Clutter is overwhelming to me. I can’t stand it, and when I see it, I need it to go away! However, some people love that kind of environment and feel comforted by having all their belongings surrounding them. I’m in the process of downsizing the clutter in the office because the first of the month is upon us, and rents from my father-in-law’s commercial properties are beginning to come in, and his office manager is out, which means I have to be in the office to help!
I am a free person, meaning God has set me free from encumbrances of the mind like fear, trauma, and rejection. Christ-followers are all set free, though most don’t accept it. The office I’m working in is not free; it’s cluttered, but I’m going through it bit by bit, clearing out the debris so that it can function. If it were a person, it would be debilitated because of all the clutter.
If you are like this office, it’s time for you to ask God for help. Let him take you from hoarding your past to living in a clean and clear environment so that you function properly as a Christian.
For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1
