“Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.” (Psalm 2:3 ESV)
“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:8 ESV)
The definition of chains is: “A connected flexible series of metal links used for fastening or securing objects and pulling or supporting loads.”
Chains are also used to restrain. Dogs are put on chains to keep them from running away. But did you know the devil uses chains to bind us up to keep us away from God? You can’t see them, but they are there.
But God can free us from the chains:
“My chains are gone,My Chains are Gone
I’ve been set free.
My God, my Savior has ransomed me.
And like a flood His mercy reigns.
Unending love. Amazing grace.”
Amazing grace. God’s endless grace and mercy. He will move heaven and earth to free us from our chains. He loves us enough to come after us and free us from our bondage, whatever it may be.
Do you have chains today that you need released from? God can do it. Say this prayer:
“Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.”
Now live your life for God. Ask Him to fill you with his Holy Spirit. See what a difference it can make in your life.
Have a blessed day everyone.
