2 Corinthians 3:17

I don’t know about you, but I oftentimes feel like the world is just crumbling around us and that there’s no escape. ⁠⠀

BUT GOD. ⁠⠀

I am so grateful these thoughts that creep their way into my mind don’t have control over me anymore. I know God says in His Word that we are free in Christ no matter where we are and no matter what is happening in the world around us. ⁠⠀

2 Corinthians 3:17 ESV says, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” ⁠⠀

Jesus is Immanuel, God with us. He is omnipresent, His Spirit dwells in the hearts of true believers. And what gives us the most peace in all of this is that our God never changes. He always keeps His promises. He doesn’t go back on His Word. He promises His children (those who have been saved by grace through faith) that He will never leave nor forsake us.⁠⠀

In Christ alone, there is freedom in every single circumstance. God is bigger than politics, natural disasters, injustice of all kinds, covid-19… He created all things and is over all things. There is nothing outside of His control and sovereignty and these are truths we must cling to. Because of these promises we can continue to praise, rejoice, and experience peace – the truest form of freedom that can only be found in Christ!⁠⠀

Commit your hearts and minds to Christ today, dear friends! Commit your feelings, fears, mistakes, relationships… lay it all at His feet. You were not made to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. Give it all to God. His yoke is easy and His burden is light (Matt. 11:30). 🖤⁠
