Joshua 9: 22-23 – 22 Then Joshua called for them, and he spoke to them, saying, “Why have you deceived us, saying, ‘We are very far from you,’ when you dwell near us? 23 Now therefore, you are cursed, and none of you shall be freed from being slaves—woodcutters and water carriers for the house of my God.”
People may assume that sin can free them from troubles, but in reality as we sin, we become slaves to our sin. In today’s passages Joshua said, “Why have you deceived us,?” As a result of their lies (sin), Joshua then told them, “Now therefore, you are cursed, and none of you shall be freed from being slaves”. Sin may give you temporary relief, but it will always be followed by permanent pain. The only way we can be completely free is to live in God’s love, God’s truth and God’s Word. It is He and only He that makes us free, gives us confidence and allows us to live free from the sin of this world.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
