The Chain Snapper
“He led them from the darkness and deepest gloom; he snapped their chains.” (Psalms 107:14 NLT)
This morning I was reading this scripture and the words “snapped their chains” stood out to me. Imagine what that looks like. Envision the heavy, metal chain links that bind prisoners to keep them restrained. Do you know how difficult it is to snap those chains? Do you know the supernatural strength a person would have to possess to break those chains? If it were easy then all restrained prisoners would break free. Yet the bible says God holds the power to do what we can’t.
Think about the chains in your life that you haven’t been able to break free from. The low self esteem. The feelings of unworthiness. The insecurities. The doubt. The confusion. The lies. The unhealthy relationships. The lustful thoughts. The financial distress. The areas of bondage that’s been affixed to your leg, dragged along everywhere you go. It has seemed impossible to break free, yet the bible says God can snap your chains. He is just that powerful, just that strong.
When snapping the chains, I can imagine Him saying “nothing will hold my daughter back from fulfilling the plans I have for her!” I can hear Him speaking with such boldness and authority as He sets the captives free. Believe in what He can do in your life. Cry out for His help and ask Him to set you free. He did it for me, so I know He can do it for you.
