Daily Reading: Psalm 119:41-48
Many people in the United States know freedom but they do not understand it. A person can not know the real feeling of being free unless they have experienced a form of captivity. As believers in GOD the Christian faces a very real form of captivity. Many of our mouths seem to be locked behind bars of steel on a daily basis. We only open the doors to freedom of our beliefs when we are at church, bible study, or in a group of believers when we know it is safe to come out. We worry about what others will think about us standing and fighting for our LORD.
We expect GOD to come to our rescue when we are going through difficult storms, yet we keep him tied up inside us as we go about our daily routines. GOD wants to be in every part of our lives. GOD offers us freedom from the bindings of the world. GOD loves his children and wants us to be filled with the joy and freedom that we know by being a Christian. However, every form of freedom has a price. Christ paid that price on the cross but if we do not continue to fight for him then we are imprisoning GOD in our hearts.
Psalm 119:45 I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts.
