2 Ways We Need Freedom

Isn’t it time we saw freedom and release in our lives and loved ones!?! All of us have seen people chained up for years. We feel sorry for them and angry at the enemy about it. Here’s some insight from the good book 🙂 . . .

Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,

Captivescaptives are chained up because of attacks against them – decisions others have made. They’ve been kidnapped – taken from their home in God – exiled, because they believe lies and deception about themselves.

Prisonersprisoners are locked up because of decisions they’ve made. In other words, a prisoner likes their sin or their unforgiveness enough to be hanging on to it. Notice in the Scripture that a prisoner requires a release from darkness – there’s a further step here than with the captives. This is someone who can’t forgive themself and is believing lies about who they are instead of agreeing with God’s amazing and majestic truth.

Freedom for captives

  1. Agree with who God says we are, what He says about us.
  2. Join in prayer of agreement with someone else in Jesus name.
  3. Replace those horrible thoughts with the outrageously good thoughts God has about you.

Release from darkness for prisoners

  1. Agree to become obedient to God’s plan first, before we start winning. –> It’s like this, we can want healing from liver disease all we want, and we could even get healing from liver disease through prayer, but if we don’t stop eating/drinking things that destroy our liver – it’s going to come back worse – we’re a prisoner of our own choices. In other words, a prisoner has to want to be done with the sin issue in order to get free. The most common sin issue that locks up prisoners is unforgiveness – we have to wrap those people in love and blessing every time they enter our mind – every time. No exception.
  1. Join in prayer of agreement with someone else in Jesus name.
  2. Replace the darkness with the outrageously good thoughts God has about you.
