He Set Me Free

My Post (2)

Out of my distress I called on the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me free.

~Psalm 118:5

It is true if you train a child up right, they will not forget what they were taught. When I read this, I started singing, He set me free, yes, He set me free. He broke the bonds of prison for me. I’m glory bound my Jesus to see for glory to God He set me free. It is an oldie, straight from the hymnal and though I like contemporary, classical and show tunes, lots of things, there is still old hymns and those little songs I learned as a girl. Sometime, I sing them too.

So, if you have been raised right you will remember who and what makes you free, Even if grow up and stray from the straight and narrow, you can call on Him, He will hear and set you free. The word distress is used, lots of things are stressful, and we distressed as a result.

Maybe, you feel like life is the pits, but He will free you from the muck and more or sin or circumstance. The world is in turmoil, and we all need to be free of something, fear, worry or sin. Even illness, grief, family strife, quarrels, marital problems, prodigals, He will set you free.

While we are using a Psalm, we could also look at 103, which reminds us of His benefits, what He delivers us from, it says he delivers us from the pit, sheol or the grave even. What a wonderful Lord to save us and set us free as we confess and believe on His name.

Jeremiah 33:3, sometimes referred to as God’s phone number, says to call on Him and He will answer and not only that but that He will show you things you didn’t know. Like tonight, as I write this, I had a couple of things happen that were unexpected you could say. One was good and kind, I responded the same, one was awful and it didn’t phase me. I’m a stronger in faith. I can let go, perhaps, I am not the soaring ballerina in white, but I am robed in righteousness through Him, I will get there. Why? He set me free.
