I want to encourage you today with THIS from Kenneth E. Hagin's "Faith Food":

A Great Plan
"Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, 'Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree'" (Gal. 3:13). 

Part of the inheritance that Colossians 1:12-14 tells us we should be giving thanks to the Father for is "...redemption through his blood..." (v. 14). 

What are we redeemed from? From the curse of the law. And what is the curse of the law? The only way to find out, is to go to the law and see what it says the curse is. The term "the law," as found in the New Testament, refers to the first five books of the Bible, the Pentateuch. Reading there, we find that the curse, or punishment, for breaking God's law is threefold: 

1. Spiritual death (Gen. 2:17

2. Poverty (Deut. 28:15-68

3. Sickness (Deut. 28:15-68

Galatians 3:13 tells us that Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, and Colossians 1:12-14 tells us to thank God for our redemption! We are to thank the Father for this great plan of redemption which He planned and sent the Lord Jesus Christ to consummate! 

Confession: Thank You, Father, for Your great plan of redemption which You planned and sent the Lord Jesus Christ to consummate! Thank You because I am redeemed from death! Thank You because I am redeemed from poverty! Thank You because I am redeemed from sickness! Thank You, Father! 
If you and I don't KNOW what we have IN HIM, we will be unable to thank Him for it! 2 Timothy 2:15 instructs us to do this:

15 Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth. AMP

We are HERE, rather than in Heaven with our Father, because WE have a tremendous job to do! It is the same job that Jesus had! Look at Luke 19:10:

10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost. AMP

THAT is to be our #1 priority, after loving HIM with all of our being(Luke 10:27)! The only way to do this is to free ourselves from the cares and bondage of this world! Here is how to go about that! John 8:31-32:

31 So Jesus said to those Jews who had believed in Him, If you abide in My word [hold fast to My teachings and live in accordance with them], you are truly My disciples. 32 And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free. AMP

AMEN! So, go get yourself TRULY free and let's get out there and get this job done! Soon and very soon, we are going to see OUR King (Jesus) and we want to hear "Well done"! Here is Hillsong with "Beneath The Waters (I Will Rise)":

Shalom in Him!
