SCRIPTURE: And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. Luke 13:12-13
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The Word of God manufactures a person unto freedom.
Previously, we saw that the power of God establishes a person in freedom from captivity by destroying the foundations of prisons and opening prison doors. The Presence or the Power of God is an answer to terminating the captivities of life.
In addition, there are other factors that can terminate captivity:
1. The power of prayer
When Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises unto God, the prison doors broke open (Acts 16:25). Prayer carries a captivity-terminating power.
2. The power of praise (Acts 16:25).
Paul and Silas sang praises, in addition and the prison doors could not hold them anymore. Praise is a captivity terminator. You can praise your way out of the bondage of life.
3. The Power of the Word (Psalm 107:20).
The knowledge of the truth of God’s Word makes a person free. (John 8:32, John 17:17). So, the Word manufactures a person unto freedom.
4. The Power of the Anointing
The anointing destroys yokes (Isaiah 10:27).
5. The power of prophetic impact
The captivity of a person can be terminated when God’s prophet over his life decrees against the captivity. In Luke 13:10-13, Jesus declared, woman thou art loosed…, laid hands on her, electrocuted the demon of paralysis, electrified her back and she got straightened on the spot.
I declare into your life today, every yoke holding you down is broken, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: The Word manufactures a person unto freedom.
1. Engage the secrets mentioned in our study today and expect a captivity turnaround.
2. Be intimately and consistently connected with God in worship.
3. Vehemently refuse a life of captivity.
PRAYER: Lord, open my eyes to the truth that will guarantee my freedom from every captivity around my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
