A Large Place

Date: 13-Dec-2018 | Author: Pastor Norman Rawlings | Comments: 0

In Psalm 18:19 (KJV) it says: "He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me." This was King David talking but this is not the only place in the Bible that it talks about a large place, see also Psalm 31:8 and Psalm 118:5. God is no respecter of persons and we need to be assured that God is pleased with us and delights in each one of us.

So, what is this large place? It can mean a large piece of land but it also means freedom or liberty. In King David’s case above he was talking about freedom and release from his enemies. If we are right with God then we can enjoy his freedom - freedom from sin, guilt, bondage, condemnation, fear and on and on.

In Galatians 5:1 (KJV) we read about freedom or liberty: "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free”. Paul then goes on to encourage us not to return to the former bondage we were under before we asked Christ into our lives. In verse 13 he takes liberty a step further and says that we should use our freedom as an incentive to love and serve one another (and not ourselves). When we do that then we truly are in the large place that David was talking about.
