POWER NO MORE! Romans 8:3-4

POWER NO MORE!

Romans 8:3-4
For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

Greetings!
BlogFam, when it is time to move on, you must do so empowered by the reality that what you are leaving behind is POWER-LESS to destroy, to disrupt, distract, and discontinue your journey toward your predestined victory in Jesus Christ our Lord! 

 
When it is time to move on, you can no longer give your past relationships, past employers, past responsibilities, past obligations, past situations or circumstances permission to dictate how you move forward into your next. 

 
When it is time to move on, you cannot allow that which has been cancelled, voided, foreclosed, bankrupt, annulled, vacated or pronounced dead to be revived, re-energized, resuscitated, recharged, or reinvigorated. 

 
When it is time for you to move on you must render that which has made you feel defeated, divided, defenseless, devastated, or deranged in your past, of non-effect. 

 
I know that this might sound cold, callous, and maybe even cruel, but UNLESS and UNTIL YOU make up in your mind that your future is the mandatory direction in which you must walk, run, skip, sprint, you will continue to relinquish your own power to people, places, and things that do NOT deserve and do NOT appreciate you, your gifts, your presence, your ideas, your dreams, your efforts, your beauty, or your grace.   

 
In the same way that the law was and is POWER-LESS to redeem us because it was weakened by the flesh, we must make that same declaration of POWER-LESSNESS and WEAKNESS over anything that would prevent us from moving on into our EIGHTH DAY.  AND we must, in turn, seek God’s righteousness through Jesus Christ and live by the Holy Spirit as we walk into our next.  We must trust and believe that the power AND the promises of God are greater than anything we have or will experience past, present, or future such that whatever our God has condemned, we will avoid and press forward.

 
In our scripture for today, we are informed and some of us are reminded about that internal and eternal struggle between our flesh and God’s Spirit.  The ancient laws of their tradition were of no effect once God sent Jesus to pay the penalty for all of our sins.  Jesus condemned sin in the flesh through His death and because of what Jesus did for all of us, we are now able to live righteously according to the Spirit that now lives inside of us in a way that the law did not have the power to do. 

 For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
 

Therefore, the transformation that is able to take place in our lives by the power of the Holy Spirit INSIDE of us because of the death of Jesus Christ,  is a radical change from the inside-out that the law, in and of itself, was unable to perform.  AND so as we prepare to move on into our eighth day, we must take on a similar perspective regarding that which we are leaving behind.  WHOMEVER and WHATEVER you are leaving behind, was obviously unable to enable you to perform at your highest and best capacity.  So, it is time for you to move on and embrace the transformation that is taking place in you and around you for the glory of our God.  For if the law was able to do what it needed to do in our hearts, God would not have sent Jesus.  BUT since the law was powerless and weak, God sent another who was full of power and strength and was well able to spur the radical change in our hearts that the Creator desired to see.

 
My sistas and brothas, when it is time to move on, you must do so empowered by the reality that what you are leaving behind is POWER-LESS to destroy, to disrupt, distract, and discontinue your journey toward your predestined victory in Jesus Christ our Lord!  You can do it, NOT because of your past, but because GOD sent JESUS to set all things in order concerning you – past, present, and future.  So, MOVE ON!  And surrender to the Almighty Power of the one in whom there is no weakness to transform your life from the inside-out and whoever and whatever you have left behind, will be made weakened in their ability to influence your divine destiny!

God Loves You and I do too!
