In 2005, I wrote a book entitled, “Let My People Go!” I tell people it’s like a christian handbook that someone should give you at the altar. However, it’s actually a handbook that anyone could use at any time during their walk.
When the Lord spoke this book into being, He did so because He said His church was in bondage and He wants us free! I asked the Lord why the church is in bondage? He gave me two reasons. He said, “We don’t know truth or we don’t apply truth.” It became apparent early in the writing of this book, that these would be the two areas that He desired to speak to – knowing truth and applying truth.
I have had a front row seat watching this book unfold. I have been awed by the heart of God. There is much in this book that I would have never included if left up to me because…well, because I am human and often desire to take the “less painful” route. Sometimes “truth” hurts, but more often than not it is the surgery for the soul – a very necessary and needed operation. It is such “cutting” truth the Lord has chosen to pen in this book. He says it best in His own words, “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.”
God wants His church free and the route to freedom begins with truth – knowing and applying. I am grateful to God for the many truths that I have learned during this journey of the book. I will never be the same again. I hope as you read it that you too will be transformed by these truths and the loving heart God has for you.
