FREEDOM: Redirection

on August 30, 2016

SOMETHING WORTH SHARING

Freedom: the state of being free or at liberty rather than in confinement or under physical restraint

 Redirection: to change the direction or focus of

 13As for you, if you redirect your heart
and lift up your hands to Him in prayer—
14 if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents—
15 then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
16 For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as waters that have flowed by.
17 Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
18 You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.

19 You will lie down without fear,
and many will seek your favor.
20 But the sight of the wicked will fail.
Their way of escape will be cut off,
and their only hope is their last breath.

–Job 11:13-20

On this morning, my normal commute/route (routine) was changed. The news reported an interstate shut down, immediately, I thought “MORE TRAFFIC!” In my silent time this morning, I was reminded of my “one word” for the year.

That one word was, REDIRECTION. On today, my normal route was shut down (closed).  In order to have FREEDOM or to truly walk in our FREEDOM, we must allow REDIRECTION. On today, this truly spoke to me…sometimes God has to shut some things down for us to go another direction. We get comfortable with the same mundane routine and become complacent in a comfortable, yet uncomfortable place.  Don’t get so confined to everyday and negate redirection. It’s time for a spiritual liberation. Allow your path to be redirected. Don’t get caught in the wrong lane, when you were called to go a new direction. There’s a difference.

Today, declare that you will allow God to redirect your steps.  Whatever you desire, HE can and WILL REDIRECT!

Self-check:  What or who is restricting you from your freedom? Are you restricting anyone from their freedom?

Something that I was taught, “Treat others how you want to be treated.” I thought it was a cliché, but it’s a FACT. Don’t restrict your FREEDOM based on your actions. Nor allow someone to hinder your freedom. Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed, but today was given only by grace.  Declare, FREEDOM!

Be inspired-
