Government: Free From the Oppressor

Christ has truly set us free.


 

Scripture #1

“…you have shattered the yoke that burdens them, the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor.” Isaiah 9:4

Father, You have made Your choice known. You have placed Your government on the shoulders of the ambassadors of reconciliation. Let wisdom flow. Let the warriors shout their acclaim and fidelity. Let the people realize that the oppressor has been defeated, the heavy burden removed, and the rod has been broken!

Scripture #2

“For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:30

Father, help us to realize the yoke of the oppressor is gone. Reveal to us just how good You are, and how gentle Jesus is and how free we really are! Give us revelation of a true burden of God.

Scripture #3

  “The Lord has broken the rod of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers,” Isaiah 14:5

The enemy of our soul has been made a public display.

Scripture #4

“And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.” Col. 2:15

Scripture #5

“You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.” Psalm 32:7

Deliverance comes in unexpected ways. I am protected. I am safe. I am surrounded and enveloped in the Song of Songs.

Father, open our eyes to see this.
Open our hearts to love this.
Open our ears to hear this.
Open our mouths to speak this.
