Early on in our pregnancy, the LORD gave us the word FREEDOM for and over this child. It's a powerful word. And it's already ministered to us. Even the freedom I have physically felt thru this pregnancy has been a living testimony of of this word. I've been looking at scriptures that teach and talk of freedom. Here are a few more:

Romans 8:20-21 (New International Version)

For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious FREEDOM of the children of God.

1 Corinthians 8:9
Be careful, however, that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak.

1 Corinthians 10:23
[ The Believer's Freedom ] "Everything is permissible"—but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible"—but not everything is constructive.

Galatians 5:13-14 (New International Version)

13You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature[a]; rather, serve one another in love. 14The entire law is summed up in a single command: "Love your neighbor as yourself."[b]

2 Corinthians 3:16-18 (New International Version)

16But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect[a] the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

Ephesians 3:10-12 (New International Version)

10His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, 11according to his eternal purpose which he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord. 12In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.

James 1:25
But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it—he will be blessed in what he does.

1 Peter 2:16
Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God.

One of our prayers for the baby, has been that he would understand and walk in God's freedom. Finding liberty in Christ is actually in submission to His law. That did not make since to me for years. How can you be free if you are choosing to surrender and yield? And yet it's true. God's law brings freedom. God's law also brings protection, truth, and guidance in our lives. He give us the choice. I pray that my son will know and choose God's truth freedom and not the freedom of this world. Will you join me in this prayer! Thank You All!
