Let me tell y’all something.
If you’re living in bondage – it’s time to break free. It’s time to release the stronghold it has on you, and do not allow it back in your life.
For years I was bound by fear and anxiety. It was crippling. It had two hands wrapped around my throat. Constantly squeezing tighter – strangling me.
I was scared of every single thing. My shadow. Cars. Crowds. Anything different. Scared to die, but even more scared to live.
The closer I drew to God – the more I totally surrendered to Him – the lesser the grip that bondage had on me. Now the only thing that has a hold on me is God’s love and grace.
Yesterday I zip-lined through the mountains of Colorado. (While it was snowing!) Maybe that’s not a big deal to you, but for a girl that would not even get in a vehicle while it was raining – it’s a huge testament of what God can do. It’s a huge testimony of how far God can bring you if you will just follow Him. God makes us brave because He is brave. God gives us peace because He is peace. God lets us live!
Whatever has a hold on you – let it go. Let it go and let God be the ruler of your life. Draw close to Him. He is your strong tower. Your refuge. And He will walk beside you every single day.
When you’re about God’s business you don’t have time to be a scaredy-cat. And that statement is something I tell myself all the time.
“I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts. I will speak of Your testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.” Psalm 119:45-46
