No Longer

How incredible is it, that God puts a song on our hearts to sing to Him? I woke up this morning with a song, from Bethel music, on my heart – “No longer a slave.”

This is one of Kieren’s (my husband) favourite songs, and so, we still listen to it a lot! But this song reminds me of what God does to set us free from the fear in our lives, and how He has shown us to be faithful, over and over again, because of His love

One of the lines from this song is, “You split the sea so I could walk right through it.” This brings to mind the Red Sea being split for the Israelites in their Exodus. Yet, God splits the sea for each and every one of us when we give our lives to Christ, because He makes a way for us to conquer the grave, when in the natural, it seems impossible. There are still so many of God’s children, who are free in the physical sense, and yet, they walk with around with spiritual chains. This is tragic because it shows people believe the lies of the enemy, over our miracle-working God. Yet, that one line is sung over us to declare that if the Israelites experienced freedom from slavery, then God can free us from our bondages of fear, and unbelief, in our lives

Friends, for me, it’s the first two lines of that song that grips me every time…God unravels our hearts to His truths; and then surrounds us with His song of love, and that is when I have found that any fear will flee

Therefore, as you listen to “No longer a slave” today, allow this song to remind you of the freedom that Christ died for, but more importantly, let these truths to open your eyes to the fact, that God loves you unconditionally, and therefore, He will free you from anything that is enslaving you

“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.”

1 John 4:18

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
