New day greetings, beloved family!!! I have not written for a couple of days because I was traveling and had very poor internet connection and while I had a great time on my trip, I am thankful to be reconnected with you all via technology!!! YAY!!! It is a gift of grace from our sweet Father, given through His love for us!!! It is the same love and grace that has set us all free from the wages of sin and reconciled us to Himself into a forever personal relationship as His royal kingdom children!!! We are truly blessed with all the glorious riches of His Kingdom!!!
It is a beautiful day to celebrate freedom through the help of my Father in all of life!!! Our Father is all about setting prisoners free!!! Sometimes there are good reasons why people are placed in physical correctional facilities for a time to help them learn and grow and be able to protect others as they do so and sometimes our Father works through them to help the prisoners around them as He did the Apostle Paul in Biblical days!!! Our Father’s heart is for there to be witnesses of Him in all places!!! I am a gal sooo thankful to be set free from burdens that have bound me in the past and has now made it possible for me to be free to serve my Father as I desire with the heart of passion that He has given to me to carry out His will, His plan and His purpose in my life out of a heart that wants to and thankful I get to, rather than having to because of formerly being bound to the Old Testament law of the Bible as our Father says:
“…there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus, the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so He condemned sin in sinful man, in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit.”
Romans 8:1-4 NIV
We who have faith in Christ’s sacrifice on the cross are now set free from having to perform in accordance with the OT Law in order to have acceptance by our Father. Wooohooo!!! We are free to live as His Spirit enables us with His grace as sufficient and at work to enable us:
“For it is God who works in us to will and act according to His good purpose.”
Philippians 2:13 NIV
Therefore, I am free to serve my Father as my heart desires to and feels honored and privileged to because of His great love for me!!! He is my confidence from all of life prior to being set free by His grace as the Psalmist wrote many years ago:
“For You are my hope, O Lord God, You are my confidence from my youth.”
Psalm 71:5 NIV
Jesus is also my confidence for the present and for all of my future!!! Forever secure in Jesus thru faith in His sacrifice for me!!! YYYEEESSS!!! I sooo love partnering with my sweet Father to join with Him in sharing the good news of Jesus with others so that they can be set free from the prison of the OT Law of performance for acceptance too!!! I don’t have to, I get to work with my Father and sooo love every minute of it!!! I love this song here!
Are you free in Christ Jesus from having to perform for His forever acceptance??? If the Son sets you free, you are free indeed!!!
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
John 3:16 NIV
