“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. (John 10:10)
The immobilizing effects of fear can be crippling; both physically and spiritually. Fear is a thief and seeks to shackle and destroy. Just the mention of the word ~Fear~ can produce trepidation. Satan smiles on Fear ~ and lovingly sniffs out its’ aroma.
It is impossible to overcome Fear without Love ~
Shame is the quencher of the light ~ God’s light in you. The light that shines through your soul. We are all born with a certain Shame. It is our unfortunate inheritance. But, without Love and Forgiveness ~ Shame increases in power ~ as Shame self-produces.
It is impossible to overcome Shame without Love and Forgiveness ~
The Bitter Root is a like a Kudzu vine. Once it is sown, it grows without nurture, and chokes out all other fruitful life.
It is impossible to overcome, control, and destroy the Bitter Root without Love and Forgiveness ~
In Christ, and now clothed in His Love and Forgiveness ~ we no longer know Fear, Shame or the Bitter Root. They are destroyed in his righteousness, and the sound of his name provokes their tremble. In Christ, and only then does God declare us Good enough for Him making all things possible. …
”With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Mathew 19:26)
How sweet His name is ~ how complete is His forgiveness ~ how precious is His love!
Jesus has taken us out of fear, shame, and bitterness. He is calling us to the possibility of abundance, do you hear Him?
