Wherever You Go
Posted: May 30, 2018
1 John 4:13 says "God has given us his Spirit as proof that we live in Him and He in us."
and 2 Corinthians 3:17 says "For the Lord is the Spirit, wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom."
Ergo...if you are a Christ-follower, you carry freedom around with you wherever you go! This is both a relief and a challenge.
For starters, if you're battling an addiction or a stronghold, you might feel like you can only find victory in certain situations (at church, around certain people, when you're feeling good) but the truth is that His freedom is always with you!
The other side of the coin is that people around you who are not free might sense your freedom. Hopefully they'll be drawn to His Spirit through you, but they might be jealous or resentful. It's important to give all the glory to Him in order to let His Spirit do its work in them.
God, thank You for freedom!!! I want to show Your freedom to those around me, no matter where I am. Let Your light of hope and freedom shine through me! Amen!
