who goes through me will be cared for—will freely go in and out, and find pasture. A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of. (John 10:6-10 MSG)

MY PRAYER FOR YOU:

Dear Lord,
Thank you for your death and Resurrection. You became our sacrifice.  You came to seek and to save what was lost – us.  Thank you for saving us, something we could not do for ourselves.  Today, let us be still and know that You are God, and all is well.  The victory is Yours Lord, and as you said, “It is finished ” Let us rest in that, in Jesus Name.
