The fact is Jesus has already paved a way for your freedom in Him, which means freedom from your self, sin, old man nature and the corruption of this world. So the struggles we see in our lives running in loops and circles of same patterns of bondage exposes where we still need to see the truth of freedom Jesus made available to us. But the main question is do we want to be free and want it so much that we will approach it like its our only way forward ? If we are only going to “try” a method for sure something will not encourage you to keep your pursuit and will make you think its not working. Therefore, if the desire to be free in Jesus is fully pursued then you will see that freedom as you pursue Him.
