“For long ago I broke your yoke And tore off your bonds; But you said, ‘I will not serve!’ For on every high hill And under every green tree You have lain down as a harlot. Jeremiah 2:20
The Israelites were slaves to Egypt for over 400 years, then God freed them through Moses. Even though God “broke their yokes” and “tore there bonds” they were still rebellious and refused to be faithful. God even compares them to a harlot!
Fast forward and God sent his only Son Jesus to once agree free us from the slavery and bondage of sin. But do we serve him or are we still the rebellious harlots that refuse to acknowledge our Heavenly Father? Problem is when things are going good, we don’t acknowledge God at all. But as soon as a disease or struggle sets in, we immediately blame God.
Is this a true relationship with your Redeemer? Are we really being faithful to God when the only time we acknowledge him is through pain and tragedy? God has given us everything, he has freed us from the bondages and slavery of sin and death. The only thing he wants in return is your heart!
But now we have been released from the Law, having died to that by which we were bound, so that we serve in newness of the Spirit and not in oldness of the letter. Romans 7:6
We were bound to the Law through the wages of our sins. We are all guilty yet God freed us from that bond through Jesus Christ. Now we will serve God through the anointing of the Holy Spirit! Let God break your yoke and chains today in Jesus Name Amen!
