Day 2 of 5 • This day’s reading


The longer I live, the more I see how God has been writing a great story in my life. Its plot illustrates His power to transform a life shaped by shame into a life full of freedom— a life I live as a champion, Spirit- filled and Spirit- led. As a child and a teen, I never could have imagined such a beautiful story for myself. But God is a magnificent author, and I am so thankful I get to live His story for my life every day.

God wants to do the very same thing for you. He created you for a specific purpose. He has a powerful plan— a significant re-framing— for your life. And guess what... Slavery has no place in God’s story line. Jesus came to set you free from every bondage— shame, fear, doubt, pain— from whatever has enslaved you. Yes, the Enemy will always try to throw his weights back on you, but when you feel them start to pull you down, declare today’s verse over your life. Personalize it and remember to “stand firm” in your God- given freedom. It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm and confidently move forward in God’s new story for your life.
