To Be Set Free
I want you to know who you are. I want you to come to Me, head up, not down, looking sure into my eyes. I want you to stand, not cower. I want you to believe—and when I say believe, I mean, live out—the truth, the truth of you I see.
The truth of you cannot be articulated in just words. The truth of you is a name and not a name. The truth of you is more than a description of personality, a page of characteristics, a list of mannerisms and popular expressions.
There’s something you must remember: you must live your truth. You must live, with determination and might, your truth. You must know who you are designed to be . . . if you want freedom, if you want liberation from lies, if you want joy.
You, my daughter, are mortal, yes. You are human and frail, and can feel unimportant and small. You can feel vulnerable and unsure. You desire confidence. You wonder if you have what it takes to live out the identity I have created, specifically for you. You can agree with the enemy that you are not good enough.
But here’s what I want to tell you:
You, my daughter, are made to be strong, with Me. You, my daughter, are made to do things I’ve prepared, just for you. You, my daughter, are made to go forward, not back. And to go forward, you must fight and break the agreements you’ve made with the enemy. You must know I have come to claim you, the daughter I made. You must know your life has been paid for. You must know you are free.
And sometimes, with my truth in your heart, you must reject lies about who I am. You must do this. Don’t wait. Do it right now. This it what it means to fight—for freedom from lies. It is rejecting lies and surrendering to Me. It is fighting for your identity, the one the prince of this world wants to take from you.
So, when you are weary, when the world presses in, remember I am here with you. Know I am the warrior who never sleeps. Know I rescue and ask you to trust Me more than anything else. That is how you fight. That is how you know who you are. That is how you are set free.
