TOPIC: DELIVERANCE FOR THE LAWFUL CAPTIVE
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 49:24-26
OUTLINE: MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL 5TH MARCH 2021 TODAY MESSAGE
The Bible established the fact that there are lawful captives. A captive is someone that is held hostage or in bondage, a prisoner or a slave. There are physical captives and there are spiritual captives. A spiritual captive is one held in spiritual bondage. He may be conscious or not conscious of his captivity. Nonetheless, he is a captive.
A lawful captive is one who falls into bondage or captivity by breaking the laws of God or falls into sin. God is pure and holy and He punishes sin. When a person falls into sin, he consciously or unconsciously surrenders his rights to satan and satan has the right to punish him by putting him in bondage, slavery, prison or place a yoke upon him. He, therefore, becomes a lawful captive of satan (2 Timothy 2:26).
Sin opens the door of our lives to captivities (2 Timothy 3:6). When a person regularly commits a particular sin and ﬁnds it difﬁcult to break away from it, he becomes a captive of that sin. There are captives of lust, adultery, fornication, drug abuse, addiction, lies, pride, ostentatious living, power, covetousness etc. This is a proof that the person is under the captivity of an evil habit and the soul is in bondage.
When the soul of a man is in captivity, he will not be conscious of the spiritual happenings around him. The soul is the greatest asset of a man and that is the greatest target of the kingdom of darkness. What shall it proﬁt a man if he loses his soul and gains the whole world (Matthew 16:26). This implies that our soul is more valuable to God than our possessions.
God places high premium on our soul. The greatest captivity therefore is the captivity of the soul. Any area of our lives: body, ﬁnance, marriage, academic can come under captivity. When a person is constantly plagued by sickness, the body is in the captivity of sickness. When a person is regularly experiencing an unexplainable ﬁnancial failure, this is a sign of ﬁnancial captivity.
Today you need to repent from all your sins and invite the spirit of God into your life so that the spirit of God can set you free from all forms of captivity (2 Corinthians 3:17). This is the major work Christ came to do on earth (Luke 4:13). Jesus came that he might set us free from both physical and spiritual captivities as well as to restore all hopes and lost blessings.
Memory Verse: 2 Corinthians 3:17 “Now the Lord is that spirit: and where the spirit of the Lord is there is liberty”
Motivational Quote: The greatest captivity is to be ignorant of your captivity.
Prophetic Word: The Lord will arise and make your captivities captives, in the name of Jesus.
HYMN: How Sweet The Name Of Jesus Sounds
1. How sweet the name of Jesus sounds In a believer’s ear!
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,
And drives away his fear.
2. It makes the wounded spirit whole
And calms the troubled breast;
‘Tis manna to the hungry soul
And to the weary, rest.
3. Dear name! the rock on which I build,
My shield and hiding place;
My never failing treasury, filled
With boundless stores of grace!
4. Jesus, my Shepherd, Brother Friend,
My Prophet, Priest and King,
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,
Accept the praise I bring.
5. Till then I would Thy love proclaim
With ev’ry fleeting breath;
And may the music of Thy name
Refresh my soul in death.
1. My Father, forgive me of the sin that put me in the captivity of darkness, in the name of Jesus.
2. Every evil covenant holding me in captivity, I break you, in the name of Jesus.
3. O God, arise and deliver my soul from the captivity of darkness, in the name of Jesus.
4. Inherited captivity, release me and die, in the name of Jesus.
5. You the captivity of my father’s house, scatter, in the name of Jesus.
6. You the captivity of my mother’s house, scatter and die, in the name of Jesus.
7. You the strong man keeping my captivity in place, die, in the name of Jesus.
