God set you free.
What internal desire are you trying to fulfill with a temporary external win?
One of the lies we often believe is that we can fulfill an internal longing with something that the world offers. A new job, more social media followers, a certain relationship, more money, and the list goes on.
That is why too often we walk around worried about being “people pleasers.”
But, friend, the truth is that in Christ you are free –by surrendering your life to Him, you are set free from that bondage. God is the only one you should care about pleasing. When you do that, everybody in your life wins anyway! By surrendering to God, you can be a better parent, a better spouse, a better sibling, a better friend, etc.!
Don’t let the weight of self-doubt and comparison bring you down, be yourself –be who God created you to be. You’re free to do so!
Positive Affirmation today: “I Am Free.”
Here are three verses for you to reflect on and pray over today:
“So Christ has truly set us free.
Now make sure that you stay free,
and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law.”
“So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.
And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.”
“So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.”
