Freedom (Galatians 5:1)

(Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading – Deuteronomy 25-27 & Galatians 5)

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.  Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”  Galatians 5:1

What lessons are there for me from this Scripture?

I am no longer a slave to my circumstances.  I belong to Christ.  He is my life.

The circumstances of my life are in His hands.  I am not in control.  My goal is to be in His will.

For there I will find peace.  I will not have peace trying to get my own way.  My dependence must be on Him.  I must live step-by-step attached to Him.  Apart from Him I can do nothing of spiritual value.

To allow my circumstances to control me is to deny God that opportunity.  I must never let that happen.  I must react to closed doors and adversity with a thankful heart because I face either or both in His strength.

He knows what is best for me.  He loves me.  I desperately yearn for His guidance.  I must not be burdened by the circumstances of this world.
