Be free from him, her, and everybody else! Don’t care about anyone else’s agenda but God’s
We were in church singing “No more shackles, no more chains, no more bondage, I am freeeee, yeah” and I got to thinking. What am I free from? I know that I am free from death because of Christs sacrifice. I know that I am free in Christ, but what else? There had to be more. Then it hit me; I’m free from people.
John 8:31 says; If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” When I pondered this I though about how from time to time how people effect the things we do on this earth, and sometimes the things we do for Christ. Being free from people, what they have to say about us, and their jealousy’s and insecurities truly make us FREE to follow Christ in the things he has for us.
Think about all the times you may have had a taste of alcohol becuase of peer pressure, or because “everyone is doing it”. Or the time you may have went with the crowd on certain things because you didn’t want to be the odd man out. Being FREE from people places you in a mindset where you do things solely to please God and not to please or appease man.
When we are totally submitted to Christ and his will, we are free from people. Job 22:21 states “Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way prosperity will come to you” Do you know why prosperity comes if you submit to him? because when you obey God’s word it is a protection and a grace there. God’s word is NOT created to keep you from having fun, in fact it is created so that you can enjoy your life in peace, and avoid the pitfalls of sin and death.
Today, think about an area in your life that is not submitted to Christ, i.e your relationships, marriage, television, your eating habits, who you hang around. Christ Wants to be involved in each and every area of your life, so that he can bring total restoration, healing, prosperity and joy. Trust God’s way, submit to his word, and you will experience TRUE freedom in him.
