Yeshua! Yeshua! You set captives free!

“…Yeshua! Yeshua! You set captives free!...”
When I was a boy, I would go out into our pasture at night and cry out to the Lord to please change me…but nothing ever happened…or at least I could not see that anything had happened. Even then, He was preparing the way of escape for me from the things that help me in captivity. Fear. Same sex attraction. Pride. Each of those captors was like a prison with walls a little boy could not see a way out of…and even as a young adult man those walls still seemed too immense to penetrate. The truth is that even when I was a little boy, my Savior was at work using even my failures to bring me to the place where I could see the way out. Of course, it is much easier to see how He did that when looking back – and not so easy to see when you’re in the middle of the bondage! Even though I could not see the deliverance during those pasture ‘cry sessions’ I can look back now and see that He DID hear me. His deliverance came in His time…and since He is a good God who only wants my best, then He set me free just in time!
Are there any requests for freedom you have laid before the Lord but have not seen the deliverance yet? Don’t give up just yet. Your deliverance may be just around the corner. Take time today to thank Him for your deliverance even before you see it!
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, Because the LORD has anointed me To bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to captives And freedom to prisoners
