Freedom From Your Free Will

Galatians 5:13-14 (CEB)
You were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only don't let this freedom be an opportunity to indulge your selfish impulses, but serve each other through love. All the Law has been fulfilled in a single statement: Love your neighbor as yourself.

*We wake up  daily with the freedom to choose whatever we desire to do. God gave us ths ability to make our own choices, regardless to whether or not it lines up with the word. However, we have to ask ourselves if we want to suffer with just settling for God's permissible will or living through the perfect will. It's easy to settle, live a double life, accept your choices over His best, and find a quick solution out of selfishness. However, it can be trying but worth the wait to receive things or a person that is tailored to you; walk in love and think outside yourself to sacrifice for someone else; and submit completely to His will without yielding to temptations. Notice that one path helps you grow and move forward in life while the other allows complacency and a stationary lifestyle. Don't be so caught up in your own freedom to do what you please, and end up missing out on His ability to free you from your current situation.
