Freedom from EVERYTHING (Acts 13:38b-39)

"And by him everyone who believes is freed from everything from which you could not be freed by the law of Moses." - Acts 13:38b-39

The law of Moses was useful for a temporary covering of sins. It was not sufficient to cover all our sins. It also pointed us to Jesus among other things.

But think of all the many things it could not do.

By Jesus we are freed from EVERYTHING which we could not be freed by the Law of Moses. The things I think of are:

Fear, lack of hope, sadness, death, pain, eating restrictions, and my future sins.

And that's just a start, I'm sure I could come up with many other things if I spent even another minute. If I haven't mentioned it yet, I'm coming up on the end of a several month furlough. Time to head back home and to work on Tuesday morning. Unfortunately for me I absolutely fear flying. I abhor it. I read this verse last night and was comforted again relating to my anxiety and flying.

I know the Lord has been speaking to me lately through scripture about my fears. If you think of it, I'll take all the prayers you can stand to send my way Monday night and allllll day Tuesday and Wednesday... I try to remind myself that one way or another I'll get there.

So far I've learned, that by Jesus I can be freed from my fear. I've also learned thanksgiving is the key to my fears. I'm working on it.
