Spiritual Independence | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

Just as people can be under physical bondage to other people, they can also be under spiritual bondage and that was the case for many of us until Jesus came. How did I know that we were bound until he came? Take a look at one of the verses of scriptures that define his purpose here on earth.
‘The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of prison to them that are bound… Isaiah 61:1 (KJV).
From that you can deduce Jesus came to save people from bondage and darkness. He came to set them free. This is also something he came to do, not with physical powers, but with the anointing of God upon him. He started by saying that the Spirit of the Lord is upon him and he gave the specific purpose for which he was anointed.
Many are afflicted of the devil. For some he uses sickness or some deformity. Others are just kept in darkness concerning their glory and other important things about their lives. They are alive and they have potentials but with no results to show for what they have or can do. In fact, if the devil has his way he will want to keep the entire world in darkness.
We also see in John 8:36 that ‘if the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.’ That means we really need to be free from every power that held us bound. Who are those that are in this Spiritual bondage? Some of them are:
Those who have not come to the light of Jesus and become born again.
The people who know the light but refuse to come to it.
Those who still claim there is no God.
Many who think that they can make things happen in their strength.
Those who want to fight spiritual battles with physical strength or another power of darkness.
The Christian that has gone really cold – Mathew 12: 43 – 45 (This talks about an evil spirit leaving a person but the person remains empty and the spirit comes back with seven other spirits that are more wicked.
Those who are also working but can’t see results need this independence.
If you are held down by any form of ailment then you need spiritual independence.
If you have never believed that Jesus is Lord and confessed that he is your saviour then you still need to gain spiritual independence which only Jesus can give and he has already offered this many years ago.
There is no point continuing in the pains, sufferings and stagnation that you are experiencing. You should not continue any other day without Jesus being involved. You have a free offer to be eternally free but it’s up to you to take it and maximise it.
Jesus obviously loves you and I. He does not want us to be in spiritual bondage of the devil. Isn’t that why he paid the very high price of giving his life? He could have chosen not to give his life but he did just so that you and I can be free.
If you have already started a relationship, not a religion, with Jesus and you are serious about it then you are already free indeed from any spiritual bondage. If you have not, then you need to come to Jesus right away. Your intelligence cannot take you out of spiritual bondage. Your powers or connections can’t set you free. Only the son himself can set you but for him to set you free, you have to take his offer in the total package called salvation.
Do you want to continue in the bondage or you want to be free? Take a decision right now and start reaping the fruits immediately.
