Today we offer Part Three in our Three part Series on
How to Win over Fear and Other Negative Emotions
|Freedom in Jesus Christ|
Today we will consider a prayer called Binding and Loosening - - as Jesus taught about Spiritual Keys to lock and unlock what prohibits and then brings an answer.Matthew 16:19 New King James Version. 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.”
Jesus gave YOU and me, Authority to bind on earth the negative and then bind it in the heavenlies. (The atmosphere where Satan has dominion.) Authority is also yours to loose the positive on earth and to loose it in heaven.
Find a quiet place where you can be alone and bring your written list of negative and positives. (Refer to Part Two for a suggested list) TO VIEW PART TWO CLICK HERE
Use your own words, Confess to Jesus that you no longer want (name the emotion) to rule and reign in your life.
This is the first step to Freedom. (A desire to be free)
Again do NOT be afraid or think this Crazy, odd or peculiar, but you are to SPEAK to the attitude (name it) and command it to be Bound on earth and Bound in heaven and to GO and leave your life. Go as far to say, "I don’t want you any longer."
This is important and next you must fill the house with the opposite attitude. Repeat your command by naming the Positive attitude, and using the words Loose on earth and Loose in heaven.
Your binding and loosening prayer should continue until your list is completed. If the Holy Spirit reveals something else, then take charge again and be bold to continue.
Once your prayer time is done, then take the opportunity to worship, praise and thank Jesus for shedding His blood to pay for your freedom.
If and when these attitudes try to return, Say “NO, you are not welcome,” and immediately take charge and reinforce by claiming the opposite positive attitude.
MORE THOUGHTS ON BINDING AND LOOSENING for others.
You have authority over YOUR OWN house and household, but realize that in praying this prayer for someone else, they have a will and choices are up to them to make changes.
However here is an example. Let us say someone in your family is angry and fuming and the atmosphere is charged with negative emotions and you can even feel it in the air.
Quietly and silently under your breath, bind the “spirit” of anger, and loose a spirit of calmness and peace. You and God have set in motion a change, and we trust that the person will respond using their own will. – I have seen it happen.
For your children, bind the spirit of foolishness, and loose a spirit of wisdom. You can pray claiming other attitudes as you are nudged by the Holy Spirit.
Expect changes in YOU in your family and in your situation.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).
Fill me now Oh Lord, with thy Blessed Holy Spirit.
