The other day I was praying (as most of my blogs start lol) and I was praying about a situation. God said, “Jasmine, you’re healed from that.” Honestly, I didn’t know what to do. This sounds weird, but it happens quite often. I’m used to struggling with something. I’m used to praying for forgiveness for this sin. I’m used to doing the wrong thing and not knowing why I do it.
Now I’m free. I don’t have to go back to that place if I don’t want to. Now what? I asked God just that. “Now what?” His answer was simple: “Heal others.”
We are not free from sin and bondage for the sake of freedom. God frees us so we can help others receive that same freedom. I know this surface level but I get so caught up in my problems and , but it’s so much deeper than that. We’re free, indeed. Free to lead others to freedom in Christ. Free to never turn around and look back. Free to run the race he called me to.
I’m reminded of the story of Jesus when he was speaking to his disciples. A crowd of about 5,000 people had gathered, and his disciples suggested that Jesus send them away to get some food. His response was, “You feed them.” When I think about the needs of those around me, I hear God saying, “You feed them.”
I am in no way healed from everything in my past but in the areas that I am, I am called to heal others. I am to “feed them” and help them gain freedom in that area.
God is good y’all!
