Are You Bound To Pain?


Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.” -John 11:44 NIV

Are you wrapped up and bound to painful things that took place in your life years ago or even this past year? It’s impossible for you to fully embrace and live in the present while perpetually walking through the tombs of your past. Repeating and reliving dead issues actually robs you of living the new life Jesus died on the cross for you to have.

In the opening verse, Jesus shouted to Lazarus, “Come out!” He went on to say, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”

Is there something that has been holding you back from experiencing the fullness of life the Lord offers you? Jesus would like to heal you from the issues that have left you feeling wounded and dead.

Reach out for the help that will help you gain ultimate healing. Choose to arise and come out of your tomb. Let go and let God heal you. You will be more joyful and those around you will be blessed as well.

During the remaining few days of this year find time to pause and allow God to reveal what issues, hurts, grudges and past mistakes He would like for you to release to Him. Then you can enter the upcoming New Year healed, freed and prepared to embrace a more holy, healthy, happy favorable Year of the Lord!

Prayer Focus

  • Ask God to reveal to you the things that have been holding you back from receiving and experiencing all He has waiting for you.
  • Pray that the Holy Spirit would help you to let go of issues from your past that are blocking you from living a spirit-filled life.
