Who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry. The Lord gives freedom to the prisoners
In Psalm 146, ten verses give us ten reasons to rejoice for His kindness. We have good reason to shout!
The Lord sets prisoners free. Freedom – true, meaningful, spiritual freedom – cannot be found outside of Jesus Christ. Only He can break our chains and release us from sin.
We once were slaves to sin, and Satan was our slave master. But Jesus came to dwell among us. What He came to do in His earthly ministry, He has done in each of our lives. He touched the sick and set them free from disease. He touched the sinners and delivered them from the shackles of their past.
He spoke the Word, and the dead came back to life. The same hands that reached out to the sick and the sinful in the New Testament are the same hands that reach from Calvary, through the crimson stream, to touch us today.
The Lord has set us free. Like Lazarus, we have walked from death into life. Like Zacchaeus, we have walked from sin into salvation. Like Bartimaeus, we have walked out of the blindness of our yesterdays to see God’s purpose in our lives.
Cry out for freedom! Lift your voice to declare your liberty! Now is the time to shout.
