For men indeed swear by the greater, and an oath for confirmation is for them an end of all dispute. Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us. This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil,
No one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house.
When you get to a place where you do not allow the Holy Spirit in a service, another spirit is going to take it’s place.
Everyone is chained to something
I. The Problem Is Not The Chain The Problem Is The Choice.
Your life is made up of the decisions you make.
II. Today Choices Become Tomorrow’s Chains.
The Problem Is Choices Become HABITS
Choices become habits and you become what you repeatedly do
Practice Makes Permanent
Now it’s not even what I do it has become who I am;
I have become more identified with my chains than his grace and I don’t even know how I got here
III. One Link At a Time
HE DIDN’T SEND YOU A CHAIN HE SENT YOU A CHOICE
What begins as a choice has now chained you because the devil convinced you the little choices didn’t matter
IV. Your Praise Will Either Break Your Chains Or Your Chains Will Break Your Praise
We need to swap what our chain is tied to
The boats not holding the anchor the anchor is holding the boat!
My Anchor has two words “but God”!
