Walk at Liberty

“And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.” Psalm 119:45

Liberty was a founding principle upon which our country was established, but lately I struggle to feel liberty is being honored any more. Liberty: the state of being free. I no longer feel free to say, do or even believe in what I feel to be right. All that was once viewed as “right” within our country is now being proclaimed as wrong. Everything around us has been reversed from what it was once established upon. Our sense of security has been taken away.

Yet, I still possess the ability to walk at liberty in the power given to me by my Lord and Savior. I still am free from the bondage of this world because I have placed my faith in the one that came to heal the broken hearted and set free those that were in-prisoned.

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;” Isaiah 61:1

God wants us to walk at liberty. He created us to live victorious over the evil of this world, establishing a means of deliverance.

“Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.” Romans 8:21

Wherever God is present there is the power of liberty, the possibility of walking at liberty. The liberty that we experience in our Heavenly Father can never be taken by the powers of this world; for where the Spirit of the Lord exists there is liberty.

“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” 2 Corinthians 3:17

Knowing that I have this liberty, I no longer need to allow myself to become encumbered with the yoke of bondage with which the devil tries to entangle me. I am to stand fast in the liberty that I have in Christ.

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” Galatians 5:1

I can sit around bemoaning the struggles going on around me or I can stand knowing that I walk at liberty in Christ. My focus should be on Him and the work He is doing in and through my life for therein I possess the ability to walk at liberty.

“And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.” Psalm 119:45
