Freedom & Liberty- Part 3

Luke 4:18, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because he hath anointed Me to…preach deliverance to the captives.”

The third aspect of freedom/liberty was defined as liberation and exemption from imprisonment. A prisoner is one who is held captive by something or someone; they are confined and detained—their freedom is limited. And so it is with the one on my heart; but praise to God, according to Psalm 102:20, the Lord looked down from heaven “to hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death.”

Dear Heavenly Father,

You hear the inner groanings of this precious one and you are willing and able to loose them from destruction. I pray that their heart will soften and their mind will not be held in deception. It is you alone who can fully deliver them into true freedom—spiritual freedom—to humble themselves as a child before you. Please lead them by your Spirit to the Truth and His power to overcome—

In the holy and powerful name of Jesus, Amen!
