Looking for freedom? For independence from things that have kept a darkness hovering over your life?
Today, in America, we are celebrating our country’s independence from being ruled by another entity. On July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Continental Congress, declaring that the thirteen American colonies, then at war with Great Britain, regarded themselves as independent of the British Empire. The people of these colonies formed a new nation—the United States of America. The price for their freedom was paid by others whose blood was shed on the battlefield.
Our lives as believers in Jesus Christ are much like this. After having lived under the sovereignty of Satan, we make a declaration of independence from his rule, choosing instead to be under the sovereignty of Jesus. We transition from a kingdom of heavy and burdensome darkness into one of beautiful life-filled light. We regard ourselves as independent of the enemy of our lives. We choose to be dependent upon the One who loves us with an unfailing love. His love removes burdens and brings light and a lightness to our lives because He’s the One who keeps all His promises about doing us good.
Jesus is the One who wants us to be free of every influence of darkness in our body, mind, and spirit.
For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son. Colossians 1:13
Experience independence on a deeper level today, knowing that the price for your freedom was paid by another— Jesus. He gives you freedom from every bondage, addiction, and disease, because the price for it has already been paid…on the cross.
Celebrate your independence!
