FREEDOM FROM SIN, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 10/29/20 From Ken Smith
Today’s Scripture (Across my desk this morning from a church in Texas.)
Give us gladness in proportion to our former misery! Replace the evil years with good. Let us see your miracles again; let our children see glorious things. (Psalm 90:15–16, TLB)
Psalm 90 is a prayer of Moses. Perhaps you can identify with his request in today’s Scripture. He was saying, “God, I’m having a tough time. I’ve had some bad breaks, but I’m asking for Your restored blessing.” When you face difficulties, do as Moses did and pray, “God, strengthen me again, heal me again, and show me Your favor again.”
Your situation may not look good. You may be facing something at your business, in a relationship, or have a health issue that you don’t think could ever work out. But God didn’t bring you this far to leave you. He can turn things around, bring a breakthrough, restore your health and happiness, and cause your business to take off. Rise up in faith and say, “God, I’m not going to give up. I’m believing to see glorious things, miracles again, the dream come to pass, the problem resolved. I know that You always finish what You start.”
A Prayer For Today
“Father, thank You for being the God of miracles who does glorious things. Thank You for the assurance that the work You’ve started to do in my life will be brought to completion. I declare that I will not give up my trust in what You can do. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
There is the requirement of REPENTANCE that is missing from the above. If we really want God to Bless and Support us in our life it will come through faith in HIS promises that is strong enough to make us want to change (repent) and to become like HIM. And it is different for different grade levels. What you could get away with in the 1st Grade will not fly in the 5th Grade and so on. As we change to become in the image and likeness of Christ Jesus there is also a maturing process so that the giants that we have to slaughter may even get even bigger. We find that our Creator has restrained the more difficult changes that we need to experience until we have the faith and wisdom to have the victory over them. We tend to think of ourselves as a one room log cabin but in reality every cell of our body is a complete living entity and can be host a negative squatter. Biologically we have a clean up crew carrying out the trash 24/7 and when healthy, we are healthy. Spiritually it is about the same. The demonized man had thousands of demons invading his body/house. And Jesus took authority over them and expelled them. Even after you become a Christian you can some times need a deliverance. There are three levels of demonic attack. Oppression (from the outside) Obsession (from the mind) Possession (from the heart)
With Oppression, it is a feeling of depression, lust, greed, anger, perhaps a headache or ringing in the ears, a negative feeling of one kind or another. Like a thief trying to find an unlocked door. And it is easy to get ride of it by simple, and in faith, strongly command it to leave in Jesus Name!!!! But you can not fix what you don’t know is broken and have the tools to fix it with. With out faith it is impossible to get the victory. Faith come by knowing the Word of God as Jesus did.
With Obsession it is like when someone flips a switch and out comes the very strong even violent rage or attitude about something of one kind and another. My stepfather hated Ma Bell Telephone Co. So to avoid his 30 min recorded rampage, we would use the pay phone at the corner so we would not get sliced and diced about Ma Bell. Totally a waste of time for all concerned. It can be an emotional negative obsession about anything including people. But the people who need to be set free do not even realize what is happening for that time period and when over go back to being normal. It is like a trip wire that goes into insanity and then it is over. So you find the trip wire, remove it in Jesus name and securely lock that door with forgiveness or restitution or what ever needed and it will be gone.
With Possession the demons can take over for sometimes long periods of time. With the ones Jesus dealt with the man was lucid for when Jesus came by and ran to HIM for freedom. (Perhaps the demons went into hiding.) But then the demons were exposed and took over and accused Jesus of Sin which went nowhere. And Jesus simply commanded them to leave which they had to do. In my experience when there is the power of unity and truth is solid faith with a group of believers then the darkness can not abide the light and exposes itself and the Church can gather around and facilitate a deliverance just as Jesus did. Been through this a number of times and the person delivered is always so very happy to be free and to be able to be filled with the Holy Spirit. So if you feel demonized then find a church full of faith and power and sit on the front row. It will be difficult to do, but on the other side is true freedom. Your Heavenly Father loves you and want’s you to be totally free.
