Several years ago I went through a transformation. I had decided that it was time for me to break some chains and get rid of any lies that I was believing. There were some things that were revealed that I wasn’t expecting, it was my beliefs about the church.
When I was a child, church was very formal. You put on your best suit or dress, polish your shoes, and present yourself perfect before all who would see you. It had become something different than its purpose, and that was, and still is, to worship Jesus. He had become secondary, and not first and foremost, it was human tradition. It was ridged and formal, and God forbid if you lifted your hands in holy submission to Jesus! There were many other legalistic traditions that I had to break free from in order for me to become what God had intended.
Today, quiet yourself, and ask God what lies you are believing. Then listen closely for His answer. For me, the answer usually comes before I get the question out of my mouth. You will become free from human tradition, and begin to care only about what God thinks.
See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. Colossians 2:8
