Let the words of your mouth and the meditation of your heart be acceptable in my sight. Resonate thoughtfully with my Spirit and my Word. Be my echo! Be my mirror! Stop all excuses – you are not a victim, unable to break free! Step into the light and sever all that offends me. I have given you my heart, my mind, my ability. Step up and be holy. I have bought your freedom: you are no longer a slave to sin. Be emancipated into the light in all your ways.
Romans 6:6 TPT
Could it be any clearer that our former identity is now and forever deprived of its power? For we were co-crucified with him to dismantle the stronghold of sin within us, so that we would not continue to live one moment longer submitted to sin’s power.
Psalm 107:10-14 TPT
Some of us once sat in darkness,
living in the dark shadows of death.
We were prisoners to our pain, chained to our regrets.
For we rebelled against God’s word
and rejected the wise counsel of God Most High.
So he humbled us through our circumstances,
watching us as we stumbled, with no one there to pick us back up.
Our own pain became our punishment.
Then we cried out, “Lord, help us! Rescue us!” And he did!
His light broke through the darkness and
he led us out in freedom from death’s dark shadow
and snapped every one of our chains.
