Christian Declaration of

Independence

I am free from failure PHILIPPIANS 4:13

I can do all things through Christ which

strengtheneth me.

Here the Apostle Paul’s ability of knowing how to live skillfully on just a little or a whole lot don’t just mean that he is some kind of a spiritual superman.

It’s saying his ability of being able to live in extremes

Is not because of him but rather that he can do

All things Through Christ who strengtheneth him

Therefore making him able to adapt to many

Various and continuously changing circumstances.

You see God orders Paul into these various situations

And then gives him strength to be content in

All of them!!! No matter how trying and complex

That they could be!!!!

JOHN 15:5 SAYS:

I am the vine ye are the branches; He that

Abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing!!

Here as long as we are bearing the fruit that

God expects us to bear, we are in the center

Of His perfect will!!!!

The book of Hosea says:

I am like a green fir tree from me is thy fruit found!!!!

God is continuously trimming us and pruning

Us so we can bear that precious fruit!!!

GALATIANS 5: says:

But the fruit of the Spirit is Love, Joy Peace,

Long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Meekness, temperance: against such there

Is no law!!!!

You are free from Failure!!!!

(2) I am free from want Philippians 4:19

But my God shall supply all your need according

to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Because the Lord is aware of the sacrifice

It’s talking about in vs.18 that the Philippians

Made in meeting Apostle Paul’s needs, then God will surely supply all their need.

God will meet their need according to his riches,

But will be in proportion to His unlimited

Resources; in glory.

Or in other words He will meet their need gloriously or in a very splendid manner and by Jesus Christ.

PSALMS 23:1 SAYS

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want!!

The Lord will feed and gather his flock just

Like the shepherd would gather his sheep!!!

God makes you free from want!!!

(3) I am free from fear 2nd Timothy 1:7

for God hath not given us the spirit of fear;

but of power, and of love, and of a

sound mind.

God doesn’t expect you to have a fearing spirit.

God expects you to have Power

And He expects you to have Love.

A sound mind here is speaking of a

disciplined mind.

JOHN 14:27 SAYS:

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

You see these things all through the Bible.

Love, Peace, happiness.

1ST JOHN SAYS

there is no fear in love; but perfect love

casteth out fear!

Fear is based on the dread of punishment and

God’s love for us makes this dread obsolete!!

Fear is going to exist with the Christian walk,

Its our unwillingness to violate God’s trust in us!!

But don’t get me wrong I’m not saying that

We should let our relationship or our approach

with God be Casual,

We are to have our relationship with God

Within the realms of uttermost respect!!!

And you are free from Fear!!!!!
