"Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” 2 Cor. 3:18
We were born for freedom. You only have to look at any toddler wearing reigns to be reminded of that. We don't take kindly to restraints especially if we don't understand why they are there and what purpose they are serving.
God didn't plan for us to go through life constantly bumping into restrictions and limitations. He didn't create us to be held back. We were built for wide open spaces where we are free to explore, discover, dream...
He wants to take us to those places but like the verse tells us, it's where His Spirit is that freedom is found. Many people are on a quest to find themselves. They know there is more to life than the everyday monotony, their soul longs for more but it can only be found when we surrender ourselves to the voice of His Spirit, His leading and His guiding.
We weren't designed to be on reigns we were created to be like sheep choosing to follow the voice of the shepherd, submitting to the lover of our souls. If we journey with him each day we will realise we are on the most amazing adventure life has to offer. Our hearts will possess a freedom that cannot be bought and we will radiate a peace and rest that the world is desperately searching for.
