Yesterday I traded in my old Windows Mobile Phone for an iPhone, and immediately I felt like I have been released from the throws of mobile phone captivity. This iPhone is so easy to use, so nice to read, and just so, well, so freeing. Gone are the days of a user interface that was odd, a misbehaving ‘touchscreen’, and the limits of only having access to limited applications. I want to shout from the mountaintops, or maybe just tweet it and post it to Facebook!
Yes, freedom. When bonds are released and new limits are opened it is such a fantastic feeling. The feeling of freedom and the joys of freedom are something I write about quite often – because it is so nice. However, when it comes to spiritual freedom, sometimes, we want to stay in our bondage. But look at this, the creator of the world says, give me your bondage:
7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7 New International Version (NIV)
This spiritual liberation, that comes oddly enough though a complete surrender is a really good thing. It makes the joy of the iPhone look like the joy you can get from a lead balloon.
Cast you anxiety on him and enjoy freedom. (oh , and then tweet about it!)
11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. John 15:11 New International Version (NIV)
