Do you ever get distracted from doing what you know is right? I know I do. Sometimes, it feels like there’s this little voice inside my head telling me to do what I want instead of what Heavenly Father wants. It’s like there’s an inner Rebel at work, steering me away from the path of obedience.
But I’m starting to realize that breaking up with Rebel might be the next step in my walk of faith. And I’m not alone in this struggle. I discovered that rebellion in the Body of Christ is at epidemic proportions. We live in rebellious times.
Our inner Rebels have this mantra of “free to be me to do my own thing.” And while that might sound liberating, it’s leading us away from the path of obedience and onto the broad path of rebellion. And that’s a dangerous place to be because it blocks our intimacy with Jesus and halts our spiritual growth.
So what is rebellion, exactly? It’s not just about the clothes we wear or the music we listen to. It’s about overriding biblical truths with lies and then acting on those lies. And that’s why breaking up with Rebel is so essential. We must align ourselves with Father’s commands, not the rebellion.
Are you struggling with your own inner Rebel? Trust me, you’re not alone. But there is a way out. It starts with recognizing the problem and then acting to break free from it. Let’s walk the narrow path of obedience together and leave the rebellion behind.
One day during my secret place time, Jesus said to me, “Tell others it’s wrong to go their way. Rebellion isn’t of Me. So I surrendered every opportunity I had to submit to Father.
He would call Me to Himself and pour out His heart regarding His people. Then, he sent Me to call them back to Him. But, unfortunately, many refused to hear, and those who heard, few responded. Sadness gripped My heart as I pondered Father’s dilemma. He loves without condition and, in return, is rejected, even despised.
The world hasn’t changed much. Even though the Holy Spirit is on earth, many reject Him also. If they repent and embrace Him, the Holy Spirit will lead them on straight paths to experience peace. Any other way results in defeat rather than victory.”
Breaking Up with Rebel is Our Decision
Have you ever felt torn between two choices? Like you’re standing at a crossroads, and you’re not sure which way to go? The Bible talks about this very dilemma. It offers us two options: Heavenly Father’s way or the devil’s highway. It’s the narrow path or the broad path, the high road or the low road. It’s black or white, holy or evil. But let’s be honest, sometimes we rebel against these truths, right? Our inner Rebel protests, saying, “If I feel like it, anything goes!” And that’s where things get tricky.
You see, the Rebel in us lives in the gray area. It’s a murky, confusing place where Satan owns the territory. As believers, we know that choosing to be disobedient to Father’s commands is the wrong choice. But staying on the straight and narrow path is not always easy. Sometimes, we say, “I don’t feel like being obedient,” and we end up falling off the narrow path into a big mess. And then what do we do? We blame Father for not protecting us. But that’s just a way of avoiding personal responsibility.
Here’s the thing: Father never promised us that life would be easy. But He did promise to be with us every step of the way. He asks us to trust the Holy Spirit as our loving Guide, and then He works everything out for our good. It’s not always easy to follow the Spirit’s lead, but it’s always worth it. And it’s better than the alternative.
So why do we keep our inner Rebel around? Maybe it’s because it’s familiar, like a dysfunctional old friend. Perhaps it’s comforting in a weird way. But in the end, it’s not worth it. It’s better to drop that Rebel like a hot potato and embrace the life that Father has for us.
Breaking Up is Liberating
Are you tired of battling with your inner Rebel?
Well, I have some good news for you. As believers, we know that our Rebel has an expiration date. So, why prolong the agony by beating around the bush? It’s time to be courageous and say goodbye. Goodbyes can be challenging, but it’s time to bite the bullet and let go, whether we feel prepared or not. It’s like ripping off a band-aid quickly – breaking up with Rebel needs to be done promptly, so why wait? Let’s follow the Holy Spirit and lean on Him for the power required to walk out of our lives free of Rebel. Are you ready to take the first step towards freedom in a Rebel-free life?
“Walk in the Spirit, and let the Spirit bring order to your life. If you do, you will never give in to your selfish and sinful cravings. For everything the flesh desires goes against the Spirit, and everything the Spirit desires goes against the flesh. So there is a constant battle raging between them that prevents you from doing the good you want to do.” Galatians 5:16-17 (VOICE)
