The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, Luke 4:18 (NIV)
Things that have happened in our past can hold us back from living the life God has for us. It can keep us prisoner from living God’s fullness. We can be held back by fear, worry or doubt. We may not fully trust that God can use us because of our past mistakes.
Jesus has the power to conquer our past. He came to set us free from our fear, worry and doubt. He came to proclaim the good news that we can be set free. Through Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection, He has the power to conquer anything that may hold us back.
Prayer: God, thank you that you can conquer my past. Show me the areas where I need to accept your ability to conquer my past. Thank you for setting me free. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
