No Longer Slaves!
“I’m no longer a slave to fear, but I am a child of God.”
Why do these words mean so much to us when we sing them and we end up shouting them from the rooftops?
It is because we have known how much fear has held us back from so many things. When we realize this, we become FED UP with being held back, afraid, scared, feeling helpless because we have or want to experienced more!
Inside each of us is a child who knows who we are, a soldier ready to rise up, a phoenix rising from the ashes. This is who we are.
Inside of us we may see the things from the past and wonder if we could ever be more than our past. These ashes that you see is the fear that has held us back.
The ashes may seem to cover all the good but remember that God can bring beauty up from the ashes!
We usually see these ashes as our broken life, our mistakes, and our failures. They then become the walls of the prison we choose to put ourselves in. We cower behind these walls because we just can’t fathom trying and failing one more time.
But look at it from this way… Its time for a different perspective.
Those ashes are the old things, the wrong mindsets, the harmful belief systems that have been holding you back. But they, just like those ashes, are nothing. Burned to dust and are no more. They have no hold on you anymore, they have no say. The new you is coming out.
You were made for more. You were not meant to live as a slave. You were meant to live as a child. A child of God. One with authority and strength. One with a sound mind that has the backing of your powerful daddy and all of heaven behind you.
You get to burn those bridges to fear and start flying. This new life of freedom is more powerful and liberating than you may think. Each time a fire comes it will burn off anything else that isn’t supposed to be there. And those ashes have no part of you and will float away in the wind.
God has so much more for you than your current life. You are not a slave to fear. It’s time to live your life of freedom with God.
