One Way Deliverance

January 16, 2005
Pastor Chris Abernathy
Columbus, Georgia

Give Your people ears to hear and eyes to see today. I thank You, God, that as we receive the Word of God, that we would understand that it is to come inside of us and make a change for the better and for the good.

I thank You, God, that You’re hiding Your son behind the cross, that Your people would see and hear You only, and not me. Lord God, I’m decreasing right now that You would increase, Master. And Lord, I humbly ask that You would take the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart, that they would be acceptable in Thy sight, oh Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.

Father, I thank You that every demonic force is bound on today. Lord God, that You have commanded us to submit to the Word, Lord God, and to submit to Your Spirit, God. And we submit ourselves under the authority of the Holy Spirit, to lead us and guide us today, into all truth. In Jesus’ Name.

And the people of God said amen. Please stand to your feet and lift your Bibles high in the air this morning.

This is my Bible. I am who it says I am. I can do what it says I can do. And because of this Word I am made whole. Because of this Word I am delivered. Because of this Word I am victorious. Because of this Word I walk in prosperity. In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Turn in your Bibles with me to the book of Exodus. The book of Exodus.

On Friday night we came from the subject “Against All Odds.” We came from the subject “Against All Odds,” how we will make it, though all odds are against us. Amen. Amen. This morning we’re going to come from the subject “One-Way Deliverance. One-Way Deliverance.”

In the book of Exodus chapter one. When you have it, signify by saying amen. Look at verse one. It said:

1. Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob.

2. Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,

3. Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,

4. Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.

5. And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already.

6. And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation.

7. And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them.

8. Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.

Everybody say, “A new king.” Look at verse nine.

9. And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we:

10. Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land. 

Look at verse eleven.

11. Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses.

12. But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.

You may be seated in the house of the Lord.

After the death of the man of God, Joseph, the children of Israel had become a people that worshiped many different gods. I’m going to say that again. After the death of the man of God, Joseph, under this new system with the Pharaoh (glory to God) the children of Israel began to worship many different other gods, because they had no longer the direction that they used to have. They had no longer the guidance that they once had. They began to look to these lifeless idols to deliver them and to set them free from the bondage.

Let me explain to you what Joseph represented. You see, Joseph represented a generation that knew God. Amen, somebody. And they knew God as Jehovah. They knew God as a deliverer, as a provider, and as a way maker. For he had found himself (talking about Joseph) in many a fix, and that only the one and true and living God could deliver him out of. Can I get a witness today?

You see, in the book of Genesis chapter thirty-seven, Joseph found (glory to God) that he was hated and his brothers were jealous of him. They sold him into slavery.

And in the book of Genesis chapter thirty-nine he was framed as a rapist. Do you hear what I’m saying today? And sent into prison by Potiphar’s wife. But the Bible also said in Genesis thirty-nine and verse twenty-one that the Lord was with Joseph and showed him mercy and gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

You see, when you recognize that God is the only way, there is nothing that you cannot be delivered from. Come on, somebody.

You see, the children of Israel, they were under a new system. They were used to the system (glory to God) that Joseph was under. But the Bible said that Joseph died, and there arose a new Pharaoh that brought along a new system.

You see, we in the body of Christ, we’ve got to understand that we’re not supposed to be in the world’s system. Amen, somebody. But God through His Son, Jesus Christ, has delivered us from the world’s system. Because the world’s system seeks to control your every move. I don’t care if you don’t say amen. I’m going to preach anyhow.

You got to understand that welfare was never meant for a . . . Oh, my God. It wasn’t never meant for a child of God. But you see, the system will cause you to be comfortable. Come on, somebody. The system will allow you to move when it tells you to move, to do what it tells you to do, to say what (oh, my God) it wants you to say. Because it has become an idol. God, give Him praise today.

“So what are you saying, pastor? Are you saying to people that are on welfare that you’re wrong?” I’m not saying that you’re wrong. But you need not to make welfare your god. Oh, I wish I could get somebody to understand the Word of God today.

You see, the system is set up (glory to God) to control you. I don’t care (glory to God) what the system says in this world. Because I have a system (glory to God) that’s not of this world. I’m not going to be controlled by this system, because I have my allegiance to a system that this system cannot understand. Glory to God.

They had become complacent. Look at your neighbor and say, “I refuse to be complacent.” They had become stagnant. They had become in a place where they thought that they were supposed to be in bondage. Am I talking to anybody in this house? They thought that bondage was supposed to be a way of life.

Let me explain something to you, child of God. Jesus came that you might have liberty. The Bible tells me to stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ has made me free, and not to be again entangled with the yoke of bondage. I wish I had a witness in the house of God. You were never meant to be controlled by the system of the world.

They found themselves complacent, thinking within themselves that this is the way it’s always going to be. You see, you may be in poverty right now, but see, the Word of God is coming into you today, that You would understand that He never meant for you to be in poverty. Don’t you understand that He calls us kings and He calls us priests? We are supposed to walk in prosperity. We are supposed to be a royal priesthood. We are supposed to be the head and not the tail. We’re supposed to be above and not beneath. Do you hear what I’m saying, child of God? You need to tell that devil he’s a liar, and you refuse to be controlled.

We have too many saints of God operating under Pharaoh’s system. And we’ve been operating under Pharaoh’s system for so long that when I get up here and preach about Kingdom principles, you can’t understand it, because you’re not yet at a place where you understand that where you are was never the intent that God had for you to be.

But once you begin to get a revelation that all that is around you, not only you are supposed to be blessed, then you’ll say to yourself . . . You’ll come to yourself and say, “Wait a minute. It’s not supposed to be like this. I got a God “ (my God, somebody) “that’s a King of kings and a Lord of lords. And if He’s in royalty, I’m supposed to be in royalty too.” Stand on your feet and give God a praise.

The mentality has got to change. The mentality of the child of God (you may be seated) has got to change. You’ve got to understand that you’re in this world, but you’re not of this world. I need to say that again. In other words, you’re just a pilgrim passing through. Do you understand? I’m trying to break a yoke in the house of God today.

You’re in this world, but you’re not of this world. In other words, God has meant for you to come out of the world’s system. The world is not supposed to what? Control your every move. Do you hear what I’m saying? It’s not supposed to tell me where I can live and where I can’t live. Oh, my God. I wish I had a witness in the house of God today.

The children of Israel, the Bible said that they were going to be in bondage for four hundred years. Four hundred years. Generation after generation in bondage. Why? Because they didn’t know who their Deliverer was. You see, if you don’t know who your Deliverer is, then you’re going to stay (oh, my God) in that place where you are. But Jesus said in John fourteen and verse six, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” You got to understand that there is a way out. Look at your neighbor and say, “There’s a way out.” There’s a way out.

And God sent a man named Moses to tell them who this deliverer was. He began to minister that the people of God would be able to come out from under this hard taskmaster. He began to do what God instructed him to do, that the people would understand that it’s time to get rid of all of those gods. Because those gods can’t heal you no way. They had gods of stone and of gold and of silver.

And if you’re pressing towards the gods of silver and gold, let me tell you something, those gods may work for a little while, but get in trouble; need somebody to hold you; need somebody to comfort you. There’s no comfort like there is in Jesus.

And they were delivered. I feel You, God.

And so here we have the man of God. And he comes. And he’s a deliverer, a form of Christ to them. And he begins to deliver them out of that system. And he brings them to the Red Sea, and there is a wall that they cannot pass through. And so God begins to work miracles. He begins to part the sea, that they would understand and see who God is, that He’s all powerful, and that there’s nothing impossible for Him. He began to work miracle after miracle, one after the other, just to prove who He is. Do you hear what I’m saying? Everything that He did said, “I am that I am.” Oh, my God. I wish I could preach somebody happy today. Oh, my God.

So He began to work miracle after miracle. But let me tell you something. If you get locked in a system for too long that’s not of God, it takes a while before you can break that yoke, that you can break that mentality.

In the book of Numbers chapter eleven, the Bible said that they were in the wilderness. And it was a dry place. But God was feeding them manna from heaven. And they didn’t like the diet that God put them on, because God was trying to get their flesh to a place where it would submit to God. Oh, my God, somebody. But they didn’t like that diet.

Let me tell you something. When God delivers me, whatever diet God wants to put me on, God can put me on it. But they began to reminisce, “We remember when we were back in Egypt.” Egypt (oh, my God) means bondage. “And how we did eat the fish” (oh, my God) “and the garlic and the onions.” They began to reminisce about bondage.

Let me explain something to you, child of God. Once you come out of this system, and though you go into a hard place, you need to refuse to go back into bondage. I don’t care what the situation. I don’t care what the circumstance. Look at your neighbor and say, “Don’t look back.”

God was showing them a new system. And though God was working it out for them, they still looked back. Don’t you know . . .

Let me explain this to you. Don’t you know that the government, this system of this world knows how to feed you, to keep you in a place where you will (oh, my God) serve it? Because the way to a person, most of the time, is through their appetite. And it’s just like government stamps. I know people that are one person in the house, and they’re getting like three and four and five hundred dollars worth of stamps, because this system wants you to think that it’s a blessing when it’s a curse. You better bless God in this house.

The system had them in bondage because of their appetite. The system will keep you in bondage because of your appetite. You don’t hear me. That’s why people that are on welfare . . . Now, if you’re on welfare, don’t you get mad at me today. I’m trying to teach you something. When you look at their buggy, they have steaks. Oh, you don’t want to hear me. They got pork chops. They got leg of lamb. You don’t . . . Oh, they eat better than you do, because the system is trying to keep them in bondage by their appetite.

And that’s why when they begin to go through a hard place, after God has delivered them from the hard task master, they remembered how they used to eat when they were under the old system.

A lot of you have come to Christ, and Satan has tried to steal everything from you. And now . . . Listen. And now you’re looking back when you used to be in bondage. I hear people say, “Well, I used to have this, and I used to have that.” But God didn’t give it to you. I would rather wait on the blessing of the Lord than make it rich and out of no sorrow with it. I wish you would get up and praise God in this house today.

Look at your neighbor and say, “I’m coming out. I’m coming out. I’m coming out. I’m coming out.” You can stand there like you don’t hear what I’m saying if you want to, but I’m coming out. I’m not going to be controlled by this system. I’m not under a hard taskmaster that doesn’t understand and feel the infirmity that I go through. I’m up under Jesus.

They were under a system that controlled them. The environment that they were in kept them depressed and oppressed. The system out here is designed to keep you depressed and oppressed. And it’s designed to keep you down. It’s designed to say, “If you do what I tell you to do, then you’ll have something to eat and a place to stay. But if you don’t do what I tell you to do, you’re going to start, and you’re going to be outside.” But I don’t know about you. I saw Jehovah Jireh, and oh, my God, He’s the Lord God, my Provider. He’s El Shaddai, and He’s the God of more than enough.

Listen to this word today. (You don’t have to play.) Listen to this word today, because we’ve got to grab a hold of it. We’ve got to grab a hold of this word today. Because I don’t know about you, but I’m saying to myself, “Enough is enough.” You can get upset today if you want to, and you can stay in the bondage that you’re in. But I refuse to be bound when I’ve been made free. I’m saying today, “Enough is enough.”

I know who my Deliverer is. I know that cattle on a thousand hills belongs to Him. I know that the earth is the Lord’s and the fulness thereof, the world and everything that dwells therein. I know my God has (my God), has blessed me (glory to God) in heavenly places with Christ Jesus. I understand my inheritance. I understand that the manifestation is first in the spirit before it comes into the natural. I understand that I pray, and when I pray He hears me; and therefore, there are results. If I learn how to wait on God, I’m going to see . . . Oh, my God. I wish somebody would catch on fire.

One-way deliverance. One-way deliverance. You can’t make a phone call to no man to get delivered. You need to call on Jesus. You need to call on El Shaddai. Don’t you understand that He’s Jehovah Raphe, your Healer? He’s Jehovah Shalom, your peace. Do you understand that today, that He’s Jehovah Shamma? He’s always there. Do you hear what I’m saying to you today? You don’t have to go looking for Him, because He’s right with you right now. And whatever you need He’s able to supply it.

He delivered them from the system. You may be seated. And He told them, He said, “I’m going to give you a land flowing with milk and honey.” And so they sent out spies to spy out the blessing that God had for them. But everybody that was sent out, except for two–Joshua and Caleb–came back with an evil report.

When I begin to tell you what God is going to do, and you’re looking in the natural, and you begin to say, “I don’t see it,” I know you don’t see it, because you’re trying to look through the carnal realm. But if you would ask God to open up your eyes to spiritual things, you would begin to see the grapes. Do you hear what I’m saying? You will begin to see the fertile soil and the fertile land that God has prepared for you. But you have got to come out of that old system and begin to give God glory, even when you don’t know what’s going to happen next.

They were in a different system. What system are you in today? What system are you under? When I talk to people a lot of times, they say . . . I say, “How you doing?”

They say, “I’m trying to make it,” or, “I’m making it.”

That’s never my testimony. I’m blessed coming in, and I’m blessed going out. You see, you can’t judge me by what you see right now. Because it ain’t over until He says it’s over. Oh, my God, somebody. You see I don’t go around with a face of mourning. You can tell when a lot of people are going through something, because their face is in a place of mourning. You can tell people when they need some money, because their face is all in a place where it’s always down.

But you don’t never know when I have a need. Do you hear what I’m saying? You never know, because I’m the same as when I’m . . . Oh, my God. You don’t hear me today. You don’t see my face down on the ground because I need finances. I’m going to stay the same. I’m going to be on top of Mount Zion whether I have or whether I don’t have. Come on. Praise Him today.

Come out of your pity party today, and let your light shine. How is somebody going to get saved looking at your prune face? How is somebody going to see the Christ in you when your face always carries a frown? How is somebody going to be drawn to Jesus, when on the Job you’re constantly complaining.

A lot of times we as saints, we complain more on the job than the people that are unsaved. And sometimes we cause more commotion than the people that are unsaved. We gossip more than the people that are unsaved. Oh, you don’t want to hear me, but I’m going to preach it anyhow.

He’s speaking to us today. He’s saying that system that you’re trying to operate in, He’s not going to bless you. Blue Cross and Blue Shield doesn’t sign your check. Saint Francis doesn’t sign your check. Jesus signs your check.

And see, when we begin to get the mentality that He was able to turn water into wine, that He was able to feed all that multitude with the fishes and the loaves, that we deal with a God of multiplication, when we begin to understand that He’s able to work miracles, one after the . . . When we get that revelation that He can do anything, then we can be like Paul, that whatsoever state we’re in, we can be content. Give Him praise today. Give Him praise today.

If you’re depending on the system, you’re making a mistake. Notice I said depending on. If you’re depending on this world’s system to get you by, you’re making a mistake. I feel the Anointing. If you’re depending on Pharaoh to feed you, then you’re making a mistake.

Don’t you understand that at any time Pharaoh can cause you to have to get the mark? Do you understand what I’m saying? That you may be able to eat yourself and to feed your family, don’t you understand that he can give it to you and then take it back from you when he gets ready? But if you get fed by the Word of God, He can turn your nothing into something.

He delivered them. He was trying to show them that you don’t have to be in bondage to be blessed. Somebody needs to hear that today. You don’t have to be in bondage to be blessed. It’s time to turn everything over to Kingdom principles. It’s time. It’s time to change our mentality. I feel the Anointing of God.

Somebody needs to hear this today. Because in this season we depend on income tax checks, don’t we? And we’re looking for it. There’s nothing wrong with looking for that income tax check. But see, but if you’re looking for it the wrong way, it has become a god. You don’t want to hear it. And it’s controlling you. And you know when you send it in, they say it’s going to take four to six weeks, and you’re going to check that mailbox every time. And every time it’s not there, you’re going to get disappointed.

God doesn’t operate like that. If God says you’re blessed, then you’re blessed before you get the income tax check. I’m trying this morning to change our mentality. I’m trying to get us to a place that we will understand that whether we have it now or we don’t it doesn’t not constitute whether or not He is who He says He is.

Come out of the system. Get out of the system. Get out of it. We’ve all made mistakes. We’ve all been on the brink, most of us of being debt free. And then we go back out and say, “I’m just going to get this.”

“Well, you can, you know, if you get a credit card and you put it on credit today, you can get an extra ten percent along with that forty percent that’s already marked down.” And we begin the cycle all over again. We were almost there, but temptation is so great that we yielded ourselves to the system again.

Don’t you understand how strong the system is? It plays on your mind. It plays on your mind. It plays on you. It tells you that it’s going to be alright when it’s setting you up for failure. It’s meant to set you up for failure. That’s the way it is. And that’s why we have to understand that there’s only one way to get delivered.

What gods are you serving this morning? What God is controlling you right now? Let me tell you that when you make those bills and you can’t pay them, it’s a part of the strategy of Satan, because he controls the system to keep you in bondage, that when they call your house, and you look at the caller ID and you say, “Uh, uh. I know who that is.” And then you were happy, and then all of a sudden that false joy leaves.

Come out of the system. Work your way out of the system. Do what you need to do to get out of the system. And when you’re debt free, don’t go back into the system. Because there’s no one in here that’s at the age right now where they cannot come out of the system. There are results in prayer.

At Columbus State I’ve seen people in my classes that were sixty and above. Do you understand what I’m saying? It’s never too late to do anything. Because if they can go to that school, then you can come to this school. Come on, saints.

We’re saints of God, and He never meant for our heads to be hung low, wondering how we’re going to make it. He never meant for it to be that way. We’ve made mistakes along the way. We’ve made mistakes. There are areas where we’ve been just, we might as well say childish. In certain areas we have childish mistakes. But when I became a man I put away what? Childish things. In other words, when I become mature, I begin to put away childish things. I begin to be able to wait on God.

You see, I understand that a lot of times what’s instant is not nutritious; it’s not going to bless me. Do you understand? Sometimes I need to wait. I need to put something in the oven every now and then. Nobody wants to spend that time waiting for it to be done. Nobody wants to say that money. Save it up (glory to God) until they can what they want to get. Everybody wants it right now. Why? Because we want to keep up with the Joneses. But let me tell you something. The Joneses are going to keep you in bondage. Do you hear what I’m saying today? Are you alright? Do you hear what I’m saying today?

Hear this word. Hear this word. In Numbers He had delivered them. He had delivered them. He began to bring the food down from heaven. And He put them on a diet that was going to bless them. But it wasn’t what they wanted, so they began to look back. They began to look back.

How many folks we got looking back? (It’s alright. He’s alright.) How many folks have begun to look back? We’re looking back in the past, forgetting about how we were in bondage to that thing, but it was something that was pleasing to the flesh. Do you hear what I’m saying?

There have been people that I was with in my past, it seemed like every time I turned around, they were blessing me. But at the same time they were holding me in bondage. Because they were not a part of God’s plan for my life. Can somebody identify with me today?

We got a lot of single folks that go to this church, lot of single folks. There are people that have been in our past that every time we . . . All we had to do was say we want, and there it was. “Can I have . . .” And there it . . .

 . . . and they weren’t faithful, but they sure knew how to buy me this and buy me that. Been there. Done that.

He’s speaking to us today. He’s speaking to us. What has you in bondage? What is keeping you bound? What is keeping you bound? The Bible said when they cried out, their cry came up to heaven. And God delivered them.

If you need a deliverance today, then you need to open up your mouth and cry, “Jesus!” The Bible says that He is ever-present help in the time of trouble.

A lot of single women with children, a lot of them are on welfare. You want to know why? Because we got negroes that won’t take care of their children. And a mother has got to take care of her children while they’re at a certain age before they can go to school. Because, sweetheart, once they’re in a place where they can go to Head Start and go to school, then you need to go out and look for a job. Oh, you don’t want to hear me.

Sometimes things we don’t want to say, because sometimes seem like they cut and they hurt. But see, if somebody doesn’t give us truth, then you’ll always live in a false reality. Amen, somebody. Amen.

There is something, something that can be done. Because there was a woman that told me, she said that she didn’t have any food, because she didn’t have a job, and she was looking for a job. And she went to the government. She went to the system. And she went to try to get some stamps. She said, “I don’t have any food.”

They said, “Well, what do you have?”

Said, “Well, I have a car.”

They told her, “You need to sell your car.”

“Wait a minute. What kind of foolishness is that? The only means to get around to go and look for a job . . . Because I have this car you’re saying that I am not in need?”

The system wants to control. I’m just trying to break it down to you. The system wants to control you. See, I wanted to bring some of you all . . . I wanted to bring you out.

He wants to control you. Come out of it. Pray about it. Pray about it. See, when you’re sick or, you know, your body’s going through and you need some type of assistance, I’m not talking about that. That’s not what . . . I’m not talking . . . There are a lot of people that are disabled that just can’t do any better. Amen, somebody. Amen. But when I can, then I should. Oh, I feel the Anointing of God on me today.

I want to edify you today that He that began this good work in you is faithful to perform it unto the day of Jesus Christ. He began a good work in you. He’s not going to leave the work in you unfinished. He’s going to what? Perfect everything that concerns you. You see, He’s a rewarder of the diligent. When I’m diligent, then God’s going to begin to work. See, God is looking for consistency. That’s why I tell you, you know, even today a lot of people are not at church, right? But I tell you, I say, “Saints,” I say, “You need to come to the house. You need to get the Word. You need to apply the Word.”

I don’t try . . . I give you revelation, but I don’t try to take it so deep, when you leave out of here, you be like, “I don’t know what pastor was talking about.” Because the Bible says that the Gospel is supposed to be preached with simplicity. I need to be able to apply this to my life.

So wherever you are today you need to make up in your mind that if you’re operating in the system and you’re depending on the system, that you’re going to get rid of that god, because he’s not the true and living God. He’s not. The system is not. It’s not the real god. Jehovah is the real God. His Son Jesus is the real God. The Holy Spirit of promise that is right here with us today, that Jesus sent His Name to lead us and to guide us into all truth, He is God. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, they all agree in one. They are one. Does that make any sense to the carnal mind? No.

How many of you are tired of the system? I just want to see your hand. If you’re tired of the system . . . I mean, be real about it. You can’t change anything until you get tired of it. We won’t change until we’re tired . . . You know, if we’re tired of something, we’ll change it, won’t we? When we get tired of that husband or that wife, we’ll change . . . No, I ain’t going there like that. That ain’t right, pastor.

I’m saying these things to bring us into reality. We’ve been bound for too long. We’ve been in bondage for too long. I’m the type of person, I like to be free. I like to be free. I like to be free. I like to be free. I don’t like to be all stressed out. I don’t like to be . . . Uh, uh. Don’t stress me.

I have people come to me, and I look at them, and I look right through them, and I know that they’re coming really to try to stress me. And so I listen, but I don’t take it in. I listen, but I don’t . . . Do you hear what I’m saying? I listen, but I don’t take it in, because you ain’t going to stress me, because I’m not your god. I’m not.

He said to cast your cares upon Him, because He cares for you. I’ve got to cast . . . I’ve got to learn how to throw it on Him.

The other night . . . And I’m getting ready to close. The other night I was in my bedroom, laying in my bed, praying, you know. And God just brought something to me. It was like, “You know, just cast everything on Me.”

So everything that I felt it was a burden to me, I began to cast it on Him. I said, “Lord, I give You this. Lord, I give You that. Lord, I give You this. Lord, I just give them to you.”

There are things that you need to give Him that you love. You just need to . . . It’s become a burden. “Lord, I give it to you.” Does that mean that, you know, He’s not, that I don’t need it any more? No. Because even people . . . Listen. And I’m going to take you here, and I’m going to . . . Even people can be a burden to you. Even the people that you love . . . You don’t want to hear that, because . . . I know the married folks are probably sitting like this, on the inside they’re saying, “Pastor, you’re right.” No, I’m messing with you all. See, I’m trying to loosen you up, because you’re supposed to have liberty in the house of God. Amen.

When we get out there, we laugh and we joke. We come to the house of God and . . . I know they didn’t move. I know they didn’t say amen. Uh, uh. Be free. Be free. Be free. Be free.

But like I said, even people can become a burden. It doesn’t mean that you don’t love them. But sometimes some of the things that they say and some of the things that they do can cause you to be burdened, can cause heaviness to come on you. You need to give them to the Lord. It’s not always, well, you need to sever relationships. No. It’s not. Sometimes you’re trying to be their god. Sometimes you’re trying to control. Them. Sometimes you want them to move at your pace, when God has already set a pace for them to move by. I’m being real with you today. We want people where we are. Let God move with them. Let God do with them. If God needs to whip them, guess what, He’ll tear that tail out, won’t He? He will. Better than you can with your mouth.

So today there’s one-way deliverance, and it’s through Jesus. Jesus said, “I am the way.” He said, “I am the door.” He’s the door. And He said when we find Him we can go in and out and find pasture. He doesn’t try to keep us all bound up. We can go in and out. We can be free.

Now if your mind is stuck on a bill this morning, or if your mind is stuck on, you know, your financial situation, or your mind is stuck on a person that’s just not, you know, doing what you want them to do, then you need to cast that care on the Lord today.

If you’re on a job, and you’re tired of this job, then that means that you need to give that job to the Lord. See, don’t complain about the job if, you know, if you’re not making steps to move from that job. Hello, somebody. If you’re not trying to do something to move from it, then evidently you’re not that tired of it. But it’s when you begin to make steps to move from that place that’s keeping you bound and in bondage, then God can move for you. Faith without what? Works is dead. One-way deliverance. Give God praise today.
