It is for freedom

It is for FREEDOM the Christ has set us FREE; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery.     Galatians 5:1

This has been stirring in my heart for the past year and I feel like the Lord is constantly teaching me about it.

It means….

I am not in bondage from my sin anymore.

I can enjoy this time of life, learning and growing.

I can see and go out for new experiences.

I can learn to love and receive love.

I can dream for the future and not see any limits.

I can truly taste and see that the Lord is good.

I have freedom to create.

I can enjoy things.

I can bless and be blessed by people I cherish.

I can trust.

I can live in the joy that Jesus offers.

I can live, free from the fear that the enemy constantly tries to throw at me.

I am FREE. The enemy doesn’t have hold of me anymore. 

This is not always easy for me to believe and live in. My natural tendency is to worry and when my day isn’t going the way I thought it should, I’m quick to forget this truth.

My prayer is that Jesus would always remind me that I am FREE and that’s exactly the way He wants it.

 

Does my heart really believe this? How does my life reflect the fact that I am FREE?
