Unavailable – engaged, busy, occupied or out of stock
When you are engaged to someone that means you are unavailable to others
When you are busy that means you are unavailable
Available for one will result in being unavailable to other
James 4:7-8 “Submit to God and resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you…”
You determine nearness of God toward you For resisting to be successful it needs to follow submitting It’s not after submission but after resistance that devil will flee Draw near to the devil and hell will draw near to you Resist God and He will flee from you
Galatians 6:14 “But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me and I to the world.”
The world has nothing to offer to me I have nothing to offer to the world
Being sold out to Christ will result in you wanting nothing that the world has to offer
Being sold out to Christ will result in you being unavailable to the world
John 14:30-31 “I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me. But that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father gave Me commandment, so I do. Arise, let us go from here.”
Devil-the consumer is always coming to buy what is offered Those who buy you have power over you Your devotion needs to be out of stock The only way to keep your heart from the devil is make yourself unavailable to him The only way to make yourself unavailable to him is to make yourself available to God
Matthew 10:39 “He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it”
Anything that is not surrendered will be wasted You are available to Satan if you are unavailable to Me The only way to have the life of Christ is to surrender yours Surrender makes room for Jesus’ life Christianity will not work for those who are not surrendered totally
Matthew 10:38 “He who doesn’t take his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me”
You are not worthy of Jesus until He is your everything The level of your devotion equals to the price you place on Him The level of His dedication equals to the price He placed on you He is worthy of you because you were His all
Ephesians 5:25 “Husbands love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her”
Our love toward Jesus cannot be lesser then bride’s love toward her bridegroom The Bridegroom is saying: “My bride doesn’t love Me” “She is not interested in Me” “She is indifferent toward Me” “She doesn’t care to hear from Me” “She can easily live without Me” “She is embarrassed of Me” “She doesn’t love My presence, prefers presence of others more then Mine” “She flirts with other lovers” Love is stronger then death, rivers cannot quench it, cannot be bought…is that true about My Bride? We provoke Him to jealousy when He is not our everything Satan doesn’t care if you flirt with God but deeply cares if you flirt with Satan I don’t care if Mariana flirts with someone but Ilya does
Matthew 11:29 “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me…”
Jesus invites us to be equally yoked with Him Captives cry out for deliverance but when will delivered cry out for captivity
