Shatters Bonds

Spread the love

One-minute read.

Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death and burst their bonds apart. Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man! For he shatters the doors of bronze and cuts in two the bars of iron.

Psalm 107:13-16

God doesn’t forget us, no matter our rebellious spirit; the Lord delivers us from sins when we turn to Him, redeeming us. The Creator has a plan for His creation, and when we allow Him to work in our lives, submitting to Him, we discover it. Redemption breaks the chains of sin and gives us hope for a better future.

Not too long ago, I received the most uplifting message from a reader. On her way home from work, she had every intention of doing something that wouldn’t please the Lord, what I don’t know. But the Holy Spirit stopped her, and she prayed in the parking lot, turning her evil desires over to God and asking Him to help her break the bonds. And the Lord did. Right in the middle of the parking lot, He set her free from the bonds that had held her captive and renewed her spirit. Singing His praises, she shared her victory with me.

We all can find victory in the Lord when we submit our lives to Him.  God will shatter the bonds that hold us captive, freeing us from sin. What we see as challenges, the Lord sees as future victories. Tapping into the Almighty’s power, He will free us from the chains that bind us and give us new life in Christ.   Seek God and His kingdom, experience the blessings that come from above, and discover life to the fullest in Jesus.


God shatters the bonds that hold us captive.


Lord, thank You for setting us free from our sins and giving us new life in Christ. Help us see the chains that bind us, giving them to You and discovering freedom. Let us submit our every desire to You, allowing You to transform our lives.
