Delivered and Free
Themes of freedom and deliverance are powerful in gospel music. Life and Favor is one of my favorite gospel songs. I love the passion, the truth, and the emotions behind the words. I love this song because it tells my story.
You don’t know my story
You don’t know the day He set me free
You cannot imagine
The strongholds and the walls that severed me
In all God has been faithful to me
He promised he would never leave me
My story proves that God can use me
Deliverance is my testimony
As I listen to this song I am filled with such emotion. God has brought deliverance from very real struggles and strongholds. God healed me through His love and acceptance. His truth has transformed my heart and life. He has done more in my heart and life than I ever could have even begun to imagine. Thank you Jesus
My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you—I whom you have delivered. Psalm 71:23
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1
Do you know these glorious truths? You are delivered. You are free. It does not matter how strong the addiction, the stronghold, or the bondage feels right now. It does not matter how many times you have failed. It does not matter how long your history has been with your struggle. What matters is the powerful, Almighty God declares you are FREE. You are DELIVERED. That is the truth about you. Don’t believe the lie that you can never be free of your struggle. God has set you free. Walk in your deliverance.
What is the story that God has given you?
