Consider What I’m Clinging To
In review of Matthew 18:18 it says, “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
What we bind here on earth will be bound in heaven, what we loosen hear will be loosened there.
What this means to me:
What I bind here on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever I loosen hear on earth will be loosened in Heaven.
Today's passage reminds me that whatever I cling to here on earth will be what I have in eternity. This can be good and heavenly things of God or selfish things today that will end up separating me from my heavenly father.
Ideally, any decisions I make in this life should be God-guided and based on discernment of his Word. As a believer, I have the responsibility therefore to use God's guidance in making decisions, and seeking to resolve conflicts. Handling problems God's way will have an impact now and for eternity. Therefore, I should be binding myself to the clear teach of Scripture.
Overall, God wants me to have complete victory in every area of my life. I have absolute authority by the power of Almighty God to put my foot on the neck of my enemies. I am the triumphant one. He has given me the power to bind things on earth so that my enemies will scatter!
I can start by writing down the things God gives me to accomplish and get to it! Don’t let any naysayers or even my selfish desires hold me back. I can, with God’s help, determine my future. I can act as if I can accomplish anything I set my mind to, because with God on my side, I will!
