Day 186

FREEDOM

Now the Lord is the Spirit,
and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 3:17

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, freedom is what everyone wants, but few understand its meaning or responsibility. True freedom is not the absence of conflict, nor is it the release from authority. I came to bring you freedom: freedom from rules that would blind you to the truth; freedom from the past that would hold you its prisoner; and freedom to embrace the future and all I've created you to be. I am your freedom, and My Spirit will bring you the truth that frees you to love and forgive.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
We find true freedom when our past becomes a stepping-stone to a brighter tomorrow.  Only then can we find contentment in making today its own reward. Freedom for You came not from adherence to past laws, or in release from persecution, but from an attitude of love. Wherever You are, Lord, I find freedom.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Freedom is the privilege of pursuing and discovering God's best for our lives.
