Boy do I feel like God is speaking to me through my devotions these days as I’m in my battlefield….
Devotion snippets: But there is nothing wrong with being put in a box, and with not being able to acknowledge that we are developing different priorities or concerns or admit that our resources have run dry…. Maybe I was slowly becoming a prisoner of other people’s expectations instead of man liberated by divine promises….. We need to guard the gift of individual freedom so that we can continue to grow beyond the expectations of others.
What the word says…???? (Gal ch.5)
For 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…You are running a good race, who cut in you from obeying the truth?… You, my brothers and sisters, you are called to be free…..Love your neighbor as you love yourself….Live by what the Spirit says…. Since we live by the spirit, let us keep in step with the spirit.
How does it apply to my life…?????
Do not be burdened by my circumstances nor the things of this world. I am not a slave to my situation or things happening around me. A reminder that if I am running the race alongside Christ, all things will work out as long as I stay connected in listening to the voice and the prompting of the Holy Spirit and not the voice of confusion.
Stand firm!! we are fighting the good fight, we are fighting a battle that requires us to be fully present mentally and physically in order to win the race.
Listen when the Holy Spirit prompts and compels you to act.
