Free or Not? By Brenda Drake

        In our world’s sad condition: with pandemic threat, civil unrest, our economic and personal woes; it is difficult to not feel apprehensive at the prospect of our future.  The key to our peace is to bring each of our concerns to the Lord in prayer and then to leave them in His care.  It is wise to get into the Word of God and begin to pray God’s promises.   What does the Bible say? The Word states we need to seek first the Kingdom of God.  It asserts we are just pilgrims passing through, and teaches us to love and care for others. We are instructed to go into the world and preach the Good News of Salvation.  Jesus showed us how to pray; for God’s Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.  We learn from the Scriptures we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus.  God’s Word assures He will never leave or forsake those that trust and have faith in Him. I agree that life can get a little messy but the Word says God is a very present help in time of trouble.  Are you free or not?  That is the question asked.

Free or Not?

When you worry and continuously experience bouts of fear
Are you free or not?….Will you this wisdom hear?
When you become angry and it stays and inside moves
Free or not is the question asked of you?
Are you easily discouraged and prone to depression?
Free or not is your confession?
Jesus sets the captive free;
These things should not be.
When you pray and place petitions before God’s Son
Do you believe your answer comes?
Or do you still walk with heavy burden on your back?
Free or not is again the question asked?
The earth displays turmoil’s and strife,
Do you live and stay upset with stresses in your life?
Do you speak only of the evils and give much thought to them?
Or do you speak the Word in the situations and rely on Him?
Are you free or not free from the heaviness of life?
You are free indeed when you have faith in the authority of Jesus Christ.

John 8:36
If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Isaiah 61:1
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

Joshua 1:5
There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
