PS 146 v 7...Who executes justice for the oppressed, Who gives food to the hungry, The Lord gives freedom to the prisoners....

My word today was freedom, and this was the scripture. I thought, OK, where is this going? Then the Lord showed me, that being a prisoner doesn't necessarily mean being locked behind bars. We have all at some time in our lives been a prisoner to something or someone. We may have been a prisoner to food, when we knew we needed to lose weight. Maybe, like myself, you were a prisoner or still are to smoking or drinking. Being a prisoner is being bound to something, that you are letting control you. When you are literally locked up in prison, the prison guards have control over you. It is the same with our addictions or habits, we are letting them control us, therefore making us a prisoner to them. The devil can also hold us prisoners to thoughts that he puts in our minds. This is a dangerous type of prison and we need to steer clear.

2 Cor. 10 v 5...casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ....

But God's word says, we can bring into captivity the thoughts that try to exalt themselves above God and the Lord gives freedom to the prisoners. We can be free of whatever has us bound here on this earth. God says whatsoever you shall loose on earth will be loosed in heaven, and whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven. He says he has given you the keys. You just have to choose to use them to unlock your freedom.

Matthew 16 v 19...And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.....

Hallelujah! The freedom is in your hands. You just have to choose to accept to use the keys.
