Your declaration of independence
July 4, 2014
What is it that is holding you captive? Fear? Ill health? Bad habits? Lack?
In the book of Acts is the story of the Apostle Peter held in jail with two chains, between two soldiers, with additional soldiers guarding the door to his cell. (Acts 12:5-11) Seems pretty hopeless, doesn’t it? But, we are told, that many people were praying for Peter. In this most desperate situation, an angel comes to him – smites him to get his attention – removes his chains, and leads him out of the prison to safety. Peter is not quite clear this isn’t a dream until he reaches the house of his cohorts. He then exclaims, “Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me…”
People are praying for you too, and God is constantly sending His angels to deliver you from whatever seems to have bound you. Do you believe this?
Right now, declare your independence from doubt and fear. Declare that you are not outside of God’s care, but actually being cared for even now. Declare that your health, and safety, and happiness, and progress are all in the hands of His angelic deliverers, now.
And know that those mighty angels are willing to smite you too (gently, of course!) to remind you of your blessings and harmony. Their touch is just to wake you up to the fact that you are already in the presence and under the power of God.
Let God and His angels show you the way of salvation. People are praying and you’re included!
Declare your independence!
