There is no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. …. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit…. to the spiritually minded is life and peace.
This morning, I was thinking of a coaching session I had yesterday. The barrier with my client wasn’t that she didn’t believe God wanted to do it for her or couldn’t do it for her, but that the enemy put up a wall to prevent her from reaching her goal she was trying to receive. She reacted out of fear that God either didn’t want her to have her goal reached because she may have more responsibility after attaining the goal or too much freedom and act foolishly.
After digging deeper into the issue, I explained that our heavenly father WANTS her to have the freedom she is trying to attain. He is not keeping it from her. The issue was that the enemy had told her a lie. A lie that was embedded out of condemnation and a works mentality. We cast out the lie, her mind is renewed but the thinking will have to be re-directed for a time so her habits will change. She no longer needs to be fearful of changing for the better. God wants her better!
Condemnation gives you no hope. Conviction from the Holy Spirit gives you hope. She had no hope of reaching her goal because of the lie.
If you are struggling with something today, ask yourself the question “Am I hopeful or do I feel as though I cannot reach a state of peace about a subject.” If it is the latter, then cast out the lie and re-direct your thinking.
Continue to walk in peace of His perfect love because it will cast down the fear. Boost your faith by believing God not only wants you to have peace in every situation but He wants you blessed. I want you to be blessed and find hope to live abundantly!
In His Presence be blessed!
