Isaiah 49:24, 25
24 Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, Or the captives of the righteous be delivered?
25 But thus says the LORD: "Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, And the prey of the terrible be delivered; For I will contend with him who contends with you, And I will save your children.
The picture that comes to mind when I read this passage is that of a preditor, as in a hawk or eagle with a small creature securely in its talons, for it's next meal for she and her young.
If you or I were to attempt to remove that creature from the tight grasp, we'd rip the critter to shreds...killing it in our attempts.
God said here that the captive of the mighty will be taken away....and that's something that ONLY HE CAN DO, to retrieve us or our loved ones from the grasp of satan. He said the prey of the terrible would be delivered.
For I will contend with him who contends with you AND I WILL SAVE YOUR CHILDREN! HALLELUJAH!
God gives such GREAT promise there.
6 Blessed be the LORD, Who has not given us as prey to their teeth.
Father, THANK YOU for HELPING US! You've given great promise of deliverance when we need it. Thank You for being true to your Word and that we can trust You to deliver us and our loved ones from evil. You WILL save our children, in Jesus' Name.

How beautiful upon the mountains Are the feet of him who brings good news, Who proclaims peace, Who brings glad tidings of good things, Who proclaims salvation, Who says to Zion, "Your God reigns!"
Have been meditating on this Scripture.
Know anyone that is facing a mountain in their lives? Take the good news of the Word of God and bring down everything that would exalt itself against the knowledge of God's Word.
Salvation is not just our ticket out of hell...it's complete provision for our spirit soul and body. We're to proclaim slavation from sickness, poverty, disease, lack of any kind, torment, confusion, fear, dread, opression, languishing, bondage of every kind. The New Covenant that Jesus purchased FOR US, is all inclusive.
See a mountain? Bring the Word of God into place and set the captive free...with the Name of Jesus, His Blood, the finished work of Jesus, His Word. SHOW that our God truly Reigns.
Father, thank You for Your Word. Jesus, thank You for your obedience even unto Your own death. Father, I ask You to help us to be Your hands, Your ears, Your mouthpiece and Your feet. Help us to be moved by Your compassion with every Divine Appointment that You bring our way. Help us to move swiftly and in the confidence of Your Word to set the captive free every day of our lives. In Jesus' Name.

The Lord sent His Word and healed and delivered me from all destruction. I serve the Lord and He blessed my food and drink and He takes away sickness from me and my family. He heals all our diseases.
The Spirit of Him that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in me; therefore He that raised up Christ from the dead has quickened my mortal body, making it immune to every sickness and disease.
All of my needs are met in Christ Jesus for my God supplies all my needs according to His riches in glory. Christ has redeemed me from the curse of poverty, sickness and spiritual death, and because I am the seed of Abraham, blessing He will bless me and multiplying He will multiply me. I receive the bountifulness of God to me today.
Don't you just LOVE God's Word? It's full of LIFE and POWER and is always doing what it's been sent to do. God also said that the effectual fervant prayer of the righteous avails MUCH. Thank God! When we pray God's Word it will always make a difference in our lives.
Father, thank YOU for the gift of Your Word, the Bible. Thank You that it is alive and active and powerful - producing everything that You sent it to do. Thank You that You have let us know that the SAME Word that You created the heavens and the Earth with will also create what we need created and change what we need changed. HELP US to be FULL of Your Word, so that we will have Rivers of Living Water to share wherever we are. Thank You Jesus for bringing to us the GREAT covenant that enables us to be part of Your life, being JOINT HEIRS with You. HELP US to get IN and stay IN YOU, In Jesus' Name.
