Refresher Course - Freedom

Refresher Course – Freedom

“Freedom is nothing else but a chance to be better.” Albert Camus

My first two posts on my refresher course down by the Hudson River were just a taste of the time spent in solitude seeking the Father’s heart. The beauty of all that time spent with Him was…freedom

One morning I wrote this down…

To live free is to understand how Jesus lived. In all his dealings with humanity, Jesus never let success or opposition have power over him. The trappings of success and opposition share a common hook, both will try to latch on and define who we are. Jesus lived free because he remained true to he was. Nothing changed his message, his purpose, his character or his identity. He remained true and he remained free.

Putting my pen down, I thought out loud…

Man…I want that.

Father God said….

You already have it…

And He brought to my memory this verse…

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1

The Father continued speaking to my heart…

Your first step is to believe IT is possible…that you can be free…because you already have been set free. With me ALL things are possible…stop believing in your doubts or fears…believe in ME.

ME: Wow…really?

Yes…you are free…live that way.

The past few weeks I have discovered more freedom than I could imagine. The absolute coolest thing has been the revelation that I still have more to experience. As I center myself in the identity of being His son I find that freedom already living inside of me.

You know…it’s the same message for you. You are a set free child of God and you don’t have to prove anything to anybody. With Him you are unstoppable, more than a conqueror and absolutely victorious. Believe the Father, he knows the person you are and the person he is making you into…a free one.

Blessings,
Jay
