The Word of God is Not Bound
Daily Devotional for August 31st
Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel: Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound. 2 Timothy 2:8-9
The devil may think he has all power, but his abilities definitely are limited. No matter what he does, he cannot be compared to God Almighty. Satan is ugly, deceitful and wicked. He must hide his identity and use trickery and pleasures in order to gain followers because true identity is sickening and disturbing.
But it’s good to know that in a world of uncertainty, some things that are certain. The power of God is the strongest power on earth. It is undisputed and unmatched. God holds this world in His hands. God is always faithful! He loves us! He has liberty and victory always in mind for you. The word spoken from God’s mouth cannot be bound because it is truth. Truth cannot be combatted. There is power in the Word of God. When it is believed upon by anyone, it will accomplish the work it is intended to accomplish.
The Word of God is so comforting to us. We read it earnestly with tears because is speaks directly into our situations and needs. Although the devil has the ability to bind the world and even place the apostles such as Paul in prison, the word of God is not bound. The reason is simple; nothing that is of God can be bound! God cannot be overcome by anything! The only reason why Jesus was nailed to the cross was because it was the Father’s will. Although death has laid hold on all of humanity, it could not bind Jesus, because it was not possible that he should be holden of it. Acts 2:24.
Although Satan cannot bind the word of God, he will seek to bind the messenger. The only way that the devil can gain victory over you is to change what you believe. But even in a jail cell, you are not bound. He cannot, nor will he ever be able to bind the word of God. The reason why there is freedom promised to the world when we obey the word of God is due to the simple fact that the word is not bound. Jesus said ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32. The very nature of God and everything He says is power and victory.
The question that lies before us today is this; is Satan using anything to bind you? Are there things you are held in captivity to but seek to be free? Satan would love to bind the word or change it, but he can’t. The word of God declares freedom! The word speaks life! The devil cannot change what God has said! Jesus proclaimed liberty to all captives. If you are facing bondage in any area of you life, deliverance will come when you stand on the word that cannot be bound or changed.
