Jesus, our Savior and Lord, came to set us free.
In Luke 4, Jesus said these words: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor” (4:18-19, NIV). As Jesus finished these words, He declared that in Him was the fulfillment of this message.
He is healing. He is freedom. He is hope.
Yet for many of us – even as followers of Jesus – while we know these things to be true, we have not experienced the fullness of that freedom. We struggle with the same thoughts, addictions, fears and bondages we did before we chose to follow Christ. We feel stuck in the past, carrying the heavy weights of what we did or what was done to us. The truth of our identity in Christ is hidden under the dark veil of lies that we believe about ourselves, others and God.
At Wellsprings of Freedom International, we combine inner-healing and spiritual warfare prayer that allows people to walk in long-term freedom in Christ. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we help clients to pull up the roots of pain, betrayal, mistrust, abandonment, and rejection in their lives that have been created by wounds or deep hurts. We carefully walk through any areas of unforgiveness and bitterness that may be present in a client’s life. Debilitating lies that clients have believed are exposed and the Holy Spirit speaks His life-transforming truth.
All of this is done in the context of what we call “freedom sessions.” Freedom sessions are three-hour prayer sessions facilitated by a loving team of trained volunteers with various spiritual gifts to help a client experience spiritual freedom. It’s gentle, loving, powerful, and life changing!
