Have you ever stood with hands raised toward the sky and stretched and taken in a deep breath? As muscles loosen and the body is filled with fresh air, the body in its own way says thank you, I needed that. You are able to move and the mind clears up – you have just become refreshed.
I have been experiencing this very sensation but this time it is from the inside from my soul.
When I take time to sit and ponder the simple obedience of the 7 Noahide Laws and simple trust in my Creator my soul says thank you, I needed that.
The simple observance of the 7 Laws is like a morning stretch and simple trust is like taking a deep breath, bringing in fresh air – the soul is refreshed, it can move and think clearly.
Take some time to meditate on these few passages.
Ecclesiastes 7:29 “But, see this I find: God made man simple but they sought intrigues.”
Jeremiah 17:7-8 “Blessed is the man the man who trust in God; God will be his refuge. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream.”
Psalm 23:2 “In lush meadows He lays me down, beside tranquil waters He leads me.”
When I ponder the 7 Laws and trusting in God – like a deep breath, my soul releases a voice that says, “I am free” – I am free from religion, I am free to be the best me I can be, I am free to walk unhindered with my Creator. I am free to walk with God and man the way I was created to.
The 7 laws are not chains, they are the protection of the Creator, our refuge.
“ beside tranquil waters He leads me.”
The 7 Noahide Laws and trust in God are tranquil waters.
Stretch, breath and be free.
