THE FREEDOM OF THE WIND by Patrick Lumbroso |
Psalms 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
In today's world, so much is about conformity; it may not be bad, but does this conformity to accepted attitudes lead us to become the creatures God has ordained us to be? Even the concept of individuality has become an alibi that we use when we claim the freedom to choose whom or what we will conform to.
The enemy of our soul uses the grip, the vice of conformity to the world and its ways to keep our soul. The accuser of the saints terrorizes us with stories of gloom that cause us to fear lest we try to escape; lest we become free again and live under the sole dependence of God. What lies does this devil not concoct in his fear of loosing his grip on us.
Like the wind, the freedom of our soul lies in its ability to yield to God in all His ways, without controls, without the obstructions of those who would wish it to conform it their ungodly ways. Our soul only finds fullness of freedom when we give it permission to follow God, the Spirit of its Creator. One word of consent on our part towards Jesus, and we can free ourselves from the terrorizing grip of the devil.
May we never be fooled by this enemy’s lies into conforming to the ways of the world. May we never listen to him to the detriment and freedom of our soul. We can call on Jesus the Christ, the Savior, and today be blessed with the freedom of the wind.
Joh 3:8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
