1 Corinthians 2:12

Thursday, March 29, 2012

We have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, in order to know what has been freely given to us by God.


From my devotion today:

The liberty of Christ was ours at the moment we received Him as Savior. But if this internal gift is not released externally through obedience, we may never experience it.

when we receive Christ as Savior, we receive His liberating Spirit, but we must understand that the freedom never leaves the bounds of His Spirit. Therefore, our liberation is expressed as reality only in the places of our lives where the free Spirit of God is released.

We are free when, and only when, we allow Him to be in control.


This was a great one for me today after I spent time crying and being angry to God. Not with Him...TO Him! I needed to pour out my heart as I give the bullying situation to Him. So a sweet reminder this morning that I can only be free once I allow Him to be in control and today I am starting to feel some of that peace so I know I'll find it easier to listen and hear His soft voice guiding me.
