AND THEY PRAISED GOD!

This is a passage of hope, restoration, with transformed lives.  We cannot come to Jesus and remain as we were.  We cannot lay all our problems and concerns at his feet in faith, feeling the same as when we carried the load.  When we come to Jesus, miraculous nothing, absolutely nothing looks the same.  The sky is a different color.  We actually look up to notice there is a sky!  Our surroundings that seem like they were closing in on us suddenly open up to miles and miles of peaceful green pastures.  We have been given His touch of life everlasting and it makes us feel good from the inside out and outside in. 

We are free to walk, run, go, tell and smile again while living life a free person all because of Jesus!  In the background of my mind when I read this short passage of miraculous God in flesh, Jesus, I rejoice and sing, giving Him praise again and again!

I AM FREE, The Newboys

Through You the blind will see
Through You the mute will sing
Through You the dead will rise
Through You all hearts will praise
Through You the darkness flees
Through You my heart sings

I am free
I am free
Let me hear you

And I am free to run (I am free to run)
And I am free to dance (I am free to dance)
And I am free to live for You (I am free to live for You)
I am free (I am free)
Yes I am free (yes, I am free)
Come on

And I am free to run (I am free to run)
I am free to dance (I am free to dance)
I am free to live for you (I am free to live for you)
I am free (I am free)
I am free (I am free)

Through You the kingdom comes
Through You the battle’s won
Through You I’m not afraid
Through You The price is paid
Through You there’s victory
Because of You my soul sings
I am free
Do you believe in freedom?
Come on

And I am free to run (I am free to run)
And I am free to dance (I am free to dance)
And I am free to live for You (I am free to live for You)
I am free (I am free)
Yes I am free (I am free)

Matthew—God’s Law Fulfilled

Matthew 15:29-31, NLT

Jesus Heals Many People

Jesus returned to the Sea of Galilee and climbed a hill and sat down. 30 A vast crowd brought to him people who were lame, blind, crippled, those who couldn’t speak, and many others. They laid them before Jesus, and he healed them all. 31 The crowd was amazed! Those who hadn’t been able to speak were talking, the crippled were made well, the lame were walking, and the blind could see again! And they praised the God of Israel.  (Emphasis mine.)

PAUSE TO PRAY AND PRAISE!

Am I free, truly free?

Do I feel free to run, dance and truly live for Jesus?

Do I really believe that what I believe about God really real?

Do my actions and behaviors daily show what I believe to be true?

Abba, Father in Heaven,

I do believe!  I am free!  Even though the enemy is constantly trying to trap me with his net to drag me off, I run to be free with You!  I’m free to dance with my feet or in my mind as the enemy loses each time to You in me.  That is the secret, right Lord?  You in me and me in You.  All that I am and all that I have belongs to You.  I love you and realize the depth of your love for me.  That alone sets me free to run, dance and live for you!

In Jesus Name, Amen
