How is it in there? I mean, how is it to be held in that tiny space that we call our life? It’s funny because most of us are locked in a jail without walls or bars, but we can’t seem to find our way out of it. We can look over to the other side of this room that we call our life, and see no barriers to exit, but for some reason we find ourselves being held with no way out. This is the intent in a real physical jail with jail cells made up of bars and walls, to keep you in with no way out. However, it is not the intent of our Father that you wake up everyday with access to other ways of living this life, but yet you remain held in your life’s cell. I wouldn’t advise this to the inmates that are serving time for doing a crime, but to those of you that are locked up in your life, and being held in your life against your will, It’s time for you to “Break out.” Jesus said that he came so that you may have life, but have life more abundantly. Yes, even Jesus wants you out of that little cell that you are being held in called your life, and expand it into a life of abundance: no longer being held, or limited to what you know. Run through those non-barrier walls of what you know only, and head straight into the other doors of life called what you don’t know: only doing what you know is going to leave you not doing much more. Everyone else that lives a life free from the jail cells of their own life, live with the freedom to reach out into other lives so that they can expand. The only reason a person can be held in a jail without walls or bars is because they do not reach out to expand beyond their life.
This is why we have to keep our hearts, and minds open to hear the fresh direction added to our lives from God. Things are changing up all the time, and if we don’t hear how to handle the new changes, the old information will not help us expand into our new lives. Once the written, and spoken word starts us along the path of righteousness, I can still hear parts of that passage saying to me remember that eyes have not seen nor ears heard what the Lord has in store for you. So I keep my channels open for the things that I don’t know that will be coming to me as I continue on my expansion. The first time that I stop looking for the greater things to come my way, is the time that I begin to have a jail without walls or bars. I allow them to have an existence when I stop allowing the new things to take shape in my life. I tell my wife all the time that if I only had what I know to depend on, I would surrender right now, game over. I’m so bold, and confident of the outcome of my expansion only because I know that the father is in charge of the outcome. How can you lose? I can, at least on my level, understand why Jesus had no problem with the events of that day three turning out as he had forecasted for all to hear. He knew that he was getting up from that grave as declared. He would not be held in a jail without walls or bars simply because he would not expand his life into the door of expansion.
Jesus gave up the ghost because it was the only way to complete the expansion process, and not be held in a jail against the will of his Father. The Father was there to help his Son complete his expansion process all the way to the cross, and the Father is here in his power with the times and seasons for you to complete your expansion process. What is it that stands in your jail cell, called your life, that’s trying to keep you held up against your will? The time is now to “break out” once and for all. We become locked up once we have done all that we can do, and then lack the trust in the Father to come to our rescue. It is no surprise to the father that you are out on a limb, out in limbo. It is exactly where he expected to find you. He was not looking for you to be anywhere else. If Jesus had come out of the garden concerned about the limb of death that he had come to, He would have not surrendered himself to the soldiers to be given over to his expansion process. He would have been held against the will of his Father in a jail with no walls or bars. When you come to that place that requires you to surrender, and go with a situation that is against your will, just remember that this situation will hand you over to your expansion process in the exact place where the Father is looking for you to be. Father can not rescue you if you are afraid to trust him, and not enter into the expansion process. Those that let fear keep them from replacing their will with the father’s will, will remain held in the jail of life without walls or bars. It’s Fathertime: Break Out!
