This is all I have.
Are you in slavery and bondage to some fear, jealousy, bitterness, hurt, guilt, shame, inadequacy, past experience or regret?
If you let go of the fear, jealousy, guilt, shame, bitterness, hurt, anger, inadequacy, resentment or unforgiveness, you will not know how to act. You want to hold onto your worries instead of being set free. This has been a part of your life so long you don’t know how to act without the emotional baggage.
For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Matthew 25:29-30
What you have is sin manifested through worry, fear, anxiety, jealousy, bitterness, hurt, guilt, shame, inadequacy, regret and unforgiveness. Are you willing to let go of the emotional baggage to receive freedom and forgiveness? It is like remaining in jail holding onto your emotional baggage even after the warden has set you free. You are not guilty, yet you stay in jail holding onto the emotional baggage.
Can you think of anything over which God would not forgive you? If you confess your sin, HE is faithful and just to forgive your sin. HE will cleanse you from all unrighteousness. HE does not remember your sins as far as the east is from the west. As deep as the deepest sea your sin has been removed from God’s memory.
God wants to restore you and give you newness of life of all HE HAS. HE wants you to live and experience the power of the forgiveness of sin. HE unlocks the door to the jail cell. Are you still standing in the jail cell with the door open and unlocked? You are NOT GUILTY. You can get out of jail and receive the freedom of forgiveness of sin. HE wants you to walk out of jail and receive what HE HAS which is a life of love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, faithfulness, forgiveness, contentment, self-control and freedom.
HE will give you what HE HAS. What is the condition to become the “WHO HAS”? If you will confess your sin in earnest repentance, HE will purify you, restore you, make you right, fill you up emotionally, give you life, heal your hurts, remove the guilt, shame and regret, remove your fear, give you the power to forgive as God has forgiven you, give you strength, fill you with HIS love, give you peace which passes all understanding, give you joy in the middle of the storm, give you a sound mind, give you gentleness, give you contentment and give you all HE HAS in abundance.
When all you have is anger, worry, regrets, bitterness, hurt, anxiety, jealousy, unforgiveness, shame and guilt, it is time to be filled with the Holy Spirit and receive ALL HE HAS. Which is better: ALL GOD HAS or all you have?
