Where The Spirit Of The Lord Is!

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. (Rom. 8:2) 

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom...

These words will forever ring true in my life and in yours no matter what we go through in this lifetime. In spite of the many ups and downs we experience throughout our lifetimes, the Spirit of the Lord will constantly abide in us as we experience justification, daily justification in our lives.

Daily justification does not happen because of anything we do in our own strength. It happens because God loves us and has already made that expression very clear in giving us His beloved Son to atone for our sin, sin that continues to happen in our lives whether done intentionally or not. As a result of our sinful nature and the reality of death in our lives, only Jesus can break the bondage to sin and death and set us from free from those things. 

The good news is that Jesus has indeed come into our lives and has set us free from bondage to sin and death. He came into our lives because so that we can freely express the freedom that Jesus lives and is real and relevant to us today. As the Spirit of the Lord continues to lead us, we will become over-comers and live victorious lives that will bring honor, praise, and ultimately glory to our Heavenly Father.

Have you experienced freedom in Jesus Christ?

My dear friends, I have often heard the phrase "Let go...let God". I personally have yet to find a scripture verse with those same exact words, but I'm confident in the Lord that there is a scripture verse somewhere in the Bible that makes some type of reference to the above phrase. Just keep in mind that there will always be freedom in the letting go. The ability to let go of anything (or anyone) that that will get in the way of you having an intimate relationship with God and with those that God brings into your life.

Thank you so much for reading this far my friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you as you seek shelter and freedom under the wings and shadow of Almighty God. JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!...:-). Here's the lyrics to Where The Spirit Of The Lord Is by Hillsong Live. ENJOY!!!...:-D.

WHERE THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS BY HILLSONG LIVE 

VERSE
For we know the truth
Your truth has set us free
In Your Name alone
We have been released
You are here with us
You are here with us

We are slaves no more
Freedom is our hope
Never looking back
Jesus You are Lord
We give all to You
We give all to You

CHORUS
Where the Spirit of the Lord is
There is freedom
Where the Spirit of the Lord is
Chains are broken
Eyes are open
Christ is with us
Christ is with us

VERSE
Who the Son has freed
He is free indeed
All our sin is gone
We have been redeemed
Jesus paid it all
Jesus paid it all

BRIDGE
Open wide the gates of heaven
Fill our hearts as we surrender
Lord let Your presence fall
Lord let Your presence fall

Open wide the gates of heaven
We will worship You forever
Lord let Your presence fall
Lord let Your presence fall
