Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 2 Corinthians 3:17
It’s always good to read the entire passage to get a better understanding of what Paul was saying here so let me give you a brief synopsis. When Moses was in the presence of God his face would shine so bright with the glory, that it made the people fearful to see it, so he covered his face with a veil. The symbolism here is that until we receive Jesus, our eyes are veiled, but once we receive Him as Lord, our eyes are open to the truth and it’s the truth that sets us free.
So this passage clearly reveals to us that where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty or freedom. If we don’t allow Him to be Lord of our lives because of fear, condemnation, guilt or shame, we are not allowing the Spirit of God to reveal to us our son-ship or who He has transformed us into-the image of His Son.
You see, knowledge is everything. It’s key to walking in the freedoms you’ve been given through the blood of Jesus Christ. So many of us walk around in a fog because Satan doesn’t want us to know the truth. If he can keep us blind, we’re not threat to him or his schemes and plans. That’s why he keeps you busy, distracted, discouraged, depressed, sick, in pain, etc…. He’s no fool! His deception is well planned and well placed.
It’s time to awaken to the glory of God and allow Him to reveal Himself to us again. Listen to the words of Hosea the prophet; “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.”
Fill me with the knowledge of You, oh God, that I may walk in the freedom and power of Your Holy Spirit and be the daughter You created me to be. May I carry Your glory as a regal queen. When I speak, may demons tremble! May signs follow the preaching of Your Word as I open myself up for You to flow through. It’s in Jesus’ name and for Your glory alone, Amen.
