Oh To Be Wise Meditations

Freedom is a choice you make whether in a physical prison cell or in the shackles of your own mind. You are a prisoner to all the things you allow to worry and fear about. Our hedge of protection is not the blessings God gives us. Its not the money, the job, the wife, the children, and the friends. All these things as well as other physical blessings can be taken away by sin and destruction. The hedge of protection around us is our faith in Christ, and the way we live our life staying away from folly. We have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God. The benefit of faith in Christ is reaping holiness that results in eternal life. We must strive to live as free people in need of no evil thing. Let us not use our freedom as a cover up for evil but live as slaves for God. What good is it to receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? If we suffer for doing good and endure it, this is commendable before God. Our bodies need to be submitted to Gods Spirit. Christ suffered for us, leaving us an example, that we should follow in his steps. Live free from condemnation because Gods favor is upon us. God will bless you for this: if you endure the pain of undeserved suffering because you are conscious of his will. Freedom is more than a mindset, its a real day to day decision to stay in relationship with Christ. Meditate 1 Peter 2:16-25
