If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. ( Joh 8:36 KJV)
Across the world, there is a constant search for peace and freedom.
There are many people who are battling with past decisions and past mistakes and can't seem to move forward. Some go to their graves all trapped and tangled up because they never got to the point to ask for forgiveness and to even forgive themselves.
A young lady tells of how she was ill-treated as girl growing up. She was constantly sexually abused by a step father who promised her that if she ever told her mother, he would kill her and her mother. As she spoke, the tears ran down her eyes and then she got angry with the world. Her voice became rough - tough - aggressive. It's like she hated everyone - even me - the person she was talking too.
This was one of my hardest counselling sessions. What should I say to this young lady in need of help. God quickly led me to this particular scripture in John 8: If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
I knew that the process would not have been instant, but by getting the lady to recognise that accepting Jesus is the first step to gaining freedom from the issue at hand, was a GREAT START!
God knows what you've gone through in your life. He knows what you are holding in your heart. He knows how bottled up and trapped you are. He is just waiting for you to turn the matter over to him so that he can grant you FREEDOM.
FREEDOM is all you want! Give Jesus a try. Talk to him - He's waiting to listen. Tell him EVERYTHING! He has time to listen. When you're finish telling him everything, ask him to save you and carry the burden thereon.
You are too weak to carry your burden or burdens any longer. Cast them on Jesus - so says The Apostle Peter.
You can have your FREEDOM TODAY. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. ( John 8:36 KJV)
