Years ago, I sought the Lord to break areas of addiction in my life…
Blessed be the Lord my Rock, Who trains my hands for war,
And my fingers for battle.
Jesus was calling me to meet with Him every morning and get that day’s battle plan. He was training me to break the enemy’s grip on my life and how to maintain His freedom when it was secured.
Many days when I came to get His special directive, I would get the same nudge to do the same thing He had spoken to me the day before. The more quickly I obeyed and responded, He would move me to the next step. Little did I know, I was learning to hear His voice daily. Little did I know, the devil was being defeated by my every advance. Jesus never told me anything that His Spirit wouldn’t enable me to do.
Did I not come some mornings? Sure. Did I come and then not listen? Certainly! Yet through all this failure on my part, He never revoked His invitation to meet with me. He never failed to come.
What do you need freedom from? Surely there are many facets to experiencing full freedom in Christ, but getting a daily battle plan from the Lord’s heart to yours is probably the sweetest.
