Give the love that liberates

Now the Lord it the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty(emancipation from bondage,freedom)–2 Corinthians 3:17

Love is liberating. It provides a sense of belonging and a sense of freedom. Love does not try to control or manipulate others or reach fulfillment through the destiny of others.

Jesus said that He was sent by God to proclaim liberty. As believers, that is what we are meant to do also–to give people the freedom to fulfill God’s will for their lives, not to bring them under our control.

I have discovered that trying to make people do what I want them to do shuts the door to God being able to speak to their hearts. We need to release the people in our lives to be all they can for God’s glory, not our own.

Set people free and they will love you for it. Don’t be manipulative. Instead, learn to let God be in control of their lives.

A  person who has great love is one who is able to release people and things. Today, don’t  be a person who controls, be the one who freely gives the liberating love that only comes from God.

From the book “Promises for our everyday lives”
