Liberty

 1 Corinthians 3:17

 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty [emancipation from bondage, true freedom]. Amplified

IMG_0917How wonderful to have a fullness of the liberty Jesus has purchased on the Cross for us, emancipation from bondage, true freedom, is how the Amplified bible expands liberty to mean while one of its definitions in the English dictionary is: “freedom from control, interference, obligation, restriction, hampering conditions, etc.; power or right of doing, thinking, speaking, etc., according to choice.” So it comes down to a freedom of choice.What if a pastor in a church gives you some counsel that you have not obeyed? It is quite common to be quoted Hebrews 13:17 when you disagree with their ideas and opinions about your path in Christ Jesus. How do you maintain the peace of God in such circumstances and who is right – do we obey what we hear from God directly from our own personal relationship with the Father or the voices of those that have authority in the world? Counsel from a wise source will always bring peace and a sense of a burden lifting from you, counsel that is based in the ideas or will of man will always seem to oppress. Always be open and honest with your leader, simple gentle humble sharing that you have been guided in a different direction than the one they have spoken, do not leave room for a reply, i.e. change the subject straight away and then walk away from them. You need to close the door on the spoken word quickly lest it become a directional curse and if you know how to stop people from cursing you in prayer to do what they perceive to be Gods will, then please feel free to comment that we all could use your wisdom that we could all have emancipation from bondage and true freedom in our lives …
