2 Timothy 2:9 NLT: And because I preach this Good News, I am suffering and have been chained like a criminal. But the word of God cannot be chained.
My dear friend in Christ, nothing can chain the word of God. Just like the wind, it goes where it wills and carries out what it is sent to do. Some people assume that they can silence the word of God by putting away the man of God who preaches the word. But the Bible is reminding us today that we cannot put God’s word in chains.
Anytime you set out to preach the word of God, you are faced with persecutions because the enemy the devil will devise means of manipulating his agents (men and women who have allowed the devil to use them, knowingly or unknowingly) to resist you and frustrate you. As for others, they don’t like to be told the truth about the evil they are doing because God’s word is convicting them of their crimes. So they look for a way to silence you.
I encourage you today, do not give up even in chains and persecutions. Nothing can stop God’s word from reaching out. They will always attempt but it will end up in futility. The truth of God’s word will always prevail. If there are prophecies concerning your life, be rest assured that nothing can stop it from coming to pass in your life and family. Then you will rejoice and give glory to God. Shalom.
Declare to yourself loud: God’s promises for me will surely come to pass in my life.
1. Oh Lord my God, may your promises concerning me, become my experience.
2. Precious Holy Spirit, empower me not to give up in times of persecution, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
3. Please add your personal intentions.
