Topic: Keys To Terminating Captivity [Seeds of Destiny 13 February 2019 Devotional]
SCRIPTURE: If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. – John 8:36
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: No matter the negative situation you might be passing through, God is interested in bringing it to an end.
Previously, we saw that there is no night situation of life that has no end. This means, no matter the negative situation you might be passing through, God is interested in bringing it to an end. God is interested in setting His people free. That is why He sent His Son, Jesus to die in order to put an end to every form of captivity in our lives.
Now, what are the keys to terminating captivity?
- Being Born Again
Captivities are broken when we surrender our lives to Jesus Christ. The life in Christ is redeemed from every curse and bondage (Galatians 3:13). When we come to Jesus Christ, every ancestral power over our lives is broken; this is because the Blood of Jesus is stronger than the blood of your ancestors (1 Peter 1:18-19, Colossians 1:12-13).
- The Sent Word
The sent Word is key to breaking captivity and bondage (Psalms 107:20). Sometime ago, there was a brother who always had nightmares and could not sleep. While studying the Scripture, he came across a passage where the Bible says that God gives His beloved sleep (Psalms 127:2b). Instantly, the demons of nightmare disappeared. The Sent Word is a terminator of captivity.
- The power of praise
Praise‘>Praise breaks the gates of brass and cuts the bars of iron in sunder (Ps 107:15-17). The power of praise set Paul and Silas free from the bondage of captivity. As they praised God, the doors were opened and the bands on their hands were loosed (Acts 16:25).
When a man praises God, He deals with every bondage and chains around his life.
Remember this: No matter the negative situation you might be passing through, God is interested in bringing it to an end.
- Make up your mind to dedicate your life to Christ
- Engage the power of God’s Word and intensive, explosive and explorative praise to break bondages.
PRAYER: O Lord, I dedicate my life to You. Give me the grace to engage the power of the Word and praise to break every form of bondage in my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
