“…The reason the Son of God was made manifest (visible) was to undo (destroy, loosen, and dissolve) the works the devil [has done].” 1 John 3:8, Amplified).
Here we see God’s love and His restorative nature. In my own life, it seemed as though the enemy had taken spray paint and sprayed graffiti over everything I deemed as precious. Everything appeared destroyed and beyond repair, but that was all in my mind. The enemy wants you to think that things will never be the same for you. “You’ve really messed up this time,” he’ll say. He will try to make you feel as though it’s all over and this is the end of your story. But it’s not over. It’s not the end. God has a better ending for your life; far greater than you can ever imagine. His ending for you is victory through Jesus (see 2 Corinthians 2:14).
Whatever damage has been done in your life because of sin, God can undo the work of the enemy and bring total healing and restoration. Say out loud, “This is not how my life will end. God has a better ending for me.” Yes, He does. It is a statement of faith that can become your reality if you believe it. God’s will for you is total deliverance from that addiction, from that debilitating fear, from anything that is causing you so much pain and damage in your soul and body.
God’s not condemning you. He wants to set you free. It is our own feelings of guilt that make us feel condemned, but God is greater than our feelings. Will you surrender all of yourself to Him today? Will you let Him heal you?
Say this prayer from your heart:
Dear Lord, I give You my life. I repent for all sin and rebellion against Your will and I ask Your forgiveness. I realize I can’t set myself free. I need You God to deliver me. Loosen the grip that (name the sin) has on my life. I cancel and renounce every right I gave the enemy in my life and I yield completely to Your Holy Spirit alone. I plead the blood of Jesus over my life and its cleansing power. Sanctify me and set me apart for Your divine use. Teach me Your ways and help me to apply Your Word in every area of my life. Thank You God for freedom, for healing and for restoration. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
