Guilt, fear, worry, anger, doubt, hatred, bitterness…they are all things that imprison us in our own minds, blocking out any shot at full joy and peace of mind.
The enemy wants you to believe that you are on your own. He wants you to believe that the stronghold that has a grip on your throat is stronger than you are.
He is the father of lies!
You have a strong deliverer. The same God that is mighty enough to speak the universe into existence, control everything from the ant to the oceans, and breathe life back into his dead son is currently engaged in a personal battle for YOU. But the battle He is fighting is not with Satan. He has already beaten him. His battle is with US. We are the ones who choose to not be on his side. We are the ones who have the power to decide who we will serve. We are the ones who make the choice to take the hard path by rejecting the victory he is offering us.
Let Him set you free.
“Some sat in darkness and deepest gloom,
imprisoned in iron chains of misery.
They rebelled against the words of God,
scorning the counsel of the Most High.
That is why he broke them with hard labor;
they fell, and no one was there to help them.
LORD, help!” they cried in their trouble,
and he saved them from their distress.
He led them from the darkness and deepest gloom;
he snapped their chains.
Let them praise the LORD for his great love
and for the wonderful things he has done for them.
For he broke down their prison gates of bronze;
he cut apart their bars of iron.”
