I would be lying if I told you that it’s a “breeze” not to grasp onto things we’ve already let go of. I am so good at saying I’m done being defined by some sin or that I am no longer under the management of myself but then the next day I go back on that statement. It’s so stupid.
I believe that we all have or will struggle with leaving things at the cross for the Lord to hold and fix.
But please hear me when I say that you need to do everything in your power to keep the things you’ve surrendered to God, in the hands of God.
You were never created to carry this heavy load alone. Truthfully you were not created to carry this load at all. The only one powerful enough to carry your load is Christ himself.
I wonder why freedom so hard to accept. Christ died for me and has given me freedom yet I still think that being enslaved by things is okay. I want to encourage you today and let you know that you can be free, you can overcome the things holding you back, and you can live a life in freedom.
“For you, brethren, were indeed called to freedom and have been called through love to serve one another.” -Galatians 5:13
I love how the word “called” is used in Galatians 5:13. My goal in life is to fearlessly accept the call Christ has placed on my life. But what if the call He has placed on my life is to live in freedom?
Truthfully, that is a huge call. Living free means not allowing this world to overtake you and stress you out. Freedom means the ability to move and live without fear of what may happen.
I believe that the Lord is calling all of us to freedom. He so desires for us to live a life that is free of worry and fear. When our life mirrors that, we then can fully fall into the arms of the one true God.
Freedom is not easy to find… when you are looking in the wrong places. Open your Bible and spend sometime in prayer asking the Lord to give you lasting freedom from the things you are enslaved by. I can guarantee you will find the freedom you desire.
