Brought Back Captivity
Thank God for the 28th day of August 2012. May we experience new beginnings in every area of our life this season in Jesus Name. Amen!.
As we continue in the last week of this month of August – Let’s encourage ourselves with the scripture in Psalm 126 verses 1 to 3 which says:When the Lord brought back the captivity of Zion, We were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, And our tongue with singing. Then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” The Lord has done great things for us, And we are glad.The dictionary define Captivity as “a state or period of being imprisoned, confined and enslaved”. So we can interpret this portion of scripture as saying:When the Lord brought the people out of the prison of life, out of their dead situation, out of their “slavery”, out of bondage, out of the control of the enemy, out of the hands of things or people who were in control of their life, out of the hopeless and difficult situation etc. The people could not believe that God has done it as it was as if they were dreaming, because the news of the freedom was so unexpected and sudden that they even doubted the truth for a while. And because of this unexpected deliverance and miracle by God, their mouth were filled with laughter, joy filled their hearths and they sang praises to God from their hearts. Also this great act of God’s divine intervention (i.e. God bringing them back from captivity), made those around them to declare that indeed the Lord is good and has done great things for these people.
As we continue in this new day – let’s rejoice and be glad because the snare is broken and we are free – the Lord has made a way for us where there seems to be no way. Praise God… Hallelujah!! Have a miracle filled day… Loving Regards,
