Taking Down Slavery

We need to be a part of Christians who are Taking Down Slavery, for God has called us to set captives free…

1 Samuel 16-17
16 The Lord said to Samuel, “How long will you mourn for Saul, since I have rejected him as king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and be on your way; I am sending you to Jesse of Bethlehem. I have chosen one of his sons to be king.”

The Bible is filled with stories of God sending heroes to rescue His people from slavery. God always used what was in their hands at the time to fight and win.

God used Moses’ past and experiences to rescue His people from slavery in Egypt. Moses survived genocide and was raised as the prince of Egypt. He later murdered someone and ran for his life because of it. God prepared him in the desert to return and release His people from slavery.

When David fought against Goliath, it was because the Philistines wanted to enslave the Israelites. Jael used a tent peg to fight against the Canaanites who also wanted to enslave the Israelites.

We, as David, need to overcome these three things in order to be victorious: words, waiting, and trouble.

During the waiting periods of life we can become discouraged and anxious. It is important that we look to God and believe that He will follow through on what He has revealed to us.

Words can be used to keep us in slavery. We have to learn to believe and practice the presence of God and His thoughts of us.  When you learn to select the words that penetrate your heart, you will have victory.

Facing trouble is what we can utilize to strengthen us. Trouble helps us to prepare for bigger battles for which God is empowering us.
