2 Corinthians 3:17 “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”
The Lord is the Spirit and the Holy Spirit lives in you. So, this means you are free.
We are not free from hurt, pain, illnesses, or even abuse. We are free to come to the Lord with all our hurts, confusion, and afflictions. God hears our cry and because we have the Spirit we have the Lord. Find comfort in knowing that, no matter what you face, you are NEVER alone.
If we look at this a different way; we have the Spirit, which means, we also have the fruits that come with the Holy Spirit. We don’t have to focus on our pain and brokenness. Life is going to throw horrible and painful things our way but, through it all we can choose to focus on the pain or the fruit. Galatians 5:22-23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” I don’t know about you but, focusing on God’s fruit is much better than focusing on the hurts in life.
Father, thank you for the reminder that you are always with me and ready to offer Your fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Lord, life seems to get so crazy sometimes and the hurts cloud my ability to see You and everything Your relationship has to offer. As I go through my day, help me to see You in everything that I do. Give me the wisdom that comes with knowing You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
