Cut Free

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- November 1, 2011

“But the Lord is righteous; he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked”. Psalm 129:4

Christ cuts us free from the cords of wicked oppressors. It may seem like the wicked have won at times, but this is the testing of our trust. The obstinate may be an entity of God’s discipline to break our pride and smooth the edges of our ego. Then we can see those who oppose righteous ways as an instrument of the Lord to instruct us in how to live by faith.

You may have a family member whose faith is a façade. If so, serve them with authentic and unselfish living. Pray their pretentious life will lose its appeal, and they will be cut free from a caricature of Christian living. We have been cut free by Christ, freed to serve Him and others. Freedom is for those who live by faith and not by sight.

“For we live by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7).

Furthermore, the Lord has cut you free from frivolous and irresponsible living for a life of faith. No longer do you have to roam around like an unsure beast, stuck in a purposeless predicament. You have the resources of heaven to help you understand the way. You are cut free from cynicism to hope, from insecurity to security, from greed to generosity, from resentment to forgiveness, and from worry to peace.

Christ has cut you free from circumstantial faith (based on the economy or anything uncertain), to a trust rooted in unchanging truth; Jesus Himself. So do not allow the cords of your circumstances to choke out your belief in God. By faith invite the sharp scissors of your Savior to slice through your situation, and set you free to live and love the Lord, others and yourself.

Jesus says, “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:36).

Does a secret (or not so secret) sin hold you back from enjoying all that Jesus has to give you? If so, seek out His forgiveness and healing. Submerge yourself in the security and accountability of other Christ followers. You can be unencumbered by earthly weights that hold you down like a helium balloon that’s unable to lift off from its ties to the ground. Therefore, go to God and receive His grace that allows you to fly by faith!

“But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life” (Romans 6:22).

From what attitude or actions do I need Christ to cut me free?

    I am the manager of JustCBD Store label (justcbdstore.com) and I am currently trying to broaden my wholesale side of company. I am hoping anybody at targetdomain share some guidance ! I considered that the most effective way to accomplish this would be to connect to vape stores and cbd stores. I was hoping if anyone could suggest a trustworthy web site where I can purchase CBD Shops B2B Database I am currently reviewing creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the best solution and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you should write more on this subject matter, it might not be a taboo subject but usually people do not speak about such subjects. To the next! Kind regards!!
