happy independence day, america! i hope you are spending this day cooking out, swimming, and enjoying our freedom. we are so blessed to have the rights that we possess. i take for it granted. i just wanted to write a quick post regarding the freedom we have.
Genesis 1:2 “Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.”
i note these two scriptures because it proves to me that every living creature under the rule and reign of God, the Creator has the opportunity to live freely. before anything was created, “the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters”. later we learn that “where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom”. so that must mean that there was a freedom that was present before anything was created. there is a freeing spirit that enveloped this planet long before you and i were created, and it still remains today. i love that!
so i encourage you shake off those shackles and as the fireworks of freedom rain down tonight, ask the Holy Spirit to reign down on you. YOU are FREE!
Oh Yeah…Happy Birthday America, brought to you from yours truly and my dear niece, Izzy:
