Never Take for Granted the Cost of Freedom

I called upon the Lord in distress: the Lord answered me, and set me in a large place.
The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? (Psalm 118:5-6)

I am free from failure for “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me’   (Philippians 4:13).
I am free from want for “my God shall supply all my need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).
I am free from fear for “God hath not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (II Timothy 1:7).
I am free from doubt for “God hath given to every man the measure of faith” (Romans 12:3).
I am free from weakness for “ the Lord is the strength of my life”: (Psalm 27:1). and “the people that know their God shall be strong and do exploits” (Daniel 11:32).
I am free from defeat “for God always causeth me to triumph in Christ Jesus” (II Corinthians 2:14).
I am free from Ignorance, “for Christ Jesus is made unto me wisdom from God” (I Corinthians 1:30).
I am free from bondage “for where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty” (II Corinthians 3:17).
I am free from condemnation, “for there is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. (Romans 8:1).  Author Unknown

If we don’t know Jesus Christ, we will never know true freedom and peace. There is a price to pay for freedom, but Jesus Christ paid that price at Calvary and He offers us eternal life.

There is a price to pay for freedom. All wars are senseless, but is there not a cause to fight? Who is willing to stand up for Truth? This is not a time to take a back seat and live in fear. Jesus is on the throne and I can be confident that we win.

We are a nation that desperately needs to return to the Lord. As we come closer to the Lord’s return, let’s do the right thing and live for God. “Trust in the Lord and lean not to your own understanding.” If you are waiting for the best time to stand for this truth, that time is now, while we are still free to worship.

About gracemorganwriter

What is a writer? Someone who writes. For me, writing means to observe the world in a fresh way; it gives us encouragement when we are struggling to follow the path, and hope that we can keep pressing towards the mark. Writing gives us grace for the journey, and shines light into the darkened places of our soul.
