Sophisticated Captivity

Wednesday September 22, 2010

The Israelites, especially those who were born in Babylonian captivity, did not want to go back to Israel, because they became comfortable and forgot that they were living in captivity. We, as Christians, get comfortable and forget that we have areas where we are still captives. Our captivity is in areas of doubt in God’s Word and in believing the lies of the enemy. For instance, we believe in healing, but are we sick? We believe in prosperity, but do we have enough? In what areas has Satan captured you? Just like Joseph, Queen Esther, Moses, and Jesus, turn the tables on the devil and capitalize on your captivity. Jesus led captivity captive. (Ps. 68:10-20) Be free by being a captive to Jesus Christ and continue in His Word. (John 8:31-36) Don’t be captive to the devil, but to Jesus.
