SPRING FORTH NOW
The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.
One of the things that consume us is our desire for someone or something to Deliver us from our circumstances to something that is better, freeing us from the complications disagreeableness, and/or the mundane of our lives - our sense of brokenness. We are so consumed that often we find and/or attach ourselves to people, places, or things as an agent or vehicle of escape in order to numb ourselves and our experiences; becoming addicted to that which provides a momentary relief and/or escape. It is our addictions that serve as a substitute for facing our fears and thus, preventing us from repairing the brokenness that our fears have caused. I suggest that even in the midst of our brokenness, with our addictions, there is the feeling that there is something better that causes us to cry out, reach for, seek after opportunities for transformation, a Deliverance to Breathe: New Life. Everyone, no matter their brokenness or addiction wants for their lives to be transformed for the better, not just temporarily changed, but instead resurrected to live to their maximum potential, the promise of life and life more abundantly. The gift of Jesus, the sacrificial lamb for all - no matter whether you profess Him or not - has been given as a vehicle of reconciliation to the Word of promise for your abundant life. Pay attention to your circumstances, recognize what is broken, and take advantage of the opportunity of repair, seeking that which reconciles your experience to that which will empower you. Do not allow your brokenness to cause you to hide or run away, face the brokenness of your life, cry out for help, God will respond, healing your brokenness and reconciling you to your promise of abundant life! Go ahead and Breathe: New Life and receive Deliverance, the transformation of you and your experiences in which you overcome and inherit all things!
