This week we are looking at God’s great gift: FREEDOM. Being made in the image of God means that we get to become a free people. After all, it was for freedom that Christ set us free. We are asking the question: What new freedom must I explore now?
During this session, we'll be looking at:
+ How we are FREE to CHOOSE Him and what this means for our lives;
+ How TRUE liberation sets us FREE from fear, doubt, anxiety, hopelessness.
+ Why EVERY situation is an opportunity to DISCOVER new freedom;
+ Why we DON’T want to ask God the “why” question.
+ A powerful ACTIVATION to EXPERIENCE more FREEDOM in your life!
+ God is in charge of our lives, but He is not in control.
+ Truth doesn’t just give freedom from sin but from all negativity of heart and mind.
+ When we strive to control our old man habits, we become slaves to old ways.
+ Knowing God has dealt with all the negative emotions makes us free to look at the opposite of what God is actually doing.
+ God cherishes free will and wants us to have choices in line with the people we are becoming.
+ Freedom requires practice, not just to enter it, but to remain in.
+ John 8:32: You will know the Truth and the Truth will set you free.
+ Colossians 3:3: You died and your life is hidden with God in Christ.
God loves to use every situation as your training ground, and He loves the process of making you different and keeping you different. Grab your journal and think through these questions with the Holy Spirit:
+ Where do you feel captive in your circumstances?
+ What are the lack of choices you have available to you? Or the multiplicity of choices?
+ What is God’s truth that will set you free here?
+ What old mindsets does that truth lock up?
+ What new freedoms does it unlock for you?
+ Where do you want to go and what is stopping you from getting there?
Remember there is no breakthrough without follow through. Once you get a sense of your new freedom, ask the Lord:
+ How will I explore this new freedom with you?
+ What practice opportunities are there to pursue?
It’s going to be a process of discovery and practice. Everything in your life is about learning, so I hope you are loving the learning and you are loving getting free and staying free. You have the opportunity to get into a different level of life with God because of the freedom He is releasing to you right now.
Thanks for listening, I really appreciate it!
