Isaiah 10:27 (NIV) In that day their burden will be lifted from your shoulders, their yoke from your neck; the yoke will be broken because you have grown so fat.
As Laide started applying her heart to the word of God and allowing it to transform her by the renewing of her mind, she observed that she started knowing the Lord and was now able to discern His will(see Rom 12:2). She also observed that because of this, she was now too big for the chains that held her bound in the past. The yokes in her life were now broken because she had grown spiritually too fat for them. This spiritual fatness came because she had been feasting on the word of God (she continued in His word).
Jesus told those who believed in Him that if they continued in His word, they would be His disciples indeed, and then they would know the truth, and the truth will set them free (see John 8:31-32).
Those who continue in His word are those who are truly the Lord’s disciples, and they are the ones who can know Him who is the Truth (see John 14:6, 1 John 5:6). This knowledge brings spiritual liberty. The Truth is a reality that is only encountered in [the knowledge of] Christ. This is eternal life; it is the reality that makes all other things but shadows in the light of His presence.
Go into today remembering that abiding in His word and letting it change the way you think is the way to know Him and walk in spiritual liberty.
Prayer: Ask the Lord to expose you to more resources that will help you abide in His word and grow in the knowledge of The Truth.
The more of God’s truth(word) you know, the more impossible it will be for you to be bound.
