ALL OUT – FREEDOM FOCUS
Freedom can mean so many different things to so many, but let me define it from Webster’s dictionary to begin. Freedom is:
- The quality or state of being free
- Liberation from slavery or the POWER of another
Hallelujah! That sounds just like what Paul talks about in Galatians.
Galatians 5:1 KJV
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
Those who have received Christ as Lord and Savior know what it felt like to be weighed down and in bondage, until the day we recognized that Jesus took our sin and He made us free. What a glorious day! What a wonderful moment! We are warned not to go back into bondage once we are free.
Our freedom isn’t just for us! The definition of freedom is also “unrestricted use.” The BIG picture is that we can proclaim freedom to invade darkness and build righteous pathways for others to walk on. We can use OUR voice to speak truth and they, too, can be set free from the torment of the enemy and live in ALL that God sent His Son to win for them.
The Scripture that Liberty is founded on is Isaiah 61.
Isaiah 61:1 KJV
The SPIRIT of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
We have been given the mandate this year to be SPIRIT EMPOWERED ALL OUT, and it is tied directly to what the Lord has mandated us to do from the beginning. I believe that we will proclaim liberty to the captives, and their prison doors will swing wide open!
This year is the year to see the fruit of our labor realized. We don’t just casually read the Fasting Guide, but we also partake of the truths God is saying so that we can accomplish His mandates BY THE SPIRIT.
I get so excited because we don’t have a list of what we have to do. Instead, we have a list of promises that will engage us in living our lives with His super on our natural! It will benefit others, but it will also benefit us! There is so much joy in store for those who will grow in their own freedom, as they are carriers of it.
The world has nothing to offer but bondage. We have everything to offer that the Lord has bought for every person through His great sacrifice. We must build ourselves up in our most holy faith. How do we build ourselves up in faith?
Jude 20 KJV
But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.
He is our Comforter, our Guide, our Friend, the precious Third Person of the Trinity, Holy SPIRIT.
I think a lot of people will be talking about 2020 as a year of vision because of “20-20 vision.” While that is true, I believe God has already been focusing on vision with us. I now believe it is of utmost importance to open our mouths in agreement with what the SPIRIT is saying and doing, and join Him in action.
Without us recognizing and agreeing with the SPIRIT, we cannot join Him in going ALL OUT to release the voice of freedom, to destroy bondage, and set the captives free!
The words of our mouths are actually creating with God, if we are truly hearing from Him as we release our voices. The bigger vision of God is for ALL of His people to be HIS mouthpiece, releasing His plans and His priorities into the atmosphere to bring change with SPIRIT EMPOWERMENT.
We must always pay attention to those who are around us, listening to Holy SPIRIT for His strategies. He releases us:
- To speak freedom into a situation or freedom to someone.
- To pray effectively and pre-emptively with revelation for different scenarios.
- To operate in the gifts He has given us with discernment and freedom.
- To co-labor with Him in miracles, which will become normal activity for us.
- To activate the Kingdom of God that is within us!
Only those who have experienced freedom can bring freedom. Once you have tasted and seen that the Lord is good, you know the freedom only He can provide!
Lord, we thank You for setting us free from the bondage we were living in before we came to know You. We are so grateful today to know You in a deep way. We are asking not just for ourselves; we are asking for freedom to flow through us and draw others OUT of the bondage they are living in. Open their eyes to truth. Grant your servants boldness to speak the Gospel truth and confirm it with SPIRIT EMPOWERMENT, Lord.
Give us a heart for the lost and dying that we come across every day. Let the atmosphere of Heaven come and charge the atmosphere, to open the doors of their hearts and to respond to the freedom You offer every individual.
We are looking for them. We are interceding for them right now. We are willing to be Your spokesperson to them. We believe You for the fruit of souls, because that is living the good life You promised. There is no greater joy than seeing Your children responding to You and being set free.
Thank You for this year being a year that will bring open doors, and we will walk through them as we go ALL OUT with You. Hallelujah!
In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
