3 keys to inner freedom

First key: Repentence in your thinking

Demons, evil spirits, can gain access into our lives because we left an open door for the enemy. It’s our responsibility to close these doors and take away the ‘’legal ground’’ for a demon. 

But if we want to close the door for the enemy, we must repent in our minds, seek forgiveness for our actions and take responsibility for our life. How do you do that?

The Bible says in 1 John 1:7

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Walking in the light means that everything in your life is open to God and that nothing is hidden. If we do that, we take away the working territory of the devil.

Second key: Forgiveness for inner wounds

When people sin against us, they can deeply hurt us. Especially rejection strikes deep wounds. For example, children who are not wanted by their parents or a woman who’s abandoned by her husband. It’s important to forgive the people who caused the inner wounds. But how do you that?

The Lord said in His word that we should forgive each other 70 times 7. That’s a total of 490 times. If we take a day of 24 hours. We sleep on average 8 hours per day, so that leaves us 16 hours. If we calculate this it means that we have to forgive every one and a half minute. ‘’I forgive’’ – one and a half minute later: ‘’I forgive’’. It’s about an attitude of fogiveness. By walking the path of forgiveness, you close the door for  demons. Only then you can be free from your inner wounds, which were the detained by demons. We’re not asking for people to sin against us, but we shouldn’t sin against ourselves by not forgiving.

Third key: Freedom in relationships

The third door we need to close, are relationships in which we’re not free. In Galations 5:1 Paul writes:

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

Who has the responsibility to throw off that slavery? You! You must take responsibility for it. When you read about a yoke of slavery in the Bible it’s always referred to one person that is oppressed by another. Oppression or domination is a sin. An example of manipulation or socery is found in Galations 4:17:

They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might affect them.

People are not meant to function as puppets. We are uniquely created and we have the responsibility to protect the uniqueness of our personality.

But how do you do that?

Put the Lord Jesus first and let Him guide you. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Ask the Holy Spirit the truth and it shall be given to you.

If you feel bound and feel like you’re not getting any further, go to the Lord and say:

Father God, I come to you in the name of Your Son Jesus Chris, with the power of the Holy Gost and I lay down everything that isn’t Yours. I will not let anyone put a yoke of slavery on me again. Thank You for Your freedom that I have received, because You Lord Jesus went on the cross for me to save me from my sins. In Jesus name I bind everything that tries to keep a hold on me and send it bound to the footstool of Jesus, in Jesus name. AMEN
