7 He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free,
8 the LORD gives sight to the blind, the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves the righteous. 9 The LORD watches over the foreigner and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. (Psalm 146)
34 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:36)
Thoughts: The Lord is portrayed over and over again as setting prisoners free. We all are imprisoned to our own selfishness and self-interest. God is able to free us from the shackles of sin so we may be able to have freedom. If you are feeling addicted, enslaved, then remember the One who can set you free. Jesus came to set the prisoner free.
Prayer; Set me free, Lord, to be the person you have called me to be.
