The Road to FREEDOM
You can be free from the fear of death, from anxiety, tension and fear of other people, the daily drudgery of uncertainty in this world. Jesus Christ came to set the captives free but we only remain in that freedom as long as we STAY WITH Jesus and we OBEY Him, as long as we TRUST Him and FOLLOW His guidance.
God led the children of Israel out of Egypt, out of bondage and slavery, through the Red Sea but He took them into the Wilderness where nobody can survive. But because God was with them He made them survive. But they never learned to trust Him and therefor He struck them down, they perished in the wilderness because they never OBEYED Him and they never got to know His ways.
If you start following Jesus, He will guide you but you will have to FOLLOW Him into the WILDERNESS and you will only be SAFE as long as you stay WITH Him and IN Him, in obedience to Him, TRUSTING Him, OBEYING Him and FOLLOWING Him. That is the ONLY SAFE PLACE, is to BE WITH Jesus, to LISTEN to His voice and to FOLLOW Him. Then He guides you and He makes you FREE from bondage and from fear, and you have LIFE because you are WITH Jesus all the time; you are living in the presence of the living God.
Have you decided to FOLLOW Jesus? Are you going with Him EVERY STEP OF THE WAY? Are you remaining IN that FREEDOM with Jesus? Or have you strayed? Have you gone your own way? Are you following Jesus Christ and living under the shelter of His arms?
May Jesus bless you.
