Freedom, freedom, freedom, everybody wants it. But what are you doing to secure your freedom? Most people have an obscure concept of what freedom really is, and what is actually necessary for it to transpire. And their hazy way of thinking will not liberate them unless they seek the Lord. Are you really free if your soul is in captivity? Take a moment and think about that. Foolish are those who try to secure their bodies and minds while they ignore their souls. Until we secure all the aspects mentioned above we will not truly be free. Blessed are those who seek God’s freedom and despised perpetual shame, and condemnation; for they shall see the kingdom of God.
There is only freedom when we seek and accept the Lord Jesus Christ as our redeemer of sin, the abolisher of death, the giver of life, and eternal freedom. Remember, it is only when you stand in awe with the Lord you will be free. Man don’t have the authority to grant you true freedom. They may like to think so. And many may convey that message. But foolish are those who walk in the flesh, who despised the Lord, who seek the glory of themselves, and of men. But wise are those who trust in the Lord, who have given their whole heart and soul to the Lord.
And I will walk in the liberty of the Lord; for I seek his commandments. Psalms 119:45
Freedom comes only from my God. It is Almighty God who can free nations in captivity. It is Almighty God who can loosen the strong hold on men. It is Almighty God who can remove the burden of death from upon men. Man can hold the body hostage. They can take your mind if you let them. But they can’t free your souls from bondage and condemnation.
God is the Master. It is he who can do all things. It is he who can loosen the shackles that have a heavy hold on you. It is he who can free your bodies, minds, and souls. It is he who can give you freedom. No one can held captive the word of God or those who live by his word. Surely, if you are servants of the Lord you shall be free.
Though your minds may wander loosely, though your bodies may move like the wind, until your souls are free from the claws of the devil you will never be free. And freedom as you so put it will only be a fiction of your imagination. So I ask the question again, are you really free if your souls are held in captivity?
Are you inheritance of the kingdom of God? Did you made that investment? Are your names written in the book of life in heaven? Seek the Lord; seek his glory; seek his kingdom; and seek his ultimate freedom. When you do these things, then you can be glad in the Lord, and rejoice; for you are now truly free. I say these things in meekness, as a child of God, which you also are. For if death should come upon me in the morning, I will yet live to see the glory of God.
May the Lord be upon you. May you not fall asleep on the Lord only to be risen in horror and condemnation. May you seek the freedom of Almighty God, so you may truly be free on judgement day. May God abide with you all. May his grace finds you, always. Blessed be the name of the Lord; for his mercies endure forever.
O merciful Father, free the hearts, and minds of those who struggle in darkness. Shine your light upon them dear God, so they may rejoice in your freedom. O heavenly Father, pour your blessings on them like the anointed rain from above, so they may glorify you in their freedom. Let them drink from the river of your pleasures; for truly with you there is freedom. May our blessed Lord be continually be praise; for he has poured out his abundant mercies upon us. O give thanks to the Lord of heaven; for his mercy endureth forever.
