Spiritual Thoughts For Today’s Living
(Join us every
month for a new devotional
thought taken from the KJV Bible.)
Truth Shall Set You Free
And the battle goes on for your
soul. Who will win? …You, if you’ve given your life
to Jesus. I heard a preacher teaching on who you and
I really are. We are made up of a body, soul and
What spirit dwells in you?
If the Holy Spirit, then you have the ability to
discern other spirits that are good or evil. But,
don’t be deceived because some spirits can be in
your mother, brother, friends, business associates
etc. Jesus said, “Who is my mother and brethren but
those that hear God’s Word and does it.” In other
words, if someone… anyone… does not line up with the
word of God, cast him or her away from your world.
That does not mean you never speak to them again,
but it does mean… you are to keep them from
controlling your life and making you think you need
to be someone else or somewhere else other than
serving God and being led by His spirit.
This is the time to know the
truth … and the truth shall set you free. This
does not mean that you know the truth and
automatically you are free, though in some cases,
all you need is to know the truth to go on standing.
But, if you have not been standing in the truth and
God gives you His revelation of the truth or truths
that you need to become free, then you must apply,
apply, and apply the truth to your situation(s). If
you do, you will find yourself walking in the light
and great strength. Joy and peace will once again,
flood your soul.
By the way… the soul is made up
of your Mind, Will and Emotions… So if you find
yourself confused, tossed to and fro and your
emotions are out of whack, you know that you are not
applying God’s truth to your situation and you are
not standing on His revelation.
Example: If you have been
praying and praying that a situation would turn
around and God shows you plainly in His Word, (the
bible), giving you a scripture to stand on and a
truth for your situation, then you have to do
something. You don’t just keep praying and praying
and saying, ”o.k. I read the truth but I am not
free.” Of course not, you have to apply the truth to
your situation in order to be free. Here is one we
received. Flee the Chaldeans. The Chaldeans
represented family ties and flee means to run. Don’t
look back and try to figure everything out… just get
out of their presence and go on with your life.
Don’t let them have authority over you. So we did
and the truth of God’s Word to us set us free.
Oh, I can’t do that, you may be
saying… but let me ask you a question. Do you want
to stay stuck where you are, being slowly destroyed?
In God’s Word it says, “My people perish because of
a lack of knowledge” “Seek ye first the kingdom of
God.” So stop the depression, the anger, the sadness
and indecisions. Make a decision to stand on the
Word of truth from your Heavenly Father and the
truth shall set you free.
Until next time,
