Scripture: 2 Corinthians 3:17-18
“Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom) And all of us, as with unveiled face, because we continued to behold in the Word of God as in a mirror of the Glory of the Lord are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is Spirit.”
There is no longer a veil that separates God from man, because when Jesus said “it is finished” on the cross He was stating that the old covenant was finished and the new one had just begun an the veil was torn from top to bottom in the holly of hollies. There is literally no separation between God and man… He has provided freedom in every aspect of our lives and has given us the Holy Spirit as a guarantee of our salvation… and because the Holy Spirit is in us and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom…. we have a choice to walk in freedom… it has already been given but it is a choice to receive and no longer walk in the bondage of the enemy.
“yet we have the same Spirit of faith as he who had wrote, I have believed and therefore I have spoken, we too believe and therefore we speak.” 2 Corinthians 4:13
How do we begin to walk in the freedom God has provided for us? By continuing to behold the Word of God as in a mirror – when we read the Word of God we are reading who Christ is, who Christ is in us and who we are in Him because of the finished work of the cross. We are being washed by the water of the Word, which renews our mind. It is not about trying to renew our Spirit, because our Spirit is already redeemed, but it is about getting our soul (mind, will and emotions) in line with our Spirit and who we are in Christ. Confidence in knowing who are are in Him comes by reading the word of God, speaking the word of God and believing the word of God which causes us to grow from faith to faith and from glory to glory.
Father, your Word says that where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. I thank you that you have already made a way for me to walk in complete freedom because of what Jesus did and the finished work of the cross and what was purchased for a redemptive promise. Lord there is no longer a veil between you and your people so I thank you that I know you, I know your voice, I know your heart beat, your love has been shed abroad in my heart and I am able to grow from faith to faith and from glory to glory because as I continue in your Word my mind, will and emotions are being transformed to who I am in you and the freedom that I am able to walk in!
I declare that today is a new day that I get to walk in the freedom that you have for me. I chose to allow myself to receive from you! I thank you for divine appointments, connections and supernatural favor upon my life!
Love you Lord! Amen, so be it!!
