Loosed by Jesus
On the morrow, because he would have known the certainty whererfore he was accused of the Jews, he loosed him from his bands, and commanded the chief priests and all their council to appear and brought Paul down and set him before them.
We have such a great opportunity to live full lives as children of God. They can be full of faith, love, provision, health, joy and every other good thing God has for us. It is the devil that ties people up and deceives them so they cannot receive from God. Jesus is the one that looses us from the ties the devil puts around us!
In Acts 22:28-30, the Bible uses the word “loose.” It means to be untied from something binding. Anytime the devil tries to bind people up with issues: grief, condemnation, pain, struggles – God will deliver them. How can a person be set free or loosed by God? That kind of freedom comes through faith. When faith gets into a person’s heart, they are about to get freed from issues. There are many examples in the Bible of how Jesus loosed individuals. The woman with the issue of blood was loosed or untied from a string of problems. He made that woman whole meaning she was healed physically and emotionally, restored financially and restored in lifestyle altogether. What an awesome God we serve.
There was another individual who was bound by demons, but his worship toward Jesus was louder than the cry of the spirits that had overtaken him. When he came in faith knowing that Jesus could loose his life, he was untied and made free. The wonderful part about these two accounts is that God is no respecter of persons, and He has not lost the recipe for deliverance. Faith toward God will still untie all of mankind’s issues and cause them to walk in liberty. Galatians 5:1 says, “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free…” If God has given us freedom, let’s reach out and receive it by faith. Let God loose your life!
