I have been reflecting on freedom today as it is Memorial Day weekend in the United States of America. Memorial Day is an American holiday observed on the last Monday of May that is in honor of men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.
Many have sacrificed much to protect the freedoms that we have in our Country. Our Father understands war!!! As we know from the Bible and historical evidence, He Himself left His heavenly throne and came to this earth in the man Jesus and while here on earthly mission to take upon Himself all the sins of all people on a cross, He personally sacrificed much in His short life here to set all who believe in Him free from sin and the wages of sin brought upon His people in the Garden of Eden by the evil one Satan. Our Father’s Word tells us this:
“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”
I give thanks to Jesus for His sacrifice for us all and I am also thankful to all those who have sacrificed for my freedoms in life!!! In reflection, I want to share with you that one of the biggest wars that we fight in this world is with the enemy of Satan and the battlefield the war takes place on is our minds!!! Jesus has already won our eternal life victory over the enemy on the cross, but in the here and now, if Satan can convince us of his lies and what is contrary to our Father’s truth, then he is able to rob us of truth, peace, freedom and victory walking in this life thru Christ!!! Oh let us not let him take us there, dear saints!!! Let us always fight the good fight just as Jesus did when He walked this earth with mission and purpose!!! One of the things that Jesus did was He kept His relationship strong with His Father thru prayer and thru taking in of our Father’s Word from a young age!!! Of Him as a young boy, it is written:
“He grew in wisdom and stature and in the favor of God and men.”
When we continue to study our Father’s Word and stay close to Him for strength and power of His Holy Spirit, we are able to realize divine life as He says:
“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”
2 Corinthians 10:5
The key to peace in all of life is unity in Christ Jesus!!! He is the Ruler of the Universe, the Prince of Peace and His heavenly kingdom is going to be ushered in victoriously in full soon!!! Until then, let us help as many as possible win the good fight over the enemy of this world by sharing the good news of Christ’s kingdom and doing what each one of us can to live at peace with all people as far as it concerns us each as individuals!!! Oh there is nothing like the blessed peace of Jesus that transcends all understanding!!! Jesus came into this world that our joy would be complete and in keeping our eyes fixed on Him, His promise to us is sweet peace:
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
If there is a place in your heart that is troubled today, dear one, our Father tells us “do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)
Thru prayer, trusting our Father to act and pursuing Godly wisdom in how He would have each of us act is a divine formula for realizing peace, victory and freedom from the enemy in life!!! HOOORAH!!! LET’S GO FOR ALL OF THAT AS KINGDOM FAMILY!!!
Here is a song to bring us peace that we can reflect upon in closing, knowing that our God is the greatest victor forever and is for us of faith!!! Have a divine day wherever you are and sisterly love to you!!! YYYEEESSS WE CAN STAY FREE IN JESUS!!! WOOOHOOO!!! PEACE AND FREEDOM TO YOU IS MY HEART FOR YOU WHEREVER YOU ARE!!!
