This morning as I woke up these words from this song kept resonating through my mind “I’m no longer a slave to fear.” And as I sit at our big living room window looking out at the slightly foggy, mostly gray, wet dampness, as night turns into day, I felt led to listen to this song.
Immediately, Holy Spirit began to download a plethora of information. Over the past several weeks He has shown me that while the enemy has come to kill, steal and destroy, the drought IS over. that HE, the one true living God is restoring all the years that the enemy has stolen. That as a believer in Jesus Christ we have the authority to tell the mountains, that stand in our way and take our focus off of God, to move.
In quick succession the following verses came to mind.
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 1 Corinthians 3:17.
“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32.
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36.
I believe fear is one of the greatest weapons Satan uses to keep us bound and tied down. Fear immobilizes us. We know deep in our soul what God has called us to do, what our gifts are that we hear God, but fear, fear steps in and distracts us from what God’s calling is for us.
Here are some of the lyrics to No Longer Slaves
You unravel me with a melody
You surround me with a song
Of deliverance from my enemies
‘Til all my fears are gone
I am surrounded
By the arms of the father
I am surrounded
By songs of deliverance
As I continued to listen to this song I realized this is what deliverance feels like. It isn’t some big production with glitz and flashing lights. It is a subtle, gentle assurance like the petals of a rose as they drop one by one until there is nothing left.
Precious One, you are no longer a slave to fear. You have been set free.
