Deliver Yourself

[Thursday, October 19]

“The Spirit says, know that there is power in self-deliverance. For even as you shake free from the worldly ties that have been weights in your life, so shall you stand up against greater demonic powers with confidence.”

Prophetic Scripture:

Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon (Zechariah 2:7).

There is something that happens inside your heart when you overcome something yourself, with the Lord’s help of course. Sure, we all need prayer from trusted friends, and we need other believers for accountability in our Christian walk. We certainly don’t want to discount
the importance of those things. However, when you overcome common bad habits, deficits brought on by your upbringing, or even sin patterns, and you do it from your own resolve with God, it does something to your stamina. No one bailed you out or did anything to help you. It is similar to when you buy a house or something that you worked hard to save money for. You work harder to protect your investment. Selfdeliverance is the same. The Lord prophesied through Zechariah that God wanted Zion to deliver themselves from the bondages of Babylon,
even though they were still living there. Babylon represents a type of the world. God wanted them to stay free from the worldly culture even though they lived among that culture, and He wanted them to do it with their own internal resolve.

If you have some areas that you want to be free from, like all of us do, and you don’t want things that weigh you down to keep holding you back, then make some determined steps for self-deliverance. It will prepare you for great things and boost your spiritual confidence.


Lord, I commit to making some steps to further deliver myself from worldly ties. Show me areas where I need to shake free, and I thank You for helping me walk it out so I have confidence for the next level. Amen.
