Complete Peace

So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law.
Galatians 5:1
 

Why do so many Christians live as though they are still in bondage? For one thing, we often rebel against our Master, refusing to obey Him and clinging to our old lives. We hold on to the sins that once bound us to Satan as our master. Because our new nature still lives in the old fleshly nature, we are still drawn to sin. In Romans 6, Paul explains that we are all slaves. We are either slaves to sin or slaves to righteousness. Those who are slaves to sin cannot free themselves from it, but once we are freed from the penalty and power of sin through the cross, we become a different kind of slave, and in that slavery we find complete peace and true freedom.

Prayer for the day:

Lord, You are my rock, and with Your help, I will establish my life on Your firm foundation. Thank you for hearing my prayer and pulling me out of this mess. Thank you for rescuing me from the sinking sand and showing me Your wonderful ways, steadfast love and unending power. Forgive me for my decisions, actions, and attitudes that got me to this mess. Thank you for truly setting me free and keeping me from ever being entangled again with any yoke of bondages. I have entered into Your blessed rest by trusting in You. I believe You will restore what the thieves had stolen all these years and pour Your abundantly blessings upon my family, my relationships, my work and my ministry. In Jesus' glorious name, Amen.
