Give Them Up

I will say to the north, 'Give them up!'
and to the south, 'Do not hold them back.'
Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth
Isaiah 43:6 (NIV)

I have not been to the ends of the earth, but I know what it feels like to be at the end of myself. I know what it feels like to be held back.

Hear God saying this to that thing that is holding you:
Give them up and do not hold them back!

Give them up, rejection
Do not hold them back, pain
Give them up, sickness
Do not hold them back, insecurity
Give them up, sleeplessness
Do not hold them back, depression
Give them up, anxiety
Do not hold them back, fear!

Chains, Be Broken!
Release My Sons and Daughters!

How appropriate!! I've been awake since 3:30, stressed about all the things I haven't done at work yet. I receive the words of freedom!!

I'm so glad this was waiting for you early this morning! You know I just added that word sleeplessness yesterday, it must have been for you. I pray that you will have the FREEDOM to rest tonight. Give them up stress! Receive His peace that passes your understanding!
