Comfortable In Our Bondage

One of the benefits of my attempts to get up earlier in the morning has been the opportunity to expand my quiet time to include some daily devotionals. Today’s entry was a thought provoking one. I was immediately drawn in by the title – “Comfortable In Our Bondage.” Look at a few of these quotes that the author posed from a study of Exodus 5:

“It is possible for people to become so accustomed to their bondage that they resist efforts to free them.”

“When God sets out to free us, there will often be a price we will have to pay. Grief can be a terrible form of bondage, yet we can become comfortable with it. We can grow so comfortable with fear that we don’t know how to live without it.”

We should all ask ourselves the questions this devotional ended with:

1) Have you been lulled into a comfortable relationship with your bondage?
2) Do you fear change more than you fear God?
3) Are you willing to allow God to do what is necessary in order to free you?
