When God Sets You Free

78
There is something about freedom. It looks good, it tastes good, and it feels good, and any time I experience it I assume it will go on forever. But when it comes to spiritual freedom garnered through faith in Jesus Christ, I have seen time and again that freedom comes with a clear responsibility on my part. As the Bible says, I have to “stand fast” in the freedom gained through Christ.

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” Gal. 5:1 KJV

What does this mean? For me, it means that when I am freed from any bondage through faith in Christ that I have to stand strong in the victory I find in Him. When the devil tries to lure me back into the bondage from which I have been delivered, I have to study the Word of God, use my scriptures, cast down imaginations, praise the Lord, and most importantly follow His specific instructions to hold onto the victory I have received.

I have very recently been delivered from a lifelong spirit of fear. The Lord showed me in prayer with a dear sister in Christ that I have let fear rule and reign in my life for so very long that most of the time I did not even recognize its presence. I simply reacted to it, making poor decisions, hurting God’s Creation, hurting myself, and falling short of God’s best for my life. When I was delivered from fear, I immediately celebrated the phenomenal feeling of freedom from that foul spirit that I had allowed to make a mess of so much of my life.

Within hours, the spirit fear was back at my front door threatening to come raging back in. God tells us to “stand fast” because He is well aware that the devil is not at all pleased when his victims find their freedom in Christ and walk away from him to liberty in Christ.

Remember the children of Israel when they were released from bondage in Egypt? Pharaoh did not want them to be set free! On top of an enemy that did not want to let them go, the people were deeply troubled by leaving their comfort zone. They fell into fear and complaining. The enemy can use a host of tactics to try to draw people back into his camp. I know this from the Bible, and I know this from my own life.

When God sets you free, STAND FAST. Hold onto Him, press into Him, follow Him, dig deep into His Word, plant your feet and heart soundly in the Body of Christ, praise the Lord for your newfound freedom, and follow Him wherever He takes you. Most importantly, develop your personal, intimate relationship with Him.

    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of
    a good platform.

    loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
