Let us not forget- JESUS Died So We Could LIVE


Like many, I was delivered from a life-long list of traumas, and the schoolmaster of sin trained me well in the art of self-defense. Surviving abuse and having to always fend for ones-self, many women are so accustomed to being fighters, warriors, survivors.
 
But today YAH reminds me, that when the scales fell off my eyes and the LORD gaven me sight... HE had showed me, that HE was with me all along. I had been fighting but HE was spotting... watching over me, for it was most often myself with whom I was at war. And I have no need to fight anymore, because of HIM the battle was won, and in HIM I have found my rest. HE is my tower, my refuge, my strength.... and NOTHING should EVER lead me to feel that I need to return to a state of fighting for my survival. 
HE suffered so for our sins, not so we could merely survive, but so we could LIVE.
So we could enter HIS rest, for HIS yoke is easy and HIS burden is LIGHT... and HE IS who HE IS... powerful, weightlessly perfect EXISTENCE... and all we need to focus on is trusting HIM, HAVING FAITH- so we too can EXIST, through CHRIST JESUS, within that beautiful holiness of the GREAT "I AM" .
GALATIANS 5

1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. 3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. 4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. 5 For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. 6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

7 Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth? 8 This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you. 9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. 10 I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be. 11 And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? then is the offence of the cross ceased. 12 I would they were even cut off which trouble you.

13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. 14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
