DO NOT IMPRISON YOURSELF

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. (John 8:36 )
We are no longer dictated by the lusts of the flesh. Sin holds no more dominion over us as God's chosen ones, as the bible records, " Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the freedom of God's grace." We are free from the cravings and indulgence of the flesh. On our opening verse, the bible teaches us that the slave was never a permanent member of the family but a Son always is. If the bible says that we are no longer servants but sons in the Kingdom simply means that since Jesus has always been the member of the family, He holds the power to bestow sonship to those who were enslaved by sin.
The word is clear, you cannot set yourself free, it ought to be the Son that sets you free so that you will be indeed free. As a child of God your daily battle is no longer sin as you are free from its dominion but your daily battle is the indeed part of your freedom. Are you just free or free indeed? The indeed part on our opening verse refers to freedom from all forms of oppression such as oppression from finances, health, and spiritual well being. But you are indeed free! It might be that you are not aware because the enemy has held you captive from those chains of poverty, lack and sickness for so many years that you can't even feel that you are free as I declare you free right now in the name of Jesus Christ. All you need is to fine tune your mind; change the channel in your mind. Begin to see yourself as a multi-millionaire a powerfull man or woman of God. Your mind is the door way to your heart, if you can catch it on your mind, you can also catch it on your bank account. Despise and totally ignore your present torments; they are just the after effects of your sores; they have nothing to do with your future.
If you believe it start speaking it (2 Corinthians 4:13), this is the only remedy to heal those chain sores of oppression in your neck. Do not succumb to satan; do not obey your desires of the flesh for if you do, it's like pouring salt on an open wound, it would never heal, instead it is fatal torment to yourself. Yield unto Jesus, for He is the author and the finisher of our faith (Heb 12:2); He holds our past, present and future in His hands. Do not imprison yourself by negative speech, again I say change the channel you are currently watching in your mind, tune into God's channel, the Word; and all your sores will heal immediately. If a clever dog that has been bound for years can feel that it is now free and begins to run at full speed to cover up for the past torment; how much more with you having the Holy Spirit residing in you? Run at fool speed from now onwards, dream at full speed even in day light to cover up for the past torment; believe it so that you can speak it; speak it so that you can receive it.
O Lord, I thank you for making me free, I am free indeed. I am no longer a slave to sin but a son in the house. I am free indeed, financially, spiritually, and physically. I declare and I decree that I have more than enough to give charitable donations. I live in abundance and that is my permanent residence. I will not die premature but I will live long and enjoy the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. I declare and I decree that poverty is not my portion, suffering and struggling is not my portion but a healthy life, financial stability and prosperity are my portion in Jesus name.
