FREE – but still living in prison!

Romans 8:1-2, NIV
“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.”

Familiar surroundings make us feel safe and comfortable. We like the security of the world that we know and believe we can trust – even though there may be much more exciting places to live, work and play in. It’s amazing how often people are just content to enjoy living in the same old familiar surroundings that they’ve known all their life – even when they have all the resources at their fingertips to make radical and positive changes to their lives.

Equally, I find it surprising sometimes, when trying to help people face the real issues in their lives, to find that often they have known the Lord for many years but have not allowed the supposedly abundant life they now have to change their way of living! They are still in bondage to the same old temptations and the same old behaviours. What they were familiar with in their unredeemed life has continued to be the furniture with which they are still comfortable.

Yes, they are looking forward to the joys of Heaven, but they have rarely experienced the blessings from Heaven on earth – in spite of the new law of the Spirit that God has written in the heart of every believer. This new law gives us authority over the law of sin and death which tries to drag us back into the attitudes and activities of Satan’s Kingdom. Satan does his best to blind us to the fact that we can use our free will to walk free of his chains, using the higher authority that we now have in our lives – if only we would use our free will to let the Spirit of God transform us from the inside out many of the problems which beset believers on a day to day basis would simply fall away.

Those who are in Christ Jesus are freed from the curse of sin – they don’t need to remain sitting in the jail of Satan’s making oblivious to the fact that the chains that formerly held them there are broken. Jesus – the Lion of Judah – has broken the chains. Now is the time for His people to start living in the reality of their new found freedom.

Prayer: Thank You Jesus, that you have broken the chains of bondage for all those who have trusted in You. Help me, Lord, to live in the reality of that freedom, now and for the rest of my life. In Jesus’s Name. Amen.

Do you want to work for God or with God?

Exodus 33:15, NIV
“If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.”

As I was praying about the New Year ahead I sensed God ask me a question, “Do you want to work for Me or with Me?” This is a big, important question. It’s so easy to lose sight of the fact that I’m involved in God’s work, not mine, and my life should be hidden in Christ with God. Moses got this completely right. He didn’t just want to do the work of God. He wanted the presence of God to be in the midst of them.

The presence of God distinguishes us from others. If God doesn’t go with us we’re without hope, without honour, and without protection. And we go without His salvation and His love. Like Moses I found myself saying to God, “If You don’t go with me, I simply don’t want to go”.

I want God’s manifest presence to take me forward from here, because out of God’s presence come miracles, signs and wonders, healing and deliverance. Moses talked to God face-to-face. The word ‘face’ is connected with the word ‘presence’. ‘Face-to- face’ is an idiom meaning close relationship in the intimate presence of God, (because no one has seen God’s face and lived).

Do you want to seek God’s face, become like Moses and insist on His presence? Are you working for God or with God, in His manifest presence? We need to greatly value the presence of God. Nothing is greater.

Jesus made it clear that living in the Kingdom means living in a real relationship with the King. God the Father glorified Jesus and highly exalted Him because He made Himself nothing and took on the form of a servant and became obedient to the Father, even though it cost Him His life. He had no other ambitions but to glorify His father, and He emptied Himself. The Scripture says, ‘Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus’ (Philippians 2:5). Jesus did everything the Father wanted Him to do.

That’s a challenge in front of us in 2012. Don’t let’s get side-tracked into working for God when we’re called to work with God. Don’t let’s just talk about it or sing about it. Let’s be part of the Kingdom, bearing fruit and bringing God glory; a people through whom God manifests His presence, glory and wisdom.

Prayer: Dear Lord, Don’t send me anywhere to do anything unless You go with me. Put Your words in my mouth. I need Your presence and Your power. Free me from anything else, and ruin me for anything less than You working with me, to glorify Your name. Amen.

When God Fired His Gun!

Back in 1985, before the work of Ellel Ministries had begun, I was sitting on the back row of Sheffield City Hall. John Wimber was speaking about healing. I was so encouraged to hear his teaching, which spoke so powerfully … Continue reading Continue reading
