Break every chain

'there is power in the name of Jesus. There is power in the name of Jesus. There is power in the name of Jesus, to break every chain, break every chain, to break every chain...'

Have you ever tried to break a chain? It is pretty impossible on your own- even when I am making jewelry, I still have to use some sort of tool to cut the chain to whatever length I'm going for. And usually that's little chain. What about the big chains? I have this picture of Marley's ghost from 'A Christmas Carol' trudging with all of his chains- and I see me sometimes- a ghost with regrets and misery... But it doesn't have to be that way!!! Jesus already paid the price for these crazy chains I drag around with me- and He desires to break them once and for all- that I may walk in freedom with Him. He delights to break the chains. But do we recognize the chains? Oh that He would reveal them and that we would ask Him to break them and to help us not to pick them back up again.
