Your present condition does not dictate your future, your faith in God does.
The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.

Confession


And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)

The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.

Are you chained or anchored

Judges 16: 18-21 18 And when Delilah saw that he had told her all his heart, she sent and called for the lords of the Philistines, saying, Come up this once, for he hath shewed me all his heart. Then the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and brought money in their hand. 19 And when Delilah saw that he had told her all his heart, she sent and called for the lords of the Philistines, saying, Come up this once, for he hath shewed me all his heart. Then the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and brought money in their hand. 20 And she said, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the LORD was departed from him. 21 But the Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza, and bound him with fetters of brass; and he did grind in the prison house.

Chained means to be bound to something.
Anchored means to be secured to,something that will prevent you from drifting.
If you own a boat and you will drop anchor in order to get whatever you need to be done. When you drift it causes you move from where you want to be to some place you don’t want to.


Although you might not be physically bound with chains like Samson , you might be bound financially, emotionally, mentally. You feel like you are in an emotional cycle. You are at a place where you are unable to see. You struggle and try to break free, held a captive, you are broken, crushed, strongholds weighing you down, you feel hopeless and fail to understand that the price for your freedom has already been paid in full.


2 Corinthians 10: 4-5 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. 5 Casting down imaginations, and everything that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.


If you find yourself in chains today, living with strongholds, held a captive, you need to first acknowledge that you are bound. A lot of people live in denial. Believe there is something better for your life, confess any sin that may have caused you to be where you are today. Determine a course of action you are going to take, call on Jesus only Him can fix your troubles.

What kind of chains do you have?
Are you chained by the enemy or anchored in God. There is power in the name of Jesus to break every chain. Declare your freedom, no more shackles, no more chains, no more bondage.

Repentance is a God given opportunity to enter into the blessings of the Lord and escape from the oppression of the enemy.
