It is no secret that everyone at one time or another is bound. You have been trapped into some type of unhealthy habit. It literally sucks the life out of you, giving you an ounce of pleasure, but costing you a lifetime of bondage.
The Bible calls the debtor a slave. Someone who lends you money is called the oppressor. No different than the days of slavery to the present day the masses are enslaved through credit card debt, car notes, mortgage etc. Not free to do as you really please because of the bondage that you now face.
You want to be free, but when your body calls you run to the nearest Starbucks, Chili’s, Logan’s, Olive Garden, Macy’s, Nike Store, Target, Walmart, Bath and Body Works, TJMaxx, and the Banana Republic. If I missed you, you get the picture. You buy vehicles you know you cannot afford.
If your worldview is seen through the eyes of the world you will remain bound. To break free from this requires seeing through the eyes of Jesus Christ. This requires a constant meditation on the word of God. You cannot expect to be free until the chains on your thinking have been made free.
You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked (Revelation 3:17).
You have lied to yourself about your condition. You have become comfortable in your slavery and in your poverty. You must wake up and face your condition. You’re bound.
Now, what are you going to do about it?
