“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” Galatians 5:1 NIV
Today, I declare my freedom. I have freedom that only Jesus Christ can give. I am free to love, to have joy in any situation, to praise Him and to receive His peace. I am no longer bound by fear and worry. The chains of depression, anger and confusion have been broken.
I praise God for his freedom. He has made me into a new creation with a new heart, cleansed of my sins. He has rescued me from an eternal sentence of death and destruction and he has replaced it with the gift of eternal life with him.
Is freedom easy? No, it never is, but the Lord has given me a more than adequate defense. He has given me armor that I must put on everyday because my freedom is constantly being tested. I am fully armed with the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, shoes of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit.
Stand firm my sisters and brothers. Put on your armor and declare your freedom today.
“You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature, rather, serve one another in love.” Galatians 5:13 NIV
