No Longer a Slave to Sin
Share This Devotional
There are times in our lives when we feel like we are in bondage. We may be going through spiritual warfare which can be debilitating. The fight is not always fair. We may feel defeated, but the Lord says:
“‘In that day,’ declares the Lord Almighty, ‘I will break the yoke off their necks and will tear off their bonds; no longer will foreigners enslave them. Instead, they will serve the Lord their God and David their king, whom I will raise up for them’” (Jeremiah 30:8-9 NIV).
Let us thank God that we do not have to stay there. God will raise us up during trouble and bondage. Whether we feel enslaved by the situation or circumstance, we can look to Him for our help.
I remember feeling so plagued by sin it had me bound. I did not think I could leave a life of sin, but the Lord brought me out. I dare not say I am sinless, but I have a heart to repent. I had to remove myself from negative people and negative places. God revealed himself to me and told me the truth about myself and the truth set me free.
I am so glad He did not leave me, and I know He will not leave you. If you are struggling in a place of bondage today, give it to Jesus. He died for you so you can live free indeed. Put your trust in Him and His word. He is faithful and will never forsake you.
He led me to a good church. It’s a place of fellowship and worship. I am discipled there and it feels like home, where I am part of a church family..
I am no longer a slave or an orphan; I truly feel like His child. It was hard for me to accept His love and the love of others because I did not feel I deserve it. But I learned that we will never truly deserve the fullness of His love. I learned how to pray and read my Bible, which helped soften my heart to receive Him. It helped me learn that I am no longer a slave to sin but resurrected to a new life. Old things are passed away, behold away behold all things are made new.
Sometimes we must wait on the Lord and be of good courage. He will strengthen our hearts as we go through trials and tribulations. We must not be discouraged because He is with us every step of the way.
