God: sets the captive free…
John 8:36 (KJV) “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
Many times we have been granted our freedom from the things in life which hold us captive and when freedom comes sometimes we take it for granted. At times we tend to walk right back into that bondage which we were separated from and that can be sad.
We don’t treasure that gift of lightness; the feeling of relief which comes with being loosed from our load. It is almost as if we had become so accustomed to carrying the load that we cherished that which was upon us.
God sent His son to set the captives free and if in His goodness, He decides that the load will be removed and destroyed, then this will be the case.
May we be in agreement with the Lord and appreciate and have a grateful heart when He works on our behalf.
