October 13, 2014 NO OTHER FREEDOM
Freedom, real freedom, is amazing. To be able to go and live where we want. To be able to live a worry-free life. To be able to have peace and freedom is just an amazing feeling. However, freedom doesn’t mean we can do whatever we want. There will always be consequences. That is why we have God’s commandments. That is why we need to devote ourselves to Him and to His commandments. Then we will be truly free. And there is no other freedom like the freedom God can give.
Psalm 119:45 “I will walk in freedom, for I have devoted myself to your commandments.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, we thank You for the freedom You provide when we are obedient to Your commandments. It is like no other freedom. We want to hold true to what You tell us and be obedient to You today. We know when we obey You, we are free because nothing any man can do will harm us. When we choose to believe in You and obey, we can walk in freedom. And we thank You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Freedom with God is better than any other freedom we could ever experience.
God wants us to choose the freedom He can give us over any freedom this world offers.
We are blessed with many freedoms but choosing to be devoted to God is the best freedom ever.
God gives freedom like no other.
When we accept the invitation to follow Jesus and allow the Holy Spirit to live in us, we are finally free.
2 Corinthians 3:17 “For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” (NLT)
Focus: Devotion to God is a choice and when we choose it, He will set us free.
