Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2 Corinthians 3:17
Wash, rinse, repeat. There are times in our life of faith that feel so predictable it is exhausting. There are periods of days/months/years where we are in a cycle of doing a certain thing we shouldn’t do or not doing that certain thing we know we should. It’s in times like these that being trapped in the bondage of sin really hits home. We feel trapped. It seems hopeless. Freedom seems impossible.
Yet it isn’t. When trapped in a sin loop it is easy to have tunnel vision and ignore (or forget) all the areas of our lives that have experienced freedom, the habits and attitudes that you have slowly but surely (or maybe even overnight) shed by experiencing the love and grace of God.
As followers of Jesus, the Spirit of the Lord is within us. That Spirit is working on us right now, remaking us, moment by moment refining us, breaking the chains of sin and encouraging us to embrace the freedom that has been extended to us. Today, remember those times when God has given you freedom before and ask God to help you trust as God leads you to freedom again.
