Break Every Chain

The lyrics to the song, “Break Every Chain” by Will Reagan helps establish what we hope God will do through Breaking Free Indeed.

There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus
To break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

You’re the all sufficient sacrifice
So freely given such a price
Bought our redemption
Heaven’s gates swing wide

There’s an army rising up
There’s an army rising up
There’s an army rising up
To break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

To break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

There is power in the name of Jesus, to break every chain! That’s what we hope to see accomplished at BFI — the power of God breaking every chain in people’s lives, whether they be physical, mental, or most importantly, spiritual. From modern day slavery, to pornography, to depression, there is power to break every chain. That power is found in Jesus’ name!

I believe that Jesus wants to set people free. He has already paid the price for freedom; now all we need is to come to him. However, our enemy, the Devil, is like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour – seeking who he can enslave and keep from the freedom God wants us all to have.

So we have these two forces fighting each other for our souls, one to enslave it, and another to free it. The grips of bondage are often very tight, and we just can’t break free on our own. But thankfully, we are not alone. This is something we have to realize if we want to ever be free: we are not alone. There is an eternal Savior who loves us. He laid down his own life to save us from the powers that hold us, and He is strong enough to break every chain! We don’t have to fear coming to Him for help. He understands what he face, because he has faced it all himself, and he has overcome what we could not!

“Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
Hebrews 4:14-16 NIV

Those of us who have accepted his gift of new life – freedom, can now receive grace and mercy to help us when we need it! Because of that, we can overcome the temptations that press in on us, but only by the grace of God.

We find freedom in surrender to Him.

We are held closest when we let go of everything else.
We experience the greatest joy in giving up our own pleasure.

Jesus sees us with eyes of love and understanding. He does not condemn us, but welcomes us when we come to Him admitting that we cannot do it ourselves and need His help. He desires to help us to grow and thrive in him. Our God is for us, not against us. When we run to Him nothing can hold us back. So let’s surrender ourselves to the One who has saved us, come to Him unashamed in our times of trouble, and live in freedom.
