You’ve Been Released, Now What?

You’ve Been Released, Now What?

As a child of God, you have many concerns since you’ve been released. Peter wrote that you can throw your concerns, worries, and anxieties onto God. Yes, Jesus, wants them off of your shoulders and out of your mind. He knows what you need already. You can trust that Jesus will provide for you.


Since you don’t have to worry, what should you do? Trust, be thankful, and look for ways that God is providing for you. In addition, ask the Father to baptize you with the Holy Spirit. Every day, ask Jesus to fill you with the Holy Spirit, Who is the Promise of the Father. He is your Comforter and Helper. He gives you the resurrection power of Christ. He fills with peace, joy, hope and love.
