I believe that God has purposed for us to live a wide open spacious life. To live, as Paul put it in 2 Corinthians 6, expansively.
It may not always feel wide and open but by faith it is. The only reason I don’t live that way is because I don’t live that way. It’s nothing to do with God.
So here’s my new reminder, for myself and also for you. If you are believer, a follower of Jesus then know that God has set the boundaries on our lives wide, according to His word. He has given us everything we need that pertains to life, blessed us with every spiritual blessing, it’s not for us to try and control the space God has placed us in, He is more than capable of doing that.
Freedom doesn’t mean we can do whatever we like or live however we want. Instead it’s about living within the freedom of knowing Jesus, and that doesn’t come naturally. The battle between the flesh and the spirit is a daily one.
So here’s what I am saying…I have decided to follow Jesus, according to His word, NO TURNING BACK. How about you?
