Jesus, Break Every Chain That Binds Our Freedom
Let them see the full extent of Your power that is at work in those of us who believe, and may it be done according to Your might and power. Friends, it is this same might and resurrection power that God used in the Anointed One to raise Him from the dead and to position Him at His right hand in heaven. There is nothing over Him. Ephesians 1:19-20 The Voice
True-Lasting Freedom Is Undergirded By God’s Favor
4th Of July is a day to celebrate our freedom, which has always been founded upon the freedom God so graciously gave us with His Spirit and Truth. It is God’s great favor that has made this country a great country, by His favor and might we have been able to lead other nations and even be called the “Super Power” nation. This nation, The United States of America has been undergirded powerfully by the Favor of Almighty God. This is the root of our national freedom.
If the Spirit of the One who resurrected Jesus from the dead lives inside of you, then you can be sure that He who raised Him will cast the light of life into your mortal bodies through the life-giving power of the Spirit residing in you. Romans 8:11 The Voice
Our Freedom Is Bound
This July 4th, we have never been so close as a nation to losing our freedom in the way we have known it, the way we have enjoyed it since our inception. We have been deceived as a nation and we are living dangerously close to the freedom we have enjoyed being destroyed by our choices to turn away from the One, True God, Who is the power behind liberty and justice for all. The chains of our human condition are encircling our freedom and we don’t realize how bound up we have become as a nation. We are so close to losing our freedom and so blinded to the chains on us that are tightening around this country.
It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1 Amplified Bible
Free Will Choices
We have freedom in this country to make choices for our lives. This freedom is based on the freedom God gave every human being. We all have a free will choice. God sets before us His way, truth and will, yet He does not make us choose it. He has created us with a free will. We can either choose Him or reject Him. We can honor, respect and reverence Him with our free will choice, or we can chose the way of our enemy which is t0 kill, steal and destroy all liberty, civility, honor, respect and reverence for God and others.
Choose Life “See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity; in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that the Lord your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it. But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them, I declare to you today that you shall surely perish. You will not prolong your days in the land where you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess it. I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants. New Living Testament Deuteronomy 30:15-19
True Freedom Is Found In Jesus Christ
God gave us a free will, basically so we would choose Him, to obey Him out of love from our heart and not from His law. The law never really helped people find God heart to heart. They were more related to the law then they were Him. God wanted a relationship with His people, but His holiness stopped Him from being able to fellowship with sin. He so loved us that He sent His son Jesus to die for all of our sins and to make a way for us to have heart to Heart and spirit to Spirit relationship with Him. God has pursued a relationship with His people since Adam and Eve left the Garden of Eden. He has never stopped pursuing us, because He knows that true freedom is found in Him.
He who looks carefully into the faultless law, the of liberty, and is faithful to it and perseveres in looking into it, being not a heedless listener who forgets but an active doer who obeys, he shall be blessed in his doing, his life of obedience. James 1:25 Amplified Bible
Guard Your Heart From The Enemy Of Freedom
The enemy of our soul wants to bind us up. Jesus freed us from the law, but the enemy is continuously trapping us back into heartless things. The enemy is a stealer of our freedom and the corrupter of our free will. He is constantly looking for ways to chain us and steal the freedom Jesus bought for us. It is time to break these chains in Jesus name. It is time to ask God to forgive us for our turning away from His way, truth and life and it is time to fully face God. Guard your heart, do not give way to your human condition, give your life wholly-holy to God.
My son, pay attention to all the words I am telling you. Lean in closer so you may hear all I say. Keep them before you; meditate on them; set them safely in your heart. For those who discover them, they are life. They bring wholeness and healing to their bodies. Above all else, watch over your heart; diligently guard it because from a sincere and pure heart come the good and noble things of life. Proverbs 4: 20-23 The Voice
Pray It Up
Jesus, we pray You break every chain of dishonor, disrespect, irreverence, disobedience and wash this country clean of everything that keeps us from not being dependent upon You, loving You first in the all of our everything. Break every chain in Jesus name and restore us wholly-holy to You, Jesus. Restore the respect for Your Word. Restore the honor to Your name. Restore the reverence for Your ways. Restore the heart to heart relationship that You died to give us. Break every chain off this country, so we can truly be free, in Jesus name. God Bless America!
Live It Out
It begins with you, as you read this, take a moment to bow before God and free yourself of every chain that the enemy has bound up your freedom with. True freedom in Christ Jesus is contagious, so go and by the power of Jesus, free others and bind together with them in the corporate freedom in Christ, that God has destined us for. In Jesus Name. AMEN!
Jesus gave up His freedom and died for us so we could be wholly-holy free in Him. This act of incredible love of our Savior. We respond to by giving our freedom here on earth to Him, placing it in His hands to use to help Him further His Kingdom. It is in His Kingdom we will have a forever future and it is this freedom we celebrate most in this life.
Selah! Treasure Your God Given Freedom
I thank you Jesus for the freedom You have so graciously provided for this country. I thank you for the God Favor You have supernaturally provided for The United States of America. Jesus in these times, I pray You raise up an army of people who are wholly-holy Yours. Father God by Your power and might, I pray You break every chain of deceit, humanism, lawlessness, injustice, disobedience, off this country in Jesus name and return us back to you. I pray Your people would bow humbly, respectfully and reverently before You to pray that Your Favor will continue on this country, so we can continue to enjoy the freedom that You have so graciously, by Your mercy provided for us. May we realize that we are not free without You. Break every chain off this country that keeps us from putting You first. Restore respect, civility, nobility, honor, reverence, responsibility in You and to You first. Let it be so. God Bless America! Let It Be So! Keep Us The Land Of The Free Lord Jesus, Undergird Us With You Great Favor.
