No Chains On Me

Ladies, I am telling you that our God is a healer, a deliverer, a restorer!!  I know some of you are still in that ‘fiery trial’ and it is hard to believe that you will ever experience freedom. I know what that feels like.

Can I, just for a moment, be that voice whispering to you from the other side, He is faithful.  You will be singing and dancing in the freedom He has given you

This will be your declaration soon,

I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.  (Psalm 40:3)

I cannot stop singing this song, listen to the lyrics, so powerful!  (Video posted below)

No Chains On Me”  Chris Tomlin

This is the dream, a dream for the world to see You
A dream for the world to know You, to love Your name
Lift up a shout, lift up a cry to shake the ground
Shout and the walls are coming down
Yeah, we're running after You
Like a rolling stone, like a runaway train
No turning back, no more yesterdays
My heart is free, no chains on me
God, You raise me up, up from the grave

The cross before, I'm on my way
My heart is free, no chains on me
Now is the time, now is the time for freedom
Abandoned by cold religion, my heart on fire
We hear the sound, the sound of revival coming
The sound of Your people rising
Yeah, we're running after You
The walls are coming down

I am seeing this in my life, watching the chains fall and the walls come down. I am in awe of what He is doing.  The pace, at times, surprises me.  Like a rolling stone, like a runaway train!!

He is no respecter of persons.  Your time is coming.  Wait on Him and hope in Him.  This is His desire for each of His children, freedom.  The journey is different for each of us, but freedom is His heart for you!!  My ‘fiery trial’ lasted for over 10 years, so do not despair!!

Praising Him for the freedom that is on its way in your life.

I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living.
 Wait for the Lord;
Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for the Lord. (Ps. 27:13-14)
