The Way To Freedom

The Way To Freedom…

Chanukah is the Feast of Dedication. “Dedication” is the literal translation of the Hebrew “Chanukah.” The story of Chanukah involves a tyrant named Antiochus Epiphanes who sought to wipe out the Biblical faith and he nearly succeeded.

But a number of people in Israel committed themselves to serving God and rising up against the oppression. They won. They rededicated the Temple to the Lord’s purposes. That dedication was called “Chanukah”.

Chanukah is known as the Feast of Freedom, but is really the Feast of Dedication. That’s the key. The two go together. We all want to be free from bondage, from sin, from hindrance, from chains.

But if you want to be free, you have to be dedicated. If you’re half-hearted with God, double-minded, or without commitment you’ll never be free.

So commit to God with all of your heart, mind, soul and strength, commit your actions, your thoughts, your way, to Him and His purposes – and you will see failure turned to victory and chains broken, the blessings of a life of freedom.

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:10-12

Take an area of your life that you need freedom in, or more freedom, and commit and dedicate your heart and ways, and path, to the Lord as never before.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
