The Freedom of Freedom



Oh it was a life of slavery~

A life that they wanted to be delivered from.

BUT when they got what they wanted

they forgot

as they grumbled & complained

when they were hungry.

BUT GOD sent quail & MANNA~

BUT GOD

still wasn't enough

because they couldn't even listen to HIS direction

to only gather enough for a day

and to trust HIM for tomorrow's supply.

BUT impatience brewed

because doubt brewed

as their own thoughts overcame them~

What if HE doesn't supply our needs? We will starve.

Hmm..

Maybe they were repeating the words of

the first woman

who had so much plenty,

yet had to eat the one thing that she was asked by HIM not to eat,

yet she ate it anyway

and we know how that story ends

as we are living in it now.

Oh the VALLEY OF DOUBT

that GOD may not show up

&

part the sea of fear that is overwhelmingly

standing before us.

BUT GOD

has called us all out of

FEAR

&

ANXIETY

&

WORRY

the moment

HE called us out of slavery~

"The SPIRIT you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again;

rather, the SPIRIT you received brought about your adoption to sonship.

And by HIM we cry,“ABBA, FATHER(Romans 8:15)

Just as HE called them out of slavery

and was always on their team to take them to the

PROMISED LAND

as HE is the same GOD of the OLD TESTAMENT as HE is of THE NEW TESTAMENT

as we are ever so

FREE

because

"You're the GOD who fights for me

LORD of every victory

Hallelujah, Hallelujah"

(from the song "EGYPT", listen below)
