Within our world, the perspective of freedom is limited to a life lived without any limitations. Thereby Christians are often seen as people who live by constraints, sets of rules, and limited freedom. The Word, however, says that Christ has brought and bought freedom to all those who choose Him (Gal. 5:1).

Although we live with a free will to choose, God is introducing to us that freedom is often better experienced within limitations. In the Garden of Eden, God gave Adam and Eve free will (Gen. 2:16) yet limited them by commanding them not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. By not living within those limitations, far more consequential constraints are placed on man by the added responsibility of now having to discern between good and evil. 

Godly instruction is not set in place based on the emotional comfort we find in them; we have to trust God (Prov 3:5) that all the things He has commanded us to live by will work out for our good. That indeed, we are more free adhering to these limitations, as they empower us to truly live. What the world determines freedom, God exposes as slavery, and the more we walk with Him, the more visible the destructive force of a false sense of freedom becomes. 

He has come to set the captives free, and He has given us His Word as the manual to do so. Trust God that you will find true freedom within the powerful instruction of His Word. world. We have the free will to choose Him.
