2) fancied liberty
a) licence, the liberty to do as one pleases
3) true liberty is living as we should not as we please
Do we live as we should, and not as we please? I think about the earthly pleasures we have at our disposal and realize that we are called to something higher. Indeed, it is to be our way of life as Christians. Paul wrote about this in his first letter to the Thessalonians.
Many of us are concerned about the outcome of the election. Indeed, some of us are distressed. As we live our lives in the way Christ intended, we will find the true Spirit of liberty. Not just regarding the election, but in other matters as well.
2) metaph. oppression, affliction, tribulation, distress, straits,
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." ~ Jeremiah 29:11-13
