And then I broke free

And then I broke free!

My spirit was weary,
And my flesh desired to rule.
My soul cried out
And my cry was heard in heaven.

While on my knees,
My face up to heaven,
My hands lifted to the king,
I heard the wings of angels in flight.

They flew at high speed
Across the heavens,
To battle the kingdoms
That stood against me.

The swords flew,
The angels of the Lord prevailed.
Michael their commander led the victory.
Jesus my King, commanded from heaven.

I remained in shackles,
Tears flowed from my inner soul.
Every teardrop was heard in heaven.
My wailing broke through the atmosphere
And made it to the ears of God.

My flesh yearned to rule
But my soul cried out to be free.
My spirit hungered. My soul cried. My flesh devoured.

I heard the Lord rise to his feet.
He commanded the army to go forth and fight.
I heard the winds blow, as the angels flew.
I heard the thunder roar as my God spoke.
I felt the peace as my Jesus prayed.

The chains broke.
The shackles fell.
The yoke collapsed.

The curses were conquered.
The kingdoms were overturned.
The enemies were destroyed.
The armies were mutilated.
All that stood against me had been conquered.
And then I broke free.
I fell to my face in humility,
In gratitude, in awe of the power of God.

I received my inheritance.
I received my gifts.
I received my peace.
I received my strength.
I received my gold.
I received my assets.
I received my businesses.
I received my ministry.
I received my family.
I received my calling.
I received my breakthrough.
I received the anointing of the power of God!
And I received everything that the enemy stole from me.

And then I realized that life was no challenge for God!
He is King!
He is ruler over heaven and earth!
He is the Great Almighty God!
And there is no God besides him!
Hallelujah! Glory to God!

And then I let go of my past.
I let go of my pain.
I let go of my disappointments.
I let go of bad influences.
I let go of fear.
I let go of hopelessness.
I let go of depression.
I let go of weariness.
I let go of bondage and oppression.
I let go of everything that held me bound.
And then I broke free.

I laughed in the face of my enemies!
And went forth into the victory that God had for me.
My God prevailed and then I was free.

The LORD said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.” Psalm 110:1 KJV

And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD's, and he will give you into our hands. 1 Samuel 17:47

And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Revelation 12:7-11 KJV
