There are some fights that repeat themselves over and over again-the battle to remain silent when you want to speak, the struggle not to overindulge on that favorite food, the fight to remain steadfast in prayer. And the list goes on.
However, there are some encounters that you won’t have to fight again. Remember when you conquered that fear of speaking in public? Or perhaps that first flight? Maybe you’ve conquered that fear of roller coasters. Whatever it may be, that first fight was the only fight.
There is freedom in realizing that there are some battles you will not have to engage in again. For those whom are married, your season of first dates are over. For those who are mothers and are done have children, those labor pains are done for you!
Let’s go deeper, there are some enemies, there are some things that go bump in the night that you worry about, that you fear-and the Lord has set you free from experiencing those things again. Never again will you have to encounter that one who hurt you. Never again will you want to hurt yourself because you’ve been healed and made whole. Never again will you have to be a slave to a bottle or pills.
The Word tells us so:
Freedom is found in not fearing. Freedom is found in standing firm. Freedom is found in seeing the salvation of the Lord. Your Egyptians are done for! Egypt represented a place of bondage and slavery for the children of Israel. What represents your Egypt? Make it personal and speak that declaration over your life!
For the addiction you see today, you shall never see again if you stand firm, fear not, and see the salvation of the Lord!
For the low self-esteem you see today, you shall never see again if you stand firm, fear not, and see the salvation of the Lord!
The struggle you have with being all that God has called you to be may be visible today, but if you fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the Lord-you shall never have that struggle again!
It’s time to be free, my friend! Leave those “Egyptians” behind and press onward towards the mark which is in Christ Jesus!
Peace and Blessings
