Summary: The way life as a Christian should be!!
Christian Declaration of
I am free from failure PHILIPPIANS 4:13
I can do all things through Christ which
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
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
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!!!!!
(4) I am free from doubt – ROMANS 12:3
For I say, through the grace given unto me, to
every man that is among you, not to think of
himself more highly than he ought to think;
but to think soberly, according as God hath
dealt to every man the measure of faith!!!
You see having faith is what takes away
But if you have experienced disobedience:
DEUTERONOMY CHAP 28:66 SAYS:
And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee;
And thou shalt fear day and night.
But this is only if you have been disobedient.
(5) I am free from weakness Psalms 27:1
the Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life; of
whom shall I be afraid??
Here the psalmist is expressing his confidence
Of his trust in God.
And the confidence and trust in his prayer for deliverance.
PSALMS 84:11 SAYS
For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord
Will give grace and glory:
He knows his God and he knows that God will
Deliver him on that great judgment day!!!
DANIEL 11:32 SAYS:
The people of that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. (or take action)
We are already strong in the Lord and we must
Always be ready to take action for God!!!
