A few days ago, I went to my primary care physician to have blood work done. It is very important that you pay attention to your body and routinely have blood work completed to reveal the different levels of your internal self. You need to have your cholesterol check, thyroid levels, liver functioning levels, etc. These levels will reveal what is occurring on the inside of you (you’ll catch that importance in a minute).
As I was evaluating the importance and significance of the blood, The Lord began to download his wisdom into me. He said, just as you went to the doctor to have them to check your blood, you need to come to me with what’s on the inside of you and allow me to check your blood. If you are operating in the spirit and have confessed your sins and believe Jesus died for you, THEN you are covered under HIS blood. This caught me totally by surprise. I would have never in a million years made a blood correlation such as this. So I’m at attention, listening and allowing the spirit to flow at this point. Then, all of a sudden, a light bulb went off. The BLOOD the BLOOD the BLOOD!!!!! The Blood of Jesus. Did you know that through the blood that was shed on Calvary means you’re forgiven of your sins? Why am I mentioning this? Most people are stuck internally because of a sin that was projected externally. The enemy is holding so many believers bound to the things they’ve done wrong. But guess what? Today you can be free.
*cues song* No more shackles, no more chains, no more bondage… I am FREEEEEEEE!!!!!!
No matter what season you are in, it is important to do a blood check on it. What is a blood check? It is aligning your heart, mind, and soul with what is pleasing and acceptable, knowing that GOD is in control. Remember, repentance ensures that you are in right standing with him. Also, under this, whether you are in financial bondage, emotional bondage, oppression, or depression, the price for YOUR salvation has already been paid and you don’t have to give in to the schemes of the enemy.
Once you realize you’re free, there is an adjustment period. Just as a person who’s been held into captivity struggles with coping and doing the right things, so will you. This is where you will constantly have to pray for a clean heart and renewed spirit. Why? Because the enemy will always be looking to devour you, pulling you back to the very thing you’ve been freed from. The word of God tells us that we must put on our “new” nature and that old things have passed away. So walk in the newness of The Lord, continuously educating yourself on the right behaviors and having the correct posture with Christ. Read more on my previous blog post Transformed here.
