Intro - Lord I Want To Change

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

There is no doubt a significant amount of pressure is being placed upon our lives in the twenty first century. There are social ills, media hype, legal tussles, financial woes and any number of organizational battles causing us contention; all of which make us want to retreat from a demanding and oppressive world. There are also personal hurdles that come about through family exchanges, job or academic obligations, as well as the weight of worldly commitments. Pressure is not only measured by what comes at us from the outside; but it also consists of internal struggles affecting the mind and heart. This can also include how we deal with the effects of traumatic events or the effects of dark circumstances.

To resolve this pressure cooker lifestyle what we need is a Savior that knows how to be human, but also knows how to be bigger than our problems. Of course, with our initial acceptance of Jesus as Savior we did gain a wonderful reprieve from life as usual. He became for us a source of peace as well as the purveyor of true freedom and rest. By His hand of mercy, He freed us of every ill-conceived compulsion still rooted in the ways of the world. In so doing we entered into a relationship with the King, who to this day, offers us continued care, compassion and supernatural support. The result has been an opportunity to know new life and be able to function as a “new creation”.

Now if this fellowship in Christ is ever broken it is often the result of having walked away from that sweet spot with God. When we choose to give ourselves over to the ways of the world we are making choices that remain binding. This broken condition involves our participation in fallen agendas and subservience to any number of other masters. Such choices end up interrupting new life with Christ and we can suffer needlessly.

Maybe you can relate to being a casualty of fallen circumstances. Certainly you love God with all your heart, but for some reason you just can’t get past certain points of dysfunctional living. At times like these it may feel as if your whole person has been drained of any strength and the more you try to conquer your problems the more you fail at them. This scenario conjures up a recollection of an old TV commercial I once saw. In that commercial a dieting woman is seen flying through the air and being helplessly pulled into her refrigerator. Does this image illustrate how hopeless you might feel? Do keep in mind that you are not alone in your predicament. Though humanity’s problems are vast and varied, the good news is there remains a revived path to freedom found in Christ. Jesus in His brilliance has provided us away to break free of every worldly stronghold. Based on His way to freedom we can resolve any physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual predicament that currently interrupts healthy living. Answers come and breakthroughs are realized when we set our sights on Him as Savior and Deliverer.

Let’s look at some of the issues we will be covering:

There are common origins to bondage that affect us all.

  • There our basic principles in the gospel message that let us gain freedom.
  • By understanding personal authority in Christ it helps us avoid matters that lead to bondage.
  • There is a spiritual foe in the world that tries to hinder our victory in Christ.
  • There are times that the family inspires us, but also interrupts healthy development.
  • Spiritual bondage can come through family ties, and territorial influences.
  • We can have a divided mind and heart which often holds us captive to a conflicted lifestyle.
  • We can use and misuse the power of our human spirit.
  • We can miss out on a true and abiding peace in God.

These many issues can be compounding. Since we think linearly (in a line moving through time) we often allow one experience after another to have a say in our development. With each experience added to the mix we begin to form an opinion about life that is not always true. Hence to partake of a series of wrong experiences or wrong choices means we will accept a lie regarding life, love and commitment. Then again when we finally realize how often we have made erroneous decisions in life we come to realize how desperate we are for a valid means of escaping the past. No, we can’t change the past, but we can certainly change how we relate to it.

As we will discover in the pages ahead Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection was, and still is, an essential key to bringing about proper change to our lives. In fact it remains the way in which we can return to that sweet spot with God. For this reason a remarkable way of transformation is waiting for us in the pages ahead.

Keep in mind that no two people are the same in how they have become burdened; so not everything we say will directly apply to your particular circumstances. However what we can provide are talking points that reveal humanities most common roadblocks to freedom. For this reason we will want to look at the history of mankind, his fallen motives, and many of his most common agreements with the flesh, the world and the Devil. Not surprisingly much of this pattern of defeat can be traced back to the beginning of time.

In fact; Everything we want to know about bondage can be traced back to that historical mishap in the Garden.

Such a defining moment of failure has fueled humanities misery ever since. Yet in contrast;

Everything we need to know about freedom can be traced back to the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.

A remarkable journey of personal discovery is just moments away!
