Freedom from within

To undo in life is to move forward with wisdom

Most restrictions, constraints, limitation, bonds and the absence of freedom experienced by men, isn’t a physical problem. However, from within the mind, the physical body is trapped. The mind is what make us free as humans. Yet, it is the most powerful element of keeping a person bind when he or she intransigently refuses to accept another alternative, to a cause of liberation.

 

Jesus said, and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 

 

The phrase, and the truth shall make you free, this means “to go where one wishes and so free.” Although freedom is laid at the feet for many, nevertheless, they are too engrossed in the constant reminder as to why they want to be free. Perhaps, a situation or an event that enslaved them. This has become their focus rather than the freedom that awaits them. They have emerged themselves in the reason for their constraints, while blindly ignoring the freedom that they need. Let the mind that is bound ask itself, what do I need, freedom? The many reasons of the past, for the absence of freedom, isn’t the path to freedom. Though it may serve as a reminder, but a reminder only points to a goal.

 

One cannot set an alarm clock, and when it rings, only to stare at it. Instead, they proceed to the reason for the alarm which is the goal. In this case, the freedom of the mind is that goal and not the many reasons of the past, for the absence of freedom. The freedom for tomorrow is now to receive. To undo in life is to move forward with wisdom. The fear or the reverence of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

 

Jesus said, come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest.

 

Let the heart sing with melody, the joy of praises by faith to the Lord . . .  Search me, oh God, and know my heart today. Try me, oh precious Saviour, know my thought I pray. See if there would be some wicked, wicked ways in me. Cleanse me from every sin and set me free.
