Somewhere in our relationship with the Lord is a beautiful place called divine deliverance. Jesus released us from certain death through His redemptive work on the cross. Salvation is the first step in this process; it happens when we choose to accept what He died to give us. Eventually, as we continue to push into Him, we sense our emancipation from our past and the things Satan used to hold us captive.
As our new being emerges, we become less harsh, demanding, and loud. As some of these negative traits fall away from us, what’s left is something beautiful to behold—a radiant, glowing soul unencumbered and free to appropriate and appreciate intimacy with God.
