This really hit home with me today as I moved into the personal application of my time in God's Word. I'm always asking God to reveal to me the significance of His Word in my own life.
Today is exactly 2 months from the detection of the tumor on my brain. November 22, 2010. For a few years now, I have felt that I've been a slave to cancer. Every major decision that Brian and I make has some tie to cancer. Bondage. Not the same type as the Israelites faced, and likely not the kind that you are facing, but bondage, nonetheless.
Not until this third diagnosis have I truly been able to give this enslaving attack of the enemy to God. Not until now have I been able to see this process through God's lens. Not until now have I truly been able to give it to God, believing that, although the process is long and daunting, His promises will abundantly exceed my expectations. A ceremonial day. A day to remember what He's been doing for His children since the beginning.
Are you experiencing bondage today? Have you fallen slave to something or someone that seems impossible to shake? Trust God to deliver you. He's more experienced than anyone or anything in the business.
