What does it mean to be free.
Oh I wanna be free, God I need to be free.
My name is free, but you can call me peer because I operate when pressured. I am free cause I lead the mind to feel that his thoughts needs others approval. How can I come out from among them and be separate that is not how I operate. Peer say, don’t you trust me? but peer don’t want me to be free to have an opinion on a matter. They say, come on nah, this is the way, but I know what God say. I am free to be who God called me to be even if it’s separated from the “norms” of this world. A world that says promiscuity and pride is the way but what does my God say. So do I give into the pressure and not consider what Jesus will do in this matter. No! Who the son sets free is free indeed, free to have his opinion when peer is beginning to give pressure. True friends, will respect my position. Not pressure me to be “free” in what they consider freedom.
My friend be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Yes your mind, the place where everything begins, begins to press and hold, thoughts that soon becomes words and actions that release either heaven or hell.
So don’t be ashamed! Be confident in who you are in Christ! There is freedom in doing what is right. So when peer comes to give you pressure stand up in what you believe. If you acknowledge Jesus before others, He will also acknowledge you before his Father. “Me acknowledge me, I so important?” If you let peer draw you near, near to the thought of disowning Jesus in pressure he will disown you before his father.
Don’t you know that peer pressure is temptation? Piecing the mind seeking to cause separation from truth. So when peer keeps coming and coming to come, say look nah! step, move let me pass, I will be your friend but you can’t be my boss! Do you know who I am and to whom I belong. I was made in his image and likeness nothing you can say will change that, so stop try!
I wanna be free!
Bring the real, final note.
Be kind to one another, as Luke 6:31 says “Treat others the same way you want them to treat you”. If you don’t like someone to gossip on you, you don’t do it. If you don’t like someone to mistreat you or laugh at you, you don’t do it. Don’t succumb to anyone telling you what to do just because others are doing it and its “normal”. Remember that God is still on his throne, remember his words.
A written piece on peer pressure, voicenote to bring words alive is pending, hope the message is still received though. love you, bye.
