Perception of Freedom
Sometimes we're already free but we don't realize it. We don't believe it or act like it?
There's a story about an eagle that got trapped in a chicken cage as an egg. He hatched there and then he grew up with the chickens.
He didn't think that he could fly because all of those around him told him that none of them could fly -including him. He believed them.
This eagle grew up thinking that he was a chicken. When he saw an eagle fly overhead he watched longingly. He had the urge to fly but never tried it because of what he believed.
You're not the only one. God told us in Ephesians 3:20 that He is able to give us above what we ask for -or even think of.
More promises are given to us in John 14:12 as Jesus said that when we believe on Him and what He did, we would also do those things! Then He went on to tell us that greater things than these would we do because He went to His Father!
That's a lot! It's far more than the chickens said we could do!
Who We Really Are
Once we're born again we are transferred to the kingdom of God. This means that we are heirs to what God has made available to us!
Think about it? In this world if we find out that we are heirs to a lot we generally go to get it right away!
So you can avoid living like a chicken! Remember, chickens walk around being afraid, they never go flying, and they believe that what they see is all that they get.
Fly in Jesus!
Change your perception and fly free!

What is Enlightenment - Meaning Definition and Its relation to Self-Realization
What is Enlightenment?What do we really mean when we talk of Enlightenment? Is it not the bloom of life for a true seeker of spirituality?
