2016-08-27 - Releasing the Shackles
The four walls are closing in-the same feeling every day. You feel cornered, like living in a cage, with no hope of change. You are a prisoner of circumstance.
We may forget our cushy life, when a sudden wave of doom hits and we don’t know the remedy. Jesus is the answer. Jesus acknowledged the Lord's anointing on Him "to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners." (Isaiah 61:1)
He has the ability to raise us from our circumstance. (See Luke 4:16-20) These facts can remain words in the Bible, or can manifest as real in our life, when we seek Jesus and His power.
God, don't let this prisoner mentality remain a part of my life. I want to fully experience the freedom awaiting me. I'm grateful You have a way out.
