Remember a time when you were driving and a fly kept banging his head against the windshield. He saw and felt the sunlight outside, but he was trapped.
The last time this happened to me I said to the fly, “Hey there, you’re never going to get through that thick glass. You’re only hurting yourself. Why are you so stupid?”
What did it take to help that fly? ME! I opened the side window, waved my hand and the fly sailed away, free again as it flew into the fresh air and sunlight outside.
Sometimes I wonder if I am any different than that fly. I want to see the light in a given situation. I want to be free. But like the fly, I don’t have the power. I’m too wrapped up in my old habits, my daily lifestyle and my sins. Just like that fly, I keep banging my head and going nowhere!
Only Jesus can roll down the window that needs to come down in my life, raise his hand in blessing and set me free.
The world often takes me captive…..But it is Jesus who sets me free.
Jesus, you are the Way, the Truth and the Life for me.
What window does Jesus need to open in YOUR life to set YOU free from YOUR old habits and YOUR sins?
IF YOU WANT TO BE FREE, JUST KEEP DOING WHAT JESUS WANTS YOU TO DO!
