Everything that has you in bondage and enslaved in your life must be laid down and given over to God. You must lay your burdens on the cross. This is the season to put it on the cross and leave it there, never to pick it up to carry it again. Letting go of it all and turning it over to Jesus who said in Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” He already paid the cost when he went to the cross. So many times we tell God we are giving this over to Him and then we go back and pick it back up like we couldn’t trust Him to carry the burden for us. Those burdens our heavy and it cost us a lot when we don’t truly allow God to carry them for us. It cost us joy, happiness, peace and so many other things including blessings that we miss out on because we are so focused on the burden and not the solution to the burden who is Jesus Christ. Whatever you are still burdened with leave it with God and pray to Him to help you to not pick it back up again. Today choose to walk in freedom, because Jesus already paid the price with His life so you would. Galatians 5:1 – The Messiah has set us free so that we may enjoy the benefits of freedom. Keep on standing firm in it, and stop putting yourself under the yoke of slavery again. God lives in you and where God is there is freedom. 2 Corinthians 3:17 – Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Lord’s Spirit is, there is freedom.
Heavenly Father, thank you for giving me your word and for breathing life into my very being. Reveal to me how to walk in total freedom from my past, my wounds, my hurts and my sin. Let nothing that currently has me in bondage be concealed anymore but bring light into every dark place in me where I try to hide hurtful thoughts and memories. Break me free from every chain, shackle, generational curse and prison that I allowed myself to live in to be no longer attached or attracted to me. In Jesus Mighty Name I Pray, Amen!
