FREEDOM FROM INSECURITY
Recently, we watched a touching movie where a poor man from the wrong part of town was suddenly backed by a billionaire. It was astonishing to see the tremendous freedom and restoration it brought to his life and family. It got me thinking,
How would you act if a billionaire was backing you?
Talk about confidence! I would stop worrying, analyzing and trying to figure out HOW my prayers were going to be answered. Not only would I start Dreaming BIG but I also would be stepping out and pursuing those dreams. Please let me remind you that we have the Creator of the Universe backing us and He owns it all! I Corinthians 10:26 says, “For the [whole] earth is the Lord's and everything that is in it.” When we know who we are IN CHRIST and what we have been given IN HIM, we will be free from any insecurity! Because of the precious blood of Jesus, the promises of God are given freely by His grace but we receive them through faith. (Ephesians 2:8) Our part is to simply believe.
WE HAVE AN INHERITANCE! Growing up, I used to imagine how it would be to suddenly inherit millions of dollars and live like Richie Rich in the comic books. But we don’t have to daydream about it, the truth is that when we gave our lives to Jesus, we inherited what Jesus did! We are joint heirs with Jesus. Romans 8:16-17 says, “The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ…” II Peter 1:3 says that “His divine power has given to us ALL things that pertain to life and godliness…” We have a rich inheritance.
WE ARE CHOSEN! Ephesians 1:3-6 says, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with EVERY spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He CHOSE us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.” No matter our past or ancestry, when we chose Jesus as our Lord and Savior, God adopted us into His family. We have available to us EVERY spiritual blessing. No more insecurity or low self-esteem: we are chosen, adopted and accepted.
WE ARE LOVED! John 3:16 “For God SO LOVED the world that He GAVE His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Because of God’s great love toward us, He gave us Jesus. His Love is what causes us to overcome in this life. Romans 8:37 says, “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who LOVED us.” Verse 38-39 further explains that NOTHING “shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Guaranteed victory on this earth through the Love of God, now that’s security!
Please let us know how we can pray for you at www.mylon.org. We are ready to join our faith with yours! As you sow your precious seed this month, rejoice knowing that you have a rich inheritance, you are chosen and you are loved! Just as Paul said to those in Philippians 4:19 who sent an offering to his aid, we pray this same promise over you: “And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus!”
We love you and call you blessed,
Mylon & Christi
P.S. You are a blessing! Your seed each month, is helping us to spread this message of freedom through “On The Road To Freedom” TV ministry. We just received a report of God’s favor with another ministry in Sweden and they have now enabled our broadcast to be aired with Swedish subtitles. Thank you Jesus and thank you for helping us to reach the nations with the Love of God!
