Our liberation is a reality only in the places of our lives where the free Spirit of God is released, where he is in control.
Father, according to Your Word, it is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause a brother or sister to fall (Rom. 14:21). I pray that not only will I be mindful of this exhortation with others but that You will cause those around me not to do things that will cause me to fall!
Father, Your Word says that it is for freedom that Christ has set us free. With all my heart I desire to stand firm, then, and not let myself be burdened again by a yoke of slavery (Gal. 5:1).
Lord, I am helpless on my own. Empower me with the strength of Your Holy Spirit. Please help me, Lord!
