SET ME FREE LORD
What are the stumbling blocks in your life?Guilt, shame, freedom from the past, fear, worry, self pity, alcohol., drugs, pornography, same sex attraction, stealing, cheating, impure thoughts, defeat, meddling, control of your mouth, lack of self control, anger, lying , a mean spirit or something not on my list? You do not have to be burdened by things such as these.
Galatians 5:1 says "It was for freedom that Christ set us free. Stand firm then and do not allow yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." If you are weak in some area and you are aware of it and know it is dragging you away from the Lord ask Him for strength to run the other way. Amos 5:14 says "Seek good, not evil that you may live.Then the Lord God almighty will be with you just as you say he is."
There are many things the enemy Satan uses to keep us from the path God intended for his children to walk. We all have fallen but the good news is God can lift you back up and set you free. Do not let Satan lie to you if you have been tripped up and caught in sin because God can restore you and make you stronger than you were. Ask God to give you His strength to run the other way and not be tempted. Do not go places where you know you will be tempted. Turn off the TV, stay out of the theater, throw away the magazines, get new friends, whatever it takes. Most importantly try to find a Bible believing on fire church that shows Gods love to hurting people and get plugged in to gain strength and be set free.
John 8:36 says "If the son sets you free you are free indeed."
Romans 8:1 says "There is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus."
PRAYER: Lord God I need you in my life. I mess up and do things to take me away from you and I know Satan is thrilled as he starts condemning me and lying to me. I know you love and you forgive. Guide my steps Lord to stay on the path you have set or me. In Jesus name.Amen.
