Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; (Col 2:14 KJV)
Without Him, life is a cosmic of opposition and distress. A burden akin to swimming against the flow of a mighty river! It is spent in pain and tears. This is serious; the world was tailored to reject you. An inhabitable land for any human to survive and live a maximum life on his own!
Today put the cross into perspective. Understand its purpose because a lack of knowledge will keep you in bondage. By death on the cross, Jesus blotted out the handwriting of ordinances that was against you. All the laws and regulations that were put together by the enemy of your soul (the devil) were wiped away. The ordinances do not contain your name anymore! They are void of effect in the law that now governs your life.
You cannot be a slave of poverty; it was one of the things on these ordinances. You cannot be a slave of disease. Fear cannot enslave you. All forms of spirits and marauding demons that kept generations past in your family in bondage meet their demise at the cross. The cross took these things out of your way, meaning you must progress unhindered! He nailed this document to His cross giving you freedom to live, prosper, succeed and raise the next generation of champions.
The one who does not understand what Jesus did on the cross remains in the darkest alley of life. Groping, he is directionless and his spirit an open shaft for the devil and his cohorts to use at will, to volunteer for every experiment pleasing to their sight and kill without blinking. The cross is the sure plan given for your victory. It is an assurance of a great tomorrow, an insurance policy that pays whilst you live.
Contemplate the power of the cross today, consider the blood that was shed for the freedom that you must gladly receive. Life is a gift to you, live it to the full to please the One who gave His life so you can have yours. Live it with knowledge of Him. Express the uniqueness He put in you. Shine bright, that the world will rejoice in the One who made you. Refuse a low life governed by the enemy’s laws and rise above the limitations around you. If you have not received Jesus as Lord and Saviour yet, make it a point you do as you contemplate the price He paid for your freedom.
