Free

As Pharaoh drew near, the sons of Israel looked, and behold, the Egyptians were marching after them, and they became very frightened; so the sons of Israel cried out to the Lord. Then they said to Moses, “Is it because there were no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why have you dealt with us in this way,  bringing us out of Egypt? Is this not the word that we spoke to you in Egypt, saying, ‘Leave us alone that we may serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the         Egyptians than to die in the wilderness.” — Exodus 14:10-12

Often times we can’t see past our circumstances to see that God has our future covered. We want to run back to the familiar even though God has a better life planned for us. We have a choice (again with the choices) — trust God with your life or stay in bondage, slavery where you are.

Jesus offers a way out. He offers freedom right where you are. Are you ready to be free from the bondage of sin and the overwhelming circumstances you’re in? Come to Him. He is waiting.

Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. — Matthew 11:28

So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never yet been enslaved to anyone; how is it that You say, ‘You will become free’?”

Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son does remain forever. So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. — John 8:31-36

Continually seeking Him,

Sharon
