With one more small area to rebuild on our retaining wall, we went to work together last evening. The very last post to replace didn’t come out with ease. It was the worst. We could get it pulled up but not out. Finally, Danny tore into the dirt behind it and found a large piece of cement holding securely. Once he got that removed, we were sure it would come out.
But no. After doing some more digging and finding another area of cement holding that small piece of post in place, it finally came free. I was ready to give up and forget about it till tomorrow. LOL But not Danny, he kept working. This morning I’m glad we don’t have to face that task again.
Oh beloved, what’s holding you from freedom? Do you realize that your freedom has already been taken care of? You don’t have to work and struggle, but you do have to persevere. Through Christ, all you need to live freely and without hindrance has been purchased and finished. It’s the working through your faith that will let you find what has been ordained for you. Don’t give up now. Don’t give in to the notion that you can’t change. In Christ, you are a changed person when you are born again. The old person is dead.
The new life has been handed to you. It’s never too late to live a life of real freedom. You are alive this day and that’s your signal that God has a plan for you to enter into His perfect life of rest, joy, liberty and more! Even if you are reading this and you have real problems, strongholds, He is declaring you to be free! Man might tell you that it’s hopeless. But God says freedom! He paid your debts, He defeated your enemy, and He has a call on your life that will give you new insights for living! You aren’t the sum of your past, nor are you bound in the mud by them. Take up the weapons of spiritual armor for yourself – and thank the Lord for your being loosed to live without boundaries or snares!
God loves you and He’s for you. For you – to free you, bless you, enrich your life and set you on high with Him! Run to the Lord this morning and thank Him and ask Him to show you the Truth. And then, beloved, live in the Light of His Wonderful Choices for your life!
Galatians 5:1 It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.
2 Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
Romans 6:6 We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin.
