Can plunder be taken from warriors, or captives be rescued from the fierce? 25 But this is what the LORD says: “Yes, captives will be taken from warriors, and plunder retrieved from the fierce; I will contend with those who contend with you, and your children I will save. 26 I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh; they will be drunk on their own blood, as with wine. Then all mankind will know that I, the LORD, am your Saviour, your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob. Scripture Reading: Isaiah 49:24-26 NIV

Through this Word, the Lord Jesus wants to give freedom to those who are held captive. He wants to retrieve plunder from the fierce warriors who are holding what belongs to you. The Word of the Lord is powerful and He watches to see that it does what He sends it to do (Jeremiah 1:12.) Today, He wants to set you free from your captors through His Word. These are powerful forces of darkness that are assigned to make sure that you and your family remain in captivity.

You have tried to retrieve what belongs to you by consulting different kinds of powers. They gave you muthi ( traditional medicine in Southern Africa) to smear on yourself and sprinkle all over your yard. They even gave you bewitched waters to drink and to bath with, but all those things did not work. This is because you were applying methods of the same kingdom of those who torment you.

You have found no liberation from those powers; your captors are still in control of your life. Today, the Lord says, plunder shall be retrieved from the fierce. What belongs to you shall be retrieved from the hands of the evil one. It does not matter how powerful your enemies are. This shall happen because the Word of the Lord says so. The power of the Word of God is above what you have tried to use before. Believe the Lord for your freedom today.
