As I was preparing to write, one word dropped so strongly into my spirit.
And so, today, I declare freedom over you!
Freedom over your life.
Freedom over your circumstances.
Freedom over your thoughts and will and emotions.
Freedom to live.
Freedom to love.
Freedom to laugh and dance and sing.
Freedom to rest.
Freedom to rejoice.
Freedom to be. To be who God has created you to be.
Freedom to embrace your journey: Your journey of grace. Your journey of growth. Your journey of faith.
In all its beauty. In all its simplicity.
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. from Galatians 5:1 NIV
I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn't confide in his slaves. Now you are My friends, since I have told you everything the Father told Me. You didn't choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using My name. This is My command: Love each other. John 15:15-17 NLT
A slave does not stay with a family forever, but a son belongs to the family forever. So if the Son makes you free, you will be truly free. John 8:35-36 NCV
