There’s a deliverance we attempt to obtain ourselves. Without the assistance of God, we attempt to free ourselves from things such as, overeating, pornography, procrastination, moodiness, and more. Through self-effort, that deliverance is taxing and temporary. After a few weeks, we slowly begin to go back to our old ways.

God’s deliverance is everlasting. God’s deliverance still requires our participation, but it’s His plan. Through His Spirit, He’ll give us step by step instructions on what we should do to be totally delivered. He may have us confess our deliverance over that thing daily, have us meditate on deliverance scriptures, or substitute our urges with praise.

It may be difficult in the beginning, but remain consistent. We may feel like we have it under control after doing what God says for a few weeks, but remain consistent. If we remain consistent, we’ll experience complete freedom.

For those bound by anything that doesn’t honor God who want deliverance, let go of all your ways and the ways you’ve heard about and be led by the Holy Spirit.

2 Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
