Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: "Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole."
Growing up, because I had to wear a wig, swimming wasn't my favorite thing. I wanted to, but I didn't want anyone to see me bald so that pretty much took waterparks off my list of things to do. In fact, when 'swimming' events would come up, I would usually get pretty anxious!
The thing is I REALLY enjoy sports and adventure! I actually wanted to become a lifeguard, I thought they were SO cool! I even started to look up information on taking courses. It just didn't look possible, though...
Well, a couple of years later with the Lord's leading I took my wig off! I was free! I was now able to swim freely!
Soon after that, I ended up working at a camp in Maine. It was an outdoor leadership camp where the counselors had to be Waterfront (Can lifeguard at lakes, etc.) Lifeguard certified! The counselors all got to get certified together in a beautiful Maine lake!
That is REDEMPTION! Not only was I now a certified lifeguard, but it was abundantly more than I could have ever asked for! I had given up on the dream of becoming a lifeguard, but the Lord didn't!
Whatever has been stolen from your life, the Lord can and WILL redeem!
The devil may have thought that He won, but he hasn't! YOU have the victory through Christ! Your life is redeemed from the curse.
You may have forgotten but the Lord hasn't. Your desires are met in Jesus name!
