Bound and loosed

I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
(Matthew 18:18 (NIV))

Think about that concept.

Think about all of the times that you have said something contrary to God’s Will and then you find yourself in the middle of a situation that is also contrary to God’s Will. These are prime examples of loosing something on earth that should not have been loosed.

There is an old saying that you reap what you sow.

There is a lot of Biblical truth to this statement. If you go around unleashing anger and hatred, then you will be overwhelmed with anger and hatred. If you bind Satan in the physical realm and focus on keeping him away from your life, then he will be bound in the spiritual realm as well.

What do you want to be prevalent in your life? What do you want to be bound and cast away from you? Whatever you desire will be what is loosed upon your life. Look closely at your desires. Are they the desires that God has for you? Is that why your life is the way it is?

What do you want to be loosed in your life?
