Butterflies & Liberation

The butterfly effect. One small flap of a butterfly's wings in Japan could be the beginning stages of a hurricane which will hit Florida (OK - maybe not geographically correct, but you get the idea). It's a great concept: just one small creature can do so much damage with a minor movement.

Liberation: "Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom." 2 Corinthians 3:17

If the Spirit of the Lord reigns in us, we are liberated. We are free. If we declare our freedom by one small action, God has set freedom all around us. One small seed that the Lord plants in others through using us could be the beginning stages of a valley filled with dandelions. With one bold step, we could create a hurricane in this nation. A hurricane of freedom and liberation.

That butterfly will never see the outcome of its one flap; he probably won't even realize he can do something so great. That's the beauty of weakness. Don't be discouraged if you don't see the outcome of a nation liberated from their shackles. Be encouraged by the grace our Father offers us. Let Him reign in you with such strength that you create a hurricane within a mile of you... it doesn't have to be across the world.

Liberation. Freedom. Deliverance. Salvation. A challenge. Opportunity. What will you do with it?
