Ten Things To Pray For In The Year 2014: #7 Freedom From Bondage (Part 2)


Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he (or she) is a new creation…old things are passed away, behold, all things are become new.”

God’s agenda for you is that you live an abundant life, free from worry, being the person God created you to be.

God wants to free you from anything that has captured you, enslaved you, or is repressing or oppressing you. His answer to this problem is deliverance.

In the Old Testament, the children of Israel were delivered from slavery in Egypt.

In the New Testament, Paul and Silas were delivered from prison when God caused an earthquake to break open their prison doors.

God has delivered and set free so many people, there are a great a cloud of witnesses…

Below, I have included testimonies of six people I know who have been delivered by God:

1. He was so addicted to hard drugs that the authorities placed him in a mental ward, diagnosing him as “mentally insane.” But in his “cell,” he called out to Jesus Christ, and his mind became clear, totally restored, and clearer than ever before. Now he pastors a large church in Ohio.

2. He was born on the wrong side of the tracks, in the wrong city, and got caught up into a whole mess of trouble with the wrong company. As his life spiraled out of control, this young man ended up killing a man in a botched robbery attempt. But then one day, he reached out to find God, and God was there. God delivered him, freeing him from the life he had been living. He lives today as a testimony to what God can do. This man who once killed another is a joy-filled gentleman who shares the truth with others. If you met this man today, you would be amazed how different he is from before God freed him from sin.

3. She was an abused wife…not once, but several times. Men treated her like dirt, but she tried to love. In this horrible situation, she called on God, who delivered her. She went from an abused, beaten woman to a mighty  woman of God, teaching the truth from the pulpit.

4. She was a Christian trapped in a marriage going downhill fast. Her husband turned into a controlling psychopath. At one point he tried to put her in a mental institution. She cried out to God and God heard her cry, delivering her from that crazy man. He left her. In time, God blessed her with restoration- two more children, a loving husband, and honors way beyond her wildest dreams.

5. He came to us late Friday night. He was an unexpected guest…but it was a divine appointment.

I met a Christian brother at his dorm room and the two of us were talking about campus ministry…when in walked some guy in a T-shirt. he started telling us about white magic and some pseudo-religious satanic stuff. My brother in Christ, Peter Jay, carried his Bible everywhere and he had it cracked open. The guy asked us if there was a “way out of this white magic stuff.” He was scared. We talked a long time. We prayed with him. He repented and called out to God, asking God to forgive his sins, and make him a new creation in Christ, living in a right relationship with God daily. Later that night, an emboldened young man joined us as we confronted what he had been up against. God set him free to live life abundantly!

6. She had issues, I could tell. She gravitated toward me. I prayed with her. She confessed that she had had an abortion and could not forgive herself. She believed that God would not forgive her, so she went and did some stupid stuff. She was so oppressed by evil spirits that she had trouble seeing, had a massive headache, and thought evil thoughts. I called the elders together and we prayed. Late in the night, she came to her right mind. As she woke, she said she saw a huge angel in the living room. Her other thoughts were very clear, her reasoning level actually much sharper than before, and she was totally at peace. God had delivered her from bondage!

These are just six examples of people I know and have known in my life, and events and situations as they actually happened. God will free you from any evil, anything that has you bound- like a chained jail inmate. Just call out to God and ask in Jesus’ name in faith. You too can have a witness like these six…and be free.

“They overcame by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.”

  1. Tim Shey says:

    The Lord has delivered me of probably hundreds of demons over the years. I am very grateful for the power of the Holy Ghost in my life. The anointing breaks the yoke of sin.
