In 2 Corinthians 3:17, The Apostle Paul wrote, “Now the Lord is that spirit: and where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty!” When a person is saved by God, he or she receives and experiences God in Spirit. When we trust and allow God to be Lord (ruler) over our lives, we will realize:
  • How much God loves and cares for us. (John 3:16-18)
  • God will accept us no matter what we have done in the past. (Isaiah 1:18)
  • God has the power to forgive us all of unrighteouness, if we ask Him. (Isaiah 43:25; Ephesians 1:7; I John 1:9)
  • When we are saved, God’s Spirit abides within us. ( Romans 8:9; I John 3:24, 4:13)
Is the Spirit of the Lord abiding within you today? If He is, you are living in the abundance of joy and freedom. If not, you are living in bondage.

What has you bound? Is it a past relationship that went sour, or a marriage that ended in divorce? Maybe it’s alcohol, drugs, or sex. Whatever has you bound, you can be made free. As Jesus Christ stated in John 8:32, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” The truth is, “the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23); and tomorrow is not promised. If you are tired of living in bondage, you can pray this prayer right where you are.

Dear God,

Thank you for allowing me to live until this very moment. If I had died before now, I would have gone to hell. I now repent of my sins; I am sorry for them, and do not want to sin any more. I want nothing to do with the devil. I choose to be Your child; a citizen of Your kingdom.

Jesus I accept You as my Savior. I truly thank You for shedding Your blood for my sins, and rising from the dead so that I too, may have victory over the grave. I love and will serve You from this day forward. AMEN

According to Psalm 51, King David went to God to plea for mercy, forgiveness, and cleansing of his sins. He stated in verse 17, “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and contrite heart, O God, thou will not despise.” If you have sincerely prayed and went before God broken, God wants to mend you and make you whole.

A person without God is empty and incomplete. Jesus Christ emphatically stated in John 15:5, “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, bringeth forth much fruit: for without me (apart from me) ye can do nothing.”
