The Departed

31 Aug

The Departed…

In the New Testament we are told that we are children of Abraham. It doesn’t matter if you are Jewish or gentile; if you are born again, you are a child of Abraham.

Abraham is the first person in scripture to be called a Hebrew. Now the Hebrew word for “Hebrew” is actually Ivri. It means one who crosses over. Crossing over means leaving something or someplace behind.

That’s what Abraham did. He left his old life behind to follow God. So if you are born again, you are a spiritual Hebrew, an Ivri. And like Abraham, you have the power to leave the old behind.

One of the most important things you can ever do in the Lord is to leave. Leaving is a key to releasing blessings in your life. So learn to be good at leaving. Become a master at leaving… leaving sin, old habits, second best and what’s familiar or comfortable.

God desires to do something new in your life. But you can’t walk in newness of life unless you leave the old life behind. Always remember, you are a spiritual Ivri. And the power of a leaver is in you!

Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14

Cross over those barriers in your life. Leave the sins and old ways behind to enter the blessings in store for you.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
