Word

new year… new word…

The spiritual discipline…
one word… for a year…
continues to call me…

The past three years…
a single word… has helped define…
my walk with Him…

2013… Obedience
2014… Journey
2015… New

This year… the word came before I even asked…
a word… that’s already… having an impact…

My one word… for 2016…

Freedom
Already… I sense these words connecting… into a truth…

Obedience to Him…
is a journey with Him…
into a new life…
of freedom

freedom… noun1. the quality or state of being free: as a: the absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action b: liberation from slavery or restraint or from the power of another: independence c: the quality or state of being exempt or released usually from something onerous…

The Word regarding freedom

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore,
and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
Galatians 5:1 ESV

For you were called to freedom, brothers.
Only do not use your freedom
as an opportunity for the flesh,
but through love serve one another.
Galatians 5:13 ESV
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is,
there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 3:17 ESV
The Greek translated… freedom… means…
  • liberty to do or to omit things having no relationship to salvation… true liberty is living as we should not as we please… Enhanced Strong’s Lexicon
  • the word denotes “freedom” of access to the presence of God… Vine’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words

My favorite… freedom of access to the presence of God…


What a great freedom…
one we only have in Christ Jesus…
Consider this year… your freedom…
to approach Him… and ask for a word…
No telling where it might lead…
Father God… thank You for freedom…
teach me what it means in my life…
show me how to glorify You…
 with the freedom You’ve provided…
