There is a great and marvelous freedom coming to My body, a freedom that is received to the degree that the truth is embraced. If your heart seeks freedom, you must be ready to see the truth. Freedom comes to those who worship in Spirit and in truth. No matter how much you may seek to walk in My Spirit and worship Me in Spirit, if you reject the truth in any measure — the truth about yourself, your character, your maturity, your world — you will be hindered.
My Spirit seeks truth, settles upon truth, and dwells in truth. In order for My people to grow into maturity, everyone must recognize where he or she is yet immature. Ah, such truth can be painful! But the truth is only painful to the extent that pride is operating in your life. Seek to uncover all areas of pride, and soon you will be one who not only welcomes the truth, but runs toward it. Those who run in that freedom are the ones who will share in My delight as they advance rapidly toward the goal and do not fall behind My Spirit.
The wind of My Spirit blows where it wills. You do not know where it comes from or where it is going, but you will always be in step with it as you dwell in truth. My Spirit cannot dwell in any falsehood. So, I ask you: do you want to move in the great freedom that is coming?
“Yet a time is coming, and has now come, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in Spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks. God is Spirit, and His worshippers must worship in Spirit and truth.” (John 4:23-24, NIV)
“I run in the path of Your commands, for You have set my heart free.” (Psalm 119:32, NIV)
