Living in the Life Cycle Every Day
This world is caught in a death cycle. You don’t have to read the Bible to know that. All you have to do is look around. Inflation, recession, depression, sin, sickness, disease and death. They’re all part of the cycle of death that has been keeping this world in check ever since Adam joined Satan in the Garden of Eden.
Sadly enough, they often have kept the children of God in check too. They shouldn’t have. But they have.
Read today’s scripture one more time. This verse means that you and I, as born-again believers, aren’t locked into the death cycle of the world anymore. We can step out of it and into the life cycle of God. We’ve been set free!
“Brother Copeland, how can you say we’re free? This last swing in the economy ruined my business!”
No, it didn’t. It was your participation in it that ruined your business.
“The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made [us] free from the law of sin and death.”
Hallelujah! We can live debt free, poverty free and recession free right in the middle of a world filled with financial ruin.
“Nobody can do that!”
Yes, Somebody can. In fact, Somebody did…Jesus.
He healed the sick, raised the dead, cast out demons, rebuked the storm. Nothing could control Him—not disease, not circumstances, not finances, not criticism, not conspiracy, not demonic forces, not even death itself! Now that’s freedom!
You can live the same way by copying Him. Imitate Jesus. He lived His life by doing what He saw His Father do and by saying what He heard His Father say (John 8:28-29). He lived His life by copying His Father!
So how do you know what to copy? By reading the Word and by spending time in prayer and continual fellowship with your Father, beginning today. He’ll tell you what to do. He’ll show you how to do it. He’ll teach you how to live in the life cycle—every day.
Speak the Word
