Apostle Grace Lubega
Galatians 2:4-5(KJV); And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage: To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.
Christianity is a life of liberties. In fact, the Word of God is called the perfect law of liberty (James 1:25).
However, not many Christians understand these liberties, and some treat them with great suspicion.
For example, a man may hear a Christian quote and claim John 14:13, ‘And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.’
This scripture is an invitation into the liberties of God.
However, if a man does not understand these liberties, he will ask a question, “Does this ‘whatsoever’ mean that you can have anything you want even when it is detrimental to those around you?”
The answer to that is an obvious no.
You should not be indifferent to the boundaries in these liberties.
To reject these liberties because you do not understand how to apply them is to live contrary to your nature as a new creature in Christ.
For the Bible says in John 3:8(NIV), The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.
Liberties are your divine entitlement and the direct result of the freedom Christ purchased.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Liberties are your divine entitlement and the direct result of the freedom Christ purchased.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for launching me into deeper liberties. I know that they are my portion as a child of the Most High and I exercise myself in their realities daily, to the glory of Your name, Amen.
