Jesus came to set the captives free! Whether you are captive to sin, emotional or physical pain, anxiety, sickness, disease, taunts from your past!
Therefore, bring your past, no matter what happened to the Cross. Jesus took all your pain, and shame. He paid the price so you can be forgiven, healed, delivered, and set free from the stain and power of sin and be made whole! See your past as God sees it – IT IS FINISHED!
Rom 6:6 – tells us that our old self was crucified [past tense] with Christ! This means that we are now dead to sin, dead to sickness and disease, dead to pain, shame and condemnation and we are alive to God!
Gal 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
Most of us need to be delivered from our ‘selves!’ We need to lose a ‘self’ consciousness and gain a ‘God’ consciousness. Self-consciousness is a self-awareness, where our focus becomes all about ‘me’. We must get over our ‘self’ and begin to believe who we are in Christ and what we have received in Him. So from this moment on count yourself dead to sin, to guilt, shame, condemnation and from whatever happened in your past and start counting yourself alive to the power of God!
The rest will be history!
