Everyone experiences times when life becomes tough. Physical illness, emotional instability, the death of a loved one, financial troubles, and other life’s terms are typical human circumstances. No one can avoid the problems created by Adam and Eve’s great fall from God’s grace.
Are you experiencing problems today?
I understand how to suffer the pains of trials. It isn’t easy applying faith in troublesome times. In my times of tribulations, I have to remind myself to keep my focus on Christ and devote myself to God’s word. When I stay willing to rely on Christ during the storms of life, then God shows me His Spirit of Freedom. Waiting on God’s grace is worth it because the peace from receiving His compassion is astonishing.
The Greatest Freedom
The biggest freedom known to humanity is God. God’s love for humans is remarkable! Our Father wants to give us eternal life, free from too much sin and full of spiritual life. Every time we follow Christ we are liberated (redeemed) from sin and become worthy to glorify God.
Don’t give up in times of distress because Christ will free you from your woes and bless you with God’s grace. Remember, on the other side of tribulations is Christ’s peace where serenity is abundant. God always frees the faithful.
The Apostle Paul shows us the value of God’s freedom:
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. (2 Corinthians 3:17)
Have you found God’s Spirit of Freedom?
