No Longer Slaves - Verse 4

We've been liberated
From our bondage
We're the sons and the daughters
Let us sing our freedom

Liberty (freedom) is not always evident by viewing our circumstances or situations we find ourselves in and definitely not by judging our emotions. It is a gift from God, that was paid for with the highest price, the Life of His Son Jesus. The only way to stay FREE is to stay in truth, the Word. No Longer Slaves is jam packed with truth!

For all who are allowing themselves to be led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading again to fear [of God’s judgment], but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons [the Spirit producing sonship] by which we [joyfully] cry, “Abba! Father!” Romans 8:14-15
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage (slavery to the law). Galations 5:1

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." John 8:32

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36

Several years ago I had an amazing revelation of freedom:

April 17, 2012
My thinking up until recently had been that I would have the victory or freedom when "all was said and done" or when I could say, "this is what God did, Praise the Lord!", but today as I walked around the neighborhood feeling much like a daughter feeling full and confident, it dawned on me - THIS is the victory, the FREEDOM - NOT caring what the outcome is but, basking, growing and celebrating the journey. The victory is I AM a daughter with a Daddy that loves her and no verdict or outcome can change that. I have the freedom to face ALL that lies before me without fear. So, even with no idea what the outcome is in any given situation, but SURE that the journey is making me more of the woman He created me to be.

In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day, by Mark Batterson says, “Maybe we underestimate our freedom in Christ. Maybe it’s not just freedom from sin. Maybe it is freedom to do the extramdimensional.” Freedom is not just a fringe benefit of being saved, it is our inheritance as a son or daughter.
Do you feel free? If you said no, don’t let that be your judge! If you are a follower of Christ you ARE FREE. Ask the Father to give you a revelation of your FREEDOM and your inheritance as His son or daughter - then SING about it!
