Praise God for setting me free!
Praise God for setting me free!

Written on a Saturday morning after a party:

—-Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. . . . . . Romans 8:26 NKJV

Lord, do You still love me even when I sin? Last night, at a Sunday School party I really overate! I turned completely away from the “eating plan” that You directed me to! But Lord, I enjoyed every bite so much that I just threw caution away and ate until I became bloated!  I binged on sweet pickles and cinnamon bread of all things, but Lord, they were so good! Lord, do You still love me even when I sin?

(Yes My child, I love you like no other! I died for you while  you were still immersed in your sin, remember?)

Yes Lord, I remember. Help me to turn away from the weight of this sin that so easily besets me!

(My child, I see you as finished and complete, standing glorious before Me without spot or wrinkle.)

— I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of   righteousness, . . .           Isaiah 61: 10 NKJV

—- There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.             Romans 8:1-2 NKJV

(My child, I did not come to condemn you.  I came to set you free, free indeed!)

— Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.         John 8:36 NKJV

(Rejoice in My love, My child, for I have come to set you free and you will be free indeed!)
