Be not entangled again, is a statement that is for the purpose of a warning and to equip us to purposely pick where you take your stand in being strategically positioned in Him. Let's look at this scripture for an understanding of this revelatory concept. Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free; And, be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. “Stand Fast in Liberty” Stand Fast: signifies we are to remain positioned. And we are to persevere so we can remain stationary; standing our ground spiritually. In Liberty: signifies freedom (legitimate or licentious, chiefly moral or ceremonial). “Hath Made Us Free” Hath Made Us Free: signifying He has already delivered and therefore liberated us; by making us be exempt from the moral, ceremonial or mortal liability of having our old yokes to be able to move us. “Not Again Be Entangled With"…
2 Corinthians 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness? Be Ye (defined) -signifies an extremely strong command follows which, in essence, says; "arise and be assembled to hear: then hearken, so you do not cause to be generated; come into being; or be the cause, of what will surely follow as it is ordained!" Not (defined) in English it simply signifies a negation of a prohibition to or a clear refuting denial. But in Greek however, it is given an even stronger emphasis classified as a military term expressing an absolute denial of any exception to the rule being found existing or stated. It also signifies an all inclusive command predicating the "Be Ye" with do not do the following lest God forbid; you…
As I walked the first time in the park behind my new home, a home God provided miraculously; the glory of His creative power encompassed me. With its high lush trees shaded the path, and green grass and hedging surround the edge that connected to my back yard. This little hideaway boasts its beauty with two wooden bridges covering a stream that waters this area as did the river Pishon in Havilah. I started walking for exercise, but it turned into so much more. In this place, I felt more like a part of His creative work there than any other place I had experienced. It was in this time and place that I was wooed by His glorious creative power that He spoke to me in a way I will never forget. As I was walking and in awe…
Did you ever believe that if you could just get closer, you will hear better? Many times that is what we believe, or at least hope is true.
I remember when I first saw the RCA “Victor Dog”, coined as “His Master’s Voice“, sitting by the amazing new technology. I thought, “If I could get that close to God, I would really be able to hear Him.” But is close really the answer? Sometimes when we get really close to what we want to hear, it does not really help, and it can even make it more difficult. (more…)
“I don’t want to be a superstar, I just want to be me.” This is a quote from a very inspiring Equestrian clip (1.47 min) by PocoZeph. You can watch it here. It is worth watching!
Now this artist did a great display of who he sees himself to be, but, to display who we are, is much easier than living it out in our life. Right?
Just like the quote above, rarely are we looking to be a superstar, we just want the ability to “just be, me.” As a person that spent decades of being what others expected, I can tell you that for most of those years, I did not realize I was not being me. (more…)
Have you ever met someone that from the moment you started to speak with them, you realized they just saw things differently than you. They saw things with a different lens than you did. I call these individuals “People with a World View”. It is my desire to inspire to you recognize those in your life that have the “world” in their eyes (and heart); because we can learn so much from them.
Before we look at that more, it is important to understand that you too have a different view. Here are some examples of some other views I have come across in my life: (more…)
In Daniel 1:2 The Word says that God gave into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar, King Jehoiakim, and Judah. The biblical account goes on to tell us that in that giving into, was Daniel, a man of excellent spirit.
Have you ever felt like you had been given into a situation by God? Well if you are His, you probably have been. Those times that you find yourself in a situation that you know in all honesty you did not pray for, ask for or ever imagine you would be in; but you know He placed you there.
As I prepared for this study; it made me reflect back to my younger years with my husband. (more…)
Sing to the Lord, O you saints of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
For His anger is but for a moment, but His favor is for a lifetime or in His favor is life. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
In this Psalm the Lord gives us opposites to consider as we go through life and adversity, remembering He is holy. (more…)
