Freedom Is for You

By Betty Robison Published on February 5, 2015

BETTY ROBISON — The Lord gives freedom to the prisoners. Psalm 146:7

Have you ever felt insecure? Been afraid to fail? Felt plain and ordinary when others around you seem to be shining stars? You have to “do” in order to be someone? Don’t measure up to others? You’re ugly, invisible or inadequate?

If any of these secret thoughts apply to you, I want you to know that you’re not alone. But it can certainly feel that way. I know, because I have struggled personally with every single one of those things.

I’m here to tell you that Jesus took me from the shackles of fear to true freedom. Although the journey took me many years, and it’s not entirely over yet (because He is continually refining me), I can now boldly say that I finally have discovered the “good news”: God loves us and accepts us just as we are, right now.

Free to be the unique persons He has created us to be. And, most of all, free to pursue, without hindrance, the kind of loving relationship He longs to have with us as His children.

So today, choose to trust and believe the Lord for your freedom. Ask Him to begin to help you break free from fear and insecurity or whatever may be holding you back. He wants to give you freedom in every area of your life!

Further Study: 2 Corinthians 3:17; John 8:36; Galatians 5:1

Take action: Declare today: Jesus, I receive Your freedom in my life. I receive Your grace and mercy. Fear has no place here. You are my security and my confidence. Your Word is life to my body, soul and spirit.
