Finally Free

3 Oct

“If the Son has set us free, then we must be free indeed…..”  The words reverberated in the car, bounced off the windows, absorbed into the leather seats, filling my heart.

Free. I’m free! The song by Nichole Nordemon, Finally Free, is one of my favorites. I sing along with Nichole, allowing myself to experience the feeling of wonder as the lyrics sink into my soul. Redemption is not just a word…it is the breath of life.

How many of us spend our days feeling chained? Chained to the lies of the Deceiver? The thoughts that worm their way into our hearts. The words that break our hearts. Who has never thought that he/she is not good enough? Smart enough? Beautiful enough?  The self talk stabs at the spirit, and leaks pain…and the manacles tighten, bruising the flesh.

Who has ever felt broken by their past? Lost to their future? Scared of the unknown? Tired of the decisions that turned out to be the wrong ones. Frustrated by the plans that did not see fruition.

Chained.

Thank God, Christ broke the chains. The chains from my past that hung on me and weighed me down…the chains of uncertainty for my days that lay ahead, and the chains of negative self talk. He considers me worthy. The chains that bound me fast, are broken, laying on the ground around me. I step away…and step towards Him.

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galations 5:1  NIV

*****************************************************************

No chain is strong enough
No choice is wrong enough
No mountain high enough that He
can’t climb

No shadow dark enough
No night is black enough
No road is lost enough that He can’t find

And if the Son has set us free
Then we must be, free indeed
Let the chains fall away, starting today
Everything has changed
I’m finally free

No pain is deep enough
No heart could bleed enough
Nothing but Jesus’ love can make a way

And if the Son has set us free
Then we must be, free indeed
Let the chains fall away, starting today
Everything has changed
I’m finally free!

    God has been exposing some of this self talk that has remained hidden behind veils, disguised as, i dont even know what, trying to look all significant and spiritual … when i know that the Word of God is the final authority on everything. walking mostly free isnt good enough. Jesus paid for the whole thing!

    this is very timely encouragement for me! many thanks :D

    Dawn,
    Wonderful words, wonderful scripture. Wonderful thoughts. We ARE free indeed. Jesus has set me free from chains I wore so long they rusted. But He set me FREE! Thank you for reminding me of my freedom. Have a blessed day in our freedom. God bless.
