I’ve been going through a powerful study by Beth Moore in my quiet time called Breaking Free. On page 124, she wrote something I love:
I want to share something about women who live free that I hope will be encouraging. Most of them have experienced a serious stronghold or hindrance they have fought to overcome.
How do I know? Because every person I’ve met who really seems liberated to love, enjoy, and obey God as a lifestyle has been on the battlefield. They usually appreciate and apply victory more readily because they’ve experienced the misery of defeat first hand.
I rarely meet a person who has come to trust God fully without painfully confronting the fact that she can’t trust herself. Freedom Never Comes Easy.” p 124, Beth Moore.
This has been a great study for me, and I’m so excited, as I was writing this, I found Beth’s blog.
