The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save (Zephaniah 3:17a)
My family had a Jack Russell named Eddy. He was such an interesting dog. He traveled with us leading worship and speaking so much that whenever he saw that big white trailer being loaded with instruments, he’d go ahead and jump in the truck ready to go on the road. He loved the youth groups. And they loved him so much that they would have me sign his name along with my name when giving autographs!
Before we could start taking him on the road with us, we had to get him trained to walk with a leash. Training went smoothly. One day we noticed that he had gotten so used to the lifestyle of walking with the leash on, that even when he didn’t have it on he would follow closely and never leave our side. It was hilarious how he would move along with every move we made when he didn’t need to.
Because he assumed he was leashed, he was acting as though he was caught and couldn’t move in the freedom he had
The enemy tries that with us. He gives the allusion that we’re caught with no way out. Like Eddy, we get used to the lies and the lifestyle and walk like leashed dogs…..following his movement.
Turn to him in all the authority the name Jesus stands on and declare NO MORE!
Jesus came and paid the price and broke those chains!
Victory and freedom are yours
He is with you
HE is mighty
HE is mighty to save
