Do not despair in these times. Allow Me to lift the veil of oppression, fear, doubt, worry and stress from you. Choose to breathe in My life-giving words, words that will release you from what others may think or say of you. Your circumstances may look unchangeable but as I remove this veil of untruths you will begin to see with new hope and you will be able to breathe in new life and strength.
It is important that you know who I am and who you are in Me. Even though circumstances would try to dictate your future they have no power over My children, who know what I say about them and to them. Listen carefully to My view on your life. Do not let your eyes or heart rule over My declarations for you.
For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority. In him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not performed by human hands. Your whole self ruled by the flesh was put off when you were circumcised by Christ, having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead.
When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having cancelled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.
