But let me run loose and free, celebrating God ’s great work, Every bone in my body laughing, singing, “ God, there’s no one like you. Psalm 35:9
The greatest freedom is found within God’s boundaries. Freedom is not license. Though we speak of deserving the freedom to…what is really meant is freedom from restriction. We don’t like restrictions but deep inside we know they provide security. Within God’s fences, we are protected and free.
In Genesis, Adam and Eve were given every tree to enjoy except… They were naturally drawn to crossing God’s line, just as I am. When they did, everything was lost. I don’t want to fight God’s boundaries anymore. I want to run freely within them.
Lord, help me enjoy and thrive in your enclosures for me. I want to run free within them, your boundaries. Thank you for knowing where and how to set the boundaries for me.
