I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness. (John 12:46 NIV)
How is Satan trying to keep you or someone you know bound? Satan likes to play harsh. He spins a large sticky web catching all victims he can. Many situations overwhelming that blind, unknowingly about to be trapped. A web of deceit designed by Satan. One step in and we could be stuck, wrapped in darkness. Just like an insect caught in a spider’s web. The sole purpose capturing an insect is to be devoured by the spider. Satan wants to devour as many as possible.
The enemy is speaking lies to you every second you are in captivity. With every step towards freedom, we’re pulled backwards. More overwhelming the situation, more apt we’re pulled backwards. Eventually, all energy is drained leaving no effort to escape. Have you ever felt this way?
We have great news! Our escape is not by our own strength! We have the power of the Holy Spirit working within. As children of the most High, Jesus’s power trumps any overwhelming situation. His hand reaches out saying, “Take hold!” As will power builds within, the enemy pants louder in an attempt to keep us bound. In a split second a voice sounds like a faint whisper captures your attention. We recognize the voice of Jesus. A glimpse of light is seen. It’s our turn to reach for His hand. The enemy slaps your hand away. Our mind stays focused on freedom and loosening all tracks of bondage. Light shines brighter, darkness recedes. Belief we can be free builds strength to push forward. Thank you, Jesus! When we make up our mind to reach and take hold of Jesus’s hand, God’s power takes over.
Now is the time to get into the word of God, the Bible. The full victory is not when you get out of the web. The full victory comes when we have a solid foundation not to step back into the web! Then you will look back and say…Amazing! Light illuminates!!! Jesus is our answer; He is our source-our strength to step out from any darkness. This can be the day all bondages are broken!
Dear Jesus, As the new year begins, I pray right now over each reader stuck in their very own web. Give them strength to try one more time, denouncing lies of Satan, hearing your amazing voice in a whisper. Allow courage to build. Jesus, you are faithful to meet our every need. Send the appropriate help each one needs.
