This week God showed me what it really means to walk in His freedom.
Luke 4:18: The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind. To set at liberty those who are oppressed.
JESUS – The God that sets the captives free. #IWISHYOUWELL #LETFREEDOMREIGN
Do you know that when Jesus walked on earth He didn’t actually visit any prisons, when Jesus spoke about setting the captives free He spoke about those who were being oppressed in their minds.
We need to bring every thought into captivity and make it obey Christ! (2 Corin 10:5) #freeyourmind
You know when you think that you have gotten past a certain situation and then you see the person again and you become troubled? Not necessarily out of unforgiveness but just due to the fact that you just can’t get your head around the situation. I call this state of mind ‘oppression’ – Jesus wants to set people free!
My oppression stemmed from a very traumatizing and perplexing situation to say the least! It was supposed to be resolved by an “apology” but the person couldn’t even get that right. I knew at the time that the “apology” was fake because the person started with “I take responsibility …” like they were doing some sort of good deed.

I just left it there, I didn’t want to be involved in the situation any longer anyways it was just a very awkward and weird situation to be honest. At the end of the day if a person cannot see their own fault that’s not really my issue, its there’s.
Sometimes you just have to step over people and let them deal with themselves.

At first, this perplexing situation troubled me for some weeks. I sat down trying to work it out. I allowed it to bother me. I started replaying the situation in my mind, maybe I could’ve said this or maybe I could’ve said that. I just couldn’t get my head around it. These questions plagued my mind for weeks. I’m waking up in the morning feeling traumatized and perplexed and I’m saying God I just want to be free.
How God set me free:
- The first thing I did was I attended a revival service. When I arrived the Pastor was preaching a sermon called ‘Jubilee’ – which basically means freedom. God knew what He wanted me to hear that day #Godsgotyourback. At the end of the sermon the Pastor asked us to write down on a piece of paper anything thing that was troubling us so that we could pray and give it to God. He said it may not even be something that you did it may be something that someone did to you. So I wrote down the situation on the paper and I prayed and gave it to God. I felt a burden was lifted but part of me was still wrestling with trying to understand it.
- The following week the same Pastor came to my church and preached the same sermon ‘Jubilee’. After the sermon he carried out the same activity about writing the situation down on paper, this time I wrote down the names of the people involved. This time the prayer was very specific – I said God I am no longer trying to investigate this situation, I no longer need an explanation and I am no longer trying to seek understanding. – It was very specific.
Philippians 4:6 -7 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving make your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God that surpasses all understanding , will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

As I said the prayer God set me free. I didn’t need to go back to the person to get an explanation, I didn’t need to investigate any further I just let it go… finally I was free. No more waking up with questions running through my mind.
We always want to try and understand things, sometimes God just wants us to let it go. #yano
JESUS the God that sets the captives free
Once you make a decision to let something go and give it to God – He will give you freedom. He will set you free in your mind & spirit.
What has got you bound today? Are you replaying past situations in your mind and thinking what if, what if? Just write it down on a piece of paper and give it to God – we don’t always need to try and understand the how and why of every situation. Sometimes just pray about the missing gap. Your prayers will set YOU free. #prayforthem #prayforyourfreedom
Life becomes easier when you learn to accept an apology that you never got! Give thanks today for those that did you wrong, they unknowingly made you strong. #thanks 😉

The Merciful God of Prophecy
I am no longer in the grave therefore you are no longer bound for I have SET YOU FREE! I did not walk amongst you in vain, I did not come and die to leave you in bondage, but I came to GIVE YOU FREEDOM! And whom the Son sets free is free indeed. Now I have called you and I have given you a mandate and you must also go and set the captives free. Says the Lord.
