We all need deliverance at one time or another. That’s because no matter how spiritual we are, we’re still made of flesh. And no matter how perfectly we live, we still have an enemy who is trying to erect strongholds of evil in our lives. God wants us free from everything that binds, holds, or separates us from Him.
Jesus came to set us free from all the things that bind us. He came to lift us above the enemy who wants to destroy us. God hears the groaning of those who are held captive. If you cry out to Him, He will set you free. And “if the Son make you free, you shall be free indeed” (John 8:36).
No matter how strong the thing is you’re struggling with, God’s power to deliver you is stronger.
Dear Lord, I know that I can’t see all the ways the enemy wants to erect strongholds in my life. I depend on You to reveal them to me. Thank you that You come to “proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed” (Luke 4:18). Without You, Lord, I am held captive by my desires, I am blind to the truth, and I am oppressed. But with You comes freedom from all that. My times are in Your hand; deliver me from the hand of my enemies, and from those who persecute me.
In Jesus name I pray
Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
For He looked down from the height of His sanctuary, from heaven the Lord viewed the earth, to hear the groaning of the prisoner, to release those appointed to death.
Psalm 102: 19-20
