Sunshine’s Word of the Day
Good morning! Happy Friday to you all! I am so happy that it’s Friday. God restored my children’s health, clothed me, placed me in my right mind, blessed me with a super fantastic husband, gainfully employed, and the list goes on. I am too blessed to be stressed. The enemy tried to discourage me this week, but I gave him an uppercut and right hook with the Word of God, prayer, and fasting. So glad to be a child of God.
Psalm 119:45 (New International Version)
45 I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts.
Today’s Word is Freedom
Freedom is the exemption from external control or interference. It also is personal liberty as opposed to bondage or slavery. I like this definition, the right to enjoy all the privileges or special rights of citizenship.
When you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal savior than you are free. The external control from the world can’t hold you in chains because you are free by the blood of Jesus. The problem with many believers, much like with slavery, you have been in bondage so long that now that you are free you don’t realize it and so you don’t experience freedom. Someone is walking around operating as if they are still in bondage from the world.
EMBRACE YOUR FREEDOM. You are member of a royal priesthood. You are free to enjoy the rights and ALL of the privileges of being a child of God. It’s time to recognize that you are free and embrace your freedom.
You no longer have to live in fear, you no longer have to accept mediocrity. You no longer have to live a bond life headed for destruction. YOU ARE FREE! Do you realize that you have the freedom to pray, fast, read the Word of God, worship, attend church, and so much more without someone trying to kill you over it. That fact alone is reason enough to embrace your freedom.
Whenever you hear or see the word Freedom, think of ways you can embrace your freedom as a child of God. Inform people around you who are saved but don’t realize that they are free, that they are in fact free.
ENJOY YOUR FREEDOM! I am so glad that I am Free. Freedom reigns in this place! Have a blessed Friday and a wonderful weekend!
