Don’t beleive the enemies lies that you have no choice or power to say NO to old habits, old thought patterns, old temptations, or old addictions. That you have no hope of changing, growing, transforming.
When the Son sets you free, you are free. You are free from the power of sin and it is not your master anymore.
So then why does it take so long to learn how to live in this freedom? Why the struggle?
It is because while your spirit has been released from the contract of sin and is legally free, your flesh has been well trained by it’s former slavery. The flesh has the old habits, temptations, and thought patterns grooved into it thru experience and years of practice.
It takes time, experience and perseverance to create the new grooves of freedom.
Just as a bird is made to fly, a child of God is made to live in freedom.
However, it is up to you to claim your freedom and learn to walk in it.
It is up to you to learn how to fly with the wings of freedom God has already given you.
“So if the Son liberates you [makes you free men], then you are really and unquestionably free”. John 8:36 AMP
What old lies are sapping your strength?
What old habits need to be left behind?
What new freedom do you long to live in?
Today is a good day to start (or restart) learning to live in freedom…unquestionably.
May your mind be clear, your heart encouraged and your determination to live in the freedom that has been bought for you by the blood of Jesus be fierce in you today.
