{Hurts} Captivity and Release

"And ye shall know the truth, 
and the truth shall make you free!" ~John 8:32

Hi!  Glad you stopped by my blog today!  May God use this post to encourage you and help you encourage others!

Hurts, they seem to abound in lives don't they? Maybe you have some, or know of someone else who does.  Well, God laid this on my heart to share today - how to turn the captivity of hurts into a captivating life of freedom!

Satan is a master binder and has no intention of a catch and release program regarding you and your hurts.  He wants you bound by hurts and stuck in captivity by them.  Release is not in his plan.  You being tortured is his goal.  Hurts, he knows, are a great form of inner torture.  Things people have said and done that cut you deep.  Things that you’ve gone through that you wish you could forget.  These are hurts that bind the soul (mind, will and emotions).

God, on the other glorious hand, has a release program!  It’s quite incredible too!  Normally the captive is at the mercy of it’s captor for release, but God has designed every life with a key for freedom!  Isn’t that incredible?!  No matter what “cage” or “imprisonment” of the soul you find yourself in - you have a way out!  You can get outta there before “torture” takes place!!  Wanna know what the key is?  Surrender and praise!  Yep, that’s right - Surrender and praise!  When you stop and realize WHO GOD IS and believe WHO HE IS - miraculous things happen!  When you let go of your hurts in His presence and give them to Him to take care of - the impossible is no more.  When you praise Him the “chains” fall off and the “cage” doors open!  That’s how incredible God is!! He gives us all we need through His Holy Spirit alive in us!  

When we get burdened and overwhelmed and captive by hurts - we feel alone.  We forget that we are NEVER alone!  Satan can bring about hurtful circumstances, but he can NEVER pluck us out of our Father’s healing hand!  Satan can convince us of something that isn’t true, and we can allow him to bind us by dwelling on those lies, but he can NEVER take away our key to freedom that God has given! (The Holy Spirit living in us!) 

GOD IS THE GOD OF FREEDOM AND LIFE EVERLASTING FOR YOU RIGHT NOW! :)  You bring Him pleasure. (It’s what you were created for!)  Seeing you in chains, breaks His heart.  He’s there whispering in your ear, with the dearest voice you’ve ever heard. “Use your key!”  “Surrender to and praise Me!”  “I want you to be free - the way I’ve made you to be!”  “I love you!”

"...That in all things he might have the preeminence." ~Colossians 1:18b

"Submit yourselves therefore to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." ~James 4:7

"Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty!" ~2 Corinthians 3:17

Blessings to you!  
Turn the captivity of hurts into a captivating life of freedom through surrender and praise!  (and help others to do the same!) :)
