Have you ever wondered why people resist good news? Have you ever thought about how often something inside of you says, I hope that that is true? History determines what we believe in current and prophetic reality. This is why faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not yet seen (Hebrews 11:1). Faith is the currency you need in order to receive what God is telling you He is about to do. Why do we struggle to believe? One reason is because of the law of first mention. The first thing you believed is the hardest thing to overcome and replace with an upgraded belief.
Many Christians have been told that if you are given too much freedom you will sin. Henceforth, why most Christians do not go through the cross gate and into wide open spaces that are holy places. There has been such a fear placed on us, and fear is the fruit of slavery. Proverbs says, the fear of man proves to be a snare (trap). John says, perfect love casts out all fear. And Paul says in 1 Corinthians 7:23 “You were bought with a price; do not become slaves of men.” Anxiety, fear, depression, loneliness, anger, addiction, immorality, all evidence of people living in small places out of fear of what they will do if they are truly set free.
Jesus did not shed his blood for you to live a small life, He shed his blood for you to live an abundant life in every way. But the voices of others say, you can’t prosper or you will forsake God; you can’t be promoted or you will become proud; you can’t do this or do that because it will change you. Who said? “You were bought with a price; do not become slaves of men.” Did men shed their blood for you? No, so they do not get to tell you how big you get to live your life. My friends, the doors of abundance are open and the one who bought you with a price is about to awaken you to things you thought you could not have and it is going to cause you to fall more in love with Him not less. You are no longer a slave to fear, you are a child of God!
