The Lord secures justice for the oppressed,
gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets captives free. (Ps 146:7)
The Lord is a good, gracious, and loving God.
He gives His people continuously because He loves us so much.
One of the things we desire — and treasure — more than anything is our freedom. In our country, we extol the fact that we based our democracy upon freedom.
We want to be free.
We claim to be free.
Yet, we so easily enslave ourselves to sin.
How can that be?
That is no doing of the Lord. It is our own doing that gets us into trouble.
The Lord wants to set us free today.
FAITH ACTION: Is there a person, place, or thing that has us enslaved? Is there someone or something that we deem to have more merit than God, Himself? If so, cast it aside, let God into your life, and truly be free this day!
