Todays verse was,
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 3:17 –
Very appropriate for July 4, 2018 today!
Since today here in the USA is Independence Day. God wants us to be liberated to from all sins that hold us back from our truest potentials as well as just faulty beliefs and mindsets that keep us hostage. When we come to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we are made free of sin and the penalty of sin, we receive forgiveness and new life. However, just because we have been granted freedom does not mean it wont be challenged. There is still the pull of our bodies and faulty mindsets that have been with us often all our lives. We still need to fight against these and defend what He has rightfully purchased for us, Freedom! The Enemy, and the sinful nature wants to still trip us but through Christ we have been given Hos Spirit to indwell us and enable us to resist and not be overcome! We have His Word, containing the spiritual declaration of independence, the Christian constitution so to speak! We have been given all we need to overcome! We also have freedom to approach God with bold confidence because of Christ Jesus!
Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (Hebrews 4:16 -)
Happy Independence Day Everyone!
