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.
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.
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
