God Speaks – Breakthrough

Press play to listen to the audio version of this article.

Though the earth is shattered and your heart trembles, I am your safe place. Though all around you grow weak and weary, I am your strength. In the midst of despair and doubt, I am your confidence and when your heart is breaking and you feel alone, I am with you. I am all you need. Let not your heart grow troubled and be not afraid. I am your good Father and I love you my child. Trust me and know my strength. Believe my love for you and let go of fear. In me you have life. I am faithful. I cannot let you go. Even when you lose your grip on me, I’ve got you. I’m holding you. You may think you’ll never be free. The stronghold that weighs you down, keeps you hidden and far from me, but I see you. I know you and I love you. I came to set the captives free and in me you are free. By my strength and in my power you are delivered. Breakthrough is yours for the taking. Open your hands and receive. Be free. Stand firm in my freedom and know my strength. Now follow me. Stay close.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed.”

Luke 4:18

Ask God:

Where am I in need of your freedom?


Help me live in the freedom you have given.
