The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up(heal) the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners... IS 61:1
FREEDOM is an amazing power. To realize that you have been set free after being in any type of bondage is exhilarating. The Bible tells us that once Jesus sets us free from sin, we are completely free! So why is there so much turmoil and why do people keep fighting each other?
Perhaps its because some folks use freedom as a license to do what they please. True freedom is not being able to do what you want, its living the way that the Lord wants you to live. We are to stand firm in that freedom and not allow ourselves to get all tangled up with the very things that we were released from. Don't revisit the past. Live in the present and walk into your future. It's our responsibility to use our freedom to set others free. Preach GOOD news. Heal those with broken hearts. Proclaim freedom and live it in front of those in your circle of influence. The year of God's favor is now!
As you prepare to celebrate the freedom of our nation, take a moment and thank the Lord that sin no longer has a hold on you. You know the truth...and that truth has set you free! Now tell someone else about that!
