Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
Serve the LORD with gladness:
Know ye that the LORD he is God:
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting;
Freedom can be defined or described as thus:
- Personal liberty, as opposed to bondage or slavery
- Exemption from the presence of anything specified (example, freedom from fear)
- The absence of ceremony or reserve – e.g. religion
- The right to enjoy all the privileges or special rights of citizenship, membership … in God’s Economy
- The condition of being free from restraints
- The right to unrestricted use; full access to God
I am thankful that for freedom because I am free to be my unique self, hence making the intrinsic nature of God; after all I am made in his image as Genesis 1:27 confirms, which reads " So God created human beings[a] in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them."
I am thankful for freedom because I am not in bondage or in slavery to this world, Jesus has set me free as declared in Galatians 5:1, which reads "So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law."
I am thankful for freedom because I am not bondage to needless religion, I am free to serve and worship God in spirit and in truth, from my heart; such as described in John 4:24, which reads "For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.”
I am thankful for freedom because I am free to utilise all the privileges that comes with being a child of God, from being a resident of his economy.
I am thankful for freedom because it allows me to have full access to my father in heaven, as explained in Hebrews 4:16, which reads "So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most."
I am thankful for freedom because I am able to be a witness to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, without being prosecuted or gagged.
So, dear papa, today, I place my basket full of thanksgiving and praise thanking you for my freedom. I am ever so thankful to be free to be all you have made me to be, free to embrace my uniqueness and my individuality. Free from the world’s sin and bondage, and free to worship you in spirit and in truth.
Lord, I pray my basket full of thanksgiving wrapped up in praise is a beautiful and sweet smelling in thy presence. Be glorified in my thanksgiving and honored in my praises today. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE, HERE IS YOUR INVITATION
