Breaking the Chains of Bondage

Why is Breaking the Chains of Bondage significant? Because you were made with a purpose to fulfill everything you’ve ever dreamed or aspired or desired (your vision) that God has put on your heart. Consequently, we are spiritual beings having a human experience; therefore, we are in a spiritual battle of the mind. “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places” (NLT, Ephesians 6:12). Therefore, it’s this battle of the mind that determines whether or not we break the chains of bondage or allow them to remain.




What are the Chains of Bondage? Chains of Bondage can represent anything from 0-18 years of age past trauma, negative emotions, and limited beliefs, to include negative life experiences along the way such as guilt, shame, resentment, resistance, anger, revenge, fear, materialism, stubbornness, pride, control, a need for approval, not good enough, etc. So, ask yourself? How many times have you found yourself feeling out of control, helpless, embarrassed, shamed, not good enough, less than, fearful, or angry? All of these feelings or experiences are Chains of Bondage. This includes generational baggage (i.e., stories, beliefs, limitations, or excuses, etc.) about oneself or family that holds you back.


Where do these Chains of Bondage come from? It all starts in the mind. It starts with your “thoughts.” Then those thoughts become things, such as your attitude (emotions), which then in turn your behaviors (actions) which formulate your results (what we want or don’t want). So, if it all starts with your mind, where do you put your thoughts? Are you the type of person who lives in fear or doubt? Do you find yourself reacting to circumstances vs responding to circumstances? Does your pain, hurt and troubles keep you thinking in the past? If so, you’re not alone.


Be encouraged. God’s Word in Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (NLT, Ephesians 6:12). God wants what’s best for you and wants you to have the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4 (KJV) “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of your heart.” This is your vision list for your life from Lesson 1.


How do you break the Chains of Bondage in your life? Well, my friend, this involves three schools of thought as we learned in Lesson 2.


So, what’s at stake? What’s at stake is a culmination of everything you ever wanted to BE, DO and HAVE. It’s your vision list from Lesson 1, “Where there is no vision, the people perish” (KJV, Proverbs 29:18). Are you living for everyone else's vision? Is your vision list empty? In this lesson you will address ways of Breaking the Chains of Bondage.


So, what “if” you…Shifted your “thinking” to Above the Line Thinking, as God desires? What would be different? By shifting how you think, you will begin to Break the Chains of Bondage to every negative emotion, limited belief, generational curse (lie) and create a life of restoration, healing, hope, prosperity, and fulfillment.
