One of my all-time favorite heroes is Harriet Tubman. Harriet was born a slave in 1820 and bravely escaped to freedom almost 30 years later. What is more, she spent her life helping others find freedom!
This escape to freedom was a process. It took a long time and a lot of effort. Many runaway slaves wanted to turn around and go back to their owners! The fear, exhaustion, and unknowns of doing life in a new way made slavery look appealing.
In this video, I share about how our journey to freedom with God can feel similar. Often the Lord leads us in a process to freedom that is challenging. Sometimes there is instant healing and breakthrough, and I love those times! Usually, there is a journey involved in which He takes us by the hand and leads us to freedom one choice at a time. He actually teaches us how to live our new life of freedom.
I wonder if He is highlighting an area in your life in which you aren't entirely free. He made you to be free, and whole, in all ways! He invites you to follow Him on the journey to freedom.
Ask Him to open your ears and eyes to His leadership. That He might call your attention any time you want to run back to the familiar ways of slavery! Ask Him to teach you how to live differently with each step towards freedom.
