Picture the prison walls where Paul writes this letter. Go there. Enter the heart of this great apostle. The personal joy he shares overflows beyond the walls of his cell. Nothing on an external level can take away this joy.
Let it be the same for you. Whatever may be pressing about you, holding you hostage, inner freedom is being offered you at this very moment. To experience this, take each phrase of glory in this chapter and let it turn your “prison cell” into a prayer cell—a space of energy that launches you into total freedom, beyond all that would hold you captive.
Nothing need change in your circumstances. Only your heart needs to be open to free, transforming grace.
What are these?
The boundless riches of Christ v. 8
Confidence through faith in You v. 12
Rooted and grounded in love v. 17
Filled with the fullness of God v. 19
