There are so many ways to get bogged down in this life. We can feel like we are chained down by family problems, depression, anxiety, chronic illness, addiction, and our mistakes.
I love this version of Break Every Chain by Tasha Cobbs. She sings it so powerfully and beautifully. When I listen to this song, I think about what Jesus said about himself in Luke 4:
“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”
What does Jesus want to do for us? He wants to see us free from what chains us down in life. Why should we trust him with our struggles? Because he loves us and in his own words in Matthew 11:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls”.
It helps to know that the person offering help, Jesus, not only has the power and ability to help, but he has a gentle heart.
I hope this song blesses your Monday and week. Thank you for reading.God Bless.
