About 6 months ago, I asked God to help me live an unconfined life before the world. Half way into this journey I had a breakdown. I got worn down by the complications associated with being inside of my physical body. I have a long way to go to get back to the way I used to be, but after a couple days of being alone, praying, reading my bible and going through the remorseful stage of not being able to control my emotions and feelings. God has taught me something very important.
God is telling me that I should not feel bad by the fact that my spirit no longer wants to be confined by my flesh. I am rediscovering the truth that I am a spiritual being clothed in earthly flesh. It is natural for anyone that is maturing in Christ to get to a point where he is tired of being controlled and define by the flesh.
Now, I admit I like so many other people did not handle this process well, but I have been reminded of a question that God asked Adam in the Garden,“Who told you, you were naked?”
The question came to me in a different form; the question was “Who told you, you were disabled?”
Men have fell into the trap of the defining themselves by their flesh rather than their spirits. Ever since then, we have been trying to hide, cover up or make up for what we perceive to be nakedness, weakness or character flaws based on our flesh. And what God is telling me at this time in my life is to stop being controlled by your flesh. I have made you a spiritual human being in my image. “Who told you, you were disabled?”
Maybe you’re not going through a mental breakdown. Maybe you are attempting spiritual escape. Maybe you have finally arrived to the place that I am beginning to get to and that is, what is physical is not who God made you to be. You like I, am ready to break free from the physical.
I share this for everyone that may find themselves getting worn down and tired of being controlled and defined by whatever situation they find themselves in. You feel in the blank.Who told you, you were…..
