A caged bird sings, because the song is deep inside him. The song bellows out because despite the foreign environment, singing is a natural, instinctive display of purpose. You are who you are, no matter where you are.
What I have made you to be, you are and the environment, permissions of man or your feelings about do not matter. You will produce, at MY direction because I AM God, you cannot be snatched from MY authoritative hands.
This is the enemies ploy to steal your identity, to steal your authority and to steal your aspirations. When he convinces you to pursue a persona, that is contrary to MY instructions, he uses you against your own purpose.
You must be smarter, wiser and more strategic, than the one who stands against you. With no regard of what you see and how you feel, your OMEGA sits on the throne and MY word will be fulfilled, inside of you.
I Peter 1:3-5
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, and we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay. And through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation, which is ready to be revealed on the last day for all to see.
