Freedom Friday

My eyes are ever on the Lord, for only he will release my feet from the snare.” (Psalm 25:15)


When taking a driver’s license exam, one may recall having to take the vision and signs test as well. During these tests, you may have to identify various street signs to show your competence of driving on the roads. The exam may include shapes like the yellow circle with an X going through it, or an upside down yellow triangle, or a red octagon. We know these to be the railroad crossing, yield, and stop signs.

It’s not merely because of pure genius that we know these signs, (☺) however, one will have studied the signs long enough to become familiar with them.

God's Word is like that. He's given us several signs to learn and to follow (i.e., love your neighbor, guard your heart, and even to tame your tongue).

The tests come when you're challenged to uphold God's word and act spiritually instead reacting irrationally.

Don't ignore the signs: when God is saying slow down (James 1:19)
Don't ignore the signs: when God is saying speak up (1 Peter 4:11).
Don't ignore the signs: when God is saying show me that you love me (John 14:15)

If there are times that you can’t remember the signs, make a U-turn, and ask God for guidance. He’s watching to see if you pass the tests, yet He’s also available to release you if you ever feel lost or stuck. But remember, just because we've passed the tests, it doesn't give us a license to drive erratically.

Free yourself today from disobedience and spiritual wreckage by not ignoring God's signs. Meditate on His Word and study so that you're prepared when the tests come. Free yourself by not only speaking God’s word, but also living it out in your daily walk. You can do it! Get free, but don’t ignore the signs.

What do you need to free yourself of today?
