The message of God Calling today is based on what Jesus said, “Come unto me all ye that are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”, and “Behold, I make all things new.” It speaks of broken wings and broken voices, and the power of love, which can make both new again, and even better than before.
“Earth’s strands”, those things that would keep us from soaring and singing to/at our maximum level, our utmost, are numerous. Sometimes we don’t even recognize or see them because they come in many forms and can be invisible to the naked eye. Each strand is like a little snare, wrapping itself around a feather; or sometimes wrapping itself around the throat. We flap our wings, we pull and tug, we squeak and squawk and scream, pulling against the strands that, one by one, pluck the feathers out and tighten against our throats until we are unable to speak, to sing, to fly…to try.
These strands are actually things like abuse, addictions, condemnation, fear, failure, guilt, hatred, loss, mourning, perceived unworthiness and/or ability, rejection, shame, violence and many others that come as a result of lack of knowledge. Jesus said, “The truth you know will set you free.” All those “earth strands” are actually lies that we buy into or have been conditioned to accept; about our circumstances, ourselves, and our hope. Your “voice” and your “feathers” are your hope. If Satan can get you to believe you have no hope-(no feathers, no voice) that’s when those strands become chains that will keep you down and cause death. Your hope dies, your dreams die, your spirit dies, your desire dies, you die. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life.” The way to break those strands, those lies is to get the truth about what those things really are (to expose them), the truth about who you really are in God’s eyes and in Christ Jesus, and truth about the authority and power (ability) you really have; and that breathes life back into your spirit. It brings your desire, your dreams, and your hope back to life. It brings you back to a renewed life; and one that’s even better than before. We are like wounded and bound up birds, tangled in these strands and chains. But, when you put yourself in the hands of the Master Physician, He cuts away all those things by the light of the truth and by love. And, He loves us so very much!
