The Fourth of July

This is a good day, full and busy, yet relaxing. I spent time with Jesus this morning and He led me to 2 Thessalonians 2. In verse 13, it tells me that from the very beginning God chose me to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in truth. It encourages me to stand firm to the truth of Jesus who loves me.
As I was walking today, I thought about these verses and continued my conversation with Jesus from this morning. Here I am today, celebrating freedom, the freedom our country so enjoys. But, what if I lived somewhere that was not so free? Would I still be celebrating in my heart?  He has saved me! It doesn't matter where I am, I am free IN HIM! He has sent His Spirit to work on my spirit and to sanctify me daily, and as that happens, I believe the truth which is Jesus. I believe in freedom, because I'm walking in freedom, because He is freedom!
Today, on this fourth of July, I am celebrating my heart and the fact that Jesus lives there. I am rejoicing that He chose me, and my little life to work through me to display the freedom that He offers. Yes! The freedom from bondage, the miracles, the life, the truth---today is freedom big time!
This is my God, my King, and I will worship Him today.
Jesus, continue to Say That Again to me, I am free, because You chose me!
