"That We being delivered"
Our earth binds us in so many ways; binds us within and binds us without.
It binds us with circumstances and it binds us with society.
God's deliverance is a setting free from Despair, from Darkness and from Death...
It is a freedom given that we might Live in a New Realm.
It is a freedom from Fear, a freedom of Movement, of Action.
It is the freedom of the bird riding the current of air; a bird unfettered by anything at all, sweeping, rising and swooping without bonds or boundaries.
This is what it is all about.
As we go into this New Year in Christ, there is nothing to bind us and we are "free indeed".
A New Year
At the beginning there WAS; at the end there WILL BE, and our lives elapse between these two points.
Will the coming year be a New Year - or a Repetition … of years past?
A New Year with New Things?
New Things must come from a renewal within.
Israel experienced new life as they partook each day of new water and new manna, fresh from the hand of God.
Do we think we can get through 365 days without New Infusions of life from God?
Nothing keeps moving on earth without the addition of new energy - everything loses impulse until movement ceases.
Somewhere, somehow, in our generation this truth seems to have escaped us. We hope to advance from faith to faith and from victory to victory carried forward by the energies of the past.
Let us in this coming year, which will advance inexorably day by day until its end, fix our eyes upon the Author and Finisher, and let us “go up to possess” in an intensity of search renewed and sustained by God.
