My Breakthrough

Monday night I walked a step deeper into my freedom. I shared a piece of my testimony I once swore I swore I would take to my grave. What I have grown to learn is there is liberty in my mouth. The Bible says that we overcome by the blood of the lamb and by the word of our testimony (Revelation 12:11). So does that mean that once I speak and share my testimony I can overcome? Absolutely. Death and life are in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21). So when I spoke I brought life back to my soul.

On the way home tears rolled down my cheeks for several reasons. I was overjoyed yet angry. In fact, I was beyond angry. For a split second I reverted to all the questions I had once asked God, "how could you allow this to happen to me? Why? Why for so long? How come you didn't intervene sooner? Where were you?"
I stopped at a red light and instantly had an aha moment. God is sovereign, which means He can do whatever He pleases. Not only that, but even when I felt all alone, He was always there. God allowed what happened to me to benefit his kingdom. Had it not happened I would not be able to help others overcome.

In just a fifteen minute drive home I though about so much, in the silence. What I pondered on the rest of the night was the concept of freedom. Most times freedom is there we just dont speak it enough. Its more than just saying, Im free. Its about reflecting back and realizing what God has brought you through and freed you from. A lot of times we sit quiet and weve already been set free and dont even know it. We are so used to bondage that we sometimes cant even recognize when weve been freed. It reminds me of the slaves in the south. Once the Emancipation Proclamation was signed they did not want to leave their masters because they were so used to being slaves and afraid of the uncharted territory.

A few years back an Elder prophesied that I would change the lives of thousands with my words. He prayed specifically over my mouth and for those that would be changed from the words that will flow from it. Um. WOW! At the time I thought he was talking about my future as an attorney but now I know that THIS is what he was talking about.

I have chosen to continue in freedom the Holy Spirit has led me to. From the moment I began to share, Ive begun to experience a breakthrough like no other. I refuse to remain silent. The more silent I am the more bondage I choose to remain in. I am no longer a slave to the bondage I have been freed from by the most High.
