Just sit back and let this song soak in. Begin to meditate and let your spirit engage with the words as they're being sung.

"There is power in the name of Jesus

To break every chain

All sufficient sacrifice
So freely given
Such a price
Bought our redemption
Heaven's gates swing wide

There's an army rising up"

What are you bound by? What chains are holding you back?  Ask the Holy Spirit to search you and reveal addictions, distractions, anything that is holding you back in your relationship with God the Father.

Do you believe that God wants you free? I'll show you that He does:

31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” 33 They answered him, “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?”
 34 Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave[b] to sin. 35 The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. 37 I know that you are offspring of Abraham; yet you seek to kill me because my word finds no place in you. 38 I speak of what I have seen with my Father, and you do what you have heard from your father.” John 8:31-38

16 But when one[a] turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. 17 Now the Lord[b] is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord,[c] are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:16-18

 1 For freedom Christ has set us freestand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1

Christ has set us free from the law and free from sin.  It is time to abolish it in our lives so we can begin to set others free.  Are you living in a spiritual prison?  You know God and have accepted Jesus yet are submitting yourself over and over again to a yoke of slavery of some form?
I was.
I was in the bonds of alcoholism for six years.  Now that Christ has broken that chain I want to see others' chains broken.

You can't untie someone else if you're all tied up.

I encourage you to pray about any chains that may be in your life and then begin to declare freedom in those areas. Christ delivers us out of all of our afflictions, go into your prayer time believing that He wants you free so that you can give Him glory.

Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the LORD delivers him out of them all. Psalm 34:19

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds5casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ... 2 Corinthians 10:3-5
