“Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.” (Psalms 18:50)
If you were imprisoned and your bail was set at a large amount of money you would feel hopeless if you nor anyone you knew had the money to get you out of jail. However, you discover that by some miracle, some mystery man comes and pays your bail. Feeling overjoyed and extremely grateful, you search out the one who set you free. You are desperate to find him, you are desperate to thank him, and to get to know this wonderful person better. The people of Israel were brought out of Egyptian bondage with a great deliverance, yet they never walked with their deliverer as Moses did. They didn’t seek God out. The greatest disappointment of a deliverer is when the person he frees does nothing to seek him out. Get to know the God that visited you in your darkest hour, the One Who broke the power of sin on your life, the One Who removed your dead mindset, set you free, and caused His resurrection power to kick in just when your strength gave out. Seek out your Deliverer, find Him, thank Him and develop a deeper relationship with Him. Stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ has made you free, and don’t be entangled with bondage again. The quickest way to return to a life of bondage is to lose sight of the One who set you free in the first place. Seek out your Great Deliverer and tell Him “Thank You”, get to know Him better, and make yourself available to do whatever He needs you to do.
Prayer: Father God, I am so thankful for Your mighty deliverance in my life. I seek You out and want to get to know You better. Show me the areas in my life where there remains strongholds and bondages and set me free. I love You. You are My Deliverer, Savior, Redeemer, and Hero. Help me forever stay reminded to show my deep gratitude for what You did for me. Help me stay free by Your power and never be bound again. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
(Read Galatians 5:1)
