Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6
You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32
For a long time, I had the understanding that when you own or confess the truth about yourself, then there is freedom. This is true. But a deeper meaning that God showed me on this is: When you come to know me; I am the truth. I am the one that sets you free.
“You will know Me and I will set you free”.
It’s in our walk with Jesus that we become set free. It is a process of deliverance from anything that holds you captive.
Jesus promises that he came, to set the captives free. Whatever you are being held captive of, Jesus can deliver you from it.
The first step is ownership of what is holding you captive.
It can be an addiction, a secret, toxic behavior patterns……..anything!
If you are a Christian, the Holy Spirit is deposited in you. The Holy Spirit is the counselor (John 14:26). Let me say, the best counselor available. Take your cares to Him and lay them at his feet and let Him grow and heal you.
As you seek God and live by His Word, He sets you free: little by little. I think it’s little by little so that He has the relationship with you. He wants us coming back to Him for counsel and direction.
What area in your life do you need freedom? ______________________________________________
Prayer: Father, reveal the secret places in my life that you want to heal. Give me courage to trust you in these areas. Reveal yourself to me so that I know you, THE TRUTH, more. Be my counselor, my teacher and my healer. Thank You Father that you sent Jesus; I receive the healing and the freedom Jesus bought for me, through the cross!!
