Living in Complete Freedom
By Victoria Osteen - Jul 04, 2011
Today in America we celebrate Independence Day, the birth of our freedom as a nation; but how often do you celebrate your true freedom—your spiritual freedom?

Scripture tells us that it is for freedom that Christ has set us free. In other words, God wants you to be free today simply because He wants you to enjoy complete and lasting freedom no matter what's happening in the circumstances around you.

Freedom comes, first of all, when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. He sets us free from the law of sin and death so we can have eternal life with Him. We don't have to live defeated, depressed, anxious, sick, upset, bitter or stuck in the past any longer. We are free from that bondage! The more we separate ourselves from negative, self-defeating attitudes and behaviors, the more we will truly experience God's freedom. Every time you release an area of your life to Him, every time you choose to follow God's Word over the temptations of the world, you are experiencing true, everlasting freedom!

Below are some scripture-based "freedom confessions" for you to meditate on and declare over your life. Scripture says that it is the truth of God's Word that makes us free. So I encourage you to look up the scripture references and ask God to give you a deeper revelation of each one. I believe that as you read and study God's Word, you will be empowered, energized and strengthened; and you will experience true, complete freedom in every area of your life!

I am free today because Christ has set me free! I will not allow myself to be burdened down with wrong thinking, negative attitudes, or anything that displeases God. (Galatians 5:1)

As a believer in Jesus, the Spirit of the Lord dwells in me and makes me free because where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom! (2 Corinthians 3:17)

I have full freedom and confidence to boldly approach the Father in prayer and worship. The Lord hears and answers my prayers and sets me free! (Hebrews 10:19; Psalm 118:5)

I am unquestionably free—free from the past, free from fear, free from worry, anxiety, depression, poverty, sickness and lack—because Jesus has set me free indeed! (John 8:36; Galatians 3:13)
