Psalm 146:6-7 God, who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them; who keeps truth forever; who executes justice for the oppressed; who gives food to the hungry. The LORD frees the prisoners.
We, as humans, were prisoners. Prisoners to our sins. But God has freed us from the prisons! So many of us are stuck in our cells and do not even notice that the chains have been lifted and the doors unlocked. We are too busy staring at the walls, worrying, and fretting to just look up for a moment and realize that we are free! We can go and we can live our lives and be bountiful and truly happy. God has given us the POWER!
No, we are not perfect and do not really deserve to walk alongside the Lord, but he loves us and has given us the permission to do so! And God does provide everything we need to live our lives to the fullest. It is all about TRUST and FAITH! There will be difficult times, but as they say “Let Go and Let God”.
- Have faith and trust in the Lord that he will provide what you need (and even what you want) IN HIS TIME!
- Have patience, let go and let God do the work – this does not mean to sit around waiting for something to fall in your lap. But continue to persevere and soon the perfect opportunity or object will present itself and you will wonder why you had ‘wasted’ time pursuing other routes.
- LOVE, let go of your frustrations and your anger. Anger clouds the sights and makes it difficult or impossible for us to see what we need to see.
- Don’t return to your prison cell and be held up by the binds and chains that you put on yourself.
