It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1
Shame, guilt, regret, you name it, we have all felt it. A little whisper of doubt, an uncertain look from someone we don’t know, a terrible choice we made, an offensive action caused by someone else, most of these have been familiar to you and me.
Isn’t it always interesting how the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy? He doesn’t want us to experience the life that Jesus came to deliver. Consequently, he can tear down the best of us, even when we are trying to be intentional in God’s will and purpose for our life.
That is how the enemy works. He comes to take away the good that God is doing in our life. He comes to belittle us and steal any opportunity of freedom that Jesus gave so that we could be free. However, his power is by far limited in comparison to the power that we have in Christ. What if we chose to stand firm, remembering the price that was paid to live a life entirely unburdened by slavery?
Thank you, Jesus, for paying the ultimate price for freedom. May we stand firm in your sacrifice, holy and pleasing to your eyes. In your precious name, Amen.
Baring His Beauty,
